For Some Black People, The Term 'Latinx' Is Another Form of Erasure 

 

A conversation-shifting hashtag #LatinidadIsCancelled, started by Afro-Indigenous (Zapotec) writer Alan Pelaez Lopez, outlines just how mestizx, white-centering, anti-Black, anti-Indigenous, and anti-queer the culture remains. (This was the first of a few examinations of anti-Blackness and Latinidad as they arose in popular culture, and the one which summed it up most cohesively.) This has prompted scholars, activists, and everyday Afro-Latinx individuals to reconsider their use of the word Latinx, as well as the "Afro-" or "Black" label placed before it, and whether ethnicity itself is enough to identify with Latinidad (a term used to describe the “shared culture” of Latinxs).

“For those who embrace Latinidad, it's a double-edged sword,” said Zaire Dinzey-Flores, a member of Black Latinas Know Collective and an associate professor of Latino and Caribbean Studies and Sociology at Rutgers University. “For those who don't fit the image that has been boosted by this term [Latinx] and this concept [of Latinidad], it almost works as a violent term… toward those of us—and I’ll say us because I’ll include myself in that—who cannot exist outside of the violence of even the production of Latin America.”

United Airlines fills NFL, MLB flights with ‘young, white, blond’ female crew: suit 

 

Maybe they should change their slogan to “Fly the Friendly — and very white — Skies.”

United Airlines packs its planes with young, white, blond, blue-eyed female crew — all chosen for their “sexual allure” — whenever the National Football League and Major League Baseball take charter flights, a new lawsuit alleges.

Meanwhile, flight attendants who are too old and too dark are barred from the plum routes, according to Bloomberg News, which reported the suit on Saturday.

Martina Navratilova ‘signs letter’ by anti-trans group supporting Idaho’s sickening law banning trans girls from sports 

 

The letter rails against “bullying tactics” and praises Idaho for “preserving fair competition for women and girls”.

It goes on to call for “women’s sports [to] be protected for biological females”, suggesting trans women and girls could compete within a separate category.

Its more than 300 signatories were mostly redacted, however Navratilova’s name was reportedly first on the list, according to a copy of the letter obtained by OutSports.

One Million Moms has launched a boycott against “all things Hallmark” after the network dared to acknowledge the existence of LGBT+ people in its holiday movies. 

 

On July 15 the Hallmark Channel announced 18 new movies for the festive season, and while none of them had LGBT+ main characters, the channel promised that more queer storylines, characters and actors would be on the way.

One Million Moms responded by declaring an oh-so-predictable boycott of literally everything produced by Hallmark, including the TV channel, wrapping paper, greetings cards and Christmas ornaments.

Beware Those Who Would Reduce America's Multicolor Landscape to Black and White / Opinion 

 

It's easy to shrug off the story of the city of Seattle's efforts last month to address racism as just another quirky anomaly in these unsettled times.

But Americans do so at our peril.

The City's Office of Civil Rights gathered white employees for a mandatory session entitled "Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness." A researcher who reviewed the curriculum noted that the instructor taught that all "white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their [own] 'humanity' and [has] caused 'harm and violence' to people of color."

"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character," so said Rev. King.

That's so 20th century.

Being born white is the woke generation's original sin. The list of demands to get out of white, racist purgatory are quite daunting:

Forget truth. It doesn't count; feelings do.

A person's personal dreams must make way for groupthink.

History must be erased to be replaced by authentic socialists like Karl Marx.

Collective memory must take a knee to intersectionality—connecting dots by fiat not fact.

Traditional morality—a racist vestige best forgotten by the old and then unlearned by the young.

Police? Defund them.

Law and order— a vicious concept leveraged to enslave people of color

Sports Illustrated Model Valentina Sampaio Calls Attention to Violence Against Trans Women 

 

Valentina Sampaio made headlines on Friday when Sports Illustrated announced that she would be featured in this year’s Swimsuit Issue, making her the first trans model to appear in the publication’s iconic annual installment—at least the first one that we know of! In case you’re not aware, trans women have been building successful modeling careers without publicly disclosing their transness since before Sports Illustrated published its first Swimsuit Issue in 1964, though many of those models—like April Ashley, Tracey Norman (a.k.a., Tracey Africa), and Caroline Cossey—had their careers totally derailed after they were outed by the press.

Seattle Schools to Include LGBTQ+ In Curriculum 

 

The Seattle Public School District has taken a big step to creating an inclusive and affirming environment for all students. The district recently passed a resolution calling for LGBTQ+ affirming curriculum and gender neutral restroom facilities.

"We are the first in Washington to mandate this for our curriculum," Zachary DeWolf, Seattle School Board President, tells Out. "Young people, LGBTQIA+ or not, deserve to see how broad and dynamic American history—which is inclusive of LGBTQIA+ history—truly is. Requiring LGBTQIA+ inclusive curriculum in Seattle Public Schools will positively impact our region today and seven generations into the future."

Black Exotic Dancers Demand Better Treatment With ‘Stripper Strike’ 

 

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, when strip clubs across the country were shuttering and dancers found themselves abruptly out of work, the Portland, Oregon strip club the Lucky Devil Lounge started a food-delivery service called Boober Eats in order to provide some of its employees work. The concept went viral (and was, in fact, covered by this publication), but local black dancers noticed something odd: its Instagram featured relatively few black dancers.

This wasn’t surprising to some black dancers in Portland, like Cat Hollis and Brianna Cistrunk, who say the club has a reputation for almost exclusively hiring white dancers. “They say they’re a ‘rock ‘n roll club’ [which means] they only hire a certain aesthetic,” Cistrunk says. “It’s an unspoken thing but it’s very well-known among most girls.” This perception was magnified a few weeks later, following the death of George Floyd, when the club posted a (now-deleted) photo on Instagram of #BlackLivesMatter flags festooning the stage. “There was a huge argument that happened in the comments,” says Hollis. She commented: “There are more #BlackLivesMatter signs than there have ever been black butts on that stage.” (Shon Boulden, owner of the Lucky Devil Lounge, tells Rolling Stone the controversy stemmed from “a lot of misconceptions of how our club operates,” though he acknowledged that only two or three of the club’s 30 dancers are black.”If there ever was the idea that we weren’t open to hiring all ethnicities, I guess I’d just want say, yes of course we do,” he says. “In our hiring, maybe it didn’t look like we were.”)

How Did Four Young Black Boys Become Hollywood Stars During the Height of Jim Crow? 

 

As it turns out, Sunshine Sammy was a race man. Farina and Stymie too, and even Buckwheat for a minute or so.

This may be hard to fathom, considering the designation was generally applied, back around the '20s, to men who exemplified the most righteous and upstanding attributes of black people, and advocated for fair and dignified treatment. It’s also hard to fathom because, at the time, they were just young black boys.

But they were young black boys with starring roles in Hollywood, and among the most popular performers of their time. There weren’t very many blacks of any age getting any sort of featured screen time back then, at least not in roles that didn’t demean the race. Thus, these young people were heralded in the black press, and even by the NAACP, as some of the leading exemplars of blackness, well before any of them were old enough to drive.

Sunshine Sammy, Farina, Stymie and Buckwheat were the principal black characters throughout the 20-year run of the Our Gang film series. The black community treated them (respectively, Ernie Morrison, Allen Hoskins, Matthew Beard and Billie Thomas) like rock stars. But their lives were much more complicated than the movie roles ever let on. Their regard within the black community would be transformed decades later, as the Our Gang franchise lived on years after its heyday.

Anti-LGBT+ evangelist Franklin Graham says the right to fire people for being LGBT+ is a ‘freedom our nation was founded on’ 

 

In a landmark six-to-three ruling on Monday (June 15), the court affirmed that LGBT+ people are entitled to protection from employment discrimination based on their sexual orientation and gender identity under Title VII, an existing sex-based civil rights law.

Naturally, the decision has not gone down well with the anti-LGBT+ evangelical lobby, who have spent much of the past four years plotting to stack the court with conservatives in order to roll back the tide on queer rights.

To add insult to injury, the court’s opinion was penned by justice Neil Gorsuch, a Trump appointee who sided with the liberal justices.

Franklin Graham is fuming that businesses can’t fire people for being gay anymore.

Without empathy the term ‘community’ is redundant 

 

This idea of belonging and imagined private utopias were characterised in the subvertive explorations of the mid-twentieth century works of David Hockney’s pictorial escapes in Domestic Scene (1963), retreats in his Cavafey poetry inspired The Beginning (1966), or differently in a more sexually liberating yet overtly violent esoteric excess William Borough’s novel Wild Boys (1971). However courageous in their time for avocation for same sex relations, in retrospect collectively they portray queer visibility as lacking in outward empathy and visibility for others. This has become confounded.

Such manifestos for a vision for a supposed utopia doesn’t widen for the inclusion for lesbians, transgender and BAME individuals. Also how does their context fit within the queer landscape of today given the lack of presence for others, especially where historically queer spaces and our representation are largely tailored and dominated by cis white gay men. This hasn’t largely been questioned to the extent till now in which Rosie Hastings and Hannah Quinlan’s practice observes and rightly exposes.

Next season of Harley Quinn will explore her romance with Poison Ivy 

 

Supervillain / anti-hero Harley Quinn is a fan favourite in the LGBTQ community, and not least for her relationship with fellow villain Poison Ivy. And although the cartoon series on the DC Universe streaming service has hinted at their relationship, it hasn’t been explicit with it.

But in the second season, which began airing on Friday (3 April), this is set to change, with a small moment in the trailer showing Harley and Ivy briefly holding hands.

And speaking to Metro, the show’s showrunner, Patrick Schumacker has confirmed that this relationship will be explored. “It will develop more, and it’s definitely going to evolve into, I think, what a lot of people are hoping it will,” he explained.

Campuses shutter for coronavirus, leaving some LGBTQ students with nowhere to go 

 

When she heard that her university campus would be shutting down after spring break due to the coronavirus pandemic, Alexis feared her life could fall apart.

She wasn’t able to afford campus housing this semester and is living instead in a nearby homeless shelter. But she depended on her school’s health and fitness center for daily showers and her school’s library for quiet study time.

“My whole life revolves around the university, and the university is closed,” said Alexis, a 34-year-old trans woman and student at the University of Eastern Michigan. (A university spokesperson told Vox that campus dining halls are still open for “grab and go” meals in accordance with a Monday order from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer; however, other services like the rec center are closed.)

When her school decided to shift to online classes, which meant finding a public space to study and attend classes, she knew that wouldn’t be possible in the shelter. She also knew that other public spaces would likely soon close to promote social distancing. She worried she may have to move back home with her father, who doesn’t support her transition and doesn’t use her name or correct pronouns.

“My relationship with my parents is not good, particularly my dad,” Alexis said. “My parents in general are just not very accepting of me, but [being] trans is kinda like the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
