  • Queer New World: Radically Creating And Existing Together

    This is the twenty-fifth and final installment in an ongoing series that explores drag culture and the nightlife scene in Brooklyn, N.Y. Over the past several years, following the large-scale exodus of artists across the East River and into northern Brooklyn, those engaged in drag culture in this outer borough have created a new, queer world entirely their own. Accompanied by a larger movement to understand drag culture outside of the pageant circuit, many individuals engaged in the drag community in this borough approach drag culture through a nontraditional lens of "alternative" drag or performance art, enabled largely by the malleable and queer nature of this part of New York.Over the past six months, HuffPost Gay Voices Associate Editor James[…]

  • How A Gay Ugandan Teen Was Thrown Out Of His Home, Arrested And Tortured

    By Rob Watson | The Next Family A few weeks ago, I told the story of a teen named Corey who was driven from his birth home when his parents found out he was gay, and into the arms of a loving home that rescued him. His unique story was read widely and shared by tens of thousands of people. Sadly, the thing that made Corey’s story unique was not that it happened, but that it happened and he got rescued. Many other teens are expelled from their homes and quickly fall into drug abuse and prostitution.A lucky few of them find help through homeless services and by a growing awareness that they exist and need help. Outside of the[…]

  • LGBT Kids Need to Know They're Not Alone Online

    Like a lot of gay teenagers, I was a drama geek. I grew up in the time when when Rent was everything, but I was an old-school junkie. Give me Ethel Merman over Adele Dazeem any day.One of my favorite old gems from the '60s was a Stephen Sondheim show called Anyone Can Whistle, starring Angela Lansbury. It's a kooky old show about a bunch of misfits fighting to save a bankrupt town. I've always loved stories about unexpected heroes coming together for something bigger than them. One of that show's only hits was a tune covered by everyone from Barbra Streisand to Scott Bakula, called "Everybody Says Don't." To this day it's a favorite song of mine to sing[…]

  • Jesus' Sex Life on the 'Down Low'

    While many biblical scholars have ignored non-canonical texts like the gnostic and apocryphal gospels that suggested that Jesus had a wife, they are no longer ignoring the 2012 discovery of an ancient, faded fragment of papyrus that makes just such a suggestion. According to this month's New York Times article "Papyrus Referring to Jesus' Wife Is More Likely Ancient Than Fake, Scientists Say," the document is known as the "Gospel of Jesus's Wife." However, this discovery disrupts modern Christianity's depiction of Jesus in many ways.The church doesn't want to say that Jesus had a wife, because the fact that he spent all his time evangelizing with 12 male disciples seems to indicate that he wasn't a family man. Also, the[…]

They're Hollywood insiders," said attorney Jeffrey Herman.Herman told host Ricky Camilleri that he and his client have not yet named all parties involved because they need to take "certain procedural steps" before filing additional lawsuits in Hawaii. Herman expects the new names will be made[…]

  • Lawyer: Bryan Singer Not In Hawaii During Sexual Assault Claim

  • The LGB/T Divide From a Cisgender, White Gay Male of Privilege

    Disclaimer: I usually avoid using slurs of any kind, but for the sake of getting this point across, I'm abandoning that for this blog post. Please do not take offense.There's a conversation happening right now that's long overdue. With growing tensions between the LGB and T components of our community, we are doing little to bridge the gap -- quite the opposite in fact. Instead of binding together to respect one another's viewpoints and have a meaningful discussion about language in our culture, we're jumping on the defense every chance we get -- further hurting the historic bond we have. It has to stop.Gay men: Telling trans people to stop being so touchy and sensitive over language is wrong. For[…]

If the Church of England accepted same-gender marriage, "the impact of that on Christians far from here, in South Sudan, Pakistan, Nigeria and other places would be absolutely catastrophic."Bishop Gene Robinson said it well in his column What the Archbishop of Canterbury Should Have Said About Gay Rights:"While the Archbishop is right to point out that LGBT activists in the Church should be aware that their words and actions can cause unintended harm to[…]

  • From Familiar to Foreign: A Gay Christian Goes Back to Church

    The last time I regularly went to church was on Easter several years ago. I was going through a really difficult time, and I was still struggling to accept my sexuality. I wept uncontrollably for most of the service as the pastor spoke about Jesus' love, grace, hope and forgiveness.Easter is the most important time for Christians, a time in which they believe Jesus died on the cross for their sins and was resurrected three days later. At the time I didn't believe I was worth Christ's death and resurrection. I didn't believe I deserved to be there as a gay Christian.I've been deeply hurt by the judgment and anti-gay discourse of Christian communities. I still can't believe what I[…]

    Tyler Oakley Shows Us What Happens When A 24-Year-Old Sees His Own Birth Video When Jackie Oakley decided to bring a video camera into the delivery room for her son's birth, she definitely never imagined that baby would grow up to be a hilarious YouTube star who would share it with the entire Internet. Really she couldn't have. YouTube didn't exist 24 years ago, when Tyler was born. But sure enough, here he is, watching a very informative VHS tape with mom. For propriety, he blacked out any private parts in the video, but didn't hold back in his reactions, which are, in a word, wonderful.
