You can't have your cake and eat it too, senator. One can't favor rule by popular opinion or rule by court of law only when it's convenient for their cause.
Britney was there for me when my father and stepmother sent me to rehab for being too gay. Her personal struggles before and after the ensuing years helped me as I readjusted back to school and into college. I didn't care if she shaved her head. I just wanted her to be okay and yes, just wished everyone would leave her alone.
Sometimes it's tough to sit through a one-man show, as so many factors are in play. Not only the actor and the text, but the subject matter as well.
In the near future, marriage equality may arrive in all 50 states and territories and the current patchwork of marriage equality jurisdictions will merely be a historical map in a Wikipedia entry. If that day comes, the documents listed listed here do not become irrelevant or even redundant.
Support marriage equality not just for the LGBT community, but for the awkwardly pubescent girls having their hearts broken by well-dressed, closeted young men.
Let us not forget that transgender is an umbrella that encompasses all persons whose authentic identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female genders and assigned gender at birth. Male and female are increasingly being presented as two distinct states, with nothing between.
We're winning when young people have the internet's arsenal at the ready. We're winning when online discourse translates into offline action. We're winning when seemingly "niche" groups reflect a new generation of LGBT people who defend their own survival, and others.
By suggesting that gay and bisexual men are at risk for HIV and straight people aren't, the FDA's guidelines misinform the public. To the extent that it contributes to ignorance of the risks associated with certain types of heterosexual sex, the FDA's policy, even in its revised form, actually presents a public-health concern.
While I'm not saying every little boy should drop their race car in exchange for a princess; I long for the day when Cinderella can hop into a Hot Wheels and drive off into the sunset... and it will be no big deal.
The resounding international LGBTI-affirming commitments in the communique are a direct result of strong U.S. Government support to organize as inclusive a convening as possible.
I truly believe if American Christians stayed more focused on the message and teachings of Jesus, many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people would not have the annual angst of searching for home for the holidays.
What tests my patience, what troubles me beyond all else, is our propensity for pointing the finger at others while ignoring our own flaws. The truth is that the U.S. is not yet at a point where it can self-righteously condemn others for their intolerance toward LGBT people, at least not with a straight face. Someday we will get there, and we will lead by example. But not today.
Danny was never able to forget what it meant to be a homeless teen. He overcame homelessness and built a good life for himself, but he bore the scars in his psyche, and in his body. He contracted hepatitis while he was homeless; it shortened his life.
2014 was another blockbuster year for the freedom to marry. In January gay couples could marry in 19 states. By December that number had skyrocketed to 35 -- covering two thirds of the American people. The momentum for marriage is off the charts, and the joy and security marriage brings are now shared by millions of gay Americans.
Dear Santa, This is a little awkward, as we haven't talked in quite awhile...as in 21 years "awhile."
Is there a road map that guides us to an understanding of each other? Gena Rowlands and Cheyenne Jackson find themselves at odds across a dance floor until the dance lessons themselves bring these two difficult people together as they co-star in Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks.
