CW33′s Doug Magditch came by to interview me about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act for the Gay Agenda this week. I’m not sure why he didn’t ask me about Ernst & Young’s “sexy boys” problem instead. Watch this week’s episode below.
In this week’s installment, Doug Magditch — recently referred to as “a sexy Barbara Walters with bigger biceps” — discusses a Texas Senate committee’s historic vote to advance a pro-LGBT bill, the AIDS treatment that will soon be available for $10 a month in South Africa, and — while he’s on the subject of South Africa — the first traditional same-sex wedding in the country, shown above. We’re not sure whether it was the cold weather or he’s embarrassed, but Doug covered up his biceps this week. Watch it below.
In this week’s Gay Agenda, CW33′s Doug Magditch (who’s sporting a new look) reports on the Boy Scouts’ decision to poll parents on its gay ban, an online test that shows how homophobic people are, and news that the Vatican owns a gay sauna. Watch it below.
In this week’s installment, CW33’s Doug Magditch highlights Texas’ “homosexual conduct” law that’s still on the books a decade after the U.S. Supreme Court found it unconstitutional. The segment also mentions a drag queen who was asked to read at a daycare and then uninvited because his appearance was “inappropriate,” as well as the Phi Alpha Tau fraternity at Boston’s Emerson College that’s raising money for a trans brother’s surgery.
This week’s “Gay Agenda” focuses on the high rate of new HIV infections in the black community. The CW33’s Doug Magditch also points out the hundreds of out politicians across the nation, including the possibility of Dallas getting an out City Council member this year. And finally, as the image above shows, a new lingerie line is coming this spring for transgender women.
They launched “Keep Denton Queer” to share positive and negative experiences at local businesses. Ralph said she eventually wants to create ally stickers for LGBT-friendly businesses. In the meantime, she’s already created a starter website and is working with a local printer to make T-shirts.
Ralph recently spoke about her experience that led to the group’s creation on the CW33.
Trend or not, I have to say “bravo” to the guys for taking a risk within their music, which is historically homophobic, and blurring the gender lines. If it’s nothing more than for grabbing attention, well, the 19-year-old has succeeded. He’s allover the interwebs just like a Kardashian.
