Major governmental issues have been at the forefront of of conversation when it comes to the political stance of candidates such as immigration, gun laws, gay rights, environmental needs, abortion laws and women’s rights, and policies on state and federal levels.

Why I march for Pride

in Real Talk

It’s 4pm and time for a shift change. My restaurant manager, Norman, sidles up to the waiter that’s just walked in to take over from me. Eric is on night shift tonight. Eric is openly gay.

in Real Talk

If you’ve ever been hurt in a relationship you might have considered being alone, regrouping and focusing  on yourself. Some of us explore ourselves inwardly and outwardly finding that we ourselves are fluid with all genders. When it comes to dating many of us want a better answer that explains our ideas about what definitions to use. GLAAD is a media group helping shape the narrative by provoking dialogue that leads to cultural change.
