Welcome back to This Week in Black Twitter, your weekly digest of the happenings on Black Twitter and cultural conversations on the Web. Topics will span the gamut — with pop culture, politics, sports, lifestyles and everything in between. This week: Users discuss diversity in LGBTQ media with #GayMediaSoWhite, people of color speak out with #BernieMadeMeWhite and responses to Kehlani's suicide attempt.
Blanco also noted that magazines such as Vogue and Vanity Fair have made an effort to be more inclusive. Meanwhile, he argues, the white, gay establishment has not.
Out magazine tweeted at Blanco, reminding him of the profile the outlet wrote about him in 2012.
The publication got shut down pretty quickly, especially when people started using #GayMediaSoWhite and tweeting photo collages of magazine covers featuring white males.
One user even used Baltimore mayoral candidate DeRay Mckessen, who gave a speech about his sexuality in 2015, to make his point.
Critics also argued for the importance of creating their own spaces.

Some users pointed out that Sanders hasn't won a state with a large black population. Hawaii, for example, is 3 percent black.
And while some celebrities showed their support for Kehlani...
Chris Brown decided to go a different route.
"There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram," he wrote in a series of tweets.
Brown's response exemplifies how some black people have traditionally viewed suicide. Even though the discussion of mental health in the black community has been brought to the forefront by TV shows like "Empire" and "Being Mary Jane," it still carries a negative stigma in which suicide is considered a "white thing."
Others echoed Brown's statement.
But the Twittersphere stepped in to remind Brown of his past transgressions and that suicide is not something to be taken lightly.
