!! OMG, WATCH: The trailer for the Jim Parsons-produced Netflix show ‘SPECIAL’ about a gay man with cerebral palsy, has arrived! !!

Special, is a distinctive and uplifting new series about a gay man, Ryan with mild cerebral palsy who decides to rewrite his identity and finally go after the life he wants. After years of dead-end internships, working in his pajamas as a blogger and communicating mostly via text, Ryan eventually figured out how to take his life from bleak to chic and began limping towards adulthood. The offbeat comedy is based on series creator and star Ryan O’Connell’s memoir, “I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves.” O’Connell also serves as executive producer alongside Jim Parsons.

This looks awesome and refreshing! Check out the trailer above!

!! OMG, how disappointing: Bernhard Willhelm steals drawing from queer artists for use on T-shirt !!

Bernhard Willhelm T-shirt featuring stolen design from Pansy Ass Ceramics, modeled by Aquaria
We were sad to learn that beloved queer brand Bernhard Willhelm has stolen and exploited, either through negligence or hubris, the work of two independent queer artists. Pansy Ass Ceramics (@pansyassceramics) created the enamel pin shown above right in 2017, which features original bird artwork by Pansy Ass partner Kris Aaron (you can buy the pin here).

Willhelm’s team lifted the entire image for use on a T-shirt (we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a Google Image screenshot taken by a lazy design assistant), which was then photographed for a Tush Magazine editorial. Kudos to model Aquaria for calling out the label on its thievery.

Aquaria Bernhard Willhelm apology

At the time of this post, there has been no acknowledgment or apology from the Bernhard Willhelm atelier.
