The Subversive Joy of Lil Nas X’s Gay Pop Stardom — A peek into a hot boy summer filled with new highs, disappointment and growth. Coming out, for Nas, was a recalibration.

How Instagram Is Ruining the Livelihoods of Trans Porn Stars - Tech conglomerates like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are deplatforming trans performers at an alarming rate.
