Something I Heard….

For several years I haven’t heard the  word: “Minority” bandied about as much as I have during this election deason. As a woman of colour, I became comfortable in not referring to myself or to any other person of color as a minority Oddly, through over the past several onth the word: :Minority” had been more visible and audible in the news. Whereas reporters would once refer the \African American and Hispanic” community, now I hear ‘Minority’ used in its stead. I feel as emotionally drained, as the feeling I have after watching  a film […]

Donald Trump got to wave a rainbow flag at a campaign rally, and here’s why that’s messed up

   OH Is This PHOTO A BUCKET Of Bullsh!t Or What?! This presidential election has been so, so strange. And things just got weirder. Republican candidate Donald Trump waved a rainbow flag at rally, which is weird, because Trump isn’t supportive of the LGBT community. Trump held the “LGBT for Trump” sign, and got a lot of people chatting about how pro-LGBT he is… but holding a pride flag doesn’t make someone an ally. It just means they can hold a flag for five seconds. The internet isn’t thrilled because Trump’s policies don’t at all match […]

And I Thought The #Ballie Romance Was Short!

I guess I was wrong, Kat Rence must be the unluckiest lesbian (?) on the planet!  I put the “?” after the word lesbian because viewers will never know whether the hot character on Fox’s new series: The Exorcist is a lesbian or not (At least not yet). See just as it started getting good between Kat and her passenger Julia (did I mention they were in a car?) Kat took her eyes off of the road and that was the end of anything that might have been. Now considering that this developing relationship lasted […]

Coming Out as a Writer

by Nicole Dennis-Benn My father left Jamaica when I was three. We were practically strangers until he suggested I live with him in America while attending college. In the U.S. — my new country, my new home — writing became a necessity for my survival. I wrote in journals, scribbling poetry to pacify my homesickness. I liked to imagine the words floating on water, carrying me back home. Writing helped me navigate the complicated relationship I had with home and, most importantly, with myself — each identity in conflict with the other. I wrote to make sense of it all. I […]

Something Like A Phenomena

Oh hell yeah I totally shipped Helen and Nikki from Bad Girls, it was the first season of a show that took its time to meticulously cultivate a relationship between a jailer and her ward for over 3 seasons. Sure NOW in 2016 the dialogue and style of the series seems a bit dated, however this show TOOK ITS SWEET TIME TO GROW THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO LEADS and best of all is the only prison show to date to have a long hoped for happy ending for at least one lesbian character in […]

WENTWORTH Ep 12 Spoiler Alert!

Bea Smith found love in a hopeless place. Now it’s official — Bea Smith is dead. Those Cheekbones OMGoddess Wentworth‘s season 4 (series final for me) final saw the program’s most iconic character Bea Smith (played by Danielle Cormack) die at the hands of Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson, played by Pamela Rabe. Ferguson stabbed Smith 7 times to 9 times with a screwdriver that she disarmed from Bea Smith, but only AFTER Bea Smith Intentionally took Ferguson’s hand and impalied herself with the screwdriver 7 times! Shocked, Ferguson quickly regroups saying: “This is what you […]

Not Quite Over #Ballie Yet…But Getting Close

Thanks to Elizabeth Black: A$$wipe Extraordinaire for putting a damper on #Ballie Mania. Anyway I created what is probably and more than likely my last #Ballie video.  Not because of Elizabeth Black’s asinine online antics (Speaking for an entire population that hasn’t seen the season 4 final) but because there is only so much that can be done with limited video clips.

No Wonder

Donald Trump really tried hard to get the acronym LGBTQ out of his mouth at the Republican convention, but he managed.  This lead conservative pundits to praise him for even mentioning the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer communities.  The G.O.P moves slower than a mudslide in winter.

RISEN Part TWO

The final chapter concerning Bea Smith and Allie Novak’s love.  I guess this is a bittersweet mixed blessing because it assures that I don’t waste my life in preparation to watch a series that I know will devolve into depravity. RISEN Part Two by a-san2 Also since I am not really as interested in any of the other characters, well at least not as much as I was with Ballie, I couldn’t care less as to their fates. Yes even Allie, sorry girl but I am not feeling you with Kaz Proctor and fear that […]

Worthiness

White Lives Also Matter Demonstrations over Dylan Noble’s death – friends of the unarmed teen shot by police say they only want justice Dylan Noble was killed by police during a traffic stop. I haven’t written a post in quite a while. Frankly I am disillusioned with the LGBT online community and its rampamt case of Cognitive Dissonance, for example: Those damn recaps, or an Interview with Tegan and Sara, blathering on about their 17 year career in the music industry as if that will actually  result in anything substantive being done to end the […]
