Director Ryan White reveals the double-edged sword of queer representation in ‘Visible: Out on TV’

Director Ryan White Ryan White doesn’t stop. The documentarian behind The Case Against 8 and The Keepers has enjoyed two consecutive Sundance Film Festivals with new movies having their premiere. Last year, we chatted with White about his acclaimed documentary Ask Dr. Ruth. His next feature, Assassins, comes out later this year. For the moment, though, White is focused on an epic television event. We mean that in two senses of the word. As produced by Wilson Cruz & Wanda Sykes, Visible: Out o...

New Music To Know: St. Vincent Discos, Big Freedia Karaokes & Weezer Goes To Africa

St. Vincent "Fast Slow Disco"This week is trying to put some pep in my step; that's par for the course in summer when my energy levels fall because of the heat, but music speeds up anyway. First up on my "Dance To This In The Air Conditioning Only" playlist is a rework of St. Vincent's "Slow Disco." Now it's "Fast Slow Disco," and this iteration could absolutely fit right in on the soundtrack for Pose, if Ryan Murphy or Janet Mock are reading this. Cyn "Believer"Cyn's track was another one t...

Miss USA Is Trying To Reinvent Itself Post-Trump — But Is It Working?

This story was originally published May 23, 2017.If you tuned into the Miss USA competition last weekend, you might have noticed some big changes. For the first time in the show's 65-year run, a Black scientist won the 166.82-carat crown. What's more, she was wearing her natural textured hair, sported a one-piece swimsuit, and found herself in the final two with a feminist, Indian-American immigrant — not exactly the status quo. Seen individually, these might be small wins for diversity, but t...

What Is "Pretty Privilege" — & How Does It Affect Trans Women?

I didn't encounter the words "feminized" or "feminization" until I started transitioning. Yet currently, both words occupy quite a few media inches, in reference to those who have had feminizing surgeries and, by omission, those who haven't. It's a trans concern, but one that ripples way out.When I first engaged in talking therapy to try and resolve my issues around gender, people (professionals and friends) would ask me what I was going to do to become more feminine, what surgeries might I hav...

24 Black LGBTQ+ Activists Who Changed The World

Like much of history, stories about the LGBTQ+ movement have been largely whitewashed. It was Black and Latinx people, many of them transgender women, who started the fight with police at the Stonewall Inn in 1969 — a riot that's often credited as the turning point in the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement. So why was a fictional white, gay man at the heart of the 2015 movie that depicted the riot?Black LGBTQ+ people have hardly been given their due in the stories of the LGBTQ+ community's past and ...

The True Beauty Of Gigi Gorgeous

The May morning of the MTV Movie Awards, Gigi Gorgeous sat in the dining room of her girlfriend’s Toluca Lake mansion, sipping Red Bull from a paper cup. She’d been up late the night before, she was already suffering from interminable jet lag, and it would have been nice to have another hour in bed. But Gigi was in a good mood anyway, because she was about to engage in her all-time favorite activity: Gigi was about to get glam.Plucking brushes from a mess piled on the table, a makeup artist pai...

Gabourey Sidibe Called Out These Body Shamers In The Most Badass Way

I know Gabourey Sidibe is gorgeous the way she is. You know it, too. Most importantly, she knows it. But apparently some people feel the need to make her feel bad about how she looks. Well, that plan failed miserably. The plus-size beauty clapped back at body shamers and has a lesson for everyone.Some folks love saying that they aren't trying to be rude by pointing out someone is plus size; they're just concerned for others' health. Bu they're not fooling anyone, especially Sidibe. While on Jan...

What Makes Our Country Pretty Damn Great, According To 26 National Treasures

When Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008, he did so on a message of hope and change, and a motto that said "yes we can." That message from our first Black president infused in us a promise of possibility; a promise that was fundamentally American: that together we as individuals, and also as a nation, have the power to drive our own destiny; that progress is ours for the taking, if only we do the work to achieve it."It is that promise that has always set this country apart," he said when he...

'70s Beauty Is Back — & This Time It's So Extra

You can't top a throwback. Don't believe us? This year alone, we spotted '80s-style shags and '90s flipped ends on all our favorite models and actresses. And now, it's time to hustle back into the '70s. During fashion week, there was an upswing of big, bouncy hair with glittery eyes and lips fit for a disco queen.It's a cool look, to be sure, but there could be more to it than that. "The cosmetics industry in the '70s was deeply impacted by the women's liberation movement and the social justic...

Janet Mock Does Not Want To Be Your Trans Poster Child

Before Janet Mock was a high-profile journalist or an advocate for the modern trans movement, before she was a sought-after public speaker or a bestselling author, she was a young trans woman, trying to find her way, discovering her true identity the same way that we all do: one step at a time.In her new book, Surpassing Certainty: What My Twenties Taught Me, Mock breaks down the journey of her early 20s, from her days as a student at the University of Hawaii and nights under the neon lights of...

Twitter Rallies Against Removal Of Transgender Bathroom Protections

Yesterday the Trump administration revoked federal protections that allowed trans teens to use the bathroom of their gender. Many saw these guidelines, which were set in place by the Obama administration, as a step forward in the fight for LGBTQ equality. In the document released last May, the Obama administration stated:“A school’s Title IX obligation to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of sex requires schools to provide transgender students equal access to educational programs and activi...

Twitter wasted no time popping off after Trump revokes trans student protections

The Trump Administration last night rescinded protections for transgender students made in the Obama era, and people are pissed. The Obama protections allowed trans students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that matched their gender identity. So one month into Trump’s presidency, the lives of some of the most vulnerable American citizens — young trans students — are being directly harmed. It didn’t take long for a tidal wave of disgust to wash over social media. Ellen DeGeneres summed it up...

Why It Matters That Sex Workers Were At The Women’s March In D.C.

When Lorelei Lee texted me days after the presidential election to ask if I would join a chartered bus to Washington D.C. to protest the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, I knew there was no better way for me to experience the sure-to-be-historic day. Lorelei and I have done sex work together for many years, tormenting the men who opened their wallets for us in East Bay dungeons and shoving vibrators on each other in San Francisco porno palaces. She’s the kind of adult film legend who mobilizes ...

Noted Media Critic Nicki Minaj Has Some Words About Nude Selfie Double Standards

Nicki Minaj is a very good rapper. She's also stepping up as one of our nation's foremost media critics.In an interview for the November cover of Marie Claire, Minaj made a compelling observation. When Black women post nude selfies, she noted, it is seen as classless. But when white women post similar photographs, they are praised for their freedom of self-expression. @nickiminaj is here to slay.
