Ever since the race for the Republican presidential nomination began, one thing in particular has been bugging me. It's the statement that we need...
To me, then, the parenting label one adopts is thus less a matter of specific definition and more a matter of choice and personal parenting identity -- an identity that may or may not correspond to one's gender identity.
The struggles of LGBT individuals continue every day, for recognition under the law or acceptance in their community. Let no one be under the impression that the struggle for true equality has ended. Let us not forget: just because a law is passed, it doesn't mean that everyone is treated equally.
I'm concerned that you're perpetuating the idea that bisexuals don't exist, and if we do, we're X percent straight and X percent gay.
A theme throughout her career, Osborne acknowledged, is honest, authentic examinations of life. Combined with early participation in Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair -- which gained an early reputation as a wonderland for lesbian fans -- the singer has gained a strong following within the LGBT community.
Failure to acknowledge and address biphobia has had a powerful impact on bisexual health, forcing our risk factors to skyrocket past those of gay and lesbian people.

Bisexually-oriented people often spend years asking themselves 'am I bisexual?' without reaching a conclusion, influenced by society's misconceptions that bisexuality doesn't exist or that you need to be equally attracted to men and women to be a 'true' bisexual.
On top of time and patience, we also must be willing to teach and guide our allies.
We all know what societies like ours do to threats. We criminalize, prosecute and incarcerate them. We discredit and marginalize them. We invisibilize and forget them. That is why I will continue to say the names of those Black folks whose lives have been cut short by racism and brutality of all forms.
I'm not straight; I'm bisexual. Appearing as straight and being straight are two different things. The privilege I gain from appearing straight is taken away the moment my sexual orientation is revealed. I wanted to make that clear.
