From the same small-minded, ill-informed people who brought you the hashtag #AllLivesMatter, comes a brand new hashtag that is beyond insensitive. Some people are tweeting #HeterosexualPrideDay with real sincerity, while others fire back against this ludicrous concept.

He admitted he didn’t know much about the church, other than their generalized anti-gay, anti-everything stance. As he was idly looking up the church’s location… More »

Every year, I make it a priority to attend NYC’s Pride Parade. Why? Well, because I am a proud ally, and while the gay community always shows up big for the event, sometimes I feel like not enough allies come out to support it. Also, it is, in my humble opinion, the most fun event… More »
In honor of June being Gay Pride Month, we’re celebrating not just our favorite gay and lesbian couples since the dawn of time, but also their love for each other even when homosexuality was deemed worthy of incarceration. In their own ways — some more than others — all of these couples helped propel the gay-rights movement… More »
