Mothers and Sons, refreshingly imagines a world that the backyard barbecue guests of my childhood could probably never have imagined
If you can get married, we can all get married, and we don't have to tolerate the rest of your bigotry as a payoff for something you seem to think is a privilege. Marriage is not a privilege; it's a right!
This week I talked with actor Pam Grier -- legendary for her starring roles in Foxy Brown and Jackie Brown, and for her role as Kit Porter on The L Word -- about Dining Out for Life, being a spokesperson for this fabulous event and her spin on LGBT issues.
Why is a rise in heterosexual people practicing anal sex negative? Regnerus offered no empirical data to support this claim (and no evidence exists that I know of), but nonetheless, somehow this claim is supposed to make the rise of gay marriage be bad.
Christians are in the news again. This is almost never good. I mean, I love my people. Really! I am one of my people! But we are idiots sometimes. Once again, we are taking a stand against "immorality" and "godlessness."
As we experience more victories like we did in Texas and Arizona last week, we'll be that much closer to seeing equality for all. We're getting there, but there's a lot more work to be done.

The top editors at National Review and Nation debate the economics and morality of a) Arizona 1062, b) modern Pentagon budget and c) Kiev after Sochi. Looking 'into his soul', Lowry and vanden Heuvel agree Putin is dangerously confounding.
And even though Governor Jan Brewer wisely vetoed the bill, it reminds us that for every inch gained in the fight for true freedom and equality in a country that pretends to cherish both, it only takes one act like this to set us back a mile.
Your religious "right" to refuse service to gays and lesbians? Actually, no. ...
SB 1062 in Arizona was vetoed by Governor Jan Brewer! But not everyone is so happy about it. Amidst the hatred, there was actually more entertaining hatred found on Twitter.
Even when Republicans weren't shooting at their own feet this week, it appears they were conducting a circular firing squad instead. The 2014 campaign, in other words, is off to a raucous start... and it's only February.
This week I talked with Kristen Ellis-Henderson and Cathy Henderson, co-founders of the all-female alternative country rock band Antigone Rising, about their music and their spin on LGBT issues.
