Same-Sex Marriage Legal in New York

Do Not Own

New York State voted...and same-sex marriage is now legal.

It's just a step. But it's still a step.

Congratulations to New York for making the right decision.

Leslie Jordan - My Trip Down the Pink Carpet

Leslie Jordan: My Trip Down the Pink Carpet

Review by: Lauren

My Trip Down the Pink Carpet is a stand-up comedy show with Leslie Jordan. The reason I know Mr. Jordan is through Will and Grace. Though it's probably obvious by now, Leslie Jordan is a gay man who went through a lot to get where he is now. If you've seen Jordan in anything, you should know that he has what people would call the "stereotypical gay voice." You would think this would make it hard to hide, but hide Jordan tried. It didn't last of course.

Jordan tells random stories from his life, starting from a younger age to where he is now. He often gets off track and starts "rambling" about something else...but it obviously works. It makes it fun and intersesting to watch. He's definitely a good comedian and I enjoyed hearing about his life...especially when he mentioned some of the celebrities he has worked with.

I'm not sure if the DVD has a set rating, though I'm sure it doesn't since it's stand-up. I do want to warn you that there is a slightly inappropriate story that is really only suitable for an older audience. Thes rest of it would be more of a typical PG-13 rating.

First Transgender Prom Queen

Thanks to The Happy Nappy Bookseller for letting me know about the first transgender Prom Queen at a public school in the U.S.

Her name is Andii (formerly Andrew) and she was up against 14 girls to win. Wow, what a wonderful accomplishment!! It's great that something like this can actually happen these days. It's great that Andii's personal dream of becoming Prom Queen came true, despite the gender she was born as. To her, she's a female and that means she would not run for Prom King.

Another thing I read in the article that was exciting is that not only is Andii in the school's Gay Straight Alliance, but so is Juan, the Prom King. Isn't that wonderful?

It wasn't entirely easy for Andii to run as there were some people fighting to get her name off the ballot. Thankfully, it worked out though.

Please leave your thoughts on this event in the comments. As long as you aren't rude, we won't delete you!

Oh, and please still leave a comment in the following interview with director, Scott Boswell. Don't leave your thoughts about the interview here as Scott might not see them. Thanks!
