SUPER GAY MOVIE REVIEW OF THE WEEK: SHE HATE ME

She-Hate-Me-images-239543a1-f71e-401a-af1f-aa47a26f560Ok so don’t let me lie to the universe (me included) and say I will be blogging everyday but I am definitely proud of myself with this two day in a row track record.

I haven’t  done a Super Gay Movie Review in a looooong time. I actually didn’t have any plans on doing one today until I saw that it is the 26th anniversary of Mo Betta Blues.

I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!1

While reminiscing over all my favorite Spike Lee movies a vision of Kerry Washington’s pre-Scandal, fine as frog legs, extra big succulent lips having self flickered in my mind.

Why I Need to Unfollow The National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce on Facebook

Now this is one of those blog posts that I have to think about before publishing. I talk to myself about it, I question myself about it, and hopefully I click publish in the end.

I overthink posts like this because I know what I am going to discuss can be as sensitive for you the reader as myself the writer. And deep down I don’t want the amazing non black queer people I know to think that this is about them… unless it is.

sigh

With that being said I need to unfollow the National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce on Facebook.
