Transgressing gender in the Bible

I was raised in Evangelical and Pentecostal traditions where I wasn’t taught to see my transgender self in the Bible. With socially conservative Christian dogma being that transgender people are not of God, it’s important to note there are gender variant people in the Bible where God worked through them. Bible scholar and actor Peterson […]

San Diego Pride Board disappoints … again

Yes, once again the San Diego Pride Board did not listen to our community. A vast, vast majority of LGBT activists and leaders overwhelmingly supported and stood by Stephen Whitburn, who was dismissed as San Diego Pride’s executive director.

The ACA has never been more popular

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) passed with no Republican votes. It’s a favorite talking point of the right, or was until Tuesday. Obamacare is now bipartisan, thanks to 20 Republicans who voted against the American Health Care Act (AHCA) that squeaked through the House of Representatives by 217-213. Did those 20 Republicans, who ran on […]

The Guardians are back in a swashbuckling sequel

Part of why people loved Guardians of the Galaxy so much when it came out in 2014 was how surprised they were: The Guardians are not well-known characters outside of diehard Marvel Comics fans; no (at-the-time) major starred in the movie and few knew of writer-director James Gunn beyond his screenplay for Scooby Doo. There […]

TDOE’s heartbreaking protest

Hearing a transgender police officer being called “pig” by a protesting group plugged into the Trans Youth Project (TYP) at the recent Transgender Day of Empowerment (TDOE) struck me as heartbreaking. “We want The Center to be a space that is safe. This means no cops,” read an April 14 statement from the TYP’s Facebook […]

Horseshoes, hand grenades and special elections

Congressional candidates in recent special elections have outpaced the Democratic Party’s recent electoral history and still lost. In the Kansas 4th District (KS-4), James Thompson took nearly 46 percent in a place where Democrats hadn’t cracked 40 percent in over 15 years. In Georgia’s 6th District (GA-6), not won by a Democrat since 1976, Jon […]
