What’s Not Cheating?

I look at tons of articles, videos, Youtube channels to come up with ideas on what to talk about. Sometimes its an exhausting search but every now and then I find something that literally gives me the double take what the actual fuck look. This is one of them. Many of us are familiar with [...]

Home Is Where The Pride Is.

A lot can be said about families. We are born into one that is based on genetics and blood. Born into a family that is supposed to love you unconditionally. However, we know that is not always the truth. As LGBTQ, many of us learn to adopt a family. And this family is then made [...]

Freedom of Speech and Social Media

The last four years has been a roller coaster ride, no one can deny that. Since the 2016 election that brought Trump in as president, we have seen a steady increase in hate crimes. We have watched as hate groups have taken more of a center stage in media reports. We have watch as citizens [...]

Finding My Acceptance

Coming out is a never ending process. Everyday we meet people we may have to come out to. Sometimes that person may be us. We finally realize the path we were on isn't right for us and its time to evolve, we come out as our true selves finally. A year and a half ago, [...]

The New Normal

Corona Virus has definitely made an impact on our lives, more than many of us ever thought would be imaginable. So many of us are convinced that we will one day get back to a pre-corona routine. The sad truth is that the damage of this disease has already been done and we have learned [...]

I have often wondered if that's the only way we should look at job opportunities. Yes, LGBTQ friendly workplaces definitely give an advantage to a queer person but [...]

Today In LGBTQ History

Times are definitely bleak. Corona virus infections are still on the rise, prejudice is at levels that rival that of before the civil rights movements,  unemployment is rising to record heights, and most of us are still stuck at home. There doesn't seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Today I [...]

LGBTQ Rights And The Future

June 15th was a pretty monumental day for LGBTQ rights. The Supreme Court added to the Act of 1964 by granting federal protections to LGBTQ employees from being fired from their workplace, nationwide, based on the sexual orientation or gender identity. There is no way of denying that this isn’t a pretty significant ruling in [...]
