Moms & Dads… What the Heck are We Doing?!?

Moms & Dads…  What the Heck are We Doing?!?

May 23, 2014

  Well, my heart is broken. Yet another mom has emailed me that their daughter came out to them as gay, and her husband, the girl’s father, kicked her out. Dad said, “I don’t agree with her lifestyle; she will have to leave.” (Bear in mind there was no “acting on this” yet, no “lifestyle” – it was simply the daughter revealing her heart.) Mom...

10 Questions You Should Answer Before Entering into Same-Sex Marriage

Nov 20, 2012

We have turned a corner on the question of same-sex marriage.  This past election day, three more states extended basic civil rights to LGBT Americans, and the trend is not likely to stop.  That is very good news. It is time, therefore, for us to have a serious talk.  Just because we as a community have made strides in regard to marriage, does not mean that you...

Oct 24, 2012

It’s 6:15 AM. Usually I’d be fast asleep by now, but today I’m sitting in front of my computer typing this. Kinda reminds myself of Doogie Howser typing his diary entry at the end of an episode. It was the 90’s and I guess typing your diary entry in a computer was teh coolness. But I’m digressing. Had a horrible case of heartburn, the first in...

Bringing Up Bubber: First There Was Us

Sep 16, 2012

Bringing Up Bubber is a series of articles written by Jill Carroll and Nishta Mehra about their journey in becoming parents. She Said — Jill Inever really wanted to be a mom.  Unlike many other women, I’ve never felt like something was missing in my life—as a person or as a woman—from having no children.  I’ve never experienced anything resembling a...

Late Night Sex Talk

Late Night Sex Talk

Sep 14, 2012

Last night, I was hanging out with my old friend Insomnia, and I gave a shout out to Facebook and found that I was in abundant good company. A friend of mine popped up on my chat and asked me if he could ask a question. This young man is HIV negative but is an HIV scholar who knows his stuff. But like almost all of us, positive and negative, he made a choice...

The DO’s and DON’Ts of Falling for Your Best Friend

The DO’s and DON’Ts of Falling for Your Best Friend

Sep 13, 2012

How one gay man fell for his straight best friend (and lived to tell about it)   If you ever have the chance to fall in love with your best friend, I wouldn’t recommend it. Unlike many movies and television shows – where two friends finally discover they love each other after years of excruciating sexual tension (Pam & Jim, anyone?) – sometimes, you...
