Caring About Queers During the Trumpocalypse

BY KELLY COGSWELL | After gracing the front pages for what seems like years with major gains in trans rights and marriage equality, queers are nearly invisible again in the face of neo-Nazis in the White House and board rooms, nuclear war with North Korea, deadly earthquakes in Mexico, fires across the globe, and their evil […]

Lessons from Egypt on Organizing the Resistance

BY KELLY COGSWELL | Six years ago last week, on January 25, 2011, mass demonstrations began in Egypt that would topple the corrupt, brutal regime of Hosni Mubarak. Following the lead of Tunisia, demos were at first just inspired by, and reported on, social media. After a couple days, they became so big even Egypt’s […]

How Resistance Can Take Hold, Make Change

BY NATHAN RILEY | Several million marchers have already vented their revulsion and damned Donald Trump, revealing an enthusiasm for resistance that could sustain a left backlash, while Trumpites are accusing the protesters of dividing the nation. Beneath the bluster of administration officials, however, they are worried. His chief of staff, Reince Priebus, warned that […]

Forward Ever, Normal Never: Taking Down Trump

BY SUSIE DAY | This dream. Something is in the house, something’s breaking, the things I love are going away. I reach for Laura, she becomes translucent, evaporates. I wake up, telling myself this dream means I’m worried about how tired and worn Laura has grown from years of activist work trying to get people […]

When Trump is King

BY KELLY COGSWELL | We could have done it. Had the first female president of the US. And one of the smartest, most prepared executives ever, but never underestimate misogyny. Never underestimate the vast selling power of hate and fear, and a sensationalist, ratings-grabbing media that insisted on covering Trump as if he was a […]

Trust in Honest Elections Fundamental to Our Democracy

Trust in Honest Elections Fundamental to Our Democracy

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | The latest dispiriting turn in a toxic presidential campaign has been Republican Donald Trump’s insistence that the results on November 8 may be fatally undermined by widespread voter fraud. He first warned of this peril in late summer when post-convention polls showed Hillary Clinton building a comfortable lead. Telling a small town […]

President Trump?

BY KELLY COGSWELL | Well, I won’t do that again. Not without a lot more alcohol down the hatch. But I did it. I watched the first Trump-Clinton debate. I will summarize it for you as a rational, mostly truthful woman answering the moderator’s questions on one side, and on the other a shrieky, red-faced man […]

Hillary Clinton and the New Liberal Consensus

BY NATHAN RILEY | The emerging likelihood that Hillary Clinton will be our next president confirms the political paradox that has always surrounded that storied family. The 1990s was the era when Americans in large numbers came to accept lesbians and gays. The social issues that had elevated Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan to the presidency […]

Queers in Alphabet City

BY KELLY COGSWELL | What a mess. Already in March somebody suggested that trans people take their T and exit from the LGBT movement. And I eavesdropped on an all too typical election year conversation in which a young gay man long mentored by a dyke called her something along the lines of idiot cunt, indicating […]

Against Gay Human Rights in Africa… Or, Activists Are Always Wrong

BY KELLY COGSWELL | Activists are always being told to shut up, sit down, go away — by people in their own movements. “Honey catches more flies than vinegar,” they say. Or, “The patient dog eats the fattest bone.” The specter of backlash is also raised, as if the black activist were responsible for racism. As […]
