WIDGETWerq the World: Andrew Garfield did a bewigged, backflipping Whitney Houston lip-sync at Werq the World that might've unseated Nina Bo'Nina Brown: 

WIDGETSF Gate: Those male vultures in a long-term relationship must be open — they've now added a chick to the mix.

WIDGETPeople: CNN fires Kathy Griffin. They took longer to decide than Squatty Potty.

WIDGETJoe.My.God.: Comey is set to publicly testify, maybe next week, that Trump pressured him to end the probe into Russia's ties with Trump's inner circle.

WIDGETThe Guardian: Conservs & Libs duke it out over whether Theresa May is anti-gay or a stealth LGBTQ champion.

WIDGETThe Sun: Quiz-show figure Paul Sinha casually came out on the show during its May 29 episode, referencing his male ex in a light moment.

Mila Jam's Soaring LGBTQ Anthem FACES — They Belong! Comments (0)

Happy International Trans Day of Visibility!

Mila Jam, a trans musician and superstar-in-the-making, just released the uplifting song “Faces,” Unnamedwhich is a bona fide LGBTQ anthem.

Better yet, in an age when we're all unapologetic narcissists, she steps aside and allows countless familiar (Candis Cayne! Laverne Cox! Ari Gold! Tituss Burgess!) and otherwise faces to take over her music video for the track — you gotta watch. It's that happy feeling you get when you show up at your first gay-pride parade and see the sheer numbers and diversity of the other people like and semi-like you who showed up, too.

From a press release, Mila says:

“Faces” is about looking in that mirror and hearing do I belong, am I enough, will someone love me for who I really am? We wear smiles all the time but hide in fear and loathing because we feel different. The journey is universal no matter who you are. And, working through the dark uncertainties is all about learning to radiate your own light. Bravely. Unapologetically. Authentically. Happily. 

All iTunes proceeds from the single will be donated to the ONEPULSE Foundation to help the victims of the Pulse massacre.

Laverne Cox Writes Stirring Essay for INSTYLE In Wake Of SCOTUS's Colossal Gavin Grimm Blunder Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 6.09.15 PM(Video still via Instagram @lavernecox)

The Supreme Court today declined to hear the case of Gavin Grimm, a trans teen fighting for bathroom rights, and in the process vacated a lower court's ruling in his favor. SCOTUS cited Donald Trump's policy, which was to scotch the positive guidelines put forth by President Obama in 2016.

Now, actor and trans activist Laverne Cox is laying it on the line in InStyle, explaining bluntly, “These bathroom laws aren't really about bathrooms.”

From her piece:

... don’t be fooled: These bathroom laws aren’t really about bathrooms. When the current administration rescinded the guidelines for how transgender students should be treated in schools, they made it all about bathrooms. But the Obama-era guidelines also included pronoun and name preferences for these young people as well. These are important components of how trans kids should be treated in school, but all that is lost when we sensationalize this issue. It’s not about bathrooms. It’s about the humanity of trans people, about us having the right to exist in a public space.

Damn right. And Trump and his insane minions are fighting to remove that right. The same principle applies to all anti-gay laws It's about making it harder for us to live.
