The phenomenal success of Pokemon Go has inspired me. I have developed a new game for the gay male community that combines the best features of the augmented-reality game Pokemon Go with gay hook-up apps like Grindr. I call it Pokemon Gay.
By being a mirror for others and acknowledging their goodness, you reinforce your own goodness and positive qualities. You can simply give other people compliments and acknowledge that others are doing a good job in life.
Instead of the guideline looking inward and addressing the Catholic Church's own shortcomings, Archbishop Chaput chooses to blame society for spreading "confusion" on issues related to marriage, the family, and LGBT people. This so called confusion on these issues isn't caused by society, but rather the Church's unwillingness to take responsibility for their own mistakes.
The end of the federal government's War On Weed is approaching fast. No matter how the details work out, that much seems pretty clear at this point.
This month my wife Laurie and I celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary and that has made me reflect on how far we have come, and how much we have had to overcome being a bi-national lesbian couple.
Have you ever felt shameful or rejected yourself for being gay? It's easy to fixate on blaming others for these experiences and feelings. In moments of shame and rejection, you're not attending to the places of woundedness by blaming others.
What will Northern Ireland do? Because if Scotland bolts, Ireland may actually unite once again as well. I have no idea what the chances of this actually happening really are, but the least you can say is that the chances would certainly be higher if Scotland does decide to go its own way.
Being comfortable in one's own skin is a feeling everyone deserves and something that should be celebrated. It's a pity that few realise that the celebration is about people arriving at that feeling rather than praising the colour, origination or orientation of the skin they live in.
Ours was supposed to be a show celebrating the one-year anniversary of marriage equality, capturing the giddy elation (for us) and exasperation (for 'them') of that day last year when Obama announced the Supreme Court had ruled in favor of marriage equality. But now, it almost feels like a requiem.
I am grateful to the gay men and women who came before me and fought so hard for us to have basic rights. The kind of bravery that it took to fight during Stonewall, to fight during the AIDS crisis, to fight against Don't Ask, Don't Tell, humbles me.
I had my first experience with Mormons For Equality three years ago (2013) when I marched with the group in the Utah Pride Parade. I had just barely come out -- only a few months prior telling my Mormon parents that I was gay.
While 1.6 million LGBTQ packed NYC, here in my town, eight drag queens and their fans packed a small town gay friendly bar last night and danced to Sister Sledge's 'We Are Family'.
If we say that we need to ditch the clause "love the sinner, hate the sin", we effectively lose the core gospel that is the only hope of salvation not dependent upon our own works. Jesus, Christians proclaim, died for us WHILE we were still enemies!
Brands big and small, and companies local and global showed their support for #PrideMonth this weekend in New York, and the support never felt so good. The endless rainbow flags brought great comfort to us all. Here's a little sampling from the weekend.
The point is that we don't know if Donald's our friend. He might not know himself, because he's held so many different position on so many issues.
Three years ago this morning my then-partner and I sat in our living room with our laptops open to SCOTUSblog and - with tears in our eyes - watched m...
