Don't discriminate


Letters to the Editor

Hope Thomas
The Marriage Equality Rights for Oklahoma movement was launched to give hope and accomplish civil equality rights to the many people in this state oppressed by being discriminated against for sexual orientation. It is a movement to bring awareness on gay discrimination to all communities and also say it’s never too early or late to make a change.

From closet to community: part two

How taking a stand carved out OKC’s gay district.


News

James Cooper

Editor’s note: This is the second of a two-part series highlighting events in Oklahoma City around which a gay community rallied and coalesced. Much of the reporting is based on Aaron L. Bachhofer’s 2006 dissertation, “The Emergence and Evolution of the Gay and Bisexual Male Subculture in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 1889- 2005” and recent interviews.

Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)

Viewer, watch!


Western

Rod Lott
Is there a title more intriguing yet baffling than the punctuation-heavy Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)? Don't answer that. The important thing is just that the 1967 Italian cult favorite now has been unleashed uncensored on Blu-ray from Blue Underground.
