I ended up calling it quits with John via ghosting method. As much as I need a guy who is more "yea" and not "meh," he needs someone who is going to appreciate him for not only who he is but where he is in life.

The Evangelical Right's Theology On LGBT People Is Violence

Eliel Cruz | Posted 07.01.2016 | Religion
Eliel Cruz

There is a direct correlation to the anti-LGBT theology shared by religious leaders to the violence LGBT people face. This theology -- which dehumanizes, ostracizes, and demonizes LGBT people -- does not happen in a vacuum.

With the intention of resigning, I gathered our staff - men and women who had all served time - and told them that I was gay, that I was going to open up about my sexuality on Susskind and that I would be resigning from Fortune. Their responses stopped me in my tracks. Jackson asked, "Well, what are you gonna wear on TV?"

It's no secret that members of communities of color suffer the highest rates of gun violence. And they're members of the LGBT community too. In fact, most of the victims in the Orlando massacre were Latino or African American.

Dr. Richard T. Scott, Jr.

For some in the LGBT community, determining how they can start or even grow their families with the help of fertility experts is a process sometimes fraught with obstacles. I'm happy to say that in my nearly 30 years as a fertility doctor, third-party reproductive options have come a long way.

I saw the news on my phone and ran outside hollering. My dad lumbered up into the house and helped me navigate his TV to CNN. Initial reports and footage made at least one thing clear. "Lord have mercy, somebody did this because of hate," my dad said quietly.

Orlando Was A Loud And Overt Attack On The LGBT Community. #HeterosexualPrideDay Is A Subtle One.

Cassie Delaney | Posted 06.29.2016 | Queer Voices

Being comfortable in one's own skin is a feeling everyone deserves and something that should be celebrated. It's a pity that few realise that the celebration is about people arriving at that feeling rather than praising the colour, origination or orientation of the skin they live in.

Jarid Manos | Posted 06.29.2016 | Black Voices
Jarid Manos

A girl's rubber sandal stood out in the beach wrack, that pile of sexily-reeking sargassum and other decaying sea plants, creatures and things heaved up onto the South Florida shoreline by the restless Atlantic Ocean. The rainbow canvas foot strap with the SAVIOR patch was frayed and twisted.

Brown Girl Magazine

As an adult, there is nowhere I feel safer than in the arms of my partner. Today, I held her close as she shed tears at a vigil in Jackson Heights in honor of the Orlando victims. That safety, too, has been compromised. Today, I feel unsafe, and there is nowhere to turn.

The mass shooting at Orlando's gay nightclub Pulse jolted straight Americans in much the same way that 1969's Stonewall Rebellion accelerated the LGBT rights movement. Like Stonewall, Orlando catalyzed a collective self-reckoning and resolve for progress.

A month ago, one of the LGBT community's pioneers, William Meezan, passed away at the age of 69 from an infection that became too overwhelming for his body to fight. It's hard to condense the effect Bill had on the world into a few short paragraphs so I'll let the numerous awards and accolades he received speak for themselves.

Charles Sanchez

I am grateful to the gay men and women who came before me and fought so hard for us to have basic rights. The kind of bravery that it took to fight during Stonewall, to fight during the AIDS crisis, to fight against Don't Ask, Don't Tell, humbles me.
