Absolut’s New Campaign Shines A Light On Queer Struggles Around The WorldHuffpost
Carl, an excellent video, Heartbeat tells the story beautifully.
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
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...
