RoadSurprise! GOP has nothing on the Fiscal Cliff: "The reality should be seeping in to viewers of the Sunday shows that the Republicans don’t have a game plan. They don’t have a single, specific proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff. And even if they had one, they don’t have a roadmap to get there."

RoadTrans Latinas find a refuge in Queens: "Since 2008, a growing number of transgender Latinas have gathered in Queens every Friday night, discussing challenges unfamiliar to many New Yorkers: Where do I buy female hormones without a prescription? How do I avoid the police when reporting a drug overdose? Who can help me find a lawyer familiar with asylum petitions? Conducted in Spanish, the sessions are aimed at those who have emigrated, most illegally, from Latin American countries where violence toward gay and transgender people is common."

It’s the internet reactionary version of “I’m not racist, but..,” because nothing Gunn has in the article comes off as anything more than mild joking and inoffensive plays on sexuality."

The state didn’t collapse into chaos or the Pacific Ocean. Life went on. Now, 15 years after they met at the Pentagon, Roberts and Oliver have adopted five children and might add a sixth — a baby — to the mix even as Roberts is preparing to be sworn into office in January."

  1. Andy, the Star Trek Into Darkness poster depicts the film's villain, Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch, and not Chris Pine. Just FYI.

  2. After the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, Vice President Biden is probably the most colorful politician out there.

  3. Can we all agree to boycott Ricky Martin and stop giving him free publicity ?

    He is a moron. He supported George W Bush and even performed at his inauguration. Ricky was happy to sell us out when he was making millions but now his career is over he comes out as gay and wants the gays to keep making him rich.

    He is not a friend of our community. Self asborbed idiots like Ricky Martin have damaged us and held back our human rights for 10 more years.

    No more Ricky Martin please !

  5. Playing devil's advocate here, but are we not allowed to have levels in our journey of self-awareness? Once we take that first tentative step out of the closet, are we automatically enrolled to be a flag-waving, parade-marching member of gay society?

    Ricky Martin has been in the public eye far, FAR longer than you or I, and surely your coming out process wasn't accomplished under such scrutiny or criticism as his. He's with us now, and that's one more celebrity we had ten years ago. Give the guy a break. Placing the success of the gay rights movement on one person's shoulders (however famous) is giving that person far too much credit.

  6. "Where have you seen an ahi tuna burger at a sports bar before?..."

    Umm, yesterday at the sports bar right down the street from me. They have great food (including a perfectly seared ahi burger) and it doesn't cater to any particular crowd other than sports fans.

  7. The American anti-gay Christians are in Spain making trouble for gay marriage, another reason for the world to hate America, they are always screwing something up, why can't the priest just go back to raping children and the Pope hide them around the world?

  8. Given that the Supremem Court of Spain just reaffirmed mariage equality WTF are American anti-gay Christians doing in Spain? I just don't understand Sisyphean efforts.

  9. Joe Biden at Costco shows clearly the difference between being a Democrat and a Republican.

    Democrats enjoy life however, whenever, with whomever over whatever.

    Republicans are simply joyless, miserable, priggish, embittered, petty, elitist snobs.
