    During its fall meeting on September 22, the Dartmouth College Board of Trustees approved the construction of The Triangle House for the College’s LGBTQIA students. The vote affirmed the Board’s commitment to the Affinity House, which was previously stated at its June 7, 2013, meeting. “The Triangle House will be a welcome addition to Dartmouth, and a tangible sign of the Board’s commitment to increase the diversity of social, intellectual, and residential options on campus,” says President Phil Hanlon ’77. “It is also part of Dartmouth’s continuing commitment to having a campus that is inclusive, respectful, and engaged.” Located at...

    It's now official policy in Massachusetts: Adults holding traditional values will no longer be allowed to adopt or be foster parents. On May 15, 2013, the Boston Bar Association held a forum with the Mass. Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Mass. Commission on LGBT Youth. The DCF speakers confirmed that they are "weeding out" adoptive and foster parents who are not willing to wholly accept and support LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender) self-identification by a child in their care. The general topic of the evening was the growing number of LGBT youth needing foster care. The...

    In a controversy that threatened to overshadow the 30th anniversary of Dallas’ gay Pride parade, some LGBT activists expressed outrage this week after organizers reminded participants about the need for the event to be family-friendly and said nudity and lewd behavior will no longer be tolerated.... Jeremy Liebbe, a detective sergeant at Dallas Independent School District, will oversee 95 officers from DPD and DISD as co-commander of security for the parade and festival. Liebbe, who’s gay, said any floats in violation of indecency standards will be warned in the lineup on Wycliff Avenue prior to the parade. If they fail...

    ABC plans to air an 8-hour miniseries about the history of homosexual activism, penned by a prominent homosexual political activist. Homosexual writer and director Dustin Lance Black will write the miniseries. Black’s project is not the only homosexual-themed miniseries ABC has in development. The network is also planning an adaptation of journalist David France's How to Survive a Plague, a 2012 documentary focused on militant gay activist groups ACT Up and TAG, which organized protests during the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. Included in the documentary is footage of the infamous 1989 protest at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in which protesters...

It’s unclear whether the individuals in high heels and form-fitting dresses are members of the Air Force. Observes one airman: “We can’t even have Bibles on our desks. This base is not a platform for political agendas. It is a military installation. The display was totally inappropriate and offensive.” Good thing they kept his name out...

    More than 80 lawmakers have called on the Obama administration to allow gay men to donate blood. The lawmakers say the administration should change what they say is an "outdated" policy. Eighty-two lawmakers in the House and Senate signed on to the letter, including Sens. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Enzi was the only Republican to sign the letter. They said Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius should re-evaluate blood donation criteria that ban gay men from donating blood for life.

Students in a general psychology class at Columbia State Community College were directed by their professor to wear “Rainbow Coalition” ribbons for an entire day and express their support for the homosexual community, said Travis Barham, an attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom.

    The logic works like this: If homosexual acts are moral, as so many now insist, then they should be normative. If they are normative, they should be taught in our schools as a standard. If they are a standard, they should be enforced. And so it has come, and is coming, to be. Education is an essential part of the drive to universalize the rationalization for homosexual behavior; so it must become a mandatory part of the curriculum. What began as a plea for diversity ends with a demand for conformity.The infiltration of higher education by LGBT studies is well known....

In 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Boy Scouts had the Constitutional...

The Rev. Harry Reeder III, senior pastor of the 4,100-member Briarwood Presbyterian Church, former moderator of the Presbyterian Church in America and outspoken critic of efforts to change Boy Scout policy on homosexuality, said evangelical churches are a bedrock of support for the Boy Scout tradition in Alabama. That’s now in danger, he said. “When a church holds to a biblical social ethic of sex only between a man...

It has targeted gay and bisexual men, and nobody knows exactly why. The city’s best hope to curb the outbreak is to vaccinate as many at-risk men as possible, focusing on those most in...
