Hollywood is exploiting us while considering us unfit for trans-specific health coverage.
Netflix's brand new series is not only this summer's most binge-worthy delight, but should be applauded as a game changer in the burgeoning world of globally-designed entertainment.
Despite the recent, dismal report on the lack of diversity in the 100 top-grossing fictional films between 2007 and 2014--among other depressing statistics, only 30 percent of speaking roles belonged to women--girl-on-girl friendship on TV is thriving.
Urban teachers rarely hear a negative word by a student about their mother. These fathers echoed students' devotion to their mothers which serves as the "protected territory of the hearts, demilitarized zone in lives of conflict."

I have an unhealthy obsession with Netflix. That being said, I have an even unhealthier obsession over Orange is the New Black. I don't know if I should be proud or concerned when I say I finished the entire third season in one day but at least I can say OITNB taught me something significant in its third season.
It would make perfect sense for Mad Men to win its record-setting fifth Best Drama Emmy. And it's high time for Jon Hamm, after eight nominations for his masterful performance as the iconic Don Draper, to finally take the Best Actor prize.
I decided that I wanted to hand out my very own Emmy Awards today and thanks to a slight typographical error when first writing this piece I decided they would be called The Memy Awards -- my picks for performances and series that warranted being singled out for recognition.
We had a chance to catch up with DeLaria again last week to talk with her about the third season of Orange Is the New Black, her new jazz album House of David, and her sense of hope for the modern queer movement.

The Designing Women Awards stand out because they pay tribute to women, an unusual event in the notoriously male-dominated world of film and television. Women remain underrepresented both in front of and behind the camera.
Actress Rachel Resheff is, um, amazing. That's the word fits the bill! She already has five Broadway shows under her belt and will now be performing at 54 Below in NYC. For you Orange is the New Black fans, you will recognize Rachel as young Alex Vause!
Ever have a friend who fits so many things into one day that it's impossible to understand where they find the time for everything? Well, that's actress Rachel Resheff. I can't even imagine how she found the time for this interview!
In its third season with Netflix, Orange Is the New Black has had a significant effect on America's consciousness regarding: race, women and incarceration, and transgender issues.
For all the trans youth who are finally seeing themselves represented, who are now finding their own voices, writing their own blogs, and dancing freely, I'm ecstatic. But with new gains, there is loss. I care about the extinction of an entire people: lesbians.
What happened on the last season of Netflix's hit show Orange is the New Black? So many things!
