Does Federal Law Protect LGBTQ People? This Poll Reveals A Serious Misconception
According to a new survey, almost half of all Americans wrongly believe that federal law protects LGBTQ people from discrimination. In a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday, 45% of respondents incorrectly claimed that federal anti-discrimination protections apply to LGBTQ Americans, when in fact, no such protections exist due to longstanding opposition from conservatives.
“When you talk to people across the country, regardless of where they stand on LGBTQ equality, so many don’t know that in 30 states LGBTQ people are still at are risk of being fired solely because of their gender identity or sexual orientation,” Charlotte Clymer, the Human Rights Campaign's press secretary for rapid response, told Reuters. “These things are flying under the radar for most Americans.”

Special’s Ryan O’Connell: Stop using disabled people as ‘inspiration porn’ / Amplify by Gay Times
“It’s been really, really surreal to be honest! I feel like I always believed in what we were doing and what we made, but to have people as bowled over as they are is incredibly emotional and surreal,” he says. “The messages I’ve been getting from people who are disabled, and gay, or gay and disabled, or just even not is overwhelming and I can’t wait to unpack it with my therapist!”
Written and led on screen by Ryan, the eight excellent 15-minute episodes take inspiration from his 2015 memoir, I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves and features a partly-fictional version of himself. Produced by Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory, Special has gone global with fans from across the world going crazy for Ryan O’Connell. And while he’s game for it all, there’s a serious message as well: Giving young queer and disabled people the role model Ryan looked for, but never found.
Greg Berlanti Says Gay Execs Stopped Him From Casting Gay Actors
GREG BERLANTI OPENED UP ABOUT HOLLYWOOD’S INTERNALIZED HOMOPHOBIA.
LGBTQ representation on television is at an all-time high. Sadly, many queer actors are only cast as characters that match their identities.

Mister Rogers Was Allegedly Bisexual, and Twitter Is Thrilled
In conversation with one of his friends, the openly gay Dr. William Hirsch, Fred Rogers himself concluded that if sexuality was measured on a scale of one to ten: “Well, you know, I must be right smack in the middle. Because I have found women attractive and I have found men attractive.”
One Day at a Time is in danger of cancellation. Here's why we need to save it.
From the pilot we could tell this sitcom was different, despite having all the hallmarks of our beloved TV family comedies: the live studio audience; the extra bright studio sitcom lighting; the three-wall living room set. But this family unabashedly spoke Spanish without translation and the first episode dealt with everything from racism and feminism to veterans and depression. We may not have been in the audience, cheering when living legend Rita Moreno made her grand entrance by opening her own damn curtains, but by god it was immediately evident to anyone who watched that One Day at a Time was going to be the light we so desperately needed, the comfort food — ropa vieja, if you will — that would nourish us even after our binge was over. As Lydia (Moreno) tells her adult daughter Penelope (Justina Machado) after she breaks down over her failed marriage: “I got you.”

Azealia Banks takes aim at Troye Sivan in series of Tweets
If you’re not with Azealia Banks 100%, you may as well be against her.
And hey, that’s her prerogative.
She doesn’t make it easy to back her all the time — we’ve covered her many beefs time and time again.
Now Australian pop star Troye Sivan finds himself fresh at the center of her displeasure yet again, after giving a wishy-washy answer to Andy Cohen about what he’d say to her if the two happened to be riding an elevator together.
To back it up, Sivan was asked in January if there are any rappers he’d be interested in working with.
“I mean, I was a huge Azealia Banks fan. That all just kind of like went south a little bit. It’s just one of those annoying things where you just want to support [her] so bad, and it just doesn’t work out like that.”
