Respectfully, if a bucket of glue or a stale cracker is on the ballet challenging Councilmembers Sepi Shyne, Lindsey Horvath or John D’Amico, either will have my vote.

Quotes from the winners of Wednesday night’s Rainbow Key Awards in West Hollywood. “When we started this company, we really saw to create a space where queer experiences were not simply relegated to stereotypical side characters, but where the full community — and I mean the full community — had an actual space where representation could be full and authentic and unapologetic, and a place where the full breadth of the humanity of the community could be seen and shown and embraced.
