I found some of the most inspiring people and stories and communities on there.” And there you have it. Internet. But despite an...

It’s not often that we slow down to just listen to a stranger’s experience, unless it involves falling into a lion enclosure or some equally...

Well, then you probably don’t care that the reality-TV-star-turned-Republican-nominee-for-President just released his very first piece of LGBTQ swag on his official campaign website.

The “equality tee” is being sold for $30 a pop (+ S&H) and only comes...

Never has discrimination looked so beautiful. Sometimes a fashion statement says so much more than "I'm fierce." When Dutch designers Mattijs van Bergen and Oeri van Woezik joined forces for EuroPride, they knew they wanted to contribute something that spoke volumes.

Hong Kong Pride

This past Saturday was the date of the annual Gay Pride festival in Hong Kong. Last year, the festival was also attended by the Occupy activists as well. It was felt that linking the political democratic tone of the Occupy movement and a gay rights agenda was not universally accepted.  However, what did happen is the Occupy activists supported the call for equality in gay rights.
