LGBTQ* Photographs and Organizations You May Have Missed

From The Marin Foundation:

The “I’m Sorry” Campaign is an effort to apologize to the LGBT community for the ways Christians have caused harm and to show our commitment to making things better in tangible ways.

LGBTQ* Voice, Insight and Stance
Robyn Ochs of Bisexual Resources: 
ON OPPRESSION: Some folks say that bisexuals are not oppressed because at least we are accepted by mainstream society when we are involved with members of the opposite sex. Agreed, society may like us when we show that piece of who we are. But conditional acceptance is not really acceptance at all. When we show our other side, our gay side, we suffer the same discrimination as other gay men and lesbians. We don’t lose only half our children in custody battles. When homophobia hits, we don’t get just half fired from our jobs (put on half time, perhaps?). We don’t get just half gaybashed when we are out with our same-sex lovers (“Oh please, only hit me on my left side. You see, I’m bisexual!’). We, too, get discriminated against because we are gay.
