Stonewall Library Harlem Renaissance

The Stonewall Library and Archives in Fort Lauderdale is set to celebrate gay and lesbian contributions to the Harlem Renaissance with an exhibit to be unveiled at the start of African American History Month on Feb. 2.

The exhibit mirrors the assertion of acclaimed black historian Henry Louis Gates that the Harlem Renaissance was "surely as gay as it was black, not that it was exclusively either of these." As time has passed since the African-American literary revival of the 1920s and 1930s, also referred to as the Jazz Age, Langston Hughes, Richard Bruce Nugent, Bessie Smith and others have been increasingly accepted as gay icons. Their work offers a lens into a cultural moment marked by progressiveness and acceptance.

Your Wardrobe

Everyone wants the person they're in love with to think they look bangin' hot, and if they truly love you, there's no doubt that they should. Fashion is a category in one's relationship that stands all on it's own. Have you ever dated anyone whose wardrobe was a complete atrocity? That it is thin ice to tread, indeed.

Some of you may argue that what you or she wears is truly not a matter of importance when developing a long and lasting relationship with someone. But, really, in order to keep your attraction alive and burning bright for years to come, it's vital to nudge your love in the right direction if she happens to be a total "closet" case. Just try and not hold her ex against her in the process.

Olberman Rips Limbaugh & Robertson

"Mr. Robertson, Mr. Limbaugh. Your lives are not worth those of the lowest, meanest, poorest of those victims still lying under that rubble in Haiti tonight. You serve no good, you serve no god. You inspire only stupidity and hatred, and I would wish you to hell, but knowing how empty your souls must be for you to be able to say such things, in a time of such pain, I suspect the vacant purposelessness of the lives you both live now are hell enough already."

No Cameras In Prop 8 Trial
