    The news in this year's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report on sexually transmitted diseases is not good. The number of cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea in the United States increased between 2013 and 2014, after being on the decline for several years. Cases of syphilis, which have been on the rise for the last decade, shot up in 2014. Chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis are the three most common STDs in the United States that are also notifiable, meaning health departments are required to report new cases to the CDC. (HIV and shigella are also notifiable STDs.) Chlamydia is...

    It kills me to write this post. I have spent more time worshiping Beyoncé than just about any other pop star. I've spent countless hours dancing to "Grown Woman" alone in my apartment. I've been the only guy in a dance class aimed at teaching the "Single Ladies" dance, and I loved every second of it. Beyoncé has been queen in my life since the first time I watched the "Crazy In Love" video. But. Over the past few months, Beyoncé has repeatedly refused the opportunity to speak out against the legalization of discrimination against LGBT people in her hometown......

    To keep up with the adventures of the Keswani family, visit PEOPLE.com/keswanis. It's been a big year for the transgender community, thanks in large part to Caitlyn Jenner. But not every member of the community is 66: Devina Keswani, the youngest of three children in PEOPLE's new web series, The Keswanis: A Most Modern Family, and a proud Girl Scout, is just 6. "One [of my classmates] hates transgender, and he hates me because I'm transgender," Devina says, adding, "Before that he liked me, but now he hates me. He spits at me and pushes me."

    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- On the first day of early voting, two new ads were released to abc13. Both of them are available here, but we are told will start airing on broadcast and cable television Tuesday. Lt. Governor Dan Patrick held a news conference Monday to unveil his offering. In the 30-second spot paid for by Patrick's campaign, the Lt. Governor stands against a flag draped background and tells viewers, "City of Houston Prop One is not about equality. That is already the law of the land. It's about allowing men in women's locker rooms and bathrooms."

    Mayor Annise Parker took a moment on Twitter to bash former Houston Astros star Lance Berkman after he voiced opposition toward the city's equal rights ordinance known as HERO. In late September, Berkman recorded an advertisement for the Campaign for Houston PAC, a group that is opposed to HERO. "My wife and I have four daughters," Berkman says in the ad. "Proposition One, the 'bathroom ordinance,' would allow troubled men to enter women's public bathrooms, showers and locker rooms. This would violate their privacy and put them in harm's way. That's just wrong." The mayor called Berkman a hypocrite for...

Instead, the judge ruled Friday, the teenager must continue using a separate, private bathroom that he has said makes him feel singled out and humiliated. Gavin Grimm, a teenage boy who was born female, used the boys bathroom for seven weeks with no problem, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which brought a lawsuit against the Gloucester County School Board on his behalf.

    Scott Walker was asked whether being gay was a choice. This was important to ask because homosexuals are an estimated 1%-2% of the population (not including transvestites who declare themselves gay, which actually makes them straight), so I understand the need to constantly talk about this little group at the expense of issues affecting the other 98%. So Walker was asked whether being gay is a choice and so far, unlike other gay-topical questions, he has only given one answer, which is "I don't know." But what I want to know is, if being gay isn't a choice, why is...

In 1875, parliament raised the age of consent to 13; in 1885, it upped it to 16. Now, a leading public health advocate has proposed that the United Kingdom bring the age down again in light of the high proportion of British adolescents who are having sexwith one anotherbefore theyre legally capable of granting consent.

The decision is consistent with the American constitutional principle that government must provide strong justification that is, it must point to serious and concrete harms before it denies a fundamental liberty such as the right to marry.

    In 2001 the Netherlands legalized same-sex marriage, then came Belgium in 2003, South Africa in 2006, and Argentina in 2010. With Friday's historic Supreme Court ruling, the United States has done the same.Given that the American Psychiatric Association classified homosexuality as a mental illness until 1973, that's quite the turnaround. As the Pew Research Center has documented in their polling, the stance on same-sex marriage in America has undergone a radical transformation in the past 12 years.

The 5-4 ruling had Justice Anthony Kennedy writing for the majority with the four liberal justices. Each of the four conservative justices wrote their own dissent. The far-reaching decision settles one of the major civil rights fights of this era -- one that has rapidly evolved in the minds of the American public and its leaders, including President Barack Obama.

His arraignment was pending Tuesday night. A police source said El-Amin wasnt charged with a hate crime because the Bronx man was gay and the attack wasnt motivated by hatred of homosexuals. El-Amin allegedly slammed a chair over the heads of...

    It looks like Spike TV didn’t find Clint Eastwood’s joke about Caitlyn Jenner during the Guys’ Choice Awards taping on Saturday very funny. A rep for the male-centered network said the reference will be cut from the telecast. “We will remove the reference in the version that will air,” David Schwarz, Spike TV senior vice president of communications, said in a statement. During the taping, while presenting “San Andreas” star Dwayne Johnson with a special award, Eastwood compared Johnson to other athletes-turned-actors like “Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody.” Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, made her debut as a...

    A young man in Delta, Utah alleges he was robbed, had Die Fag carved into his arm with a knife, and was forced to drink bleach on a Saturday night in late April, but it doesnt stop there. Five days later, the words Die Fag were spray-painted on his and his familys house. And this week, a Molotov cocktail was thrown through his window and his house was spray-painted again, this time with Youll Die. Burn Fag. ...

    The Duggar family sowed the seeds for their own downfall nearly a year ago when they sent out a hate-filled robocall to their entire town, Daily Mail Online can reveal The sequence of events which ended with son Josh being revealed as a child abuser began last August when they sent out the message to all the residents of Tontitown, Arkansas. The call urged them to vote against new laws preventing anti-gay discrimination laws and among those who heard it was Tandra Barnfield, a lesbian whose family know the Duggars. In protest Barnfield posed outside the Duggar home kissing her...

    I am not normal. This, I learned from a news story 35 years ago. The details have faded with the passage of time, but the gist of it remains clear. Some expert had crunched a bunch of numbers in search of the average human being, the planetary norm, and found that she was an 8-year-old Japanese girl, living in Tokyo. I dont fit that profile; Im willing to bet you dont, either. So as a matter of statistical fact, Im not normal and neither are you. I went to church with Bruce Jenner. Here's what Caitlyn Jenner taught me about...

    In discussing the scandal engulfing former House speaker Dennis Hastert, who is due in court this week, one thing must be made absolutely clear. What he is alleged to have done to young boys has absolutely nothing to do with being gay or gay rights. * Almost immediately after the news broke of Hasterts indictment, folks looked to Congress for signs of hypocrisy. Former representative Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who is gay, made an assertion during an appearance on Huffington Post Live last Monday that was flat-out inappropriate. Dennis Hastert twice as speaker tried to get the house to pass a...

    Its hard to decide whats more frustrating about Bruce Jenners decision play-act a woman named Caitlin: that were all supposed to ooh and aww over his new feminine face or curvy breasts (that look perkier than most), or that were supposed to act like this is at once fantastic and normal, brave and routine. Unfortunately for Jenner and society, it is neither. This is not only devastating for him, but for our cultureand the fact that few people will view it that way, and this publication will most likely get slammed for saying so, proves the point even more. Whats...

    The current main pop-culture headline involves former Olympian Bruce Jenner transitioning into a woman. Hes on the cover of Vanity Fair as Caitlyn, and hell be receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2015 ESPY Awards. Sadly, a large segment of our culture celebrates that which shouldnt be celebrated. Jenner needs compassion he obviously has a significant mental affliction but he certainly doesnt deserve an award for courage. Theres nothing courageous about a man living as a woman. On a related note, transgender activists in Canada are now lobbying to abolish gender references from birth certificates. From...
