gq.com — By all accounts, 2015 has been a watershed year for gay rights in America. In June, the Supreme Court affirmed a Constitutional right to marriage in a landmark 5-4 decision. Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner's very public coming out has placed the trans experience squarely in the national conversation-as have pop cultural milestones like the Amazon series Transparent and the forthcoming The Danish Girl starring Oscar incumbent Eddie Redmayne.

Young Bill Gates Was an Angry Office Bully

gq.com — Microsoft founder Bill Gates turns 60 today and most of the coverage has focused on his ground-breaking work as a philanthropist, promoting public health and other important causes throughout the world.

Serena Williams Demonstrates Why It's Not a Good Idea to Ask a Woman to Smile

gq.com — Here's a thing that men apparently do with some frequency, and that infuriates many women: We condescendingly ask them to smile or, relatedly, ask them why they are not currently smiling-or tell them they would look prettier if they smiled. Writers for The Atlantic , and xoJane have covered this topic in the past.

'The Fall': The 'True Detective' Fix You Won't Get from 'True Detective'

gq.com — For the entirety of its short existence, True Detective has been an acquired taste. But just three weeks into its sophomore season, the show seems to be dividing even its most loyal viewers, if puzzled reactions on Twitter-and a score of 48 percent on Rotten Tomatoes-are to be believed.
