The Religious Right’s campaign to strip all citizens of religious freedom

Monday, June 2, 2014
Alex Brandon, AP
Turn on any cable news show and you'll hear conservatives, particularly the Religious Right, giving long tirades about religious freedom and how the Left is seeking to strip it away from good God-fearing Americans.

Dr. Robi Ludwig: Why the words you spoke are dangerous, and the one you forgot to say

Saturday, May 31, 2014
Dr. Robi Ludwig
One of the strangest cornerstones of life in new millennium media is not the question on whether someone will blame a current tragedy on the LGBT community, it is how quickly they will run to do it. From 9/11, to earthquakes, to floods and British rain, it is LGBT [...]

Every year that I have lived and worked in this city I have always gone to Arlington National Cemetery to observe the Memorial Day ceremonies. Afterwards, I wander down through the grounds, just to watch, maybe to listen, but mostly to contemplate on the sacrifices made by those brave souls [...]

Dear Opponents of Equality: You can feel it approaching, can’t you? Victory for those of us who seek equality under the law is looming on the horizon. Our shared concepts of marriage, love, sexuality and family are changing. We get that you might be worried or afraid. Change is [...]

An open letter to the Mother’s Day slushie victim: Bullies with an agenda are still bullies

Thursday, May 15, 2014
Anti-gay protester and "slushie" victim Christine Weick
Thanks to the television show “Glee,” the slushie has been elevated from an overly sugary refreshment to an act of public humiliation. Not since a cream pie hit the face of Anita Bryant, has a caloric treat wielded such stature. Previously, the slushie had been confined to fictional encounters. It [...]

I just can’t vote for a gay Republican…

Sunday, May 11, 2014
Carl DeMaio
Carl DeMaio is running for the U.S. House of Representatives. He’s a fiscal conservative Republican, and that is why he won’t have the vote of this liberal Democratic lesbian. And I don’t like the fact that he won’t really talk about LGBTQ issues – saying instead that the fiscal [...]

Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Darrell Trigg
If you haven’t heard of Darrell Trigg or his intentions, don’t feel bad. In terms of his real objective and vision, he is not actually running for President. He really wants to be our King. The monarchs of old saw their leadership ordained by God, their authority blessed and their [...]

Jo Becker
For all the consternation the book "Forcing the Spring" has caused, Jo Becker’s trespass in portraying American Foundation for Equal Rights founder Chad Griffin as the Rosa Parks in the fight for marriage equality is not much worse than all the many times newspapers, magazines, and even knowledgeable people in [...]

An unthinkable tragedy

Saturday, April 26, 2014
Gabriel
Gabriel did not die because his moms were lesbian. His death was not the byproduct of homophobia. His fate was not because of a violation of any legal custody issues. His story is bigger than any of that. His story is about love, sacrifice and the true meaning of being [...]

Living single in the age of marriage equality

Sunday, April 20, 2014
DreamWorks Pictures
What good is being gay when you have no one to love? What good is same-sex marriage when you’re single? During the periods when I was single, I watched a lot of films, at home, alone. The selection process had to be very cautious. Romance was out. Drama too, as [...]
