Please check out and share this kickstarter for the Same Difference film.
Same Difference is a documentary film about adolescents who experience same gendered attraction or an alternative gender identity (LGBT). Through this film, we hope to provide adolescents with a resource to combat isolation and encourage the acceptance of everyone.
About 9 million Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, let alone the rest of the world. Many LGBT people are children and adolescents, yet there is so little media to support the youth of this community. In order to make this film possible we really need your help.
We have less than 7% of the necessary funds to get this film off the ground. Please help us make it a possibility. There are so many young children who would benefit from seeing this. Some who may even reconsider taking their life because they know there are people who love and support them.
Split Normality – Greece 2.0
Over a year has passed since anti-austerity protests and mass riots threatened to ignite full-scale revolution in Greece. Photographer Yiannis Biliris takes us back to those heady days of June 2011, walking the haunted streets of Athens, reminding people that a worse fate than uncertainty is things staying the same.
A feminist porn conversation on daytime tv…
Yo Melissa Herris-Perry needs all the awards, while there are some things I would’ve added this is a great place to start. And they mentioned race :D
50 Shades of Grey though… still sad excuse of erotica.
MPH: The Business of Pornography
I’d have to agree, I can see why queer porn, woman produced porn, lesbian produced porn, and trans produced porn is doing so well right now. They are products were always needed but never made until recently. So the audience, thought to be tiny, is actually quite large and growing.
It’s similar with the success of web series that involve queer topics and/or star people of color. It’s covering an area that isn’t often explored by mainstream media and proving that they types of shows and videos can draw a large audience as well.
Transgenialer CSD 2012
Berlin, June 23rd 2012
The struggles at the Stonewall Inn, Christopher Street, New York, in june of 1969, were a revolt against repression, and homophobic, racist and transphobic exclusion, and the origin of the CSD movement. The Transgenialer CSD has been in this tradition since 1998. Adaptation, commodification, (homo) nationalism and the pathologization of trans- and intersex people are reasons for resistance! Et the attempt to develop a solidary counterforce in the face of institutionalized and everyday discrimination, marginalization and violence, here and around the world.
Meeting point at 1 pm at the corner of Elsenstr./Am Treptower Park (in front of the Treptower Park Center)

Stage with speeches, performances, music and infostands
I made this video! (and yes I’m proud =P)
If you are in Berlin, then you must come to this event, especially if you were planning on going to the mainstream official gay pride! Transgenialer CSD is the alternative Christopher Street Day which started in 1998 in opposition to the rampant homo-nationalism, commodification and lack of intersectionnality in Berlin’s official CSD.
