    A great news site: www.advocate.com

    It is mainly geared toward gay, lesbian, transgendered, and bisexual (GLTB) current events, entertainment news, and health updates. Think "Entertainment Weekly" for the gay audience. It's got a bunch of helpful links and new stories about gay life and living happy and healthy.

    ________________

    A great Political site: www.hrc.org

    This site is the website for the human rights campaign (HRC). They are the organization in Washington D.C. who are fighting for equal rights for the GLTB community. I strongly encourage everone who can support them, to give money to them... even if it's $10 a week. They are the organization that has fought for, and won, huge battles for our community. And they need our help now, more than ever.

    Since sexual health is a concern for most guys, here's a message board that's maintained with a doctor with the center for disease control who offers actual "real" (versus conservative scare tactic) advice on a variety of topics for ANYONE who's sexually active...

    http://www.medhelp.org/forums/STD/wwwboard.html

    There are links to other STD fact sites; but I was browsing this and found some of what he had to say particularly insightful/helpful, such as:

    Hope this helps for anyone seeking advice of that nature -- it kind of puts things into perspective for anyone anxious about the sexual nature of things.

    Moderate Muslims: Gay is Okay
    by Kilian Melloy
    EDGE Contributor
    Friday Mar 28, 2008

    [​IMG]





    Muslim scholars at a meeting in Jakarta announced on Mar. 27 that homosexuality is natural and part of God’s creation.

    The Jakarta Post published a report on March 28 of the pronoucement made by moderate Muslims after examining the issue at a meeting put together by Arus Pelani, an NGO.

    Within the full context of Islamic teaching, the scholars said, the faith does not reject homosexuality. The scholars said that anti-gay teachings spring not from Islam, but from limited understanding of the teachings of Islam.

    Though anti-gay clerics frequently cite the Qu’ran in their condemnation of homosexuality, the Jakarta Post article quoted Siti Musdah Mulia as referencing a different passage from the Islamic holy text, al-Hujurat (49:3), which teaches that all people are equal without regard to gender, social status, wealth--or, says Mulia, sexuality.

    Said Mulica, a female scholar with the Indonesia Conference of Religions and People, "There is no difference between lesbians and nonlesbians."

    She continued, "In the eyes of God, people are valued based on their piety."

    Added Mulica, "And talking about piety is God’s prerogative to judge."

    Mulica said that, "The essence of" the Islamic faith "is to humanize humans, respect and dignify them."

    The Jakarta Post article said that Musdah claimed that homosexuality was not simply a matter of lust, and that it was part of God’s creation.

    Soffa Ihsan, managing editor of Mata Air magazine, argued that the concept of "heterogeneity" must also include gays and lesbians, the article reported, and said that matters of law needed to be decided by looking at scriptural sources with an open mind.

    Nurofiah of the Nahdlatul Ulama also spoke of heterogeneity, saying that it had resulted in a sort of tyranny-of-the-majority approach to homosexuality.

    She explained, "Like gender bias or patriarchy, heterogeneity bias is socially constructed."

    She added, "It would be totally different if the ruling group was homosexuals."

    Rido Triawan, head of Arus Pelangi, put forth the notion that cultural acceptance of gays did not clash with Islamic religious tradition, saying, "In fact, Indonesia’s culture has accepted homosexuality."

    Said Triawan, "The homosexual group in Bugis-Makassar tradition called Bissu is respected and given a high position in the kingdom."

    Triawan went on, "Also, we know that in [East Java] there has been acknowledgment of homosexuality."

    Conservative voices of Islam disagreed.
