My Lesbo is an Alien: NBC Picks Up “My Best Friend is a Lesbo”

Posted September 23, 2011 by Kristi

When I first heard the title of NBC’s latest stab at the progressive sitcom genre My Best Friend is a Lesbo, I flashed back to Sci-fi titles of my youth: My Step-mom is an Alien. My Teacher is an Alien. Right off the bat, what a way to make a clear reference to science fiction and […]

The Big Apple on a Small Budget

Posted October 22, 2012 by Sarah

Being a full-time university student, living on your own and being entirely self-sufficient is hard! And you’re pretty much screwed when it comes to traveling. Friends who still live at home can afford to go to Cuba, Europe and Cancun every year or so, but where’s my white sand beach? I never found a white sand […]

VIDEO: Madonna’s Girl Gone Wild

Posted March 21, 2012 by Ty

Full Disclosure: I am a late blooming Madonna gay. That is, I had only discovered her years after I discovered myself.

The local news cares about queer kids and takes on trans issues. What is going on?

Tegan & Sara Are Ready To Dance: ‘Closer’ and ‘I’m Not Your Hero’ VIDEOS

Posted October 23, 2012 by Caitlin

Any chance to write about these two – I’ll take it. My listening relationship with Tegan and Sara began along with the insatiable need that teenage girls have for empowering emotional girl voices on constant loop on their iPods and in their heads. In high school experience, Tegan and Sara were my go-to for those, […]

Posted September 2, 2011 by Rosel

Rosel: Now that summer is on its way out (sniff), it’s time to talk about the upcoming school year. It seems like there are some interesting changes happening in the States regarding LGBT school population; Jezebel reported this week that Elmhurst College in Illinois has become the first college to ask LGBT students to self-identify, as […]
