'Holy Bullies & Headless Monsters celebrates 13 years, Drew Brees clarifies, & other Friday midday news briefs

It's that time again!!!!!

Thirteen years ago, I began this blog to expose how the anti-LGBTQ industry distorts and lies in order to demonize my brothers and sisters. It's been a wild ride which includes mentions in publications like The Daily Beast, the Advocate, The Washington Blade and a host of awards including a GLAAD Media Award (and four nominations). And the ride ain't over yet. It's not even close to being over. Thank you all of my friends and supporters for guiding me along the way, keeping me sane, and lifting me up.

Drew Brees: I Was Unaware of Focus on the Family's Views When I Shot Promo Video - New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees teamed up with anti-LGBTQ group Focus on the Family for a "Bring Your Bible to School Day" event but claims not to know the group's history of lobbying against our rights and safety. I tend to believe him because, let's face it, a lot of folks aren't aware of how insidious some religious right groups are. You know how this country is about its football heroes, so some folks aren't going to be happy at us for pressing the issue. Let them. Our rights, community, and families are at stake. It's good that Brees clarified the situation.

Kristen Stewart’s experience is emblematic of LGBTQ people’s struggles in Hollywood - So true, unfortunately. 

These 48 Lawmakers Want to Legalize LGBTQ+ Discrimination - Don't forget. 

The rise of anti-trans “radical” feminists, explained - Wonderful article explaining the exploits of a bunch of awful individuals. I have ZERO respect for members of our community who will work with the anti-LGBTQ industry to destroy their own people. What makes these shortsighted folks think that the target won't be on them, next? Stupid, stupid, stupid.
