    ArticleA Gospel Message For Queer People Of Faith

    This article is for everyone who’s been kicked out. If you have lost your home, your loved ones, your faith community—this is for you. If standing in your truth is a sin, we’ve all made the fatal error. When waking up, living, breathing are de facto outside of your community’s moral bounds, and you are... more...

    ArticleYes, Black Lives Matter, why do you ask?

    I was living comfortably as a middle-class stooge in Manhattan when a discussion among friends moved to police killings. I mentioned that the little I knew about the police was that their training was insufficient and the shootings, though certainly race-based, could be laid upon the doorsteps of this training. Looking back at this... more...

    ArticleGod Walk

    “Enoch walked with God after the birth of Methuselah three hundred years, and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, then he was no more, because God took him…” – Genesis 5:22-24. In my Brooklyn neighborhood, it’s not at all unusual to walk past a... more...

    ArticleJoy, Joy, Joy, Peace and more Peace!

    I stood inches from the pealing wail of the Shofar during last week’s Rosh Ha-shanah services at East Side Synagogue. This commencement of the Jewish High Holidays and the welcomed entrance of the year 5778 reminded a full room of people of their purpose and God’s presence. In the Jewish tradition, the loud bleating of a... more...

    When my fiancé and I arrived in Aruba, my only knowledge of the island was a missing white girl from a few years back. Well, that and the resorts for which I had come. The first few days we spent there we did the typical bourgeois things such as sit on the beach and swim and cool off in the cafes. And, if only to highlight from... more...

    ArticleBringing Bi-Perspective to a Trump World

    I confess Donald Trump's ascension to the presidency threw me for a loop. His regime required me to review all my priorities, choosing again what I devote my time, talent and treasure to.  After years of primary attention to LGBTQ well-being, my focus shifted. Our community was not the first to land in Trump's crosshairs.... more...

    ArticleA Path of an Immigrant

    I was born In Uzbekistan, a beautiful country with endless opportunities for the few and poverty for many. I was among the few. My father, a successful upholsterer, has ensured a comfortable life for our family in a two story house with two swimming pools and a beautiful garden. I would only spectate the economically struggling... more...

    ArticleDocumenting Angels: Why I Fight for DACA

    When I was young, I would often ask my mother stories about why we came to America. I wondered why we didn’t stay in the Philippines with many of our other family members. I was curious about why my mom would want to leave a place that she grew up in and established her life within. After all, these were the beautiful lands that held many of her fondest memories.

    In the aftermath of Charlottesville, David Fagin published an opinion piece titled Becoming a Racist: The Unfortunate Side Effect of Serving Your Country? about a group of veterans that served as armed guards for Nazi protesters. Noting that this group of veterans claim their deployment experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan radicalized... more...
