“Raise your hand if you believe her.”

It’s the final Friday in September, the month in which superior people are born. It is also the week of my second 29th birthday—and my husband served up an awesome cake on the day.

Other parts of the week have been less fun. Especially if one has been paying attention to the news and one cares about the rights and lives of women or queer people.

Which brings us to the Friday Five: the top five (IMHO) stories of the week related to queer people, the bottom five stories related to the future of the nation and five videos (plus my blog post).

Queer stories of the Week:

Queer activist beaten to death in the street as a crowd stands and watches.

A Christian School Changed Its Anti-Gay Policy To… One That’s Still Anti-Gay.

Congress Turns Back Anti-LGBTQ Adoption Amendment.

Historic Number Of LGBTQ Candidates Won Primaries In 2018 Midterms.

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.
