Today's Mighty Oak

Also, there will be pancakes a little after 6 for those of you with with a bad case of registration munchies!



Alright, been a bit behind due to Half Marathon training I started writing this in May, but forgot about the draft, sorry about that, but it’s updated and finally finished- but let’s see what we have today.  First up, a great letter from the Good Men Project about the people we’ve lost due to the election.

The Buffy 20th anniversary reunion.

Surviving the World has a great comic for Pride:

Science has created a drip-free wine bottle!

A Federal Court found that the Civil Rights Act protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination.  This is huge, but will likely be fought (hint, read on).

In one 24-hour span, the new administration delivered three huge blows to queer rights: erasing us from the census, removing workplace protections for federal contractors and slashing budgets of programs to fight HIV/AIDS.

Randy Rainbow serves up an awesome Wicked parody:

PA legislator Brian Sims was being harassed by an online troll. So he called the troll’s grandmother.

Can we all just finally agree that Andrew Sullivan is a horrible person?

The problem with gay conservatives is a total lack of empathy.  A great piece by Slate.

The beautiful tribute to Carrie Fisher at Star Wars Celebration:

Betsy DeVos will not protect LGBTQ students.  This is my shocked face.

An awesome follow-up from an Outsports story, I love seeing people around the country (and world) being able to help each other!

A fully magical* pub is set to open, all set in the Harry Potter world!  *Magic achieved via science and movie affects.

This dropped from the Hamilton Mixtape this week, and it’s amazing:

The full, original text of Tolkien’s “Beren and Luthien” is, for the first time, available.  For those who have studied Tolkien, this is a huge deal.  That story is pretty much the basis for the lore that then came full circle during the Lord of the Rings.

Juno has been sending back jaw-droppingly beautiful shots from Jupiter, take a look!

A new rule for the New York Subway (or at least newly being enforced) is that all dogs must fit in a bag (or other carrier). So New Yorkers are doing exactly what you think they are.  

Eli Lieb has a beautiful cover of “Castle on a Hill:”

A reminder that the Catholic Church still considers gay people ‘intrinsically disordered’ and other deeply offensive bullshit.

And a Republican lawmaker in Missouri thinks there is a literal distinction between humans and gays.

Alright, that’s it for now, I’ll be back with more, I have a couple other drafts to finish up!
