Queer and Queerer Ep. 41 – The Lime Green Gas Mask Episode

Zack’s sick and Peterson’s been busy, so this week’s episode isn’t exactly coherent. The most recent Glee episode gives us plenty to talk about, including bisexuality and anti-gay violence. Plus, there’s that whole Lady Gaga and Target thing. We also honor the passing of a local LGBT activist with the poem that was used in […]

Queer and Queerer Ep. 28 – Hell in a Pumpkin Basket

BOO! What’s funny is before recording, Peterson was going to use a funny Halloweeny voice and Zack wasn’t, but the opposite ended up happening! We sacrifice watching an episode of Glee to bring you this spooky episode, featuring the terrors of Judge Judy, Hare Krishnas, and peanut butter! Most of the episode is dedicated to […]

The More Things Change, The More Things Stay The Same

It doesn’t matter that the military violated the intent of the law by conducting witch-hunts among its ranks. (The original full name included “Don’t Pursue” and “Don’t Harass” was added, but to little avail.) It doesn’t matter that it costs the military millions of dollars and important talent. It doesn’t matter that a federal judge just made […]

Frank Rich has written a piece in today’s New York Times that’s getting a lot of attention. He reminds us that the closing arguments in Perry v. Schwarzengger are this week, that David Blankenhorn’s testimony is crap, and that we’re lucky to have Glee. Rich also makes some connections to Elton John performing at Rush […]

(Note: Spoilers ahead! Go watch the season finale if you haven’t yet.) Like a good (gay) son, I got my mother hooked on watching Glee. This was a mistake. Now, every week, she wants to watch, but then I have to hear about everything she doesn’t like about the show. The most common complaint? “The […]
