"My goal is to be a walking piece of political art every time I show up," Porter told Vogue. "To challenge expectations. What is masculinity? What does that mean? Women show up every day in pants, but the minute a man wears a dress, the seas part."Read More
It's about time that Caitlyn Jenner admits that she has changed her mind about Trump. Speaking before the UK House of Commons this week, Jenner said that the man she once supported has set the transgender community "back 20 years", writes The Daily Beast.
Jenner echoed the same sentiments in a March Newsweek interview in which the former Olympian and transgender advocate acknowledged that the Trump administration "has been the worst ever" on "trans issues."
Speaking as a leader in the trans community, Jenner added "It's going to be hard to change, but we've been through these types of things before and we'll continue to fight it."
The transgender community is not all-in on Jenner and may never be. Delivering the third address on trans issues to the House of Commons, following British actors Idris Elba and Riz Ahmed, the American former Trump supporter was the recipient of awkwardness, frustration and even anger that she was speaking in the first place.
Gay rights activist Edith Windsor, whose landmark Supreme Court case led the US Supreme Court to grant same-sex married couples both federal recognition and a host of federal benefits previously available only to married heterosexuals, died Tuesday in Manhattan at age 88, writes The New York Times.
Her wife Judith Kasen-Windsor, who Windsor married in 2016, confirmed Windsor's death at a Manhattan hospital.
In what is generally regarded as the second most important Supreme Court ruling in America's fight for and against same-sex marriage rights, "the Windsor decision, handed down in 2013, was limited to 13 states and the District of Columbia. But in a more expansive ruling in 2015, in Obergefell v. Hodges and three related cases, the Supreme Court held that same-sex couples had a constitutional right to marry anywhere in the nation, with all the protections and privileges of heterosexual couples. Its historic significance was likened to that of Lawrence v. Texas in 2003, which decriminalized gay sex in the United States."
If you believe the story -- and why should we, frankly -- Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were shocked to read about daddy's Twitter-announced transgender military ban. If they really had no idea that this was going down, then we MUST once and for all resist any and all psyche-soothing hopeful thinking that these kids have any influence on America's president.
