Today is the last day of Pride.
Not everyone’s on board —
— but so many are.
Including most of corporate America, from GM and Google to Microsoft and Dow.
. . . Because the stories of trans and non-binary voices deserve to be heard more widely, we will amplify the titles that can be found at Audible in collections like “The Best Trans and Non-binary Listens by Queer Authors” and “Trans Stories” and spotlight our interviews with creators like Jazz Jennings, Annalee Newitz and Nico Tortorella. Our commitment to trans representation extends internationally, with trans-positive content such as Azaad Awaaz, a series created for our free Audible Suno service in India featuring stories like that of India’s first transman pilot and an activist empowering transmen in rural India . . .
. . . Now is a time to draw together to celebrate the glories of the human spectrum and to protect inherent civil rights for all.
Onward to a better world.
I marvel at the progress we’ve made.
That there would even be a Pride Month was inconceivable when I was growing up.
But, as I say, not everyone’s on board. Tonight at ten (7pm PT), HBO premieres Welcome To Chechnya — the story of real human beings tortured and sometimes killed with Vladimir Putin’s approval.
(Because of the risk to the real human beings in the film, a new technology was developed to replace their Chechen faces with American “donor” faces. See if you can tell.)
Even if you can’t find the time to watch, this review in Forbes will bring you up to speed.
If they can get along, why can’t we?
“Love is love.”
Quote of the Day
We Americans have evolved from a tough, resilient people, willing to sacrifice for future generations, into a people who want to feel good now -- at any price -- and let the future take care of itself.~Ross Perot
