!! OMG, how exciting: Glad Day Bookshop is moving !!

glad-day-big-move

Glad Day Bookshop, the world’s oldest LGBTQ bookstore, is reinventing itself as a cafe/bar/bookstore/community space in a fabulous location right on Church Street in the heart of Toronto’s gay village, and they need some help.

Perhaps you’ve purchased some literature, zines, or vintage erotica from Glad Day’s online shop, or maybe you’ve been in the Toronto store.

But if Glad Day is new to you, let us be the first to tell you it is an important institution in Toronto, but also for our community worldwide. Glad Day is one of the few bookshops that is not only still around, but thriving.

Their book sales are up, which counters the general trend of bookshops in the age of Amazon, but transitioning the business to a larger, better-situated space takes some extra cash. Please consider chipping in a few dollars to help them grow. Donate to their Indiegogo campaign here.

Or just buy a book (or graphic novel, or sexy gay novel, or sexy lesbian novel, or sexy photobook or comic).

!! OMG, quote of the day: M.I.A. wonders when Beyonce or Kendick Lamar will start talking about Muslim Lives Mattering !!

watch-mia-discuss-the-extreme-reaction-provoked-by-her-migrant-crisis-video-borders-1452877599

“It’s interesting that in America the problem you’re allowed to talk about is Black Lives Matter. It’s not a new thing to me—it’s what Lauryn Hill was saying in the 1990s, or Public Enemy in the 1980s. Is Beyoncé​ or Kendrick Lamar going to say Muslim Lives Matter? Or Syrian Lives Matter? Or this kid in Pakistan matters? That’s a more interesting question. And you cannot ask it on a song that’s on Apple, you cannot ask it on an American TV programme, you cannot create a tag on Twitter, Michelle Obama isn’t going to hump you back.”

– Singer, activist, M.I.A. to ES Magazine.

M.I.A. took to Twitter to clarify her statement, tweeting:

!! OMG, WATCH: Totally awesome woman confronts Florida Governor Rick Scott, shames him out of Starbucks for cutting MedicAid !!

She’d like a tall venti, no fat with EXTRA WHIP, BITCH! She ain’t playin’! Watch as a woman at Starbucks goes for the jugular on FL Gov. Rick Scott screaming:

“You cut Medicaid, so I couldn’t get Obamacare. You’re an asshole. You don’t care about working people. … You should be ashamed to show your face around here. You strip women of access to public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott! We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to do! When poor people like us need health services, you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott! You’re an embarrassment to our state.”

Hey! I don’t blame her! This is how I act after my fourth coffee of the day too. The jitters can make a hoe do some crazy things. ALSO — I like that Butthead from Beavis and Butthead was kind enough to film all of this on his iphone. His end comment is really the icing on the cake.

!! OMG, is Alberta the new (rap) battleground for the trans rights movement? Alberta dad responds to mom’s hateful “Gender Bender” rap !!

A response video to the ridiculous anti-trans rap “Gender Bender” out of ALberta by M.H. Wiebe comes to us this week from Ryan Sauve, an Alberta dad of three, who released his track “Respect Diversity”.

In an interview with CBC News, Sauve stated that he felt compelled to write the rap after seeing how much attention Wiebe’s rap had gotten.

“I just felt that if a transgender kid or teen comes across that video, it could make them feel pretty alone, so I figured if we created a video response, it might make them feel like they have allies, that they’re supported and make them feel better about themselves and that there are people out there who care.”
