SORT BY Relevancy
June is LGBTQ Pride Month. Despite the popular images of wealthy LGB celebrities, many queer and trans* people are low-income. Employment discrimination, lack of health insurance, homelessness, and other factors make LGBT people particularly vulnerable to the impact of economic inequality. Gay and lesbian families (especially the latter) are significantly more likely to be living below the poverty line than heterosexual married families, and children in gay and lesbian households are twice as likely to live in poverty as compared to children in homes with heterosexual parents. And given the legacy of racism in the U.S., the statistics are even worse for LGBT people of color. Other concerns include: trans justice and violence against LGBTQ youth.

What does LGBTQ Pride mean to you? How as Pride evolved for you over the years?

History buffs will recite how the 1969 Stonewall riots mark the beginnings of an on-going civil rights movement. Yoruba Richen's TED talk offers a concise, insightful look into how our civil rights movement mirrors the tactics of other civil rights movements.

Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown, the smart, adorable, and clever hosts of the very popular YouTube series AsapSCIENCEposted a video yesterday in which they came out as both gay and a couple of seven and a half years.
The reason for the video and the announcement was for the guys to address the numerous antigay comments they’ve received on their videos.
“Although, in general, our YouTube experience has been extremely phenomenal and supportive, we’ve also experienced a lot of negativity and discussions around our sexuality. And therefore we felt the need to sort of come again,” Brown says in the video, noting that both he and Moffit have been out, proud gay men since “late high school.”
“Part of our mission with AsapSCIENCE has been to make it as inclusive and accessible as possible, and that’s not only through relatable topics or humor, but also by breaking down gender stereotypes and using drawings that represent … different stick-figure family orientations,” Moffit adds. “Because that’s the way the world is and we think that the enjoyment of the scientific exploration process should be available to everyone.”
Watch their video announcement below.

No, I'm no more racist than the next person. The fact is that the War between the states A had very little to do with slavery. In fact, it had nothing to with slavery until 1863 when Lincoln used it as a political agenda to save his sorry, dictator wannabe butt.
The War Between the States was about state rights. The north was imposing tariffs out the wazoo on the south. Illegal tariffs, I might add.
Sure, the south wasn't perfect; who is? All I'm saying is that they were the ones ultimately in the right in that 19th century fiasco and they took the flack for it because the winners write the history books. No the true history is written by warriors.
If you want to argue with me, please, argue intelligently. I loath hippies.
Just remember two things: 1) THE NORTHERN STATES HAD MANY SLAVES; 2)The emancipation proclamation claimed (because it had no legal authority) to free only the slaves in the "rebelling states." Northerners were free to keep their slaves until the 13th Amendment.
Why does it matter? Because a lot of heroes died trying to defend the Constitution of the United States of America, which was, at the time, still the Supreme Law of the Land in most cases. After this atrocity more commonly known as the "Civil War," all clauses and amendments regarding states rights have been ignored in every case that didn't directly benefit the federal government.

Proverbs 8:13-14 (KJV)..
13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

Hey there Tea Sippers. We hve got a delcious pot of tea for your nerve to day that will sent you into the stratosphere! We will be talking about the educational system from a different point of view. We've heard so many people talking about, criticizing, and doubting the current institution of higher learning, but no one seems to have an answer or a workable set of solutions. Well, the time has come to embark upon a new education initiative that will not only speak to improving the cirriculum, but encourage a populous to thrive as it builds allegiances and supportive strong fronts that will empower and edify the community.
With the K-12 school structure being under the rule of what seems to be a Judeao Christian structure, an innovative approach to learning and acquiring the primary life skills required to be a productive citizen is on the horizon. The Pride School Atlanta is in development to revolutionize the institution of education as it bridges the gaps that hosts all of the phobias which hold society hostage. Established by Christian Zsilavetz, Pride School Atlanta will seek to provide a safe place for the LGBTQQIA communities and their families to learn and matriculate while supporting and celebrating diversity and acceptance throughout its student body and facaulty. We will delve into this new and excited possibility of a Pre K-12 school system and address all those burning questions that may be on the forefront of your minds.
This is going to be a very HOT POT of TEA so make sure you have plenty of crumpets, darlings.
We have a giveaway for Nomad's provided by Climbing Life Guides! Lauren will share information about Palm Springs Pride, the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan and other events.
