That maybe one day, San Francisco’s historically gay district will grow up and won’t be as tacky and unfortunately campy as it has been the last decade plus? Continue reading “Rainbows!

calloutqueen-mark-aguhar

Two years ago, I clicked through to a tumblr with the tagline “BLOGGING FOR BROWN GURLS” that my friend had recommended on Facebook.

The next thing I knew I was at the beginning; having spent a couple hours scrolling backwards through hundreds of fascinating, angry, hilarious, soul-baring, gender bending posts. I checked the site a couple more times over the next several months. Continue reading “In memory of MARK AGUHAR 1987-2012”

The Gay Equivalent of “Hipster Racism” is “Queer Racism”

Gay Community defends Shirley Q Liquor

RE: Sex-Positive Racism: Holding Alt Communities Accountable

Yellow Face? Shirley Q. Liquor?

I’m no longer surprised about how ridiculously lazy the gay community is about race – I’ve adjusted my expectations of those in the mainstream LGBT community.

I’ve since moved on to how embarrassingly un-enlightened the queer/indie/drag community has proven themselves to be over and over. The arrogant excuses in this SF Weekly article are just so pathetic and low-level, it leaves me shaking my head in disbelief that a sub-community that prides itself in being more inclusive, open-minded, and enlightened can be so absolutely clueless.

This whole assumption that just because one is gay and has experienced discrimination, that they understand racism, or don’t see color is such bullshit. Understanding race is an on-going process that takes real effort, it’s not something you just get and move on from. Not that they really give a shit anyways…
