What the TCA Win Means for RuPaul's Drag Race

Justin Hernandez | July 28, 2014 | TV
The TCA win for Outstanding Reality Series solidifies the fact that RuPaul's Drag Race is a key player in the reality TV genre. I believe this will put it in a new stratosphere and help it reach a larger audience, as well as gain more recognition from the television industry.

As the Seasons Change

Billi Gordon, Ph.D. | July 28, 2014 | Fifty
Infallible youth and the power of "bar cute" have evolved into vulnerability, conditional surrender, and the wisdom of age. Nothing compares with the vibrant visual symphony of the colorful leaves of fall. The summer sun is exquisite, but equally magical is winter's first snow.

At a recent protest rally on the streets of Boston, just one of many that I've seen personally, watched on TV and read about, members of our community went at each other's throats, demonstrating not only how we're not monolithic when it comes to passion and politics but how LGBTQs are inextricably tied to world events.

A new reality show about straight men who have sex with other men for money, titled Broke Straight Boys, is coming to television later this year.

Brian Stone | July 25, 2014 | Gay Voices
I'll be called out as a hetero-normative cisgender supporter of the patriarchy for saying this, but it would be nice if we could use English to talk about our issues. Maybe it's a bit quaint to advocate simplicity, but it seems to me that the LGBT elite have created an entirely new language made up of six syllable words.
