Wednesday, February 12, 2014
Lawrence King, murdered Feb 12, 2008.

Wednesday, February 5, 2014
Mark Regnerus
For the anti-gay movement, call it the gift that keeps on giving. The thoroughly discredited study by University of Texas sociology professor Mark Regnerus that was released July 2012 has turned up yet again, this time in the initial brief filed on behalf of the state of Utah in its [...]

You have been deservedly under fire for your sponsorship of the Sochi Olympics. Now you have shown great courage in the United States on behalf of diversity. There are those who are cynical that you may be playing both sides and looking for the maximum in financial gain. [...]

If equality for same-sex couples harms your straight marriage, it’s your own fault

Monday, January 27, 2014
broken-marriage
For years, in thousands of same-sex marriage debates which I have participated, those opposing marriage equality have claimed that if it was made legal, harm would be done to opposite sex marriages. There was nothing about their argument that seemed the least bit logical, so I fought back vehemently with [...]

In this year’s State of the Union Address to Congress, President Obama is expected to acknowledge and focus on the inequality that is seemingly growing once again in the United States. As the President has been thinking about inequality among the 300 million people who live in the U.S., I [...]

Nigeria’s anti-gay law fanning violence, ‘mob justice’ against LGBT people

Sunday, January 26, 2014
anti-gay
I woke up at 5:00 am this morning unable to sleep and worrying over my fellow LGBT Nigerians. The violence in the wake of the passing of my country’s anti-gay law keeps me awake and I find myself constantly preoccupied with the security of my friends and countrymen. The violence [...]

Thursday, January 23, 2014
Sally Kern
The Bible says it. I believe it. That settles it. While that reads like a tired bumper sticker, there are still lawmakers in the United States who use this as the very foundation of their government “service.” One such lawmaker is Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern. Even people who may [...]

messy-baby
Trestin Meacham is not a special individual. For the people who share his mindset, he is actually quite typical. He finds a singular way of expressing himself, and for that, he gets notoriety. Because he typifies some of those holding key points of anti-gay frustration, he remains a [...]
