Don’t roll your eyes. I am really need to know about this. Because I am feeling some kind of way…1.
I am pretty sure y’all know what church queens are (or can guess). It is a gay (often closeted) man in the church who sighs heavily and sucks their teeth when they see a more flamboyant gay man walk down the aisle at altar call. If you are trying to spot him, he can usually be seen sporting a pastel polkadot bow tie with matching pocket square (no shade).2
Okay so by virtue of my own definition, I can’t be a church queen. But I still feel some kind of way… Let me tell you why. Continue reading →
As a industry 9 to 5iver, I can honestly say it is hard for me to be excited about fashion nowadays. In a world built on superficial beauty, it is easy to get caught up in the polish without any purpose. So when I was introduced to the crew at Spring Up Bow Ties, I was psyched. Any group whose vision is violence-free campus communities in which students have equal access to higher education, as well as resources that reflect and respect their experiences, I support.
First, let me just say that my Starrbooty movie experience has been an adventure in the making. Back when this girl was a barely legal, college radio DJ on the graveyard shift at WRAS Atlanta 88.5fm (shameless plug), a caller requested a song from RuPaul’s Starrbooty. I can’t recall all of the details but I ended up finding the album and playing the title track. It was the most goddess-awful things I’d ever heard…and yet, I was in love.
I searched for her over the years and got close to finding her a few times but that Starrbooty kept eluding me. Finally, I heard that there was a new Starrbooty movie out and she was better than ever. I am not disappointed. I am not only satisfied, I am GAGGING. Continue reading →
So I have been getting to know two OkCupid women lately 1. They both spoke to me in different ways2 and both know about this blog so I will keep my descriptions realllll cute.
Prospect 1: Masculine identified. Too cool for school. Successful in a high level LGBT related career. I am sure is hot shit in her circle. Great initial chemistry… now not so sure. She may or may not be that into me, and ambiguity makes me sleepy.
Prospect 2: Feminine identified. My mom would love her… if she were a man. Genuinely good person. Community based profession. Family oriented. No sparks at first (thought she would be a great friend)… now not so sure. I might just be that into her.
First of all, I loved this movie. Hands down it was one of my favorite gay teen centered movies ever. It was cute without being cutesy and dramatic but not overwrought. If my school had a secret gay club, maybe I would’ve joined. But we didn’t, at least not that I know of…but if we had, I wish it could’ve been like this. Continue reading →
I have had my fill of lesbian drama. Ok. Let me restate that please. I am sick and tired of WATCHING lesbian drama on my digital devices. With that being said, I am all for lesbian comedy. It’s about time
someone came along with a sense of humor. I was beginning to lose faith in my sisters. We can’t all be so serious all the time can we? I am also sick of seeing black women languishing behind bars…which is
why, although it may be funny and full of lesbians, I haven’t seen Orange is The New Black. Right now, Entangled With You is giving me EVERYTHING. Continue reading →
As a Florida born and bred lezzie, I have been asked by quite a few folks, “What is really going on with the gay marriage ban in Florida?” Normally, I would tell them to google it. This time I was actually at a cocktail event with some of the Miami LGBT elite on the 17th (I snuck in) and got the tea from the folks’ holding the bag. Continue reading →
