RoadUniversity of Alaska Fairbanks hosting "ex-gay" evangelist Ernie Delgado: "His visit is being promoted by Campus Bible Ministries as an example of someone who escaped a gay lifestyle, and how others can do the same. Some students and faculty are offended by the visit. A few students silently protested outside 1 of this week's lectures."

Could you please stop saying that the state strategy is a failed strategy? Instead, could you acknowledge that we have achieved key victories for equality in the states?

  1. "Mary Travers of Peter, Paul, and Mary dies at 72."

    I thought she died 20 years ago choking on a ham sandwich.

  2. the vile nature of crispy and his attempts of humor never fail to disgust me --- there enjoy the reaction

    ss for the hate speech - it is best that we just retort that the truth is that Straight Supremist just like White Supremist are just as immoral as pedophiles, drug dealers, and pimps who plague our communities.

    if they are not allowed to share their hate - we will not know who are enemies are --- and each and everyone of us will be hated to the day we die --- get used to it and carry on

  3. It that Kellan or Taylor at the gym? He more resembles Taylor Lautner to me (the face, and the darkness of the skin, but that could just be the tint of the window or something).

  4. I actually thought that Kellan Lutz looked more like Matt Damon (whose story subsequently followed, playing the trick on my mind) than Taylor Lautner. I was like...Dang! Go Matt! lol

  5. I hate living in Calgary. :(
    Im the least surprised to hear that bigotry is tolerated as "free speech" here.

    My few gay friends and I agree that being gay in Calgary feels like suffocating.

  7. Is it me or is Pete Wentz a little less annoying in that mask?

  8. I'd like to know in what way Clear Channel benefits the GLBT community in Los Angeles? Clear Channel and the family that owns the majority of stock in the company was a major supporter of George W. Bush. Yes, yes...I know...they give money to Frameline and apparently to Outfest. But I'd say the support for Bush alone pretty much erases any other 'support' they may have given. But maybe I'm wrong. I'd love it if someone could prove that I am indeed mistaken on this issue.

  9. Yes, Crispy, we can see she got pretty chubby in her later years.///But seriously, I was sorry to hear about Mary Travers. Her voice was so perfect for those types of songs. Seemed like a really nice person too.

  10. Toni Broaddus, you're an asshole and Cleve Jones is right! Tell me, dear Toni, of the great ELECTORAL victories you've achieved for LGBT rights? It's all been through the courts, which feeds the right-wing's propaganda about "activist judges" and are fragile victories subject to the ire and anger of aroused rightists who can get out the vote and make their case against us better than we can makes our case FOR us. Toni dear, get me some electoral victories, some rescinding of state constitutional amendments banning marriage equality, or state-wide amendments for civil equality for the LGBT community. Otherwise, Toni dear, get down from your fund-raising, celebrity-infused, head-up-your-ass ivory tower and get a taste of real life and the real problems that LGBT people face every day. We're not ALL college grads or pulling six-figures or going to all the circuit parties. Some of us have HARD live which are made all that much more difficult because we don't have civil equality. Again, Toni Broaddus, you are an asshole. STFU!
