Hey friend, here is a tiny sampling of the stories coming your way in this week’s Xtra Weekly newsletter. Let’s get to it! 🌈✨

THIS WEEK ON XTRA 

👉TikTok star Tanner Armstrong jokingly made a shared Google Calendar called “The Gay Agenda”—then it took off. As Xtra contributor Joel Louzado discovers, there are now more than 16,000 users who are part of a new online LGBTQ2 community.

QUEER NEWS AROUND THE WORLD

👉I am once again asking you to wear a mask. Despite state laws mandating mask-wearing in public spaces, Vice-President Mike Pence held an indoor rally in Wisconsin where most attendees, sitting in close quarters, chose not to wear one. Plus, he’s baaaaack! Pete Buttigieg has a spot on Joe Biden’s transition team if the Democratic leader wins the presidential election.

TBH, CULTURE IS QUEER 🤷🌈

👉A Filipina-American, trans-led high-school rom-com is hitting screens soon—and we hear cheerleaders are involved. Plus, Matt Bomer admits in a new interview that coming out as gay has cost him roles and opportunities in Hollywood. And Madonna is co-writing and directing her own biopic, because of course she is.

All these stories and much more in this week’s Xtra Weekly.
