pedestrian.tv // Queer, Female and Aboriginal: Surviving And Thriving As A Minority: Growing up in regional New South Wales, finding other queer people – much less Indigenous queer people – felt almost impossible.

Judge upholds bulk of lawsuit against alt-righters in Charlottesville after 'Unite the Right,' dismisses Peinovich | Southern Poverty Law Center: The decision, which relied on the lawsuit for its factual basis, didn’t draw any conclusions about the veracity of the allegations, only that it met the minimum legal standard to be allowed to proceed.
