Hannah Gadsby, Tig Notaro & Cameron Esposito Take on Rape Culture

Hannah Gadsby, Tig Notaro & Cameron Esposito Take on Rape Culture | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

Trauma and triumph have always been source material for queer performers. The difference now is that people with power are starting to pay attention: men, heterosexuals, cisgender people, white people—even the holy trinity of cishet white men. At the cutting edge of this cultural reckoning are comedians Hannah Gadsby, Tig Notaro, and Cameron Esposito. All three are masculine of center (MOC) lesbians, comedians, and survivors of sexual assault and/or abuse.

Is Gilbert Baker’s rainbow gay pride flag still radical at 40, or are we over it?

Is Gilbert Baker’s rainbow gay pride flag still radical at 40, or are we over it? | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

In the summer of 1978, Gilbert Baker created a rainbow flag as a decoration for San Francisco's Gay Freedom Day Parade. Now, 40 years later, the late artist and activist's flag has become a global symbol for the gay community - a unifying force far beyond the city. In June 2018, San Francisco is awash in the six colors of the flag's rainbow. In the Castro district and downtown along Market Street, there's a riot of rainbow merchandise in store windows ahead of Sunday's annual parade: T-shirts, feather wings, clip-on tails, tutus and even rainbow-striped rompers.
