D.C. Capital Pride Parade Rerouted Over No Justice No Pride Protest Comments (0)

A day ahead of the National Equality March in D.C., the D.C. Capital Pride Parade was disrupted by a group of protesters representating No Justice No Pride, who sought to call attention to the parade's “deeply problematic” sponsors.

 Joe.My.God. reports the protesters successfully blocked the parade, which had to be rerouted in order to proceed. 

Among the sponsors the protesters find inconsistent with LGBTQ rights and equality: the FBI, the NSA, the CIA, Wells Fargo, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

I must say, I do find some of those to be gross, er, partners, and it surprises me some would even want to sponsor Gay Pride, let alone be welcomed to do so. However, an argument could be made that we're taking back some of their money and using it to promote our equality and visibility; the money isn't going in the opposite direction.

And this year, with our rights on the line, it feels counterproductive to attempt to rob tens of thousands of people of their annual chance to march and show LGBTQ pride and have fun.

I can only surmise it will pit most of the community against this group and have the opposite effect.

Chelsea Manning is speaking for the first time since her release from prison following receiving clemency from departing President Barack Obama. (Obama did not grant her a pardon.)

In a new interview with Good Morning America, she says she felt compelled to go to WikiLeaks after witnessing the messy decisions being made by the U.S. in its war against insurgents, and is adamant that she never felt the documents she leaked would harm her country.

Keep watching, and wait till the end, where she says what she would like to communicate to President Obama ...

Pride Month: You Can Be Ivanka Trump ... Or You Can Be Candace Gingrich Comments (0)

For today's profile of a prominent LGBTQ person past or present, I'm focusing on Candace-gingrich Candace Gingrich, who is lesbian-identified and genderqueer. As the post's title implies, I am not impressed with anyone giving Ivanka Trump (or any adult Trump family member) a pass because they're “just related to the guy.”

In my opinion, when you find yourself related to someone who is doing dastardly things, you don't stand by them, let alone join in the fun. And if you are an LGBTQ person and those dastardly things are anti-gay, you have a special obligation to renounce the blood family member in favor of true family.

Candace, who turned 51 yesterday, did just that — and they did it in the '90s, when it was a hell of a lot harder than it is today.

In 1995, when Candace's half-brother Newt Gingrich was the rabidly anti-LGBTQ Speaker of the House, they came out as a lesbian, criticizing Newt's politics and embarrassing him by proving that anti-LGBTQ people are actually, literally, also anti-family.

Candace continued to use the unique position into which they'd been placed by publishing the well-received memoir Accidental Activist in 1996.

Candace was HRC's National Coming Out Spokesperson for 1995, attracting the admiration of both Esquire and Ms. Gingrich's affiliation with HRC continues to this day, as part of the Youth & Campus Outreach program.

In pop culture, you couldn't miss Candace playing the reverend who married two lesbians on the iconic Friends episode, “The One with the Lesbian Wedding” (1996), a TV event that reached tens of millions of people at a time when a tiny fraction of the country supported the concept of gay marriage.

In short, if you find yourself related to someone working against you, don't let your shared DNA keep you from taking a stand for what's right. Candace has demonstrated that principle for over 20 years, and has never, ever reeked of Complicit.
