If your Facebook friend suddenly debuts an especially patriotic avatar this week, it might not be because they’re extra excited about the 4th of July. To combat all that gay in their timelines, some conservatives are calling for true Americans cover their profile photos with American flags instead.
Friday’s Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage was a historic moment for civil rights in America, and for the first time ever, Facebook released a tool that encouraged people express solidarity with a rainbow profile picture. Naturally, Facebook is also keeping track of who’s using it. [Update: Facebook…
The lead author of a study claiming that short conversations can dramatically alter a person’s view on same-sex marriage has issued a retraction upon learning his co-author may have forged the data.
Was Siri programmed to be a Russian homophobe? A Russian-language speaker living in London recorded some rude responses to questions about being gay from Apple’s digital assistant.
Is there anything in the world better than a very wise and supportive and loving grandparent? Answer: maybe pizza, but probably not. As proof of this, I offer up an extremely moving letter that was posted on FUCKH8's Facebook page, in which a nameless grandfather berates his daughter for kicking her gay son out of…
It seems that there's enough circumstantial evidence to suspect that Kerry Rhodes—a good NFL player who was photographed being physically affectionate to another man—has been secretly blacklisted by the National Football League. Drew Magary builds the case at Deadspin.
DC Comics—publishers of Batman and Superman—has forbidden the lesbian marriage of Batwoman and her girlfriend Maggie, resulting in the resignation of the comicbook's creative team. It's a bizarre move, since their relationship has been explicit for a long time.
Unlike their female relay runners kissing on the mouth, these rainbow-painted Russian Army tanks are just a happy mistake. Sadly, almost nobody—especially the military—is celebrating the gay cause in a fascist country that is actively prosecuting LGBT people.
It's time to stop pussyfooting around and ban the Russian Winter Olympics. The world can't celebrate them in a country ran by a fascist who actively promotes gay hate and a population that attacks and kills them without punishment. It's like Hitler's 1936 Olympics all over again, says Stephen Fry. He's right.
Fascist Russia is actively oppressing gay people and systematically ignoring human rights in general. So, instead of just demanding that gay athletes and tourists are not persecuted, why don't we just cancel the Winter Olympics altogether?
Russia, a fascist state that's armed with enough nuclear weapons to easily kill everyone on Earth, is also a country that legally and officially hates homosexuals and anything that could be considered (by a bigot) to be pro-gay. At next year's Winter Olympics, visitors and foreign athletes will be subject to the same…
Two men assaulted a LGBT group in the subway last Sunday's night, shortly after New York City's Gay Pride parade. They verbally abused them and physically attacked two women while travelling on the Queens-bound F train, then fled.
In many of the science fictional futures that we know and love, racism, sexism, and homophobia are often scrubbed out of existence. Here's why science fiction is in favor of allowing people to marry whoever they want.
Hey look! Amazon has a new book sales policy. The policy, instated today, spontaneously transformed many books about LGBT issues into "adult" titles, and therefore no longer includes them in the "Best Sellers" lists/rankings. UPDATED
Apple, long a proponent of gay rights, is putting its money where its mouth is, donating $100,000 to the group No on Prop 8. Proposition 8 is a ballot initiative in California that would deny the rights of same-sex couples to marry. Kudos, Apple.
