As the hype around the TLC show My Husband's Not Gay begins to wane, I find it a shame that there has been little attention paid to the perspectives of straight women who have experienced being in a mixed-orientation marriage, where one spouse is gay and the other is straight.
At Swan Lake this week, I saw lots of little girls on the laps of moms and dads, but no little boys. And I felt a little sad. It's my opinion that little boys deserve as many opportunities to experience art and beauty as girls do, for they are links to creativity and self-expression.
In February 2014, Cleopatra Kambugu experienced this first hand, when the Ugandan tabloid Red Pepper published personal information about 200 LGBTI people in Uganda. Cleo was one of them, who had her picture and personal information printed on the front page.
LGBT people are a part of the fabric of America; we're cops, bus drivers, doctors, neighbors and friends. And all of us, no matter who we are, should be able to live without the fear of being treated unfairly as we go about our daily lives providing for ourselves and our families.
Relationships can feel incredible at the start and quickly turn heated or bland at best. All we want is to just reclaim the love we once felt, but something that seems so simple can feel like moving mountains.
Bobby Jindal used the power and prestige of his office to promote an event backed by some of the nation's most religiously divisive and stridently anti-gay activists. And in a bid to boost his own political future, he sent a clear message of support for the Christian-nation views of the event's extremist organizers.
I'd like to follow up on my previous blog post on the Mount Holyoke College controversy surrounding The Vagina Monologues because of the responses I've received. They've run the gamut from praise to condemnation, from thanks for informing the community of an important event in trans history to constructive criticism as well as vicious name calling.
When you consider the science of it all, the art of in-vitro fertilization is quite remarkable. Seriously, nothing about it is a meek undertaking. There are so many variables involved and any one fluctuation can change the whole game in a heartbeat.
I find the name of the church, New Hope Ministries, to be a fraudulent misnomer, a deceit in advertising. If Pastor Chavez considers his actions as representing some sort of hope, new or otherwise, I prefer no hope at all.
There's a big fight underway right now in Alabama, with a Judge overturning a marriage ban and state officials refusing to obey his order to issue licenses. Anti-gay politicians are threatening to ban all marriage licenses if the Supreme Court rules in favor of equality.
I love Nashville. For the most part, Nashville has loved me. I've had an on-again-off-again love affair with this town for almost two decades. But I do sometimes wonder if things would have played out differently had I pretended for the public.
While abroad in Morocco, one of 77 countries in which it is illegal to be gay, Anthony Mercurio was dumped by his first love. "I was pretty devastated," Anthony recalls. Unable to express the real reason for his heartbreak, at least Anthony had his host grandmother there to comfort him.
The story of the main character you play, a college senior who recently came out of the closet to his two goofy but loving roommates, seemed extremely compelling to me. There was so much potential to make something endearing, comical, and erotic.
Over the past year, I've just realized that I like to travel to places where other gay travelers tend to migrate to. I'm all for venturing out to further places, but every now and then, I just need a gay holiday...
The word "queer" is one that still puzzles many minds today, depending on the context, as it is used now as an umbrella term for a staggeringly diverse community, one that becomes more so every day. However, for non-queer persons, one question remains: "When am I allowed to use the word 'queer'?"
I offer a potential outcome on marriage equality when the Supreme Court takes it up this spring that New York Law School professor Art Leonard suggested as a possibility come June: Chief Justice John Roberts joins the majority and writes the decision himself, making it the narrowest possible ruling with regard to the ramifications for LGBT equality beyond marriage.
Married couple Brian Copeland and Greg Bullard have been searching for the perfect school to send their young son. Much to the couple's surprise, following a telephone call to the school, they received a letter stating unequivocally that they were not welcome to even meet with the headmaster.
Kris said that he knows now that he stopped transitioning because he was terrified of never finding love as a transgender person. But only a couple months later, Kris would start a journey that would prove how very wrong he was.
Ever notice how hard it is to find blacks bottoming for whites in interracial porn? With few exceptions, porn studios seem to think there is only one acceptable way to show interracial sex: The hyperaggressive African-American top and the submissive white bottom. Is gay porn racist?
