QUOTES “This is something that the intersex community has been pushing for for probably 25 years.”

“It speaks to what it means to say that our bugs and our viruses, the things that make us different, are attributes, they’re features. We don’t need to be reprogramed or deprogramed. We’re fine how we are. We,too, are Americans.” – Out actress/singer Janelle Monáe on Stephen Colbert’s TV show about her new album “Dirty Computer.”
“On ‘Pose’ we almost take for granted that we go to set everyday and there are trans people in front of the camera and behind the camera, creating a world in which trans women of color are centered in this way. And that’s a rare gift.” – Trans writer/producer Janet Mock to The Wrap on the breakthrough FX drama “Pose.”

“They’re A+ neighbors. They’re always engaged. Always people you could go knock on their door, call them. Email them. Just the most wonderful people,” a shocked David Rankell told KCBS2 about his gay Sherman Oaks neighbors, Tom Boulet and Ken Coll. The couple was found in the early morning of July 24 with multiple stab wounds. They were rushed to a hospital where they are in critical condition but stable condition after surgery. They are expected to survive. The couple’s adopted 21-year-old son Matthew Boulet was arrested outside their home where he allegedly calmly confessed to stabbing his fathers with a pocket knife after an argument, according to LAPD investigators. Boulet was home from college for summer vacation. “Whatever happened with Matthew going over the edge like that -- that it’s all going to be rectified in some way where everyone will heal,” neighbor Florence Riggs told KABC7. “Tom and Ken have been very significant on our block, great models of parenthood.” LAPD Lt. Mike Kozak told reporters that authorities are looking into whether Matthew Boulet may have mental illness issues. “He was very nonchalant when he said he had stabbed his two fathers and that he suffered a wound while doing so,” Kozak said. “He was very calm about it.” Later LAPD officers walked the couple’s two dogs, who had been cooped up inside the house since the early morning. Neighbors are apparently looking after the dogs as the couple recuperates. The son is expected to be charged with attempted murder.
