If you’re straight, you may be unaware that members of the LGBTQ community are still widely discriminated against by their co-workers, unless you’re one of the 31 percent of people actively participating in that discrimination.
It’s that time again: every ten years the government tries to tally us up in a census so they can have an accurate idea of the make up of this country. The census helps to shape and define policy supporting different demographics, and it’s very difficult to do that when certain demographics aren’t included. That may…
A show where well-dressed teens gently bop around to the big hits while maintaining an appropriate distance apart hardly seems like it would be a hot bed of sexual experimentation, but American Bandstand apparently featured a crew of Philadelphia kids who had more than dancing in common.
OUTVETS is a group of New England-based LGBTQ veterans who have been around since 2014. They’ve marched in both of the last two South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parades, and expected to do so again this year. However, the organizers of the parade, the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council, apparently booted them from…
When Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast is released in Russia, viewing will be limited to those over the age of 16.

In a critical, if protracted, move towards representation, French Vogue has featured transgender model Valentina Sampaio on the cover of its March issue. A native of Brazil, Sampaio is the first transgender person to appear on the magazine’s cover.
You may recall that last summer, we celebrated some glorious news: the imminent production of a film chronicling the romance between writers Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West. Well, my darlings, I return tonight to report the titular stars of Vita and Virginia. Our Woolf will be portrayed by Eva Green, our…
The Trump administration—not a big fan of injunctions lately or being told what to do, period—is also obviously fine with legal restrains so long as they help pave the way for intolerance and inequity.
Thousands of demonstrators gathered around New York City’s Stonewall Inn on Saturday, a week after President Donald Trump signed an executive order temporarily banning immigration to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

This week, the 2017 Coachella line-up was released to a typical flurry of excitement. Along with headliners Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead, the big news was that the popular Indio, California festival was finally able to nab Beyoncé for an official spot—as the first woman headliner in ten years.
Dan Patrick, the proudly transphobic lieutenant governor of Texas, announced plans to introduce an anti-trans bathroom bill similar to North Carolina’s HB2 back in November. One part of the sweeping, ultra right-wing agenda Patrick is pushing in 2017 is his “Women’s Privacy Act,” based on what he says is a “women and…
Meryl Streep just called the friendly Connecticut shelf builder she singlehandedly keeps in business and asked him for “the usual,” because she’s gone and won herself another major award.
