Whether you’re going to this year’s A-Camp and need a Met Gala outfit for the last night dance or you just want some more sequined metallic separates in your life, these are the pieces you need.
“My date got incredibly drunk and ended up passing out in the back of the limo, facedown in my boobs. It was not the romantic prom story I felt I’d been promised.”
Ari Fitz debuts PROMBOYISH, a two-part miniseries spotlighting solid tomboy prom looks.
It’s prom season and there’s no better time to look at these adorable queer, lesbian, bisexual and otherwise-identified humans going to prom with each other and looking damn good doing it. Plus a chance to submit your own!
Obama’s big statement on conversion therapy, Walter Scott’s murder, anti-abortion law in Kansas, discrimination against non-bisexual people alleged at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, and more!
Greta Melendez and Lily Cohen are the latest in a month of queer homecoming winners and a much longer line of kids battling for the right to wear tiaras in public while gay.
PROM IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT WILL EVER HAPPEN TO YOU IN ALL OF LIFE. This week, we join the Glee students as they experience their junior prom and hit each other in the face.
Jade Goodwin-Carter wanted to wear a tuxedo to prom. As you can imagine, all hell broke lose (literally) at St. Francis High, and now she’s allowed to wear the tuxedo because we won a thing.
Dear Abby, you gave Belinda really bad advice about going to prom with her gay friend. Let me help you with that.
“Santana is a lesbian. She might not be ready to come out yet, but she is.”
Oh look there’s another high school administration that’s discriminating against an out lesbian couple at a formal school dance. It’s like they’ve never seen Mean Girls, don’t they know school dances are about accepting difference and being cute?
Hannah Williams tried to bring her girlfriend to a formal and her school principle said it would ruin her ability to meet boys. Also Obama had a gay cross-dressing nanny, and Senator Tom Duane was arrested standing up for the rights of people with HIV/AIDS.
This week there are many parts of the Sunday Funday that we cannot fully process/understand, like how ABC Family Originals factor into the march towards equality and world peace, or how relevant Jared Leto still is, because I am not sure what he’s done since Fight Club, or actually who he even played in that. Also, did you know Lady Gaga was in an episode of the Sopranos? What is happening I don’t even
Constance McMillen saves the day in a landmark ruling where she gets her money and Itawamba County School District gets its first gender/sexuality inclusive anti-discrimination policy, the first of its kind in a Mississippi public school! Also Dan Choi got arrested again.
Two gay best friends won prom king & queen by a landslide, American Apparel gets shadier by the minute, Judy Shepard’s memoir deemed “homophobic” in the Bible Belt – WTF, Pride dos and don’ts. We bring you an unfortunately non-Alex Vega Lady Gaga recap, and exciting news for celesbian chef Cat Cora, as well as a new lesbian indie film.
Constance McMillen is now seeking unspecified monetary damages in her case against Itawamba High School, citing public humiliation. Even worse, Westboro Baptist Church has announced they’ll be picketing her graduation to remind everyone that dykes are ‘filthy.’ Also; more on Scott Baio’s evolving lesbian rage, Gay tourism, forced gay marriage, bisexuals aren’t gay enough, Sikhism and feminism, tv bans plus size ads, and headache fun!
We love nothing more than Tina Fey being Sarah Palin, amirite? Well, we have an infographic to prove it. Constance McMillen has now been invited to more queer-inclusive proms than we were aware existed, Lady Gaga tells you about safe sex, and her stalker fans tell you about her dressing room. Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann are huge lezzies, selling cars to gays, gay priests in Utah, NEWSIES MUSICAL and oh, Tila Tequila.
Constance McMillen’s treatment is a nasty reminder of how high school kids can be cruel, especially when LGBTs are involved. We overanalyze, Angela Chase-style. Basketball players might or might not be changing beauty standards, the first female Cherokee leader died yesterday, racism is bad for your health, and Yale starts a student-teacher sex ban.
Constance McMillen continues to be f*cked over: her school sent her to a fake prom with “learning disabled” students. Also, employers are exploiting unpaid interns and it could be illegal. Why do gay men sometimes make fun of vaginas? Plus, it’s been a year since Iowa allowed gay marriage, Lambda Legal needs your help, and Obama may get another Supreme Court nomination.
A ruling is made in the case of Constance McMillen and the heteronormative prom and Newsweek interviews Dan Choi about his new radical stance on political action. Prop 8 opponents have to give show the other side internal emails and memos, which could push back the verdict on the Prop 8 trial. Also: two Malawi men arrested for getting engaged go on trial soon, and Lambda Legal is challenging for same-sex marriage in NJ.
Closeted gays play basketball, lesbians play softball, gay boys rank each other on websites that get startup funds (bah!), Constance McMillen has her day in court and the school officials whipped out some doozies, a good lesbian suit is hard to find, Elisabeth Hasslebeck and Whoopi fight about health care, also wait ’til you see these portraits of soldiers affected by Don’t Ask Don’t Tell!
