Gilbert Baker, Whose Rainbow Flag Sewed LGBTQ World Together, Dies Suddenly at 65

BY ANDY HUMM | Gay pioneer and artist Gilbert Baker, who died in his sleep at age 65 on March 31 at his home in Manhattan, did not just create the iconic Rainbow Flag but he gave it away freely to the world where it was embraced in every corner — from its origins in San […]

Baiting Trump

BY KELLY COGSWELL | I was so happy when I saw the “SNL” skit for the first time with the brilliant Melissa McCarthy decked out as Sean Spicer, guzzling gum, throwing tantrums, blasting the press for questioning Trump’s Muslim ban, destroying language itself, and offering an imaginary narrative, while accusing journalists of spreading fake news. It […]

Lessons from Egypt on Organizing the Resistance

BY KELLY COGSWELL | Six years ago last week, on January 25, 2011, mass demonstrations began in Egypt that would topple the corrupt, brutal regime of Hosni Mubarak. Following the lead of Tunisia, demos were at first just inspired by, and reported on, social media. After a couple days, they became so big even Egypt’s […]

Trump Redux in France?

Trump Redux in France?

BY KELLY COGSWELL | In France, we’re gearing up for a presidential election where the likely victor, François Fillon, is as friendly with Putin as Trump is and has policies as disastrously conservative as Pence. There will be no saviors from the floundering left. The incumbent Socialist president, François Hollande, is so unpopular he isn’t […]

To Bounce Back, Democrats Must Take on Income Inequality

BY NATHAN RILEY | Democrats should choose between the voters and its donors.

When Facts Don’t Matter

BY KELLY COGSWELL | During the presidential debates, every time Republican candidate Donald Trump opened his mouth he lied, and Democrats had a field day presenting the screen-captures of a tweet he’d claimed never to have written, videos of him saying things he’d denied, photos of him chatting with shady characters he said he didn’t know. […]

When Trump is King

BY KELLY COGSWELL | We could have done it. Had the first female president of the US. And one of the smartest, most prepared executives ever, but never underestimate misogyny. Never underestimate the vast selling power of hate and fear, and a sensationalist, ratings-grabbing media that insisted on covering Trump as if he was a […]

Our America

Our America

BY KELLY COGSWELL | I was following my Twitter feed and channel surfing during the “debate” the other night when I heard a news anchor announce the police were looking for a serial groper. When I glanced up I really did expect to see Donald Trump’s pink butthole of a mouth and flabby sulking face, but […]

The first conference, entitled LGBTQ Movements in Central and Eastern Europe: Successes, Challenges, Perspective, took place on June 17 and 18 and […]

With Guns Instead of Games, What About Russia’s Gays?

With Guns Instead of Games, What About Russia’s Gays?

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | A year ago, world attention on Russia focused on two things –– the impending Winter Olympics in Sochi and new legislation that, under the guise of preventing “homosexual propaganda” targeting children, in fact was the leading edge in a legal and extralegal assault on that nation’s LGBT community. Thanks to the efforts […]
