Her death has hit me hard and the sadness won’t seem to go away. Why? Too young, gone too soon? Absolutely. A powerful, profound voice for lavish, radical love that will be missed beyond measure? Without question. I don’t know exactly why, I just know that I will miss...

This is what happens when you put the dignity of human beings in the hands of ruling authorities: the thumb may go up and the thumb may go down. When people (it’s traditionally straight men of the accepted color) are put in charge of deciding the fate of other people,...

I read those original lyrics again this year, and thought (as I always do) of the many LGBTQ and other marginalized people in my life who have no hope, no vision for the future. Their families have let their family member’s orientation or identity become an insurmounta...

The voice of a parent is a powerful voice. The voices of a multitude of parents is a movement. We are an unstoppable force. The parents are coming, and I am one of them.
