Small town residents threaten to sue their own kids’ financially strapped school over a rainbow flag

Residents of Marshall, Minnesota (population 13,680) gathered this week to voice their extreme outrage over a rainbow flag that recently appeared in the cafeteria of a public school. During the tense community gathering, which was actually the second meeting held about this issue, many quoted from scripture, claiming that being LGBTQ was “against God’s preordained purposes and order” and fearing the rainbow flag would “confuse” or demoralize students who feel the same way. Never mind those who ...

Navin Noronha has a thing for married men. Or maybe it’s that they have a thing for him. It’s unclear. But he’s hooked up with quite a few over the years, and he writes all about it in a new essay titled “Everything I’ve Learnt From Sleeping With Married Men as a Gay Man” published by Vice. “Many gay men I know, including myself, have gotten their hearts broken at the hands of men married to women,” Noronha writes, “with many swearing off this category altogether after having their hopes dashed...

Instead of apologizing to the gays, Wendy Williams needs to fix herself

What a girl wants depends on the girl, and what Wendy Williams really really wants is as obvious as the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ agenda: She wants traditional gender roles. She wants to wear men’s shirts, short skirts, to color her hair, do what she dares. She wants a man who makes her feel like a woman. But then, who needs men at all on Galentine’s Day? During the February 13 episode of her eponymous daytime talk show, Wendy explained the Parks and Recreations twist on Valentine’s Day...
