Hard To Resist: New Feminist/Queer/Minority Performance Series In NYC vs. Trump Comments (0)

This sounds like a great idea for combatting the wave of anti-LGBTQ (for starters) policies and attitudes about to be unleashed by the — gulp — Trump Administration:

SANCTUARY, a home for feminist/queer/minority voices will take up residence at HERE beginning on Inauguration Day, Jan 20th as part of the Sublet Series. SANCTUARY is a pop-up venue for artists and activists to come together as a community and respond to current events, in particular the fears and anxieties felt in anticipation of the coming administration.

SANCTUARY opens on January 20th with an Inaugural Ball and continues with a full month of work by more than 50 different artists from a wide range of backgrounds. The schedule includes new theatre works; panel discussions with major arts leaders; and a variety of dance, concert, and other non-traditional works.

SANCTUARY will transform the mainstage at HERE into an immersive venue that draws on the history of activist/counter culture spaces. Audiences and artists alike will commiserate, process, grieve, organize, learn, and ultimately unite in celebration of the values we refuse to let America turn its back on.

Among the most interesting offerings:

Next Fagg*t Nation by Scott Davis and Spencer Armstrong

Utilizes the groundbreaking novel Fagg*ts, a variety of gay literature, and investigative interviews with gay men, artists, educators, and influential drag queens as a catalyst for examining the current gay landscape. It holds a mirror up to the younger generation of gay men to bring a call to action; the fight to acquire knowledge of the past in order to make future change is not over.

LGBTQ Nation Allows Poll To Be Hacked In Favor Of Milo Yiannopoulos, Gets Exclusive Q&A In Exchange Comments (0)

I'm shocked to report that LGBTQ Nation, a large gay Web site with a huge Facebook following (over 1 million likes) ran 13419039_10153591710816717_7090025163508871618_n a reader poll for its LGBTQ Person of 2016, and its editors put forth horrible right-wing douchebag Milo Yiannopoulos as one of the choices, equating him with pro-LGBTQ individuals and even the victims of the Pulse massacre.

When Yiannopoulous used his online followers — who are largely not gay and not down with gay rights except for enjoying the existence of a gay man who speaks out against liberals and hates on trans people — LGBTQ Nation refused to disqualify him. They also allowed Breitbart to campaign for Milo.

Now that he has received the most votes, presumably from very few of its actual readers, you know, the people they serve, they not only are honoring the win, they're giving him a platform from which to spew his hate speech — they have announced they will do an exclusive Q&A with him.

There is no difference between him and someone like Roy Cohn — he is not a hero, and he is not someone to take lightly. It's appalling that LGBTQ Nation, clearly lapping up the influx of traffic, did not exercise better judgment. Liberals should not shoot themselves in the foot by accommodating their foes under the guise of being open-minded; the other side does not do this and is currently in power.

If they're looking for a real editor, I'm available.

Until then, I urge you all to unlike LGBTQ Nation on Facebook here after letting them know why their decision is a poor one. I won't be linking to them anymore.

Apparently, MAC thinks there are women who see Caitlyn Jenner as some kind of beauty icon.

She looks fine, but I don't think this line is going to do well.

Meanwhile, Maybelline is hiring an actual dude to rep their brand:

North Carolina Republicans Fail To Repeal Anti-LGBTQ H.B. 2 Comments (0)

The Republican-controlled North Carolina legislature has reneged on a promise to repeal the state's disgusting anti-LGBTQ law, H.B. 2, even after the city of Charlotte repealed it's LGBTQ rights measure in anticipation of the rollback.

You can tell a Republican is lying when their lips are moving, but that doesn't go far enough — I think they lie in their dreams, too. I wish more would lie in state. North Carolina's going to have a tough slog ridding itself of the lasting effects of the outgoing administration's last-second power grab, let alone the ill effects of enacting H.B. 2 in the first place.
