But now a new romance is in the air, along with high fashion, elegant manners, scandal, deception, and the wonderful hope of a true and lasting love. Shy Georgiana Darcy has been content to remain unmarried, living with her brother and his new bride. But Elizabeth and Darcy's fairy-tale love reminds Georgiana daily that she has found no true love of her own. And perhaps never will, for she is convinced the one man she secretly cares for will never love her in return. Georgiana's domineering aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, has determined that Georgiana shall marry, and has a list of eligible bachelors in mind. But which of the suitors are sincere, and which are merely interested in Georgiana's fortune? Georgiana must learn to trust her heart—and rely on her courage—for she also faces the return of the man who could ruin her reputation and spoil a happy ending, just when it finally lies within her grasp. Georgiana Darcy's Diary is Book 1 of the Pride and Prejudice Chronicles and is appropriate for all ages.

Ugandans Celebrate Gay Pride, But Stigma Tempers Joy

ENTEBBE, Uganda (Reuters) – Several dozen Ugandans marked Gay Pride on Saturday, cheering that such a parade could go ahead in a country that only last year tried to impose long jail terms for gay sex.

At a secluded beach in Entebbe, on Lake Victoria just outside the capital Kampala, a group of about 70 people holding banners including “I have a relationship with Jesus and I’m gay”, marched a short distance as music blared out.

Gays and lesbians in Ugandans often live secretive lives, fearful that coming out will attract stigma and hostility from family and friends, or the loss of a job or an apartment.

 ”We are here to send a message to the wider population that we do exist and we want rights like any other Ugandan,” said Moses Kimbugwe, one of the marchers. “We think this is a step moving forward.”

Although some of the revellers described the march – the culmination of a week of gay rights events in Uganda – as a triumph, they said their joy was tempered by the fact that society was still largely hostile to them and that attitudes were unlikely to change quickly.

A constitutional court later overturned the law because of legal technicalities. Despite threats by some lawmakers that the bill would be re-introduced in parliament, that has not happened and analysts say it would be unlikely to succeed in the face of strong pressure from Western donors.

Another marcher, who identified herself only by her first name, Mariam, because she was unwilling to be identified publicly as gay, said it was “exciting” to march alongside other gay people, but added she lived in fear of being found out.

“I would never ever reveal my gay lifestyle to my parents or friends. They would denounce me,” she said.

Police Cars Go Rainbow For Pride Celebration, Cops Serve And Protect In Style

These cops are fabulous!

For Brighton Pride last weekend, the Sussex police department got in the spirit by giving their service vehicles a full rainbow makeover.

 

About 160,000 people took to the streets of the southeast England city on Saturday for their 25th Pride parade, BBC reported, described by Brighton Pride director Paul Kemp as “a celebration [that] brings in a lot of people from all over the world.” This year’s event was especially exciting because of its 25th anniversary and a new parade route that went along the city’s seafront. 

During the colorful parade, the Sussex police department encouraged people to take pictures with the decorated vehicles. 

Though they certainly provided terrific photo ops, the Sussex police — above all –provided safety and support. 

“This was an excellent opportunity to show our continued steadfast support for LGBT communities,” the department wrote on their Facebook page. “Pride is one of the biggest events that takes place in Brighton and Hove each year and Sussex Police play a large role in policing the event and ensuring that those attending are kept safe.”

 

 

Leading up to Saturday’s festivities, the Sussex police issued safety tips for the celebration, and during the parade, set up a booth staffed by officers giving out goodies. 

 

This police squad is something to be proud of!

Celebrate Love and Equality at Pride Music Festival in San Diego

2015-07-02-1435876581-6502834-Pride.jpg

The art of change is one that occurs slowly, its early brushstrokes seemingly unclear except to the eyes of its believers. As the painting becomes more complete, a vision begins to materialize, a vision that many saw all along. When true change finally occurs, a masterpiece is unveiled. The United States of America has seen many changes over the past decade, but one of the most colorfully celebrated is the 2015 Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage a constitutional right (which it always has been) nationwide.

Pride celebrations began long before this ruling and will continue on long after. However, the timing is impeccable as the pride celebrations are just a little more special this time around. San Diego Pride is proud to present Pride Music Festival, the San Diego region’s biggest and most grandiose music festival celebrating diversity and equality. This epic event will unite over 40,000 people over two days from across the nation to celebrate, rejoice, dance, and of course, share love.

In addition to being a massive city-wide party, this event also supports dozens of charitable organizations and has raised and donated over $ 2 million over the years. The surrounding neighborhoods as well as the city and county of San Diego have long supported Pride Music Festival because of its respectful and excellent reputation for safety. Among many other things, Pride Music Festival will feature an open-air art gallery, food trucks, craft beers, spirits and more than 200 exhibitor and vendor booths. There is also a VIP section available which offers a VIP entrance, restrooms, catered food, and four hosted drinks each day.

Providing the pulse of Pride Music Festival will be five electronic and live music stages sprinkled amid the lush greenery of San Diego’s Balboa Park during the weekend of July 18th-19th. The recently unveiled lineup includes current dance, pop, hip-hop, Latin and many other genres of music such as Emma Hewitt, Late Night Alumni, Mary Lambert, Ruby Rose, Pierce Fulton and Taryn Manning, just to name a few. Even Carmen Electra will be showing her support by hosting the mainstage on day 1, keeping attendees rallied.

The 2015 theme is “Liberty and Justice For All,” a true call-to-action for equality not just in the U.S., but globally. “It’s a memorable experience to unite with thousands of people, taking pride in who you are and celebrating each other,” said executive director Stephen Whitburn. “Pride Music Festival is for everyone.”

Music festivals are currently one of the strongest uniting forces in popular culture. Combining the unity of a music festival and the power of the Pride movement creates a unique and unforgettable experience that will keep this event alive for years to come. Pride Music Festival 2015 will not only be an epic party, but a beautiful moment in history shared even by those who cannot attend. It will represent a time when the voices of millions were finally heard, where full acceptance and equality are not just possible but necessary, and when an entire nation finally shares this same freedom. Under the warm San Diego sun, humans will dance and celebrate together united beneath the banner of love.

Let’s Not Lose Our Pride Momentum

Happy Pride, everybody!

The LGTBQ people and all of America scored a huge fucking win this past week with the SCOTUS ruling on federally recognized marriage equality across all fifty states! I’m psyched as we all should be! People who have been marginalized in this country for millennia are being recognized as human beings with the right to be as happy and successful as anyone else. It’s sad that not everyone is in a celebratory mood.

I just had to address a post shared by a Facebook friend in which the quoted author who is upset that while we all revel in one victory, we forget other battles that continue to be waged in the greater war on systematic injustice.  Namely, the burning of six different African-American churches this June. He charged that we are “distracted by this gay marriage bullshit.” I countered: “This is so not cool. Why must he lead with a bigoted, hateful response to make a point? No kind of hate is bullshit. It’s possible to revel in one victory without discounting another. Many of us are quite aware of what’s happening to blacks right now and are vocalizing it while celebrating an LGBTQ victory. And for the record, that victory behooves many black people who just happen to be LGTBQ.”

Even though I contested the divisiveness of his point, I am a just as much an angry, black man as he is. We should all be fucking angry that six black churches have been burned down due to arson this month alone. Whatever your beliefs about religion, the sanctity of your fellow man’s place of worship is something to be respected. Adding insult to injury, many of these churches had their inceptions during a time when blacks were legally ostracized from worshipping in the same buildings as whites, so not only is the renewed phenomenon a slap in the face due to its sheer brutality, but it’s also a kick in the teeth as it’s a reminder that separate and unequal is still very much in effect. Unequal to the point of feeling a need to obliterate.

While I do think the media is fully guilty of diversionary tactics quite often (and we akin to lemmings guilty of falling for them), I don’t feel that’s the case in all the media attention going to the SCOTUS marriage equality decision. We all have valid reason to celebrate the codification of something that should have been a universally given right ages ago.

That being said, we are all quite familiar with human nature. Once a relative obstacle is surmounted, we all kind of just forget that we had allies along the way and that it’s our duty to continue to pay it forward exactly as they did with their beneficence. So I’m pleading with you to all to please not rest on your laurels.  Last week’s victory is great, but I beg of you to never forget that many people… many of whom are the brethren of the LGTBQ community, are still losing. We too are gays, lesbians, trans men, trans women, bisexual men, bisexual women and queers. And we continue to have our very lives as well as our livelihoods threatened every single day based solely (like you) on how we were born.  Only our plight is often more conspicuous as there is no closet for us to even try to hide in.  We can never hide our skin, our hair textures, our facial features and the shapes of our bodies.  And like you, we should never want to hide any facet of ourselves.

So I’m imploring not just all of America, but more expressly all of my white LGBQ brothers and sisters (Not sure that I want to include the Ts as their fight is still waging on many levels; even within the greater LGTBQ community), please start practicing some more… Hell, some empathy PERIOD.  The same way, there are enemies of a progressive America who are already trying to undermine this past week’s win, there are those (many being one and the same) plotting to continually undermine others based on other characteristics.  Even if you do revel in white/class privilege and really don’t give a fuck about violence and institutional racism directed at black, brown, red and yellow peoples, then just keep in mind that acquired freedoms are always a slippery slope when all are not privy to fair and equitable treatment.

Two days after the Supreme Court’s historic ruling on same-sex marriage, New York City’s annual pride parade was the biggest and brightest party of the year. So it should come as no surprise that a number of famous faces wanted in on the celebration.

LGBTQ patron saints Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi were front and center, decked out in matching rainbow sashes, kissing supporters on their cheeks, and raising their Panama Jack hats.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch star Darren Criss opted for a tee instead of his character’s famous fishnets when he climbed on top of Hetrick-Martin’s float, flying his Technicolor flag high.

The award for most committed ensemble goes to Orange Is the New Black. The women of Litchfield went above and beyond to show their enthusiasm. Yael Stone and Jackie Cruz danced—in a style we assume Mr. Healy would not approve of—on top of the OITNB float.

Lea DeLaria’s to-the-point tee would make Big Boo proud.

And just a few avenues over from the city’s kaleidoscopic street celebration at the Dream Downtown, Caitlyn Jenner joined in on the fun and made her first big public appearance. During the Jared Needle and Voss Productions party, Jenner and six friends stopped by the hotel to see transgender icon Candis Cayne’s performance, but it was Jenner who stole the show. The crowd offered their unbridled support for her, chanting, “We love you, Caitlyn!”

CNN Mistakes Sex Toy Flag For ISIS Flag At London Gay Pride

They got one thing right — that’s definitely not Arabic.

CNN devoted a segment to a purported ISIS flag that was spotted by correspondent Lucy Pawle in London during the city’s gay pride celebrations Saturday.

“If you look at the flag closely, it’s clearly not Arabic,” Pawle said. “In fact, it looks like it could be gobbledegook. But it’s very distinctively the ISIS flag.”

That “gobbledegook” appears to be a an assortment of butt plugs, dildos and other sex toys arranged to look like the ISIS flag. Pawle went on to cast suspicion on a man dressed in black at the festivities, who she said was displaying the flag.

“I seem to be the only person who has spotted this, and nobody seems to be raising any questions or pointing it out,” she said.

ISIS has reportedly murdered gay men by dropping them off buildings.

CNN removed video of the segment from its website Saturday afternoon.

News in Brief: Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Most Buck-Wild Pride Parade Nation’s Ever Seen

WASHINGTON—Following decades of debate over the constitutional right to same-sex marriage, the U.S. Supreme Court today handed down a 5-4 ruling in favor of the most buck-wild, balls-to-the-wall gay pride parade this country has ever seen. “After reviewing the constitutional underpinnings of this case, the court finds that it is discriminatory for states to deny the right to the most out-of-control, bonkers gay pride parade that anyone could possibly imagine,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion, which outlined at length the elaborate floats, billowing rainbow flags, and phalanxes of outlandishly dressed participants, barely scratching the surface of how completely bananas things are about to get. “This decision confirms what should be obvious: The government cannot prevent a nonstop bacchanal surging through the streets of every American city. We’re talking half-naked lesbians covered in body paint, rollerblading homosexuals in brightly colored Native American headdresses and …

Alcohol Companies at L.A. Pride Leave a Bitter Taste

Now that American support for same-sex marriage has risen to numbers as high as 63 percent, gay has become cool. Hundreds of thousands of people turned out to this year’s Los Angeles Pride Festival, the 45th annual celebration of the world’s first ever Pride Parade, which took place in the City of Angels in 1970.

With growing cultural acceptance for sexual and gender minorities, companies have caught on, strategically launching marketing campaigns directly geared towards the LGBTQ community. The Pride displays at Target stores nationwide this month are just one of many examples. This year’s Pride festival would not have been successful without its share of corporate sponsors — Bud Light, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Delta Airlines, Wells Fargo, Toyota, Red Bull, and Transparent.

While many will applaud these companies’ support as a metric of how far society has come, I’m taken aback. Two of these seven primary corporate sponsors are alcohol companies. Instead of lauding Bud Light and Tito’s for supporting the LGBTQ community, I am highly skeptical of their intent.

It’s no secret that alcoholism is a huge problem among LGBTQ Americans. Alcohol abuse is 2.5-5 times more prevalent among LGBTQ Americans than their heterosexual and cisgender counterparts. Public health experts have pinpointed prejudice and discrimination as the roots of this drastic health disparity.

The tobacco industry has similarly capitalized on the higher rates of substance abuse in the LGBTQ community. In no time, alcohol companies have followed in their footsteps. In giving to Pride festivals and using social media to back LGBTQ causes with their brands, alcohol companies are exploiting and endangering the lives and wellbeing of sexual and gender minorities.

The organizers of the LA Pride Festival also deserve a fair amount of scrutiny for opting to accept donations from alcohol companies. While I am sure that the money helped make this year’s Pride as successful as it was, the funds will inevitably make their way back into the hands of Bud Light and Tito’s — companies that will no doubt continue to reap the benefits of my community’s health problems.

The difficult toll alcoholism takes on LGBTQ individuals was visible to the naked eye at Pride. There was no shortage of passed-out drunk people, aggressive pushing and shoving at the concerts, and I even witnessed a brawl break out as my friends waited in line for a Bud Light.

However, beyond these short-term consequences, many members of my community suffer more difficult effects of the substance. Penalties for DUIs and steep costs for rehabilitation programs are among the long-term ramifications of alcoholism. Not to mention, alcohol consumption increases one’s aptitude for high-risk sexual behaviors and injection drug use — two major modes of HIV transmission.

There is little question that the money used to fund Pride this year will amplify a major problem in the LGBTQ community. Sadly, the presence of alcohol companies marks Pride’s loss of its original and historic mission — defiance.

When Los Angeles inaugurated the Pride festival, Pride was a commemoration of the Stonewall Riots — a radical act of defiance against a police raid of the Stonewall Inn in New York City. We are fortunate that many sexual and gender minorities now have the privilege of safety and the protection of the police. However, these same issues of police brutality are affecting our peers of color nationwide. This could have been a point of emphasis for Pride, but it seemed that everyone was really just too drunk to even care.

Pride this year occurred on the heels of what’s bound to be a historic decision by the Supreme Court regarding marriage equality. While many of my peers will be toasting their champagne to celebrate their same-sex marriages, I’ll be thinking about some more serious issues.

Where is the outrage over the death of Mercedes Williamson, the ninth American trans woman who was murdered in 2015? More importantly, where are the liquor companies when our peers are getting murdered? They offer conditional solidarity for same-sex marriage, but nothing but booze to drown our sorrow in the face of adversity. There is much to celebrate, but there is also much to lament.

Perhaps when police brutality ends, when trans murders stop, and when alcoholism is no longer a problem plaguing our community, it’ll be time to have a party. For now, I won’t be supporting alcohol companies’ unethical attempt to take advantage of me or my community. Cheers.

Happy Gay Pride Week! All the Victories We’re Celebrating This Year

pride week

When our old friend William Faulkner opined, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past,” he certainly wasn’t taking about the state of the gay rights movement in 2015. The hideous past is increasingly dead and buried, Bill, and we are dancing on its homophobic grave!

What a year it has been! As the Pride parade barrels down Fifth Avenue on Sunday, June 28, exactly 46 years to the day after the Stonewall uprising (lavender cupcakes at my house!), let’s take a minute to enjoy—to frankly wallow in—the victories of the past year. Not just the stupendous advances in gay marriage—legal in 37 states and the District of Columbia! Quietly legal in Mexico! Legal in the entire country of Ireland, a wondrous and somewhat stunning turn of events—but a host of other LGBTQ triumphs as well.

So sure, Caitlyn is on the cover of Vanity Fair, which we love—but also, Transparent has rocked the TV world, Laverne Cox continues her rise to super-stardom, openly gay Sam Smith won four top Grammys, Hozier had a huge hit with ‘Take Me to Church” (a powerful demand for equal rights) and the marvelous musical lesbian-bildungsroman Fun Home swept the Tonys. Later this year, Julianne Moore and Ellen Page will play lovers in Freeheld; Eddie Redmayne will trade Stephen Hawking for the part of a transgender woman in The Danish Girl.

On the legal front, last July President Obama signed an executive order banning workplace discrimination against millions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees of federal contractors. And let’s not forget the repudiation of the “pizza/florist/wedding cake” laws that would provide a loophole for discrimination. (I mean, even Walmart saw the light on this one.)

As Pride Sunday approaches, we await with near hysterical anticipation the Supreme Court’s imminent decision on whether all states will be required to respect each other’s laws when it comes to marriage, or maybe—we can dream—the court will rule that gay marriage should be legal in every state. End of discussion!

Send a million rainbow-hued good thoughts in the court’s direction! Say a prayer if that is a power you believe in, or just wish fervently upon a star, that those nine justices, and the whole of America, will have the courage to stand on the right side of history.

Are Pride Parades Appropriate For Kids?

In response to the video of a little boy “twerking” at Pride celebrations in Brazil; the ire it is causing and how it is being exploited by anti-gay groups, let me start by saying I love and have attended Pride and I understand its significance as (1) a defiant march to show the world that LGBT people are actual human beings from all walks of life and are unafraid and unashamed of who we are (2) a walk of commemoration of our heroes and triumph over centuries of hate, injustice (3) a platform to highlight existing issues that still need to be addressed to ensure we are in fact free and equal citizens of our respective countries to which we pledge allegiance, contribute our taxes, contribute our intellectual, creative, charitable efforts and sometimes even our very lives in its defense.

At Brighton Pride in Preston Park

I also understand why the other side of Pride, the celebratory party apsect and the chance it affords to be free in one’s own sexual skin has basically overtaken the parade’s other raisons d’êtres. Any opportunity to unload burdens of repression and revel in one’s personal freedom is often a far more powerful and immediately empowering experience than making a serious statement. I can grasp the dichotomy of the festival on a particularly visceral level because I was raised in Trinidad and Tobago where Carnival is a similar mix of serious themes of old tradition and the wild hedonistic celebration of freedom.

The pre-Lenten festival brought over by French planters evolved after Emancipation when the freed slaves, much to the shock of the plantation owners, did not seek bloody retribution but instead took to the streets, beating their African drums, dancing and chanting songs of liberation. Today Carnival retains this tradition of handing the streets over to the people who become living art. Carnival is an explosion of color, creativity, music and dance. It is an exorcism of the demons of oppression and remembrance of traditional culture. For many this is a time to make serious artistic, intellectual statements and political commentary. Masquerade creators like Brian Mc Farlene create poignant traditional street theatre. Rapso bands like 3 Canal make music chanting down oppression and inspiring love and unity. Calypsonians write scathing satirical commentary on the local politicians and there is not a damn thing anyone can do to muzzle it. I expect next year’s Carnival to have some side-splitting satire on Jack Warner and the FIFA fraud (by the way great job John Oliver, lots of Trinis enjoyed and agreed with every point you made) in both song and masquerade portrayals.

2015-06-18-1434589881-6797366-images1.jpg
An “Ole Mas” player poking fun at the Prime Minister’s poor performance

However, like Pride, Carnival has also evolved to include a massive party of unbridled revelry. From J’ouvert (pronounced joovay and means “day opening” in French Patois) Monday Morning non-stop to Mardis Gras, Trinidad’s streets are flooded with hundreds of thousands of people, all ages, races, nationalities, sexual orientations, shapes and sizes. Every kind of alcohol from Johnny Walker Blue to Grey Goose to homemade over proof bush rum flows like water and ganga smoke wafts through the air as bodies gyrate in sensual abandon to pounding soca music from massive speaker trucks. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, nurses, businessmen, Parliamentarians, Hollywood celebrities dance like there is no tomorrow, rubbing shoulders with farmers, janitors, street hustlers, artisans and the unemployed. As one of our soca artists says, “If you have no taxi fare or if you is a millionaire we just don’t care.” Richard Branson, Idris Elba, Will Smith, Halle Berry, Mick Jagger, Carmen Electra to name a few come just to get lost in the anonymous melee of this adult street part and by adult I mean Rated R.

THIS PART OF CARNIVAL IS NOT FOR KIDS!

Now, just as I love Pride, I am also self-professed “Carnivalian” (a Trini who loves a fete, playing J’ouvert and mas/masquerade). I see it as a wonderful release of all inhibitions, well not all, but a reasonable amount to feel completely reinvigorated. I love to dance to soca and I love to wine!

2015-06-18-1434590605-9860972-1923645_10778961462_3386_n.jpg
2015-06-18-1434590657-1343482-1929664_10780066462_8742_n.jpg

I’m a tried and true “Carnivalian” so don’t expect me to judge any adult gay or straight for dancing with wild abandon in the street in a skimpy costume.

“Wining”, a pelvic thrusting, rotating movement is the traditional way Trinis dance and both women and men do it (it is not seen as “gay” for Trini men to gyrate their hips) alone or together as the instinctive response to the rhythm of soca. The hip gyration is an isolated movement from African, Indian, Amerindian dance and Trini culture is a hybrid of those cultures. Go to an Indian wedding in Trinidad and everyone including old aunties will be wining. Go to an Afro-Creole wedding and it will be the same thing. I went to my partner’s younger sister’s wedding (they are a white Trini family of Portuguese/English decent) and guess what, once that soca music hits, everyone’s waistline gets loose. A Trini child learning to dance the way their people dance will be learning to do this, just as a Lebanese child will be learning their traditional belly dance, just as a Hawaiian or Tahitian child will be learning their traditional dance and the Brazlian child the samba. All of these involve learning pelvic gyration.

Some cultures do not necessarily see this movement as pornographic or an automatic invitation by the dancer to come have sex with them. It is just seen as one’s exuberant spirit being expressed and a thing of beauty in its own right. I know that to many of you this is confusing as hell because everything associated with mid-section (hips, pelvis, buttocks) body movement is seen as too scandalous to be done in public, by anyone and a child doing it is even more of a culture shock.


Little girl doing traditional Tahitian dance.

However, because of my cultural background, I was not scandalized by the awkward “pressao” (what some call twerking) into a split, attempts of this enthusiastic Brazlian boy in the video that is sparking all this uproar. I was scandalized by something else entirely, where he was doing it.

Context is everything! For even in my bacchanal frenzied Trinidad where heterosexuals don’t stop partying just because they become “respectable” members of society, parents or grandparents and it is not uncommon for a young adult to run into their company’s CEO or older relatives breaking loose at the very same party or Carnival band, it is still frowned upon to have little children at adult events. We give children their own separate Carnival parade one week before the main street party, so they can have their G-rated family fun in their cute, colorful costumes and face paint accompanied by their parents and teachers.

KID FRIENDLY CARNIVAL

There is a time and place for kids to have fun and a time and place for adults to do the same. Adult masqueraders who see children on the road on during their days for grown up revelry will give disdainful looks to the irresponsible parents who could not be bothered to find a babysitter and do not have their priorities in order and there will be “shame” pics posted of it on social media. None of my Trini friends were allowed to play adult mas until they were over 16. Even when they came of age, they had to play with their parents’ mas band so their folks could keep a watchful eye on them (See the last part 8:44 of this video )

So I ask do LGBT parents feel a similar responsibility? Do Pride Organizers have any responsibility at all to the sizable number of the LGBT community (straight allies included) with kids? What about LGBT kids and young teens, are there age appropriate ways and spaces for them and their supportive parents to celebrate Pride? Can we ignore the fact that despite the festival’s origins in serious human rights roots and as a social activist platform, is has indeed transformed into a sexually charged, adult street party in most parts of the world? Is it possible to have two different Pride parades on two different days, one for families/ activist groups and the other just for an adult street revel? If not perhaps there can be separate itineraries for daytime and evening and/or two different parade routes? Most of all, when irresponsible parents bring their kids into the very adult spaces of Pride shouldn’t there be proactive discouragement of this within our own community? Can we afford the repercussions we know all too well, if we do not? Can we discuss these things without it degenerating into an attack?

Regardless of other people’s personal tastes and beliefs about nudity and open sensuality, I am very grateful not to live in a repressed, theocratic regime and instead be in a society where folks can enjoy so much personal freedom of expression in public. Every Pride, every Carnival for me is living proof there is indeed freedom of expression. However all this freedom comes with responsibility. Kids come with responsibilities and some spaces are simply not age-appropriate for them.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged…” that Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen’s most widely read and widely loved novel. It is the story of Elizabeth, the sharp-witted and level-headed second daughter of the Bennet family, and her slowly blossoming relationship with the honorable but haughty Mr. Darcy. Taking place among the rural aristocracy of England in the early nineteenth century, Austen creates characters that are so recognizably human and themes that are so universal, that the novel has never lost its popularity, inspiring nearly two centuries of adaptations, reinterpretations, and imitators. Austen’s original text, available here with illustrations from the 1895 edition, remains one of the most romantic, delightful, and indelible stories in the English language.

Gay Pride March Attacked In Kiev

KIEV, June 6 (Reuters) – Several dozen unknown assailants attacked a gay pride march in Kiev on Saturday, throwing flares and wounding two policemen, a Reuters witness reported.

On Friday the organizers for ‘KyivPride2015’ said the march along the Dnipro river would go ahead despite warnings from city mayor Vitaly Klitschko, who advised the event be canceled because of a threat of violence from far-right groups.

Despite the presence of several hundred police in riot gear, the march of around 150 LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans-gender) supporters carrying rainbow banners and placards came under attack and 25-30 “hooligans” were arrested, parliament member Serhiy Leshchenko said on Twitter.

Leshchenko said police had prevented any direct clashes between participants in the march and the attackers.

Ukrainian authorities have increased their support for LGBT rights since a new pro-European government came to power after last year’s ‘Maidan’ street protests; but critics say homophobic attitudes remain widespread.

Adidas Introduces Three LGBT-Friendly Designs On Its Iconic Footwear In Honor Of Pride Month

Sportswear giant Adidas is following in the footsteps of Nike and Levi’s in putting a rainbow-hued twist on some of its most iconic designs in time for LGBT Pride Month.

Three Adidas staples — the Stan Smith, the Adilette Slide and the Superstar — are getting the limited edition makeover as part of the “Pride Pack.” Each of the designs draws inspiration from the LGBT rainbow flag, “a symbol of equality and inclusiveness that signifies the diversity of the LGBT community,” according to press materials.

Meanwhile, Adidas is also sponsoring Portland Monthly’s “Flare,” a Pride Month event slated for June. 11.

Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day: Stories of Pride and Family

LGBTQ Pride Month is almost upon us. I like to think of this time of year, however, as Parenting Season, the span between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. It can be a challenging time for LGBTQ parents and our kids, since we don’t fit into those two categories in the traditional way — but it can also be a great time to celebrate and raise awareness about our families.

I’m proud to see the growing presence of LGBTQ families in the media, including drama and comedy as well as the news. ABC’s Modern Family, which includes gay dads in its ensemble cast, is one of the most awarded comedy series of all time. Sister network ABC Family’s The Fosters, about two moms and their mix of biological, adopted and foster kids, has won critical acclaim, including Television Academy Honors “for using the power of television to bring awareness to important social issues.” Even better, the show has garnered an avid audience of youth who follow the storylines of the teen characters.

Both The Fosters and Modern Family have aired the weddings of the shows’ same-sex parents. Season-ending weddings are a television trope. Season-ending weddings of same-sex parents means we’ve arrived, at least in some pop-culture sense. I happen to believe that pop culture is a leading indicator for legal and political change, though, so that’s not a frivolous statement.

Although our pop culture inclusion is new, it was built on a long history of LGBTQ parents and our children. It’s a history that is still being set down, in films like Debra Chasnoff’s Choosing Children, about the first generation of lesbians to become parents after coming out, and books like Daniel Winunwe Rivers’ Radical Relations, which charts the history of gay and lesbian parents since World War II. I’m reminded of the old saying (sometimes attributed to Winston Churchill) that “history is written by the victors.” We haven’t won quite yet, but things are looking hopeful. Our history will root us as we grow into the future.

Despite our progress, neither pop culture nor marriage alone will give us full equality, even if the U.S. Supreme Court rules favorably in the coming weeks. Not all states — even ones that allow same-sex couples to marry — protect people from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Not all states allow all LGBTQ people to be legal parents to our children, or do so only after a long, costly process. Not all schools include books, other curricular materials, or administrative forms that are inclusive of LGBTQ people and our families. Not every parent knows how to talk about LGBTQ people with their kids.

While legal progress and media representation can help, much change comes simply from telling our stories. Stories both strengthen our community and help others to better understand us. That’s why I’m very excited about Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day on June 1, the annual event that I’ve been hosting at my blog for the past ten years.

Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day: Stories of Pride and Family

LGBTQ Pride Month is almost upon us. I like to think of this time of year, however, as Parenting Season, the span between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. It can be a challenging time for LGBTQ parents and our kids, since we don’t fit into those two categories in the traditional way — but it can also be a great time to celebrate and raise awareness about our families.

I’m proud to see the growing presence of LGBTQ families in the media, including drama and comedy as well as the news. ABC’s Modern Family, which includes gay dads in its ensemble cast, is one of the most awarded comedy series of all time. Sister network ABC Family’s The Fosters, about two moms and their mix of biological, adopted and foster kids, has won critical acclaim, including Television Academy Honors “for using the power of television to bring awareness to important social issues.” Even better, the show has garnered an avid audience of youth who follow the storylines of the teen characters.

Both The Fosters and Modern Family have aired the weddings of the shows’ same-sex parents. Season-ending weddings are a television trope. Season-ending weddings of same-sex parents means we’ve arrived, at least in some pop-culture sense. I happen to believe that pop culture is a leading indicator for legal and political change, though, so that’s not a frivolous statement.

Although our pop culture inclusion is new, it was built on a long history of LGBTQ parents and our children. It’s a history that is still being set down, in films like Debra Chasnoff’s Choosing Children, about the first generation of lesbians to become parents after coming out, and books like Daniel Winunwe Rivers’ Radical Relations, which charts the history of gay and lesbian parents since World War II. I’m reminded of the old saying (sometimes attributed to Winston Churchill) that “history is written by the victors.” We haven’t won quite yet, but things are looking hopeful. Our history will root us as we grow into the future.

Despite our progress, neither pop culture nor marriage alone will give us full equality, even if the U.S. Supreme Court rules favorably in the coming weeks. Not all states — even ones that allow same-sex couples to marry — protect people from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Not all states allow all LGBTQ people to be legal parents to our children, or do so only after a long, costly process. Not all schools include books, other curricular materials, or administrative forms that are inclusive of LGBTQ people and our families. Not every parent knows how to talk about LGBTQ people with their kids.

While legal progress and media representation can help, much change comes simply from telling our stories. Stories both strengthen our community and help others to better understand us. That’s why I’m very excited about Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day on June 1, the annual event that I’ve been hosting at my blog for the past ten years. Participants have included LGBTQ parents, prospective parents, the childfree, our children, and allies, sharing their stories to remind us of how we’re all alike — and how we’re all different.

One Ally’s Story in Celebration of Pride Month

Holden Caulfield was my best friend the summer that I stopped eating. It was 1982, I was 12, and I was at overnight camp. I wanted nothing to do with the girls in my bunk. They were all about boobs, make up and boy talk. It felt so foreign to me. I just wasn’t interested, and they wanted nothing to do with me either. I sat on my bunk and read J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye over and over again. Along with reading, starving myself was something I could do to gain control of a lonely summer. It nearly killed me. I was hospitalized for three months with anorexia, a secret shadow that has followed me around for the past 30 years. It was also a sort of self-imposed puberty blocker, I think. No part of me wanted to become the young women I saw around me. (I haven’t read anything about this as a strategy among transgender kids, even in the amazing recent resource book, Trans Bodies, Trans Selves. But, it resonates with me.)

When I was even younger — seven or eight, I’d guess — I wanted to be a boy. That’s how I think of it: it was aspirational more than anything else. I remember standing on a baseball diamond at day camp, playing terribly as always. A girl on the opposing team ran past me as she rounded the bases and growled, “Are you a boy or a girl?” She was intending to bully me, but I was thrilled that I was confusing her. I wore boy’s clothes, bought in the actual boys’ section of clothing stores, whenever I could. After a long fight about my outfit for a family wedding, I persuaded my mom to let me forgo a dress and wear a suit, a hideous green ’70s number with unfortunate flowers on it. I was convinced that my body was becoming a “boy’s body.” I wanted people to call me Leonard, the only boy’s name I could think of that started with an L.

I don’t remember when or how I stopped being or actively wanting to be Leonard. My memory is murky. For many years, I had no language or venue in which to talk about this. I know that I was always an extreme rule follower and people pleaser. I wasn’t going to get to be Leonard. I was being socialized to be a girl. So, I became one. I know that’s not something everyone can do. It’s certainly not something young people should do: fall in line with the gender they are being socialized into.

As I grew up, I faced — and continue to face — the structural forms of inequality and the daily microaggressions that come with presenting as a woman every day. These experiences have made me who I have become, and I would not take them back. I became an ardent and proud feminist, sociologist, teacher and mom. I married the boy who was my chess and White Sox buddy and my first crush in elementary school. And when I found gender, queer and LGBTQ studies, they filled my head and heart and I felt like I was home.

Leonard is still part of me. He wasn’t just some passing phase. I will never be fully comfortable having the physical traits that get me called a woman every day. There are so many things about “womanhood” that I feel I don’t do naturally at all. When I talk with trans guys about their stories or read memoirs and testimonials by trans men or transmasculine writers, I think, with a little jealousy and a lot of admiration: I might have been these guys. I also know in my bones that gender is a spectrum and not a binary. The binary is too restrictive, for me and, I’d argue, for everyone. Everyone.

But I am in quite a conventional package. There is no denying that I benefit from cisgender privilege and straight privilege every minute of my life. These intersect with my race and class privilege. I know this, and I try to pay as much attention to it in as many ways as I can, in my work and in my life. No need to be sanctimonious about it, I’m making it up as I go along. There is so much I don’t know, and everyday I try to put myself in situations where I’m learning. I have learned from many mentors — and hopefully one of the things they have taught me is when to lead, teach and speak, and when to follow, listen and just shut up.

This lifelong privilege is what determines that the letter that most accurately defines me in the alphabet soup that is current queer identity and politics is A — for ally — rather than LGBT or Q (though I’d like to think I can be both an A and at least a little bit Q). My allyship for LGBTQ social justice comes from my political commitments. It comes from loving and caring about so many amazing LGBT and queer people and feeling that my wellbeing is inextricably tied to their wellbeing. It also comes from my own story: a story I’ll continue to work to understand for the rest of my life.

Eric Moutsos, Utah Officer Who Resigned After Objecting To Gay Pride Parade Assignment, Speaks Out

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A former Salt Lake City police officer who was put on leave and later resigned after he objected to riding in the motorcycle brigade at the front of last year’s gay pride parade is speaking out against what he believes was a violation of his religious liberties.

Eric Moutsos, 33, said Wednesday that he was unfairly branded a bigot despite simply asking to swap roles and work a different part of the parade in June 2014. Moutsos, a Mormon, said he felt uncomfortable doing what he considered celebratory circles with other motorcycles leading the parade because of his religious views. But he said he never refused to work the parade. “It looks like we and I are in support of this parade,” Moutsos said he told superiors about being in the motor brigade. “I said I would feel the same way if this was an abortion parade. I would feel the same way if it was a marijuana parade.”

In an interview with The Associated Press, Moutsos said he’s coming out with his story now to be a voice in a national debate about how to safeguard religious beliefs while protecting LGBT rights.

Salt Lake Police Chief Chris Burbank said he stands behind his decision to put Moutsos on leave, saying he will not tolerate officers allowing personal biases to interfere with their work.

“It has nothing to do with religious freedom, that has to do with the hatred of those individuals and what the parade stands for, which is about unity and coming together,” Burbanks said. “How can I then send that officer out to a family fight that involves a gay couple or a lesbian walking down the street?”

Moutsos said he felt compelled to come forward with his story after months of silence after he listened to leaders with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announce a campaign last month calling for new laws that protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination while also protecting people who assert their religious beliefs.

Moutsos issued a six-page statement through his attorney Monday that didn’t have his name. But he decided to reveal his identity in an interview he gave to the Deseret News and KSL-TV that came out Tuesday night.

“It is unquestionably my duty as a police officer to protect everyone’s right to hold a parade or other event, but is it also my duty to celebrate everyone’s parade?” Moutsos wrote in the statement.

Several state legislatures, including Utah, are considering anti-LGBT discrimination laws alongside measures to safeguard religious liberties. Moutsos hasn’t been invited to talk to lawmakers, but he said he would testify if asked.

“We can 100-percent disagree and still 100-percent love,” Moutsos said. “I hate that we’re labeled in this way that is so divisive.”

Moutsos’ life changed dramatically in the days leading up to last summer’s gay pride parade. He had been talking with his bosses about resolving his objections while still helping out during the parade when he was informed that he was being put on leave for discrimination — a move that shocked him.

The story became public after police issued a news release saying an unnamed officer had been put on leave for refusing the gay pride parade assignment. The department said it does not tolerate bias and bigotry, and it does not allow personal beliefs to enter into whether an officer will accept an assignment.

Burbank said it is inappropriate for Moutsos to come out now with his story. Moutsos forfeited his right to defend himself during a police internal investigation when he resigned before they ever talked with him, Burbank said.

Moutsos, a married father of four, said he has gay friends and family and has no problem with 95 percent of their life choices. He said he is offended by the notion that he would treat gays and lesbians differently as an officer.

Moutsos has since found work with another police agency in the state. But he said the last six months were difficult and depressing for him and his family.

His attorney, Bret Rawson, said they have not made a decision about a possible lawsuit over the handling of the situation.

Moutsos acknowledged that he could have been more diplomatic in his conversations with superiors. But he doesn’t regret asserting his beliefs.

“I used to be quite the hellion back in my day, and I found what I believe is God kind of later in my life,” Moutsos said. “Now, I have such a strong, deep faith in Him . . . He and I love people, but I do not advocate certain things in people’s lives. In this parade, there were messages that I don’t advocate.”

Why Pride Still Matters

As the LGBT community has made progress in recent years, I’ve heard people questioning whether we still need events like this. We do.

Why I Won’t Be at Pride This Year, in One Long Rant

1. Because I don’t have 0-percent body fat, and, from what I keep reading, that is the purpose of Pride. And those who tell us it has nothing to do with body fat, and that we need to stop obsessing over unattainable physical-perfection goals, tend to possess unattainable physical perfection, like Matthew J. Dempsey. Have you seen him? We might as well have Angelina Jolie do a video on how silly it is for women to complain about being ugly… or leading unglamorous lives.

2. Because my straight friends have much more fun than I do, laughing from the sidelines. And their expressions are a tad too similar to the looks on their faces when gawking at the monkeys in the Bronx Zoo.

3. Because the last time I attended one of those big Pride parties, my date ditched me (and “ditched” is the correct word) before I showed up, and emailed me the next night to say, “Sorry, but I met someone else when I showed up — I really hate myself for it.” It wasn’t his email that upset me so much. It was that he never did meet someone else; he just decided he’d rather go solo and thought the made-up story would make me feel better. It was, like, so humiliating.

4. Because I have a hard time relating to a generation of men who cite Mean Girls as the film that best defines them.

5. Because I’m tired of cloned-looking, butch-acting, fake-smiling men greeting me once a year with forced promises of acceptance and love, if I just join them. Whoops, that was supposed to be why I dislike the Mormon missionary guys, but it’s easy to confuse the two.

6. Because I’m holding out for a better offer, like a stay in East Hampton or a beach house on Fire Island. Trading up is the new Pride.

7. Because every gay magazine giving me advice on what to do for Pride shows a semi-naked, 20-something model and suggests the all-night dick party, the all-boat dick party, the all-day dick party, the all-dancing dick party, and all dicks wherever I go — and all sponsored by liquor companies. That’s fine, but I’ll save a lot of money and have a lot better chance of finding a drunken lay if I hang around “straight” Irish bars on St. Patrick’s Day.

8. Because straight entertainers are now the main gay attraction. This shouldn’t bother me a bit, because Demi Lovato is performing, and she is the first name that comes to mind when I think of Pride. Well, except Lea Michele, but between butchering Barbra, perfecting the artifice of autotune, and creating one of the most self-centered, annoying TV personas ever, we need her for something far more important to our cause: World Pride!

9. Because I just turned 50, and, judging from everything I read, I no longer exist, except in movies about gay men who no longer exist.

10. Because I’m tired of smiley-faced men pretending we’re friends and hugging and kissing me even though we’ve just met, and then asking for my number because it’s all about togetherness. Whoops, that was supposed to be why I dislike the gay AA guys, but it’s easy to confuse the two.

11. Because the only Molly I’ve ever been interested in starred in The Breakfast Club. Give me a holler if Miss Ringwald makes an appearance.

12. Because Pride is on a Sunday, and TV offers a lot more variety that night, especially when it comes to unique personalities, clever escapism, and the kind of drama you actually want to witness.

13. Because if I want to stare at a lineup of half-naked, muscled-up men who look exactly the same except for the position of their tattoos, and pretend to be besties with them, and collect as many of these guys in my social circles so that people will think that I too am fabulous and popular, I can simply “friend” them on Facebook, “like” everything they do, and never leave the house. Friend-request me if you agree — and if you’re hot.

14. Because the only difference between Pride and Groundhog Day, as well as the remakes Source Code and Edge of Tomorrow, is that I don’t always get the guy or the happy ending, and I age a year each time it repeats.

15. Because going to Disney World is less of a hassle and a lot more authentic.

16. Because, between the ridiculous prices, the crowds, the glitter that stays with me for weeks, the inevitability of losing your friends in the masses, the fondling from guys with dilated pupils, the vomit viewing, the rush to make friends with anyone with a parade-route view, the heatstroke or pouring rain, the vicious queens kicking me with heels, the vicious drag queens kicking me with heels, the vicious lesbians kicking me with boots, and the sexy naked guys so loaded that by the end of the night they’ll sleep with just about… ah, heck, I’ll be there. I’m not proud.
