Police wear pride flags for publicity, to avoid critique, and to escape accountability for being fundamentally anti-Black/indigenous/queer/woman. We wear pride flags for revolution, resistance, and survival. Police are not our allies.

A Federal Court Just Ruled For Gay Rights In A…

A Federal Court Just Ruled For Gay Rights In A Major Discrimination Case:


A federal appeals court on Monday ruled that a 1964 civil rights law bans anti-gay workplace discrimination. The decision rebukes the Trump administration — which had argued against a gay worker in the case — and hands progressives a win in their strategy to protect LGBT employees with a drumbeat of lawsuits.

The dispute hinges on whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination on the basis of sex, also bans workplace discrimination due to sexual orientation.

The Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled Monday, “We now hold that sexual orientation discrimination constitutes a form of discrimination ‘because of … sex,’ in violation of Title VII.” In doing so, the court overruled a lower court — and a precedent from two previous court cases — and remanded the case to be litigated in light of their reading of Title VII.

Athlete Gus Kenworthy’s history-making moment during this year’s Olympics: kissing his boyfriend, Matt Wilkas, onscreen. More details:

NBC also openly acknowledged Wilkas as Kenworthy’s boyfriend, and panned multiple times during its broadcast to Kenworthy’s mother being surrounded by rainbow flags. While much has been made of Kenworthy being the first gay male action sports star at an Olympics, coverage of the finals appears to be the first time a major American network has shown a kiss between an out male athlete and another man during live coverage of the Olympics.

The broadcast of a gay Olympian kissing his romantic partner marks a major change for NBC. The network just two years ago covered swimmer Tom Daley’s medal run at the Olympics with barely a mention of his sexuality, despite Daley’s boyfriend Dustin Lance Black, an Oscar-winning screenwriter, being present at the games in Rio.

Meet 4 historic icons who made the Harlem Renaissance ‘as gay as it was black’: undefined



So I was doing some thinking about what I was scared of the most before coming out and living my life authentically.  My fears turned out to be so very wrong, but I am going to tell you what my fear was on coming out as transgender.  I think the more we say our fears out loud the less scary they are and the less real they seem to feel. 

So my biggest fear in terms of being transgender was that no one would truly love me for me. 

And wow… was I EVER wrong. Being myself made me more lovable than ever before.  I feel when you love yourself you are able to be loved entirely.  

What were your biggest fears on coming out as transgender? and how did you overcome them?

The reasoning behind suppressing femininity in…

The reasoning behind suppressing femininity in men’s skating was that if the sport looked like it was for sissies, no boys would sign up to do it. In retrospect, what a ludicrous proposition that was! Even the most masculine of skaters weren’t going to get fist bumps from the football team for doing “tough” skating to the Rocky soundtrack. Did they ever consider that a sport that leaned in to embracing femininity might actually attract the boys who don’t identify with traditionally masculine sports? Corner the market on those gentle boys! I’m certain that after seeing Rippon gyrate to club beats at the Olympics, a certain subset of boys are going to demand skates for Christmas, and they won’t know exactly why until years later. What a nice change of pace for queer kids to see a specific and joyful gay sensibility being celebrated rather than degraded!
