Will Glee Get Away with Transphobic Remark? Yeah, Probably.

Last night, Fox Network’s show Glee took on the challenge of a Rocky Horror tribute. As a Gleek and a Rocky fan, I was excited to see the show, particularly to get to see who had the great honor of dressing up as Dr. Frankfurter. I was pleasantly surprised by Finn (played by Cory Monteith) dressed up as Brad and playing the awkward, but surprisingly attractive dork we’ve all come to love. Perhaps more surprising was Mike Chang’s (Harry Shum, Jr.) offer to play the famed Dr. Frankfurter.

Morning Show’s Transphobic Remarks Should Spark Outrage from the LGBT Community

Janet Snyder and Nicholas Picholas aren’t exactly superstars to the bulk of the world. In fact, I’d never heard of them until their morning show which airs in Buffalo, NY on KISS 98.5, took the typically demeaning and irresponsible direction that gets them loads of attention but at a heavy price.

Stupid Things People Say About Gays – Transgender People are Deluded and Don’t Exist

For those that may not be familiar with Bilerico.com, essentially, it is an LGBT blog community which reports on issues relevant to our community. The Bilerico Project has over 80 contributors/editors and alumni including some of the most respected names in the LGBT rights movement like, Donna Rose, Jillian T. Wise, David Badash, Joe Solomenese, Kip Williams, Kate Clinton and many, many more. Their list includes the L, the G, the B and the T and reads as a who’s who in the equality movement. Many authors there are my friends, many have been guests on Closet Talk and I always value their opinions and ideas.
