A funny video by comedians Michael Henry, Tom Lenk, and Jimmy Fowlie discusses whether gay men should use the word “faggot.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXvmi5Nhc4c Personally, I don’t use the word with my friends and chosen family. There are so many better words to describe one another, based on love and mutual respect. “Faggot” is a term intended to hurt others, and we should be building each other up instead of tearing each other down. Some people think we should “reclaim” the term. I don’t...

Love Makes a Family: 'Together a mighty group of rainbow family advocates are creating history' In a region where LGBTI families have very few rights, a ‘mighty group’ of people are coming together to sing the praises of rainbow families. ‘Families’ is the theme of this year’s International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia’s (IDAHOT). So, Planet Ally and the International Family Equality Day (IFED) came together to organize the first annual Asia-Pacific Rainbow Families Forum. The two day event in Hong...
lgbt cartoons

LGBT cartoon characters have always been part of your world. Much has been made about the “exclusively gay moment” in the live-action Beauty and the Beast, but a closer look at the Disney archives shows that LeFou is hardly the House of Mouse’s first queer character. They may not have been out of the closet, but these animated folk definitely pinged our gaydar. Captain Hook Peter Pan’s fashionable foe leads a ship full of men on a mission to capture a group of...

“All kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”  If you’re still worried about a ‘90s kid’s television franchise maintaining its relevance with a 2017 reboot, you must be thinking about something other than Power Rangers. The film, which already looks to have special effects of any other superhero blockbuster, is going for a genuine high school feel with its protagonists, mainly Yellow Ranger Trini (Becky G), who will have a moment when she’s revealed to be part...

Showing the LGBTQ community some love in the advertising game has become mainstream in recent years, marking a new era of public consciousness and mirroring advancements in the struggle for equality. With a new administration in the U.S. whose attitudes towards that struggle are murky at best, companies that choose to feature queer themes do so at the risk of antagonizing the government. For that reason, they should be applauded even more when they do the right thing and celebrate diversity. Here’s...

Germany has the largest LGBT population in Europe, according to research. The news comes from Berlin’s Dalia Research GmbH, which published the results of a Europe-wide EuroPulse study, which interviewed 10,000 people across 28 EU countries. According to the study, reported by Vice.de Germany leads Europe in terms of LGBT population size, with 7.4% of Germans identifying themselves as LGBT. When asked to place themselves on a Kinsey scale between exclusively heterosexual and exclusively homosexual, 10.9% of Germans said they weren’t exclusively...

Not to over-generalize too much here, but let’s be clear: the gays love Meryl Streep. And you’ll be glad to know that the feeling is mutual. The gays, Meryl gets you. She really really gets you. In a recent interview, Meryl opened up about her queer roles, like in Angels in America and her role in 1979’s Manhattan. Surprisingly, she only discovered she’s a gay icon in 2012, when she caught wind of a show where gay men were performing her scenes. She’s...

Openly gay artist Brandon McGill has created a photo series that explores queer love and polyamory love. The artist used body painting and human emotions as main tools. The portraits displayed in the amazing photo series are of different unique couples: gay, straight, monogamous, polyamorous. McGill explained what his art meant to him. “I paint to figure out what is going on in the world,” he said. “You can only be exposed to so much. It’s great to see what bonds people together.” Not only that he...
gay teen

In an age where progress is vital, especially the progress, or rather change of human principles and perceptions, there are teens who lead a revolutionary movement to eliminate prejudices and reach teens that are alike and encourage them. They are the teens of America, and they stand for eliminating stigma, for acceptance and positive non-conformism. They speak for freedom and equality and don't care for gender norms. A study conducted by J. Howard Thompson's Innovation Group revealed that more than a half teens...
queer people

Being a queer person reflects in all aspects of our lives. And clothes are part of life as they express how we feel and give us comfort. As a queer woman I have always found it difficult to find clothes that would reflect my style and personality, and sometimes I would end up at menswear section. For other queer people who find it hard finding the right outfit, this new Brooklyn based clothing company will soon be producing clothes to satisfy...
There is no straight woman

I tried, I really did. The task was to review the recent announcement that women are never straight, but are instead gay or bisexual. In doing so however, I ventured some place that no one should ever go. A forbidden land, full of horrors, that once entered is difficult to escape from. I'm not talking about Mordor, or the Dark Web - I'm talking about the comments sections. Newspapers yesterday fell over themselves to report on a recent survey by the...
