    March 31st 2015 marks the sixth International Transgender Day of Visibility. The goal of the day is to celebrate life and transgender accomplishments while raising awareness of the discrimination that faces trans people on a daily basis. So if you know someone who is trans, tell them today that you support them, and that they matter. In person, on the Facebook, the Twitter, or the Tumblr, it doesn’t matter; do it!

    Our country's constitution guarantees its citizens the right to freely practice their religion so that we may all avoid discrimination.

  4. What Indiana’s Laws And GenCon’s Response Means For All Of Us

    Corporations are people. It’s what is called ‘legal fiction,’ a conceit that somehow we’ve all been signed on to without having a say in the matter. Of course corporations are not real people, but are allowed to act as such under certain circumstances, warping law, capitalism, and democracy in the process. They have rights without responsibilities, free speech but far more political power than a citizen. It’s a bit like giving a four year old a chainsaw.

  8. J.K. Rowling Responds to Fan Who “Can’t See” Dumbledore as Gay

    Perhaps you've been the victim of a Blinding Jinx?

    It's been almost eight years since Deathly Hallows was released, but homophobia and heteronormativity know no statute of limitations. J.K.

Now, they are reconsidering continuing their relationship with the State of Indiana in light of the recent passage of State Bill 101, which allows Indiana business owners to deny same-sex couples service in the name of "religious freedom."
