Filed by Bil Browning | January 27, 2010 | 8:30 PM | comments

We didn't announce this earlier, but since I'll be watching the State of the Union live on the ole television, I thought I'd put up a liveblog and we could all talk while it's on. Come on in and offer...Read More


Prop 8 trial: Whose side are these witnesses on?

Filed by Alex Blaze | January 27, 2010 | 7:30 PM | comments

I'm struck, as I read about the defense's witnesses and their case (which is supposed to be finished today), by the paucity of facts they're willing to present. I know, I know, there really isn't much truth in the traditional...Read More


The Accidental Vegan

Last week marked the end of the 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program that I started back on New Year's Day. I made some resolutions to not only shed a few extra pounds but to make a concerted effort to eat more...Read More


O just might like the T more...

Filed by Antonia D'orsay | January 27, 2010 | 5:30 PM | comments

Is President Obama more willing to treat trans people better than GLB people? The question is fairly simple and doesn't have much deeper subtextual value, but the things it makes one look at in order to answer it effectively are...Read More


Steve Pougnet for Congress

Filed by Michael Crawford | January 27, 2010 | 3:30 PM | comments

Let's just be honest. One of the best ways we can increase the chances of passing pro-LGBT legislation in Congress is to elect more LGBT people to Congress. Of the 435 members of the House of Representatives only three are...Read More


State of the Union on LGBT Issues

Filed by Michelle Marzullo | January 27, 2010 | 2:30 PM | comments

I am a President Barack Obama fan. I am drawn to his direct, calm leadership style, and quite frankly I think he's as authentic as a president can be. I also do believe that he is doing right by our...Read More

The Tea Party Convention slated to take place next month in Nashville appears to be unraveling. Two major Tea Party supporters, National Precinct Alliance and American Liberty Alliance, have withdrawn their support for the convention. The Tea Party is losing...Read More


What's next, banning the dictionary? Oh, wait...

Filed by Alex Blaze | January 27, 2010 | 12:30 PM | comments

This story proves two things: a) Fundies cannot be parodied because they're most likely already being as ridiculous as you can imagine them being, and b) the Global War on Sex stops at nothing and will attack any institution that...Read More

The annual South By South West conference and festival in Austin, Texas, is one of the most popular festivals in the nation. It combines film, music and the internet into a sort of interactive geek fest, film festival and rock...Read More


Transgender Comics: Trans Girl Diaries

Filed by Austen Crowder | January 27, 2010 | 12:00 PM | comments

I love this comic. I'd like to put more words behind that statement, but that sentence is what it really boils down to. Sure, it's not the most artistically astounding webcomic I've featured on this column, and it's not as...Read More

The State of the Union & DADT: Rhetoric or Real Policy Shift?

Filed by Waymon Hudson | January 27, 2010 | 9:30 AM | comments

It looks like Obama will address the horrendous "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Policy in his State of the Union address tonight. 365gay.com is reporting that the reason Sen. Levin, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, pushed back his scheduled hearing...Read More


No Poker Face

Filed by Alex Blaze | January 27, 2010 | 7:30 AM | comments

The WBC parodies Lady Gaga's "Poker Face." They already ruined "We are the World" for me, but this song isn't much of a loss. Ridiculous. It would be a genius parody of the right, if they weren't 100% serious....Read More
