CLIMATE CHANGE. It’s here, and its real: “The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration. The draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies, which has not yet been made public, concludes that Americans are feeling the effects of climate change right now.”

NATURE MOMENT. ‘Pink rainbow’ spotted in England.
CYNTHIA NIXON. She won’t deny a run for New York governor.
TEXAS. Anti-transgender bathroom bill falters. “Social conservatives and the state’s powerful lieutenant governor, Dan Patrick, have backed the effort.

Wood, who heads the General Council of the Assemblies of God, spoke out against “unnecessary swearing” during a meeting with White House staff.’

Alan Cumming’s new nightlife spot is about to open in NYC’s East Village: “Cumming announced plans to open a cabaret club—he’s experienced in this type of performance; his Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs cabaret show debuted in 2015—back in April, but at that point, Eastern Bloc’s closing date was still up in the air. However, the East Village news blog EV Grieve announced today that Eastern Bloc would officially be shuttering on August 6th after 12 years in the neighborhood.
THE GANGWAY. San Francisco’s oldest gay bar sold: “Based on a pending liquor license transfer, the Tenderloin gay bar — which opened in 1910 and began publicly identifying as a gay bar in 1961 — is in the process of being sold to Sam Young, the man behind the quirky and sometimes controversial bar Kozy Kar several blocks away.”
