Kink Music Video of the Month: “Nightmare”

Halsey's Nightmare music video

Amazing and beautiful Halsey is back again with a hell of a music vid for her single, “Nightmare”.

The music vid features an all-woman cast that includes appearances by Cara Delevingne and Debbie Harry, as well as latex clothing, schoolgirl outfits and a red rope bondage spider web, with Halsey wrapped in nothing but red rope.

“Nightmare” is a timely feminist anthem, where Halsey angrily sings “I’m tired and angry, but somebody should be.” Another great line: “No, I won’t smile, but I’ll show you my teeth.”

World’s Only Transgender Bodybuilding Competition

It’s been twenty years since Charles Bennett took the stage to compete in bodybuilding. But at the age of 63 he’s now done something he’s never done before — compete as a man for the first time in what’s billed as the world’s only transgender bodybuilding competition.

Bennett and seven fellow competitors went before a crowd Saturday evening in the annual International Association of Trans Bodybuilders competition at a theatre in Atlanta. The competition first started in 2014 and has since drawn competitors from across the country and one from Russia.

Article: Pakistani Transgender People Are Running For Parliament

Trans activists take part in a demonstration in Karachi

Cast out, marginalised and even murdered, transgender people in Pakistan used to have to rely on their wits to survive. Now they are running for parliament.

The country is conservative and deeply religious and homosexuality is illegal, but it has nonetheless introduced laws that are at the global forefront of trans rights. Pakistan has officially recognised a third gender since 2009.

Laws were liberalised still further in March of 2018, with a wide-ranging piece of legislation that grants intersex people, eunuchs and trans men and women the option to self-identify their gender on official forms. A person born male can now hold a female passport. This new law lets people self-identify their gender on official documents and offers protection to 13 trans candidates in this week’s election.

Celebrate Bisexual Pride Day on September 23rd!

First observed in 1999, Bisexual Pride Day is observed every September 23rd by members of the bisexual community and their supporters.

This day is a call for the bisexual community, their friends and supporters to recognize and celebrate bisexual history, bisexual community and culture, and all the bisexual people in their lives.

This celebration of bisexuality in particular, as opposed to general LGBT events, was conceived as a response to the prejudice and marginalization of the bisexual persons by some in both the straight and greater LGBT communities.

Bisexual Pride Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Australia, as well as Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
