They were displayed in Washington, D.C. in March 2013 during the Supreme Court hearings on DOMA / Prop 8.[…]

  • I Guess I Should Stop Letting People Call Me 'Tranny'

    There's a tendency among my friends and others who see me in my element to refer to me as a "tranny," one of the words that have recently been banished from the gay lexicon (the others being "she-male," "he-she," and "ladyboy"). For some background, I don't identify as transgender but as a cisgender gay man. That said, I happen to be most comfortable while sporting a pair of 5-inch heels, makeup, and some sort of gender-neutral outfit. I've often enjoyed my male identity, but from a young age I've reveled in my femininity, quietly enjoying any time I'm referred to as "she," either by accident or on purpose.Personally, I've always regarded being called a "tranny" not as a slur but[…]

  • Prop 8 defense lawyer "evolves" regarding same-sex marriage

    Prop 8 defense lawyer "evolves" regarding same-sex marriage Eventually, when it touches your life, you evolve.Protect Marriage attorney Charles Cooper, who vigorously argued against the overturn of Proposition 8 before the Supreme Court last year, says his opinion on gay marriage is "evolving" now that his own daughter is planning to marry a woman.The revelation is an unexpected footnote in the years-long debate over Proposition 8, the California measure struck down by the Supreme Court last year. It is also offers a glimpse, through the eyes of one family, of the country's rapidly shifting opinions of gay marriage, with most public polls now showing majorities in favour of allowing the unions. Cooper learned that his stepdaughter Ashley was gay as the Proposition 8 case wound its way through[…]

  • Is Online Dating Right For You?

    Is Online Dating Right For You? After reading Alexa Cortese's post "5 Reasons Why I'm So Glad I Tried Online Dating", we couldn't help but respond. Ms. Cortese is spot on -- online dating has exploded in the past few years , and we even encourage our clients to give it a go. Dating isn't easy these days -- everyone's eyes are glued to their smart phones, so there's so much less of "we made eye contact at the grocery store and the rest is history" type stories.

  • Republican pro-marriage equality super PAC raises $2.75 million

    A Republican super PAC aimed at supporting pro-gay marriage GOP candidates raised a strong $2.75 million in the first quarter of 2014.The three-month haul for American Unity PAC is by far the biggest so far for the super PAC, which was around for the 2012 election but had relatively little funding. The committee raised about the same amount in all of 2012 and pulled in just $260,000 in 2013.Gay Republican candidates are running in three of the national party's top-targeted races this year. Should any of them win, they would be the first openly gay Republicans to win election to Congress.(from Washington Post)

  • With Legs Wide Open: One Woman's Romp through Same-Sex Baby Making

    If I am asked to open my legs one more time this week, I think I might just puke. As I make my way to the edge of the bed, appendages stretched widely apart, a probe maneuvers into position and the monitor lights up. Everything is in its place, and just about the right size, which shouldn't really surprise any of us because we've been in this position every 48 hours for the past week. Looks like it's time to make a baby.Bend over, she says. "Well, alright then," I reply.The trigger shot is primed and ready to take aim. Left ovary looks the best at this point, and off we go!

  • Political Pluralism: How Government Can Support Conflicting Religious Beliefs

    When World Vision USA announced three weeks ago that it would begin hiring Christians in same-sex marriages, the conservative reaction was strong and swift. Individual donors jammed the call center's phone lines, and within two days, 10,000 poor children had lost their sponsors. The right-wing Family Research Council blasted the organization's decision, as did evangelist Franklin Graham, Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention and others.Just 48 hours after the announcement, World Vision reversed its decision. Its president, Richard Stearns, acknowledged the uproar the new policy had caused and asked forgiveness for the "mistake." Over the next several days, criticism of World Vision's reversal began sprouting. The online advocacy group Faithful America organized a petition calling for the two Google[…]

  • Andrew Sullivan Rips Jo Becker's Marriage Equality Book; Author Responds

    NEW YORK -- Andrew Sullivan unloaded Wednesday on New York Times investigative journalist Jo Becker and her forthcoming book, Forcing the Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality.Sullivan, a gay journalist who has advocated for same-sex marriage for decades, argued that Becker overplays the accomplishments of a few figures in the marriage equality fight -- namely, Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin, Republican operative Ken Mehlman, and Proposition 8 attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson -- and minimizes or ignores many others, like ACLU lawyer Dan Foley and Freedom to Marry president Evan Wolfson. The result, Sullivan wrote, is a "troubling travesty on gay history."In a lengthy post on his Daily Dish site, Sullivan wrote that Becker's book is "truly[…]

  • Boys in Chairs: Body Image, Boyfriends, Sexuality and Self-Image -- What It's Like to Be Inside Our Intersectionality

My "deliciously dirty thirties" (you're welcome those of you in/or nearing 30) are approaching, and I thought it was time that I tried yet again to connect with someone. Soon enough, this guy and I started talking.We'd planned to meet for coffee over the next few days. Certainly not wedding bells, but a start. I then changed my profile picture to accentuate my chair. (Full disclosure: I didn't necessarily talk about my disability in my new profile. Mostly because it was late when I created it and I just wasn't thinking about it.) Well, the minute the guy found out that I'd be bringing my own chair to coffee, his[…]

  • 'Orphan Black' Review: Clones Return With Lots Of Energy, New Friends And New Enemies

    A year later, I can still pinpoint a slew of my favorite moments from the first season of "Orphan Black." Those moments include, but are not limited to, Helena dancing at Club Neolution; that guy's tail getting chopped off; Felix saying or doing anything (but he was particularly great when hanging out with Alison); Sarah impersonating Alison (and vice versa); Alison glue-gunning Donny; Helena and Sarah having a deeply weird lunch together (Jello!); Alison sniffily cleaning Felix's apartment; and Cosima nerding out about science and falling for that hot French lady. I could go on, but you get the idea. At its best, in its first season, the show perked along on a caffeinated mixture of thriller-ish left turns and[…]

  • Christians Can Have Homosexual Friends, According To Pat Robertson (VIDEO)

    Pat Robertson is no stranger to anti-gay declarations, but that doesn't mean the U.S. televangelist is opposed to Christians having friends who are members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
