"...Segal Theatre Center. We went because we're both members of NoPassport, a Pan-American theatre coalition/collective founded by Svich in 2001 to foster cross-cultural diversity and difference in the arts, and because it gave us an extraordinary opportunity to sit face to face with our peers and talk about subjects like identity politics, queer theatre, intercultural audiences, theatre and democracy, and border stories..."

"...We head into Austin's Pride Month on unstable queer ground. Our president and his team of goons have declared war on the LGBTQ community – from his Twitter declaration banning trans folks from the military (which should garner a much bigger conversation about the role of the military and who it frequently targets ...) to the Department of Justice arguing that Title VII (of the Civil Rights Act) does not apply to sexual orientation..."
"...To you, that phrase may sound vaguely romantic -- suggestive of some Hollywood version of the noble dissident, driven from his homeland by political repression, stoically enduring a lonely existence on foreign soil -- but to Tim Miller, the phrase has a cold and bitter ring. See, the nationally recognized creator of Shirts and Skin and My Queer Body is staring life in exile hard in the face nowadays..."

"...Members of QueerBomb, Austin's renegade counter-Pride, and members of the official Austin Gay and Lesbian Pride Foundation board agreed to a sit-down together in the offices of The Austin Chronicle last week. This felt monumental..."
"...Days later, same-sex marriage suffered a blow from the state's Supreme Court (see "Meanwhile, in Houston"). Though Texas seems to have narrowly escaped an anti-trans bathroom bill, it's been a brutal eight months of battle for queer and transgender Texans that has left many feeling scared, angry, and uncertain of the state they call home...."
"...MS. SANDRA BERNHARD: WE'RE STILL QUEER HONEY! From the King of Comedy through Roseanne to Ally McBeal, Will & Grace, and the latest Scissor Sisters vid, she's still queer, damn it! And this year, she's going to be here, damn it! Without Sandra, you're nothing..."

"...On the eve of Pride Weekend, I'm too busy being grateful for our amazing community, proud of my queertastic self and fabulous friends, and awed by the epic lineup of events happening now through Sunday to let the typical trash fire that is 2017 get me down (see "Protecting the LGBTQ Community When the State Attacks," Aug. 25)..."

"...I planned to make this week's Gay Place celebratory – the official kickoff to Austin's Pride Week (please check out the amazing listings below and more online), and let me tell you, it's hard to be cheeky in the face of so much stupidity and hate. But isn't that what the other side wants? To scare us, make us retreat, to just disappear into glitter? Don't give them the satisfaction, because Pride Week is here and events all over town are celebrating what it means to be queer, QTPOC, trans, gender nonconforming, LGBTQIAS unicorns..."
