The story of the main character you play, a college senior who recently came out of the closet to his two goofy but loving roommates, seemed extremely compelling to me. There was so much potential to make something endearing, comical, and erotic.

What It's Like to Be a Gay Country Singer in Nashville

Kevin Thornton | Posted 01.24.2015 | Gay Voices

I love Nashville. For the most part, Nashville has loved me. I've had an on-again-off-again love affair with this town for almost two decades. But I do sometimes wonder if things would have played out differently had I pretended for the public.

How Could Anyone Hate The Game?

Brad Liberti

While I am very much interested in busting through the haze of lust and courtship to find real love, I must be honest, I have no desire at all to stop playing games. When it comes to dating, I absolutely love playing games. I love the entire pursuit.

Who Am I to Judge. BTW, Your Love Is Bad

Our love is not bad. Our love is not destroying the world. The most significant threat to the family is failure to recognize all families. If the Pope truly wants to reach out to the marginalized, he should truly open his arms to everyone.

Overcoming the Sins of Gay Sex

When one is told gay sex is a sin their whole life, how does one overcome the feeling that they may be doing something wrong? Although I may not have the answers, I'm confident the LGBT community does.

New Gay Orleans

Eddie Parsons

New Orleans is returning to a moment in time where it was a destination of dreamers and doers. Everyone is talking about what projects are in the works and comparing notes on indie bands. The sleazy side is still there but overshadowed by guys looking to have a conversation or possibly an actual date.

The Supreme Court's New Gay Marriage Case Tests MLK's Dream of True Equality

Lisa Bloom

How fitting that just before Martin Luther King Jr. weekend our Supreme Court justices agreed to decide whether our constitution requires all 50 states to recognize same-sex marriages. As Dr. King said the night before he died, "All we say to America is be true to what you said on paper." Equal means equal.

The Many Voices of Being a Man

While Roman and Nyro begin to navigate the tween express lane toward adulthood, I find myself connecting with and interpreting the many voices of being a man that I absorbed from my father.

"Coming Out" in Hollywood.

Harry Cook | Posted 01.16.2015 | Gay Voices
Harry Cook

I've been thinking a lot lately about the choice actors or actresses have when they decide to "come out" publicly. When I did it, I got a lot of people genuinely asking why is it necessary? I'd had discussions often about the fact that straight people needn't "come out" and a personal life is personal, so why bother saying anything.

Few issues have been more divisive within the church of the 20th and 21st century than the "full acceptance of LGBT Christians in the Church."

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.

Is the Gay Community Scaring Away Our Straight Allies?

Mason Hsieh | Posted 01.14.2015 | Gay Voices
Mason Hsieh

When one of my new straight-male friends asked if he could sit in on a QSA meeting, I immediately said yes and took him to a panel on LGBT dating, hoping to show him how cool the queer community is. The discussion was mostly civil, until my fledgling ally worked up the courage to ask one simple question.

Growing Up Gay With Britney Spears

Weston Ashley | Posted 01.14.2015 | Gay Voices
Weston Ashley

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.

My Fellow Christians, What Do We Do When Your Religious Beliefs Violate My Religious Beliefs?

Lorie Burch | Posted 01.13.2015 | Gay Voices
Lorie Burch

I'm not saying my religious beliefs are the way for everyone to live or believe. But neither are yours. In fact, they are not truly universal religious beliefs but your personal beliefs. And that's OK. But you don't get to impose those on everyone else to prevent them from living, working, and loving with the same freedom that you are afforded by virtue of who you are.

Being known as a "gay-friendly" city in the bible belt is like being known for having a lot of lemonade in a place where everyone hates lemonade.

I want to offer three recommendations to all who believe in freedom and are praying that 2015 is the year that future history books and major motion pictures show that we stood as communities and as a nation for justice for all. Having worked with so many powerful voices in this current generation, I believe we can.

How to Respond When Someone Asks You to Stop Flaunting Your Homosexuality Online

Kevin Thornton | Posted 01.12.2015 | Gay Voices
Kevin Thornton

This "stop flaunting it" sentiment really gets my big gay goat. Being gay isn't some weird hobby. It's not a penis fetish. (Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan.) It's who I am. My sexuality runs a thread through every part of my being, just as it does for all people both gay and straight.
