Some respect for family and children. From the NYT: After only four hours of deliberation, a federal jury in Burlington, Vt., found an Amish-Mennonite pastor guilty of abetting international parental kidnapping in a widely publicized...Show More Summary

Ryan now refusing to say if he still supports ENDA

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Well that didn't take long. I wrote yesterday that someone should ask Paul Ryan if he still supports ENDA. He voted for ENDA in 2007, right before voting to kill it. I thought that since the gay Republicans keep crowing about Ryan being such a great VP pick, someone ought to ask Ryan if he still supports ENDA. Show More Summary

Jonathan Merritt "deserved to be outed"

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Good piece by Jason Farago in the Guardian about the anti-gay religious right young leader who was recently outed. Faith writer Jonathan Merritt is the Paul Ryan of homophobes – an ambitious, not very bright self-promoter who has cottoned on to the media's desperation for "balance" and has made a handsome career out of it.

Arnold Horshack was gay, and he just died

Huh, never knew he was gay. Always got accused of looking like him when I was a kid.

Ask Ryan if he still supports ENDA gay rights law he voted for in 07

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

I'm getting tired of gay conservatives crowing about how Paul Ryan is more pro-gay than even Mitt Romney (yes, even Mitt Romney, who once bragged about being more pro-gay than Ted Kennedy, but now doesn't support anything pro-gay atShow More Summary

Trans man wins UK Big Brother competition

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

I don't claim to understand how the UK TV show works, but I do know the show is a big deal. This is a big opportunity for trans visibility, which is what trans people need much more of. It is interesting that two of the biggest pro-trans...Show More Summary

Okay it's not quite a gay video - then again, check out the reaction of the guy :)

Anderson Cooper's boyfriend is none of our business

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

It's bad enough that some gay blogs are posting nasty stories about Anderson Cooper's boyfriend (and mind you, we don't even know what the real story is), but now the MSM is getting involved, including the San Jose Mercury News. WhyShow More Summary

How did gay Olympians fare in the medal count?

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Ten out gay Olympians won medals. Ten publicly out gay and lesbian Olympians are taking home medals from these Olympic Games in London, most of them gold. If Team Gay was a country, it would have finished 31st overall with seven medals, tied with Mexico, Ethiopia and Georgia. Show More Summary

Is it right to out an anti-gay evangelical leader who's a closet case?

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Youbetcha. I laud Azariah Southworth (for his name, first of all, and) for even worrying about the outing. It's what separates us from the bad guys, be they Republican or evangelical (or both) - we actually think and worry about ourShow More Summary

The Log Cabin fetish

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Years ago, in her hit "Sweet Dreams," Annie Lennox opened our eyes to the fact that some among us get off by being used and abused. Since then, S&M has gotten more visible, and even events like San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair have...Show More Summary

Gay Republicans endorse Ryan, who supports nothing pro-gay

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Paul Ryan supports nothing pro-gay. He once - once - voted for ENDA, years back, then guess what he did? A few moments later he reversed his vote and helped kill ENDA. Funny the Log Cabin press release doesn't mention that little fact when they tout Ryan's support for ENDA. I'm not asking Gay Republicans to endorse Democrats. Show More Summary

What is Paul Ryan's position on gay rights?

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Absolutely awful. He voted once for ENDA, then turned around and voted against it (likely when the religious right got a hold of him). That's it. Otherwise he's been terrible on everything. Ryan is expected to be Romney's VP choice at...Show More Summary

Gay couples feel pressure to have kids

Ugandan bigots say the darndest things

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

Nice story from PBS on Uganda. Only quibble is PBS referring to Scott Lively, the head of an officially-declared "hate group," and the man who authored Holocaust revisionism claiming that gays were the masterminds behind the Holocaust, as simply an "evangelical pastor." Media shouldn't dumb-down hate. Show More Summary

French Catholic church says gays are pedophiles, tries to veto marriage in France

3 years agoLGBT / Gay : AMERICAblog Gay

The Catholic church. That bastion of pedophilia, and pedophile-enablers - to this day - now claims to be worried about the welfare of children. That's why the Catholic church has yet to fully fess up to its role in enabling the rape of children across the world for decades, if not millennia. Now, the Catholic church is bringing back a move from the king - a figurehead the...
