Last Friday, May 17, marked the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO). IDAHO provided an opportunity to galvanise support behind eradicating discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, as well as the violence that so often accompanies it.
This year’s focus for International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) on May 17 is ‘Fight the Homophobia Web Virus’. The target is social media, where tempers and prejudices thrive – it’s a breeding ground for anti-gay sentiment where abusers never face their victims.
I swear my column is slowly turning into a recollection of sexual escapades, or ‘My Really Awesome Love Life...’ (That last part was sarcasm.) This week I’ve chosen to write about the complexities of casual relationships and basic casual NSA etiquette.
Remember that episode of The Simpsons where Bart queries a bumper sticker being offered by the Log Cabin Republicans, “A Gay President in 2084”? That episode was first aired back in 2000. But has much really changed or is this still a reasonable prediction?
