George Floyd: Last News


The Golden Globes Return to TV Gayer Than Ever

After last year’s Golden Globe Awards did not air due to ongoing criticism of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s (HFPA) lack of diversity, this year’s ceremony came back as queer as can be, with recognition of LGBTQ+ characters, performers, and producers.The show kicked off with a monologue from out comedian and host Jerrod Carmichael, who addressed the HFPA’s history of racism directly. “I’m here cause I’m Black,” Carmichael joked, as he opened the show.He also rightly pointed out that he is the show’s first Black host in its 80-year history, and until George Floyd was killed, the HFPA didn’t have a single Black member for years.As the night progressed, Carmichael also referenced his sexuality.
