When I decided to compile my thoughts in a more organized fashion, my niece said, “Oh, a blog!” So I suppose I now have a “blog.” What I don’t have yet is many followers, so please come back often, share the content, and tell your friends to spread me wide.

Forty-four years nearly to the day after drag queens stood their ground against a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, sparking rioting in New York City and marking the beginning of America’s gay rights movement, our nation’s highest court at last held that a key section of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.Amazingly, since Stonewall, the question of LGBT rights has evolved from whether homosexuals should have any place in our society to whether ga
The mainstream media is barely covering this story, but it is of utmost importance. What began as a quiet protest last week in Taksim Square against the razing of one of the last green parks in Istanbul turned horribly violent as police fired tear gas and aimed water cannons against peaceful protestors.
