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?
Since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law, more than 15 million Americans have received some type of health coverage. This open enrollment period alone has seen almost 7 million new sign-ups. Still, there are many more to reach, especially in the Latino community, where one in four remains uninsured.
A recently published study connects the dots between the disproportionate rate of mental health problems among gay and bisexual men and their equally disproportionate rate of HIV infection.
This week, President Obama introduce a series of economic proposals during his annual State of the Union speech. Here's how five of them would impact the LGBTQ community.
With the Supreme Court's announcing it will review marriage discrimination laws in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, we look to the Court to apply United States v. Windsor, its powerful 2013 decision striking down Section 3 of DOMA, to establish marriage equality nationwide.
The time has come for the entire LGBT community and our allies to join this fight. It is about us. It is a simple fact that no one can or should try to change who we are. Whether we were born gay or lesbian, or whether we were assigned "male" or "female" at birth only to realize that our gender identity doesn't match, no one else should have the right to try to have us changed.
I became aware of John MacConnell's Instagram account this summer and was quickly hooked.
On behalf of lgbt youth and adults who feel they have no voice at all, I'm willing to keep stammering and crawling... until I fully find my own voice and learn how to fly.
But there is no biblical mandate to deny LGBTQ Idahoans equality under the law. Adding the Words will not require religious organizations to change their theology or practice. It will prevent people from denying housing, employment, or services to people because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
As a father and a leader serving my community, I need to continue to step up in alliance with other far more courageous LGBT leaders and community folks to ensure that we are creating a just society.
This past Monday on Martin Luther King Day the themes of social justice, equality, and perseverance resonated strongly for those in attendance at the ninth annual OUTMusic Awards (OMAs). Marketed as "the biggest night in LGBT music," the OMAs almost didn't happen.
An incident recently occurred at Mt. Holyoke College where I wish there had been some wisdom imparted to the students, who acted impetuously and, unfortunately, embarrassed themselves and their cause.
Dean Atta is a poet who's gifted, politically engaged and rigorous in his approach to his work. This is a potent mix and an appealing one at that. I ask him what advice he would give to his thirteen-year-old self and his response is wise and winningly direct.
That word is admittedly a scary one. Most civilized, sane people don't want to be called homophobic. It doesn't mean that you're murdering gay people. It doesn't even mean that you're a homophobe. But...
The V-Day movement and Eve's play continue to evolve and respond to issues of the day, and our work with the movement was meant to be the start of a conversation about including sex and gender minorities. We encourage you to join us in working together to eliminate violence against all women and girls.
How fitting that just before Martin Luther King Jr. weekend our Supreme Court justices agreed to decide whether our constitution requires all 50 states to recognize same-sex marriages. As Dr. King said the night before he died, "All we say to America is be true to what you said on paper." Equal means equal.
