Two families missing from a new PFLAG campaign about loving your GLBT relatives are those of “family values” politicians Alan Keyes and Dick Cheney: Keyes has cut off his daughter, Maya, while Cheney supports policies that heap shame on his daughter Mary. So much for right-wing Christian love.
What do the murderers of gay men have in common with the White House? An aggressive strategy to justify their own selfish actions by devaluing the lives of gay men and lesbians. And we have no one but ourselves to blame
The poison that flows from diminishing gay and lesbian lives, as the president did again last week, sickens everyone in our society. It’s contingent upon all of us to join together to free our country from this evil.
As many as a million gay and lesbian veterans depend on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for health care—including many who can’t get HIV/AIDS care anywhere else. It’s reason enough for GLBT activists to keep an eye on the Bush administration’s coming cutbacks
Some media outlets are falsely reporting that GLBT America is backing away from a full call for marriage equality. But from my perspective, the movement is not slowing down. Most of us realized that we cannot allow temporary setbacks, such as the recent election, to dilute or diminish our resolve.
...as Benjamin Franklin once said, or assuredly, we shall all hang separately. Antigay priests and ministers must not be the only religious figures with a say in gay rights: It’s time for pro-gay religious leaders and our secular allies to present a united front.
