It’s already the third Friday of 2015! Have you stopped typing “2014” yet? I’ve been sick most of the week. Almost all of my time has gone to either sleeping or working. So you’ll notice that this week’s list of links is a bit shorter than usual.

Anyway, here is a collection of news and other things that I ran across over the course of the week which struck me as worthy of being shared:

Pastor’s Gay Brother ‘Frustrated That NPR Made This A News Story’.

Supreme Court faced gay rights decision in 1958 over ‘obscene’ magazine. A nice story of another mostly forgotten stepping stone in the gay rights movement.

Why it’s time to pull the plug on the worst awards show in Hollywood. “Broadcasting transphobia under the guise of punching up is still punching down.”

“Excommunicated Any Day”: The Real Reality Of ‘My Husband’s Not Gay’. “In reality, that choice has been dictated by the threat of being ostracized by their families, community and religion.”

Scenes from the Portland Counter-Protest That Drove Off the Westboro Baptist Church.

Dog sometimes hops on bus alone, gets off at Seattle dog park.

God, Gays and the Atlanta Fire Department.

What TLC doesn’t show on TV: Nearly 7 in 10 Mormon marriages between straight women, gay-leaning men end in divorce. Thanks to @seashellseller for the link!

What not to say to authors (and what to say instead).

132-year-old Winchester rifle found propped against desert tree in Nevada.

How secular family values stack up.

The Importance Of LGBT Visibility: Why I Want Everyone To Know I’m Gay. Awesome cartoon!

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I used to publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
