    Fresh from her appearance at the uber anti-gay Values Voter Summit, the Oregon baker who famously violated local nondiscrimination laws when she refused service to a lesbian customer writes the following: [Sweet Cakes] Standard pablum of the anti-gay movement. Whatever. But what Melissa doesn't seem to understand is that none of this applies to the situation that landed her in the news and could leave her with a hefty fine. And in fact, her deep analysis of whether or not she "hates" or simply "disagrees" speaks to the problem itself. As a business owner who set up a shop to serve the public,…

    How many times have you admired a cute guy at the bar or club and thought: Hmmm. I wonder if that dude’s a top or a bottom? Determing a man’s preferred position in the bedroom based solely on his physical appearance can be next to impossible. Sometimes the bottomest seeming bottom will surprise you by saying he’s a top. Or a guy you swear is a total top will leave you completely dumbfounded when he admits he loves being penetrated.

    29 Sep 2014 | 3:45 pm
    A survey of 1,052 UK adults has revealed some troubling data from our neighbors across the pond. Most unsavory are the 16 percent who reportedly agreed that gay sex should be made illegal by the government. That’s roughly one in six Brits who would gladly slap a pair of cuffs on you for engaging in some innocent arsing around. And respondents who weren’t against gay sex legally but simply morally clocked in at 20 percent. Of course, in 2008 that number was 24 percent so it looks like things are heading in the right direction on that front. 60 percent of Britons support gay…

    Chris Pratt kicked off Saturday Night Live’s 40th (yes, 40th…) season this weekend, and despite a few nervous hiccups from new cast members, it was a promisingly funny hour of television. This was due in no small part to Chris’ strength as host, so how the gang does with a not-so-comedically-inclined guest star (Justin Bieber was a notoriously terrible host, for instance) remains to be seen. But really, we’re just happy Chris was sport enough to make fun of his recent rise to Hollywood hunk status. Like when he appeared as a scantily clad action figure and played a…

When they’re not comparing themselves to Mel Gibson or saying Christians should be willing to die to stop the gays, the twins are trashing Michael Sam or comparing themselves to Jews living in Nazi Germany. But their latest comments may take the cake as their most disgusting and offensive remarks yet.

    George Osborne, Great Britain’s (still united since late September 2014) most popular monster, is determined to drive the poor into a fine powder. George Osborne took a calculated political gamble on Monday when he spurned the chance to ease austerity and instead announced that a re-elected Tory government would hit 10m households with a two-year freeze on benefits and tax credits. The chancellor’s move, which will cut £3bn a year from the welfare budget, is designed to cement the Conservatives’ reputation as the party willing to take tough long-term economic decisions, even at the…

If there is only one issue that Palestinians agree upon today it is the need for President Mahmoud Abbas to sign the Rome Statute. That would clear the way to file charges in the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Israeli officials for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity. By stalling the process Abbas has committed three cardinal errors. First, he has enabled Israelis to escape punishment; second, he has undermined and squandered the international…

But times have, indeed, changed. And nowadays, Democratic candidates in even purplish red states are going after their GOP rivals for…

Oops, lapsed into an apathy coma again.There are only a handful of actors I can think of that I want to watch less in a serious “prestige” drama than Vince Vaughn. Maybe Rob Schneider?

  • Media: Obama was right about ISIS, but we’re mad at him anyway

    John Aravosis
    29 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    The media is very upset with President Obama today for telling “60 Minutes” something last night that the media admits is in fact true. But, but, but… Obama! You see, when asked about ISIS, the President said that the intelligence community underestimated the threat the terrorist organization posed to Iraq and Syria. In response, not only did Fox News produce one of its usual propaganda pieces translated from the original Republican, but the Daily Beast did one too. The thing is, both Fox and the Daily Beast admit that Obama was right, but then they blast him anyway. First,…
  • Gays are like ISIS beheading America, per religious right confab

    John Aravosis
    29 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    The Family Research Council once again earned its officially-designated status as a “hate group” during last week’s Value Voters Summit in Washington, DC. While the religious right conference is a traditional hate-fest for many of America’s most intolerant religious extremists, this year’s talk by the effete Benham Brothers was out there, even by FRC standards. The Benhams are a religious right duo that recently lost their house-flipping TV show on HGTV, after the network found out just how extreme these boys really are. Now, it’s not like HGTV…
  • Virginia GOP could suppress 2% of the vote this November

    Jon Green
    29 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    This November’s general election will be the first in Virginia conducted under the state’s new voter ID law — one of the strictest in the nation — which requires a photo ID in order to cast a ballot. Drivers licenses are the most common form of accepted ID. On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that nearly 200,000 active registered voters in Virginia don’t have a drivers license. Virginia has 4.8 million active registered voters. Divide 200,000 by 4.8 million and you get just over four percent. On Friday, Virginia state senator Mark Obenshain (R –…
  • I test-drove a $100,000 iPhone (aka Tesla)

    John Aravosis
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    My friend Joel and I went to go test-drive a Tesla electric car yesterday in Washington, DC. And I have to say, it was $92,000 worth of good clean fun. (The car goes for around $60k, but by the time you add-on the extras, the price rises.) The first thing I noticed when getting into the Tesla as a passenger was the handles on the doors. They don’t move. They don’t lift up, they don’t click, they don’t control some metal components inside the door. The handles stay in place, sense your hand, and the door clicks open. The same, somewhat unnerving, but ultimately quite…

    God bless her disastrous little soul. Great piece from Olivia Nuzzi at the Daily Beast: Had John McCain been elected president in 2008, Sarah Palin still may not have ever set foot in the White House…because she wouldn’t have been able to find it. Sarah Palin as a sportscaster in Alaska. The early days.On Friday afternoon, the failed reality-television star and one-time VP nominee materialized in Washington, clad in a leather blazer, to deliver a speech to the crowd at the Values Voter Summit—an annual social-conservative confab held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, a sprawling, gilded maze…

  • Next U.S. Attorney General Could Be a Lesbian Mom — or Father of a Lesbian Daughter

    Dana
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:02 am
    Jenny Durkan, the U.S. attorney for Western Washington, is the first openly LGBT U.S. attorney and also a mom. She’s rumored to be a possible choice for the next U.S. attorney general now that Eric Holder is stepping down — but another likely nominee is the supportive father of a lesbian daughter. Durkan, who announced earlier this month that she is stepping down from her current role, has two children with her partner Dana Garvey. She was a criminal and civil attorney before becoming U.S. attorney. The Seattle Times noted her accomplishments in the latter role in the area of…
  • Why Aren’t More LGBTQ-Inclusive Books for Kids Banned?

    Dana

    This week marks not only the start of fall, but also Banned Books Week, the annual celebration of the freedom to read. LGBTQ-inclusive books for children and young adults are often among those challenged by parents or library patrons — but many have escaped attempts to ban or restrict them. Is this good news or bad? Several LGBT-inclusive books were challenged in the past year, according to the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom: The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky The Popularity Papers, Amy Ignatow The Color Purple, Alice Walker All of the…

  • A Gay-Straight Alliance in Middle School? Yes!

    Dana
    24 Sep 2014 | 5:03 am
    This fall, my son started middle school, that land of greater independence, the beginnings of puberty, and a bigger and not necessarily all LGBT-friendly student population. I was therefore thrilled to see that LGBT legal advocacy group GLAD has launched a new campaign to encourage the creation of more gay-straight alliances (GSAs) in middle schools. GLAD notes that LGBT youth are coming out at younger and younger ages, but that support may not be there for younger students as it is for older ones: LGBT middle school students are significantly more likely than their high school peers…

    I can think of no better way to start today than with this video of U.S. Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco’s new poem, “Until We Could.” It captures the spirit of the fight for marriage equality — but more than that, it captures the spirit of marriage. The poem and video were commissioned by Freedom to Marry to mark the 10th anniversary of the freedom to marry in the U.S. The video, narrated by Robin Wright and Ben Foster, shows a wonderful range of couples of various ages and races, some with kids (or kids on the way), and others without, in times both happy and sad.

That she would somehow escape the inevitable end faced by the rest of us because she was special, because she really got that life is to be led onto the dance floor with wild abandon and taken for a spin. As a child, I wondered secretly if she doubled as Mrs. Claus. The way she cooked and baked for so many of us without complaint. The way her eyes twinkled. The way her hair glinted silky, silvery white by the time I reached middle school. The way she created magic for her grandchildren. The way she was jolly. Grandma Connie was immortal to me. My…

Her canary canvas trench coat has stayed as well, even though the sleeves are too short on my arms. I wore it through college, not finding the thin receipt for cigarettes and gum in the pocket until I wore it out to a bar with friends three months after she gave it to me. I can picture her so clearly pushing the slip, folded, through the opening after writing out her check in the express lane. Her tan leather purse, voided and limp, rested on…

Sure, she didn't mean any harm. She didn't realize she was objectifying me like so many men have done to us both. She didn't intend to sexualize me in the minds of everyone there who overheard. But that's what happened, at first. Then it gets worse.
  • Republican PR Campaign Takes Cue from LGBT Rights

    The Republicans have come out with a new PR campaign, proclaiming "Republicans are people too." In the spirit of coming out, the ad tries to cast conservatives as "everyman." They show racial minorities, working-class people, and women as treasured parts of the GOP - even though most of the groups singled out have minimal affiliation with the conservative political party known for being unfriendly to working people, women, and racial minorities. Republicans may have taken a page from the LGBT community's "We're just like you" PR strategy of the 90s and 2000s, but notice there's one group…

We know it turns communities against law enforcement. But we also know it can be deadly,…
  • As the Supreme Court Meets, Here's a Poem Celebrating Marriage Equality

    John M. Becker
    29 Sep 2014 | 9:30 am
    Today, as we've reported previously here at Bilerico, is the Supreme Court's very first conference of the term, and it's the Court's very first chance to consider hearing one or more marriage equality cases. So today is the day I wanted to share "Until We Could," a touching short poem commissioned by Freedom to Marry and written by the incredibly talented and openly gay poet Richard Blanco (who also wrote the poem that was read at President Obama's 2012 inauguration). The beautiful film adaptation is narrated by actors Robin Wright and Ben Foster and directed by Sundance directors David…
  • Here's How You Can Help Homeless LGBTQ Youth

    Garrard Conley
    29 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    In light of the recent public outpouring of support for Daniel Pierce, a teen violently disowned by his family after a "delayed intervention," now is the perfect time to consider helping out your local LGBTQ homelessness center. As organizations like the Center for American Progress and the Williams Institute have documented, LGBTQs make up roughly 40% of the homeless youth population (in case you missed it, Rolling Stone features an in-depth look at the subject this month). Let's take this opportunity to join Pierce, who says he'll donate a portion of his GoFundMe campaign to the…

    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…

With a full throttled voice and right at home stage presence – Sean makes the live music experience one to write home about. Sean’s newest release, “Clothing Optional Fridays” brings her and lOne gOat back on the road and back to our town on September 26, 2014.

  • Right Here Waiting For Accountability…the Richard Marx Way

    Kage
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    I’ve been making some new mix CDs to play when I’m driving around with dad and came across my Richard Marx albums while browsing through the library. Naturally, I started playing several songs while making my selections and it dawned on me that I really didn’t know what the man was up to these days. There was a faint memory of a story way the heck back from the MTV days about some comment Adam Curry made, then (if I’m remembering this correctly) said he didn’t, then was found out that he did. Whatever the case, that’s what came to mind, so I googled him (Richard Marx). Lo and…

    Things got a bit heavy over the past week and a half. A little dark even. I haven’t had a night of sleep during that time that’s allowed me to wake up the next morning feeling remotely rested. It’s happened before, it’ll pass, and then it’ll happen again. That’s just how things go from time to time. It wasn’t until I was listening to the new Erasure album while taking dad for a drive yesterday that I felt my body unclench. I had no idea just how stressed I was until I suddenly relaxed. It was the weirdest damn feeling. So I thought I’d perhaps focus on a couple of stress…

    A headline caught my attention a couple of weeks ago and like so many others in the GLBT community and even allies of the community, I rolled my eyes and thought “Oh, here we go again.” Another teacher was fired. She’s gay, married to a woman, and now pregnant. The school she was working nine years at is Catholic, and they offered her health insurance through the spring semester if she resigned. However, if she’d accepted their terms, she’d also have to remain silent about the details of the resignation—that bit raised an eyebrow with me right there. There’s been outrage since…

    We’re almost sixty posts in and we’ve really yet to have the voice of youth speak to us. Someone approached me a couple of months ago and I was a bit hesitant because the only way we could see engaging someone younger was to do it interview style. This didn’t appeal to me since it then lacks the spontaneity of someone writing about their own thing. So, what I did instead is give a a huge number of topics and let her run wild with answering everything. If you’ve ever wondered how a 14-year-old member of the LGBT community views things–the world and even just…

    Kage
    18 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    Do you remember the episode of Friends where Ross and Rachael come up with a list of pros and cons about each other? Rachael can’t think of anything bad to say about Ross because, let’s face it, male ego is pretty fragile, but Ross does wind up writing “Just a waitress” in the cons about her. Naturally, Rachael sees it and while it’s played for comic effect, the character is pretty hurt by it. I used to think it was a slight overreaction. Insulting, but an overreaction. I’m not thinking so right now, not after a conversation I had this week. We all say and do things we regret.

    But I'm struck by how much a person's whole identity is linked to or determined by their on-line personae. Then, to have that taken away feels shaming and as if we are being forced again into invisibility. But the way this type of thing makes some feel- is a product of years and years of cultural oppression.
