An Open Letter To A Gentrifying Property Developer

Yuliana Salinas | June 27, 2016 | Latino Voices
I hope that the next time you visit, email, or call a Latino family, you have a better speech prepared. "White" people are not the only people that deserve housing, and Latinos are not at the very least deserving of your unsolicited dry speech.

What I Learned About Life From My 'Orange Is The New Black' Character, Crystal Burset

Tanya Wright | June 23, 2016 | Entertainment
I have no idea what will happen between Sophia and Crystal in the coming seasons. Playing her has been one of the great highlights of my lucky career as an actor. I've learned more from Crystal than just about any character I've ever played. And for that, I am eternally grateful.

We Were All At Pulse

Yoani Sanchez | June 16, 2016 | World
The official Cuban press has treated the fact that the event took place in a gay establishment with omissions and squeamishness. The prudery on television and in the national periodicals, with this silence, only promotes homophobia and belies their own discourse of changes.

Remember The Forces That Marginalize Queers Also Marginalize Muslims

Jacob Tobia | June 13, 2016 | Queer Voices
Today, it is our obligation as a queer community to remember that islamophobia, homophobia, and transphobia work together.

We Have A Love Crisis In Our Country

Paul Brandeis Raushenbush | June 13, 2016 | Religion
Latinos/Immigrants/Queers proclaiming pride in who they are, in who God made them to be -- dancing with their hands raised as bullets sprayed, and the pulse faded and was gone. Devastation. Desolation. Grief. At least 50 heartbeats that will never revive. Their beautiful lives now merely ammunition, wood to fuel a destructive fire of recriminations, division and hatred that will consume our nation. We have a love crisis in our country. Our heart isn't beating right. Our arteries are clogged with clots of distrust and hate. The devil smiles as tears scald, burn, and slice. Queer lives are vanquished and points are scored. We have a love crisis in this country. Love is a scarce commodity.

We Aren't Afraid Of You

KG MacGregor | June 13, 2016 | Queer Voices
We know real fear. For many of us who grew up lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, our greatest fear was never your automatic weapons, your fists or anything else born in your depraved heart. Real fear was being unloved.

'Guns Everywhere' Trolls Miss the Mark on Katie Couric Documentary

Lonnie and Sandy Phillips | June 8, 2016 | Politics
We loved our daughter and were proud of her. A murderer took her life in a theater -- a place where anyone should feel safe. Those are the facts. The corporate gun lobby trolls should be ashamed of themselves for blowing smoke instead of putting out the fire.

If I Could Control My Hair, I Could Control My Life

Tanya Wright | June 1, 2016 | Black Voices
With a busy career as an actress on "Orange Is the New Black," my life sometimes feels more out of control than ever. At the same time, I know that the opposite is also true: That I am the captain of my ship; I am the master of my fate. And I would never have known that if it were not for my hair.

Katherine Shorter | June 1, 2016 | Black Voices
My husband didn't want our daughters to grow up thinking that they had to have permed hair to feel beautiful and accepted. He wanted them to see that they could be beautiful with all of the style and grace that God gave them.

Dear NCAA: My Mom Is a Sexual Assault Survivor and You Can Help

Darius Adams | June 1, 2016 | College
Oregon State cared more about football and money than my mom. I know that my mom wanted to kill herself, and I know that she almost did. And all because other people decided that football, money and reputation was more important than me and my brother having a mother.

Uncle Louie | May 27, 2016 | Miami
I am thrilled to see a hometown hero from Miami making it big! And someday, somebody in Mexico will share Britto's artwork and the same way I maintained it was a Miami thing, they will think it is a Mexico thing.
