In an ideal world, Australia's famed swimming star Ian Thorpe should be known for one thing: dominating the sport of swimming. But of course, we don't live in an ideal world, and ever since Thorpe entered the limelight more than 15 years ago, rumors about his sexuality have swirled in the media and in the public forum.

Gay people have to be courageous to accept ourselves, be honest about our feelings, and live our lives. I struggle with that courage every day, but when I read the bull**** that people say, I just want to stand tall with my chest puffed out and say, "I'm a homosexual and there ain't nothin' wrong with that!"

Maybe Those Who Say 'Homosexual' Should Not Be Given Media Time

Joe Kort, Ph.D. | Posted 05.27.2014 | Gay Voices
Joe Kort, Ph.D.

The word "homosexual" has become a pejorative term for gays and lesbians. Those who are anti-gay always use the term "homosexual" and never "gay" because they say there is "nothing gay about being a homosexual," and that homosexuality is a choice, which we now know is not true.

Are 'Heteroflexible' and 'Homoflexible' Shades of 'Bisexual'?

Joe Kort, Ph.D. | Posted 03.09.2014 | Gay Voices
Joe Kort, Ph.D.

Labels work great when you're writing a book, giving a presentation or explaining to others who you are. But the truth is that these labels are limiting and only box people in, restricting what they are and can become.

How do we change our minds? How have we come from believing blacks were savages, not capable of work beyond field hands to recognizing their equal intelligence, drive, and abilities in all fields of endeavor?

The Unfortunate Celebration of Jason Collins' Coming Out

Ernest Owens | Posted 07.01.2013 | Black Voices
Ernest Owens

For one, the "coming out" dog and pony show that the media puts on now is getting tired. It should not be breaking news in 2013 for anyone to announce their sexuality. I understand how "momentous" and "unprecedented" all of this is, but I do find it exploitative and repetitive as well.

What basic fact about homosexuality do you, your parents, your local evangelical priest, and your science teacher most likely agree about? Try this one: Homosexuals don't reproduce. This verity is beyond obvious: Try as they may, two men or two women together cannot have babies.
