50 Years Of LGBT Events In 5 Minutes Comments (0)

Looks like you picked the wrong week to stop viewing incredible gay-themed short films.

Leo Herrera has updated his The Fortune Teller—which squishes about 50 years of LGBT history, news and imagery into about five minutes—to include PrEP and the mass shooting in Orlando.

It is a Kenneth Anger-like amalgam of all aspects of the LGBT experience, including the sexy and flamboyant and out-there stuff some LGBT people worry won't endear us to the masses. But hey, if you have gay sex, they gay-hate you no matter how polite you are and no matter how conservatively attired.

Click here to find out where all of the clips are from.

The Violence At Pulse Did Not Come Out Of Nowhere Comments (0)

Matthew Hays writes about the nightmarish events at Pulse, and what led us to this moment:

I think I first saw it when I would make the pilgrimage from Montreal to Toronto for the country's largest Pride celebrations, in the 90s. There I would join thousands of others as we would march down the streets, eventually stopping to party enthusiastically in the streets, often kissing one another, sometimes removing much of our clothing, always celebrating the fact that, on this day at least, we had nothing to hide and everything to celebrate.

It's not really like that on most days, when LGBT people have to watch what they say and how they act in public. I remember seeing Christian extremists protesting on the sidelines of the parade. “What's stopping them?” I would ask myself.

Hays connects the violence at Pulse with violence against other minority groups—and it's increasing, not decreasing, as these groups ask for and get more power:

It happened to women famously in Montreal with the Polytéchnique massacre of 1989. There's a long history of it happening to African Americans, most recently last year, when Dylann Roof opened fire inside a predominantly African-American church in South Carolina, killing nine. For whatever reason, people feel threatened when people who have been shut out of power ask to have some. It sounds like a simple equation, but it's the ugly truth.
