Richard Banner - The History of Angles Newspaper (Part B).mpg
 
10:00
Part B describes how Angles eventually became independent of the Vancouver Gay Community Centre and describes Angle's commitment to publishing information about Vancouver area gay/lesbian community organizations and publishing a monthly calendar. The difficulties and successes that Angles had in getting women's content and involvement as well as that of Vancouver gay/lesbian minority groups, including South Asian gays and lesbians, the leather, S+M, , and rubber communities and some of the flack Angles got for including them. Richard also discussed the Lesbian Sexuality Centerfold issue and the controversy it caused in gay male bars, some of whom dumped that month's issue in the trash.

DAY 96 - THE COOLEST LESBIAN BAR IN TOKYO! レズビアン
 
19:08
Open me ↓ ↓ ↓ DAY 96 - THE COOLEST LESBIAN BAR IN TOKYO! レズビアン // 14.01.2017 Nearly 20 minutes of us showing around Tokyo ?!?! Ummm, YES please !!! So today was very fishy (pun intended)... We started our morning at Tsukiji fish market. We spent a good hour here, sampling out all of the random delicacies. It is simply a foodie heaven and great to venture out with your camera if you want to see a real local way of life here in Tokyo. After seeing the fish icecream, we ran to Shinjuku :P. This is one of the busiest and most popular districts here. There is a huge nightlife (which we will to later), many shops, restaurants and of course karaoke...always karaoke. We hit the pause button on Shinjuku during the late afternoon, to hop on the train to Shimokitazawa. This is a small, cool hipster area of Tokyo. You can find many alternative thrift shops and nice trendy restaurants. You can get here by simply catching a train from Shinjuku station As we discussed, we managed to buy a bus ticket to Kyoto for half the price of a bullet train. Honestly, we can't see the benefit of buying a japan rail pass (even with the unlimited travel). Having to use the pass in 7 consecutive days puts a restraint on your time. The bus is waaaaaayyyy cheaper, you can pick how long you wan't to stay in one place and when you leave. Obviously if you wan't to ride the bullet train for the experience, then that's understandable. Maybe we will do this next time we visit. Anyways here is the link to the bus company we used https://willerexpress.com/en/ In the evening we headed back to Shinjuku to check out the gay nightlife of Tokyo....It was crazy. We thought that Tokyo's scene would be very reserved; with a few underground bars and clubs but every club was bursting with energy. The lesbian bar called Bar Goldfinger (amazing name!) was WILD!. Everyone was talking about how Katy Perry spent her new year there and we didn't doubt it. The place was full of eccentric people and karaoke carried on until the early hours. This place was for woman only (sorry boys). We ended the night in a nearby club called Arty Farty. The entry was free and the music was great. We didn't even spend that much money downing tequila shots all night. So on that note.... #cheerstofreedom Instagram: @Beer4Breakfast2 Twitter: @Beer4Breakfast2 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/beerforbreakfast2/ Twitter: @Beer4Breakfast2 Vimeo: https://www.vimeo.com/beer4breakfast2 Website: https://www.contactbeerforbrea.wixsite.com/cheers Email: contactbeerforbreakfast@gmail.com

London WORLDPRIDE PARADE DAY Scenes (7)  7TH JULY 2012 Lesbian and Gay Pride

London WORLDPRIDE PARADE DAY Scenes (7) 7TH JULY 2012 Lesbian and Gay Pride. Pride London Pride London is the name of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender registered charity which arranges LGBT events in London, most notably the annual gay pride parade which is held in June/July. Pride London is a registered charity. The organisation is run by volunteers (including the board of directors). The stated aim of Pride London is to produce a highly professional Pride Festival and an annual Pride Day comprising a Parade through central London, a politically based Rally and free entertainment in central London. Parade Large numbers of LGBT-friendly people (including a significant number of family, friends and supporters) from all walks of life take part in the parade. Since 1991, the Friends of Dorothy Society of Change Ringers have rung the bells of the church of St Martin in the Fields in Trafalgar Square during the morning of Pride, and as the parade passes through. For many the most iconic image is of a long rainbow flag, in 2006 this was carried by members of the Metro Centre. In 2010 it was jointly carried by EDF Energy and Tesco's staff network groups. Since 2006 Regent Street and Oxford Street have been closed off to allow the parade to pass through. This is seen by many in the LGBT community as a sign of wider acceptance, although the parade once marched down Oxford Street illegally in protest in the 80s. History Pride has been organized by several organizations since the first official UK Gay Pride Rally which was held in London on the 1st July 1972 (chosen as the nearest Saturday to the anniversary of the Stonewall riots of 1969) with approximately 2000 participants. The first London gay marches were in November 1970 with 150 men walking through Highbury Fields in North London. The controversy of Section 28 from 1979 lead to numbers increasing on the march in protest. In 1983 the march was renamed "Lesbian and Gay Pride" and in the 1990s became more of a carnival event. There were large park gatherings and a fair after the marches up until 2003. Pride London itself was formed in 2004. Since 2004 a political rally in Trafalgar Square has been held straight after the parade, and more recently Pride London has organised several other events in the centre of London on Pride Day including in 2006 'Drag Idol' in Leicester Square, a women's stage in Soho and a party in Soho Square. In 1992 London was selected to hold the first Europride with attendance put at 100,000, London again held Europride in 2006 with an estimated 600,000 participants. In 2004 it was awarded registered charity status. .´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸ CLICK HERE to view all the Videos/photos we've uploaded: http://www.youtube.com/user/WestEndNews/videos .´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸

"I'm a lesbian Montreal" English version

More information: imalesbianmontreal.over-blog.com If you liked it and if you think of places that could show it, don't hesitate to let me know! To contact me: tina.fichter@hotmail.fr "I am a lesbian" is what the 22 Montreal women proudly and eloquently affirm in Tina Fichter's documentary. Behind the statement lie their experiences, their perspectives and their unique lives. The stories are personal and sensitive, proud and engaging. However, it is the words, "I am a lesbian" that are at the centre of the film, giving voice to the often ignored and unheard. These words are a testimonial to the power of self-identification.

True Grit - Trudeau at Homosexual Parade
 
05:04
True Grit is a 1969 American western film. It is the first film adaptation of Charles Portis' 1968 novel of the same name. The screenplay was written by Marguerite Roberts. The film was directed by Henry Hathaway and starred Kim Darby as Mattie Ross and John Wayne as U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn. Wayne won his only Academy Award for his performance in this film and reprised his role for the 1975 sequel Rooster Cogburn. Historians believe Cogburn was based on Deputy U.S. Marshal Heck Thomas, who brought in some of the toughest outlaws. The cast also features Glen Campbell, Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper, Jeff Corey and Strother Martin. The title song, sung by Campbell, was also Oscar-nominated. ‘Love them, accept them, befriend them’: Trudeau continues B.C. tour at Vancouver Pride A weekend tour of British Columbia continued for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday as he spoke at a Pride breakfast in Vancouver before marching in the annual Pride parade. He told the audience gathered at the Junction Pub in Vancouver’s Davie Village that while many places in the world could do with more tolerance, Canada should move beyond simply tolerating the differences in its communities and choose to love them. “No religion in the world says ‘Tolerate thy neighbour,’ it’s love them, accept them, befriend them,” Trudeau said in front of a rainbow-coloured banner. Trudeau was flanked onstage by longtime Vancouver Centre MP Hedy Fry and PFLAG Canada’s Vancouver chapter president Colin McKenna. McKenna thanked Trudeau for the apology the prime minister offered to the LGBTQ community in the House of Commons last November for decades of discrimination. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-trudeau-continues-bc-long-weekend-tour-at-vancouver-pride-2/ Trudeau awarded for LGBT advocacy: ‘I will fight with you’ Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed to continue advancing the homosexual, bisexual, lesbian and and transgender agenda when receiving an award Thursday night from the homosexual activist lobby group, Egale Canada. “I am on your side. I will fight for you, and I will fight with you,” Trudeau told those gathered at the Toronto Hilton for the Egale Identity Gala, according to Canadian Press. “Our entire government is committed to full equality for the queer community. You have my word on that.” Trudeau received a standing ovation from the crowd in the rainbow-hued hotel ballroom as he went up to receive Egale’s inaugural leadership award for LGBTQ advocacy. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/trudeau-awarded-for-lgbt-advocacy-i-will-fight-with-you Stop the Censorship Conspiracy between Facebook and Youtube We would like to bring to your attention a very serious attempt to squash freedom of speech by Facebook and YouTube. The Facebook page "theycan't" has used modern book burning worse than anytime in our history and conspired to take Jim Rizoli and others off YouTube, here is their recent braggadocio off their Facebook site and the progress report against video producer Jim Rizoli by the "theyCan't" people. https://www.change.org/p/keep-the-internet-free-of-censorship-stop-the-censorship-conspiracy-between-facebook-and-youtube Russia appoints actor Steven Seagal as 'special representative' The Russian Foreign Ministry said Saturday that it has appointed American actor Steven Seagal as a “special representative” for Russian-American humanitarian relations. “The task is to promote the further development of Russian-American relations in the humanitarian sphere, including interaction in the field of culture, art, public and youth exchanges and more,” the ministry said on its official Facebook page, according to a CNN translation of the post. The ministry also said the position is comparable to that of a United Nations goodwill ambassador. ADVERTISEMENT Seagal became a Russian citizen in 2016. He is reportedly close with Russian President Vladimir Putin and attended his swearing-in ceremony in May. http://thehill.com/policy/international/russia/400405-russia-appoints-steven-seagal-as-special-representative-on

Reclaiming Queer Arab Stories: A Lecture & Conversation with Saleem Haddad
 
01:41:06
March 20, 2017, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada From the images of ISIS throwing gay men off towers in Syria to the media rhetoric following the Orlando nightclub shootings in 2016, over the last several years LGBTQ Arabs have found themselves at the crossfires of global ‘clash of civilizations’ discourses. Drawing on the works of queer Arab activists, as well as his own personal experience, Saleem Haddad will examine the challenges facing queer Arabs in reclaiming their own narratives. He will discuss the different ways his novel, Guapa, has been received around the world, examine the impact of Israeli government ‘pinkwashing’, and survey the growing xenophobic discourse about the ‘homophobia’ and ‘misogyny’ of Muslim and refugee communities in Europe and North America. Through this, he will discuss what the global rise of the far-right means for LGBTQ politics, and how LGBTQ Arabs have begun to fight back. SPEAKER Saleem Haddad was born in Kuwait City to an Iraqi-German mother and a Palestinian-Lebanese father. He graduated from Queens University in Kingston, Ontario in 2005, and has since worked with Médecins Sans Frontières and other international organisations in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, and Egypt. His first novel, "Guapa," was published in 2016, a political and personal coming-of-age story of a young gay man living through the 2011 Arab revolutions. The novel received critical acclaim from the New Yorker, The Guardian, and others, and was awarded a Stonewall Honour in 2017. Haddad was also selected as one of the top 100 Global Thinkers of 2016 by Foreign Policy Magazine. He currently divides his time between London and the Middle East. MODERATOR Adel Iskandar is an Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Global Communication MA Double Degree progran at Simon Fraser University. He is the author, coauthor, and editor of several works including "Egypt In Flux: Essays on an Unfinished Revolution" (AUCP/OUP), "Al-Jazeera: The Story of the Network that is Rattling Governments and Redefining Modern Journalism" (Basic Books), "Edward Said: A Legacy of Emancipation and Representation" (University of California Press), and "Mediating the Arab Uprisings" (Tadween Publishing). Iskandar's work deals with media, identity and politics and has lectured extensively on these topics at universities worldwide. His latest publication is the coedited volume "Media Evolution on the Eve of the Arab Spring" (Palgrave Macmillan). He is a co-editor of Jadaliyya and host of Status Audio Journal. This event was cosponsored by SFU’s Global Communication MA Double Degree (Global Communication at SFU), SFU School for International Studies (SIS), Institute for the Humanities at Simon Fraser University, SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement, the Centre for the Comparative Study of Muslim Societies and Cultures (SFU) (CCSMSC), SFU Department of English, and SFU World Literature. This event took place on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples for whom we are in grave debt, immense gratitude, and ceaseless solidarity. We thank them for their kindness in allowing us to live, work, and play in their ancestral, mortal, and eternal homeland.
