The obvious choice for this week's Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week is none other than America's new Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. Lynch was finally confirmed by the Senate in a 56-43 vote.
How was this happening all over again? Why did the Governor decide that it was in his power to pick and choose which laws he was going to enforce?
My two dads taught me everything I know about love and family. And now we're ready to show the rest of America what it means, because many people don't realize that marriage bans affect kids and families, not just same-sex couples.
He would also edit my writing, organize my closets and plan adventurous weekends at outer-borough museums and trips to Hindu temples. He was, in short, my dream man. So could a real committed relationship work?
The recent events in Indiana and Arkansas prove that a Supreme Court decision bringing marriage for same-sex couples to all parts of the nation won't end political conflict associated with LGBT rights. But it will improve America's families.
There is a girl in our daughter's class who shares her first name. The two children have been fast friends since kindergarten. They've had sleepovers, played dress-up with each other's costumes, ran through the sprinkler and managed lemonade stands on hot days.
The four marriage cases before the Supreme Court this spring are provoking a complacent response from some in our community who should know better. Once again, their response is not only mistaken, it's dangerous to our rights.
The anti-gay Family Research Council has a new video about how the gays are ruining everything, what with their pesky marrying and buying of cakes and, well, simply existing. And this video isn't just a video -- it's part of a crafty advertising campaign.

This is not the time to grow complacent, but it is the time to celebrate our achievements to date and then recommit our time, voices and resources to ensure the fight against discrimination continues. Say #IDo as a symbol of America's collective resolve to ensure "Liberty and Justice for All."
The decline in marriage rates began long before gay couples won the right to marry anywhere. To pin that decline on them is scapegoating, pure and simple, and I suspect, an act of desperation.
When I stood in the crowd with my pink glasses and suit, I understood the purpose of my life. That I was born into a world where I loved my mamma, and I loved my gay dad and I loved my cowboy uncle. That's what love is about, knowing that none of us are so different that we don't share something.
This week I talked with Chef Daisy Martinez, television personality, author and spokesperson for Dining Out For Life the HIV/AIDS fundraiser. Dining O...
Of all the queens to come out of RuPaul's Drag Race, there are very few as universally loved and revered as Latrice Royale. I caught up with Latrice during some of her very rare free time to chat about what's new in her life and her thoughts on the past and future of drag.
I don't smile any more, however, since my piece is now used in US Courts.
It's 2015 and gays like myself are still here, still queer and people seem to be getting used to us. Sort of.
