What's So Funny About Peace, Love and Solidarity?

Another well-meaning article that offers no supporting evidence for its claims that queer minorities are being "denied the rewards" of the LGBTQ movement. (And denied by whom?) Every city, state and federal law to protect queer people applies to queer people of color. And every bad thing happening to queer people of color is also happening at a disproportionate rate to non-queer people of color. Shocker: Stonewall didn't fix institutional racism! As for the trans smoking gun about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act excluding transgender people: It was an attempt to get something on the books -- and guess what? It didn't pass for LGB people, either.

Still, if bringing more attention to queer minorities who contributed is the objective, I can accept a little shoddy reporting ... unless it leads to more of THIS

Song of the Day: 'Rebound City' by Bleached

Every time I discover a new band I tell myself, you could have been doing this the past 30 years. (This Bleached song is like the second coming of Holly Beth Vincent, while “Kiss You Goodbye” is the female response to Strange Names.) But the way I see it is this: It's this much more special my way! (Shoutout to Best Coast -- the last "new" band I discovered -- for retweeing this.)
