Rejected: The Struggles of Dating With HIV

Tyler Curry | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
You are going to be rejected. It is true, and it is going to happen eventually. Someone is going to shut you down before they get to know you because you are living with HIV. It sucks, it isn't fair, and there is nothing that you can do about how they feel. But you can stop equating rejection with loss.

Don't Let Others' Expectations Limit You!

Greg Louganis | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
On Sunday last week I had an opportunity to indulge my other passion, acting, with a reading of Spring at the Willowbrook Inn. I know for many it was quite a jump to see me go from Olympic diver to actor, and yes, I have seen many an eye roll -- "Oh, not another one!" -- but performing is where it all began for me.

Is Your Husband Gay? Don't Be So Sure

Joe Kort, Ph.D. | November 26, 2014 | Divorce
Jennifer discovered from her husband Tom's emails that he was meeting Brad for sex. She came to see me, heartbroken, sure that her marriage to her "gay" husband was doomed. But when I examined Tom, I discovered he wasn't gay.

Gratitude and Grace

Ginny Gilder | November 26, 2014 | Women
My kids shrink from the annual dinner tradition of reciting three things they're grateful for, but they participate nonetheless. If nothing else, it makes them think for a moment about how they've been aided along the way to enjoy the lives they are now living.

Formerly Gay and for Rent

Scott Stiffler | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
It's a cold day indeed when you find yourself huddled against what used to be the Rawhide bar, bitterly surveying a vanilla-speckled permafrost of banks and franchises and chain stores. Is it not enough that the pharmacies and Starbucks outnumber the sex shops and watering holes, and have for quite some time?

Narong Tintamusik Paints Porn, and No One Can Believe the Result (NSFW IMAGES)

Phillip M. Miner | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
I stumbled across him on Instagram, and the longer I watched the work he was producing, the more I realized I had to profile him immediately. I sent out some screen shots of his work to past interviewees, and everyone was blown away and couldn't believe he's only 23. I got in contact with him and interviewed him, and it's my pleasure to introduce to the world Narong Tintamusik.

Dear Straight, White, Male New Friend

Rev. Frederick Davie | November 26, 2014 | Black Voices
You may want to think about what it means for others to hear you say that you have no lack of confidence because you are a straight, white male. It could suggest just the opposite.

Thankful for Being Able To Live a Complete Life

Anthony Nicodemo | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
A few days before the trip, while I began planning dinner reservations, it dawned on me. For the first time my past and present would meet. My new gay friends would be socializing with my longtime straight friends.

Why You Should Care That Tim Cook and Michael Sam Are Gay

Danielle Ariano | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
Have you heard the news that Apple CEO Tim Cook is gay? Are you thinking, "OK, was anybody asking?" or perhaps more pointedly, "Who gives a flying f***?"? Then this blog post is for you!

The Importance of Trans Allies

Stephanie Battaglino | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
"I can't do this alone." I muttered those words to myself at several points during my transition, especially as I prepared to come out in my workplace. I can remember feeling as if I was staring up at Mount Everest wondering how, and if, I could ever make it over or around it.

An Open Letter to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott

Harry Cook | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
At present I'm living in Los Angeles, a wonderful place where gay people can get married legally and have the same rights as our straight counterparts. Meanwhile, Australia is painfully behind when it comes to marriage equality. I'd like to ask why you think it appropriate that Australia exempt itself from the progress we see in the rest of the Western world.

Out of this work comes two briefings that expose the depth of suffering and violence perpetrated against LGBT people across different levels of society.

Gay Web Series Celebrates 'Found Families' on Thanksgiving

Leon Acord | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
More than any other holiday, I think this one is made for "found families," i.e., families we form in adulthood from friends and neighbors. Since the show is all about a group of friends-as-family in West Hollywood, it seemed a perfect match.

LGBT and Home for the Holidays?

Jennifer Knapp | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
As you feel the dry, rough skin of your father's hand, or perhaps the pudgy, sticky fingers of your nephew in the palm of your own, you may find yourself feeling both uncomfortable and comforted. When was the last time you held their hand for so long?

Memories of Violence: Family Discusses Why It's Important to Support Their Transgender Child

Randall Jenson | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
Last year, Mazy was aware and confident enough in herself, after coping with a lot of self-shame and bullying, to share with her family, second grade class and elementary school that she had always known she was a girl.

Transgender and Privileged

Stephanie Mott | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
I am a transsexual woman. I am therefore marginalized and oppressed. Such is the nature of life for transgender people in the home of the brave and the land of the free. I live in a red state. I am therefore pushed further to the margins. However, for me, this is only part of the story.

Ferguson: It's Us, Not Them

William Dameron | November 25, 2014 | Gay Voices
Here is something I have learned while fighting for equality: It is not something that can be portioned out to one population and withheld from another. The definition of equality is that all populations and the individuals within them (not just a few) are equal. That does not exist in America today. If you are not equal, then neither am I.

Bridging the AIDS Generation Gap

Victoria Noe | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
"Don't trust anyone over 30!" That was the mantra of my youth. And though I still feel that way at times, I had to admit long ago that I'm on the other side of that number. The gap is still there; it's always there. And nowhere does that divide seem wider than in the AIDS community.
