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 [...]

LGBTQ Equality In The Workplace

I see in forums that I belong to, where community members are asking if anyone knows of companies that are LGBTQ friendly and if they are hiring. 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 [...]

How we decide to vote, as a people can vastly change how next four years. For the LGBTQ community, much of the stage for how [...]
