As we gather around the table for a Thanksgiving dinner or volunteer at a local community center, let's all take a second to be thankful for the victories that our community has seen recently.
Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man elected to major public office in California, had held his office for less than a year before he was assassinated. But Milk helped erase some of the invisible boundaries defining who in our country can be elected officials.
The women highlighted in the film turn to soccer as an outlet to stand up to the system, challenging gender norms while fighting against violence, homophobia and corrective rape.
If the Department of Defense doesn't want to be dealing with situations like the one at the Air Force Academy all the time, then an Equal Opportunity (EO) policy covering sexual orientation needs to be put in place. At any time, President Obama could issue an executive order.
There is no night. There is no day. There are lights that go on and off. I am not a human; I am a weed that the world hates, so they are going to whack me down with fake illumination and peanut-butter-and-baloney sandwiches. They are going to march me to my grave.
As we approach American Thanksgiving, it is time to express gratitude for a very important development in the life of the Catholic Church, which I very much love. And that is the grace of your pontificate.
I'm not thrilled when someone calls a trans woman a "tranny." Nor am I thrilled that this term, which has been thrown at me on several occasions, is legitimized in the public eye through use by drag queens and cisgender gay men (which most drag queens are).
Last week IKEA, the Swedish home furnishing company famed for its easily assembled furniture and deliciously horsey meatballs, failed to take a stand for equality and inclusion when it removed an interview of a lesbian couple from its Russian IKEA catalog.

Brides, no matter their sexual orientation, should have the right to consider wearing pants on their wedding day, and know that they can still be considered a bride.
Whether the topic is marriage or LGBTQ groups, Thanksgiving or Memorial Day, ON Scripture interprets current events from the perspective of the Bible, and this makes it a valuable tool for people of faith across the country.
Illinois. Hawaii. New Jersey. The list of states recognizing same sex marriage has exploded to 16 plus the District of Columbia. With its surprising c...
LoveandPride.com and I are starting the "Missing Link" campaign to help raise awareness about the injustices that the LGBT community in Russia is facing on the eve of the Olympics in Sochi. Like my company, I am committed to fighting for inclusion and ending discrimination against all people.
I dream about the day when families with transgender children will be able to have classic Thanksgiving celebrations. Unfortunately, many families like ours celebrate alone or with a few close friends because they are not considered part of the extended family anymore.
We are creating a platform for Seventh-day Adventist queer students to share their stories. We're not out to change anyone's theology. This is a campaign to put faces behind the conversations being had so carelessly in our churches, homes, and schools.
When I was 6 years old, I told my mother that I wished that she would die so that I could have a daddy. We were in a yellow NYC taxicab on the way to my sixth birthday party. I had found my non-biological mother's Achilles' heel and swung a golf club into it. And it felt like shit for both of us.
