  • We Stand in Their Footprints

    Millions of LGBT men and women never got the chance to stand in front of their peers, or their families for that matter, and profess their love publicly…

  • Building Rainbows

    Equal Rights.  Two relatively small words with super powers greater than that of all Superheroes combined.  And two words that every minority someday hopes to have ownership of.  Which if you think about, is absolutely absurd.  After all, we already know we are equal in our hearts but for some strange reason we choose to […]

  • We’ve Only Just Begun

    A few days ago I was at the gym listening to Pandora Radio on my iPhone when BAM! The Carpenters “We’ve Only Just Begun” started to play (unlike most people I tend to like mellow music when I work out.  What can I say, I’m weird that way) and in the middle of my stretching […]

  • With Pride

    Word is that we will have a decision regarding Prop 8 on one of these 3 days – June 13th, June 17th or June 24th.  With that said and regardless of the outcome (I believe victory will be ours), I got to thinking…  And after the searing pain from that had subsided, I was left […]

  • The Changing Tide

    I have been profoundly struck by the rise in hate-motivated assaults directed at the LGBT Community over the past months.  In fact, I was in the middle of a rant filled post about the blind ignorance of some of the people in this world…  You know type.  The ones who are so filled with self-loathing […]

  • Seriously, Dr. Ruth?!

    There are a lot of ignorant people in the world… And because of that one has to choose his or her battles wisely… Today I choose to battle. This week Dr. Ruth made one of the most ignorant statements I’ve heard in some time… And that’s saying something in today’s world. The statement was in […]

  • Ellen Degeneres – Scout’s Honor

    The Boy Scouts have delayed their vote on whether they will allow gay people to join their organization. Ellen discussed it in her monologue.

  • The “L” Word

    No…  Not that one.  I’m talking about “Liberal”.  Why has this word become worse than the worst of four letter words?  And why is anyone in Washington supposed to feel some deep sense of shame if they’re even associated with the “L” word?  Is it because of the disdain in the voice of all those […]

  • Compromise

    This whole “Fiscal Cliff” thing got me thinking (as I’m sure it did most of you).  Actually there was one particular statement I heard today (01/01/2013) that sort of summed up this entire debacle for me.  A pundit who works on ‘The Hill’ said the issue with most Republicans he had spoken with was, and […]

  • A Heavy Heart

    Between the tragedy in Oregon and now the one in Connecticut my heart is literally breaking.  Sometimes, regardless of how much faith I believe I have, life just doesn’t make sense…  Sometimes it is impossible to rationalize an idea that presupposes there is a greater plan…  Sometimes I wonder, “Have we so lost our way […]

  • A Place at the Table

    With last week’s election, we in the LGBTQ Community have been afforded an opportunity like no other in our history.  We have a President who was elected for a second term that believes we and every other minority in this country deserves a place at the table.  I believe this is a defining moment for […]
