In 1961 KQED produced what is perhaps the first known documentary about homosexuality in the United States called "The Rejected." It's been lost – until now.

A huge difference of opinion exists between white and Black Americans on what the Confederate flag stands for – largely thanks to revisionist history tactics successfully employed by the right.

+Herbert Carl Meyer and that's the only thing you could ever take pride in. What a shame.

In what may be among the most disgusting acts of the 2016 campaign yet, Donald Trump is using the murder of a woman to further his presidential campaign.

A group violently throws an LGBT person to the ground and violently attacks them as a crowd is heard cheering them on.

Have Rick Santorum and the National Organization For Marriage become so irrelevant that a major speech at the nation's top anti-gay marriage group annual gala goes practically unnoticed?

I see no particular moral problems with the current president. I don't agree with everything his administration does, but I don't see an underlying moral component to that disagreement.

In contrast, I find Rick Santorum's desire to impose his religious morality on the country through force of law to be offensive both personally and legally.

An Ann Coulter book signing this past week was interrupted by a group of protesters who, unsurprisingly, weren’t so into her controversial book, "¡Adios America!: The Left’s Plan to Turn our Country into a Third World Hellhole."

My heart is sad for this man today.
Watch as Mike Huckabee, with nothing left to lose now that the Supreme Court has ruled for same-sex marriage, denounces love as too "sentimental and emotional."

Mike Huckabee has unveiled what President Huckabee would do "on Day One" in response to same-sex marriage, and it's not only frightening, but probably unconstitutional.

The main problem is that Huckabee seems to think "people of faith" = "devout conservative Christians."  I can't wait to see President Huckabee confronting the need to defend the rights of devout conservative Muslims to some form of Sharia law, or the rights of liberal Christians to decline to sign execution orders or foreclosure notices they feel are injust and thus immoral.

That's assuming this isn't all just posturing to distinguish himself as holier-than-the-others-in-the-clown-car.

The right is exploding in anger over this, calling LGBT people the
"Gay mafia," and "anti-Christian activists."

In the Sweet Cakes by Melissa anti-gay discrimination case, the final verdict has been handed down, and conservatives are apoplectic.

A new video mocks an anti-gay ad about people who feel discriminated against because they hate gay people. Well, actually, they don’t hate gay people. One of them apparently has an unverified gay friend… somewhere. It’s true, because he said so.
