Requiem for the American Century

Seventy-three years ago, Henry Luce, the publisher of Time and Life magazines, called on his countrymen to "create the first great American Century." No one today could claim that this is Time's century, or the American Century, or perhaps anyone else's. Even the greatest empires now seem to have shortened lifespans.

Don't get me wrong, Sierra: Appropriation does happen, but gay men didn't steal "your" shit. They helped draw, color, sew, produce and conceive of it in the first place.

We all can do better at deploying language, style and dance moves that has cultural attachments that are not our own in such a way that it feels inclusive.

Jason Cianciotto

Did the World Health Organization (WHO) really declare that all gay men should take Pre-exposure Prophylaxis? With my social media feeds showing multiple articles with similar titles in such a short timeframe, I knew this was an issue that called for a response from GMHC.

Fat: Ending the War That Nobody Started

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 06.16.2014 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

The evidence continues to accrue -- with almost surprising frequency -- that we should, indeed, eat less meat, butter, and cheese (before we even factor in the environmental considerations, which frankly we should do). We just shouldn't replace them with donuts, Snackwells and soda.

White Privilege Doesn't Mean What You Think it Means

Kristen Howerton | Posted 07.13.2014 | Media
Kristen Howerton

I realize now, as I hope Tal can someday realize: white privilege isn't about me individually. It's not a personal attack. White privilege is a systemic cultural reality that I can either choose to ignore, or choose to acknowledge and attempt to change. It has nothing to do with my worth as a person or my own personal struggle.
