Fuck Valentines Day! Celebrate a significant moment in Canadian queer history by honoring the country's only official gay holiday, Pink Triangle Day. Thirty-two years ago today, a court acquitted gay liberated magazine The Body Politic and the officers of Pink Triangle Press on a charge of publishing immoral, indecent and scurrilous material.

This past weekend marked a very significant anniversary in the history of gay rights in Canada. Thirty years ago, the Toronto bathhouse raids - probably as important to Canada's movement as Stonewall was in the US - went down, which saw the city face a massive, violent raid on four bathhouses that resulted in the arrest of 304 men. It remains one of the largest mass arrests in Canadian history, and came after a series of smaller but no less terrifying campaigns by Toronto police. Toronto gay activist George Hislop was quoted in Canadian gay lib magazine The Body Politic as calling the night “the gay equivalent of Crystal Night in Nazi Germany – when the Jews found out where they were really at.”

Remember this short film that I swooned over a half-year ago as "the best pornographic gay hipster short film I'd ever seen? It won TLA's Online Short Film Contest. Just in case you're curious.

I'm biting my tongue from "when you're super hot and still a bit under the radar, I'm not too sure how difficult publicly coming out really could be" kind of comments with regard to actress Amber Heard announcing she's a lesbian this weekend, because the main thing to take from the news is that it's definitely awesome Heard did this, and the more is always the merrier when it comes to open queers in Hollywood. Heard had said she had to ask herself if by being closeted, she was part of the problem in denying "millions of hard-working, tax paying Americans" their rights. Couldn't agree more. So way to go, Amber... and watch out Portia diRossi: There's a new hottest-lesbian-in-town (and she's funny too):

This 14 year old boy makes it clear that age ain't nothing but a number when it comes to understanding humanity and compassion. At a recent school board meeting in Michigan, openly gay student Graeme Taylor came to the defence of a teacher who had been suspended from work for disciplining an anti-gay student in a speech that exceeds in intelligence and comprehension anything we've seen from 95% of American politicians. Its awe inspiring and thankfully someone caught it on video. Start your Monday off right:

I stand corrected regarding yesterday's suggestion that this was the viral video of the year. One day later, it's been upstaged by these classics. Thanks to Matt D to alerting me to one the most hilarious (and unintentionally?) gay things the internet's ever seen... and perfect viewing material to arrive home from Europe to. Seriously please watch this now:
