    An English Echo

    In a CNN opinion piece concerning the resignation of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, a British journalist argues that what sank the Conservative Party leader were two character flaws, namely a propensity to lie and an unwillingness to abide by the rules that bind everyone else.

    A white, straight, randy, conservative head of an English-speaking nation who lies prolifically and believes norms don't apply to him? Geez, I just can't think who he reminds me of . . .

    This Week's Quote

    Lindsey Graham is reportedly FURIOUS that he's been subpoenaed in Georgia where he tried to undermine the election results. He's yowled, "I shall NEVER testify, and if I do testify I shall not wear any of my Meemaw's fine JEWELRY! Do you HEAR ME?"

    Frustration on the Fourth

    The fact that the Supreme Court just took away a constitutional right has made this a tricky 4th of July. It's hard to celebrate Independence Day when we American women have lost a chunk of our independence.

    Perhaps at summer's end Americans will celebrate Labor Day by firing people.

    This Week's Quote

    Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It's beyond me.

    Deeper Doo-Doo

    After watching today's blockbuster Jan. 6 committee hearing, I wouldn't be surprised if Donald Trump calls his old friend Vladimir and offers to trade himself for Brittney Griner.

    Pride 2022

    Europe saw the very worst and the very best of the Pride experience yesterday.

    In Norway, a gunman killed two people and wounded 21 at a gay bar in the capital city of Oslo. The alleged shooter was a 42-year-old Norwegian citizen of Iranian origin. He's believed to be a radicalized Islamist with a history of mental illness, and had been on authorities' radar since 2015.

    Apparently he fell plum off.

    On the advice of police, the Pride parade was cancelled. But several thousand people marched spontaneously, waving rainbow flags and chanting in English, "We're here, we're queer, we won't disappear."

    Kudos to them for their defiance. As to chanting in English, perhaps the sentiment isn't as catchy in Norwegian.

    The prime minister and members of the royal family laid roses near the bar. Crown Prince Haakon told reporters, "We must protect the right in Norway to love whomever we want."

    I'm an anti-royalist, but I feel a sudden urge to curtsy.

    Over in the Polish capital city of Warsaw, thousands marched in the Equality Parade, reportedly the largest queer event in central Europe. Joining the Polish paraders were hundreds of Ukrainians, representing LGBTQ organizations from around that besieged nation.

    The joint Pride was a marvelous show of queer solidarity across borders—and a reminder of what will happen to the Ukrainian LGBTQ community if the Kremlin wins this war.

    Pride was born of struggle years ago in New York City. In Europe in 2022, there's still plenty of struggle to be had. If you attended a Pride this month and your greatest difficulty was choosing an outfit, please keep a thought for our compatriots, abroad and here in the States. We all hope for the day when, in every part of the world, a Pride struggle means nothing more taxing than trying to avoid your ex.

    A New Old Fight

    I'm a 58-year-old lesbian. An IKEA bookcase has a better chance of getting pregnant than I do.

    Nonetheless, for many reasons, today's overturning of Roe v. Wade means I'm about to join the battle for reproductive rights.

    The spirit's willing, even if the body's cranky.

    This Week's Quote

    The gay Log Cabin Republicans are very upset that Texas Repubs have kicked them out of the party. The Log Cabin folks have issued the statement, "But we're bigoted, lying idiots too! We love Trump! We hate ourselves! We're like Ted Cruz only with bowties! Isn't that enough?"
