All that time I said I wasn't indoctrinating anyone with my beliefs about gay and lesbian and bi and trans and queer people? That was a lie. All 25 years of my career as an LGBTQ activist, I have been on a consistent campaign of trying to change people's minds about us. I want to make them like us.

LGBT News | Posted 05.06.2015 | Gay Voices

As the reputed Republican Hopeless for the 2016 presidential election, Carson takes every opportunity to congratulate himself on his ability to speak his mind at any cost -- the cost in this case being the reinforcement of an utterly nonsensical and dangerous notion, but the cost in all cases being rationality and someone else's well-being.

The Baffling Paradox

Shari Johnson

Homosexuality. Abortion. These two unrelated "buzzwords," "hot topics," "controversial issues" evoke strong reactions and emotions whenever and wherever mentioned. It is my belief the day is coming when they will be connected in ways we never thought possible. I have been on both sides of each of these issues.

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.

Michelangelo Signorile

If human rights abuses really were the metric by which we decided on trade and travel, the U.S. should be banning Americans from visiting our staunchest allies and our most popular vacation spots (including much of the Caribbean, where homosexuality is illegal, though it's not illegal in Cuba). It would literally be much of the globe.

Looking for Friends In All the Wrong Places

Dating websites are for dating, not for finding people who want someone to grab dinner with every now and again or who need a ride to the airport at holiday time. I have those people in my circle, and I'm already not getting flowers and sex from them.
