  • Anchorage, Alaska - Opponents of Anchorage's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender non-discrimination law may need to get more specific in their ballot language seeking repeal.

  • In its November issue People magazine named David Beckham as the sexiest man alive. Even though he is straight he has been a good friend and supporter of the LGBT community and has integrated, absorbed, recycled and rebranded many of the aspects of the most sophisticated gay men.

  • Volleyball players from around the world are going to be hitting the sand for the Swatch FIVB World Tour Finals in Fort Lauderdale.

  • 2015 is shaping up to be a great year for artists from the ‘80s. I have to be honest, I went into New Order’s “Music Complete” their tenth studio album with some cynicism and lowered expectations. The last two albums (“Waiting for the Siren’s Call” and “Lost Sirens”) felt forced, like they were trying to purposefully recapture something that was being lost with time. Quickly into “Music Complete” my cynicism turned to optimism, then wonder and awe. Overall, this is an optimistic record about gluttony and narcissism.

  • Chris Voth plays for the other team, and claims it has cost him a professional contract.
