North Carolina Lawmaker: ‘We Need To Reach Out To Gays, Get Them To Change Their Lifestyle’

FORRESTER: I’ve got a few homosexual patients and I treat them just the same as anybody else.

KATE WINSLET ON HER KIDS BEING GAY: ‘IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE TO ME’ 

Kate Winslet: “I like the diversity that my children are exposed to every day. I love the way their brains work. Joe [her son] turns to me the other day and says, ‘One day, I will have a girlfriend. But I might have a boyfriend. If I’m gay.’ He’s 7! And I said, ‘You might have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, darling.’ And he said, ‘Which would you prefer?’ And I said, ‘My love, that would be entirely up to you, and it doesn’t make any difference to me.’ But that he knows! It’s a real privilege. Talk about the best education.”

Madisonville students say school won’t allow Gay-Straight Alliance

After years of bullying, a group of Sequoyah High students in Madisonville, wanted it to stop. “From 6th grade all the way up to my senior year, I have been put down for my sexual orientation, for “acting gay,” for being an outcast,” said senior Nathan Carroll. He didn’t want younger students to endure what he’d been through . He started researching and decided a Gay-Straight Alliance or GSA is what his school needed. “What this club is trying to do is to stop the bashing. It’s giving us a confidential place to talk about it,” he said.

A lieutenant colonel and an Army captain will become the first gay military couple to marry since Argentina legalized such unions last year. In 2009, Argentina ended its ban on gay and bisexual troops serving openly.

Top 20 Things That Owe Their Existence to Queers

After reading the Bilerico Project‘s list of the Top 20 Most Important LGBT Figures in History by Adam Polaski, I thought that it would be a good idea to create an entirely different sort of list.
