The True Meaning Of Patriotism

Bill Konigsberg | Posted 10.01.2016 | Queer Voices
Bill Konigsberg

To be a true patriot, we must love the clashes of culture, race, national origin, sexual orientation, class, politics, ideology, and religion. We must relish the fact that this country will never be united, because these clashes are in many cases unsolvable. I think the key may be to embrace the chaos.

Hot-Headed in Houston: An LGBTQ Author Goes Rogue

Bill Konigsberg | Posted 09.15.2016 | Queer Voices

I realized that the very fact that so many schools declined my invitation, and that this school wanted me to talk about LGBTQ suicide statistics without focusing on the word "gay," was the problem.

The cause was something that hit close to home. The Happy Hippie Foundation works to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations. I'm proud to say that I'm me... and I'm part of the LGBT community.

Skylar Kergil

When asked what I did on YouTube, I used to say that I made videos to help other trans youth. However, the truth is that everyone who has reached out to me has helped me. That's what is vital about community; it hasn't been a unilateral mentoring relationship but a let's-help-one-another-and-see-what-we-can-build-together-from-this partnership.

Stay In

Matthew Ebert

Come out -- but if there's a lightning storm going on, stay inside. Stay there until you can come out safely. Violence may not always end up with the victim walking off in one piece and wearing a purse full of gold. Why? We haven't cured any of this bigotry with viral videos. And sometimes it gets worse.

Liesel Reinhart | Posted 10.12.2014 | Media

For anyone under 30, it may be difficult to imagine a time when the gay-rights movement wasn't operating at a milestone-a-minute pace.
