All right, stupid questions, but “in fact, investigators weren’t even sure whether that death was a murder or suicide”… how could someone possibly do that to himself?

And was the porch murder ever solved, or did the police even care enough to try?

Just as a reminder, Jennifer Higdon from your 12/31/12 Daily Agenda will be co-host tonight at 8PM PST on a weekly radio show from Portland, OR called Club Mod. It’s a radio show that focuses on modern classical composers and can be heard online at

My late Partner, Larry Grenier, danced with alvin ailey decades ago. He was the only white boy in the company, because apparently, they had to have one.He always used to laugh about the effects of affirmative action.

I remember Larry Grenier dancing with them! I LOVED that he stood out for being white! Wow..I didn’t know that Ben. He was a fantastic dancer.
The Ailey Co. is one of the greatest for their standards in modern dance to this day. And one of my favorites. Them, Pilobolus and Garth Fagin, Merce Cunningham are my fave modern companies.

Wow, Regan, thanks for that! Larry would be so pleased to know that someone still remembers him as a dancer.

I remember one time around20 years ago we were visiting New York, and went into a used book store. In the “antique book” section there was a dance subsection, and in that subsection was a book with an article in it about Larry Grenier. in the “Antique books”!!!!!

He said he didn’t know whether to laugh out loud or hide somewhere and cry.

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing
