Sundance 2017: Best LGBT Films

Here's a link to The Advocate with a list of recent LGBT films. 

Mark Zuckerberg Sues Hundreds of Hawaiians

Here's what Facebook's good old Mark Zuckerberg has been up to lately.

Back in 2014, Mark Zuckerberg paid close to $100 million for 700 acres of beachfront property on the island of Kauai.

Now the Facebook billionaire is suing a few hundred Hawaiians who still have legal ownership claims to parts of his vacation estate through their ancestors, as was first reported by the Honolulu Star Advertiser

You can read more about that here. According to this, last year good old Zuckerberg built a huge know, made out of block their views of the ocean. Evidently, Trump isn't the only one big on wall building.

10 More Will and Grace Years and Years Later

According to all reports, this breaking news seems as if it's going to happen after all.

Well, it’s official: As of Wednesday, NBC has ordered ten new episodes of Will & Grace that will reunite series stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally. As Entertainment Weekly reports, they’ll each be airing during their 2017-2018 TV season.

You can read the rest here. The comments are mixed. I know it comes as a surprise to many of you that not all gay men loved this show. And we have our reasons. One person commented with this...

  • rod815 I never watched it, they totally made it for straight audiences implicating a woman in a gay man’s life, with the question always looming…”Maybe he’ll turn straight”
Trans People On Trump

Now that the election is over many who fall under the umbrella of LGBT are planning in advance for certain things...that may or may not happen. It really is too soon to know, but it is understandable. I've heard from friends in Key West that a lot of younger gay men are rushing to get married for fear marriage might be taken away from them. And this article talks about how trans people are eager to get their legal documentation done before Trump takes office.

“In my experience, belonging to a marginalized group [like the trans community] forces you into this unnatural state where you are always prepared for the absolute worst thing to happen,” he tells Queerty. “But you’re also keeping just enough hope alive within yourself to get out of bed each day and face an America where you might get harassed, assaulted, or even killed for who you are.”

There's a full interview here. Whether you're for Trump or against him, this is a valid concern for anyone living under the LGBT umbrella because no one knows what to expect now. We prepare for the worst because we're so used to living that way.
