Gay guys reveal the best part about being in an age-gap relationship 

 

Age-gap relationships have always been a part of the gay experience.

From the Greeks to Ellen DeGeneres, gay and bi people have always connected across generations.

And while there is still some stigma surrounding them, many people form happy and healthy age-gap relationships.

Look at diver Tom Daley and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who are married but have a difference of 20 years.

Rugby player Sam Stanley is in his late 20s. His long-term partner, Laurence Hicks, is 34 years older.

Anime Did Not Make My Son Gay

 

No, anime did not make my son gay. He’s bisexual, anyway. Anime didn’t “do” that to him either. I won’t link to certain places online that contain ludicrous opinions about how children can be “made” gay (or on the spectrum of LGBTQ) because of the friends they choose, the toys they play with, or the entertainment they enjoy. I won’t give those ignorant people more traffic. My son watched lots of shows, including anime. He is bisexual. My daughter watched lots of shows, including anime. She is straight. A study of n=2, but if you want to get into the latest science of why homosexuality is a natural expression of humanity, check out this article based on a TED talk by James O’Keefe. Back to anime.

When my children were young, I returned to college and befriended a group of geeks who introduced me to anime and manga. I distinctly remember seeing manga once in high school on Long Island in the ’90s: A Chinese exchange student brought in an oddly thick and small comic book. When I asked him about it, he explained that in Asia comics were books called “manga” and, even though cartoons were mostly for children in America, that wasn’t the case in Asia, where manga and “anime” were created for all age groups. I remember the cover looking a bit racy and he bashfully explained that this particular manga was definitely not for kids.

LGBTQ Elders Made Our Lives Possible—Now We Must Care for Them 

 

The LGBTQ movement stands on the shoulders of giants. Fifty years ago, our LGBTQ elders shattered barriers at Stonewall. A decade later, they spoke truth to power as AIDS ravaged their chosen families. In the years before and since, they marched on Washington and are still fighting for justice today.

Now it is our time to fight for them — because all too often, LGBTQ elders are not receiving the care and support they deserve. With experts predicting that as many as 4.7 million LGBTQ older adults will be seeking care and services by the year 2030, we must act now.

That’s why the Human Rights Campaign is joining SAGE, the premier advocacy organization for LGBTQ elders, in stepping up to address this injustice by helping to ensure LGBTQ older adults will be treated with respect and dignity when choosing and receiving aging and long-term care.

Forgotten LGBTI heroes remembered in this author's powerful book 

 

Five years ago, author Mason Funk was, well, in a funk. He couldn’t sleep.

Back in his youth, he was as ordinary as ordinary gets.

Los Angeles, California of the 70s was his home. The beaten Californian sun splashed the windshields of Sturz Blackhawk cars and Gulf petrol stands. Los Angeles Dodgers games dominated TV tubes.

A typical 70s good kid – part of a youth church group, straight As at school, always shouldering a smile – but Mason was gay. ‘What the hell was I going to do?’ Mason thought.

He was a gay teen flummoxed by his feelings. He had no clue how to express these feelings, but knew how to put on a pair of platform shoes and tight white pants to Dodger games.

‘Fast forward to five years ago, and I’m lying in bed with my husband,’ he told me over a trans-Atlantic call, ‘and I couldn’t stop thinking how my life got from there to here.

‘From the past to the present.’

This History of Gay Bars Is Also a Tale of LGBTQ Liberation 

 

The new documentary San Diego's Gay Bar History surveys some of the 135 bars that have existed in the city and chronicles the various aspects of the LGBTQ community that have grown within them. Directed and produced by Paul Detwiler, the film has been released on the city's PBS station, KPBS.

The earliest example of a gay bar in San Diego came in the 1957, when straight ally Lou Arko bought the popular lunch club of the 1930's, the Brass Rail, and extended it into a meeting spot for gay people at night.

The post-World War II era heralded the opening of many more bars, catering to the independent men and women who had moved to the bustling port city for military jobs. During this time, when homosexuality was criminalized and it was even against the law for two men to dance together, the bars provided a meeting place for LGBTQ people who were otherwise isolated.

Who Should Own Photos of Slaves? The Descendants, not Harvard, a Lawsuit Says 

 

The two slaves, a father and daughter, were stripped to the waist and positioned for frontal and side views. Then, like subjects in contemporary mug shots, their pictures were taken, as part of a racist study arguing that black people were an inferior race.

Almost 170 years later, they are at the center of a dispute over who should own the fruits of American slavery.

The images of the father and daughter, identified by their first names, Renty and Delia, were commissioned by a professor at Harvard and are now stored in a museum on campus as precious cultural artifacts.

But to the Lanier family, they are records of her personal family history. “These were our bedtime stories,” Shonrael Lanier said.

How the politics of racial resentment is killing white people 

 

Why do many working-class white Americans support politicians whose policies are literally killing them?

This is the question sociologist and psychiatrist Jonathan Metzl tries to answer in his new book, Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland. The book is a serious look at how cultural attitudes associated with “whiteness” encourage white people to adopt political views — like opposition to gun laws or the Affordable Care Act — that undercut their own health.

The book is not about racism at the individual level, though you can certainly read that into it. For Metzl, the key question is how did a politics of racial resentment become so powerful that it overwhelmed even the basic instinct for self-preservation? To get answers, he spent years talking to voters in Southern and Midwestern states, asking them to explain their political choices. The answers aren’t terribly satisfying, but they are instructive.

I spoke to Metzl about what he learned and what he thinks we can do to solve this problem. A lightly edited transcript of our conversation follows.

Jane Fonda Calls For Hollywood to "Invest as Much in Saving Films as Making Them" 

 

Emphasizing that the resources available to preserve Hollywood’s film history are “woefully inadequate,” Jane Fonda urged the Hollywood community to “invest as much in saving [films] as making them."

That was the call to action at the The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) Film Restoration Summit, which the HFPA presented in partnership with The Film Foundation and Institut Lumière, Saturday at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

"More than 50 percent of films made before 1950 are lost to us forever," HFPA president Meher Tatna warned, explaining that the HFPA's commitment to preserving cinema history through support of film restoration is one of its most important initiatives. She added that the HFPA’s “decades long” support of this mission has already seen more than $6.5 million invested in 125 film restoration projects.

Fonda noted that this isn't just about preserving Hollywood classics, but also newsreels and documentary material. "Films were made because filmmakers wanted to make sure what happened would never be forgotten," she said. "If we allow documents of our past to disappear we end up [without the whole picture]. We can't know where we are going if we don't know where we have been."

6 Sneaky Signs a Trusted Adult Could Be a Child Sexual Abuser 

 

Michael Jackson is now deceased and consequently he will never be convicted in a court of law, but many of Jackson’s alleged behaviors were typical of those exhibited by child sexual offenders who use grooming behaviors. Grooming behaviors are the behaviors and techniques a sexual offender employs so that they can engage in abuse without detection. Grooming behaviors are directed toward the intended victim, the child’s parents or guardians and the community at large. They generally follow a series of stages that may include selecting a vulnerable victim, gaining access to the child, developing trust of the child and their guardians, and desensitizing the child to sexual touch so the abuse can take place without detection. However, many of these grooming behaviors also overlap with behaviors that caring, involved adults engage in and thus it is often hard for adults to recognize them before abuse takes place.

The following behaviors could be potential indications of grooming.

Mister Rogers Was Allegedly Bisexual, and Twitter Is Thrilled  

In conversation with one of his friends, the openly gay Dr. William Hirsch, Fred Rogers himself concluded that if sexuality was measured on a scale of one to ten: “Well, you know, I must be right smack in the middle. Because I have found women attractive and I have found men attractive.”

LGBTQ adults are younger, poorer than general U.S. population, study finds 

 

An estimated 4.5 percent of U.S. adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, and they tend to be younger and poorer than the population at large, according to an analysis of polling data released on Tuesday.

The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law examined previously released results from the Gallup Daily Tracking survey and went deeper into the data, enabling a more detailed demographic picture of the adult U.S. LGBTQ population of roughly 11.3 million people.

The institute found Washington, D.C., had the highest percentage of LGBTQ people at 9.8 percent and North Dakota had the lowest at 2.7 percent.

Did Michael Jackson Abuse Because He Was Abused? 

 

When Amanda Robson’s husband, Wade, first told her that he had suffered years of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson, she grew worried for the safety of their son. “Is there any confusion as to what is appropriate in how you love [him]?” she says she asked Wade, in the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland.

Her concern, that as an alleged victim of molestation her husband may have been a threat that spread that evil to another generation, reflects a view so embedded in the culture that it rarely merits much discussion. But the “cycle of abuse,” as it’s often understood, is nothing less than psychological Lysenkoism: the belief, in the absence of clear, empirical evidence, that lived abuse tends to propagate across generations and reproduce itself in specific ways. The facts about the “intergenerational transmission of maltreatment,” as scholars call it, are very complicated, and while there’s some truth to the idea as it’s generally portrayed, there’s also a fair amount of falsehood.
