Cynthia Nixon: Bi Heroine Tells It Like It Is (tags)

Actress Cynthia Nixon caused a brief furor last January and ruffled the feathers of the Queer Thought Police by daring to say publicly that as a Bisexual she believes she did have a choice in her sexual orientation, and she doesn't see why people should assume she's a Lesbian just because her current relationship partner is a woman.

Sean Wherley: Activist Comedian Laughs Out Proud (tags)

Bisexual Forum Targets Invisibility and Bigotry (tags)

Bisexuals, the "B" in "LGBT," are actually the largest of the four groups represented by that unlovely acronym, but they're also among the most misunderstood people in the Queer community. They face bitter and often ferocious prejudice and bigotry not only from homophobic straight people but from Gays and Lesbians whose anti-Bi beliefs lead them to be threatened by the existence of Bi people. The Bisexual Forum of San Diego held a workshop at the San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center May 12 to dispel some of the misunderstandings other Queers have towards Bisexuals and tell their stories, which often involve a dual coming-out process: first as Lesbian or Gay, then as Bi when they realize they can no longer deny either their same-sex or opposite-sex attractions.

Walter G. Meyer: Queer Youth Novel “Rounding Third” Is About More than Baseball (tags)

Queer author Walter G.Meyer has written a remarkable first novel, “Rounding Third.” At base it's a story of two middle American Gay teens who meet each other on the high-school baseball team in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. But it’s also an intensely moving, often heart-rending tale of the terror under which Queer youth still grow up as well as the often surprising sources of support they find as they struggle with their identities. And, lest readers think this is a problem that we’ve grown beyond as a society, Meyer inserts modern communications technology — the Internet, cell phones, texting and iPods — to make sure readers know these are live issues in 2010 and not dimly remembered horrors of the 1950’s or 1970’s.

Behind the Scenes at San Diego’s Gay Fraternity (tags)

KEVIN KAO, EZRA EVANGELISTA and ARTHUR HUANG probably wouldn’t have joined any other fraternity, but Delta Lambda Phi was different. Not only was it founded 22 years ago specifically for Gay, Bisexual and “Progressive” (Queer-friendly) men, but its members get along and have fun with each other without drinking or hazing.

On hooding (tags)

A few citations concerning the practice of hooding supposed terrorists, taken (with one exception) from John Conroy's excellent book _Unspeakable Acts, Ordinary People: The Dynamics of Torture_ (Berkeley: U of CA P, 2000). Rather than add further commentary, I have instead affixed a photograph of unknown origin -- and leave all commentary to the reader.

FAIR Media Advisory: Southern Partisan: "Setting the Record Straight" (tags)

Lee, [Gen.] Stonewall Jackson and Confederate President] Jefferson Davis...." --John Ashcroft. FAIR provides a sampling of other quotes to show just what Ashcroft was talking about.
