Rick Santorum nearly wins in Iowa, proving that literally no one in the state of Iowa has access to Google, and Derrick at Popehat breaks down the caucus results in the most amusing possible way.

The play Tulpa, or Anne&Me is still over $2000 short of their 12 Jan IndieGoGo goal, and Pariah, a coming-of-age film about a young lesbian of color, premiered at Sundance 2011 and is in limited release. Support queer media!

Guest blogging at Sociological Images, Ridhi Kashyap breaks down that heartbreakingly adorable Australian marriage equality campaign from GetUp!, and why it matters.

Gemma at No More Lost is looking for some new contributors.

Featured image is a still from Pariah, written and directed by Dee Rees, Focus Features 2011.

    The Getup! ad is good. But I can’t appreciate it because it’s made by people who currently have or have previously had the power to directly change discriminatory marriage laws. Essentially we get that ad instead of actual gay marriage.

    I’ve heard so many people talk about the Iowa result today, at times it seemed like Santorum had gotten all over my computer screen.
