“I support you, I just don’t want to hear or see anything about your lifestyle.” It can come in a variety of formats, but the gist is typically the same.... I have begun to see this phrase as more of a cop out than an actual expression of sincere support.

How Do We Build a Bi Community?

TELEVISION: It’s a Queer World After All

For a generation that grew up on Three’s Company, a 1970s-80s ABC network show that played sexual orientation for cheap laughs, television as the most LGBT-friendly entertainment was unthinkable. The nomination of a transgender actress for an Emmy award (Laverne Cox for her outstanding work in Orange Is The New Black) was something few of us imagined we would live to see. Just this year alone, more than a dozen television shows feature LGBT storylines through their main cast or recurring characters. So many shows and so little time is a welcome conundrum keeping our Tivo® boxes and DVRs working overtime. Online debates among a growing fan base often reach the high pitch of religious fervor. So, dear television viewers, we are (finally) here, we are queer, get used to it!

How America learned to love same-sex marriage

Two decades ago barely a quarter of Americans believed members of the LGBT
community should enjoy equal marriage rights; now nearly two-thirds accept
same-sex marriage.

This quantum leap cannot be explained by what sociologists call generational
shift – that is older, conservative folk dying off and younger, more liberal
people taking their places. Something more radical and unforeseen took place
that precipitated a change in opinion that leapt across the generations.

Why does Lady Gaga have to prove her bisexuality?

Why does Lady Gaga have to prove her bisexuality?

“Straight, Gay, or Lying” is dead and buried.

In 2005, the New York Times published an article with a catchy headline that sent waves through the LGBT world. Titled "Straight, Gay, or Lying," the article reported on study by researchers at the University of Chicago that failed to find 50/50 arousal patterns in a specific sample of men. Of course there is no requirement for bisexuals to be attracted to men and women in exactly the same way. Of course showing men pornography and measuring their erections is an imperfect measure of sexuality at best. Of course one sample of men is not representative of all men. Unfortunately, none of those important details, details that the scientists themselves pointed out, spoke loudly enough to drown out the power of that sound bite. Such is the nature communication in our media-saturated world.

U.S. Supreme Court Gives Big Boost to Same-Sex Marriage

by Richard Wolf and Brad Heath, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON D.C.— The Supreme Court delivered a double-barreled boost to the cause of same-sex marriage from Maine to California Wednesday by acting boldly in one case and backing off in another.

Precisely a decade after it struck down all remaining state laws banning sodomy, the court declared a key section of the federal Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional on equal protection grounds. But the justices took no stand on the merits of California's ban on same-sex marriage, leaving a lower court's decision that overturned Proposition 8 as the last word.
