Fast Five Fix: Jan 20

Don’t send those NC-17 photos just yet: an Australian tech site has revealed a serious security flaw in Grindr, the most popular gay male “meet market” app that can put your private conversations — and intimate photos — at risk of being hacked. Of course, if you’re a New York congressman, that could just give you a good “out” if your photos are found. However, best to put down the phone and check out these five stories:

  • Honduran LGBT activists have been staging monthly demonstrations, protesting brutal treatment in this nation which may be the most anti-gay in Latin America, according to the Miami Herald.
  • The oldest liberal organization in America, founded by Eleanor Roosevelt — Americans for Democratic Action — will tie together LGBT rights and the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. next week in Washington for their “What Would Martin Do” forum at Howard University.
  • The nominees have been announced for the next installment of the GLAAD Media Awards, including ‘Glee,’ ‘J. Edgar,’ ‘Modern Family,’ ‘Albert Nobbs,’ Anderson Cooper, Lady Gaga, ‘Ebony,’ ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ ‘Marie Claire,’ and ‘Pariah.’ The awards are given out March 24th in New York, April 21st in Los Angeles and June 2 in San Francisco, because while most award shows seem like they take three months, GLAAD wants to make it a reality.
  • Not on the list of nominees, RuPaul’s Drag Race will return to your television on January 30, because after this winter’s line-up Logo really needed to do something a little less low-brow.
  • According to the Greenfield Indiana Daily Reporter, The outgoing German Soccer Federation president says it’s time for gay players to come out.

And with all that open-marriage Gingrich stuff, Jon Stewart has something to say.

  • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., supported gay rights, but his assassination cut that short. At last one of his aides, Bayard Rustin, was gay and was killed in the civil rights movement. At least that’s what they taught us in seminary. (Half of the professors were black, and some had been involved with Dr. King.)
