  Like Lollapalooza, Woodstock, and all good organized events, Pride Month has gotten so corporate. The line-up for PrideFest has such cringe-worthy events like PETCO's PetPride, so leave it to the dykes to keep the spice in all things gay with the 18th annual Dyke March this Saturday, June 26th. Dyke March officially started in 1993 by the Lesbian Avengers as a protest march against the largely white and male focus of Pride Month and Pride events. The ... Read More
In case you didn't already start your Friday off with a smile, here's a video of the always funny and cute Betty White doing an interview with Asylum's Ron Babcock. Rob tries to woo Betty and asks her advice on dating older women (not cougars, Ron!), and Betty is clearly too cool for the dirty-shirted dude.  UPDATE: Apologies for the video not uploading! Here's a link. Image: Betty White Video: ... Read More

If you haven't read Hanna Rosin's Atlantic piece, "The End Of Men," here's the short version–modern society has created a world better suited to stereotypically defined female skills. The sad facts she trots out include statistics on dropping levels of male enrollment at colleges and in the post-recession workforce. If you, like me, love men, it is a truly tragic read. That said, besides the title I didn't find it particularly incendiary. The same cannot be ... Read More

I found myself in the art/ photography publication section of a Borders this morning; where on the cover of Color Magazine the face of Kimiko Yoshida was discovered gazing back at me. The art nerd in me lost it to her technique: the neon green and highlighter yellow layered over a matte grey, the choice of tonal variations within a monochromatic field, the fact that somewhere in this latticed color landscape is a distinct, yet sinking, shape of a woman peering ...
