It had been six years since I delicately disclosed to my teenage son that I was dating a woman for the very first time. But my surprise announcement was quickly eclipsed by his sardonic response. "Mom, I always knew you were a lesbian!" he quipped, without a hint of surprise.
Dec. 1 was World AIDS Day! And international theme for 2015 is "Getting to zero; end Aids by 2030." The national theme for this year is "The time to...
In the premiere episode of Unzipped Dallas, get to know the all new cast as they discuss their relationship status, their turn ons, and the qualities they look for in a potential match.
At an event earlier this year, I met two women who, as it turned out, were not only business partners but also life partners. They left their marriages and grown children in their 50s and have been together ever since. My curiosity piqued, I'm afraid I monopolized their time with my many questions.
I'm a person. I'm someone's child, someone's brother, someone's uncle. I'm a cousin, a nephew, a friend. I'm a human being. I deserve to live my life to the fullest just like anybody else.
In the recent period I've seen a number of films about the history and legacy of Nazism, most of them German and current, and I read about a new book on two legends of German cinema. The juxtaposition of these events in time seemed coincidental. Or was it?
Fox was irresponsible in trying to use the suggestion of gayness to insult a black man. It is this kind of subtle homophobia juxtaposed with the glorification of hypermasculinity that convinces some black men to stay in the closet. Sex between two consenting single adults is never a bad thing or anyone else's business.
Dear Christians, do know that just because you think you're right doesn't mean that everyone else is wrong. Though I no longer consider myself a Christian, I'm still keeping a space for God in my heart. I didn't lose my religion. Instead, I'm creating my own.
Recently, I had the opportunity to engage with nearly 1,600 ex-Christians who completed an extensive survey about their Christian background and the whys behind their deconversion--rejection of faith for agnosticism or atheism.
When I was younger, I could not tell my mother that a fulfilling life was in store because I did not know what the future would hold for me. But I am older now, and I have a 20-year (and counting) relationship from which to draw.
Scott Lively, an infamous fundamentalist bigot, is one of those obsessed with hating gays. He has gone so far as to twist history in an attempt to prove, in long, tedious manuscripts, that Nazism was a homosexual movement and that gays were responsible for the Holocaust.
No one ever taught us the rules about how to relate to women on a romantic level. We have to struggle through the process of trial and error to figure out where to meet new people in the gay community, or what to say to start up a conversation with someone we like.
No one -- including Catholic leaders -- want to return to the days when homosexuals were feared and stigmatized. It was a time when homosexuality was viewed as a problem so profound that it affected the total personality.
Surely every American knows that women have the same decision-making capacity as men, and that our right to participate in elections was long overdue. Don't they?
Time is running out on conservative Christianity in America. It must change. If its adherents don't "put their swords away," they will kill God in America. And this time there won't be a resurrection.
For a moment after I finished, I felt this sense of confidence rising inside of me. I presumed that my father was going to say, 'OK, fine,' and then just accept the situation like it was no big deal. But when he finally spoke his mind, I realized that I wasn't ready for what was to come.
