LGBT History Month Icon Of The Day: Gilbert Baker
Thanks to Gilbert Baker, LGBT people have the rainbow flag as their symbol of pride.
“The rainbow is a part of nature and you have to be in the right place to see it,” Baker said in a June interview with CBS Chicago. “It’s beautiful, all…
My name is Brittany McMillan, but you probably know me as the founder of Spirit Day. In 2010, I asked people all around the world to wear purple in support of LGBT youth who are being bullied and in memory of several LGBT-perceived teen suicides. The response that year was overwhelming and I expected not to have to do it again the next year. But along came September and I was reading about more LGBT teen suicides and I knew we had to run Spirit Day again. Now, Spirit Day has become an annual event and we are hoping you will participate again this year….
So on October 19th, wear purple. And on the days leading up to it, talk about Spirit Day, talk about equality and tolerance. Let people know that you are accepting and that you will not stand for bullying because the best way to start a movement is to get talking. Also this year, GLAAD and I have come up with some fantastic ideas and ways to take action and I’d encourage you to participate, as well as find your own ways to support Spirit Day. So we’ll keep you updated, but please, spread the word. You never know who just might need to hear it.
Thank you for your support,

“Bisexual men in the present study demonstrated bisexual patterns of both subjective and genital arousal.” ‘Sexual arousal patterns of bisexual men revisited’ Rosenthal AM, Sylva D, Safron A, Bailey JM
Berkeley, California, may be the first city in the country to officially proclaim a day recognizing bisexuals.
On Tuesday Berkeley City Council unanimously declared September 23 to be Bisexual Pride and Bi Visibility Day. Bisexual pride celebrations have been held on September 23 in Los…
I dig everyone– dudes, chicks, people whose plumbing traditionally matches their gender, those who don’t match and everywhere in between … Being non-monosexual is difficult. Many of us feel alone and like we have no one to relate with or look up to.
Here are some of the mental and societal road blocks that kept me from being comfortable with who I was:1. I thought I had to be either gay or straight and couldn’t be both. I had no bisexual role models.
2. If I’m bisexual I should feel absolutely the same about men as I do women.
3. Your gay friends think you’re confused, your straight friends think you’re confused. No one takes you seriously.
4. People think you are destined to a life of cheating because you’ll never be satisfied.
5. What are you exactly? Bisexual? Pansexual? Queer? Why did you choose the wrong label?! I’m offended!
It’s LGBTQ, not LGTQ. Some people forget the B as if it were silent.
