Elena Kagan Out by a Nose

In our most read Snippets in recent times, we asked readers if they would confirm Elena Kagan as a U.S. Supreme Court justice if they were a U.S. Senator. Almost the majority of readers, 47% percent said “No,” 41% said, “Yes,” and 11 percent are “not sure.” This was also the largest participation we have ever gotten in our polls, however, this was the first time no reader left an additional comment.

The Harlem Renaissance: As Gay as it was Black

"The Harlem Renaissance: As Gay as it was Black" exhibit continues through Wednesday, June 30 at Florida Atlantic University in Baton Rouge, FL. The title comes scholar Henry Louis Gates, who once said that the Harlem Renaissance was "…surely as gay as it was black, not that it was exclusively either of these."

The exhibit chronicles the leading gay participants in the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s including writers such as Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston; singers Ethel Waters, Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith; dancer Josephine Baker; and comedian Jackie "Moms" Mabley.

Women — often White, European and "of a certain age" — flock solo to Senegal's shores year-round for what one hotel manager called "the three 'S's: sun, sea and sex."

“It’s a question of survival. Life is hard. If I didn’t have these women, I’d be struggling," said Moussa, a 31-year-old dreadlocked drum player who has been "dating" female tourists since 2003.

Shock at Senegal Gay Jail Terms
