Get a sneak peek at Nike’s 2017 BeTrue line, coming June 1

BeTrue is featuring T-shirts, socks and four shoes
From: OutSports
Nike’s 2017 BeTrue line is again highlighted by the iconic rainbow.
 Nike’s annual BeTrue line is again being released to celebrate LGBT Pride Month. The 2017 line will be available online June 1.


NikeLab Air VaporMax BE TRUE:
A hand-dipped rainbow VaporMax Air unit grounds the future of Nike Air
in the iconic emblem of Pride.


 This year BeTrue is part of the company’s larger EQUALITY initiative, which has highlighted many voices speaking for equality including LeBron James, Megan Rapinoe, Serena Williams and Victor Cruz.


Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 BE TRUE:
 Reflective materials hold an iridescent palette reminiscent
of this running stalwart’s mythological namesake.
 While the line will be available on the company’s online store on June 1, the product’s availability in Nike stores across America will vary throughout June, in part to align with the local city’s pride celebration.


Nike Flyknit Racer BE TRUE:
The eight-color rainbow Swoosh honors the original 1978 Pride flag
 and the diverse LGBTQ spectrum it empowers.
This is the sixth year of the BeTrue line. According to Quinton Hawks, one of the founders of the line (along with Robert Goman and designer Shawn Ormsby) and the current head of the Nike LGBT & Friends Network, year six is something he hadn’t envisioned when they started the line.


The BeTrue socks are lots of rainbow.
 "It leaves me speechless most of the time,” Hawks told Outsports. “Six years ago we never thought it would be what it is today. We didn't even think it would still be around. After the first year, we didn’t even know if we were going to do it again. We did it a second year, and that was the year Jason Collins wore a #BeTrue shirt in the Boston Pride Parade, and it blew up on us. And that's when we realized we have something here."


Nike Classic Cortez BE TRUE:
The original running and sports style icon adds a
rainbow ribbon to exhibit pride in every step.
 They most definitely have something here. The line has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to LGBT-rights groups, and BeTrue has become a symbol of acceptance for many LGBT people in sports.


This year Nike’s BeTrue shirt goes white.
Outsports is proud to have BeTrue as a partner for our second annual Outsports Reunion, held this year in Denver during Pride.

8 LGBT Service Members Who Shaped American History

Grace Garner

Fannie Mae Clackum

Certainly, not the first to ever be kicked out of the military for being LGBT, Grace Garner and Fannie Mae Clackum, U.S. Air Force reservists during the late 1940s and early 1950s, were the first to successfully challenge their discharge.

When rumors started to circulate the two women were lesbians, the Office of Special Investigations basically entrapped the pair, which in turn gave the Air Force sufficient cause to boot them in 1952 dishonorably.

The duo, however, refused to accept their fate and demanded their case be heard in military court (court martial).

Eight years later, they won their suit. Their previous discharges were vacated. Moreover, they also earned back pay.

Ariana Grande: I'LL BE RETURNING TO THE INCREDIBLY BRAVE CITY OF MANCHESTER

From: Boy Culture
I worked with Ariana Grande (and met her brother Frankie) back in the day. I always liked her. I have a few friends who weren't fond of her professionally, and there are music fans who seem to view everything in life via a diva wars prism, but I must say I think whatever your opinion of Ariana as an artist, she has handled the tragedy of the Manchester bombing with heart and maturity.

Now, she is promising to return to Manchester to show terrorists that they will never win — and that is laudable.

More power to her.

“Whatcha Packin'”: Michelle Visage Sits Down With This Week’s Eliminated Queen

“Whoever told you that you’re not good enough was wrong."
From: NewNowNext
 She had trouble finding her smile, but no one can say she didn’t serve face.


 In the latest episode of Whatcha Packin’, Michelle Visage digs deep with this week’s chopped RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant, Nina Bo’nina Brown, about the highs and lows of his season 9 journey.

Rocking a bearded mug, Nina opens up about his crippling self-doubt during the competition. “I think that’s been a battle I’ve had for a while, because I was really surprised by the love that I did get from you guys on the stage,” he says. “It didn’t register to me. For some reason, it still wasn’t enough.”

After auditioning for the show five or six times, he still has trouble being proud of the fact he made so far.


So if Nina came back for All-Stars, what would he do differently? “Hopefully be stronger and really, truly believe that I am meant to be there,” he says.

“Whoever told you that you’re not good enough was wrong,” Visage insists. “You’re amazing.”

OutGames athletes felt lied to, while Miami steps up to save some sports

Chaos in aftermath of OutGames cancellation
By Chad Calais
From: OutSports
From beautiful South Beach, Florida, where gorgeous men and women stroll the boulevards and dance without a worry in the world, the LGBT community is in an uproar about the cancellation of the majority of the sporting events at the World OutGames in Miami, which were to start Friday.

The only world to describe the scene here in Miami is chaotic. However, in a bit of good news, volunteers along with the city of Miami Beach and other groups have banded together to salvage some sports that risked being canceled.

I was expecting to not only compete in the 10K and the marathon this week, but to also attend many of the cultural and social gatherings and to report for Outsports. When I turned my phone back on after arriving in Miami from New Orleans, I had an email from Cyd Zeigler at Outsports asking me what I thought about the cancellation of the games. That was the first instance I heard about the cancellation, but not the first notification I had received from the OutGames that day. I was still receiving emails about upcoming events, while organizers had already decided to cancel 90% of the events.

After checking in to my room at the National Hotel, I asked where the OutGames organizers were located, since the National Hotel was listed as the Host Headquarters of the OutGames. The staff knew nothing about anything associated with the OutGames. After talking to several other participants, including transgender duathlete Chris Mosier, I realized the Loews Hotel was the host hotel, as well as the location of the Human Rights Conference. After walking over to the Loews Hotel, there was a sign stating that the OutGames headquarters were now at 1210 Washington Street.

This address is indeed the OutGames headquarters, where four volunteers were handing out credentials in the foyer of an empty office building that is up for lease.

I immediately set forth to talk to as many participants as possible to get their take and opinions on the cancellation of the games. Confused and disappointed are the best ways to describe the feelings of the athletes, but they also feel like they were lied to for months by the OutGames organizers, who obviously knew the financial troubles they were having and didn’t announce cancellations until most of the athletes were either en route to Miami or already have arrived.

Thousands of athletes are ready to participate in an event that seems ghostly, with a headquarters in a foyer of an empty office, while their website is still sending emails advertising about upcoming events, even a day after the majority of the event has been canceled. I was able to talk to a local organizer who stated that most participants would get access to certain social events, like free admission to the Miami Gay Chorus. There was even talk of having the marathon run on Sunday, after the majority of athletes have left Miami.

I wanted to be fair in my report, so I reached out to Ivan Cano, the CEO of the OutGames. I offered him a chance to share his story about what happened to the games, about the late cancellation of the games, and about refunding athletes who have traveled long and far to attend the games. I also wanted his opinion on the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s office announcement of a fraud probe into the OutGames handling of the money. He did not respond to my email for an interview or even a response via email to our concerns.

In the midst of this travesty, the LGBT community is starting to rise together. One thing about the participants here in Miami, they will not allow this disappointment to keep them down for long. Another Facebook site, Miami World OutGames Alternative has risen to band the athletes together, to create events among themselves.

Organizations in Miami are starting to come together to support other events, even attempting to have a new schedule of events for the athletes. That is what is so unique about the LGBT community, especially LGBT athletes and their supporters. They will unite to create good out of a terrible situation, to improve the disposition that we all found ourselves in when we stepped foot in Miami.

The next 24 hours will be exciting to see how many groups band together to form events. At this point, it doesn’t even matter if there are awards or spectators, but the camaraderie of competing against others, then possible having a cold beverage to celebrate afterwards.

On Saturday afternoon, the city of Miami Beach issued a media release that detailed efforts to save some sports:

Since the World OutGames announced the cancellation of many of their activities yesterday, the City of Miami Beach along with the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) and the Miami Beach Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, has worked with the event's logistics organizers to restore many of the events that were planned.
In the last 24 hours alone, the Miami Beach Parks and Recreation Department was able to confirm and staff the Field Hockey tournament in the Flamingo Park soccer field on Monday, May 29 through Wednesday, May 31; the Soccer Finals in the Flamingo Park Stadium on Friday, June 2; and relocated the Indoor Basketball tournament to the Scott Rakow Youth Center on Sunday, May 28 through Monday, May 29.
City staff is working with the regular Lummus Park volleyball community to keep and manage the volleyball tournament as scheduled at the 7th Street volleyball courts from Tuesday, May 30 through Friday, June 2.
In addition, the city and GMCVB are welcoming all registered athletes and their families to a reception Wednesday night, May 31, at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden to express the true nature of Miami Beach hospitality.
The city is extremely proud of our business and cultural partners, which have stepped up to offer free and discounted admission and services to all OutGames attendees. The list of such partners includes the Miami Design and Preservation League, the Palace Bar, the Gaythering Hotel and the Gay Men's Chorus, which offered free admission to all OutGames attendees to their performance last night at the city's Colony Theater.
City staff has worked consistently for the past several months to assist the event producers with special events planning and permitting; fundraising efforts; relocating events to low or no cost venues; assisting with local partners to provide support and access; and providing financial support to cover police staffing costs. As a lead sponsor of the event, the City also waived all related special event and permitting fees for this event and provided cash sponsorship to the OutGames.
It’s great that the city is rallying and I will do my part. As a professional running coach, I will organize a 30-minute run every morning on the boardwalk between the National Hotel and the beach at 8 Monday through Friday for any runner, walker, or LGBT supporter. Please stay tuned to Outsports as we continue to update everyone as information becomes available.

Portland Hate-Crime Horror As Man With White Supremacist Ties Harassing Muslim Teens Stabs 3 Men, Killing 2 On Train

From: Boy Culture
Christian
 A white man shouting slurs at two teenage girls he perceived to be Muslim on a Portland, Oregon, train was confronted by three other passengers, who he then allegedly stabbed.

Two men, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, died of their wounds, and a third, Micah Fletcher, is expected to recover.


Victim Ricky John Best
 The alleged murderer has been identified as 35-year-old Jeremy Joseph Christian of North Portland, who has pretty clear ties to white supremacy and who it is alleged shouted that the woman should, “Get off the bus, and get out of the country because you don't pay taxes here.” He is also said to have shouted other, more vicious slurs.

He left the train and was arrested.


Why are the actions of the ironically named Christian not treated as terrorism? Why are white people not asked to condemn this or be seen as supportive of the attack? Why aren't we talking about a white-person terrorism problem? Or at least a white-male terrorism problem? Or even, considering the races of the men killed and the man who allegedly killed them, white-on-white crime?

The inequity is part of the false narrative that put Trump in the White House, and that is currently endangering the position of the United States as any kind of a world leader.

What happened is a sickening tragedy, full-stop, and look — it happened in liberal Portland. It can happen anywhere. (And it has yet to be acknowledged by the not-so-ironically-named White House.)

Debra Messing Teases How The “Will & Grace” Revival Will Deal With The Series Finale

We have questions
From: NewNowNext
 Will & Grace fans are gagging knowing that new episodes of the series are just a few months away—but any serious devotee is wondering how the writers are going to explain the original series ending.


 If you don’t remember, in the final episode Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) grow apart and remain estranged from each other for almost 20 years. They reunite when the series flash forwards and their children end up meeting each other in college, fall in love and are planning to get married.


 So will the revival just pretend that they stayed friends? What about their kids, will they be running around their apartment?

“All I know is that I was told that they’ve come up with a very creative way of dealing with how the show ended, and that it will be in real time,” Messing said during an appearance on The Bill Carter Interview on Sirius XM. “So it will be 11 years after.”


 Aside from hinting how the show will deal with the finale, Messing also talked about how she feels that this political climate is the right time for the NBC series to return—even if it is over a decade later.

“[We’ll talk about] social issues, political issues, and be outrageous,” she added. “And it seemed like there literally is no better time than right now for this kind of show that’s already welcomed, to come back and to try to make people think the way that we did 10 years ago.”


 So the series will take place in 2017 with Will and Grace still friends—can we suggest that their children be abroad with their husbands during the revival?

That leaves another question: What about Leslie Jordan? In the series finale Jordan’s character Beverly Leslie was blown off the balcony, leaving Jack his fortune. Hopefully the writers are coming up with a clever way to explain how Beverly survived all of these years later.


The new batch of episodes premiering this fall will reunite the original cast along with creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, who will serve as show runners. James Burrows, who helmed every episode of the original run, will return to direct. NBC had originally ordered a 10-episode ninth season but added two additional episodes—for an hour long Christmas episode—and the network hopes to up the number even more.

“It’s possible,” NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt told Deadline. “It’s my hope that we will have more than that.”

Messing’s full interview will run during The Bill Carter Interview on Sirius XM Monday, June 5th.

Below, watch a compilation of the best fun in the sun moments from Will & Grace.

Bigot Leaves Woman With Concussion In Horrific Anti-LGBT Subway Attack

The assailant screamed "Dyke!" while beating the woman and her girlfriend
From: NewNowNext

 Police have arrested a Brooklyn man who assaulted a woman and her girlfriend after yelling anti-LGBT slurs at them on the subway.


 The altercation occurred on the night of May 20, 2017 when Antoine Thomas, 27, got into a heated argument with one of the women on a Brooklyn-bound Q train. According to police reports, Thomas screamed, “Faggot! Dyke!” while purposely bumping into the pair.

When the victims tried to calm him down, he launched at them and beat one of the women until she fell to the ground unconscious.

The 24-year-old victim was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for a concussion, a broken eye socket and several cuts that required stitches.


Though Thomas fled the train after the attack, he was quickly apprehended by officers who arrested him on the spot. He was later charged for assault, menacing and harassment.

Officials said the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the attack, which means the charges against Thomas could be elevated to hate crimes.

Said the bandit as he looked over the two dashing men in their tattered clothing and tight rope work. “In this next contest, we’ll see which one of you is able to free themselves first. Winner of this gets all the glory and the losing Prince, but if you both lose then I guess the spoils go to me.” Prince Phillip looked to Prince Derek and huffed some behind his gag. He knew that competing to see who was better at what would only lead them into trouble…

Nyle DiMarco: Jamie Foxx was 'disrespectful to make up sign language' on Tonight Show

From: Entertainment Weekly
 A decision by Jamie Foxx to perform pretend sign language during a Tonight Show promo has raised the ire of one of the deaf community’s most prominent members.

Model/activist Nyle DiMarco, who won season 22 of Dancing with the Stars last year as well as America’s Next Top Model in 2015, tweeted that Foxx’s actions during a tease for Thursday’s show were “disrespectful” and lacked “cultural sensitivity.”


“How was this allowed?” DiMarco tweeted to The Tonight Show and host Jimmy Fallon.

Along with releasing a statement, DiMarco posted the segment via Twitter of Foxx faux-si
gning Fallon’s comments.

“We simply do not make fun at the expense of other cultures, especially those with a history of being marginalized. When we do this, progress takes a step backward,” he wrote in part. “What Foxx did on Fallon Tonight made our struggle that much harder.”




Foxx appeared on Fallon to promote his new Fox game show Beat Shazam.


UPDATE
It has been reported that NBC aired the promo sparingly and that it reached out to DiMarco after he expressed his displeasure on social media.

The White House Omitted Luxembourg’s Gay First Gentleman From NATO Spouse Portrait

It also got the year wrong
From: NewNowNext
 Gauthier Destenay cut a dashing figure at the NATO conference in Brussels last week: The husband of Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, Destenay appeared with France’s Brigitte Macron, Turkey’s Emine Erdogan, Queen Mathilde of Belgium and other spouses of heads of state at a dinner at the royal castle in Laeken.


 Photo agencies like Getty Images ran photos from the event, labeling all those in attendance.

But when the White House posted its portrait on Facebook, it left Destenay out.


 “I took these screenshots myself at 6:02PM on May 27, 2017,” Gay Writes posted. “The photo has been on Facebook for seven hours. Dozens of people have commented asking for a correction. It still has not been fixed.”

The post also cites the date of the event as “May 25, 2917.” Girl, we’re all trying to fast-forward through the next few years but that’s a bit much.
