Attend any major LGBTQ political rally or hearing where issues affecting the rights of the entire LGBTQ community are debated and decided, for example, and you will find most of its leaders are male. This therefore begs the question, 'Where are the women?'

One Ounce of Normal

She's given me more than the ability to feel normal and we live it each and every day. The unconditional love we have, even through our growing pains, is a reminder that normal is what we make it.

Judge Not! Of course, like anything else, this would not be the case with every experience of life. There are things that happen around us and, sometimes, even to us that appear to be completely random and devoid of any rational explanation.

I Couldn't Disagree More With What David Brooks Said In His Article "How Covenants Make Us"

Mark Baer | Posted 04.15.2016 | Politics
Mark Baer

I typically agree with much of what David Brooks has to say. However, I'm afraid that he was way off the mark with his article "How Covenants Make Us." Demographic diversity in the United States is a good thing. The problem has to do with the lack of integration and assimilation of demographically diverse communities.

Pollo Del Mar

Now a full-fledged pop-rock phenom, King is taking a different route than the musical stars she grew up hearing on radio. She hopes the authenticity of her music, and decision to lyrically bask in her own imperfections, make her more "relatable" than most of her contemporaries.

Tammy Nelson, Ph.D.

It's a delicate balance; finding a marriage that works and exciting, adventurous sex. But how does one cross the line and venture into the stormy seas of an "open marriage" without losing the safety of a monogamous partnership? Is sex with someone other than your spouse really worth the risk? And how do you even bring up the topic?

Carol: A Real Love Story?

Joanne Fleisher | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Joanne Fleisher

t is not your typical lesbian love story. It lacks some of the passion and hot sex that makes many coming out movies compelling. But, when you encounter a magnetic attraction to someone that will rip your life to shreds, the unfolding of the love story may at first seem understated and unclear. When you are married to a man and your lesbian catalyst appears, anything can happen.

On November 28, 2015, my spouse and I went to see Trumbo, which is based upon the life of Dalton Trumbo and how it was impacted during one of the most shameful times in U.S. history -- the McCarthy era. The film interested me because of many comparable similarities today and because the father of close childhood friends of mine had been included on the Hollywood-blacklist.

For too long masculine-presenting women, genderqueer people and transmen had to search for clothes in men's and boys departments, where all the clothes were cut to fashion industry norms of a male body: The shoulders drooped, the arms dangled, the chests and hips just didn't work.
