Times are hard, but no one knows better than the gays that if you work for it, things can get immeasurably better. Here’s a snapshot of what the job market looks like for us right now, and why we feel better about it than straight people do.
Kate Moss and Lea T are kissing on the cover of Love magazine. People who don’t know anything at all about trans people felt they needed to write ignorant things about this event. Also it’s a hot cover.
Were you lying awake last night just burning to know Antonin Scalia’s innermost thoughts on your status as a marginalized group? Well, today is your lucky day.
Good news, being trans is cool and hip now and not at all related to outrageously high rates of violence and widespread oppression and marginalization!
U.S. Senators have begun to respond to the recent rash of bullying-related suicides in the LGBT community, and gender identity made it into the first draft of the bills. Color us shocked, but proud.
It’s tempting to look for people to blame in the wake of the terrible tragedies this past week has brought, but it’s best to resist that urge. Oh wait, no. You can blame these people.
Angelina Jolie is robbing Shiloh of her true self, which is apparently hidden by comfortable shoes, cute polo shirts and lizard backpacks. IT’S AN OUTRAGE! HIDE YOUR GIRLS BEFORE THEY GET INTERRUPTED!
One half of the queer couple pardoned in Malawi has gone missing. Another couple — a trans woman and gay man — were arrested in Pakistan for trying to get married (allegedly). Gay haters use the Bible as an excuse, not a legit argument. There’s a lot of the top 10 cute animals harmed by the oil spill. Arizona’s immigration law targets women. And thank god for Jon Stewart for bringing the lulz and the awesome social commentary & Barack Obama for tweeting his love for gays this month.
Now that American Eagle staffers don’t have to choose “gender-specific” outfits, what’s to stop them from DRESSING LIKE EWOKS? Lawyers think George Rekers gay sex controversy could call his past expert witness testimony into question. Why aren’t we talking about the sex lives of the white male Supreme Court Justices? Plus, how parents deal with Glee, how to be a good beard, and racism in beauty pageants.
Scott Moore (dubbed “the second pregnant man” by the media) and his husband Thomas (also FTM) welcomed a new baby into the world yesterday, and TMZ has photos. And the homophobia and transphobia is ‘a-flyin’.
Black History Month controversy in LA Schools likens RuPaul to OJ Simpson and Dennis Rodman as unsuitable role models, suspends three teachers. Also; stylist misquoted about Shiloh, NEW RUNAWAYS TRAILER!, Roseanne on Marie Osmond’s son, ABDC Lady Gaga challenge, Lohan at 16, Johnny Weir interview, women & Oscars & 35 Best Dance Sequences from Films!
On Wednesday we asked you if the Shiloh Jolie-Pitt “IS ANGELINA TURNING SHILOH INTO A BOY” magazine cover was offensive. You said yes. America (and glaad) agrees… but Life & Style still defends their insanity. Also! Lesbian prom controversy, an irritating NYTimes DADT Op-Ed, how to save feminism from Glenn Beck and making O Canada gender neutral.
Uganda’s backing up on the kill-the-gays bill. Also; lesbian lawyer is suing her former boss for $50 mil, Ann Nixon Cooper passes away at 107, queer the census, what it means to be trans, same-sex loving in Sweden, female athletes/horses, and lists of influential progressives and hot dead people. YEAH!
