The end of Kim Davis

If like me, you get tired of opening up your browser to find the latest LGBT news, and there staring you right in the face is Kim Davis, clad in a long-sleeved undershirt covered in a lengthy over-blouse, either crying, rejoicing or looking really scared, you can’t wait until she is just another https in the servers of Wikipedea.

My disappointment with the Pontiff’s visit

Pope Francis continues to send seismic shock waves across the globe, and the rapturous reception he received from his historic six-day US visit gave us a glimpse as to why.

LGBT couples can marry; now they must embrace social security

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organizations across California have focused on marriage equality for several years and were given a huge boost by the Supreme Court’s Windsor decision in June 2013 protecting same-sex marriage.

Less known and understood at the time was the seismic change that ruling ushered in for same-sex married couples in California by conveying equality in federal programs.

It takes a village

As the LGBT community works hard to maintain the progress they have made for civil rights, there is yet another problem the community must address; perhaps even more pressing than mariage equality.

The welfare and quality of life of our senior citizens seem to be falling by the wayside during this time of triumph, and they are beginining to feel abandoned with the very community they drove and helped to create.

Josh the Eagle Scout and his homophobic campus rant

Josh, the Eagle Scout, has plenty to say about God and virtue in this amusing YouTube video. Armed with a badge covered sash and plenty of judgment, the young self-proclaimed virgin gives college students an earful of what the Scout oath really means.

“On my honor, I will do my best to God and my country to obey the scout law at all times, to keep myself physically strong mentally awake…AND MORALLY STRAIGHT! Emphasis on the straight!”

If you think 'straight-acting' is an acceptable term, you're an a**hole

In a recent interview, director Roland Emmerich attempted to explain his baffling decision to make the protagonist of his much-maligned new film, "Stonewall," a fictional twinky corn-fed white cis gay man instead of one of the many non-white transgender people, genderqueer individuals, drag queens, butch dykes and sissy men present at the iconic riots credited with birthing the modern queer rights movement.

The LGBT heroes of 9/11 live on today

As we head into the day nobody will ever forget, we realize that nearly 3,000 people lost their lives on Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001.

Speculations abound about the theories behind 9/11, but there is one thing that will always remain true: people, gay and straight, with families lost their lives on that fateful day.

Fourteen years later and a lot has changed in the United States. We elected a black president, multi-cultural families now outweigh white ones, and marriage equality is now law.

The LGBT community is turning intolerance toward itself.

There was a time when the LGBT community stuck together. The plight of many was shared by all of us because we knew that without the strength in numbers change could not be made.

In 1969, the Stonewall riots were made up of people who were tired of being treated like second-class citizens and drag queens and gay Americans alike stood side-by-side to create a united front to the powers that tried so hard to tear us down.
