One Nation Two Spirits ... Our Native American Brothers & Sisiters

One segment of the LGBT community which is overlooked, most likely not even thought of, are our Native American brothers and sisters.

I became aware of Two Spirits about a year ago when adding categories to my link blog LGBT Rainbow Links.

Aside from being part of our community, the history of Two Spirits goes back before the first Europeans set foot in The New World.

FOCUS Breaks GLAAD/YouTube Story

Artlyn Entertainment's LGBT commentary blog FOCUS broke a story late Friday afternoon about GLAAD's YouTube account being suspended for "Copyright Infringement".

The suspension of the YouTube account affects videos GLAAD has on it's website.

GLAAD is the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and is known for it's annual GLAAD Media Awards.

Do Something NOW About DADT President Obama !

Just a day after the grandiose invitation only meet and greet over cocktails at the White House with LGBT "leaders" and President Obama to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Stonewall, comes word that on Tuesday a military board in Syracuse, NY has recommended Lt. Dan Choi be fired from his position with the Army National Guard in violation of DADT. Lt. Choi is a founding member of Knights Out and spokeperson for the group of LGBT West Point graduates.

Michael Jackson's Death Boosts Readership Of LGBT Newscenter

It's a sad fact but Michael Jackson's death boosted The LGBT Newscenter's readership to over 500 on Thursday creating the highest one day readership since readership tracking of the site was started a week ago.

With the live CBS News feed featuring coverage from KCBS-TV and then late in the evening another Los Angeles TV station, it provided LGBT Internet users non-stop television coverage for several hours of the sad breaking news of Jackson's death.

A special West Coast edition of The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric was also streamed live.

Uganda: Come for the wildlife, stay for the gay-bashing.

GLBTQ rights in Uganda have sucked for years, with open persecution by of gay, lesbians and other queers being propagated by hateful and ignorant people in positions of power.  The country has instilled oppressive laws against homosexuality and court cases have challenged these.  The police and mobs have taken to routinely beating, torturing and killing gays, ostensibly to protect the population from immorality.  (Apparently, killing unarmed people who love each other is not immoral in Uganda.  Lucky break, there.)

Not A Stellar Day For LGBTs

In a double whammy on Monday, first the Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to the policy of Don't Ask Don't Tell.

Many see President Barack Obama dragging his feet as he has yet to do anything about DADT despite campaign promises he would champion the repeal of DADT.

IS HRC Complicit In Keeping DADT Status Quo ?

Earlier this week, Jason Bellini a distinquished journalist formally of CNN, CBS and host of CBS News on LOGO, wrote and presented a video report on the website The Daily Beast in regards to whether HRC (Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT pro-rights group) may have had a hand in and struck a deal with the Obama Administration in delaying taking action on DADT in favor of other LGBT issues.

While We Look At Prop 8, More Iraqi Gays Die

This morning I wrote a rather in-depth commentary about the continuing plight of LGBTs in the Middle East, in particular Iraq, where more Iraqi gays have been found murdered recently.

I waited until today to let most of the Prop 8 writeups and blogger op-eds dry up so this piece could surface in the LGBT blogosphere.

For those you have not followed any of the articles (few and far between), Network news coverage (little if any) in regards to one of the fallouts of the invasion of Iraq, this may come as quite an eye opener.

My Commentary About Taking Gay Marriage To The Supreme Court

It's been a couple of weeks since I wrote that I may not be posting here very much. But as for the most part I now work on my blogs Monday through Friday only, this will allow me to do a posting here at ePluribus on the weekends when I something I would like to cover or bring to your attention a commentary at my blog FOCUS.

Is It Appropriate To OUT Someone ?

This has been a sore subject with me ever since the magazine OUT was first published and the OUTING craze began back in the 90's.

Lately at just about every turn when either I'm checking news for myself or my blogs, someone, somewhere on the Internet or publications (which I read via website) are outing, attempting to out or are yelling from the highest pink mountain peak that so and so should come out and be a role model.

Really !?!

Two links I have for you today.

What a great 18 hours to be in the LGBT news business

Promoted. Originally posted 2009-04-04 09:49:15 -0500. -- GH

It started about Noon (ET) Thursday afternoon looking for feeds to cover the Vermont House vote on same-sex marriage.

After finding an audio feed from Vermont NPR and a video feed from WPTZ an NBC affiliate in upstate New York I was ready to cover this event by tweeting updates on the Twitter feed LGBTNEWSCENTER, the feed for LGBT Rainbow Links Newscenter.

If we were all homosexual, what would happen to the human race ?

I was looking for LGBT news articles to link to on my site LGBT Rainbow Links Newscenter when an article in one of my feeds caught my attention.

The article from the begins with a conversation the writer, Jackie Bueno Sousa had with a friend who brought up (an exasperating and idiotic point for LGBTs) that if everyone was homosexual what would happen to the human race ?
