The Boys in the Band (2020)

Have you seen the gay classic "The Boys in the Band" now playing on Netflix (or perhaps earlier on Broadway)? One noticeable change from the original film is that Ryan Murphy and team managed to quell some of the venom and show moments of love among a few of the friends. What did you think? Did you have a favorite character?

Brawley police investigate killing of transgender woman found inside an abandoned home

While the recent death of Marilyn Cazares is still being investigated, what we do know is this:
Human Rights Campaign: "It is clear that fatal violence disproportionately affects transgender women of color -- particularly Black transgender women -- and that the intersections of racism, sexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and unchecked access to guns conspire to deprive them of employment, housing, healthcare and other necessities."

How LGBTQ+ People Can Get Help and Resources During Coronavirus

If you're LGBTQ and sheltering-in-place as a part of COVID-19 prevention, here's some interesting reading. One addresses pandemic-related resources to access as LGBTQ centers across the nation close; the other looks at the impact on hooking up:

N.J. bans gay and transgender 'panic defenses'

In the past year, six states have joined California in banning the absurd legal defense of gay or transgender panic -- meaning no one can use a victim's sexual orientation or identity as an excusable reason for acting violently toward them. Yep, it happened that recently -- and California only banned it in 2014. #lgbt #lgbtq #gaypalmsprings #palmsprings #homophobia #transphobia #trans #transgender
