RuPaul To Host the Most Hetero TV Show Ever: Saturday Night Live, Gay Panic Defense Banned In New Jersey, Ryan Field Books

RuPaul To Host the Most Hetero TV Show Ever: Saturday Night Live

For years SNL has been talked about for being homophobic in that passive aggressive way where anything gay is simply ignored. There are other examples of homophobia and SNL with a simple google search. For one thing, they have praised and applauded Alec Baldwin, a man who made notoriously anti-gay remarks in public a few years ago. Frankly, I never found SNL entertaining because it’s always been geared toward a straight mainstream audience and I couldn’t relate to it.

There’s even been a discussion about the lack of gay representation. 

The heated discussion surrounding “Saturday Night Live” and its inclusion (or lack thereof) of gay cast members rages on, because — of course — Alec Baldwin is Tweeting.

With that said, they seem to be trying to change their image, and it only took about 45 years. Next month RuPaul will actually be hosting SNL and the news is just starting to make headlines. Of course I think that’s wonderful, and I hope it brings more attention to RuPaul’s Netflix series, AJ and the Queen. I’ve posted about how much a love that series several times and I hope more people check it out.

You can read more about this, here. I have no idea if RuPaul will be performing in drag, or as themselves.

Gay Panic Defense Banned In New Jersey

This is good to read. For anyone who doesn’t know, the gay panic defense is something twisted straight people have used in the past in order to justify a hate crime against someone gay. Wiki gives a good example in more detail.  

The ‘gay panic’ defense – by which someone accused of a murder could claim the sexuality or gender identity of their victim was partly to blame for their actions – has been made illegal in New Jersey.

I only live a mile from the New Jersey state line and I spend a lot of time there. So of course I think this is wonderful. This gay panic defense nonsense they’ve been getting away with for years should be banned everywhere.

Here’s a link to more. They go into more detail about what exactly this all means.

What readers are saying about…

Sleepless in San Franciso

 Reader Reviews:
“The extras made the story: the Labrador retriever, the ten year old son, the best friend, and even the new house needing renovation. Never imagined that the son had been raised by two Dads.”
“THIS TITLE sucked me right the heck in. I had my fingers, toes, and ankles crossed (not my eyes because I was desperate to read) that I would get the chance to review this book. I may or may not have breathed a literal sigh of relief when it arrived on my Kindle.”
“Gender bendy romance classic retelling”
Written by Lambda-Award winning author Ryan Field, A Starr Is Born is a queer retelling of an old rags to riches trope that’s been reinterpreted many times, but this time it’s totally different with gay main characters, a gay love story, and a gay male point of view. It’s partly a light-hearted parody and partly sarcasm. It’s also highly erotic and charged with authentic, emotional gay male romance.

From the day they meet for the first time until the day their lives change forever, Harrison Parker and Morton Starr were destined for greatness—and each other. A Starr is Born follows the paths of handsome, badly-behaving rock star Harrison Parker and sexy gender-bending performer Morton Starr, who is just starting his career.

Morton is so madly in love with his husband, Harrison, he’ll do anything to please him, including overlooking all his self-destructive issues. However, as openly gay Morton gains more fame and success in the mainstream with his popular gay love songs and his unique gender-bending image, and Harrison continues to slide downhill, there comes a point where everything has to change. And when that climax finally happens, Morton isn’t certain about anything in his future or his marriage.
