Jesus Is Gay

RJ Martin | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
RJ Martin

Our Jesus is gay. Theirs is not. Really he's the same man, woman or transgender (that might make the most sense) but always the same God. We all must clasp hands and venerate the cross he carried (Protestant) or carries (Catholic) for all our salvation.

Shame on SHU

Anthony Romeo | Posted 05.29.2016 | Queer Voices
Anthony Romeo

Organizations like Seton Hall, should they continue to live in an archaic time where it is okay to pretend that the world doesn't look the way it does, that the people in it are less human than others, and that some are less deserving of equality than others, will waste away into the annals of time.

An Open Letter To Mr. Robertson: Come To Jesus

Victor M. Feraru

You owe the community you bashed more than an old fashioned "kumbaya" that your recent press release tried to sing. You owe me and everyone who has watched your program an apology. This is a chance to make lemons out of lemonade. This is an opportunity for you to do the right thing.

My Interview With Michael Iemma About His Film, Stitch, Part I

Michael Carosone | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Michael Carosone

I embrace a title such as this because "Hell Yeah! I am a gay filmmaker who is going to tell my stories about my life." Our community has been denied this freedom for far, far too long.

The Moral Arc of the Universe and Marriage Equality in the United Methodist Church

Christopher H. Evans | Posted 08.31.2013 | Religion
Christopher H. Evans

The question facing the United Methodist Church as it wrestles with its stance on GLBT issues is not to discard a reliance on scripture, but to recognize that scripture can only take us so far.

The Best Part of DOMA's Repeal: Its Impact on Immigration Reform

Charlene Obernauer | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Charlene Obernauer

While I'll certainly benefit from this change in policy, for bi-national GLBT couples, DOMA's repeal not only legalizes their relationships, but also makes them able to legally live in the same country together. Even immigration reform would not have had this impact on GLBT immigrants.

Grace Poore

Seeking justice for violations of their rights is difficult, since LBT people often suffer from violence and discrimination at the hands of the very authorities that are supposed to protect them.

Pandering to Latino Voters Won't Help GOP

Charlene Obernauer | Posted 04.12.2013 | Latino Voices
Charlene Obernauer

The values of an out-of-touch, stale, and offensive party are no longer attractive to voters, even if Republicans change their tone on immigration reform in an effort to make nice with Latinos.

A Queer Pastor Prays For The Boy Scouts

Rev. Emily C. Heath | Posted 03.30.2013 | Religion
Rev. Emily C. Heath

While the Boy Scouts trust that I have the moral fitness to determine the moral fitness of others, they do not trust that I have the moral fitness to be a Scout leader myself. The reason, simply, is because I am gay.

Time for a Great Orator to Become a Great President

Charles Karel Bouley | Posted 03.23.2013 | Politics
Charles Karel Bouley

Thank you, President Barack Hussein (I'm not afraid of his middle name) Obama. You did more today in one speech than most have in a lifetime. Because you made me, for once, feel like an American that should, and will, one day be treated equally under the law.

Walking the Plank: Out and Proud at the DNC 2012?

Victor M. Feraru | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Victor M. Feraru

Much like the sit-ins that took place merely an hour away in the little big town of Greensboro, the queer community finds itself having a historic moment -- and we are very aware of this. The democrats are walking the proverbial plank.

The Oklahoma Daily

Gender-neutral housing means the choice to live with someone who students know will be supportive of their sexuality or gender identity. It means freedom from discomfort, discrimination, harassment and fear.

Amy Shiner

A trip to transcending boundaries, something that rarely happens in a heterosexual-based society, is a way to push the envelope. Built on a growing community, there is something for everyone who has ever been viewed as "different."

Rabbi Michael Lerner | Posted 05.25.2011 | Religion
Rabbi Michael Lerner

The rights of homosexuals are supported by an overwhelming majority of the American Jewish community. That support is not only based on a memory of shared victimhood, but also on the core values of our own Jewish tradition.
