Who Is The Enemy for LGBT Rights?

It may be the wrong time to tell gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender folks that the hard work isn’t over. They may not be thrilled to hear that if we are to achieve Equality, we all must double down our efforts, and work in more direct ways by getting engaged in the legislative process.

Civil Rights is a Black Issue

Civil Rights is a Black Issue

To try and suggest that racial issues are the basis of Civil Rights, is another attempt by the far right to rewrite (or at least retell) history to suit its own needs.

I’d Rather Kiss Than Fight For Our Rights

I have said a number of times on this blog, that activism for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender rights is changing, but even I never would have guessed that that would mean using a kiss to change the world. A very long kiss, that is. But that is what Matty Daley, 21, and Bobby Canciello, 19, chose to do over the weekend. While the same-sex kiss might have raised some eyebrows, the support the pair received[Read More…]

3 Reasons Gays Don’t Drink Tea

The trendy political story at the moment, at least in the Mainstream Media which is busy chasing sound bites as an attempt to remain relevant, is the rise and presumed success of the Tea Party movement. There has been some chatter out there, in the blogosphere, as to whether or not gays and lesbians ought to get behind the Tea Party movement.

Ready, Set, Pride.

Ready, Set, Pride.

For some it is all celebration. For others, it is a time when they see the worst about the LGBT community, for others it is about visibility, and others it is about activism. and a list of “what Pride means” could be pages and pages long.
