Seattle Sue Comes Out

We lesbians in Seattle have long suspected it, and now it's confirmed:  Sue Bird is gay.

The stellar Seattle Storm point guard came out in an espnW story posted today.  Furthermore, Bird is dating openly gay Seattle Reign FC star forward Megan Rapinoe.

We suspected that, too.  My we're good.

How fortuitous for Bird and Rapinoe that they're both pro athletes playing in the same city in leagues with similar schedules.  The goddess of women's sports practically threw them together.  And if they tire of talking about sports, they can move on to other things they have in common, like beauty, wealth and fame.  Really, how could they not be an item?

As a Storm season-ticket holder, my only concern is how this relationship will impact Bird.  If love starts to make the ball handler butterfingered on the court, the Reign must do the responsible thing and trade Rapinoe.  To Beijing.

I arrived in Hollywood without having my nose fixed, my teeth capped, or my name changed.  That is very gratifying to me.

The Choice

Today's commentary in The Advocate addresses a popular question in the LGBT community:  Which would you prefer as president, Trump or Pence?

To me that's a choice between dysentery and mad cow disease.

Free to Pee, You and Me

In case you missed it, last week the group trying to destroy Washington's pro-transgender bathroom law had an appointment to submit petitions to get its initiative on the ballot.

The group cancelled the appointment.  It turned out Just Want Privacy hadn't managed to secure enough signatures to qualify for the election.

Bravo to my fellow Washingtonians who declined to sign.  Across the Evergreen State, you've made gladder bladders.

This Week's Quote

But the bigly event this weekend: Donald Trump finally met his BFF, Russian President Vladimir Putin. They’d never met before, and they could not take their beautiful blue eyes off each other.

Anglicans Say No More Conversion Therapy

The Church of England is taking a stand against conversion therapy, saying it has "no place in the modern world."

Neither does the monarchy, but the church let that slide.

Happy Twisted Independence Day

LGBT newspaper Gay San Diego posted this image today on Facebook as a Fourth of July offering, along with the words, "May all your beaches be open." Only a gay man would think of combining New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's beach scandal with "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"

If Only

Completely ignored by President Trump, Pride Month has come and gone.  If only that man would do the same.

Germany Takes Down the Wall

Lawmakers in Germany voted today to legalize same-sex marriage.  Germany was actually one of the first countries in Europe to legalize same-sex partnerships back in 2001, but it took until now to approve the whole enchilada.

Forgive me.  The whole schnitzel.
