Is It Time For Black Queer People To Give Up On ‘Coming Out?’

David Johns, the Executive Director of the National Black Justice Coalition, thinks that Black LGBTQIA people should trade “coming out” for “inviting in.” Johns talks about how Black queer people seldom have the option of coming out, or—if we are unable to remain closeted— the consequences can be dire. There is no immediate move to a gayborhood, and there is no escape from discrimination. [ 181 more words ]

Resolving Resolutions

You’ve marked your calendar. You’ve saged your apartment. You’ve even deleted a few numbers. That list of resolutions has been ready and raring to go live. Seems like the perfect recipe to get your head in the game for the New Year, doesn’t it? Wrong. According to Inc., approximately 80% of New Year’s resolutions flop before the middle of February. People are able to keep their eyes on the prize throughout the eternal winter that is January, however, somewhere along the line, they lose resolve. [ 789 more words ]

Civil Rights Icon John Lewis Diagnosed With Cancer

When America thinks of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), we rightfully think of his role in the movement for civil rights for Black Americans. He was brutally beaten and nearly lost his life on Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. He was jailed and endured much for the cause of freedom. However, there was another side to Rep. Lewis’s activism: He was a champion of LGBTQ rights before it was popular. [ 92 more words ]

Why I Hate The Holidays

Holidays have always been a rough time for me for a plethora of reasons, as I am sure it is for a lot of people. The holidays smack you in your face even if you do not celebrate, everywhere you go is a signifier that ‘tis the season.” I never really remember the holidays, but I fondly remember the feelings they illicit when I see folks with their families and the new toys and trinkets they get.

She’s wearing a red jumpsuit. There’s a diamond clasp in the middle and a very low neckline. Her hair is teased for every single inch that it is worth, and she has a bold red lip. Her voice comes out clear as a bell, she is giving pitch, tone, clarity, and drama. On March 31, 1991 Whitney Elizabeth Houston performed at the Naval Air Station in Norfolk Virginia for 3,500 Servicemen and women who had just returned from the Gulf War. [ 822 more words ]

I’m blessed to have a loving family – a husband who’s a true partner-in-crime, an unconditionally supportive mother, welcoming in-laws. But when we gather around the table for Christmas dinner, there will be a glaring absence – my father. I haven’t had a relationship with him for almost four years. Though he was initially receptive to my coming out, my engagement and subsequent marriage proved too much for him to handle. [ 672 more words ]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! For some people. The weather has grown significantly colder. Days get shorter by the, well, day. Winter’s shadow begins to yawn and stretch across the landscape as trees reluctantly shed the last of their leafy currency and head off into a well-deserved slumber (to dream about whatever trees dream about). Your life doesn’t change, though. [ 1,082 more word ]

A Lesson on Parenting from Dwayne Wade

To raise a child in a world that has preconceived notions about the behaviors, thoughts, mannerisms, likes, and life of your child before they take their first breath is something that has always left me in awe. How can we create a space for our children to dispel these assumptions of who they should be and let them self actualize who they are and want to be. [ 113 more words ]

Governmental Erasure

It is always interesting, or in this case a bit cringe worthy, traumatic and deterring to see your identity center staged on the governmental agenda. To see laws repealed and introduced that impact the fabric of your life, as things you took for granted and fought for years ago, be erased and diminished. The current government administration's, ideologies toward the LGBTQ community has not been latent, but overt with attacks and beliefs that perpetuate hostile environments for queer folks, particularly those folks who are also people of color, immigrants and disabled.

I am no longer participating in that wild ass, slave ass, political ass, cheating ass game any longer.” The Grammy's and other “mainstream” award shows create standards of approval embedded in white supremacy.

Chick-Fil-A No Longer Anti Gay?

Apparently queer folks can start eating at Chick- Fil- A, or admitting that they do. Chick-Fil-A has decided to no longer donate funds to anti-lgbt organizations according to CNN. They are taking a stand on their reputation that has a history of not supporting LGBT folks due to their Christian beliefs. There has always been contention between christianity and the LGBT community, which is often used to perpetuate homophobia, and transphobia. [ 82 more words ]

No Consent, No Problem

I’ve sent fantastic naked pictures to women I’ve dated. I have also received some nude gems from women I’ve been intimate with. A part of my sexuality is making it as unbound as the wind. I love women, I love loving women, and I love the way women share their bodies with the women they love. Straight and bisexual women are also on a journey towards sexual liberation however, they must contend with a particularly volatile speed bump on the road to sexual freedom and that is the cis gendered straight man.

"Party-N-Play” by comedian and writer Sampson McCormick (BET, TV One, VICELAND) takes a comedic and interesting perspective on what it means to be a part of the Beyhive. The short film centers the identities of black gay men experiencing their lives. Blue is one of the main characters who is at the crossroad of wanting to live his best life, but also managing the responsibilities of adulthood. [ 479 more words ]

Gen Z might be in the midst of a sex crisis – they aren’t having much of it. Instead, they’re opting for the less fulfilling, and more reputationally risky, act of sexting. And who could blame them?

Ascending Beyond Gender: Trans Day of Remembrance 2019

When Gwendolyn Smith established Transgender Day of Remembrance in 1999 as a memorial to fallen comrade Rita Hester, there was no way that she could have predicted the future of trans & gender non-conforming activism to have blossomed the way that it would have in today’s day and age. Very often, all we can see is the darker side of the conversation that echoes the sad state of a transphobic culture, reinforced by abusive gender politics, disgusting rhetoric from our governmental leaders, and the high mortality rate of black trans womxn due to violent hate crimes (the… [ 973 more words ]
