After spending 19 months in a men’s prison as punishment for defending herself in a transphobic attack, CeCe McDonald was released from prison today, more than a year before her initial sentence of 41 months was up.

McDonald will continue to be under the supervision of the Minnesota Department of Corrections until the completion of her 41 month sentence, according to Michael Friedman, executive director of the Legal Rights Center, which represented McDonald in court last year.

She was released from the Minnesota Correctional Facility – St. Cloud around 8:30 a.m. CT, an official at the prison said.

CeCe says she’ll release a public statement soon. FINALLY!

The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter whether or not you think homosexuality is a sin. Let me say that again. It does not matter if you think homosexuality is a sin, or if you think it is simply another expression of human love. It doesn’t matter. Why doesn’t it matter? Because people are dying. Kids are literally killing themselves because they are so tired of being rejected and dehumanized that they feel their only option left is to end their life. As a Youth Pastor, this makes me physically ill. And as a human, it should make you feel the same way. So, I’m through with the debate. When faced with the choice between being theologically correct…as if this is even possible…and being morally responsible, I’ll go with morally responsible every time.

Happy Belated Pride!!!

any one else feel like Dolores this year was more of an open party than a space for dykes before the march? I was always told Dolores before Dyke March was supposed to be a sacred space for women folk, bio or not, but definitely women identified and specifically queer. I was discouraged from inviting too many or any male bodied friends. However, this year I felt like I saw more boys and straight people than ever.
Perhaps it was the bringing down of DOMA. Perhaps it was because there was no LovEvolution this year. I don’t really know. But Dyke March did not feel like my community this year. And I was disappointed. Did anyone else feel the same?
