May 17, 2015: What is a “Rogue Pastor?”
This LGBT advocate/writer/husband/father is also a pastor at North Raleigh Community Church in North Carolina. Next month he’s launching a virtual — and literal — place of hope and acceptance. This place has been named “The Table,” and Pavlovitz describes it as “Christian community for all people.”
We got wind of John’s work and had some questions for him. Lucky for us, he had more than just answers to offer; he also gave us inspiration.
May 10, 2015: A Mother’s Journey
For many gay youth coming out to their parents is a dreaded task. How will they respond? Will they still love me? Some parents say it’s a phase, others look into “Conversion Therapy” and sadly some parents simply say “get out.” For the Rudulph family it launched their entire family into an incredible journey.

April 19, 2015: Marijuana or Same-Sex Marriage?
Monday is 420, the legendary pot smoker holiday, celebrated by tokers everywhere, legal or not. It made us stop to wonder, how many states currently allow marijuana usage vs how many states allow same-sex marriage? Who is winning America’s acceptance faster?
April 12, 2015: Florida did what?
This last week the Florida House of Representatives overwhelming voted a similar measure, but this one was directed at LGBT families looking to adopt. It would allow adoption agencies to turn away an LGBT couple, stating based on their religious beliefs they don’t feel a child should be in a home without a mom and a dad.
