What Success for LGBTQIA+ Representation Looks Like Outside June

Earlier this month, SCOTUS outlawed employment discrimination against LGBTQIA+ people-a joyous moment as we honor Pride. However, this fight is far from over. We still need protections in housing, public spaces, education, federal funding and more so we can truly be equal and feel safe living authentically. Until then, society will keep missing out on...

Why Juneteenth 2020 matters

On June 19 , 1865, Union General Gordon Granger stepped onto the balcony of the Ashton Villa in Galveston, Texas, and read aloud from General Order No. 3: “The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free.” This declaration, as the tale goes, forever ended slavery in the United States more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Texans began celebrating June 19 as a holiday as soon as the following...

‘Harry Potter’ Star Daniel Radcliffe Shows Support for Transgender Community, Refutes J.K. Rowling’s Tweets About Gender Identity

“Transgender women are women.” That’s the (correct) personal stance of former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who has written a brief essay responding to a series of tweets written this past weekend by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling which argue the contrary. Radcliffe’s support of the trans community prove once again that he’s a good dude, and in addition to that, his words about grappling with the stance of an auteur behind a popular piece of fiction are applicable in multiple cases acro...

'The Matrix' Co-Founder Slams Ivanka Trump and Elon Musk

Andrew Pulver writes via The Guardian: Film-maker Lilly Wachowski has responded to Elon Musk and Ivanka Trump after the pair bantered on social media using a phrase from the Wachowskis' hit 1999 film, The Matrix.

Chick-fil-A slightly less homophobic now

The popular fried chicken sandwich fast food chain Chick-fil-A has long been targeted by pro-human-rights groups for aligning with hate and homophobia. They say they will now focus giving on “education, homelessness & hunger.” “Years after splitting from actively anti-LGBTQ orgs, Chick-fil-A will stop funding two huge charities that have also opposed same-sex marriage: The Salvation Army & Fellowship of Christian Athletes,” reports Ethan Kraft at CNBC.

Avoiding LGBTQ Workplace Discrimination: Should You Come Out at Work?

Avoiding LGBTQ Workplace Discrimination: Should You Come Out at Work? When I came out as bisexual to my family and friends, I hoped it would be the last time I had that awkward conversation. Then I graduated college and moved from my liberal hometown of Boston, Massachusetts to Cleveland, Ohio, where I started my first real job. I soon found myself googling the question: “Should I come out at work?” In a perfect world, you should never be judged for who you are. Unfortunately, that’s often not...
