I'm against gay marriage because the Bible clearly states that a man can live inside a giant fish. But seriously, folks... Same-sex marriage is leg...
This post is about sharing the voices of some amazing LGBTQ community leaders, allies, and friends -- and they are thankful for a lot. I hope this assemblage of thanks is as awe-inspiring to you as it is to me.
In every step we take, Harvey, we recognize that our family stands on a foundation built by you and your generation's brave work. In every step we take, we honor your request to come out, come out, wherever we are, to "break down the myths, destroy the lies and distortions."
David Cameron's foreign-aid policy and the falsities presented by the African press only contribute to this demonization of LGBT people. If there is one thing that I have learned from activism, it is that punishing people will not get them to change their views on LGBT rights.
As we gather around the table for a Thanksgiving dinner or volunteer at a local community center, let's all take a second to be thankful for the victories that our community has seen recently.
In keeping with the holiday, I've thought about some things that I am thankful for - in my personal parenting circumstance and also in our community. What are your experiences this holiday season?
There is no night. There is no day. There are lights that go on and off. I am not a human; I am a weed that the world hates, so they are going to whack me down with fake illumination and peanut-butter-and-baloney sandwiches. They are going to march me to my grave.
The U.S. Air Force Academy cannot give closeted cadets the personal courage to come out. That is a decision that only they can make for themselves. But what the Academy can do is recognize that there are closeted LGB cadets who find the atmosphere unwelcoming.
Last week IKEA, the Swedish home furnishing company famed for its easily assembled furniture and deliciously horsey meatballs, failed to take a stand for equality and inclusion when it removed an interview of a lesbian couple from its Russian IKEA catalog.
While progress may be occurring, there is no doubt that Greek life is made of mostly heterosexual individuals. Thus, it is hard for LGBTQ individuals to feel comfortable with themselves in this environment.
(We Are) #GayPropaganda looks to provide the international community with the tools and language needed to make their opposition to Russia's anti-LGBT oppression heard during the Winter Olympics. Our ultimate goal? To blanket social media and raise a new kind of global awareness.
If the United Methodist Church in southeastern Pennsylvania eventually defrocks Rev. Schaefer, it would be a great shame. This is a man who can teach the church and the community real life lessons about love, compassion and doing the right thing.
Fearing that one person would use locker room myths as a tactic to remove me from my coaching position scared me to death. One crazy parent could turn my life upside down and take me away from something I love. Rather than risk this, I stayed closeted and lived a secret life.
In America we celebrate many liberties, among them the freedom to publish. The logical consequence of the right to produce books is the freedom to read. Now, this may be a "chicken or egg" dilemma, but whichever way you look at it, one action should naturally follow the other.
Cooper, who finally came out of the closet just last year, did far more harm to the LGBT community by staying in the closet for all those decades than Alec Baldwin has ever done with his temper tantrums.
If the church wants to start making the news again for its humanity rather than its bigotry, it would do well to start focusing on meeting society where it is, assessing what the greatest needs are, and actually serving those needs.
