Nearly 500 Mormons joined a Facebook event for a mass resignation from the LDS Church on Thursday to protest the recent excommunication of Kate Kelly and disciplining of John Dehlin, two prominent activists in the Mormon community.
NBC producers of Constantine are making a bisexual character straight. Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour, executive producer Daniel Cerone said Constantine’s sexuality isn’t an important part of his character and downplayed the character’s bisexual history as archived in 30 years of comic books.
In the comic books, Constantine alludes to past relationships with both women and men and is periodically depicted leaving the bed of male lovers. But NBC’s Constatine, played by Matt Ryan, doesn’t have any same-sex dates on his dance card at the moment, it seems.
And while Cerone is right in noting a few instances where Constantine was seen getting out of bed with a man, it was more than just "one or two issues." Throughout the comic, Constantine alludes to more than just a few sexual encounters with someone of the same sex.
It’s bad enough networks don’t create bisexual characters let alone when they "straightwash" one. Make your voice heard!

In 2002, spurred by the shuttering of a.Magazine, a small group of 20-and-30-something journalists and artists got together to fill the void by envisioning the kind of magazine we always wanted to read
We began meeting around a kitchen table in San Francisco that spring, and over snacks and beer, a vision slowly emerged. The magazine wouldn’t flinch at covering serious issues, but also wouldn’t take itself too seriously. It would cover Asian Americans in Texas, Kansas and Minnesota, not just the critical mass living in California and New York. It would feature emerging artists, thinkers and doers, not only the few established Asian Americans who’d gotten mainstream approval. It would be a magazine that looked beyond identity — we’d explore cultural issues while tackling what is Asian American by accident, by tangent or by happenstance.
Hyphen issue 1, which paid tribute to Asian American activism, was published in June 2003 … in tackling issues of culture and community with substance and sass, Hyphen has also flourished, becoming a media must for savvy Asian Americans.
