A genuinely interesting interview with gay author Christopher Rice about the Amazon debacle @Queerty: ” … they need to stop acting like a drunken elephant and starting like a gentle giant. They need to recognize their influence and their size and they need to behave accordingly,” and Unfriendly Fire author Nathaniel Frank at @huffpo on What to make of #Amazonfail.

Reunion: “This week, I’m meeting with the psychiatrist who oversaw my transition and the first few months of my re/de-transition …” (@feministe)

The Long Move into “Grey Gardens” (@the latimes)

Drew Barrymore: “Most of my best friends are gay and they all act like [Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale], talk like her, dress like her at certain moments — they all quote her all the time … I can’t tell you the level of fear and sickness I would feel when they would imitate her. They know her and love her so well — what if I do something that doesn’t feel right with them?”

    • Agreed to the yay for Mr. NY. Looks like things are comming along. Slowly but surely.

      As far as school problems go, maybe you should participate in the “Day of Silence.”

      It’s Friday, April 17th. Across the nation students come together to speak out (or lack there of) about LGBT bullying in schools. I’ve gotten it together for my school, it really isn’t hard. You can find out more on their website. :)

      P.S. Wonderful video of cat on the prowl.
