When it comes to relationships, straight people in marriages and gays in long-term, intimate cohabitation partnerships may pick up unhealthy habits from their significant others, U.S. researchers say.
A new Northwestern University study has found evidence to support the existence of bisexual men, a sharp contrast to a 2005 study from the same university that reported opposite results.

Sunday saw hundreds of gay couples getting married in New York's city hall. It was the day the new law legalizing gay marriage went into effect and state officials had big plans to marry all 823 couples, both gay and straight, who applied for licenses that day. There were cheers all around the state, and among the elated couples were Cynthia Nixon, of Sex And The City fame, and her longtime girlfriend, Christine Marinon.
I recently read Jenna Birch's article A Christian's Take: God Doesn't Approve Of Gay Marriage and found it entertainingly disturbing. I would like to thank the author for a well-written opinion piece that is more "personal opinion" than "gay-bashing," and using the Bible as a reference and not as a shield.
Honey Davenport was in character, performing his usual set at a Manhattan drag bar. Clad in a rainbow leotard and platform heels, he took a swig of his drink and ripped off his wig—sweaty and exhausted from the hourlong performance. Suddenly cheers erupted: New York's state legislature had legalized same-sex marriage, and on the eve of gay-pride weekend. Davenport's boyfriend made his way to the stage and got down on one knee. "Will you marry me?" he asked.
Where were you when New York legalized same-sex marriage? While we're a long ways from passing any federal laws in favor of gay marriage, it's tough to deny that last Friday's events mark significant progress for the LGBT movement. After all, the movement began in New York City's West Village, which erupted in cheers after hearing in the news.
In what is being touted as the biggest sex study since the release of the Kinsey Reports, Ogi Ogas—a former biodefense researcher—has found that when it comes to sexual preferences, we're all a lot kinkier than we'd care to admit.
I have to admit, over the past 25 years, I’ve been a little obsessed with “Oprah.” Okay, maybe not just a little bit—maybe a lot more than that. To be honest, I have been a major fan of hers from the very beginning. In 1986, when I saw her on the air for the first time, I connected with her immediately. I couldn’t believe that here, for the first time, here was a woman on television who resembled no one else I had ever seen on network TV. She talked about issues that clearly mattered to her.
Being a parent is hard enough as it is, much less being a gay celebrity with kids. Ask anyone with children, and more likely than not they will admit being a parent isn’t easy. Now just imagine managing the stress of taking care of your child’s basic needs and nailing that Oscar role while finding the best surrogate mother possible or depending on the country, even fighting laws to have your marriage recognized in order to adopt.
"Intimacy freak-out." You've seen it before. You've probably encountered it during your dating escapades. It happens when things seem to be going famously with that special guy you've been dating, and when things start getting just a little bit serious, BAM! He disappears, never to be heard from again, for no apparent reason. Or those men who will have sex with you, but they refuse to kiss you during foreplay and then they're immediately clothed and out the door faster than a speeding bullet after they've had their climax.
Plenty of movies and TV shows toy with the possibility of turning research subjects gay by injecting them with a serum, but findings published in Nature demonstrate that real-life scientists can do something similar by tweaking the serotonin levels in mice.
Shocker: unlike what popular culture might suggest, college campuses aren't actually a hotbed of lesbian experimentation. In fact, the National Survey on Family Growth reveals that women who didn't finish high school were more likely to have engaged in same-sex activity than women who graduated with a bachelor's degree.
Let me paint you a picture. . . You sit on the lumpy lounge chair at the coffee shop, sipping your cappuccino while trying to look occupied reading today's local newspaper, your eyes periodically shifting to the front door of the shop, hoping to catch a quick glance of the man you'll be meeting for the first time. You've had a million first dates, it seems, but the nervous anticipation and excitement always seems to show itself through your sweaty palms and rapid heartbeat. What will this meeting be like? Could he be "The One?"
In what's being lauded as a victory for the LGBT community, Facebook has added civil unions and domestic partnerships as relationship statuses for users in the United States, Canada the United Kingdom, France and Australia. The feature, which went into effect last Thursday, allows you to choose either of those options (or "in a Civil Partnership," for those in the UK), in the drop-down menu of familiar statuses like "Married," "in a Relationship," and "it's Complicated."
