Today In WTF: Pastor Uses Horse Therapy To “Cure” Gayness

In my opinion, all  gay conversion therapy is absolutely ridiculous and deeply ignorant and as an ally, I find it offensive. Also, it’s been deemed “dangerous and abusive”  by the World Health Organization and the state of California has banned its use on minors. But, yet, it continues to happen. Horse therapy may be the… More »

Mommie Dearest: A Tale Of Two Gay Penguins

One of the more challenging aspects to being a parent is keeping a handle on all the various things to which your child is exposed.

Ricki Lake Tackles An Openly Gay Man Married To A Woman

Everything I loved about Ricki Lake in the ’80s and ’90s is still present and accounted for in the updated version of her talk show.

The Soapbox: Butt Chugging Is Stupid, But It Doesn’t Make You Gay

Last week, we told about about that alleged near-death-by-butt-chugging incident of a Pi Kappa Alpha brother at the University of Tennessee. Yesterday, Alexander P. Buttchugger, I mean Broughton, came forward to deny all charges that he took Franzia (or anything) up his ass and that the details of his story were fabricated. In a press… More »

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… More »

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.

Lady Gaga: The Pope’s View On Homosexuality “Does Not Matter To The World”

“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… More »


Girl Talk: Why I’m An Out And Proud Bisexual

Let me tell you a story about “bi invisibility.” A few years ago, at my first full-time job – which, I should clarify, was at an LGBT nonprofit organization – I was chatting with a gay male co-worker about a conversation he had with an acquaintance of ours. Apparently I had come up in their… More »


The Soapbox: On Rupert Everett & Having Gay Parents

The actor Rupert Everett, who is gay, believes children should have a “mother and a father.”

Ezra Miller: “I’m Open To Love Wherever It Can Be Found”

“The way I would choose to identify myself wouldn’t be gay. I’ve been attracted mostly to ‘shes’ but I’ve been with many people and I’m open to love wherever it can be found.

Bigotry Against Gays Is “Sick,” Says Zachary Quinto

“One of the defining conversations that I had with myself was that absolutely no good can come from me staying quiet about [my sexuality].  Literally, no good can come from it.

Gay Marriage Scaremongering Is The Most Hilarious Campaign Ad Of The 2012 Election

I thought the very intense lady who claims she “survived” an abortion, despite the fact that logic makes no sense, was the most guffaw-inducing campaign ad of the 2012 election. Wrong!
