Pride may be postponed this year, but rainbows aren’t going anywhere. Besides being a symbol for celebrating sexual and gender diversity, rainbows are all about hope, and right now we sure could use it.

One of the most timeless songs about rainbows is the Rainbow Connection, originally written for the Muppet Movie by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher, which over the years became a huge cover song by people like Justin Vivian Bond, Willy Nelson,Jason Mraz, Deborah Harry and even The Carpenters.

And now, Kermit the Frog is singing it again, socially distanced and unplugged from his lily pad in the Okefenokee Swamp.

Today we take a look at the song Rainbow Connection plus all the sizzling hot news:

    Whoa guys. Really? I’m no Christian but look at things in the context of the present moment. Islam treats women and gays as 3rd class citizens. Even the extreme far-right Christians don’t advocate for LGBT murder or stoning women.

    I dare you to go to a Muslim country wearing a pride shirt and broadcasting that you’re gay. You’d be shown to the tallest building and that would be the end of it.

    Goldblum was 100% correct in asking that question. Even more so given that he’s Jewish.

    What lance said. Plus your point about the x-ians being historically brutal is fair, but there are no modern equivalents of the inquisition, crusades or witch burnings. In the totality you may be right but even modern Dubai can be problematic.

    Re: NY election. There is an election, but no presidential primary. Maybe. There’s a court case that may have put the primary back on.
