Welcome to Gay / LGBTQI Atheists & friends!

I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017. I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

That will leave this group without a moderator. Since this group was started by a member who hasn't visited Nexus for many years, it is not possible to select or designate a moderator. Instead, I will send notification to Br. Richard that the group will be without a moderator. It will then be up to him to decide how to proceed.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!
Daniel W

Carl I concur.  You posted some wonderful videos.  I think the page intro video needs chanbing, and one of those would be perfect.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 2, 2017 at 1:17pm

Carl, an excellent video, Heartbeat tells the story beautifully. 

Comment by Loren Miller on August 2, 2017 at 8:08am

Carl, "Heartbeat" was FANTASTIC, incredibly well and sensitively done.  Don't know how you found it, but glad you did!

Why Autocrats Fear LGBT Rights

Masha Gessen

New York Review of Books

. . . Many commentators immediately branded this move [banning transsexuals from the military] a distraction, an attempt to draw attention away from the Russian-conspiracy story, the health care battle, or anything else they deem more important than the president’s declaration that a group of Americans are second-class citizens. This is not only a grievous insult to transgender people but a basic failure to understand the emotional logic of Trumpism. This is a logic that Trump shares with most modern-day strongmen, and it was this logic that made his attack on LGBT rights so predictable, even while he was literally draping a rainbow flag over his body last year.
. . . queer rights are anything but a distraction: they are a frontier, sometimes the frontier in the global turn toward autocracy.
. . . in Russia queer people make an ideal target for government propaganda because the very idea of them serves as a convenient stand-in for an entire era of liberalization that is now shunned.
. . . This is no distraction: it is the very heart of Trumpism.

I found this alternate version of "Masculine Women! Feminine Men!" which I like better.  It has some additional words and is sung a bit slower.

Thanks, Carl, for sharing "Masculine Women! Feminine Men!" The Queer Music Heritage site has lots of versions, and even sheet music.

Thanks also for "In a Heartbeat"! Damn onions...

Donald Trump tweeting: “After consulting my generals, I’m banning transgender troops from service!” He’s in the Commander-in-Chief square at the top of an organizational chart showing [first row] General Confusion, General Disarray, General Disappointment, General Anxiety, General Ignorance, [second row] General Anarchy, General Contempt, General Bewilderment, General Hostility, General Lunacy, General Stupidity, [third row] General Anesthesia, General Tso’s, General Relativity, General Mills, General Hospital, General Quarters, General Motors, [fourth row] General Vicinity, Gen. Lee, Gen. Store, GE, Surgeon Gen., Gen. Public, Dollar Gen., Gen. Population, Gen. Contra., Gen. Pract. [and other rows of tiny boxes]

"If this doesn't play well, you can decide who goes next."

tRump himself! And Pence, and Ryan, and the rest of the Rethuglicans whose voter suppression succeeded so well!
