Who you are is more important than all the whats that you can be. I think that, if we tried to look at the world keeping that top of mind right now, then, perhaps, we might do better.
Today was A Day Without Immigrants in San Francisco. Now, I am not 100 percent sure that it was, indeed, a day without immigrants ’round these parts because most immigrants have to work in this expensive city and all around the Bay Area. At the very least, I am certain that it was a day […]
Madame X is coming soon. Madonna is due to kick off her 11th concert tour, an all-theatre trek, next week, on Sept. 17 in New York City, before hitting Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles (LA❌!), Boston, Philadelphia, Miami Beach, pausing for the holidays, then resuming in the new year in Lisbon, before taking residency in […]
What I like about [Julián Castro] is that he is offering all of us a voice and a perspective, a cultural point of view, that has been missing in the conversation and in representation, at this level and down the line. I find him to be unapologetically himself, and that means some of us in […]
Six Seven more of our transgender family and friends have been murdered in this country since I asserted my Pride a few weeks ago in June, when I first wrote about Dana Martin, 31; Jazzaline Ware, age N/A; Ashanti Carmon, 27; Claire Legato, 21; Muhlaysia Booker, 23; Michelle “Tamika” Washington, 40; Paris Cameron, 20; Chynal […]

We were supposed to be in the kitchens, exchanging recipes…in the schools, sharing stories and perspectives…in parks, inviting one another to play fun new games. Instead, we have spent the better part of the last decade on social media, stirring the pot. Stirring shit. Think about that for a […]
Que bonito dia para nacer.
I am from Peru, so I get to be mad at this cultural caucaciousness and deafness of tone. This week, Fox aired the latest episode of BH90210, its limited meta-heightened reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210, an ep that was so preposterous. On this Aug. 21 installment, meta Tori Spelling travels to “Peru,” as the IRL actress put […]
Most fights are stupid – that’s the starting point right there – and all of ’em get messy. This is not about politics. It’s about ethics. This week, while sticking up for a friend, I failed to rise to the occasion and show compassion for someone else; a person, who probably needed kindness more than […]
