If gay people cheer when one of their national organizations is revealed to be powerless, it's clear there's something wrong.
Jan '10   
The end of gay media?

By: Mark Sullivan
It hit me hard when I heard news reports the Washington Blade, along with several other well-respected gay publications, had gone out of business. Their parent company went under, dragging the rest with it.
Dec '09   
Wrong side of history

By: Mark Sullivan
Several years ago, I watched as my mother trundled off to Mass one morning. She had long since stopping asking my father whether he was coming along. Her only comment was that he shouldn't eat "everything in the refrigerator" before she returned.
Nov '09   
New activist generation

By: Mark Sullivan
The National Equality March has now faded into history.
The questions that swirled around beforehand -- Was there enough time to organize such a big event? How would we raise the necessary funds? Could we rally the troops? -- are all irrelevant now. The only question that's left is: what happens now?
Oct '09   
Setting our own agenda

By: Mark Sullivan
Bill Clinton says it's our own fault.
At a meeting of progressive organizations earlier this month, one activist interrupted Clinton's keynote address by shouting, "Mr. President, will you call for a repeal of DOMA and Don't Ask, Don't Tell right now?"
Sep '09   
Battling censorship

Jul '09    Still waiting for change

It's getting harder and harder to tell Barack Obama from Bill Clinton.
Jun '09    Mission accomplished
By: Mark Sullivan
Will the last one out please turn off the lights?

May '09    Is the sky falling?
By: Mark Sullivan

By: Mark Sullivan
    Three times was not the charm for the Bush administration.
Mar '09    What a difference
By: Mark Sullivan

In 1993, it seemed that the US military's ban on gays would soon be overturned. Not long after his inauguration, President Bill Clinton directed the secretary of defense to draft a proposal to end the longstanding policy of discharging any troops found to be gay. He acknowledged that there were 'real, practical problems' in implementing such a policy, but thought he could persuade people that it was the right thing to do.

Feb '09    Freedom from religion
By: Gareth Kirkby
    Demonstrators who took to the streets after the approval of California's Proposition 8 knew their real enemy. The marches on Mormon churches and the anti-religion banners in the crowds make it clear that gays and lesbians understand that the incursion of the church into the realm of the state is holding us back.
Jan '09    A new era dawning
By: Gareth Kirkby
    The United States has just come through the most exciting election since 1960. The right person won for the first time in a decade, and progressive Americans are now hanging on his every public utterance to see whether he'll live up to his hype.

By: French Wall
    Obama's victory has left the Republican coalition shattered, as many socially conservative white folks seem to have, at long last, realized that they've been played by the economic elite.
Nov '08    Giving gay thanks
By: French Wall
    Many husbands can, and do, rudely refer to their wives as "the old ball and chain." What a dreadful metaphor for a relationship!
Oct '08    Victory already?
By: French Wall
    Something's blowing in the wind
Sep '08    Policing the Police
By: French Wall
    What protects citizens from lawless police? The Fourth Amendment.
Aug '08    Equality?
By: French Wall
    Even as a slogan, "marriage equality" carries more than a whiff of oxymoron
Jul '08    Obscene Threat
By: French Wall
    To ban descriptions or images of same-sex couplings is to deny advocates of homosexuality one of the most persuasive tools at changing individual opinion.
Jun '08    Reverend Right on Race
By: French Wall
    As Obama repudiates a black preacher whose truths discomfort white America, McCain trumpets the backing of white preachers who vilify gay Americans of any color
May '08    Boycott Jamaica?
By: French Wall
    Can gay action improve matters for Jamaican queers?
Apr '08    Not Just Condoms Stop HIV
By: French Wall
    Why is such good news not celebrated more?
Mar '08    Broadening Gay Travel
By: French Wall
    Travel has the potential to liberate one from stultifying provincial mindsets, broadening both sexual and political horizons.
Feb '08    A Valentine's Message
By: French Wall
    This Valentine's season, let's commit ourselves to showing the world that love is about something more profound than how or where or with whom we rub our genitals.

By: French Wall
