lady_ganesh: Iwabuchi and Kamiy from Chintsubu, my favorite talking penis manga (chintsubu)
Nominations are open! I did Revenge, Petshop of Horrors, and Blackadder (someone else said they were nomming Legal Drug).

The good

I just put this bread in the oven. It smells yummy.

The bad

Gay Ugandans leave their country in fear.

States in the US, in South Dakota in particular, are taking Indian kids from their homes and tribes and putting them in white foster families.

Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation keeps track of charities and donation drives in Pine Ridge Reservation, an Oglala Sioux reservation in South Dakota, if that last segment makes you feel particularly angry and/or helpless.

The awesome

A slideshow of images of Edo-period Japanese art with an interview with the curator of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts' new show. See how many influences you can spot!

Rest in peace, Frank Kameny, who fought the feds over his firing from the government for being gay. In 1957.

He kept over 70,000 documents over the years, the Smithsonian has the archive.

Cleolinda's update/summary of the Yes to Gay YA issue is well worth reading.

Here, have a list of SF/Fantasy YA with gay characters.

My Kindle screen died, which is sad, but I have a replacement, so there is that. I got it a fancy new case in an attempt to improve my Kindle karma. IT IS CUTE, GUYS.

Say Yes to Gay YA! Rachel Manija Brown and Sherwood Smith share their story of an agent who would only accept their novel if they made one of their characters a little less gay. This is the LJ post, and there's a mirror at the Publishers Weekly blog.

I've been meaning to pass this on: Maevele, who you may have seen in passing in this journal, needs a hand. Please read/pass on/give if you can/are comfortable.

Second is a question about criminal procedure in the UK. I know here on this side of the pond, if your stuff gets stolen, it can end up as evidence and you won't get it back for a while. I'm assuming this is the same in London as it in the US, but am not sure. Anyone know?

Gareth Halfacree is raising money so Bletchley Park can buy Alan Turing's papers.

You know the old cliche 'if it wasn't for X, you'd be speaking German right now?' Well, if it wasn't for Alan Turing, the Nazi Enigma code might never have been broken. Turing also heavily influenced our thinking about computers and artifical intelligence, and contributed to mathematical biology. He was pretty much an amazing guy. If Bletchley Park doesn't get the cash, the papers will probably go into a private collection and be lost for years, if not forever. Please check it out, thanks.

From [personal profile] axelrod:

I don't think celebrating Spirit Day is wrong - let me be clear on that. I don't think gestures are worthless. I do think it can do things, however briefly, for morale. I do think it can send a message in some cases: "btw, I give a shit about this issue, and I probably won't let you get away with any homophobic bullshit around me" and "if you're queer, I support you".

But let's not fool ourselves.

EDITED to debork HTML.
lady_ganesh: Anissa has a test tube and great enthusiasm. Be afraid. (trust me (KKM))
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!
