I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¿PRIDE SHOULD MORE THAN A MONTH, RIGHT?

It is only within the last 160 or so years that there has been an organized and sustained political effort to protect the rights of people with same-sex attractions, and those who cross traditional constructions of gender identities and expression.

As we enter the momentous month of June, a time set aside in countries throughout the world to commemorate and celebrate our annual LGBT Pride events, we can take stock and reflect back on our victories great and small as well as the setbacks over the decades within the personal, interpersonal, institutional, social, political, and religious realms.

While I too felt pride for President Obama “coming out” for marriage equality on May 9, 2012 during a televised interview with Robin Roberts, do you think we should celebrate Pride for more than a month?
