Transgender LGBT Advocate Allyson Robinson Ordained Baptist Minister - VIDEO

LGBT advocate and army veteran Allyson Robinson became one of the few openly transgender pastors in the U.S. when she was ordained last month at Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., reports Human Rights Campaign (HRC).

6a00d8341c730253ef019103bcd4ff970c-800wiSharon Groves, HRC’s Director of Religion and Faith Program, said:

"We at HRC who have had the privilege of working with her for years are excited to see her gifts put to good use at Calvary Baptist Church.

"Allyson Robinson is a born preacher and pastor who inspires everyone she meets. I have had the privilege of working closely with her and with Calvary Baptist Church, which is leading to new conversations among Baptists and all people of faith. Together they are one powerful combination.  

"As summer comes to an end and families are coming back to church after their summer break, they would do well to check out the prophetic ministry happening at Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C."

Last year, Robinson featured in and acted as a consultant on web-funded series TransMilitary, which focused on the unique struggles of transgender service members on active duty. She was the first transgender leader of a national LGBT rights organization until she was asked last year to resign as executive director of LGBT military group Outserve_SLDN.

Robinson is also founder of boutique consulting firm Warrior Poet Strategies and Vice President at LGBT Tech Partnership.

Bear Alert: Fresno Police Chief Takes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Bear1

Though Fresno's Police Chief Jerry Dyer was originally going to just write a check to support ALS, he instead decided to get in on the ice bucket sensation and donate. And rather than just take the challenge in full uniform (like a certain superhero we know), the chief decided to take it off to feel the full brunt of the challenge.

Same-Sex Ballroom Dancing At The Gay Games: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 11.11.27 AM

This year's Gay Games have made a big impact both in Ohio and nationwide. Here's a glimpse of why the sporting event is so unique, and why it attracts so much buzz.

"Dancesport," or ballroom dancing, is one of the most popular spectator sports at the Games. Perhaps this is because it's difficult to find ballroom dance competitions that include same-sex couples — often, gay couples are banned from mainstream competitions.

Outsports got to see dancesport first hand at the Games, and they got video of two women dancing with "fluidity and beauty."

Check it out for yourself, AFTER THE JUMP...

Emma Jane Gonzalez and Sasha Winters are two fierce ladies, in and out of the kitchen. Their new not-to-be-missed web series, "Eat Our Feelings," is a hilarious and informative hybrid of scripted comedy and Food Network cooking show. A truly unique experience, you'll find yourself salivating and laughing at the same time. 

The co-stars/writers/chefs have released two episodes already (with help from a dedicated crew, including "Whatever this is." and "The Outs" helmer Adam Goldman), and both hit the spot. Episode one finds Sasha and Emma battling with a local Brooklyn vendor to see who can make the most delicious grilled cheese, while episode two focuses on their failed romances and drunken kitchen escapades. 

The show is a hit, but if two episodes don't fill you up, consider donating on the "Eat Our Feelings" Kickstarter page!

Gordon Klingenschmitt Says Rep. Jared Polis Wants To Behead Christians, Nominates Him In Ice Bucket Challenge - VIDEO

Gordon Klingenschmitt

Gordon Klingenschmitt, a Republican nominee for a seat in Colorado’s statehouse, has accused Democrats of lacking a sense of humor after he sent an email which said that Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) will “join ISIS in beheading Christians,” reports The Raw Story.

Klingenschmitt won a primary election in June and hopes to replace Mark Waller (R-Colorado Springs).

In the email, Klingenschmitt wrote:

“The open persecution of Christians is underway. Democrats like Polis want to bankrupt Christians who refuse to worship and endorse his sodomy. Next he’ll join ISIS in beheading Christians, but not just in Syria, right here in America.”

In reply, Mark Ferrandino, Speaker of the Colorado House, condemned Klingenschmitt’s remarks and demanded that Colorado Republicans do the same.

Colorado Republican spokesperson Owen Loftus said that Klingenschmitt’s comments “in no way reflect the views of the party.”

By way of apology, Klingenschmitt has since issued an apology of sorts via YouTube in which he blames Democrats for lacking a sense of humor and misunderstanding his use of hyperbole.

“This weekend I sent out an email alert to my constituents in which I used hyperbole. You know what hyperbole is. It’s a literary device where you exaggerate to make a point. Well, apparently some Democrats do not have a sense of humor and they were offended by some of the things I said using hyperbole this weekend.”

Although Klingenschmitt admitted in the video it was wrong to compare Polis to Islamic State extremists, he continued to claim that the Democrat was “persecuting Christian business owners here in America.”
