Fake Bruce Jenner Cover Is 'Sad'

Fake Bruce Jenner Cover Is 'Sad'


...and five other things you should know today

1. Trans advocates have roundly condemned InTouch Weekly's photoshopped cover of Bruce Jenner, which carries the headline "Bruce Jenner: My Life As A Woman." The magazine even falsely claims that "the former Olympian plans to come out as a transgender woman in a future issue of The Advocate." That's also a lie: The Advocate is not planning a cover story on Jenner. [The Advocate]

2. Russell T. Davies, creator of the original Queer As Folk, former writer for Doctor Who, and creator of the upcoming series Banana and Cucumber, has announced that he is now working on a new TV drama. Set in the 1980s, The Boys will explore the lives of those young men who died "quiet" deaths from AIDS. Speaking of the show's premise, Davies said that he "can't believe" that no one has told these stories before. With a character based on Davies himself, it promises to be a powerful exploration of an often side-stepped period in gay history. [The Guardian]

3. Queen Elizabeth has announced that Donnya Piggott, the 24-year-old founder of BGLAD (Barbados Gays and Lesbians Against Discrimination), will be inducted into the Queen's Young Leaders Programme. In Barbados, homosexuality is illegal -- a holdover from British colonial law. Perhaps this step shows that the United Kingdom will be taking a more active role in repairing the damage it did in centuries past to spread anti-LGBT attitudes and laws around the world.

4. The new Thai constitution will officially recognize a third gender. Kamnoon Sittisamarn, a spokesman for the drafting panel, said: "There are not only men and women, we need to protect all sexes. We consider all sexes to be equal." [Pink News]

5. India sure is a roller-coaster of LGBT activity. Earlier this week, one official in Goa announced intentions to "treat" homosexuality in the region's youth. The next day, his embarrassed superior assured the media that there was no such plan, and that homosexuality was a "natural gift". And in some more promising news, a spokesperson for the country's leading party, Bharatiya Janata Party, recently announced: "We are for decriminalizing homosexuality. That is the progressive way forward." [Pink News]
