5 Queer Musicians Who Rocked SXSW This Year  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
5 Queer Musicians Who Rocked SXSW This Year So you couldn’t make it to South by Southwest this year? Don’t worry about it.

Normally, you could spend time looking up some of the amazing queer musicians who played throughout the festival — but we’ve even done that for you, too. Check ’em out below, and then go grab their songs and listen to them over and over ...

VIDEO: Watch A Drag Queen Being Birthed  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
VIDEO: Watch A Drag Queen Being Birthed Why we’re covering this: Uh, we’re pretty sure this one’s a gimme. For those of us who have never done drag, the process can be a little mystifying and magical. Sure, we can just watch RuPaul’s Drag Race, but that’s not quite the same as actually doing it. That’s why we love this video starring Michael Alexander (of The Sound’s new gender-related YouTube channel Blender) and Saya Naomi, where Saya agrees to be Michael’s drag mother: But this short documentary is more than that — it’s an exploration of drag culture and ...

INTERVIEW: Will Cannabis Prohibition End In Our Lifetime?  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
INTERVIEW: Will Cannabis Prohibition End In Our Lifetime? Why we’re covering this: It’s pretty clear that the War On Drugs hasn’t worked; we want to support people working for real solutions. Elizabeth Conway, Principal, Gide LLC With marijuana being legalized for medical use in many states, and recreational use in Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Alaska, we’re beginning to see a sea change in how marijuana is seen. No longer the domain of Reefer Madness, people are beginning to see that cannabis can be very useful for pain management — and safer than other legal vices like alcohol to boot. We ...

Brad Paisley Comes Out Against Bathroom Bills, Trans People  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Brad Paisley Comes Out Against Bathroom Bills, Trans People Why we’re covering this: We love country music, and we love when people call out HB2, but this ain’t the way to do it. This week, country superstar Brad Paisley appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and addressed everyone’s favorite topic, North Carolina’s House Bill 2 and other idiotic bathroom bills like it. Good news: He thinks the bathroom bills are foolish nonsense! Bad news: He thought this was the best way to get that across: .@BradPaisley makes the transgender bathroom debate musical…https://t.co/nEDbZ7k3TK — Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) May 25, ...

INTERVIEW: The Fight To End Modern Slavery Worldwide  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
INTERVIEW: The Fight To End Modern Slavery Worldwide Why we’re covering this: No one should live in slavery — and it’s important to do all we can to put an end to the awful practice. Terry FitzPatrick, Communications Director, Free The Slaves Slavery is the most heinous scourge of our civilization. The organization Free The Slaves put on an outstanding panel at this year’s South By Southwest; for all the people who couldn’t make it to Austin this year, we sat down with spokesperson Terry FitzPatrick, the communications director of Free The Slaves, and asked him what modern slavery looks like.

Say Her Name: Three Murdered Transwomen You Should Know  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Say Her Name: Three Murdered Transwomen You Should Know Why we’re covering this: Trans rights are the new battlefield for LGBTQ activism, and unfortunately, many trans people have lost their lives due to this struggle.  Today, the news has come out that a Pakistani trans activist, Alesha, died from being refused treatment for her gunshot wounds. This was the third time she’d been shot. // Unfortunately, news of transgender women being murdered is common. Last year, in the United States, there were 21 reported murders; this year so far, there have been twelve reported murders. We thought we’d honor Alesha by sharing the ...

Hugo-Nominated Chuck Tingle Is The Hero We Need  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog

And, hey, who doesn’t love Chuck Tingle? Hugo nominee “Space Raptor Butt Invasion” Last year, a group of GamerGaters led by white nationalist Vox Day calling themselves the Sad Puppies gamed the Hugo Awards to nominate anti-feminist works. The Hugos are one of the most prestigious awards for Science Fiction; past winners have included Philip K. Dick, Ursula K. LeGuin and China Miéville. Fortunately, the results for last ...

Ex-San Diego Padres DJ Explains Gay Men’s Chorus Mistake  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Ex-San Diego Padres DJ Explains Gay Men’s Chorus Mistake Why we’re covering this: The mistreatment of the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus this weekend was shocking — however, at least one aspect of it has an explanation. The San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus made national news this week when the San Diego Padres asked them to perform the national anthem only to be jeered at while a recording of a female singer played over the sound system. The Padres’ apology was pretty weaksauce (and didn’t address the whole “inviting them to sing if they bought tickets for everyone” thing): Statement from the ...

Bill Cosby Tried to Ruin Musician Janis Ian for Same-Sex Cuddling  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Bill Cosby Tried to Ruin Musician Janis Ian for Same-Sex Cuddling Why we’re covering this: With the news today that Bill Cosby will finally face trial over a 2004 rape accusation, we thought we’d share this piece as a reminder that Cosby’s not a nice person. Musician Janis Ian took to Facebook to tell the world that Bill Cosby once tried to ruin her career for alleged lesbianism (which, it turns out, was really just platonic cuddling with a female friend). For you Millennials: Janis Ian is a singer-songwriter who became immensely popular in the 1960s and 1970s. One of ...

Activists, Police Fend Off Counter-Protestors At Moldova’s First-Ever LGBT March of Solidarity  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Activists, Police Fend Off Counter-Protestors At Moldova’s First-Ever LGBT March of Solidarity Yesterday, activists held its first-ever “LGBT March of solidarity” in Moldova’s capitol of Chisinau. Moldova is a predominantly Orthodox Christian, east European country that’s also the poorest in Europe. According to a media report relayed to Unicorn Booty by march attendee, Arnaud Gauthier-Fawas — European Coordinator of Proud Lebanon and International Relations coordinator at Inter-LGBT — the march was attended by between 300 to 400 people, both LGBT people and allies from Moldova and abroad. The march lasted for 15 to 20 minutes (about five city blocks) before police ...

Olympics Prepares For Onslaught Of Athletic Sex At Rio Summer Games  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Olympics Prepares For Onslaught Of Athletic Sex At Rio Summer Games Why we’re covering this: We like sex, sports and preventing the spread of STIs and HIV. We like them so much, that if they combined all three into an Olympic event, we’d watch the hell out of it. It’s a widely known fact that international athletes hook-up like crazy at the Olympics; the very thought of all those tight, muscular bodies writhing in  humping sessions gets us downright musky. Ahem… We’re not the only ones thinking about all that athletic sex. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is apparently thinking about it ...

Major League Baseball Team Humiliates Gay Men’s Chorus  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Major League Baseball Team Humiliates Gay Men’s Chorus Why we’re covering this: Despite the passage of nationwide marriage equality, LGBT people still get treated like second-class citizens, even when they’re guests of honor. The sports world especially has deeply rooted homophobia. Covering incidents like this is part of chipping away at that homophobia while holding organizations accountable for their poor treatment of LGBT folks. On Harvey Milk Day (Sunday, May 22), the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus (SDGMC) went to sing the national anthem at the San Diego Padres’ Out At The Park night at Petco ...

A Gay Man’s Defense of Azealia Banks’ Right to Say “Faggot”  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
A Gay Man’s Defense of Azealia Banks’ Right to Say “Faggot” Why we’re covering this: Though freedom of speech primarily refers to unconstitutional government infringement on public expression, it can also refer to the risks people take when speaking their minds. “Faggot” especially is a historically-charged slur, but it’s one still in use by many gay and non-gay people. We want to examine its recent use in a public celebrity feud and consider what, if anything, it meant outside of its intent to harm. Earlier this month, Azealia Banks — the twenty-something New York-based singer and electronic hip hop artist known ...

What Will HIV Reform Look Like Under Clinton?  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
What Will HIV Reform Look Like Under Clinton? After an alarming mis-step in which she praised the Reagans for helping people with AIDS, Hillary Clinton is bouncing back with bold plans to fight stigma and criminalization of HIV. Ronald Reagan, of course, was in large part responsible for the worst of the epidemic. He refused to acknowledge the disease, or to take action to stop its spread. For her part, Nancy Reagan refused to aid family friend Rock Hudson as HIV-related illness took its toll on his body. Clinton’s approach stands in sharp contrast to the worst monsters ...

I Just Watched Adventures In Babysitting For The First Time Ever  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
I Just Watched Adventures In Babysitting For The First Time Ever The image every ’80s kid remembers from thousands of video store trips. Yeah, yeah, I know, every ’80s kid loves the line “Don’t fuck with the babysitter.” But for some weird reason, we didn’t really do contemporary movies when I was growing up, so the staples of my peers’ media diet were all absent from my childhood, and that includes the 1987 movie Adventures in Babysitting, possibly one of the most important movies ever made for actual babysitters who are now of an age where they hire babysitters of their own. I mentioned recently that I’d ...

FILM SCHOOL: Unlocking the Lesbian Noir in David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” Why we’re covering this: As fans of LGBTQ film, we wanted to research some of our all-time favorites to make you an expert next time you view ’em. For two and a half years, I’ve run a monthly LGBT film series at the Texas Theatre called CinéWilde, and before each film we chat about its historical background to help enhance the viewing experience for new and old viewers alike. This month, we showed David Lynch’s stylish 2001 film Mulholland Drive, a lesbian neo-noir with plenty of twists, turns and dangerous curves. This “Film School” viewing guide ...

These Cocksuckin’ Tears: An Interview With Pat Haggerty, The First Openly Gay Country Singer  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
These Cocksuckin’ Tears: An Interview With Pat Haggerty, The First Openly Gay Country Singer Long before the current crop of openly queer musicians were comfortable declaring themselves to the world — and before many of them were born — Pat Haggerty was singing gay country music on the album Lavender Country. The songs, including the amazingly-titled “Cryin’ These Cocksucking Tears,” was forgotten for years until it was recently rediscovered by music buffs. Now, the 1972 project has found a new life, and Pat is once more finding himself performing songs that were revolutionary over 40 years ago. A new documentary short examines Pat’s work, ...

Bathroom Transphobe Kept Stepdaughter Captive in Basement  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Bathroom Transphobe Kept Stepdaughter Captive in Basement A man who recently criticized Target’s trans-friendly bathroom policies as dangerous to children has been accused of holding his 13 year-old stepdaughter captive in a basement for a year. Recently, an Ohio man named Esten Ciboro posted this bit of transphobic propaganda on his Facebook page: It’s a standard bit of far-right bigotry accusing retail chain Target of “putting men in girls’ bathrooms” and “support[ing]queerism and confusion” for enacting trans-friendly bathroom policies in its stores. Esten Ciboro (with his dad Timothy Ciboro) made the transphobic post on May 4. About two weeks later, the 13 year-old ...
