Michigan House Votes To Ban Domestic Partner Benefits

The Republican-controlled Michigan House has voted to ban all city agencies and state-funded universities from offering domestic partner benefits.

In 2004, a one man and one woman marriage amendment was approved by voters.

After 18 Years, ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Comes To An End

For such a hotly debated subject, one that often escalated to raised voices and raw emotion, the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ and acceptance of openly gay men and women into the U.S. military has seemed remarkably quiet and calm.

2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

The 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque adds chic design to the legendary off-road prowess that has always been an integral part of the Land Rover brand.

To Make A Winning Car, First Win Over The Gays

Like it or not, gay men are considered trendsetters. Maybe it’s because we’re disproportionately represented in the fashion and design industries, or maybe it’s because the “gay gene” comes with a trendy sixth sense. (“I see dead people, and they’re…
