well I know my POV is totally biased, living in brooklyn, but I do think that in the larger (straighter) world, people who have queer friends & fam know all about pride month; as for the rest, probably not so much. but, again, it depends what circles you travel in. just recently there was an op...
...I seem to remember your mom being a pretty cool lady, too! she was(is) so one of the gals ;p
I'm with you, nerdyboi
my parents were pretty much the first people I came out to, because at that age (14, 15) I was still completely open and honest with them about everything, as they were with me; because they're so non-judgemental, there was never a reason to keep things from them. anyway, i had just had my holy-...
hardcore brooklynites know that fredrick olmstead-- who designed both central park and prospect park-- called prospect park his crown jewel, not central park. it's really the most wonderful park in nyc. just chillin on a blanket with my friends, and some secret booze (we use sesame street cups as a...
this is very confusing for me-- your dyklet/cougar conversation is making me realize I am hopelessly adrift in the world of generational identity. High school is a pretty distant memory, but I'm definitely nowhere near cougar town, either...where can I point my mojo? (Side note-- hello, dyklets!...
...serves me right for skimming the credits! thanx for making note, prof ;p
that's pretty much it. been my favorite food since I was five, and I cannot live without it! (and I'm not talking about that bullshit-nouveau-fusion-cuisine with cream cheese and macadamia nuts...I'm talking about raw fish and seeweed!)
this is beautiful work, and you asked some very insightful questions in the interview, patricia. it does make me cringe to think about what's gonna happen to all the beautiful, tattooed, gum-chewing freaks when christopher street really starts getting gentrified...of course there's been buzz about...
this study reminds me of the theory my gf & I had in college, when I was a TA in the faculty infant/toddler center, that you could always pick out the kids w/ 2 moms cause they had the best lunches. I think it comes down to the same thing: kids of same-sex couples are all wanted kids, all...
love your analogy-- lezzie films are like having your girlfriend make you dinner! (unless your girlfriend was me, cause I'm an awesome cook, heheh...) and they did quite a nice job (in the trailer, at least) making indiana seem all sexy and european. thanks, mr. italian director man. so when will...
gonna see me some moon art! and I believe that's miss cage being sexily throttled in that photo...?
yeah, that's cause you guys are over in hipster heaven, and it's a bit of a schlep. but it's very much worth the trip to the slope, promise...
WIN
...this is awesome. if I hadn't been half-passed-out on my migraine meds all day today, I might've hauled my ass out to billyburg to check this out. at least it wasn't crappy migraine weather yesterday...BK pride was perfect!
thanks for this post prof, and may I say, welcome to the hood. we should all meet up at ginger's and make some lezzie-reality-tv of our own
you go, Poland queers and allies! 
...100%, actually. if you don't believe me, go check out the board of Jewish Fast for Gaza (http://fastforgaza.net/) and Rabbis for Human Rights North America (http://www.rhr-na.org/). my rabbi is co-chair. and I am damn proud of it. I just don't like it when someone who is educated deliberately...
I hear you, dude, and I actually agree-- I've always really resented the mainstream Jewish-American approach to Israel, i.e., that we're all supposed to blindly support it no matter what, because if we don't we're siding with the terrorists. but also, Israel recruits Jews from all over the world to...
I'm with you, kel. and with eddie vale. we should be organizing around issues, not around identities-- that's the only way we're ever gonna build any bridges enough to throw our weight around. like the famous image of all the little fish swimming together in the shape of one really big fish to...
and I pretty much agree w/ your assessment, jules. her dark humor is missing, but I think I could handle the "serious gaga" if there were more fluidity in the tempo of the piece overall...there's a certain monotone to this that keeps it from reaching a satisfying dénouement, IMHO. I still...
