MANIC MONDAY Not gonna lie, we watched a lot of TikToks on this cold, rainy Monday for #GayNrd’s Daily news roundup for May 10, 2021.

DAVID HOGG has a big deal to share: Gen Z and Y are increasingly taking over the electorate.

HEALTH FIRST Writer George M. Johnson says “Abolish the DayQuil Industrial Complex!!! #Blacktiktok #fyp #foryou #foryourpage #fypage #foryoupage in his latest TikTok. His award-winning, best-selling 2020 young adult novel All Boys Aren’t Blue has just been made available in Spanish.

LABOR SHORTAGE There’s no fucking labor shortage. There’s a real tacitly government backed pushback on wages for the first time since the New Deal. “In a system as large and complex as the U.S. labor market there will always be pockets of bona fide labor shortages at any given time. But a more common reason is employers simply don’t want to raise wages high enough to attract workers. Employers post their too-low wages, can’t find workers to fill jobs at that pay level, and claim they’re facing a labor shortage. Given the ubiquity of this dynamic, I often suggest that whenever anyone says, “I can’t find the workers I need,” she should really add, “at the wages I want to pay.” Economic Policy Institute.

COMING OUT to Mom 16 yrs ago. Couldn’t say it so I wrote “I’m gay” on folded paper and handed it to her. She didn’t open it b/c she could see right through the paper. “How long have you known?,” she asked. “My whole life.” I answered. We’ve been thick as thieves ever since

TRAILER OF THE DAY LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS VOLUME 2

EXCLUSIVE: DC’S THE CONJURING COMIC WRITERS ON WHAT IT TAKES TO BRING THE HORROR WORLD FROM SCREEN TO PAGE Announced by DC Comics last month as the flagship title in a new DC Horror imprintThe Conjuring: The Lover will give longtime fans and newcomers alike a new story that leads into the events of The Devil Made Me Do It, adding depth and context to the film while pushing The Conjuring universe into comics for the first time. Today, DC Comics released a creepy first look at this all-new story, and SYFY WIRE sat down with writers David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Rex Ogle to talk about how it all came together.

COMING OUT Literally nobody cared.

MUST READ NEW YORK TIMES: “The mass deaths in America from 1981 to 1996 — have you heard of them? In her 2012 book, “The Gentrification of the Mind,” Sarah Schulman delved into the silence still surrounding AIDS in America. “Where is our wall of white marble with the names of every New Yorker who died of government neglect?” she asks. “Where is our special prosecutor?” “Where is our post-traumatic diagnosis? Where is our recovery?” There is still no permanent memorial. No special prosecutor, no federal aid to survivors. But there has been the indefatigable work of advocates like Schulman, whose work now involves preserving the memory of a movement at constant risk of distortion.”

As a character in her novel “Rat Bohemia” admits: “I’ve had a sneaking suspicion lately that I’m gonna live a lot longer than most of the people I meet. If I’m gonna be the only one still around to say what happened, I’d better pay close attention now.” Schulman has gone from witness to a sort of living archive. She is a former member of AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, the influential direct-action group committed to ending AIDS. Her new book, “Let the Record Show,” is based on 17 years of interviews she conducted with nearly 200 members of the organization. There were ultimately some 148 independent chapters of ACT UP around the world. Schulman sets her history in New York in the years between 1987 and 1993, when the Monday night meetings at a downtown lesbian and gay community center attracted hundreds. The effect is rather like standing in the middle of that large room, where anyone could speak up and share an idea. Everyone is talking; small stories branch off, coalesce pages later. Speakers shade in one another’s stories, offer another angle, disagree passionately. You turn a page, and the same people have their arms linked together at a protest. Shadows start to fall; in squares of gray text, deaths are marked, moments for remembrance. So many people leave the room.

BEHIND THE SCENES Fire Islanders: The Myth-Making Geography of Boys in the Sand One of the first, most potent images in Wakefield Poole’s groundbreaking 1971 adult film Boys in the Sand is that of Casey Donovan emerging from the waves before making his way onto the beach. The image feels like a queering of a common cultural touchstone: a figure of great beauty surrounded by water, as if the waves and sea came together to create it.
