Senior Moment

April 20th, 2012 No comments

In this post over at the New Civil Rights Movement, I take a critical look at a new affordable housing development for LGBT seniors for Philadelphia. It’s slated for move-in by late next year.

My brain is having fun thinking of the various senior activities such a place will host…any thoughts?

Analysis of Today’s Prop 8 Decision

February 7th, 2012 No comments

It’s over at the New Civil Rights Movement. Seems like the court, in its 2-1 decision, was trying to whisper directly into Justice Kennedy’s ear. Let’s see if it works.

“Rick Santorum, Meet the Gallaghers”

In this piece just posted to The New Civil Rights Movement, I use a superficially silly comparison to the Showtime hit “Shameless” to make a broader point: Santorum’s positions are loco.

They’re Still Standing

Today, the CA S Ct opined that the Prop 8 official proponents have standing to appeal under state law. The Ninth Circuit will surely accept the ruling, and we can move on to the merits of the case. Here’s my analysis over at The New Civil Rights Movement. As always, comments welcome — on either site.

First Post on The New Civil Rights Movement Now Up

It’s here. Please, trundle on over and see what you think. I’m responding to the argument from the left that marriage equality would be bad for the GLBT community. I get into how the denial of equality in marriage for women negatively affected not only married women, but all women.

The New “New Civil Rights Movement” Blogging Adventures of Old Me

October 3rd, 2011 1 comment

Yes, my wandering through the blogosphere only lasted for a weekend. Last Friday evening, I met David Badash, the founder and mover of the New Civil Rights Movement, and just today I’ve agreed to blog for them on a basis-to-be-determined-as-we-go-along. The site features some great opinion and analysis of LGBT issues, and is often quoted and linked to by influential media.

Whatever I write for that site, I’ll link to here. Expect something by week’s end, and then frequently until I can establish some rapport with readers. Here’s hoping that 365gay and Word In Edgewise readers will support me in this new venture. I’m looking forward to doing some good work.
