Queerty: Gavin Newsom nominates first gay, Black man to CA Supreme Court


California is a long way from Washington, D.C.

While tensions build over Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, California Governor Gavin Newsom made history Monday when he announced the nomination of Martin J. Jenkins for Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court.

If confirmed, Jenkins, 66, would become the first openly gay man and third Black man to serve on the state’s highest court.

During the nomination ceremony, Newsom sited Jenkins’ “inner strength, grace and passion” among his strengths.

Jenkins gave thanks two two previous Black justices who served before him — Wiley Manuel and Allen Broussard.

“I understand it has been 29 years since an African American man has served on the high court and I wouldn’t be here today without the support and mentorship of these men,” he said.

Jenkins also talked about the struggles he faced being gay, offering a message of hope for young people:

“I want to say today to those young people who may be watching and those who may hear about what has transpired here, I am not here in spite of the struggle. I’m here because of the struggle. It is deep in my character that has afforded me sensibilities about the world and about people who are not so willing to accept that people can love differently than they do, but nevertheless love sincerely and genuinely and effectively. I want these young people to know that living a life of authenticity is the greatest gift you can give yourself, and if you do that, you too will find yourself in a position where people see you, they really see you for who you are. And I thank you, Gov. Newsom, for giving me this opportunity and for seeing me. ”

“The people of California could not ask for a better jurist or kinder person to take on this important responsibility,” Newsom said.

Jenkins began his career in the law as a prosecutor for the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, then became a civil rights attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.

He has since accepted four judgeship positions from both Democrats and Republicans. Most recently, he was appointed to the state Court of Appeal in 2008 by Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Jenkins retired from that position last year to become Newsom’s judicial appointment secretary, assisting in the vetting of judicial appointments.

Here’s the full press briefing if you want to dive in:

Queerty: Tyga is the latest star to have his nudes leak, and the collective response is “WHOA”


Rapper Tyga is the latest celebrity to fall victim to having an explicit photo leak online, but his response could kick off a new trend.

When life gives you lemons, as they say, join OnlyFans.

After discovering that the photo was circulating online, Tyga took the enterprising capitalist approach and decided he may as well make some money off of it since it’s already out there.

So he set up an OnlyFans account, joining the ranks of such luminaries as Tyler Posey, Aaron Carter and Jacob Wohl.

Anyone willing to dish out a not-so-small fee of $20 (or do even the tiniest amount of internet sleuthing) can now gain access to the Tyga’s tail.

And judging by the reaction, there’s a whole lot of tail on that cat:

“We’re in such a weird new world, a kind of Stasi it feels like to me, and if you don’t reflect exactly the right attitude, you risk everything just being destroyed for you by this judgmental, sanctimonious, intransigent, intractable, invisible cauldron of hags around in the virtual world.”–Actor Rupert Everett to The Advocate, sharing his thoughts on social media and cancel culture.
