Gay power couple, Gigi Gorgeous, a transgender YouTube star, and her wife, Nats Getty, are clear about why they were in Davos in the Swiss Alps for the annual meeting of the global elite – to ensure LGBT+ rights were on the agenda.

The couple, who married in a lavish ceremony in California last July, have teamed up with Nat’s fashion designer brother, August, and their mother, Ariadne Getty, to push for LGBT+ equality from within the Getty oil dynasty. Continue Reading »

Film Review: The Grudge

Frances Winston reviews this reboot of Japanese horror film, Ju-On (The Grudge)

Directed by: Nicolas Pesce – Starring: Andrea Riseborough, Demián Bichir, John Cho, Betty Gilpin, Lin Shaye, Jacki Weaver

This was first announced in 2011 as a reboot of the 2004 Sarah Michelle Gellar remake of the Japanese horror film, Ju-On (The Grudge). Since that announcement, it has gone through a rather erratic development trajectory (I really don’t have a long enough word count to explain it here) so what we get is more of a sidequel than a reboot, as events here run alongside events in the original (American remake) movie, and its sequels (still with me – good).

(Reuters Health) – While only a minority of transgender youth who want puberty-blocking medicines receive this treatment, a new study suggests they may have a lower suicide risk when they get it.

Overall, about 17% said they had wanted to take drugs to help their outward appearance better match their gender identity when they were growing up. Continue Reading »

Mexican Ricardo Canabal gave up playing football when he was 21, unable to reconcile his sexuality with what LGBT+ campaigners say is a deep-rooted homophobia in the sport.

Now 35, he has felt able to return to the game he loves, founding his own team of gay players in one of Mexico City’s amateur LGBT+ football leagues. Younger LGBT+ players, he says, have often had an easier time.

“(Playing on the team) fills me with satisfaction,” said Canabal. “It feels like something special … it’s something unique of its kind, that few countries or few cities have.” Continue Reading »
