National LGBTQ Task Force Decries Freddie Gray Decision Comments (0)

National LGBTQ Task Force Executive Director Rea Carey has released the following no-nonsense statement on the ridiculous decision in the Freddie Gray case that acquitted an officer of any wrongdoing:

Our thoughts and prayers are with Freddie Gray's family, friends and community. Police-related killings of young black men have become a regular occurrence across our nation. The frequency of police violence underscores the urgency of reform. We must intensify our efforts to reform policing and the broken criminal justice system, which disproportionately targets and harms black people. Together we can and must create a nation that truly delivers freedom, justice, and equality for all.

I'm heartened when gay groups speak out on issues of injustice that are not gay-specific, just as I am when black groups and leaders speak up for gay rights. There is plenty of crossover. Sappy but, we're all in this together.

Except the Libertarians, who need to get off my goddamn roads.

Ambrosia Starling: Fighting Gay Marriage Is RUDE, Y'All Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 8.35.01 PMStarling speaks about Moore (Video still via AL.com)

Drag queen Ambrosia Starling is proving to be an effective and consistent voice against the anti-gay marriage forces of her home state, Alabama.

Chief Justice Roy Moore, asked to ID his greatest foe, named Starling; he's now booted from the bench for the time being, which she's still standing.

The Guardian reports:

“This is the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave’,” Starling said. “But right now there are people who are free, and others who are brave. I believe we can all be free.”

Starling prefers “she” and speaks with the soft, rounded vowels of someone raised in the wiregrass of south-east Alabama. Her harshest words come when talking about Moore’s professed Christianity. He was removed from the bench once before, in 2003, for refusing the US supreme court’s order to remove the Ten Commandments from his courtroom.

“He shoves hate and fear into God’s mouth,” Starling said. “He puts the devil’s words on God’s tongue. Very rarely am I met with rudeness or unkindness when I go buy panty hose and I’ve got a beard going, or I go in the Christian donation store to pick out a dress. These people are not as hateful and spiteful as the politicians are pushing them to be.”

Viva drag!

How The First Federal Inmate To Get SRS Behind Bars Wasn't & Didn't Comments (0)

613658_1280x720(Image via fair use)

Convicted murderer Michelle-Lael Norsworthy won a federal lawsuit in 2015 that should have meant she'd become the first federal inmate granted state-funded SRS while incarcerated. Her joy turned to disappointment when, as California Sunday reports:

But that night, flipping through news channels, she didn’t account for the parole notice sitting on the shelf, the one her correctional counselor handed her nine months earlier. The board had moved up her next hearing by nearly two years, the counselor told her, because of “a change in circumstances or new information.” She’d been denied parole just a year before. The day she got the new parole notice, she handed it to a lifer friend on the yard and asked: “What do you think this means?” He took a long look at the paper and said, “It means they’re trying to get out of giving you a vagina.”

After being locked up in for 28 years and being gang-raped for six hours (and contracting hepatitis C) once her transgender status became known, it was a crushing development—ironically, being granted freedom could forestall her dream of fully transitioning. And the government's decision to parole her was based on the political ramifications of having to provide SRS, not based on merit.

With that, whether Michelle deserved surgery became a question of her constitutional rights. The Eighth Amendment entitles every prisoner to necessary medical treatment, but whether sex-reassignment surgery fits the definition of “medically necessary” for inmates has been the subject of a decades-long debate.

Check out the rest of this fascinating story over at California Sunday.

Sinéad O'Connor MISSING, POSSIBLY SUICIDAL Comments (0)

It's a bad stretch for pop stars on bicycles—less than a month after Prince was last seen riding his bike during a Walgreens run, Sinéad O'Connor has been reported missing outside Chicago after failing to return from a bike ride.

O'Connor is characterized as “missing, possibly suicidal” by cops.

O'Connor made headlines when she accused Arsenio Hall of being a bitch for Eddie Murphy and Prince, and for supplying Prince with drugs, accusations for which she was promptly sued by Hall.

Of course, it was O'Connor who went to #1 singing the Prince-penned “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

6-PACK/politics — Obama Administration's Free-To-Pee Decree + Skelos Nephew Arrested (Too) + Anti-Obamacare Lawsuit Succeeds + The Stigma Of Being Pro-Hillary + Bernie's Weak In California + Why Warren's Dinging Trump! Comments (0)

*widget boy culturePresident Obama will issue a decree stating that every school must allow students to use whichever bathroom corresponds to their gender identity. Not a law, a threat.

*widget boy cultureThe nephew of disgraced NY politico Dean Skelos (who's off to jail) was arrested for grabbing a reporter's wrist, injuring her and damaging her phone.

*widget boy cultureThe House GOP has won an anti-Obamacare lawsuit that will not knock the wind out of the program, but will ... raise insurance rates for the poor. Great work.

*widget boy cultureThe stigma of being with her: “I’ve been called a '$hill' more times than I can count.”

*widget boy cultureBernie's hobbled going into California—parted ways with state director, low on cash, no new ads.

*widget boy cultureElizabeth Warren thinks she's gotten under Donald Trump's skin because of “... the idea that he has to be held accountable; I don't think he likes that.”

*widget boy cultureIn a diplomatic show of party unity, Bernie Sanders says the Democrats are “courting disaster” if they nominate Hillary “simply to protect the status quo.”

*widget boy cultureFEC issues 639-page document on election-law violations by the Sanders campaign, a problem Hillary and Trump don't have. (And for which Hillary would be hanged.)

*widget boy culture1%er T. Boone Pickens backs Trump & his Muslim ban, jokes about old age: “I do think Donald Trump is smart enough that he is going to bring in people to help him.”

*widget boy cultureTed Cruz is still trying to wreak havoc with delegates, focusing on his home state of Texas, continues to be (minor) thorn in Trump's side.

*widget boy cultureThe fifth major HB2 lawsuit in North Carolina is the most bizarre. What's next, suing individual urinals?

*widget boy cultureGay marriage won, but other liberal causes might have a far tougher time going forward. Which is why this gay blogger will keep on posting about them.
