"1. Is the internet the future?
2. Are businesses succeeding on the internet?
3. Are you finding success on the internet?”
Someday, I will be able to answer yes to all of these questions. Thinking of using this for the first day of IS 30: Internet and Society.
The Queen (1968): “The Queen was filmed in NYC in 1967 and released in theaters in 1968. In 1967 it was illegal for men to dress as women. The documentary follows a 1967 Drag pageant judged by Andy Warhol among others. It stars Jack Doroshow aka Flawless Mother Sabrina, Richard Finochio aka Rachel Harlow and Crystal LaBeija. Crystal went on to start The House of LaBeija pageants which was the premise of the 90’s documentary Paris is Burning.”
Watch the end (1:00:00) for a legendary read by Crystal LaBeija. “Crystal, where are you going? This is not the time to show temperament!”
We’ll never have it this good again.
The New Mutants #24-29

Classic in New Mutants. Been reading old comics lately. They are much more densely written because they use thought bubbles. In most contemporary comics, the characters’ thoughts are not rendered in this way: more explosions and flashy graphics, but less introspection. *sigh*
Via SmashTV: Taking the A train to fashion, indeed. Why has no one ever hired Mr. T to do New York Fashion Week or the Ebony Fashion Fair?
LATour MOOC Starts Today
Getting into Bruno Latour’s MOOC today. He’s got a Bill Nye thing going on.
"Keep Calm Drag On": I love these queens. Want to hear more about life in Gibraltar and in England.
John Carlos, 1968 Olympian, Speaks Out on LGBT Rights
DZ: Let me ask you this: How does it make you feel to have someone like Billie Jean King and all of these athletes—they’re white, brown, black; they’re either part of the LGBT community or they have friends or family members who are LGBT—and they see you as an inspiration. How does that feel?
JC: Well, it makes me feel good. You know, we can’t put labels or tags on one another. All we can say is that we’re just human beings. And we should try to remember, regardless of what your ethnic background is, or what your sexual preference is, or what type of food you like, it doesn’t matter. It just matters that we all have the right to be who we are in this society. And we need to keep fighting to make sure that there’s an even playing field for all people that are being oppressed.
