Five Worth Finding: Tom of Finland, help for renters, 'Batwoman'
2020-09-22


—Rentervention ( https://lcbh.org/get-legal-help/rentervention ): This webpage begins with a daunting statistic: Each year, more than 20,000 people are evicted from their homes in Chicago. Rentervention—a part of the Lawyers' Committee for Better Housing—helps with such issues as apartment/building conditions, housing discrimination, foreclosure, retaliation and, of course, eviction.

—Batwoman: The Complete First Season: Batwoman: The Complete First Season—featuring lesbian actress Ruby Rose in her one and only season portraying the out superheroine—is out on DVD and Blu-ray. There are 20 episodes from the first season, plus The Best of DC TV's Comic-Con panels San Diego 2019, deleted scenes and a gag reel. By the way, bisexual actress Javicia Leslie has been cast as the new Batwoman ( with a new lesbian character named Ryan Wilder ).

—Humblemaker Coffee Co. cold-brew shots ( Humblemaker.coffee ): For those who want a seriously caffeinated kick, check out these shots. They come in Boomtowne ( an ultra-smooth, triple-strength, black cold brew shot with liquid multivitamin supplement ), La Fonda ( an antioxidant-rich, Mexican coffee cold brew shot with pure cinnamon and cacao ) and Black Sea ( a really strong Turkish coffee cold brew shot brewed with real cardamom and clove ).

—Tom of Finland: The Official Life of a Gay Hero: Creating with the Tom of Finald Foundation, Tom of Finland: The Official Life and Work of a Gay Hero is a detailed book full of never, or rarely seen, materials from the late artist's archive. The text was completed just a few months before the death of the artist and he was interviewed at length for it—making this book the only fully approved biography of the legend responsible for creating the muscled, mustachioed gay archetype of the 1960s and '70s.

—Soundoff's "My Vote Matters" clothing and gear ( https:// Article Link Here ): Soundoff is gearing for the 2020 election. The gender-neutral streetwear brand aims to give individuals a voice to promote greater acceptance and tolerance—and has designed its next capsule collection, "My Vote Matters," complete with items ranging from a "Vote" mask to election-themed thermals, sweatshirt, long-sleeve tees and totes.
