GO! Athletes has created the #Out4Olympics campaign in response to the public outcry over Russia's anti-LGBT policies. I talked to Aagenes about the importance of this campaign and her spin on LGBT issues.
With all of the craziness going on in our world, it's hard to wrap my head around how some people in 2014 are upset about who someone chooses to love.
I appreciate that the athletes, including the ones who are openly gay, have trained long and hard to get to Sochi. That is exactly why they should speak out.
As Mr. Gay World 2013 says, "When we can all be free then we can rest, but until then we must pay our dues as those who paid their dues for our current liberties." Right you are, Chris!
The new discourse within the gay community should be one of a right to sexual autonomy, and unadulterated acceptance of one's sexuality.
There is a difference between sexual orientation and gender identity, and it can't be expected that one movement will equally serve both groups.

I don't want you to walk away from this letter thinking that I'm not targeting your children. I most certainly am. Here are just a few things I want your kids to know.
I AM GAY. With those three words Michael Sam made history as the first openly gay African American male to possibly be drafted into the ranks of the NFL. I can only imagine that an enormous weight has been lifted from this 24-year-old man's shoulders.
This week I talked with Rea Carey, Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, about the 26th National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change, which recently took place in Houston, and her spin on LGBT issues.
We must remember that discrimination in any aspect of our lives and against any members of the community affects us all.
We've come a long way. We have an even longer way to go. This was illustrated by a seemingly minor or unimportant incident that brushed against my life in the past 24 hours.
We are living in two Americas at once. While we are arguing about the word God on a dollar bill, the religious right is dismantling secularism one brick at a time.
Doesn't it concern some among the Democratic leadership that the healthcare law may create lots of trouble for the party if all of its aspects have not had time to work out the kinks well before the 2016 election?
