LGBTQ African Americans have always been here.

Philadelphia has long had ties to LGBTQ culture, from Independence Hall (the site of the country’s earliest recurring gay rights demonstrations) and ‘The Gayborhood’, to the William May and Mazzoni Centers. Those deep connections continue to the present day at Philadelphia Family Pride.

In honor of Black History Month we feature Tariem Burroughs, a member of PFP since 2017; he currently serves as their Board Chair. “To me, being a board member means that I am loved. That my family is loved and understood and that we need each other; we need a strong community so that not only our children, but we, as parents, can thrive.”

Amazon, Nike, American Airlines and dozens of other companies have taken a stand for LGBTQ rights in Tennessee.

They are among the nearly 150 companies that signed a letter opposing Tennessee's anti-LGBTQ laws.

The collective, known as the Tennessee Businesses Against Discrimination, specifically calls out HB 836, a law that allows foster care and other child welfare organizations to refuse to place children into foster care or adoptive families that might violate their "religious or moral convictions."

Virginia Passes Historic LGBTQ Protections

It took more than two decades to get here, but Virginia has finally passed sweeping LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections.

The Virginia Values Act—which extends nondiscrimination protections on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation—sailed through both the Virginia House and Senate Thursday in back-to-back votes. Its passage into law is nearly assured, as Gov. Ralph Northam has committed to signing the act into law.

In honor of Black History Month we feature Nyesha and Samantha Davis-Williams of New York who decided when they became first time parents, they’d also be first time authors of a children’s book. The couple’s first book, a semi-autobiographical children’s tome entitled Umi & Uma: The Story of Two Mommies and a Baby, was published last year.

One may wonder why the new parents and authors chose to highlight their doula in their new children’s book.

“When we speak of a doula, most assume she plays the same role as the midwife, or some don’t know what her role is at all,” Nyesha said. “When sharing with our friends and family [that] we had a doula, we would get the most perplexed looks ever.”

“As we had to explain what a doula was, we decided to educate our readers on her role,” Samantha continued. “We decided it was a great opportunity to highlight her within a children’s book.” Read more in the article New York Authors Seek To “Redefine America’s New Standard Family” With New Children’s Book by Michael P Coleman in the January-February issue of Gay Parent Magazine.

It’s No Exaggeration: Sweeping South Dakota Bill Aims to Eliminate LGBTQ Rights

South Dakota Bill Aims to Eliminate LGBTQ Rights! However bad you think it is, it’s so much worse. Whatever LGBTQ rights you think they might be trying to eliminate, you’re probably right.

The bill covers nearly every aspect of LGBTQ life, from the obvious — marriage equality and protection from discrimination — to the surprisingly specific: The law addresses schools and libraries hosting Drag Queen Story Hour events. It even contains a rather nebulous catch-all clause that says the state may not approve policies that “condone or affirm” LGBTQ communities.

Read what they're proposing!

This bill is just plain cruel.

Robin Hopkins and Jamie Kelton are the moms behind the informative and entertaining podcast, If These Ovaries Could Talk. The show is two lesbians chatting about making babies and non-traditional families.

Season two found Jaimie and Robin talking to such people as: a single mom that wanted to make a baby, two moms that take in seven foster kids in one year (one with childhood cancer), and parents who support their seven-year-old son’s wishes to wear dresses. They cover topics such as religion and the LGBTQ community, interview comedian Julia Scotti from America’s Got Talent, and speak with Staceyann Chin a poet, LGBTQ activist and performance artist. Robin and Jaimie touch on some hard topics, and some of the episodes will make the listener cry. However, they manage to talk about all of this with a sense of charm, empathy, and lightheartedness that is honest and true.

Judge Sides with Same-Sex Partners Denied Equal Access to Social Security Survivor’s Benefits

A federal judge just recommended striking down the Social Security Administration's denial of survivor's benefits to same-sex partners who were barred from marrying prior to marriage equality!

This is long overdue for surviving partners who are already in mourning.

The same-sex partners were barred from marrying due to discriminatory state marriage bans.
