The new Jim Crow targets LGBTQ Americans, too

Since Trump has taken office there has been an erosion of LGBTQ civil rights under the guise of religious liberty. 

Last week the U. S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments for the case “Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.”  

Why we are disabling comments on SDGLN.com

SDGLN has disabled the comments section on our website.

San Diego Gay and Lesbian News is following suit with many respected news publications by disabling the comments section on our website. There are a few reasons why we chose to make this difficult decision.

Should the sins of our spouses fall on us?

Many are asking, myself included, is it fair to hold Rosenberg responsible for the actions of his spouse? 

Democratic Senate President Stanley C.  Rosenberg, 68, looked heartbroken, shocked and devastated during an impromptu press conference outside of his office at the State House where he publicly addressed allegations that his spouse, Bryon Hefner, 38, groped and assaulted four men who do business before the Senate.

Donna Brazile’s revenge with “Hacks”

Brazile, an LGBTQ ally, is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

Since the election of Donald Trump, most Americans on both sides of the political aisle feel American democracy is under siege.

The Matthew Shepard murder revisited

New book about Matthew Shepard has a controversial view.

With October being LGBTQ History Month it allows the LGBTQ community to look back at historical events.  And Matthew Shepard’s murder is one of them. 

This October marks nineteen years since the death of Matthew Shepard. In October 1998, Shepard, then 21, was a first-year college student at University of Wyoming.

Whitney Houston comes out posthumously

But it was her ex-spouse, Brown, who over time came to believe Whitney married him with an ulterior motive. 

2017 is a year of open but not new revelations about Whitney Houston.

Five years ago, on Feb. 11, 2012, Houston was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton Hotel room on the eve of the Grammy Awards.  

Allegations at the time surfaced that pop superstar Whitney Houston was murdered.

LGBTQ History Month’s emerging canon

The invisibility of LGBTQ and women of color is not because there is a paucity of us that exist or made history.

Winston Churchill once said that “History is written by the winners.” When the Stonewall Riots occurred in 1969 the history of more than a century-long oppressed people finally got national attention.

And, since that historical moment, the suppressed and closeted oral histories of our fierce and courageous LGBTQ  brothers and sisters began to be documented - openly and uncensored. 

Pat Robertson blames Las Vegas tragedy on "profound" disrespect for president

Pat Robertson blames lack of Godly authority and disrespect for Donald Trump on Las Vegas massacre.

Pat Robertson isn’t one to let a national tragedy go by without making some sort of announcement about how it’s an act of biblical proportions.

Rather than honor the dead and wounded in Vegas, he made a sweeping commentary about who is to blame, and yesterday that blame fell on people who don’t support the president among other things.

Pink Floyd's "The Wall," a Modern Warning 35-years Later?

Pink Floyd's "The Wall" is maybe more pertinent than ever.

One of the scariest music videos of the 80’s was from the highly successful rock opera and personal double album from Pink Floyd called “The Wall.” Odd how that title is political even today. 

There are actually a few music videos on YouTube which showcase the 80’s tune, and motion picture of the same name, and each of them arguably a prediction of current times.
