Beyond ‘Queer’ Fashion

“The style is all about identity and unfettered self-expression,” said Rob Smith, the founder of the Phluid Project, an outpost of gender-neutral fashion in Lower Manhattan. “At the same time it’s a political statement, a symbol of resistance against a repressive government. It’s a way of stating, ‘I’m going to push back.’” #QueerFashion

A scattering of designers are invoking — and denying — the label to assert their identities and ours.

New 'L Word' Showrunner Reveals What to Expect From Showtime Sequel

“In her first interview since Showtime picked up The L Word sequel to series, Ryan speaks exclusively with The Hollywood Reporter about the pitch that got her the job, how she'll avoid the mistakes of the original (trans characters will be played by trans actors) and the one thing she won't do (bring back characters from the dead). (Sorry, Jenny.)” #TheLWord

In her first interview about the new take on Ilene Chaiken's groundbreaking drama, Marja-Lewis Ryan talks exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter about how she hopes the sequel series will expand the scope of the original.

We denounce SCOTUS' revival of Trump's trans military ban. Trans people have been serving openly since 2016—without a negative impact on military effectiveness. This is an infuriating reminder that transphobia is the driving force for this entire case.

“Despite our many deep and personal conversations, we failed to discuss the importance of having honest conversations about the complexities of what our interracial relationship actually means in the social context.” #QueerRelationships

“Neglecting to view our relationship through an intersectional lens damn near destroyed our relationship.”

Why Equality in Queer Relationships Could Look Different

“Having a successful relationship does require both parties contributing to the health and growth of that partnership, but that doesn’t necessarily mean splitting that participation equally all of the time. Whether it’s finances, household work, or emotional labor, we as individuals, bring different resources to the table (these resources can be fluid––changing and shifting within the relationship over time.) A balanced, healthy partnership means those resources should complement one another.” #queerrelationships

While the 50/50 premise may work for some couples, it doesn’t account for the dynamics in an interracial queer relationship.

Tessa Thompson And Janelle Monae Confirm Relationship

“She went on to note her trepidations about going public with a relationship. One on hand, they’re normal people who want to love in the privacy of their own homes. On the other, however, they are aware of how their platforms could help normalize LGBTQ relationships and empower people of lesser privilege existing within these spaces.”

Tessa Thompson officially came out as bisexual and confirmed her dating relationship with ‘Dirty Computer’ singer Janelle Monae with ‘Net A Porter.’
