The suit in Manhattan Federal Court says Liebman gossiped about how Riggs had 'ballooned up' since starting with the company.

Riggs, an administrative manager, said he was fired in October 2008, less than a month after he complained about the discrimination."

    There is nothing more tragically ludicrous than an organization purporting to promote dignity and security for LGBT persons that uses the word “queer” in its name. Such clueless organizations perpetuate the stigmatization of LGBT identity that endangers our lives and livelihoods.

    The gay soccer player’s blog turns out to be a fake. It is written by a 48 year old Japanese woman. She ‘comes out’ in today’s column titled “I’ve been lying to you.”

    YAY for Ang Ladlad. Now it’s time to expose the rampant, ubiquitous and flagrant sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests in the Philippines.

    Has that great friend of the gays, Madonna, made any statement at all about the ongoing trial in Malawi of the two gay men????!!??!?!?!?!

    Her silence makes me feel nothing but contempt.

    I guess crack isn’t wack enough for Miss Whitney, still.

    As a recovering addict of some years, I have highly mixed feeling about the news that Miss Whitney may have relapsed.

    I get the feeling GLAAD is making too much of Super Exclusivo using the term “pato” in covering Ricky Martin. I used to date this Puerto Rican guy who loved La Comay. She is supposed to be offensive, the idea being that you’re laughing at her as much as with her. GLAAD is prone to not seeing context.
