Creep of the Week: State Rep. Dave Agema’s only way

By: D’Anne Witkowski* There’s one thing you can say about the state of Michigan: it’s too friendly to gays. I mean, yes, it’s still legal in Michigan to be fired for being gay.

Thinking Out Loud: Who you calling a hater?

By: Abby Dees*/TRT Special Telling people who are uninformed or locked into intolerant thinking that they are in fact hateful isn’t going to bring about introspection. They will, at the very least, simply disagree; perhaps rightly. For another, it makes us look as reactive and unsubtle as the people campaigning against us. I’ve always had […]

By: Jason Lydon/TRT Columnist- This summer, I spent a good amount of time on the road, traveling around in an adorable red Toyota.

The realities of trans bodies: fully functional, or not

By: Lorelei Erisis*/TRT Columnist- A quick note to my readers: The language and descriptions in this month’s column are of a pretty adult nature.
