Gender bending roles among the Oscar nominees

Oh Oscar! Being 30, I have been able to witness our generation of queers and queer friendly people evolve and accomplish. It is amazing how far Hollywood has come.

Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association’ winners for the best in film and television of 2011

Weekend took home a good bulk of the awards/nominations including Best Picture

Results from the first annual Stumped Awards

Creepy Stumped award statues. Though I suppose the faceless Oscar is pretty creepy too.

Forgive Me Father at Pivot – I have no trouble reconciling my hedontistic, panganisitc spiritual desires with my homosexual ones, but many of those who hold more subdued beliefs do. This night is for them. There’s quite a movement incorporating faith with gay liberation and this is just the function to explore that.

The Cafeteria – Vendetta is a small […]

Pride Northwest seeks nominations for 2011 Awards and Honorifics

Here’s a chance to spotlight the queers in our community who you think deserve attention and praise. Think certain folks or organizations aren’t represented in the mainstream gay community. Here’s a small chance to change that as Pride Northwest is calling upon the community to submit nominations for Awards and Honorifics for Pride 2011.

They seek nominations for the following:
