Been looking at this blog post on the violent beating & rape of a trans woman rapper and smoldering. Can't remember if it was covered here but just in case you hadn't heard anyway.And I did an angreh post on an 11 year old's suicide over anti-gay bullying, which I think was already covered here but I add more "fuck".And...s'bout it I think.
@sexgenderbody nice idea, imho I think you should work on the design a little bit, so it doesn't appear so amateurish. Sorry if that sounded absolutely horrible. LOL
Sozo yes you can promote your own blog or particular blog post if it is relevant to the queer community and allies.

Take Action by contacting Penn State University for academic equality!Penn State University of Harrisburg has been given the generous gift of $3 million dollars. Given by an anonymous philanthropist, “The philanthropist requested that half the total gift be used for scholarships, particularly for women and minority students,”…The other $1.5 million will be used for high-priority initiatives at the College, all of which ultimately benefit students, as well.” http://php.scripts.psu.edu/dept/iit/hbg/about/News/2009-04/04-08-Gift.phpRequest that these funds, or funds freed up by this gift, are used to create a better atmosphere for GLBTQ students and all sexual minorities by creating a scholarship for working-class / working-poor lesbian and GLBTQ students as well as the expansion of the Women’s Studies program into a program inclusive of GLBTQ Studies. Currently, Penn State and Penn State Harrisburg do not offer a major or minor for GLBTQ students to study and speak from their own cultural perspective.

I missed Sunday by a little bit, but I thought that with all the focus on what the courts are doing for gay marriage, people might be interested in what the courts are doing with adoption.A court case in New York just denied a woman any visitation or custodial rights with her child she helped raise for two and a half years because, even though she had a civil union with her partner, she had never formally adopted the child. And because she was also not the biological mother, she had no standing to request aid from the court.I talk about the case here and explore some of the things coupled queers can do to avoid this situation and ensure their rights are protected:Why Second Parent Adoptions are Vital: How Same-Sex Couples Can Lose Their Kids
