Love Walter: Cupid Don’t Love Me Like He Used To Do

Dear Walter, What is it like being a dating advice columnist? —Aspiring Advice Columnist Dear Aspiring Advice Columnist, I'll tell you in 5 ways what’s it’s like to walk in my Jimmy Choo shoes. 1. Some tit for so much tat. People feel comfortable swapping sex stories like ghost stories. I’m not the type to sit around all day talking about how much dick I’ve sucked. [ 437 more words ]

‘BATWOMAN’ is Here and She’s Queer

The comic book community can be very…male centered. In the 2000’s Marvel and DC revamped their super hero storylines, making a conscious effort to have their comic book characters do a better job of reflecting the world we live in. The decision to diversify the TYPE of comic book hero, villain, and general character we see in comic books was made in order to capture a new wider audience of buyer. [ 704 more words ]

Legalizing Gay and Rejecting Colonial Relics

African homophobes have argued that homosexuality is a Western import, a consequence of mingling with White folks. Journalists, researchers, and African LGBTQ+ people have been pushing back -- against homophobia in law and policy, in particular. Instead, they point to homophobia, not homosexuality, as a cultural stain of European influence. The 2000s illuminated disturbing episodes of intolerance and violence against LGBT+ people across the continent. [ 762 more words ]

How the Fat Activist Movement Could Be Killing Black Queer Women

I want to start off by saying I am a fat Black lesbian. Yes, it is okay to call me fat, because that is what I am. I am five feet, three inches tall, and I weigh roughly 220 pounds. I have struggled with my weight my entire life, like most overweight Americans. As a child, my mother constantly tried to get me to lose weight, but the way she fed us would seem to contradict that goal. [ 1,046 more word ]

'Pose' Episode 3: The Ethos of Survival Season 2 Review

For those of us who live at the shoreline standing upon the constant edges of decision crucial and alone for those of us who cannot indulge the passing dreams of choice The opening lines from Audrey Lorde's “A Litany for Survival” immediately came to mind when thinking of the ways that queer black womxn are constantly in survival mode. A sometimes unspoken but understood barrier of existence that does not offer you the chance to make mistakes, be vulnerable or be in the wrong place at the wrong time because it will literally cost you your freedom or life.

A Reflection on Stonewall50, The Whitewashing of a Revolution

As Malcom X stated in 1962 and I modified in 2019: “The most disrespected person in America is the black womxn. The most unprotected person in America is the black womxn. The most neglected person in American is the black womxn.” Womxn because black and brown folks of trans experience have historically been muted, ostracized and exploited. The interlocking systems of oppression that impact access to resources, showcase that the experiences of black and brown womxn are different than white folks and cis women. [ 835 more words ]

The Wonderful World of Dating While Black, Lesbian, Polyamorous, and Satanist

When you are Black and queer, there is the racism of the wider LGBTQ community and society at large, and the fact that women who love women are, in general, a miniscule piece of the population. But what happens when there are things, even beyond the aforementioned characteristics, about YOU that makes dating even harder? I know that story all too well. [ 1,078 more word ]

Disempowering Gay Men of Color Through White Romances

“Change comes with time.” It’s a tired response that minorities receive from friends, family, acquaintances, social justice leaders and even one we give ourselves. It’s a train of thought that we adopt to acquire patience while enduring oppression, misrepresentation or worse yet, no representation at all, be that in politics, higher education, media or other institutions. As someone who has been involved in the film industry and marketing industry, I can attest that time and time again, the gatekeepers of inclusion have found depictions of the LGBTQ+ community acceptable only when incorporating a White LGBTQ+ person.

‘Pose’ Season 2, Episode 2: Sex Work, Family, White People Sh*t and Self-Worth

First off Elektra is the bitch that everyone hates, but low key—maybe high key—wants to be because she is the epitome of #thatbitch despite that her behavior towards others is highly toxic and manipulative. She has gone back to her old ways which is disheartening because I really wanted her to play nice this season. However, I am feeling her new side hustle, and lets the audience experience sex work as an active choice that someone is making. [ 788 more words ]

Pose FX and the Discardment of Black and Brown Bodies

The disposability and dehumanization of black, brown and queer bodies is portrayed with the cold and heart-wrenching start of Pose season 2. As Blanca and Pray Tell travel to Hart Island we start to unpack history that has perpetuated the lack of equity and care for those who live on the margins constructed by heteronormative white America. We are hit with the realities that have existed and continue to exist in society, particularly thinking of those most impacted by HIV/AIDS and the ways that trans black women are being murdered.

How I Stopped Coddling White Fragility in My Relationships – And How You Can, Too

Being Black in America is not an easy thing. Anyone reading here likely knows that. To this day, we continue to live out the discriminatory legacies of slavery, Jim Crow, mass incarceration, racist housing policies, the war on drugs, voter suppression, and all manner of things that no white person will ever truly understand. Every time we turn our televisions and radios on, get on the internet, or walk out our front doors, we experience racism. [ 1,082 more word ]

Of Course a ‘Straight Pride’ Parade Would Happen in Boston

Whenever Queer Trans Black friends tell me they’re thinking about coming to visit me in Boston, I immediately reply, “why?” “Never come in the Winter. Fall is chill if you’re in to foliage.

#FitnessFridays: The Keto Diet to Shred Weight

Historically, the Ketogenic diet was discovered as early as the 20th century and was (and still is) an effective solution for individuals suffering from epilepsy. In the early times, bodybuilders used to apply it without actually knowing the mechanisms behind it through doing a “fish and water” diet. Additionally, it is the diet that humans historically adhered to naturally before processed sugars became so readily available. [ 959 more words ]

#FitnessFridays: The Benefits of Core Circuit

There is a combination of exercise that when combined with a healthy diet and an adequate calorie intake, will keep inches off your waist line, and allow those abs to peek through.

When deciding on what core exercise I should do when I’m training abs, I choose plank ab circuits. [ 430 more words ]
