Arizona's "Right to Discriminate" Bill Was Not "Egregiously Misrepresented" By Critics
March 3, 2014
There is only one way to look at the recent attempt by a group of constitutional scholars, some of them eminent, to defend the poor, oh-so-misunderstood piece of anti-gay (and anti-everyone) legislation, SB1062, that recently died on the desk of Arizaon's Republican governor Jan Brewer. more . . . .
Defenseless "Christians" and Their War Against the Gays
March 3, 2014
I've called myself an activist since coming out publicly at the University of Wyoming and joining the queer student group in the mid-nineties, and being a gay activist in a conservative, predominantly rural setting requires a fair amount of patience and tact. more . . . .
Taking Apart the "Religious Liberty" Talking Points Behind the Right to Discriminate Bills
March 1, 2014
Conservatives have been flailing this month to recover control of their "religious liberty" talking points after the country turned on Arizona for its "license to discriminate" bill, leading up to Gov.

I liked her tremendously. We were chatting over gin and tonics, talking about her life, and then suddenly she wrinkled her nose and asked me an unexpected question: "Do you have when a man and a man go together in your home?" more . . . .
Transgender activists: "Time to Step Up for Our Own Advocacy"
February 28, 2014
In the 1950s and 1960s, the United States saw a cultural shift in its approach to civil rights. African-Americans and their allies finally stood together and demanded change.

Some argue that battle is still continuing. more . . . .
