Marching On Comments (0)

Today is the 20th anniversary of the 1993 March on Washington in D.C. I took the bus down alone, reading an uncorrected galley of the Randy Shilts book Conduct Unbecoming, which I'd gotten from my co-worker Michael Denneny. Denneny is in the news lately for confessing that "Patient Zero" was a made up ploy for publicity for Shilts's And the Band Played On.

Once there, I recall meeting up with friends and being awed by the sheer numbers. I made sure to get a numbered wristband: Mine was #669! I guess I was early.

I remember this image was everywhere:

I've never felt so blown away by being a part of the gay community, not before, not since. 

QUESTION: Who'da thunk it that just 20 years later, gays in the military would be a moot point and we'd be pushing rapidly toward full marriage equality? ANSWER: We thunk it. We did. That day, everything seemed possible. And you know what? It was.

I was excited to receive these images from Australian photographer Tatjana Plitt and am happy to share them in the above gallery. These are from a project she's been working on called Gay Warriors that captures portraits of same-sex couples who served under Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

As Plitt points out, the elimination of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, while a huge step, has not ended gay soldiers' problems thanks tot he existence of DOMA.

Plitt describes her work as paying "homage to the historic imagery of the 17th century marriage and family portraits," which I think comes across beautifully.

She hopes to conclude with at least 50 couples. If you like her work so far, please visit her Kickstarter and help her see it through.

Joan Crawford Is Not. One. Of. Rick's. FANS! Comments (3)

With thanks to José: Rick Santorum is such an ignorant douchebag, anyone who supports him has earned my enmity...and Joan Crawford, who decided rolling over in her grave was too passive, is none too pleased either...

Hail the Conquering Hero 4Fittingly, this is from Hail the Conquering Hero (1944)

Chexy chooses Franklin Pangborn as his Friday Face in honor of Veteran's Day—yep, the man who personified the cinematic sissy was a World War I hero. Fabulous! Seriously, fabulous to remember him in this way as a reminder that effeminacy is not a bad thing and is not necessarily a sign of weakness.
