LGBTQ Health Disparities

No LGBTQ person should have to fear being denied access to needed healthcare because of who they are. Just as it is important that we have access to see our spouses in the hospital.

LGBTQ Pride On Lockdown

Earlier this week, I talked about Pride and it being canceled this year due to Coronavirus. Yes, it does suck but pride is inside of us and can be shown in how we carry ourselves. What is harder to replace is missing the ability to meet new people, reconnect with old friends, and share in the [...]

Dirty Little Secret

  https://youtu.be/qzfo4txaQJA There are few topics that can create such a polarizing display of emotions as politics and religion. However, there is one more topic as equally as polarizing but rarely gets the kind of public attention that it needs, SEX!
