3:49 pm - when she lowers her eyes......

When she lowers her eyes she seems to hold all the beauty in the world between her eyelids; when she raises them I see only myself in her gaze. Kate Lesbian Dating blog

2:12 am - Славянское гей сообщество

Originally posted by irgole at Славянское гей сообщество

Многие геи, живущие в России, сталкивались с проявлениями гомофобии, к сожалению, общество не всегда готово к пониманию и терпимости к ЛГБТ согражданам. Но, сейчас есть политические группы и движения, общественные организации, в том числе лгбт организации, готовые принять геев такими какие они есть и отнестись к ним с пониманием. К сожалению, не редко, данные организации живут за счет зарубежных грантодателей, и, проводя дружественную к лгбт политику, одновременно пытаются внушить своим сторонникам идеи антипатриотизма и русофобии, защиты интересов олигархии.
  С другой стороны организации патриотического, религиозного, националистического толка не понимают, что в любом обществе количество геев не бывает меньше 5% и не готовы принять лгбт как неотъемлемую часть своего народа. Поэтому, возникает необходимость создания организации способной избежать вышеприведенных недостатков.



Шаг на пути к созданию такой организации – сообщество гей славян в интернете, которое должно, избегая крайностей, иметь следующие функции и цели:
1 Обсуждение социальных, политических вопросов и ЛГБТ тематики.
2 Борьба с гомофобией и русофобией.
3 Подъем солидарности гей славян, и просто славян.

11:51 pm - группы взаимопомощи ЛГБТ в Москве FAQ

tmmos01
— Сколько обычно людей приходит на группу?

Обычно приходит 7-10 человек. Но бывают случаи, когда группа состоит, к примеру, из 5 или из 18 человек. Когда в группе меньшее количество участников, в ней чаще складывается доверительная атмосфера, но при этом группа может оказаться не очень интересной. Когда на группе большое количество участников, часто она становится более дискуссионной.

— В чем цель группы взаимопомощи?

Основная цель — дать возможность участникам пообщаться в дружелюбной обстановке, обменяться опытом, найти новых друзей.

— Какой обычно возраст участников?

Возраст участников никак не ограничивается. Группы чаще всего посещают участники возрасте 20-30 лет. Часто бывают люди и младше и старше, от 18 до 71!

— По какому адресу проходят группы?

Обычно, точный адрес публично не объявляется из соображений безопасности. Как правило, новых участников активисты групп взаимопомощи встречают в метро или в других заранее оговоренных местах. Территориально наша группа находится в районе ст. место Ясенево и Курская, хотя иногда группа проводилась в других местах, например, на Новокузнецкой или Чистых прудах.

— Кто обычно проводит группу?

Группу всегда проводит ведущий, который избирается из числа участников группы перед ее началом.

9:22 am - sapphiastic, a new lesbian/bi blog.

muteness
Hello. I started a lesbian blog, and you all should give it a look:

http://sapphiastic.wordpress.com/

http://sapphiastic.wordpress.com/

http://sapphiastic.wordpress.com/


Sapphiastic (or sapphi) bursted onto the scene in April 2010, but didn’t make her graceful debut until May 2010. This blog serves as a place to laugh about certain things you just wouldn’t understand if you weren’t attracted to other girls. However, it’s not always for the chuckles and will monitor the LGBT scene as it relates to you.

A word to the fabulous: this is not your mother’s milk (or maybe it is) we use spicy language here, we will be talking in-depth about LGBT topics, but we also will be discussing the clitoris. That’s the only way to put it. That being said, use scroll-therapy if it’s just not your bag, I’m sure you’ll find something you like!

Sapphiastic is meant to start conversations, interact and say whats on your mind.


thanks!

4:00 pm - David Letterman Show Promotes Trans Disgust

queerunity
The David Letterman show on the CBS network has insulted Amanda Simpson, a trans woman who was recently appointed to the U.S. Commerce Department by the Obama administration. In the clip below David Letterman announces the news, followed by a guest on his show who breaks out in shock that "Amanda used to be a dude" the man is disgusted and outraged and runs off stage, the segment insinuates the man had some sort of relationship with Simpson and reinforces the sentiment that being transgender is somehow disgusting, misleading, and abnormal.

The video clip, other remarks by Letterman on LGBT issues and ways to contact the show are available below:

Workshops, speakers, and text studies address such topics as Judaism and homosexuality, activism, relationships, ethics, coming out, and politics. Last year more than one hundred students came from across the United States and Canada to participate, and we anticipate a similar turnout this year! Registration ($80) includes meals (all kosher), housing, and all conference events. Travel and registrations subsidies are available upon request (in the registration form).

11:39 pm - Gay Nightlife

destroycreate
Hey everyone, my name is Peter, I'm 22, living in Denmark, gay, and I am moving to San Francisco beginning next year.

I have been to San Francisco several times and have yet to truly experience the nightlife. I have only to Badlands, and that's it so far.

My question is, how is the gay nightlife in San Francisco? I've spent a lot of time in London and other major world cities and had the time of my life. From what I saw in San Francisco though, I was a bit dissapointed in that there seemed to be very few people in my age group (in their 20's), just a lot of much older men. There wasn't any of those huge nightclubs either, which I usally prefer, but mostly lots of small, old lookling, cramped dance bars.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but I was just a bit letdown seeing as SF is seen as the gay capital of the world, etc. So I'm wondering if I just went to the wrong places?

Where can I go to meet other young guys and dance the night away? I'm not into leather, S&M, dive kind of places, I'm more into the stylish/trendy venues. So what should I expect out of the SF gay scene? How is it different from say, LA's? Is it a fun city for gay nightlife, or not?

Thanks a lot!

9:52 pm - Good Taste (my new informal, gay-friendly, Bay-Area dining club)

glamrocktiger
I wanted to post this to this community since I don't think we have any gay gourmands on board yet (other than myself), and naturally we queers tend to enjoy one another's company.

"Eating Out" was my first thought for the group's name, but that may not have been in very Good Taste.

I am relatively new to the Bay Area but this is my new permanent home, but have the feeling I've lived here before. I work as a concierge/front desk agent at a cool historic hotel in downtown, very close to Union Square, the gate to Chinatown, etc. There are so many fabulous restaurants here and I love cuisine, wine, etc., and would like to dine out more so I can speak with firsthand knowledge to my guests and recommend restaurants. But being new I haven't developed a big group of friends yet, and dining alone is just not as fun. So I thought I'd see if some others wanted to get together, maybe twice a month or so, and dine at a different restaurant each time. I thought of posting this to this group since the Mission is known for its superabundance of amazing eateries. I can make reservations for us using Open Table or Restaurant Row, as is my wont. I like all types of food, honestly I don't think there's a single type of cuisine where I haven't found a single dish I can get with (I love sushi and sashimi, love Italian and classical French cooking, Mexican/Cuban/Salvadoran, LOVE German food and beer, etc).

I guess I don't really want to impose any restrictions as far as selecting the kind of people I'd like to dine with - I'm just thinking a very informal and casual thing where we get to eat some great food and meet some new people at the same time. I can do anything from a dive bar to a five-star, cloth-napking-and-sommelier type joint; I can dress up and I can dress down. My profile and list of interests will of course give you a sense of who I am. I'm really looking forward to getting to know this amazing city better. I live in Oakland but commute to downtown SF daily by BART for work (and am looking to move into SF proper soon, especially after being mugged/assaulted near my house the other night).

We've planned our first meet-up/group dining experience for Monday 11/23 at 8pm; inquire within for details. LET'S EAT!

You can view the Google Groups page I've started for us here.

Thank you for your support

1:49 pm - Please take this survey to help other lesbian moms!

choose_again

My name is Sequoia and I am a graduate student in Counseling Psych and a lesbian. As part of a GLBT course I am researching lesbian parenting; both so that I can help lesbian couples as a counselor, and in preparation of my own parenting goals eventually. I want to include some women’s voices as part of my paper so that it is not just about dry research. I am collecting these perspectives through an online survey, and then I will include snippets in my paper. Everything will be anonymous and only used in this paper.

 

Here is the link to the survey: http://tinyurl.com/yfz4e3h

 

This survey is to get personalized, subjective opinions and experiences about the decision-making and interpersonal process of lesbian couples who became planned parents through donor insemination.

To complete this survey, please make sure that you match the following criteria:

  • you identify as a woman-who-loves-exclusively-women, regardless of the term you choose to use.
  • you and another woman decided to become parents through using donor insemination (not adoption, not from previous relationship, etc) such that either you or your partner became pregnant and the intention is to raise the child together as co-mothers.

Feel free to answer as many or as few questions as you feel comfortable, with as much or little detail as you like.

This survey will be used in a graduate counseling paper, not in formal research. The results will all be anonymous.

Thank you so much for your participation and your inspiration!

3:31 pm - Movie suggestions?

zenlari
So,
I'm doing a film series for my school and I want to get some really cool Queer People of Color indie films/documentaries to show. We already showed Brother To Brother last year and while that movie's dope, it's really, really outdated. I was wondering if any folks in Blackfolk have suggestions for films.

Thanks,
--J--

10:36 am - Candle Light Vigil @ 18th & Castro

eerisedda
Hey kids!

I'm not sure if everyone here heard, but Wednesday night in DC two Transwomen were attacked not far from the T.H.E (Transgender Health Empowerment Inc) offices. One was seriously injured, but managed to survive, the other, Tyli'a "NaNa Boo" Mack did not.

By and large, we haven't seen much reaction from the community. Last night in DC a vigil was held.

Tonight, in San Francisco another one is being held, put together by One Struggle One Fight. We are meeting at 9:30PM on 18th and Castro for a candle light vigil to remember and speak out against this injustice. The evidence strongly suggests that Tyli'a's murder was indeed a hate crime.

Let's band together and take a stand!!!

I hope you can all make it to 18th and Castro tonight(29th) at 9:30PM! Bring your candles! Bring signs! Bring friends! Spread the word!!!
