So, little Turtlers, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has released the nominees for its Media Awards. And there’s this:

GLAAD nomination

As you can see, we are among excellent company and are honored to be nominated.

Richly deserved, and congratulations.

(Full Disclosure: BTB is the first “gay blog” I turn to every morning.)


January 22nd, 2015

WOO HOO! Mazel Tov!

How is the voting conducted?


January 22nd, 2015

Me too, I read BTB every morning. BTB and Equality on Trial are my first reads every day. I like the history especially.

I hope you get the award.

(And, just for the fun of it, I’ll tell how NOT to enjoy this site. I decided, this year, to collect all your daily history items and rearrange them into chronological order. The main result has been that I’ve been putting off even *opening* those posts to the point that, three weeks into the year, I’m already two and a half weeks behind. So into the trash that idea goes.)

Hyhybt — I had the same idea this time last year. I was going to create a series of pages that would allow you to read brief synopses in chronological order with links to the fuller stories in the daily agendas. When I planned to get it done in December, then I could start 2015 off with a big unveiling. I got January done and made it half-way through February when real life intervened and I haven’t gotten back to it.

And thanks to all of you for your support, feedback and encouragement.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

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.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International. In this series of reports, I talk about what I learned there: the people who go to these conferences, the things that they hear, and what this all means for them, their families and for the rest of us.

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

Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council submitted an Amicus Brief to the Maryland Court of Appeals as that court prepared to consider the issue of gay marriage. We examine just one small section of that brief to reveal the junk science and fraudulent claims of the Family “Research” Council.

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count

Daniel FettyThe FBI’s annual Hate Crime Statistics aren’t as complete as they ought to be, and their report for 2004 was no exception. In fact, their most recent report has quite a few glaring holes. Holes big enough for Daniel Fetty to fall through.
