Chelsea Handler Plays Gay Face for Will and Grace
Well, here’s one more reason not to watch the Will and Grace reboot. I guess they couldn’t find a lesbian actress to play the part, so they took on a straight woman who’s been under fire for homophobic tweets.
Here’s the rest. And here’s a link to something where Chelsea Handler was under fire for homophobic tweets.
Now let me get this right. Roseanne Barr Tweets something racist and she loses everything, and rightly so. But Chelsea Handler Tweets homophobic and she gets to play a lesbian on Will and Grace. Got it.
Retirement Community Rejects Married Lesbian Couple
Tony and I have always had a lot of older friends, and we’ve seen them deal with this sort of thing. It’s almost like being forced back into the closet when you’re in your 80s. We’ve seen our friends live happy lives in the LGBT community here in New Hope, only to wind up in heteronormative retirement communities where they have to watch everything they say or do. And that’s a fact. A friend of ours recently moved to one of these places. In other words, you have to stop being gay to survive in a heteronormative “family” environment like this otherwise you’ll deal with consequences. That’s a sad way to end up for any gay person, especially if you’ve lived your entire life openly gay.
In any event, this happened to a couple of married gay women.
Mary Walsh, 72, and Bev Nance, 68, were just looking for a new home where they could be surrounded by friends and could get some extra care if needed. But when they tried to become residents at the St. Louis-area Friendship Village senior living community, they were turned away because they’re married.
Here’s the rest. And don’t think this can only happen in places like St. Louis. It can happen anywhere. This is why we’re all going to have to start thinking about more LGBT friendly retirement communities.
Baltimore Leather Bar Shutters For Good
Here’s another causality in the gay bar wars. But this time it’s a little different. This is about conflict of interest and not about competition with the Internet.
“It is our sincere belief that the [owners are] actively manipulating the entire situation in hopes that they can void the lease and licensing agreements, thereby taking possession of all the assets of 4 Crazy Guys, LLC, not the least of which is nearly $600,000 worth of improvements to their building paid for by [us.]”
You can read the entire statement, here. They mention there are still other venues in Baltimore.
