This looks like a really good movie. Based on the Isherwood novel. Anyone here read Isherwood? I have not. Not yet anyway. - DG

The moment a mere numerical superiority by either states or voters in this country proceeds to ignore the needs and desires of the minority, and for their own selfish purpose or advancement, hamper or oppress that minority, or debar them in any way from equal privileges and equal rights—that moment will mark the failure of our constitutional system. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt

NATIONAL TRUST FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual &am...


Every June, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and their many allies join together for Pride – a celebration of life, love and diversity. However, being out and proud shouldn't be confined to just one calendar month a year. Join the National Trust for Historic Preservation as we shine a 365, 24/7 spotlight on not only the many contributions that LGBT preservationists and pioneers have made to our field, but the sometimes-overlooked spaces and places that help tell their fascinating stories.

Review: Ties That Bind: Familial Homophobia and Its Consequences by...

Ties That Bind exposes homophobia as a practice rooted in family structures, from abuse of children to exclusion of adults. This pattern extends to the cherished liberal value of “tolerating” queers as if they were wasps at a family picnic. Author Sarah Schulman boldly declares that visibility is a failed strategy for cultural change. Gay people are more visible than ever, but “the hatred and overt campaigns against us, ranging from commodification to constitutional amendments to dehumanizingly false representations in popular culture, have intensified and become more deliberate.” Schulman’s solution is third-party intervention. If your parents direct you not to bring your lover to a family reunion, it’s time for your sister to demand that your lover be included. If commercial publishers refuse to print lesbian work, straight best-selling authors should protest. Ties That Bind argues that this type of allegiance is far more important than gay access to problematic institutions like marriage. Unfortunately, the gay establishment has abandoned challenges to structural homophobia in favor of the fight for gay marriage, a shift Schulman calls “a sign of spiritual exhaustion . . . the white flag of surrender” to the status quo.

Well, maybe I figured out a way to poll. Please vote! If it works, this will be a convenient way to get some answers.
