Reflections on Marriage (Part 1): What Marriage Means

Julie R. Enszer | August 21, 2014 | Gay Voices
What does marriage mean to me and my wife? How is it different from what we imagined? How is it the same as what society presents about marriage? Can we live queerly in marriage? How? Why? Is marriage good for our sexuality? For our sex lives? Is marriage good for our sense of happiness? Or does it bring new layers of misery?

Sex, Intimacy, and Being Gay

J Nelson Aviance | August 21, 2014 | Gay Voices
Sex seems central to intimate and romantic relationships. If it is a means of intimate communication, and communication is the secret to a lasting and healthy relationship, why don't we gay men talk about it that way more often?

Bank Of America Deal A Victory For New York Families

Eric T. Schneiderman | August 21, 2014 | Politics
This settlement sends a strong message that banks that prey on customers and investors will be held accountable. I will continue to investigate financial institutions that bend the rules for their own benefit, and pursue equal justice for all New York families.

The Media: Cherry Picking News Stories and Failing the Public

Pat LaMarche | August 21, 2014 | Politics
When the press ignores the discussion at hand: issues as vital to the health and security of the working class as middle class wages, the utility workers, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans employment rates, and government employee pensions, one shouldn't be surprised that the public transit system is begging for school supplies.

The Muscular Elephant in the Room: Gay Men and Steroid Use

Renato Barucco | August 21, 2014 | Gay Voices
The title's muscular elephant is not a pun; it's purely proverbial: We don't talk about anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) abuse in gay men, but we know it's there.

A lot has happened in my life since the last time I posted. I moved to Portland about four weeks ago because as much as I enjoyed living in Bend, I just wasn't making any progress in finding a job. I'm temporarily staying with friends, whom I can't thank enough,...

Turning 20 Twice

Joe Hutcheson | August 21, 2014 | Gay Voices
I now find myself turning the age that is supposed to be "the new 30," but that feels like a mathematical impossibility. I've realized that it's not the aging process itself that I fear. I do my best to fear only things I have some control over, like icky spiders and abdominal fat. It is the stigma of age that I fear most.

The Ethics of the Ebola Outbreak: Who Should Receive Experimental Treatment?

Ruth Macklin | August 21, 2014 | Healthy Living
The need for these drugs is greatest in the countries where the epidemic is raging. Their residents come first. Because clinical trials for safety and efficacy can be carried out only in such countries, even the "compassionate use" of an unproven drug in severely limited supply should be granted first to inhabitants of the nations that have been most severely affected.

In Ferguson, the Most Important Color Might Be Green

Mechele Dickerson | August 21, 2014 | Politics
As is true in Ferguson and other communities in the U.S., a gulf now exists between the rich and the poor, and between blacks and whites. This gulf is making it harder to empathize with people we don't know, and with people who are different from us.
