Nasir Fleming of Danbury High School in Danbury, CT took the diamond-studded crown this past Friday (May 23) and was met with a standing ovation. “I was shocked to see how awesome and supportive my peers are,” Fleming told Queerty. “I received a decent amount of negative backlash, so I was surprised when I won.”
Fleming lives with an uncle and says although he’s not transgender, he hopes to send them a beacon of hope.
These television networks really like turning on the people who help them. In a awry turn of events over the last few months of the legendary RuPaul using ‘tranny’ and ‘shemale’ on his hit LOGO show ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race‘, the network has cut the use of anything that could possibly seem transphobic from the show. However, that has not stopped RuPaul from saying in his interviews that he thinks it’s stupid and the trans community needs to stop letting those six and seven letter words control their entire journey.
“Don’t you dare tell me what I can do or what I can say” Ru recently said in an interview with Marc Maron. “It’s just words. Yeah, words do hurt. ‘Words hurt me.’ You know what? Bitch, you need to get stronger. You really do. Because you know what? If you think, if you’re upset by something I said, you have bigger problems than you think. I’m telling you this.”
Shit hit the fan over the weekend when LOGO released a statement to BuzzFeed stating:
“These comments did not come from Logo. We are committed to supporting the entire LGBT community and will not feature any anti-trans rhetoric on our shows.”
Ru’s tweets in response were right on the money. Continue Reading
Was attendance lower this year or did you guys not take your phones?
For Sizzle Miami 2013 I was overloaded with photos and videos to choose from for all three days and ended up making multiple posts to keep up. But, this year it was best to wait until the end of the event to blog about it. The event did announce it was relocating to South Beach, send out safety notices, change the location back to downtown Miami, and blah blah blah. But, I genuinely still expected more online love for THE Miami Sizzle. The stars still came out as T.S. Madison, Carmen Carrera and comedienne Luennell are in the photos. Did you attend Sizzle 2014? Leave your thoughts below.
