Garth Greenwell reviews Jonathan Kemp's "London Triptych" which is all about transactional gay sex in London. Also, rapper Macklemore is the latest celebrity to lend his voice to a campaign that is demanding a bigger separation between Church and State



ExxonMobil has horribly discriminatory practices when it comes to hiring (or not hiring) LGBT employees and it seems they are about to get their comeuppance. Check out the group of mouth-breathers that spouted their hate in front of the HRC headquarters yesterday

First Lady Michelle Obama was speaking at a fundraiser in Washington State last night and went head to head with some pretty persistent heckling over her husband's lack of protection for LGBT workers. A new survey shows which countries are the most and least accepting of gays and a new film documents the struggle of gay activists in Uganda
