The Erasure of ‘Gay’ From Black History & the Black Community Must Stop

By: Sunday October 19, 2014 5:53 pm

As a gay African-American, I’ve heard the argument about how “you can’t compare the gay civil rights movement to the African-American civil rights movement” more times than I care to count. The constant so-called moral outrage of some African-American heterosexuals when the topic is mentioned has gotten me to the point where my mind automatically [...]

Anti-gay activists justify HRC’s ‘Export of Hate’ report

By: Tuesday September 30, 2014 10:05 pm

Last week, the Human Rights Campaign published an explosive report, The Export of Hate, which pointed out how various anti-gay figures were peddling lies and propaganda to foreign countries in an attempt to spread anti-gay hate abroad. The Export of Hate called out several religious right leaders, including Peter LaBarbera, Paul Cameron, and Scott Lively: [...]

By: Thursday September 25, 2014 5:37 pm

Wednesday morning, several progressive groups including the NAACP, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and People for the American Way published an open letter in the Washington Post and The Hill calling out the Republican Party for its allegiance to anti-gay groups such as the Family Research Council and for the decision of several Republicans to [...]

HRC’s “Export of Hate” report is stunning, truthful expose of international homophobia

By: Monday September 22, 2014 7:53 am

I have never engaged in the negative banter about the Human Rights Campaign whether it was deserved or not because I’ve always felt such things are self-defeating. But that’s not to say that when the organization creates a direct hit against the religious right, you won’t find me singing from the rooftops and dancing in [...]

Marriage equality opponents won’t get momentum with Louisiana victory

By: Wednesday September 3, 2014 9:12 pm

On Wednesday, a federal judge in Louisiana upheld that state’s anti-marriage equality law, thereby breaking the lgbt community’s streak of successes in the courts when it comes to marriage equality cases after the SCOTUS’s Windor ruling. However, other than having to deal with the gloating and overreaction of anti-gay groups and spokespeople, I don’t necessarily see this [...]

By: Thursday August 7, 2014 6:01 pm

In spite of the Family Research Council being declared an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center due to its long history of attacking the lgbt community via lies, bad science, and unsubstantiated charges, according to Equality Matters, (FRC president) “Tony Perkins has appeared on Megyn Kelly’s shows more than all other Fox [...]

Proposed bill could allow adoption agencies to discriminate against gays while taking taxpayer money

By: Wednesday July 30, 2014 11:31 pm

This newest tripe, I mean action alert by the Family Research Council has gotten me a bit angry. The organization is pushing a bill which could allow adoption agencies and foster care providers to engage in anti-gay discrimination under the guise of religious freedom (see the bill here): In California, Massachusetts, Illinois, and D.C. religious [...]

Don’t fall for Sen. Rubio’s fake cry for ‘tolerance’ in marriage equality debate

By: Wednesday July 23, 2014 6:32 pm

One of the most transparent tactics opponents of marriage equality will attempt is to claim that supporters of marriage equality are intolerant of their opinion. It’s not only a transparent tactic but highly cynical. And apparently it’s the tactic that Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is attempting: While Rubio has consistently held conservative positions on [...]

Anti-gay bigot Matt Barber goes too far, gets put in his place

By: Tuesday July 22, 2014 5:48 pm

No one has ever claimed that the Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber has ever observed simple rules of good taste and decorum in his attacks on lgbt equality. However, it is extremely safe to say that the image below, accompanying his post on The Coming Christian Revolt goes way beyond anything – a rainbow flag superimposed [...]

Booklet on anti-gay propaganda tells story religious right wants you to forget

By: Sunday July 6, 2014 9:51 pm

As the Fourth of July holiday weekend comes to an end, I thought I would talk about something near and dear to my heart. For over a year, I have driven you all crazy and I appreciate your patience and support but now we are almost at the end of one part of a journey. [...]
