Last week the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) met at National Harbor in Maryland near DC. If you heard anything about it, you probably heard about a CPAC forum called "Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You're Not One?" that was every bit the dis ... More >>
Some thoughts on gay self-loathing as Republicans convene
The Voice's Michael Feingold already reviewed The Columnist, in which John Lithgow brilliantly portrays columnist Joseph Alsop in David Auburn's new play on Broadway. But, we wanted to share a few thoughts about our experience watching it this weekend, in light of other things we've been writing abo ... More >>
Not only did you folks rally to my defense when the head of the gay conservative group GOProud responded to my critique of their Romney endorsement by tossing off lame cracks about my looks and career. But on the popular JoeMyGod site, they came out, as it were, and said they're on my team too.
Ever since the conservative gay group GOProud backed Mitt Romney for President last week--albeit by a very slim margin--the epithets and insults have been hurling at them like taunts at a gay kid. But this time, the outrage is justified. I always thought that any gay who backs a candidate that doe ... More >>
In this week's feature in the Voice Pride Issue "Does 'Gay Inc.' Believe in Free Speech?" we take a long look at GLAAD, the self-described "PR firm for the LGBT community." Since the story was published Tuesday afternoon, a few events have happened as if on cue (one nationally, the others on a muc ... More >>
Part 1 in a series. Apart from GOProud and the Log Cabin Republicans, there is no doubt that all the major organizations which make up Gay Inc will be solidly behind President Obama in his reelection campaign over the next six months. (Mitt Romney may have once pandered to gay voters in Massachuset ... More >>
This is what Chris Barron of GOProud, the gay Republican group, had to say about those students at UC Davis getting pepper-sprayed. We knew that the pepper spraying moment had become a meme, but we weren't expecting this sentiment to crop up so quickly.
When activist Natasha Dillon realized a year ago that New York did not have any kind of mentoring program for the city's queer youth, she decided to do something about. Tonight, LGBT youth and mentors will meet each other at the first meeting of Guiding Proud, the organization which has paired them ... More >>
Last night was the night of the Fox-Google GOP debate, notable for the just-like-getting-a-gchat beep that went off whenever anyone talked too long, as well as a moment in which Stephen Hill, a gay soldier serving in Iraq, asked Rick Santorum whether he'd circumvent the progress that's been made for ...

‚ÄčAt the beginning of the week, porn impresario Michael Lucas was somewhat known as a controversial gay conservative writer, someone you could expect to see playfully debating Ann Coulter at a GOProud event. But he was far more famous for his day job as a top porn star. He seemed more likely to go ... More >>
The 2011 Conservative Political Action Cnference (CPAC), held last week, was in some respects like the previous year's: For example, everyone loved that the place was full of young people, until the kids gave libertarian Ron Paul their straw poll vote. There were some changes, though. Perhaps hopi ... More >>
It's even better than Alien vs. Predator. You see, porn titan Michael Lucas (from the audience) debated conservative pundit Ann Coulter (onstage) at the GOProud event this Saturday, and I got my grubby gay hands on video of this so we can see and hear for ourselves.
On Tuesday in New York City, Ann Coulter explained to a room full of homosexuals, gathered for GOProud's "Homocon," why they cannot get married: marriage "is not a civil right - you're not black," she said, according a report this weekend from Politico. "Blacks must be looking at the gays say ... More >>
