So, I was checking out my Facebook and my friend, straight, changed his status. I was so in shock, I just had to say something. The conversation looked like this:
It still makes me a little upset that people use that word so freely and think it won’t affect anyone around them. Continue reading
Before I start this week’s post I would like to declare that I am indeed a queer identifying female writing this blog since lately there have been so much news about fake lesbian blog and lesbian news site that were actually authored by straight males. Yes, I am talking about you, Tom MacMaster, and you, Bill Graber. Tsk-tsk…
I am not saying that you have to be a lesbian to write about lesbian-related issues but I think you lose a lot of integrity if you start off by lying about who you are even if you have made valid arguments concerning LGBT issues.
And tsk-tsk at the Hong Kong government. That’s right. I am shamed by my home city as the Hong Kong government has recently recruited a famous local psychiatrist, Mr. Kwai-wah Hong, who claims he can “cure” homosexuals as a trainer for the staff of the social welfare department. According to Agence France-Presse, “critics said the move could be the world’s first government-sponsored training session on gay conversion therapy, which includes prayer, cold showers and practising abstinence as a way to avoid same-sex relationships.”
A question for some of our female readers: let’s say that you meet the woman of your dreams, fall in love, and want to raise a family together. Where is the best place to raise a lesbian family? Perhaps where you currently live is a queer family friendly place, but perhaps it is not.
I recently visited high school friends in New England. We took a day trip to Northampton, Massachusetts to see a famous comedian and also to visit a very charming family. Visiting Northampton felt like walking into a parallel universe, one where lesbian parents are the norm. This town of about 30,000 apparently has over 5 times more LGBT residents than a typical American town. Though not very ethnically diverse, this was still quite refreshing to me as someone who grew up in the Bible Belt. I’ll admit, I was enchanted by all that I observed in Northampton.We spent much of the day at the lovely home of Kirsten and Elizabeth, parents of twin toddler boys. Continue reading

Even after a mountain of coke and a dozen of Long Island Iced Teas, you should really watch what you say especially when someone’s taping you. Queer star designer John Galliano was caught on video in Paris saying, “I love Hitler… People like you would be dead today. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be fucking gassed…. You’re ugly.” When asked where he was from, he said, “Your asshole.” The chief designer at Christian Dior has been terminated from his post.
Sighs. Really, you’re never a big enough star to be a bigot. Or act like a bigot.
I WoW. Like 12 million other people from around world, I am addicted to the hugely popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft. Some clever people also came up with the name “gaymers”, queers who play video games on a regular basis.
If you don’t know what World of Warcraft is, what is wrong with you? Continue reading
