Oh, hey, it’s Pride.

When they go on about “family values,” it’s clearly only their families they value. That arrogance, self-righteousness, and desire for their opponents to suffer: that’s the least Christ-like attitude of all.

I have never felt so alien in my own country as I did today while covering the restaurant’s supporters. The level of hatred, unfounded fear and misinformed people was astoundingly sad. I can’t even print some of the things people said.

This is beyond great. Sometimes I forget that I’m supposed to be really, really gay.

Barack Obama’s Bullshit Gay Marriage Announcement

On this afternoon’s special broadcast, Jake Tapper echoed that point: “The president said he thought this was a state-by-state issue.”

Well, before Roe v. Wade, abortion was a state-by-state issue, too. So was slavery. There are 44 states in which gay men and women are currently barred from marrying one another. Obama’s position is that, while he would have voted the other way, those 42 states are perfectly within their rights to arbitrarily restrict the access of certain individuals to marriage rights based solely on their sexual orientation.

That is a half-assed, cowardly cop-out.

What If You Had Two Kids That Were Gay?

Gay siblings, Samantha and Guillermo, sit down with their mother and let us in on their honest conversation. The intricacies of a gay family member has an important impact on the whole family; being gay is a family affair. The Moreno family presents a framework that does not hold Latino family culture and queer sexuality mutually exclusive. Challenging yet hopeful, the Moreno family is an example of how an honest conversation changes the family dynamic, for the better.

The video is part of the Brave New Foundation’s Cuéntame campaign,a groundbreaking platform for the Latino community and the public at large which interacts with people through videos on social justice issues, the arts, and culture.

Beautiful marriage equality ad from Australia.

To The Point’s Warren Olney apologizes for segment that used the Penn State sex abuse scandal as an opportunity to discuss the fitness of gay and lesbian foster parents.

“With hundreds and thousands of troubled children in need, we thought it was a good time to point out that gay and lesbian couples are often prohibited from both fostering and adopting, even though they can provide loving homes. we failed to point out explicitly that pedophilia and homosexuality are not connected, and that led some listeners to think we were buying into an infamous falsehood. Over the weekend, we received a lot of critical comments from people that by discussing both topics in one show, we had equated the two. We respect our listeners, and we want to respond. There is no connection between pedophilia and homosexuality, and we never intended to say or imply there is. But our failure to make that crucial distinction explicit was a serious oversight. We regret it, and we apologize.”
