DOMA defense was doomed from Day 1 – Hey Boehner, I want my money back!

By: Thursday June 27, 2013 7:56 am

By a vote of 5-4, the Supreme Court declared the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to be unconstitutional. They also dismissed the Prop 8 case, which means gays in California can resume getting married. All in all, an awesome day for the lgbt community  It almost Рbut not quite Рmakes up for the [...]

Hate Group Wants Congress to Investigate the Southern Poverty Law Center

By: Monday June 24, 2013 7:49 am

Last week, I received the following money plea email from the Family Research Council: The secret is out. The Obama administration has joined forces with perhaps the most anti-Christian organization in America today — the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). By making reckless accusations against those who stand for biblical morality, the SPLC has incited [...]

Religious right promises to throw a hissy fit if the Supreme Court rules against DOMA, Prop 8

By: Friday June 21, 2013 7:42 am

Several religious right groups have signed a statement of resistance should the Supreme Court rule in favor of marriage equality. But if you ask me, I have no idea what the hell they are threatening to do: As Christian citizens united together, we will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage [...]

Marco Rubio’s Bigotry is the Worst Kind

By: Tuesday June 18, 2013 7:26 am

  Remember the above sound byte from Florida Senator Marco Rubio from a while back? He was whining about being called “bigoted” because he is allegedly “pro- traditional marriage.” Of course this is how he feels about the ability to fire someone for being gay (hint – he supports it):   Or adding gays to [...]

Tackling racism and lack of diversity in the LGBT community

By: Saturday June 15, 2013 2:48 pm

The lgbt community in general and I myself have had negative things to say about Washington Watch host Roland Martin as it pertains to the us. However this is a time which I am giving him praise for this recent panel discussion in Racism and a Lack of Diversity in the LGBT Community. While Martin [...]

Pat Robertson: Gays Wanting to Force Acceptance for Sexual Activity

By: Wednesday June 12, 2013 7:55 am

Apparently, Pat Robertson felt the need for attention, hence this ignorant comment. Of course Robertson is the same guy who seconded the late Jerry Falwell when he blamed lgbts for 9/11.

Revisiting anti-gay pastor Patrick Wooden and his ‘gay men wear diapers’ claim

By: Tuesday June 11, 2013 8:06 am

Last year, North Carolina was immersed in a ballot initiative over marriage equality. Unfortunately, not only did the lgbt community and our allies lose this fight, but it introduced the world to Patrick Wooden of the Upper Room Church of God in Christ and his beliefs regarding “gay sex.” Wooden claimed that gay men need [...]

Homophobic ‘cluster-yuk’ at HRC headquarters flops miserably

By: Tuesday June 4, 2013 6:16 pm

Earlier today, your friend and mine, the anti-gay Peter LaBarbera held a protest/press conference at the Human Rights Campaign headquarters. LaBarbera was accompanied by such homophobic luminaries as Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel and Linda Harvey of Mission America. This press conference was held as a sad attempt to connect HRC to the IRS [...]

Video spotlights anti-gay images of the past

By: Saturday June 1, 2013 1:34 pm

For those who haven’t seen it, the following video is one I made featuring images from my book, How They See Us. If the images upset you, then good. They are supposed to. They serve as a reminder of how far the lgbt community has come and how far we still need to go:

Southern Poverty Law Center calls out anti-gay parenting study, its author in blistering interview

By: Thursday May 30, 2013 7:55 am

In the newest issue of its Intelligence Report, the Southern Poverty Law Center calls out Mark Regnerus, the author of the controversial and fraudulent study put out last year which claimed that same-sex households are inferior to heterosexual households. To say this piece is brutal would be an understatement. SPLC’s Evelyn Schlatter interviews Darren Sherkat, [...]
