Ali has been on the run after being charged with the murders of 23-year-old Dwone Anderson-Young and 27-year-old Ahmed Said while the men were walking home from R Place, a gay nightclub at Boylston Avenue and East Pine Street on Capitol Hill, Seattle.

So yesterday’s post about LA Pride got few comments like ” Why the fuck do we need a parade? We can all marry in LA!” or “Why do gays have a parade in 2014, straights don’t have a parade?”.

Ok let’s do some education 101 here.

Stonewall

The parade has become a vehicle to showcase LGBT pride, a celebration, a manifestation of the “out-and-proud” mantra to put the lights on the LGBT community. But the history of the parade comes from less celebratory roots tied more towards political activism and protests.

On June 28, 1969, a riot broke out at the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in downtown Manhattan. Police had been known to raid the club from time to time, but on that night, the patrons fought back. A protest broke out, with police and community members clashing through the night, and for the rest of the week.

News : A Trans Woman On The Cover Of Time Magazine

TIME-Laverne-Coverx400_lead

Orange Is the New Black actress Laverne Cox becomes the first openly transgender person to appear on Time’s magazine cover.

Titled “The Transgender Tipping Point,” Time‘s cover story relates the recent rise in transgender awareness by highlighting the work and journey of trans individuals like star Laverne Cox, app developer Teagan Widmer, 11-year-old Mac Davis, and 17-year-old Ashton Lee.

“Transgender people — those who identify with a gender other than the sex they were assigned at birth, are emerging from the margins to fight for an equal place in society,” said Time‘s Katy Steinmetz in a press release. “This new transparency is improving the lives of a long misunderstood minority and beginning to yield new policies. … As the trans movement has gained momentum, opponents have been drawn in to fight, many of them social conservatives who cut their teeth and fattened their mailing lists opposing same-sex marriage. But perhaps the biggest obstacle is that trans people live in a world largely built on a fixed and binary definition of gender. In many places, they are unwelcome in the men’s bathroom and the women’s. The effect is a constant reminder that they don’t belong.

Congratulations to Laverne for this cover and for rocking that Hervé Leger blue dress and thanks to Time for the visibility they are giving to the trans community!

Watch Time’s behind-the-scenes video of Cox’s cover shoot below.

Chevrolet debuted two new commercials during the telecast of Sochi’s opening ceremonies. Both ads are promoting the brand’s Traverse model and feature LGBT families. The automotive giant’s new campaign is called “The New Us”.

The message is amazingly positive :

“What it means to be a family hasn’t changed, what a family looks like, has. This is the new us.”

Check out both ads after the jump!

At this unique moment in history, when we are seeing such rapid progress in the fight for equality in the West, we cannot be blinded to appalling crimes against humanity elsewhere. Today in Russia, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people are facing harassment, arrest and violence under a set of horrific new laws. For their sake, we must come together and start an uprising of love.

Models Colby Melvin and Brandon Brown ask for your help in this new video promoting global Pride Houses. A Pride House is a place for LGBT athletes, fans, and friends to meet and enjoy international sporting events. At the previous two Olympics, there was a Pride House in the host country. This year, Russia has forbidden the establishment of a Pride House in Sochi. In response, restaurants, bars, and clubs across the country are becoming Pride Houses in solidarity with LGBT Russians and donating $1 of every drink sold between 9pm and midnight on the night of the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony to the Russia Freedom Fund.

Find participating venues here.

You can also download Uprising Of Love on iTunes, a song written and sang by Melissa Etheridge for the event. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Russia Freedom Fund!

Check out the video and listen to a remix of the amazing song after the jump!
