I have no words. Seriously, I expect a hell of a lot better from one of the best art museums in the country.

Black Girl Dangerous has a great interview with KOKUMO, a singer, filmmaker, and activist from Chicago. Her song “There Will Come a Day” is about a trans woman grappling with coming out to a man she’s dating, and it’s a) amazing, and b) free to download here.

Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin has ordered National Guard offices in her state to stop processing benefits requestsor same-sex couples. Fuck the south.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu: “I don’t think, ‘What do I want to do today? I want to speak up on gay rights.’ No. It’s God catching me by my neck.” Read the rest of the interview here.

A new approach to reclassifying sexual orientation’s standard of scrutiny may be forthcoming from this 9th circuit lawsuit. Stay tuned.

And finally: the headline made me cringe a little, but I was so, so pleased glad I decided to read this sweet, sensitive coverage of the UK’s first marriage of two trans people. I wish them every happiness. 😀
