By: Tuesday May 15, 2012 9:05 pm

If a whole bunch of trans people tell you that your words are transphobic, they’re right. My friend Allyson Robinson once said that. One can make similar comments regarding most minority populations: “If a whole bunch of (African-Americans, Women, LGBT-Americans, etc.) tell you that your words are (racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.), they’re right.” Well, a [...]

By: Monday April 23, 2012 11:56 pm

I think I’m in love. Okay, maybe not in love. I was just wonderfully surprised last Saturday night when I attended the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles last Saturday (April 20, 2012) and became acquainted with actress Jamie Clayton.

Say what you will about GLAAD’s Commentator Accountability Project, it’s definitely keeping some members of the religious right up at nights.

The Gay Voices’ Anti-LGBT Epithet Debate: The Platinum Rule Seems To Apply

By: Wednesday March 7, 2012 12:13 pm

I’m one who completely agrees with the premise of GLAAD’s tag line: Words and Images Matter. Currently, GLAAD is combating the anti-LGBT language used by 80′s Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron. Cameron referred to LGBT people as “unnatural,” “detrimental,” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” Cameron is identified as a [...]
