Is this to be the brave new gay world? A world in which the public face of the queer community -- the gay, the white, the cisgender and the wealthy -- take their place among society's elite, leaving the transgender, the non-white, the poor and the homeless to fend for themselves?
Looking to fill time during a slow news week, the good folks at Fox and Friends devoted multiple segments of their July 9th show to Ariana Grande's "I hate America" comments. The conversation fit nicely into the Fox News narrative.
Women should be allowed to be sexy without being slammed. So, thank you Ariana, Miley, and Kim for speaking out about all these issues surrounding female sexuality. Your audiences of young women will really benefit from hearing you.

Rock City's new project #WhatDreamsAreMadeOf is an homage to St. Thomas and their struggle. They hope their new project can narrate the stories many have overcome and still face, specifically growing up disadvantaged and in poverty.
Ariana Grande seems to be everywhere. She's got more singles out there than a J-Date mixer, just showed up on The Grammys, and I hear Starbucks will soon introduce the Ariana Grande-sized latte.
