Right-wing Christian claims a man is a ‘hero’ for refusing to walk on rainbow crossings and the jokes wrote themselves

A right-wing Christian has set the bar lower than it’s ever been before and declared a man who refuses to cross the road on LGBT+ cross-walks “a hero.” Steve Franssen shared a photo of a man standing beside LGBT+ crosswalks, which are painted in rainbow colours, and wrote: “This man in the state of Georgia is refusing to walk on the LGBTQ crosswalks. A hero! The eyes of the world are watching.” He has since put his account on private, so sadly the original tweet can no longer be seen...

Gwyneth Paltrow releases vagina-scented candle – and queer Twitter has thoughts

Gwyneth Paltrow, the queen of weird, extortionately overpriced and potentially harmful “wellness” products, has released a vagina-scented candle and LGBT+ Twitter has thoughts.

Converse serves big bisexual energy with ‘I heart boys and girls’ sneakers for Valentine’s Day

Converse is celebrating Valentine’s Day with sneakers which – depending on your point of view – scream either “bi rights!” or “give us your money, queers!” The Nike-owned shoemaker dropped three new styles emblazoned with an “I boys I girls” motif. Retailing at $65, the shoes conveniently arrive a month before Valentine’s Day. Finally, bi people (whether in mixed- or same-gender relationships) will be able to celebrate the most capitalist of holidays in footwear that screams “We’re here! We’re queer! We’re disappointed that these shoes see gender in such a...

Bali guesthouses investigated by authorities for ‘catering to gays’ and ‘tainting’ island’s reputation

At least four villas in Bali, Indonesia, are being investigated for “marketing themselves specifically for the gay community”, amid increasing anti-LGBT+ sentiment on the island. Although the island of Bali has historically been seen as one of the most tolerant places in country, in general discrimination and violence against LGBT+ people is on the rise in Indonesia. Gay sex is currently legal in most regions of the country, including Bali, but there are no discrimination protections for LGBT+ people and same-sex relationships are not recognised. In 2018, an Indonesian province...
