New Gay TV Show is As Gay as Lesbian Porn

While we’re on the subject of Gaza, Ferguson and killing African babies every time we waste water for ALS, I figured it was time to discuss something equally as emotive and controversial, the fall television line-up. There are, as per usual, lots of new programs pixelating our screens this fall. […]

The Fosters: Someone’s Little Sister

The finale hardly finalized anything, which of course is the point of a finale – kind of like when literally means figuratively. Callie shows up at Rita’s place, which is a shambles. Chip bag, a pizza box, and general clutter cover the coffee table in her sad living room. Callie […]

The Fosters: The Longest Day

This episode is called The Longest Day, and I really felt it. That’s either excellent television making or really painful television making. I’ll let you be the judge. Lena is home, and baby Frankie is but a distant memory as Jesus bangs on the bathroom door and Jude and Callie get […]

Teddy Grahams and the homosexual agenda

I love happy, smiling families but what I love more is seeing an ad that expands our vision of the archetypal American family. I don’t need families like mine to be seen as wholesome but I do need them to be seen.

Eating Out with the French

It’s a simple story of first love. Girl meets boy. Girl is disenchanted. Girl meets girl. Girl goes down on girl—many, many times. Girl loses girl. Simple in some respects, perhaps, but the experience of Blue is chockfull of the delicious complexity of awakening, first love, first loss, coming of […]
