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.
Even if every antigay statewide ballot initiative wins approval on Election Day, argues the country’s leading same-sex marriage activist, the discussion surrounding them will have moved us closer to equality in the long run. After all, we have the truth on our side.
If you ask our columnist, the October 8 gay boycott doesn’t go far enough. It’s time to let antigay states form an imperfect union of the benighted and for every self-respecting gay man and lesbian to leave for more-enlightened homelands.
