  • Jamaica's Javed Jaghai Drops Legal Challenge To Anti-Gay Sodomy Law

    KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — A young Jamaican gay rights activist who brought an unprecedented legal challenge to the Caribbean island's anti-sodomy law has withdrawn the claim after growing fearful about violent backlashes, advocacy groups and colleagues said Friday.Last year, Javed Jaghai made headlines after initiating a constitutional court challenge to Jamaica's 1864 law that bans sex between men. He argued that the anti-sodomy law fuels homophobia and violates a charter of human rights adopted in 2011 that guarantees people the right to privacy. But in an affidavit, Jaghai said he has been "threatened enough times to know that I am vulnerable." The 25-year-old man believes his "loved ones are under threat" by intolerant people and the drawn-out court challenge is[…]

  • Abercrombie Blames Historic Primary Loss On Gay Marriage

    HONOLULU (AP) -- Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie said he lost his bid for re-election in a Democratic primary because of his decision to call a special session to legalize gay marriage.Republicans are allowed to vote for Democrats in Hawaii's open primary, and Abercrombie said they chose to vote against him because of his support for gay marriage and because they think his party rival, state Sen. David Ige, is an easier target to beat in the general election."Republicans crossed over en masse to vote in the Democratic primary, and then the religious factor came in," Abercrombie said. "Doctrinally I was outside the circle and paid for it." He argued that voters were urged to choose his opponent by their religious[…]

    Florida: Charlie Crist asks Gov. Rick Scott to drop appeals against same-sex marriage Democratic candidate for governor Charlie Crist wrote an open op-ed letter to GOP Gov. Rick Scott on Friday asking him to drop any appeals to the recent court rulings that found Florida's same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional.Via the Miami Herald:"Dear Governor Scott: Four years ago, a district court of appeals ruled Florida’s ban on gay and lesbian adoption unconstitutional.

    The Advocate sets up the clip below: Previewing the video, host Dr. Drew Pinsky and his panel offered a little context on the situation that ensued before Pierce began filming. The teen's grandparents, father, and stepmother were attempting to stage an "intervention" surrounding his sexual orientation, allegedly trying to send him to a "reparative therapy" program where he could try to "pray away the gay." When Pierce stood firm in his conviction that being gay was not a choice, the situation quickly escalated into violence. Before welcoming Pierce to the show, Pinsky hosted a panel to discuss the video, including a call from a self-proclaimed "ex-gay" man who practices so-called reparative therapy. Pinsky acknowledged that he is concerned by those[…]

  • Five Ways You Can Help Pass GENDA

    Last week, Governor Cuomo wrote a letter to the Pride Agenda asserting his "deep commitment" to transgender protections and calling on New York to extend the Human Rights Law to include gender identity and expression. We've been fighting for the passage of the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act, or GENDA, for 13 years to secure basic civil rights for transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers so that no one is fired from their job or kicked out of their home because of legal and transphobic discrimination.The Governor's bold announcement adds further momentum to our fight for equality. Nearly 80 percent of polled New Yorkers agree that GENDA should become law, and the bill has earned bipartisan support in the New York[…]

But the issue that arrived yesterday stopped me in my tracks. The cover features two handsome, fashionably dressed men smiling at a gleeful toddler learning to walk.Is this what I think it is?I searched the cover copy for an explanation. Are these two occupational therapists, helping a patient? Is this image related to an article about gay parenting? No. It's simply the image that the marketing folks chose to accompany an article entitled "Taking Easy Steps: When it's time for Open Enrollment, you can count on us."I snapped a picture of the magazine cover and[…]

  • MONTANA: Anti-Gays Sue To Overturn Non-Discrimination Ordinance In Bozeman

    Earlier this month the mayor of Billings, Montana cast the deciding vote to reject a proposed LGBT non-discrimination ordinance. Buoyed by that victory, haters are pointing their horns at a similar bill that was passed in Bozeman just a few weeks ago. The complaint filed by attorney Michael San Souci in District Court this week asks the court to declare the ordinance invalid. The plaintiffs — Peter Arnone, Dave Baldwin, Ross Hartman, Dawnette Osen and Sharon Swanson — argue commissioners overstepped their authority in passing the ordinance despite legal opinions advising against it. Both sides say the court’s ruling will have implications for similar laws in Missoula, Helena and Butte. The complaint says state law doesn’t allow local governments to[…]

  • What Children Want To Hear When Their Gay Parent Comes Out Of The Closet

    As millions of LGBT Americans know, coming out of the closet can be complicated. That's especially true when you're an adult with grown children and an established family who may have a hard time with such a radical shift in their parent's identity. So what is the best way for parents to tell their kids about their sexuality? HuffPost Live's Nancy Redd got the answer from Sarai Blincoe, an assistant professor of psychology at Longwood University, who conducted research to find out how college students would most prefer to get that news from a gay or lesbian parent. The ages of the students -- 18 to 21 years old -- is important because of how the parent-child dynamic changes at[…]

  • Porno Pete Is Very Upset There Were No Anti-Gays At Gay Journalism Convention

    Porno Pete Is Very Upset There Were No Anti-Gays At Gay Journalism Convention "Even the NLGJA panel on religion and 'gay rights' was bereft of a traditionalist perspective, while the two openly homosexual speakers—former Episcopal Church bishop V. [Vicky] Gene Robinson and new Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ECLA) Bishop Rev. Doctor Guy Erwin—were heralded in the program as leaders of 'this next wave of the civil rights movement.'Both Revs. Robinson and Erwin compared opposition to homosexuality and Christian businessmen’s principled refusal to participate in 'gay weddings' to racist bigotry. Perhaps it is asking too much of  'mainstream' journalists who consider homosexuality part of their intrinsic identity (“who they are”) to cover LGBT-related issues impartially. Nevertheless, intellectual diversity and ‘opposing’ viewpoint inclusion—the watchwords of this conference and pro-LGBT advocacy in general—were in short[…]
