Moral issues, such as abortion and euthanasia, aren’t as cut and dry as some would have us believe. Are mothers who are unfit or choose to otherwise terminate a pregnancy morally bankrupt? I don’t think so. Persons…See More

FEATURE: WNBA players Brittney Griner & Glory Johnson are engaged!

Congrats are in order for WNBA players Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson, who announced that they are engaged! In times where same-sex marriage is still illegal in many states, this can be viewed as powerful thing to do for two well-known athletes like them. The Los Angeles Times reports: "WNBA standouts Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson have announced they…See More

FEATURE: Uganda's first gay parade since overturning of the country's Anti Homosexuality Act

In a country where men and women are rampantly named and shamed for same sex orientation, where they face frequent harassment and threats of violence, it comes as a pleasant surprise to see the images that have recently surfaced of Ugandan lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people publicly dancing and laughing on the shores of Lake Victoria - close to the country’s Presidential palace - in what is the country’s first gay parade since the overturning of Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act…See More

It was after that conversation that I assumed that for my safety I would have to appease the egos of men as I…
