Friday Five (love is love edition)

It’s the final Friday of Pride Month, and my husband and I are going on a small vacation.

It’s once again time for Locus Awards Weekend, a small sci-fi event we’ve been going to for a few years that is on the same weekend as Pride and whose hotel is conveniently really close to the end of the parade route and the location of the festival. So, Happy Pride!

Anyway, welcome to the Friday Five. This week I bring you: the top five stories of interest to queer folks, the top two stories of the week, and five videos (plus things I wrote).

This Week in News for Queers and Allies:

Gay teen couple leading new telenovela makes history in Mexico.

Report: Just One Accepting Adult Can Save an LGBTQ Young Person’s Life.

The Older Generation to Young Gay Men: “Why the Fuck Are You Complaining?”. I would say some of the older generation, not all of us.

The Religious Roots of Pride.

These rainbow flag-waving corporations donated millions to anti-gay members of Congress.

Stories of the Week:

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. For more than 18 years I edited and published 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.
