Terrence Chappell

It doesn't matter where you live or what kind of car you drive; to some you're still a n*****, and that is the cold, hard truth about the world we live in today, and it's what my parents had to teach me growing up. I don't experience this with my identity as a gay man.

Mark Baer | Posted 11.18.2014 | Gay Voices
Mark Baer

Many people seem fixated on the fact that the actual cause of homosexuality has not yet been established with any degree of certainty.

Kenneth H. Mayer, M.D. | Posted 11.10.2014 | Gay Voices
Kenneth H. Mayer, M.D.
