    Actress, comedienne, writer, TV host, Playboy centrefold, and general all around annoying person Jenny McCarthy is sticking her foot in it again.The former View host, best known for dangerous anti-doctor anti-vaccine campaign, and for making Sherri Shepherd look less dim during her one season on The View, is known for over sharing regarding her sex life, but that is not the issue now.The blonde bombshell gave an interview last week where -- likely with the best of intentions -- she came across as at best naive and uninformed.Talking about her guest shot on the sitcom Just Shoot Me as a…

    Hey, it’s fascinating that the Vatican is in any turmoil at all over its position on gays. That’s progress in and of itself. I wrote last week about a new Vatican report, written by cardinals hand-picked by the Pope, which included a section on “welcoming” gays. Well, conservative Catholic leaders were having none of it, and they got the Pope’s men to pull back the welcome-wagon. Okay, maybe just a little. But even that wasn’t enough, as the now-weak-tea language still got voted down. At the same time, news comes that the Pope himself has demoted a…

  • We Are In Kansas City For the World Series, And It’s Pretty Darn Gay

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:54 pm
    Batter up, boys, it’s World Series season here in America, in case you didn’t know. This is the 110th World Series, with the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals fighting for the title. Baseball non-fans may be tempted to throw their casual support behind San Francisco simply because of the city’s reputation as a mecca. How unfortunate, however, it is to so easily turn one’s nose up at the thought of Kansas City. True, not every neighborhood of the city is glamorous. Carol Burnett created her famous “Mama’s Family” sketch when her tour…

    Leeds Crown Court Marcus Nicholson-North insists that he was only trying to help. The 27-year-old man first made contact with the 15-year-old boy via Facebook. The teen, whose name has not been released, said he was confused about his sexual orientation. He thought he might be bisexual, but he wasn’t sure, and he wanted someone to talk to about it, the Huddersfield Daily Examiner reports. At first, Nicholson-North offered the kid some basic advice. Over time, however, the tone of the e-mails became what prosecuting attorney Catherine Silverton called “a tad weird”…

The host of CNN’s AC 361 used all that convenient scientific knowledge that often eludes Robertson and his ilk to again make the world a safe place to enjoy authentic Italian gelato. “Just to be clear, if, like Pat Robertson, you somehow missed all the evidence, all the research, the depth and breadth of all the knowledge garnered about HIV…

  • Gay Evangelical Raises 'Olive Branch' Funding For Anti-Gay Sweet Cakes Bakery

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:08 pm
    You may remember Sweet Cakes Bakery in Oregon, one of the first bakeries to make a stink about making cakes for gay weddings. The anti-gay attitudes of owners Melissa and Aaron Klein resulted in quick condemnation from activists, and the protests and investigations by the state's Bureau of Labor soon caused the bakery to close up shop and move "in-home." A year and a $150,000 fine from the state of Oregon later and the owners of Sweet Cakes are finding an unlikely new supporter in the form of gay evangelical conservative Matt Stolhandske, who wrote a fundraising column in the Washington…

    22 Oct 2014 | 3:48 pm
    Yesterday, noted opponent of gay marriage, Bishop Thomas Joseph Tobin (pictured) has sounded off about the recent Synod that considered gay marriage. Documents from the Synod, in some drafting stages, included highly progressive language (for the church) on gay people — for instance, mentioning the "gifts and qualities" gay people have to offer. In yesterday's post, Tobin submits a bullet list of scattered observations from the Synod — in his words "random thoughts." Tobin says it is an "enormous challenge to maintain pristine doctrine" in response to the "experiential, personal, and…

    Katherine Bradacs, a State Trooper, and Tracy Goodwin, a U.S. Air Force vet, are a lesbian couple attempting to overturn South Carolina’s ban on same sex marriage. On Monday the couple submitted a lawsuit petitioning U.S. Judge Michelle Childs to review the state’s ban in hopes that she would find it to be unconstitutional. Such a decision would force South Carolina to officially recognize same sex marriages, like Bradacs and Goodwin’s, that were performed out of state. “There have been more than 40 federal and state court decisions striking down bans on marriage equality,” their…

  • Vast Majority of Americans Have No Idea How Health Insurance Actually Works

    The American health insurance marketplace is sadly dominated by a bad mix of overconfidence combined with significant ignorance. While a majority of adults under 65 think they understand their policy, only a tiny fraction can even correctly answer a rather basic question about how much a doctor’s visit will cost them. New data from the American Institute for Research found 61 of this group were at least somewhat confident they could choose the best health insurance plan for themselves. Yet when presented with an simplified version of an insurance plan’s cost sharing details only…

    Vietnam’s first bi-themed feature film has opened to packed cinema crowds in Ho Chi Minh city. The film follows relationships between a bisexual man (played by Trung Dung), a gay man (Binh An) and a straight woman (Mai Thu Huyen), making clear the love, commitment and affection they have. Publicity for the film signals bisexual and queer content with two poster designs – the one we show here and another in rainbow flag colours. It does however play into the ‘queer people live tragic lives’ cliche: the bi and gay characters are an older man who has escaped from prison,…

    Every time another one of these deliberately propagandized situations involving a baker or florist or other public accommodation operator who wishes to discriminate against same-sex couples comes into light, people on both sides (but mainly on the anti-gay side) start asking why those couples can't simply move on to the next business. People ask why anyone would want to work with a vendor who doesn't wish to service them. "There are many pro-gay fish in the commercial sea," goes the gist of the thinking. On the surface, I get that. I've been through a wedding myself, and I know that I would…

That’s what the Hitching Post is, and it has never claimed to be anything other than that,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco.

  • John Oliver: Ayn Rand – How Is This Still A Thing?

    John Aravosis
    22 Oct 2014 | 2:39 pm
    Because I’m loathe to pull punches, I’ll admit to liking Atlas Shrugged, and Ayn Rand, in college. Some of her non-Atlas writing, especially about the Soviet Union, was pretty spot on. (I was, and remain, pretty hawkish on all things Soviet, including modern-day reincarnations. I’ve never been a great fan of bullies.) And ironically, as John Oliver points out in the video below, Rand was pro-choice and really didn’t like Reagan. Sadly, a lot of really bad people like Ayn Rand nowadays. Which would make anyone with a soul think twice. John Oliver takes Rand on in his…

    I was in New York City for a few days, and took the bus home last night (only $30, who knew?), and damn if I didn’t see a number of people texting while driving. First there was this woman. We were entering the Lincoln Tunnel to New Jersey, around W. 39th. The woman’s car was actually moving, inching ahead in traffic, while she was texting, hands on the phone, not the wheel, and she kept looking down at the phone while the car was moving. That’s what finally motivated me to snap the photo. Car is moving, and you’re looking down at your phone having a text…
  • Pakistani Christian woman set to die after drinking “Muslim” water

    Jon Green
    21 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    On Thursday, a Pakistani court upheld the death sentence of Aasia Noreen, better known as Asia Bibi, a Christian woman convicted of violating the country’s anti-blasphemy law. Her neighbors had accused her of making derogatory comments about Islam after they objected to drinking from a bucket of water that she (a non-Muslim) had touched. Her case drew headlines in 2011 after two Pakistani politicians who supporter her, and spoke out against the anti-blasphemy law were assassinated. The judge who convicted one of the assassins for murder was also forced to flee the country. More…
  • Wehby, Merkley and a cowardly newspaper in Oregon

    Chris Trejbal
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:17 am
    The Oregonian, Portland’s no-longer-daily newspaper, recently exhibited the sort of editorial cowardice that is symptomatic of an industry in decline. The paper’s editorial board chose not to endorse in Oregon’s U.S. Senate race between Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley and Republican Dr. Monica Wehby. It printed a non-endorsement endorsement. The Oregonian doesn’t like Merkley because he’s a progressive Democrat. It doesn’t like Wehby because … well because she’s just that terrible of a candidate. Watching Wehby’s campaign implode has been fascinating. Just a few months ago,…

    Hey, it’s fascinating that the Vatican is in any turmoil at all over its position on gays. That’s progress in and of itself. I wrote last week about a new Vatican report, written by cardinals hand-picked by the Pope, which included a section on “welcoming” gays. Well, conservative Catholic leaders were having none of it, and they got the Pope’s men to pull back the welcome-wagon. Okay, maybe just a little. But even that wasn’t enough, as the now-weak-tea language still got voted down. At the same time, news comes that the Pope himself has demoted a…

    With same-sex couples tying the knot this week in Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming, it’s time to look at the numbers once again. How many children in these states could be impacted? According to estimates from UCLA’s Williams Institute: Alaska has nearly 1,230 cohabiting same-sex couples raising more than 560 children in their homes. Arizona nearly 16,000 cohabiting same-sex couples raising more than 5,060 children in their homes. Wyoming more than 650 cohabiting same-sex couples raising more than 320 children in their homes.

Not all LGBTQ youth are bullied, of course, and not all victims of bullies are LGBTQ — but anti-LGBTQ harassment is still pervasive, even if things are slowly getting better. GLAAD, which is organizing the event, is urging people to wear or display purple for the day. We’re always purplish around Mombian, but I’ll post this extra purple image to mark the occasion. Can a color — or a single day — alone make a difference? Of course not. And we have to be careful not to…

  • New Android Ad Shows Same-Sex Marriage Proposal

    22 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    Google has a new commercial for their Android phones that includes a same-sex marriage proposal among shots of other happy people doing fun things somehow related to a cell phone. From the ad's description on YouTube: A few years ago, we thought that phones and tablets and watches (and stuff that hasn't even been invented yet) would be way more interesting if everyone was invited to imagine, invent, make, or buy whatever they wanted. So we created Android, and put it out there for everyone. Look what that philosophy has wrought, people. First, they let you pick your type of phone and now you…

    Guest Blogger
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    Editors' Note: Guest blogger Warren J. Blumenfeld is a professor in the College of Education at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Last year, when I was teaching a university queer studies course, I opened a unit on the topic of violence directed against members of our community. As I discussed Brandon Teena, Gwen Araujo, and Matthew Shepard, a number of students stated that while they had heard of Brandon Teena because they saw the film Boys Don't Cry they were not familiar with Gwen Araujo (even though her story was profiled in the film A Girl Like Me), and most surprisingly to me,…

    In case you haven't already noticed from all the posts on this site, October is LGBT History Month -- a time set aside to learn and honor the history and culture of the LGBT community. So many of us think of history as something that's already happened -- years ago, in some other place, to some other people -- and as something that's now found in books, online archives, and the memories of our elders. But while that's certainly true, history is also very much alive, and happening here and now -- and in our lives and families, we're creating it. To honor the personal stories of LGBT people and…

    I can’t remember why I thought I needed some time to myself. It was not that I wanted time without her – that’s different – just time to myself. It would be good to get away – get lost inside my own head for the 6 hours it took to drive from here to there. To decompress. I could contemplate in uninterrupted certainty all the things that randomly crowd my mind – a road trip meditation of sorts. It would be good for me. It would be good for us. About one hour into the drive – past the congestion and construction of the city – I was starting to feel a quiet panic. A twinge of…

Anyway, he made a comment in our last e-mail and told me that he’d been telling them how easy I was to work with to which they expressed surprise. It wasn’t so much directed towards me, but rather at the perception of authors in general.

    The news about so many states allowing gay marriage now—or at least being found unconstitutional to deny it to gay couples—seemed at first like a dream. How many of us (gay, straight, bi, trans) ever thought this would be a reality? The struggle for recognition and equality has been harsh and there’ve been some horrific fatalities along the way. Still, they’ve led to people’s eyes being opened a little at a time and it’s nowhere close to being done yet. Has it been worthwhile? I can’t speak for everyone—some within the GLBT community have made it clear they don’t believe in…

I make an honest effort to minimize this potential problem by knowing who these people are and the likelihood of them actually taking an interest in what I’ve written, which is generally pretty low…low-ish…not 100%, much like a condom.

    It’s fairly easy to tell with these posts if the author is a member of the LGBT community or an ally. Sometimes, though, what they have to say doesn’t have so much to do with where they fall into either distinction as much as it does with the experience(s) they’re telling us about. The question may come up today, however, and rest assured, the author of the piece is bi. I bring it up before you read this so that you won’t be sitting there wondering while you read it. You can instead focus on the story, which is difficult to ignore. Welcome to our sixtieth Face of Gay.

    Sam Wood

    There are many obvious advantages of travelling as a couple: you spend less proportionately on accommodation than if you’re travelling alone, you can share carrying stuff you both use meaning you have less in your backpack each, you can look out for each other’s stuff on travel days and you have someone to talk to on those long bus, plane or train journeys, among others. But there are also some less obvious advantages specific to travelling as a same sex couple. Of course not every single moment of your travels with your partner will be all rainbows and unicorns, but here are some of the…

    Tom Stockwell
    5 Oct 2014 | 11:00 pm
    On the surface, Seoul may not seem to have a whole lot to offer gay travellers. Scratch below the surface, and you’ll find the same. The South Korean capital isn’t a gay destination like, say, Bangkok, or Taipei, or Hong Kong. Gay men don’t flock there for the nightlife, or open attitudes, but rather to absorb the culture, history, and a whole lot of delicious food – Korean BBQ or bibimbap, anyone? But, that’s not to say that Seoul has absolutely nothing to offer gay travellers: you just have to know where to look. So, if you’re a gay traveller heading for Seoul, where should…

    Wow, how times flies! It seemed like just yesterday I was telling you what to wear for the night of sleazy ghosts and sexy goblins last year but here we are again. It’s Halloween! I love to play dress up and explore every aspect of my being when it comes to costumes and gig. When you’re comfortable in your own skin then you should most definitely work, bitch. Sexy costumes for a fabulous gay man to the rescue! And by all means, don’t wait until the last minute. If you’re in Palm Springs, it’s the same weekend as Leather Pride so suit up and get out of the house.

    As the last pieces of pageant gig are put away until next time, I’m able to truly reflect on my recent adventure to compete at E.O.Y. and what it meant to me to be onstage once more.

    A Summer Full Of Peaches

  • Fear of ostracism

    Carley
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:51 am
    In my last post, I suggested that there might be more than one reason that I’ve been reluctant to blog recently. It’s something that’s been bothering me for a while, and more than that, something which has felt like an unbreachable wall between myself and some of the people that I’d normally go to with my concerns. I know that quite often, confronting fear is the only way to combat it’s power, and so I’m nervously tapping these words into a screen. I’ve been putting off blogging about my life … Continue reading →

    Confession: when I received the email reminding me that the A Summer Full Of Peaches domain was due for renewal, I thought about ignoring it. Not actively stating that I didn’t want to blog anymore, but instead just letting it lapse, disappear quietly into the ether. It was more than just a passing thought – particularly now that my job as warden in one of the University halls makes me even more aware of what I’m putting out into the internet. And yet, when it came down to it, I … Continue reading →

    I genuinely do not know where 2014 is going; June is more than half over, and that means we’re already halfway through the year. It also means that it’s now been more than six months since Stacey and I broke up, and I am finding it easier to talk about how my life has changed. My parents split up when I was a teenager, and one of the lessons my mum drilled into me in the following months and years was that I should never feel obliged to stay in … Continue reading →

    Back in 2009-ish, when I was a student at St Andrews, I was elected into a Position of Responsibility – note the capitals! I joined the Societies Committee of the Students’ Association – otherwise known as ‘the union’. The committee had to look after all 140-odd societies affiliated to the Students’ Association – giving out grants and loans, affiliating new societies, making sure everyone was behaving themselves. However, I was also elected onto the SSC – the Student Services Committee – and that’s where I first heard about the plans…

If you haven’t read them, here is what she said when asked if she has always been comfortable talking openly about being gay: “I don’t know that I am now, to be honest with you. The gay thing has always been hard for me. When Heidi and I are out and somebody older asks, ‘Are you sisters?’ I say, ‘We’re friends.’ I guess it comes from thinking that they will be shocked or disturbed. Look, I…

But physical scars aside, my mental ones were much more painful, holding me hostage many years. I was only a few months old when the tossing of the bouncing baby happened, so I have no idea what set my father off that day. What I do know is that I was deathly afraid of angry men for most of my childhood. I had the kind of fear that cripples. When a man would raise his hand or even his voice to my mother or me, I would fall…

    Autumn is a season of togetherness; maybe it’s the chill in the air that reminds us of the impending winter months or a desire to share the yearly harvest with our friends and neighbours. Whatever the reason, we come together in the fall, sharing experiences and enjoying each other’s company.But we also live in a world where we are increasingly apart from each other and where connections are made digitally across great distances. Ironically, the technology that allows us to communicate with each other can also be isolating, and some experiences that were once communal now happen…

    It’s possible Tru Love could have been made had Kate Johnston and Shauna MacDonald never met. But it would have been less of a film — literally. Johnston had already written the first draft when the pair first connected on the patio of a Toronto pub. But at that point, she intended it to be a short. When she offered MacDonald the lead role a few weeks later over coffee, MacDonald immediately agreed, but on one condition: she wanted to turn the film into a feature.Johnston went back to the writing room, this time with MacDonald in tow, and began fleshing out the story.“The…
