New FX series "Pose"

Amazon now offers the perfect trinket for straights who loathe the rainbow flag — plus a mariachi proposal, Ryan Murphy’s new series and more!

Never Needs Irony!

Online megastore retailer Amazon is selling something perfect for anyone looking to thwart the onerous Gay Agenda. It’s a beautiful gold-plated badge provided by a company called 1000 Flags — which ironically also sells rainbow flag products. So far, there are only two reviews, but we’re providing a link to the site, so that you can let your appraisal be known.

Murphy’s law

Ryan Murphy’s much-anticpated ballroom series Pose makes its debut June 3, but FX has just posted their first official trailer for the show — meaning viewers can get some idea of what to expect.

In interviews late last year, Murphy told the press: “Along with being a dance musical and an affirming look at American life in the 1980s, I’m so proud that Pose and FX has made history right from the beginning by featuring the most trans series regular actors ever in an American television production. Additionally, the first season Pose will feature 50-plus LGBTQ characters — a record in American television history. I can’t wait for people to see this incredibly talented, passionate cast.”

Murphy, whose Midas touch is all over modern TV classics like American Horror Story, Glee and Feud directs the season’s first two episodes.

Who’s Behind the Ban?

What kind of influence did hate groups have in getting the administration to trot out another attempt to keep transgender Americans from serving in the Armed Forces?

Several weeks back, a series of unnamed White House officials told both Slate and Think Progress that organizations well-acknowledged as hate groups —including the Heritage Foundation and the Family Research Council — had influenced the transgender military ban. And now several LGBT equal rights groups have asked a judge to order the administration to produce communications documents related to the ban in mounting a legal challenge against the directive.

Washington D.C. U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly is asked in a motion to compel both conservative groups to produce any interactions with the White House about the ban. The motion was filed by equal rights advocates NCLR (National Center for Lesbian Rights) NCLR and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD).
