From: Deep Dish
August 19, 2008, DEEP DISH was born, and I want to thank all of my readers for their continued support during this fabulous blogging adventure. Since I originally began DEEP DISH in order to promote my first novel, I thought it would be fun to celebrate this special occasion by sharing "a few" of my favorite works of literature (in random order). And hopefully during this yearlong exploration of my bookshelves, many of you will discover some groovy books worth reading.
Tales of the City
The first novel in Maupin's beloved series about the LGBT and straight denizens of 28 Barbary Lane in San Francisco (I bought my paperback copy in 1983).

Waterloo Road Star
Christopher William "Chris" Geere (born 18 March 1981) is an English actor. He is perhaps best known for his role as King Edvard/Eddie in the The Prince and Me sequels, and for playing the lead role of Jimmy Shive-Overly in the FX/FXX comedy You're the Worst.
“I decided to be heterosexual because I felt like that’s the life God intended me to live."
Less than a year after saying she “doesn’t agree” with the LGBT “lifestyle,” former American Idol contestant La’Porsha Renae has made some surprising statements about her own sexuality.
Earlier this week, Renae, who finished as runner up on the final season of Idol, got in a Twitter argument with a user after they called her out for being homophobic.
“Phobia is a fear. I’m not afraid of homosexuals, nor do I hate them. I respect and love EVERYONE,” the 23-year-old singer clapped back.

An hour later, another user blasted her for saying being gay was a “choice,” to which she responded: “You’re wrong to think it’s not a choice for some… because it was for me.”
You're wrong to think it's not a choice for some....because it was for me. #Truth https://t.co/qHPqu4eJjN
And the bigger picture of my statement was that homosexuals should be loved and respected, not dehumanized...not whether/not it was a choice https://t.co/qHPqu4eJjN
The user then pressed her to clarify what she meant and Renae revealed that she’d previously identified as a gay woman.
@JessicaLandd15 I chose to be heterosexual after being homosexual for 2 years. I chose a belief system that felt TRUE to my spirit. #TRUTH
In April 2016, Renae landed in hot water for making homophobic comments when a reporter asked her what she thought about Mississippi’s anti-LGBT House Bill 1523.
“I am one of the people who don’t really agree with that lifestyle,” she responded. “I wasn’t brought up that way. It wasn’t how I was raised.”
“But I do have a lot of friends and a lot of people that I love dearly who are gay and homosexual and they’re such sweet, nice people. We should just respect each other’s differences and opinions and move on.”
Renae later apologized, saying she “was just trying to honestly answer a question that actually caught [her] off-guard.”
In a recent email to the Huffington Post, the singer elaborated on her Twitter remarks.
“Let people believe what they want to believe about themselves,” she wrote. “Life can be a complex thing. It’s not always black or white. I took a journey and became more grounded in my faith, and decided that I wanted to live a heterosexual life.”
“I decided to be heterosexual because I felt like that’s the life God intended me to live. My response to your skepticism is that many people walk many different strokes of life,” she continued. “Some people believe they chose homosexuality and some believe they didn’t. Who’s to say one is wrong? It’s not fair to generalize anyone’s sexuality or walk of life.”
While in reality Russians enjoy programs like Odin v Odin!, Muhtar’s Return and Let Them Talk, there’s a game bouncing around the digital halls of Twitter that has a decidedly different take.
We don’t know how these hashtag battles start, but we do know this one is funny as hell.

Oklahoma police are investigating after several shots from a pellet gun were fired at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center in Tulsa on Monday.
A surveillance video shows several shots were fired from a white four-door truck at around 12:20 a.m.
According to Tulsa World, later that day, a man walked into the center yelling profanities at the staff.
U.S. News reports:
Tulsa police said 13 pellets were found around the front door and windows of the center. The pellets did not penetrate the reinforced window but marked the first serious vandalism since Oklahomans for Equality opened the facility, according to Toby Jenkins, the center’s executive director.“I am sickened, yet not surprised, by the bullet holes that now riddle the front of the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center,” Geoffrey Brewster, Oklahomans for Equality board president, said in a statement. “They are the latest reminder of the deep-seated hatred some individuals have towards the LGBTQ community.”The center’s staff was harassed later the same day by a man who walked into the facility using abusive language. The man described himself as a veteran and yelled, “I wish you would all die,” according to Jenkins. Jenkins said the man quickly left as he approached him.“It was so brazen, I thought it was a joke,” Jenkins said. “I didn’t know him, but then I realized he was serious.”
Jenkins added that although the center has been harassed before, the Monday incident was especially bad because the staff was “already super tense and nervous” after finding the pellet-gun damage to the front windows.
In a statement, Oklahoma Democratic Party Executive Director, Sarah Baker said:
“This attack comes at a time where our own LGBTQ community is experiencing some of the most vitriolic and systemic hatred in decades. The recent actions of individuals and groups from the extremist far-right is not just a violation of one community; it is a violation of all communities in our state and across our country. This behavior goes against the very fabric of the principles of freedom which we claim to stand for as a nation.“Now is not the time for silence. Now is the time to stand up and speak out against intolerance. Now is the time to stand up for our friends and neighbors. We must not let actions like this go unnoticed or ignored. We must be vigilant in our efforts to protect those in our community.”

A report from KJRH:
From: Bear World
Undoubtedly, many gay, bisexual and trans women from the ages likely lived their lives miserable as they felt they had no other choice than to follow society’s expectations.
But no woman ever made history by following all the rules, and that is true of all 11 women on this list.
From Hollywood starlets to artists and activists, these 11 women made a huge impact on thousands of lives by daring to follow their hearts.
While we can never know the real truth about the personal lives about some of these women, and there is some debate and doubt over these secretive relationships, there is some evidence for all of them.
So check out these women, who may have been gay, bisexual trans or intersex:
Swedish actress who was discovered by gay director Mauritz Stiller.
She is described as ‘technically bisexual, but predominantly lesbian’ by her biographer Barry Paris. The assumption of her lesbianism was fueled by gender-confusion in dress and speech on screen and off screen.
Garbo always wanted to play male roles such as Dorian Gray, Hamlet, and St Francis of Assisi. She was socially more comfortable with women and gay men. 181 letters were found from her to her assumed lover, Mercedes de Acosta.
William Randolph Hearst
The trailblazing actor-director was just 24 when he ignited Hearst’s fury with the 1941 film Citizen Kane, inspired by the newspaper mogul’s real life. Hearst felt the film ridiculed his longtime mistress, Marion Davies, and even tried to purchase and burn all prints of the film. He refused to run ads for it in his papers and his defenders intimidated exhibitors with threats of blackmail, bad press and FBI investigations if they screened the film. Their efforts were largely successful: It took nearly a quarter-century for Kane to receive the critical and public acclaim it now receives.
“Hearst and Welles were proud, gifted, and destructive—geniuses each in his way,” said producer Thomas Lennon. “The fight that ruined them both was thoroughly in character with how they’d lived their lives.”
Coat of Many Colors
Dolly’s personal favorite song. Aside from the pathos of the story, what makes it so endearing is its authenticity.
