RESIST!

RESIST!

  BY PAUL SCHINDLER | As we face what already seems an exhaustively daunting challenge wrought by Donald Trump’s presidency, the first thing we can agree on is that each of us should do something. A critical corollary to that is that we each need to try not to fritter away too much time –– […]

Nationwide, Obamacare Supporters Rally

PHOTO ESSAY BY DONNA ACETO | Just days after Republicans in Congress approved a parliamentary measure that would allow them to move forward with the repeal of the Affordable Care Act without the Democrats in the Senate having the ability to mount a filibuster that would require repeal advocates to secure 60 votes, Americans gathered […]

Grabbing Trump’s Attention With Pink Pussyhats  

BY LINCOLN ANDERSON AND TEQUILA MINSKY | Uptown to Downtown, East Side to West, from art openings to religious services, in store windows and atop heads, “pussyhats” are popping up everywhere. Mostly women are wearing them, but some men, too. They’re part of the Pussyhat Project, which aims to knit, crochet, and sew up to 1.17 […]

Cooking Up Rebellion

Cooking Up Rebellion

BY DONNA MINKOWITZ | In times of trouble, cooking makes me whole. I may be tired, irritable, I may have gotten home late, I may even be sick, but I stand at my fry pan tossing in onions, that base of almost every culture’s cooking. To me, it might as well be the base of […]

Trump Redux in France?

Trump Redux in France?

BY KELLY COGSWELL | In France, we’re gearing up for a presidential election where the likely victor, François Fillon, is as friendly with Putin as Trump is and has policies as disastrously conservative as Pence.

Wielding Words So as Not to Yield    

BY PUMA PERL | On November 9, 2016, I woke up numb. Then I wrote a poem. Social media exploded with rage and argument. My Texas poet buddy Justin Booth and I made a pact to post poems, lyrics, and quotes. Diane di Prima. Amiri Baraka. Bad Brains. I sought to commune with other artists. […]

BY ED SIKOV | A spate of articles has appeared lately on the subject of gay bars shutting down, and strangely, they all conclude that it’s A Good Thing.

On London Stage, Love Trumps Hate –– Mostly

On London Stage, Love Trumps Hate –– Mostly

BY ANDY HUMM | Chris Hedges, the reporter who is trying to restore Western civilization’s conscience, just wrote that in the wake of the election debacle, “We will endure by holding fast to our integrity, by building community, and by spawning new institutions in the midst of the wreckage.” In this bleakest of winters, that sobering […]

Two Sides of Fear’s Coin

Two Sides of Fear’s Coin

BY SAM OGLESBY | On November 10, over breakfast, I was surprised and delighted when my partner of 34 years looked up from his cereal and said, “Let’s get married !” We were happy when same-sex marriage became legal nationally last year, but like many couples, gay and straight, we had mixed feelings about the institution […]

When Activists Made a Difference

When Activists Made a Difference

BY NATHAN RILEY | David France’s masterly new history of the battle against AIDS does double duty: chronicling the exciting but desperate mobilization against the fatal epidemic while also offering inspiration to activists – many from that earlier fight, but many more who are younger – who must today confront the reality of Donald Trump as […]
