On the closing night of this year’s Kashish, Mumbai’s beautiful Art Deco Liberty Theater, run by the Hoosein family since 1947, was buzzing. India’s only transgender/hijra dance troupe brought the house down with their sequin-spangled Helen numbers. Former Mr Gay India, Sushant Divgikar was strutting the stage basking in the spotlight. And the entire theatre was on its feet as Rainbow Voices, an LGBT choir from Mumbai, all sleek in black and silver, some of the boys with heavy eyeliner and a flower tucked behind the ear Salma Sultan style, belted out Hum Honge Kaamyaab. It was a bona fide goosebump moment.Details
Paul Mooney could have easily been talking about Natives.
Ok, so, this white woman named Rachel Dolezal did a reverse Michael Jackson and became a black woman named Rachel Dolezal.
Thing was, she wasn’t cool with just being some newly black woman named Rachel Dolezal. She wanted to be the blackest of the black women—became president of the NAACP, told folks that she had black children, became an activist for black folks, wore her “natural” in kinky curls, and made many, many allegations that she was the victim of hate crimes because she was black. She was consistent at least—when she said that she was Native American, she said that she was also the Nativest of the Natives.Details

In elementary school I bought cafeteria school lunches, where the food was partially frozen and the pizza had the buoyancy of a rubber ball. When I got into junior high, I still bought cafeteria school lunches, but it was an upgrade. It was trading in a flip phone for an iPhone. They sold better snacks, decent pizza, and warm delicious chocolate chip cookies that I grew to love and spent my money on every single week until I thought those cookies were disgusting. Overall, junior high just had better food than elementary school. As soon as I went into high school I did a complete three- sixty and decided to bring food from home.Details
Former Spokane NAACP President Rachel Dolezal in one fell swoop managed to ignite furor over race, civil rights, leadership, integrity, reverse discrimination, media sensationalism, and even family squabbles. This is quite a feat for one person who, before the firestorm broke over her allegedly misrepresenting herself as a black person, headed one of the chapters of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations.Details

SAN FRANCISCO – Mildred Cordova thinks the time has come for her 74-year-old mother to become a U.S. citizen.
Cordova, 44, came to the United States from the Philippines in 2001. Her mother, Teresita Sarmiento, followed in 2010. While Cordova gained citizenship when she married a U.S. citizen, her mother still doesn’t have U.S. citizenship.
One of the biggest barriers her mother has faced as a lawful permanent resident rather than a citizen, says Cordova, is around access to health care.Details
