So my university held a Gender Bending Day today and I decided to go hyper femme. I never wear dresses or heels, so I thought I would explore my femininity in a way that I very rarely do.

EROS is proud to support its president by immortalizing her forever on Tumblr in “Hyper Femme”.

So I guess this is a call to action: The LG and T community need to make more of an effort to support the B’s among us. Being bisexual doesn’t mean being selfish or sitting on the fence, it means being brave enough to live in the gray space.

And though I could write a whole other piece just about the stereotypes associated with bisexuality — like that bisexual people can’t be monogamous, or that they are just “confused” — coming out as bisexual means saying, “I don’t care if you think I’m just a promiscuous perv and I don’t care if you think it’s a phase and I don’t care if you don’t accept me as part of the gay community, this is who I am.” We need to provide a loving environment for our bisexual brothers and sisters and make them welcome among us. And maybe we need to learn to look at ourselves and accept some gray in our lives, too.

Fire is a film by Deepa Mehta that was one of the first mainstream films in India to explicitly show homosexual relations. Starring Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das, the film is about two characters, Radha and Sita, who are married and eventually fall in love with each other. Radha, the older woman, remains bound by tradition while Sita refuses to accept misfortune and wishes to break free. (via Wikipedia and imdb)
For the trailer, click here.

EROS movie night? Or a must-see on your own. It’s not on Netflix instant watch though you can get it through the mail.

The Peculiar Kind is a web series that candidly explores the lives and experiences of queer women of color with eye-opening and unscripted conversations.  Episode one of The Peculiar Kind explores “Party Etiquette” i.e. Jealousy, Flirting, One Night Stands, Using Protection, Getting Home Safely, & Hate Crimes.  Included in this episode are “OUR NEWS”, a segment brought to you by Kimberley McLeod (ELIXER.com) and The Peculiar Kind Spotlight Presents which features Kimmie David (RightRides.org). The Peculiar Kind can be viewed on  www.youtube.com/ThePeculiarKind or www.ThePeculiarKind.com/episodes.

Totally date-able, smart-ass queers alert, yall.

Super shallow moment of the day: after watching this for about 2 seconds, I was like “Every person in this video is a total babe!!”. 

Language and content NSFW.

"They’ve been chasing us for years. We’re going to chase them back!"

So there is this website, http://gayhomophobe.com/, that tracks homophobic politicians that turn out to be gay or engage in same-sex sexual behavior. The details of their public outing can be found on the website. What’s encouraging is that some have turned around completely and now work for gay equality.

There’s also a documentary about this idea: http://outragethemovie.com/.

This idea makes me feel a little bit queasy, but then my brain tells me that if you’re aggressively voting to take away LGB people’s rights and dignity, then it is just to be outed as a hypocrite.

We call it “Gay Walmart”

Catering mainly to the gay male crowd, Out of Bounds is a tiny, happy little shop not too far from campus, selling flags, shirts, bumper stickers, novelties, DVDS and other NSFW goods.

They do free HIV tests once a week, from what I gather from their adverts.

EROS calls it “Gay Walmart”. My rainbow flag I am using as a curtain is from their shop!

They are behind an Enterprise Rent-A-Car and thus are a little hidden from the road.

This shit is totally fabulous. Love the bendy-ness of ties, booty shorts, high heels and dress shirts.

Not feeling very comfortable with the use of the T-word typically used as a slur against trans* people in the lyrics, however.

Words that Hurt poster for the UC Davis Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center.  Displayed for Principles of Community week in the Memorial Union until  March 14th, 2011.

I’ll add the T-word here that is used as a slur against trans* people. 

"People can reclaim these words for themselves as a form of empowerment. This is a personal decision. Don’t reclaim words on behalf of others." <- THIS.
