You'd think with 70 contributors, we'd have already talked about every bit of LGBT news and gossip. (Remember when you used to get a smidge of queer news every month and The Advocate was the only source usually except for the odd television news report?) Times have changed, my friend; there's a ton of stuff out there now. Here's some stuff I found interesting this week, but no one got around to blogging.
- Jörg Haider, Europe's most telegenic Nazi-sympathizing politician, and his spin doctor, Stefan Petzner, seemed poised to return the Austrian far right to power. But after Haider died in a high-speed crash, Petzner revealed he'd been far more than his boss's protégé.
- OutFront blogger Bryan Blaise had an Oprah moment after he wrote a post about Dustin Lance Black's Oscar win.
- Seven members of the Erie, PA LGBT community had a meeting with newly elected Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper that went really well.
- Times are tough. Have you checked out Out & Equal's LGBTCareerLink site? You could find a job with Gay Inc. or other queer friendly companies.
- If you live in Utah, don't forget that today is the Buttars-Palooza festival in honor of homophobic state senator Chris Buttar's recent anti-gay rant.
- The 13th annual Positively Aware HIV Drug Guide is now available. Included are tips on how to use each medication, and viewpoints from well-respected physicians and activists.
- Several of Harvey Milk's relatives that knew him well are, obviously, still alive. What do they think of Milk and the subsequent Oscar wins?
