LGBT Rights + Immigration Rights = Justice

Rev. Noel Bordador | April 17, 2015 | Gay Voices
Sometimes, all immigrants are lumped together as a threat to the national and financial security of these United States. I am saddened that we are all characterized as such, but I want you to know that the majority of immigrants are not only law-abiding citizens and residents, but we have a great love of this country and much to contribute.

Andrew Morrison-Gurza | April 17, 2015 | Gay Voices

Dr. Peggy Drexler | April 17, 2015 | Politics
Racism, homophobia, the refusal to regard women as equals -- these beliefs will only end if we keep talking about why and how they're problematic, and force those who hold them to own them -- and face the consequences.

Sue Carswell | April 17, 2015 | Gay Voices
I know what it's like to be outed. I was outed by the newspaper of record, The New York Times, specifically by Bob Morris in the Style section. When I wrote a letter to Max Frankel, the editor at the time, he asked if I wanted a retraction. No, I...

Historians of the LGBTQ past have noted that there is double-standard, a default setting for the sexual orientations of historical figures. Larry Kramer seeks to tackle it head-on with his book. His provocative statements will convince some and irk others.

Robert Weiss | April 16, 2015 | Gay Voices
It's 2015 and gays like myself are still here, still queer and people seem to be getting used to us. Sort of.

The Politics of Shame and Pride

Olivia Wilson | April 16, 2015 | Gay Voices
Shame. It governs our lives in more ways than we'd want it to. Any cringe, embarrassment, infraction of social norms; It is a learnt mechanism to pull us back into a narrative that we have been told our whole lives.
