Ashley Benson's New Tattoo Is a Subtle Nod to Her Hometown

Ashley Benson has a lot of love for her home state. The Pretty Little Liars alum was recently spotted on social media showing off an all-new tattoo that she got with a close friend of hers. Benson and her friend, who goes by @girleatsworldddd on Instagram, are both from Anaheim and Los Angeles, respectively, so it only made sense that the two of them get matching tattoos saying "California" written in cursive. Both of the tats were drawn in their mid-back areas by famed New York City-based tatto...

Katie Hill’s New Memoir Is Going To Shake Up The Political Patriarchy

Tarotscopes that slay: New moon in Pisces

Pisces Season is a mystery.  The last sign of the Zodiac doesn’t promise answers to the most profound of life’s questions– it only promises to take us deeper into the questions themselves.  Depending on your relationship with the unknown, Pisces Season can either be a mystical, creative time full of surprise or a miserable slog through your own hidden lose ends.  I’ve had both, sometimes concurrently. I think of Pisces as the sign of the dreamtime, the void and the invisible world. Pisces is th...

Et tu, Wendy? 9 allies who betrayed their LGBTQ followers

Self-proclaimed LGBTQ ally Wendy Williams is in the middle of a PR nightmare. It all started last week when she launched into what can only be described as an antigay tirade on her show.

‘And Then We Danced’ Director Levan Akin on when a movie gets you death threats

Director Levan Akin on set with Levan Gelbakhiani “Can we sit outside? I need to smoke.” Levan Akin makes the request when we greet him outside a bookstore in Park City, Utah. The two of us find a cafe table nearby overlooking the street, where we watch a light powdering of snow begin to fall as the mid-week lull of the Sundance Film Festival begins. Normally we might object to Akin smoking, but in his case, it somehow makes sense. His Sundance entry, And Then We Danced, has incited protests ...

You might not think you harbor any internalized homophobia, but you do, and here’s why

There are few words that really make me cringe, as I’ve pretty much heard it all, but there’s one that still makes my skin crawl, and that’s the F word. No, no, not the four-letter word we hear every day. I’m talking about the six-letter expression that has been used to denigrate gay people for decades (and the three-letter shortened version, also used to describe a cigarette across the pond).
