I am obsessed with gay culture; I analyze, praise, and sometimes denounce every piece I come in contact with. That is why I was excited by the announcement of Ryan Murphy’s new show baby, The New Normal. The basic premise is about a gay male couple that seeks out a surrogate mother in order to start their own family. Toss in a misunderstood daughter, a sassy black personal assistant, and a homophobic and racist grandmother and you have the perfect grounds for a hilarious sitcom. - – Read more
NOTE: Question here is, WHY are gay characters in the media, television, film, videos etc., always portrayed as “TRENDS”. Such a Joke that really ain’t all that funny …! Point is, the time is right for the marketers to make some money, BIG TIME, at the expense of the Gay Community. Next year it’ll be some other Group….ha-rrrrrray.
“Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT) was the official United States policy on homosexuals serving in the military from December 21, 1993 to September 20, 2011. The policy prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted homosexual or bisexual service members or applicants, while barring openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service. The restrictions were mandated by United States federal law Pub.L. 103-160 (10 U.S.C. § 654). The policy prohibited people who “demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts” from serving in the armed forces of the United States, because their presence “would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.” - – wanna Read more, CLICK
During the 1950s, the paperback as well as the magazines, rocketed in popularity. With the lifting of paper shortages and the collapse of the pulp magazine distribution network, the paperback became the dominant format for Gay and Lesbian fiction publishing. There’s a wide selection of these classic paperbacks, in great shape, from this era, online. What is pulp fiction? Pulp fiction is the popular fiction published on cheap wood pulp paper between 1920 – 1955. The Special Collections Research Center recently acquired an important collection of 1960s and 1970s gay pulp fiction novels issued by local publisher Guild Press. Guild Press was a mail-order paperback book service founded in 1962 by former Georgetown University philosophy professor H. Lynn Womack that specialized in pulp fiction aimed at a gay male readership. These books can be found by searching in the ALADIN catalog. On the other hand, Lesbian Role Distinction in the 1950′s, Sexuality, Social Life, and Public Image are all compiled with a somewhat unique history. But, in lieu of ALL the Studies, Research, Advertising & Progress, Closeted LGBT Men & Women still are bursting at the seams in Closets that remain “Full to Capacity”. Oh well! Maybe One Day, many, many light-years from now, distinctions about Sexuality will not have to distinguished, discussed or taught, rather it’ll be “Extinguished” completely in order for People to be just who they are.

Acceptance is crucial—especially when you are a teenager facing all the hurdles of growing up, learning who you are and establishing yourself in society. Add being LGBT, and you begin to see what it is that so many of our youth face today. “GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) Network is a youth leadership organization that empowers youth activists to fight homophobia and transphobia in schools by training student leaders and supporting student-led Gay-Straight Alliance clubs in California and throughout the country,” said Daniel E.
