Column: Thank you, Meghan Markle.

Column: #Gaylor — when speculation goes too far

"We continue to watch cisgender and heterosexual artists (or artists who have yet to come out) benefit and profit from their support and enthusiasm for the LGBTQ+ community, yet artists who are within the community continue to struggle with gaining recognition for their own contributions. It is okay to analyze and absorb media and art through a queer lens, but to speculate over someone’s unconfirmed sexuality does nothing but darken the shadow that falls over those who do represent the queer community."
