It’s not a gay kiss, it’s a kiss. An open letter to the straight friend.

“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.” ― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life I’m in love! I am wildly, madly, deeply, paradigm-shiftingly, make up words if I want to, in love. And yes, I am [Read More…]

Bruce ain’t goin’ to NC, but I am…and we’re both right.

Major corporations, film and television productions and even broadway musicals are boycotting North Carolina over legalized LGBT discrimination in HB2, a law that explicitly bars transgender individuals from public bathrooms for the gender they identify as. This, my friends, is the very definition of unconstitutional because it is in direct violation of the 1st and 14th amendments. About the [Read More…]

Homophobia in the doctor’s office

Over two years ago I posted about the fear I carry when visiting the doctor, especially when taking my children to receive health care. I hear all the time, from otherwise well-meaning folks, that things are getting better so I have nothing to really be afraid of. Actually, friends, the more things change, the more [Read More…]

Why this Christian lesbian was not at the Gay Christian Network Conference

I am hearing truly wonderful news of love and warmth and transformative experiences coming from the Gay Christian Network conference this past week.

Franklin Graham is right, there is sin in homosexuality

The other day Franklin Graham, in a self-righteous, power-coveting, ignorance-laced, fear-inducing rant on Facebook garnered over 147,000 likes, 58,000 shares and 18,000 comments by with a post about the sin of homosexuality. And after much soul searching, prayer and study I’ve decided it’s time for me to tell the truth about the sin of homosexuality. Now hang on, I’m not saying [Read More…]

ALL are welcome – and by all we mean some

The other day on the vast, rolling sea that is Facebook, I saw and reshared an image originally shared by Mark Sandlin who is an ordained PC (USA) minister, co-host at The Moonshine Jesus Show, blogger at Patheos and The Huffington Post. Copyright As of this writing, 99 folks signaled their approval with their god-given, handy-dandy thumbs-up. [Read More…]

My cup runneth over

If you’ve read my blog recently or happen to be one of the unfortunate souls being subjected to my endlessly sappy Facebook feed, it should be pretty clear by now that I’ve lost my damn mind and fallen head over heels in love. I promise to return you to our regularly scheduled programming of exploring [Read More…]

What happens when two women walk into a South Texas courthouse to get a marriage license ?

About three days after the love imbued, justice bent, paradigm shifting decision of the Supreme Court of the United States welcoming same-sex couples into the covenant of marriage, I finally found my grown-up words amidst the heavenly chorus of joy and the clamoring cacophony of vitriol. In that post and in subsequent Facebook conversations I extended an invitation. What I [Read More…]

Friends do not “think differently” about my humanity or “disagree” about my sacred worth

Every week, hell, nearly every day, I get called out in public or private on Facebookistan about my refusal to maintain “friendships” on Facebook with people who think differently than me or have a different opinion than me -ABOUT ME. It just doesn’t make a lick of sense to me but like the fool I apparently am, [Read More…]
