Queering Snitches, Landlords, and Bosses? Why Anarchists Must Not Host "Queering Anarchism - by qu@ck
We are writing to inform you about concerns we have with the book Queering Anarchism, recently published by AK Press. This is not a critique of the politics within Queering Anarchism, albeit we have many, rather it is to offer you vital information on some of the contributing authors. We believe this information to be damning and contrary to anarchy, anarchism, and revolutionary movements alike.

(The gradual demise of the gender binary is good news for feminism. Roles and stereotypes become harder to pursue as gender identity blurs)

Gorky Park - by jabber
Just after the revolution, at least during the first decade of Soviet rule one could speak about a great improvement in the sexual emancipation and gender equality. For instance, in the Criminal Codes of the RSFSR of 1922 and 1926 there were no articles concerning the criminal responsibility for being gay, since Soviet legislation was unaware of the “crimes against morality”.

Same-Sex Couples Struggle to Stay Together Despite U.S. Laws - by GetEQUAL and Out4Immigration
How many more holidays must we go through apart? Will we have to celebrate our ten-year anniversary over the phone, as we celebrated our five-year anniversary? There is no reason for the United States to maintain these unjust laws other than bigotry, pure and simple. But we, as Americans, can choose to stand up and tell the government that we will no longer endure the pain and suffering being inflicted upon American citizens. It is time for comprehensive immigration reform that includes LGBT ...

Obama, Labor and Marriage Equality - by Mark Vorpahl
Since President Obama made his very calculated public statement announcing that he was “personally” in favor of same sex marriage, among the many commentators who have rushed to his support have been a significant number of Labor leaders.

Reasons to Oppose the Institution of Marriage - by Neither Gay nor Straight
The recent announcement by President Obama in support of gay marriage leaves many questions unanswered. Why do we need to get permission from a religious authority figure to be with the one(s) we love and care about? Isn't monogamy really for the birds?

National Institute of Corrections reports transgendered raped 20 times more often in jails - by Trixi
a 2009 research report cited findings that transgender offenders experienced sexual victimization at a rate twenty times higher than a random sampling of offenders in the same facility. Such evidence indicates that LGBTI offenders are at increased risk for sexual victimization while in custody, and agencies that ignore this may be placing themselves at risk for litigation.

Trans and Queer Voices on the Question of Civilization - by Trans And Extremely Dangerous
This is a call out for submissions of work, short articles, essays, poems, artwork and the like, by trans and queer (in the broad sense of the term) authors relating to the topic of civilization. Specifically, trans and queer people face a unique swarm of challenges when confronting the fact of civilization and it’s destructiveness. I hope to compile a collection of works that face these issues head-on, forcing them into the spotlight now rather than waiting for them to be sorted out in the...

Homophobia in Italy: Transsexual assaulted in Licata (Sicily) - by EveryOne Group
A case that is typical of the reality in which LGBTI people in Italy are currently living. It is a tragic reality, yet very often victims of abuse and violence fail to report the attacks. The politicians and media are doing nothing about these episodes of homophobia, a phenomenon that is now totally out of control.

Uganda's Anti-gay distraction is back (audio/mpeg 988.9 KB) - by KPFA Weekend News/Ann Garrison
11.02.2011 - Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Bill has long distracted the world from the human rights abuses of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, in both Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. And, now it's back, yet again, as the country experiences a resurgence in protest against the soaring cost of basic necessities and the Museveni government's corruption in deals with Western corporations to extract Uganda's vast oil reserves. KPFA reported on 10.30.2011. Audio archive: 3 minutes.

Parker Jaques: Bisexual, Binary and Proud! - by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
Parker Jaques isn't the usual sort of interviewee who gets featured in a Queer publication. That's why I wanted to interview him for the cover story in the September 2011 Zenger's Newsmagazine. He doesn't have a traumatic, breast-beating coming-out story to tell. He wasn't Queer-bashed in school because his mother encouraged him to fight back if anyone tried it. He's proud of his identity not only as a Bisexual but as a gender-identified male, and he has such withering contempt for people (li...

Marching with S.A.M.E. at San Diego's Pride Parade - by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
A lot of progressive Queers and Queer-friendly allies have written off the annual Pride events as overly commercial, corporate and mainstream. But that's not what it felt like to me when I marched with the San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.) in San Diego's Pride Parade July 16. In a mixed contingent that also included members of the Bradley Manning Support Group and the International Socialist Organization, I felt like part of a movement, participating in an island of militant...
