UPDATE: Strike's ended!

Since it looks like a strike by mass-transit workers in Philly—a Democratic bastion crucial to Hillary Clinton carrying the state Tuesday—will continue through Election Day, Uber, Lyft and Zipcar have generously offered free rides that day.

The rest of the state? Y'all are on your own.

A Not-So-Beautiful Day In The Gayborhood Comments (0)

Racial tensions are thick in Philadelphia's so-called Gayborhood following the anonymous release of audio capturing a white bar owner using slurs while slamming POC for being the only ones to ever ask for free drink tickets.

Oner of ICandy Darryl DePiano has copped to making the remarks, but apologized, writing on Facebook in September:

As many of you know me and know that I am always striving for diversity, and always willing to listen, learn and grown myself, my business and my team. This was an EXTREMELY Poor Choice I made on my own many years ago and I definitely learned and continue to learn each day. I SINCERELY and Truthfully Apologize to all my Friends, Valued Customers, and Everyone that I Hurt and Offended.

I don't really buy that; he was not saying something politically incorrect, it was not a slip of the tongue, he was arguing a point back on the premise that black people are cheap and a pain in his ass—that's deeper than an off-color remark. Listen to the audio at the top of that post—that's a man very comfortable with being a racist pig.

The story on NBC News about the tensions quotes many about the oppressive atmosphere in the Gayborhood, which I imagine is a similar feeling in lots of spaces gay POC seek out.

Even the mayor has chimed in, releasing a statement that reads, in part:

There is no denying that racism and discrimination is an issue within the LGBT community. The Gayborhood should be a sanctuary for all in the LGBT community, but sadly not everyone is welcome at some of its institutions.

This racist or racially exclusionary vibe (black patrons report being carded more frequently and say some establishments ban things like Timberland boots (why???) and hooded sweatshirts (why???) in an effort to weed them out) is something white gay people have to admit exists and have to be open to talking about. We have enough enmity coming at us from Trump's anti-gay, anti-POC, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-woman insurrectionists without adding to the problem by pretending it doesn't exist.

Gay-Basher Kathryn Knott PAROLED After Just 5 Months! Comments (0)

Kathryn Knott—the daughter of a former police chief—who was convicted of participating in the anti-gay assault against Zachary Hesse and Andrew Haught in 2014, has been paroled after serving just five months in prison.

Infuriating.

The 25-year-old had been convicted of simple assault, conspiracy to commit simple assault and reckless endangerment (two counts) and sentenced to five to 10 months in prison this past February. She will serve five months on parole and then be on probation for two years, paid $2,000 and has to leave Philly during her probation except when attending to court-related issues.

The two other men charged with crimes over the assault pled guilty and were given 200 hours of community service.

The victims are suing all three. One hopes they'll take every penny she has.
