  • If You Don't Go Down, You Gotta Wonder Why

    "Sweetheart, that's all very nice, but if you're not going to eat pussy, you're not a dyke," a lesbian character on Sex and the City famously tells Charlotte, who, upon being asked if she's a lesbian, has answered that she is not but loves the "company" of women. I have to agree with the lesbian. Anything short of eating pussy is simply being besties. And that's all well and good, but girls, you gotta go down."Why?" you ask. "Who are you to tell me what lesbian sex looks like?"And so I must reply, "Why wouldn't you?"When it comes to lesbians and gays, the differences between the ruling stereotypes are amazing. The former are undersexed, the latter oversexed, the theory goes.[…]

  • The Little (Gay) Prince Who Wanted to Commit Suicide

    One of the mottoes of Saint Francis of Assisi is "Tanto l'uomo è di scienza quanto opera," which is to say that what we know comes straight from what we do.When I was 18 I asked my mother to put me away in a mental hospital. I told her to do this so that thoughts of homosexuality and suicide would not cross my mind. This had to be done, for I was in unbearable pain. But my mother did not do what I had asked; she did not want to see me go back into that horrid place.Instead she sent me to a doctor near our home. Her name was Luce, which means "light" in Italian, and she lived in[…]

  • Clear the Smoke, I'm Coming Through

    Lately I'm beginning to feel like a minority in the lesbian community. As an African American lesbian it's very rare to find a woman who likes to date slim women. Thick women are all the rage. And if you don't date a thick sista you risk having your Black card taken from you. I am slim and I like to date slim women. There, I said it. And now I'm beginning to feel like an even smaller minority. Almost every woman I meet, correspond with or just happen upon, smokes weed. I don't smoke weed and I don't date women who do. So now my dating pool has become that much smaller. Navigating the lesbian dating scene in the African[…]

  • Bryan Fischer wishes the US had Russian-style anti-gay laws

    Bryan Fischer wishes the US had Russian-style anti-gay laws Bryan Fischer continues to complain that the United States does not have Russian-style anti-gay "propaganda" laws. In fact, Fischer lauds Russian President Putin as "the lion of Christianity" for leading his nation's crackdown on gays.On yesterday's radio broadcast, Fischer again voiced his support for implementing such laws in America, declaring that it is "inexcusable" that these sorts of laws are not being put into place here."That's a policy we ought to have in the United States," he said of the Russian laws. "It's inexcusable that we allow vulnerable, innocent young children to be indoctrinated, brainwashed, propagandized into thinking that homosexual conduct is perfectly normal and absolutely benign behavior when it absolutely is not":I want to point out that the kind[…]

  • Unconditional Love and PrEP

    Two years ago, something unexpected happened. I was seven years into an incredible relationship. We married in 2008 during the brief window when it was legal for same-sex couples to wed in California, and my husband and I became poster boys for marriage equality (really -- our wedding picture was on a poster). We initiated the process of adopting a child. Never in my life had I been so happy. Then, suddenly, my husband shared news that I hadn't seen coming: He wanted something different and would be filing for divorce. My world crumbled. The next six months were the most painful of my life. I couldn't sleep, lost my appetite, and went numb inside. On the outside, I refused[…]

    Harvey Fierstein's Casa and Other Save Havens You may know the safety of family, trustworthy friends, even colleagues and clients, who manage -- sometimes to our astonishment -- to celebrate (or tolerate) our eccentricities.But for so many others, as with the mostly heterosexual transvestites in Casa Valentina, Fierstein's new, often uproarious drama, dearly held passions are closeted and can only find expression in a perceived environment of shared interests.Fierstein's work is set in 1962, based on the real-life Casa Susanna. But a quick glimpse of Meetups confirms how socially important spending time with like-minded people still is. Even though most of us at some point know the hurt of feeling like an outsider, we're also privy to how powerful and beneficial this tribal bonding can be. In[…]

Due to a complicated delivery, she needed a blood transfusion and at that moment, my mom had HIV+ blood put into her body. When she was finally diagnosed, she was given only a few years to live. By that time, she had already given birth to my sister Laura[…]

  • Why Is Prison Rape Hollywood's Solution To Violent Crime? (VIDEO)

    Why Is Prison Rape Hollywood's Solution To Violent Crime? (VIDEO) In the golden age of cinema, the good guy would warn the bad guys, "You're going to swing for that."Today, Hollywood cops don't taunt evildoers with execution. More often, the man with the badge promises criminals a lifetime of hell on earth -- as a rape victim.A supercut of prison rape threats in crime dramas, low-budget comedies and even Oscar-contending films shows just how absurd -- and how common -- Hollywood's go-to taunt has become, even though rape ranks just below child molestation on the not-funny list."Do you know what happens to pretty boys like you when they go up to the farm on statutory charges," Woody Harrelson says in HBO's "True Detective," a line echoed almost word-for-word by Christopher[…]

  • Female Student Reportedly Kicked Out Of Prom For Wearing Pants

    School officials were reportedly not down with this student's prom outfit.

"I thought it was because of the hat or the leather jacket, and I was like, 'Well I'll take those off,' and she was like, 'No, it's the pants.'"Rupard’s mother, Shawn McQuaige, told the outlet that neither the prom invitation nor the handbook included a dress code for the event. Indeed, while the 2013-2014 parent and student handbook specifies that students[…]

  • From Policy to Practice: How 8 Companies Are Changing the Game On LGBT Diversity and Inclusion

    From Policy to Practice: How 8 Companies Are Changing the Game On LGBT Diversity and Inclusion Companies have made amazing strides over the past decade to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers are protected from discrimination at work. Over 300 businesses achieved 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign's 2014 Corporate Equality Index, which measures LGBT-inclusive workplace policy, up from just 13 in 2002. But what does that mean for the everyday work environment? Do LGBT employees feel safe to "bring their whole selves to work" because a company has a non-discrimination policy? Policy is a powerful first step, but policy alone doesn't change the culture. According to HRC, up to 53 percent of LGBT professionals are still closeted at work.Eight pioneering companies are working to change that. They've committed to taking action to[…]

I can't believe I'm still talking about this. But I've worn underwear every day of my life and the fact that I'm painted as this exhibitionist is a little annoying," the 43-year-old told Men's Fitness in the magazine's May issue. "It's become a meme, I guess. Being someone who people want to photograph, you have to open yourself up to the positive and negative. It is what it is. If I get mad at it[…]

Franklin Graham, Dr. Russell Moore, Ralph Reed, and Cokie Roberts as guests. The discussion turned to gay marriage, and Graham, son of famous American televangelist Billy Graham, made sure to reiterate his opposition to it, though he said that gays could go to heaven if they repent.Graham said:Maybe gays that are watching want to know, "Can God forgive me? Or can I go to heaven as a gay person?" Absolutely. But the same for any of us. We have to repent of our sins in turn. A person cannot stay in adultery and be accepted by God. You’ll have to[…]

    India’s Supreme Court has agreed to hear pleas against the controversial sodomy law that recently re-criminalized gay sex.In July 2009, the Delhi High Court overturned a colonial-era ban on same-sex intercourse. Four years later, on Dec. 11, 2013, the country's Supreme Court reenacted Section 377 of India's Penal Code, which states, "whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine."An appeal from outraged citizens against the ban was rejected in January, but now they are back for a second attempt to overturn the law.Arvind[…]

Nothing really interesting happens, just the usual fire and brimstone denouncements and lies about "ex-gays." LaBarbera whines that marriage equality is a done deal nationwide, he just hopes that at least one state (Oklahoma, he suggests) defies the courts and refuses to comply with a marriage ruling. For his part, Manning declares that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo "is a homosexual himself."(Tipped by JMG reader John)
