The Bulletin: All the LGBTQ+ News You Need From the Week of 3/27/22
Hello again! This is “The Bulletin” a new weekly digest of top stories selected by The Advocate’s staff. Today’s issue was curated by me, Alex Cooper. I’m the digital director of Advocate.com, and I manage the content on the website. Here’s a little about what I selected.
The week began with actor Ariana DeBose making history as the first queer woman to win an acting Oscar (that moment happened before the slap).
We also published several news articles and commentary pieces around Transgender Day of Visibility, including an op-ed on one person’s reflection on race and gender. President Joe Biden came out in support of trans kids in the country, denouncing anti-trans bills that have been passed in some states.
Former President Donald Trump also made the news over an exchange with gay supporters at his Mar-a-Largo resort in Florida — yes, that same Florida from the “don’t say gay” law. Actor Ezra Miller also made the news twice this week: Once, for an incident at a karaoke bar and again, for what allegedly happened afterward.
In unfortunate news, we covered the death of a 19-year-old trans woman who authorities say was killed by her father. She was the eighth trans victim of fatal violence reported this year.
The Advocate was also recognized Saturday for its coverage by the LGBTQ+ rights organization GLAAD. You can check out more about our win at the end of “The Bulletin.”
Thanks for reading and for your continued support!
