Sunday Funday is Popping the Question to Her Girlfriend By Way of Revolutionary Rap Verse

Happy Sunday Funday! I have spent this entire week recovering from that time I worked like 60 hours in four days with almost no sleep in between each day, so that’s where I’m at. I’ve got a super-long to-do list, a box of Trefoils, and a sparkling clean glass water bottle and I’m ready to re-enter this world.

Oh, and I found you a bunch of good gay news to read through today, too! Enjoy.

This Lesbian Hip-Hop Duo Is Fighting Homophobia

There’s a lot of work left to do in Cuba in order to guarantee LGBT equality. And that’s where Krudas Cubensi comes in.

“Music is a very important tool in educating our people and letting them know who we are and what we do. Through music we fight for our rights.”

Laws, Meet Order

+ Into cool dudes with a grandpa vibe who fight for your rights? Check out this dude who is leading the charge against ex-gay therapy in Congress!

+ (Colorado’s queer legislators want to put an end to ex-gay therapy, too.)

Oklahoma’s 27 Anti-LGBT Bills Are All Dead. I don’t even wanna try to top that title, it’s too good.

+ Michigan just made it slightly easier for trans folks to change the gender listed on their driver’s licenses.

It’s not a good time until the gays show up, after all.

Sorry Georgia, Better Luck Next Time

Georgia wants to pass one of those so-called “religious liberty” / “license to discriminate against queer and trans people” bills. Except, um, no business is willing to stand for it. Apple, the motherfucking NFL, and over 480 other national and local businesses have come out swinging against it:

The NFL has been joined by multiple other groups in speaking out against the bill. Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Friday that he believes a “diverse, inclusive and welcoming Georgia is critical to our citizens and the millions of visitors coming to enjoy all that our great state has to offer” and that the bill “undermines these principles and would have long-lasting negative impact on our state and the people of Georgia.” More than 480 businesses — including Atlanta-based Delta, Coca-Cola, and Home Depot — have come out against the bill. On Friday, Apple added its voice to the protests, urging Gov. Deal to veto the legislation and “send a clear message that Georgia’s future is one of inclusion, diversity and continued prosperity.”

…Indeed, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau have said that, if visitors begin boycotting Georgia over the bill, it would mean a $1 billion to $2 billion hit to the state’s economy.

Black Lives Matter Will Be SF Pride’s Grand Marshal

SF Pride Parade announced this week that their proud Organizational Grand Marshal will be the Black Lives Matter movement!

The choice of Black Lives Matter as a grand marshal should come as no surprise to activists. In her 40 Under 40 interview, Garza explained how the fights for LGBT and racial equality are intertwined and intersectional.

“Just like we don’t live in a two-dimensional world, we don’t live two-dimensional lives,” she said. “Our lives are multidimensional, and because of the systems that we live under, there are particular punishments and sanctions for different aspects of who we are.”

  1. I would just really love a fashion post hosted by that couple!

    And also for that to be a scene in a movie – and for that movie to win every damn award going. Up against stiff competition from dozens of other movies with queer woc, so many that you have to think hard about which one you will take your date to on a Saturday night.

    Wishing them every joy and happiness <3.

  2. I love Sunday Funday. I never know what to comment after I read some of the articles that are shared because I read a lot of them and enjoy them and learn something but don’t know how to bring it back.

    Also, I love Sundays because y’all only post 2 posts usually and I get to catch up on all the Autostraddle content I’ve been bookmarking all week or month or yeat.

    Also also I’m tipsy and really happy.
