Please Keep Talking About Charleston

In the week that my mother passed away, my inbox was flooded with emails of support and friendship. My community texted me, some even called, to tell me they were there for me and that I could count on them for anything I needed. It meant more than I can say to feel the support of people around me who stood by me, even if they had no experience with the pain of my loss....more

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Wants Us to Have a Real Conversation on Campus Sexual Assault

In front of a packed audience at the Washington Post, Dana Bolger tells her story as a victim of sexual assault while a student at Amherst College. Though the act of violence remains shocking to the audience comprised largely of twenty-something females. The two seated next to me are Capitol Hill interns with notebooks in hand as Dana describes the aftermath of her assault. It’s this which causes a ripple of gasps throughout the audience....more

Taking Back The Pride March

Lady Bunny once said: "I'm from New York City, where the Pride parade is often viewed as a marketing opportunity for Red Bull and Sprint, who hire straight bodybuilders to dance on their floats. The organizers, Heritage of Pride, have now copyrighted "NYC Pride" and every configuration of it and are suing local promoters who dare to mention Pride on their invites. Copyrighting Pride, which belongs to all of us?"...more
