    JK Rowling has tweeted an image of a 'white, bearded, Stonewall-approved lesbian' after facing fury for sharing a picture of her friend Allison Bailey who is suing the controversial LGBT charity. The Harry Potter writer, 56, posted a picture of her 'inspirational' friend Ms Bailey, who is a lesbian, to mark Lesbian Visibility Week which started in the UK today. The image, which showed Ms Bailey marching for LGB rights in San Francisco in 1991, sparked fury within the trans community because the barrister is currently suing the LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall and her London chambers over claims she was 'silenced' for her views on transgender issues. Linda Riley, the founder of Lesbian Visibility Week, accused Ms Rowling of using the week as 'a vehicle to stir up more hate within our community', adding that she 'stands with Stonewall'. In response, Ms Rowling tweeted a picture of Alex Drummond, who she called a 'white, bearded, Stonewall-approved lesbian', after claiming she had 'stirred up hate' for posting pictures of 'black lesbians marching for their rights'.

Always have, hopefully always won’t,” the performer, 63, told Page Six in a recent interview. “I think the show appeals to a certain generation of people who have issues,” she continued. “I don’t think it’s the show’s fault. I think it’s the audience’s fault.” DeLaria added that “It’s pretty much how I’ve I’ve been treated my whole life. “Any drag queen can talk to you at length about this and [how] black trans people just have a target on their back in our society.” Last week DeLaria even posted a short tongue-in-cheek “public service announcement” video on Instagram saying, “I just...

    Nineteen students at the University of Iowa have signed a Hollywood film deal for their remake of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, which the students deemed “too white.” The students remade the classic novel’s main character, Jay Gatsby, as a black, lesbian art dealer. The University of Iowa students developed a novel, titled, Gilded in Ash — a woke Great Gatsby remake — as part of an honors seminar, according to a report by Des Moines Register. The novel — which ended up catching the attention of three film producers — follows a black lesbian version of Gatsby, who takes interest in Daisy Buchanan, the love interest from the 1925 original story. With the copyright for the original Great Gatsby expiring at the end of 2020, University of Iowa professor Harry Stecopoulos tasked his students — who deemed the original novel “too white” — with rewriting the classic American story, according to a report by The Daily Iowan. “They changed it so dramatically, particular in relation to identity, to such an extent that it can’t help but be a commentary on...
    In his 35 years as a professor at the University of Georgia, Joe Fu has seen the university kick plenty of fraternities off of campus. Before last week, though, he’d never seen a frat shut itself down. But on Sept. 19, after racist text messages among their members went public, the university’s chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha did just that, announcing they would be self-suspending, something Fu told The Daily Beast was “almost unprecedented.” The racist and sexually graphic text messages targeted Arianna Mbunwe, a UGA junior who has amassed a large Twitter following for her willingness to call out both the administration and students over the wild spread of coronavirus on campus. Two weeks earlier, she had tweeted an anonymous tip that the fraternity was breaking COVID guidelines to host events, writing, “now Lambda Chi it would be a shame if someone found out about your little parties….”Larrison [email protected] a tip?

    The coronavirus pandemic has come with an odd paradox for the movie business. Efforts to stop the spread of the virus have shut down theaters across the country—putting to a sudden halt the way films are supposed to be experienced: on a big screen and in the company of others—just as Americans have been hungrier than ever for film and television entertainment to keep them occupied while physical distancing. Naturally, the new reality led to a surge in new subscriptions in streaming services. Then, at the same time that people found themselves locked inside and tied to their screens, a Minneapolis police officer brutally killed George Floyd, igniting a worldwide social justice movement that demanded an end to police brutality and systemic racism. That pivotal moment of national introspection has also led to an increased appetite for aesthetic representations of marginalized people. Netflix unleashed a Black Lives Matter collection. The Criterion Channel put out a retrospective of pioneering Black filmmakers. Their logic made sense: Art is perhaps the greatest instrument through which we can understand the human experience. No wonder, then, it...
