Pennsylvania State Rep, Brian SimsThis should’ve been Bear Week in Provincetown, but the Coronavirus put a stop to that this year. Brian Sims, Pennsylvania 182 District State Representative from Philadelphia, has been a fixture at Bear Week for years, so I thought he would make for  the perfect mancandy monday post this week.

The History Project’s Queer fiascos

Have you lived through a queer fiasco? Did an ex show up somewhere they shouldn’t have, like next to you on a Pride float? Did you get the wrong address to the best party of the decade? Did you trip and fall off the stage of your favorite gay bar in front of your crush?

There are so many stories to tell so the History Project has teamed up with  SpeakOUT Boston and they are brewing up an online storytelling event and fundraiser to relive and remember LGBTQ+ stories. The theme is “Queer Fiascos” which can be interpreted in multiple ways. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 24 at 7:00 p.m. and get your tickets here!

Do you have a story you’d like to share? Email Joan from The History Project at info@historyproject.org or Ellyn from SpeakOUT Boston at (ellyn@speakoutboston.org) for more details. 

All proceeds generated via Eventbrite will support SpeakOUT Boston and The History Project

US Supreme Court rules Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects LGBTQ workers

Affordable Care Act

Did you know that prior to the Supreme Court’s ruling it was legal to fire someone because they are gay or transgender in 28 states? Well no more… Earlier today the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) surprised pretty much everyone when conservatives Chief Justice John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch joined the court’s four liberal justices in the majority, 6 to 3 vote, affirming the language of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination, applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

As a result of this ruling, there are potential implications for addressing discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity and seeking to have this applied to other Federal civil rights legislation.  According to CNN, this ruling may be as significant as the Court’s 2015 ruling, recognizing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage. You can read more about the ruling and the implication, here.

Happy Pride Boston

This year Boston Pride celebrations have been cancelled and the parties, events and fundraisers not to mention the massive parade and block parties will not happen, but that doesn’t mean that Pride is cancelled. Walking through the South End in Boston it makes me happy  to see so many Pride flags, because to borrow a few lines from a favorite book of mine,

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!
‘Maybe Christmas,’ he thought, ‘doesn’t come from a store.’ “

While I appreciate that corporate America wants to show their support and are very visible during Pride Week, that  is not what the celebration is all about and this year (what would’ve been the 50th anniversary of Boston Pride), maybe it would be good if we all stopped to think about why Pride remains relevant.

Celebrate Pride in your own way. Be proud. Speak up for our community and for all marginalized communities, because we are stronger together.

Happy Pride
