My straight lady friends love to pepper me with "Is it true that..." types of questions. Like I'm the answer key, the Teacher's Edition, to what men think and feel. Like I'm willing to be an inside trader. And the truth is, I am.
Naturally, I was heartened and optimistic this morning when I read that a Republican finally stepped up and was calling for charges in the case. Unfortunately, Arkansas State Senator has called for charges against Kathy O'Kelley, Chief of the Springdale, Arkansas police.
For decades I have been an avid fan of Alison Bechdel's work. What lesbian wasn't? In a world where our stories were so rarely told in an authentic manner, Alison's world and the characters she brought to life gave us a way to feel validated in a way that media representations never did.
For years Olivia sent out its mailers covered up. For years my Jerusalem Report magazine arrived in my mailbox uncovered. And then for the last twen...
The Curve Magazine Android app has been suspended again. Why? "Violation of the sexually explicit material provision of the Content Policy." That's what they say anyway. Except the app contains NO sexually explicit material.
Long distance relationships are incredibly difficult, especially if the distance is between TWO oceans and a massive continent.
Those of you on the coast need to remember that when it comes to LGBT issues, the Midwest and the South is about a decade behind you. Now, think back to the way things were a decade ago for you. See how we can't abandon ship just yet?
New York City's Times Square - with its throngs of visitors, office workers, hawkers of fake designer wear and life-sized Elmos and Buzz Lightyears - today serves as the unusual setting for a United Nations video launch.
The reality is that there is no Christian persecution in the United States. Not being allowed to discriminate based on completely self-professed and arbitrary "sincerely held religious beliefs" is not an example of persecution. Having the only federal religious holiday be Christmas is a characteristic of a group granted special privileges by civil society.
We haven't heard much from the church in recent years, but this week, Steve Drain -- one of the first church members not to be related to the Phelps family by blood -- admitted that national gay marriage is coming.
Taking turns. One of the first and best lessons we learn as a kid. Makes sense now more than ever to play by those rules. That way, everyone on the playground is assured a good time.
I am speaking to the LGBT people who are watching all of the latest events in America unfold. I just want to take this time to remind those LGBT folk that are so quick to condemn the riots in Baltimore that if it were not for rioting, we would not be where we are today.
Sure, safe and easy might feel nice. But new and exciting feels amazing. If you're meant to be, you'll be. Trust me.
You are the world's most influential religious leader. You could protect many youths from harm by teaching that there is nothing wrong with being LGBT, that there is nothing wrong with LGBT children. Doing so would lessen the epidemic of LGBT youth suffering homelessness.
Even with the odds increasing after last month's Supreme Court arguments that the court will lift the ban on gay marriages nationwide, most states still can discriminate against gays with impunity.
