“Got my back?” Check one: Y / N

There is no easy way to convey how on our guard or walking on eggshells some people of color (especially QPoC) are in predominantly white spaces.

DC Pride 2015: Out/Spoken

Capital Pride is just around the corner, and in case you didn’t know, it’s not just all about the parade and festival (and parties)–even though it can sometimes seem that way. If you’d rather tone up your mind rather than...

42: ***Spotless

After almost–but not quite–20 years in DC, I sometimes think it would be nice if I could opt for a form of selective amnesia. I never watched “Eternal Sunshine” but I more or less guessed the plot and I was...

pride: feel the rainbow

This is more for the gay geeks out there. I mean the proper gay nerds, not the ones who lately think it’s “cool” to call themselves nerds because they really liked Firefly or The Big Bang Theory.* It isn’t directly...

pride: Army on DADT

Not sure how I hadn’t noticed this before, but the Army actually has a webpage devoted to the details of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) and its repeal…

pride: all ages

Continuing on the Pride trend comes a great announcement from AARP: AARP today announced the launch of a new online Web portal—www.aarp.org/pride—dedicated to serving older lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans. The organization’s first online home base for the...

pride: to the girl…

I typically don’t do very much for Pride in DC anymore, but with it coming up next weekend in DC, this post from a best friend, beautiful person and more than occasionally a myopic little twit* was well-timed: I know...

theatre: Looped at the Lincoln

I can usually count the number of plays I see each year on one finger, but I’m starting to think it’s time to change that. I saw Arena Stage’s “Looped” last night at the Lincoln Theatre with my friend Greg...

ads: wine bar or sex dungeon?

Saw this ad for Veritas Wine Bar in today’s Express and I couldn’t help but wonder if it was intended for next month’s Pride publications. Or has come out of the closet finally reached the state of general cultural usage?...

metro: Feel the Prid!

Before heading out to meet the fellas yesterday, I checked in with WMATA’s Trip Planner as I always do.* Just before putting in my search query, I saw this banner ad on the page. I’ve probably seen it in years...

Paraskavedekatriaphobes, ahoy!

I was getting my cereal and milk this morning and the cashier says, “Have a blessed day!” to which I respond, “Happy Friday the 13th!” I’ve discussed with Christopher that one never really knows what to say in response to...

Just let your Soul Glo…

A little joke from Sluggy Freelance that wouldn’t have felt like a joke a few months back. It’s sort of weird to not get any mail and that my daily number of phone calls has dropped about 99%, but if...

calm after the storm

We had a slightly, but not too, empty office yesterday after the results of the storm. I knew of places without power and school closings, but overall it seems like there wasn’t anything too severe. Had a little blogger meet-up...

By the time the buzz was wearing off…

This is why socialized nerds and geeks have an off-switch. I don’t follow many printed comic strips regularly, only seeing the ones in Express, but today’s Pooch Cafe made me LOL, if you will, on the train. Not that I...
