"Why Can't People Just Let Me Be Me?"

Allie is 17 and from Stuttgart, Arkansas. She’s a regular teenager in many ways — worried about what other kids in school think of her and excited about college. But she’s also transgender, and that’s made her life more difficult and challenging than most of us could imagine. “I realized I was meant to be a girl when I was a three years old,” she explains, but had to keep her identity hidden to avoid bullying and abuse. Allie is one of two transgender teens profiled in a new film project called “Friend Film.” The project still needs funding, and if you’re inclined you can support it through Indie-Go-Go. Even if you can’t donate, remember that today is Spirit Day, a day to take a stand against bullying. Check out their website for ways you can help. [Friend Film]

Christian and gay.

Timothy Kurek grew up in a religiously conservative family, and was told that homosexuality was an abominable sin. He regularly counseled friends and families on how to approach homosexuality. “The loving thing to do is to tell my friend who is gay, ‘Hey, listen, you are an abomination and you need to repent to go to heaven.’ I absolutely believed in that lock, stock and barrel,” he said. And then four years ago, a close friend confided that she was a lesbian and that her family had disowned her because of it. Something in him broke.

"Same Love"

I can’t change / even if I wanted to

Such is the chorus for “Same Love,” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, featuring Mary Lambert, a new song released this summer which was released in a short film today. I want to say the rap is pro-gay marriage or even pro-gay rights, but really both the song and the incredibly touching video are really just pro-human decency. Keep reading »

  • A Hong Kong real estate bigwig named Cecil Chao Sze-tsung is offering $65 million to any man who can “seduce” his lesbian daughter, Gigi Chao, and “turn her straight.” I put those words in quotes because they will not actually happen. Because she is a lesbian. Daughter Gigi (right), age 33, recently united in a civl partnership with a woman in France and called her father’s search for a male suitor “very entertaining.” [Instinct Magazine, IB Times]

“I think that gay marriage is going to happen. It must.  We are not actually equal — humanity — if we are not allowed to freely love one another. What the Pope thinks of being gay does not matter to the world. It matters to the people who like the Pope and follow the Pope. It is not a reflection of all religious people.”

– Lady Gaga on a French radio show spit some truth that the Vatican probably found hard to hear. But I like the way Gaga said this: she didn’t say the Pope is wrong, she just said his opinion doesn’t matter to people who don’t follow him. We can fight all we want about who’s right and who’s wrong about the “morality” of homosexuality and gay marriage, but you can’t really argue with the fact that the opinions of other people’s religious leaders don’t matter to most of us. That is precisely why when bigots try to explain to me that their anti-gay beliefs are just religious, I immediately invoke my all-loving, all-accepting deity, the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
