A Gay Man Sees Equus at Pittsburgh Public Theater

A Gay Man Sees Equus at Pittsburgh Public Theater

The other night, my husband and I had the opportunity to see Equus at Pittsburgh Public Theater.  Equus has won an enormous number of awards, but I actually knew almost nothing about it, except it involved a horse and some nudity.

Pittsburgh Pride: The Resistance Is Progressive

Pittsburgh Pride: The Resistance Is Progressive

We (queer activists) aren’t acting for the whole of the queer community or marginalized communities if we are calling for gay rights at the expense of clean drinking water, unpolluted land, and the constant feeding of high profits to the companies that cause environmental damage.

Diversity, Inclusion, and the Progressive Movement

Diversity, Inclusion, and the Progressive Movement

When we stop acting out of the false idea that our perspectives are broad enough to apply to everyone, and start seeking out the power of operating as a diverse and inclusive group, we will begin to make greater strides ahead as progressives.

A Gay Man Sees “Twelfth Night”

A Gay Man Sees “Twelfth Night”

Of all the stories of love and attraction within the play, the love Antonio has for Sebastian is the only one not ridiculed or made out to be folly.

Trump and Marriage Equality

There is a lot of chatter on Social Media about Trump ending marriage equality.

Understanding the 2016 Election Results (part 1)

In some real ways, this feels like deja vu to me as a blogger.  Thomascwaters.com began in ernest, in the aftermath of the 2008 election, where Obama won and Prop 8 passed. I had no idea what to do with the emotions I was feeling and the ideas flooding my brain, so I decided to pour it out into blog posts. And here I am following another major election in the same boat– overflowing with[Read More…]
