With the Supreme Court's historic decision today legalizing same-sex marriage nationally and the 46th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots this weekend, it seems a perfect time to look back at the history of the LGBTQ rights movements. It is true that we have a long way to go, but today...

#WhyIStayed Is Our Hashtag, Too

(1) Comments | Posted September 12, 2014 | 11:04 AM

#WhyIStayed is not a hashtag about battered women.

I'm not surprised that the media is covering this hashtag that way. And I'm not surprised they are focusing on judging survivors' actions instead of abusers'. I'm not surprised some Twitter users are making jokes about the hashtag or that so many...

Cleaning up the poop of others has become one of my favorite things to do in 2014.

I love October for the weather, the candy, and especially the snippets of queer history being shared around the Web. So many sites and pages that I love (including HuffPost Gay Voices) join in the celebration by sharing "on this day in LGBT history" stories throughout the month...

Last week I heard another leader against same-sex marriage use the term "traditional marriage" and refer to "redefining marriage." Thomas Peters of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) was on NPR arguing with Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry. Mr. Peters disagreed with the way Mr. Wolfson was...

In times of strife, many people turn to God. Others turn to another sense of a higher power or meaning, however they define it. That sense of something bigger than any of us is comforting. While I knew since before I came out to myself that there are many gay...

Non-Facebook Stalking

(15) Comments | Posted January 3, 2013 | 1:40 PM

There are no scars from the domestic violence I endured. I never had a black eye or a bloody lip or bruises to cover up. My girlfriend, "Luciana," had a hold on me in a way that doesn't leave a physical trace. She stalked me.

I don't mean that she...

Let Them Eat Vegan Cake

(57) Comments | Posted November 20, 2012 | 10:45 AM
