If the phenomenon that is RuPaul’s Drag Race was going to spawn some children of it’s own, consider The Boulet Brothers-Dragula as the child that ran away to join the circus. Since it’s inception three years ago, Dragula has morphed into a darkly glorious competition series for queens who truly feel that they are outside the realm of what some would consider “normal” drag. For every fresh faced debutante like Alyssa Edwards, there is an Ursula Major, and for every...

Google employees were told that they can’t protest Google’s policies if they march with the company in a Pride parade. An internal memo was obtained by The Verge that said that Google employees who planned to march with the company in the upcoming San Francisco Pride parade would be punished if they wore clothing that protested the company or otherwise made a statement against Google or its policies.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki struggled to explain the company’s ever-shifting position in responding to journalist Carlos Maza’s harassment by right-winger Steven Crowder. Two weeks ago Maza released a trove of video of Crowder referring to him as “an anchor baby, a lispy queer, a Mexican,” among other racist and homophobic slurs. Maza alleges that the harassment went on for two years before he reported it to YouTube. Initially, the video hosting site declined to do anything about the videos, saying...

YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki offered a non-apology to LGBTQ people who have experienced harassment and hate speech on the video-sharing platform in the wake of attention being drawn to Steven Crowder’s hate speech. Rightwing vlogger Steven Crowder has repeatedly targeted gay latino journalist Carlos Maza of Vox with homophobic hate speech. Maza put together a compilation of some of Crowder’s recent attacks that drew a lot of attention two weeks ago on Twitter: Since I started working at Vox, Steven Crowder...

Today, YouTube basically said that homophobic hate speech targeted towards a specific individual doesn’t violate its terms of service. Its decision seemingly contradicts its own policies and supposed support of LGBTQ content creators. Also today, YouTube announced its plan to remove Nazis, Holocaust deniers and other extremists from its platform, but even its guidelines on that seem a little unclear. The video sharing platform came under increased scrutiny this week after gay Latinx Vox journalist Carlos Maza posted a viral Twitter...

YouTube has continued to muck up its own attempts to regulate hate speech on its platform with two recent developments. First, it said today that users can make hateful, even homophobic statements targeting a single individual as long as the statements are part of a larger argument. Second, the company’s recent efforts to ban extremists has included demonetizing videos of journalists who make their money covering racism and white supremacists. These developments come after yesterday’s decision by YouTube to allow right-wing...
