What happens when the ‘gayby boom’ grows up?

Lucy and Carter, the two youngest members of the Georgia Voice staff

If you turned out for the afternoon session of the Human Rights Campaign’s “Bowling for Equality” on Feb. 26, you may have noticed the two youngest members of the Georgia Voice team.

Carter, age five, gamely rolled a few slow gutter balls, while also finding time to play “Angry Birds” under our table and spill a drink precisely in someone’s shoe.

Religion blog: A straight man, a trans woman, and a lesson for all of us

I remembered an old quote from a former Hall of Fame major league baseball pitcher by the name of Satchel Paige: “Never look behind you, ‘cause something might be gaining on you.” Ain’t that the truth?

Folks on both sides of the various debates will tell you they are fighting for the very soul of America.
