A Fulfilling Life

Guz Viewz – The perspective from our Senior Editor and word wrangler, Kathy Guzman. I have been reading a lot more lately. Filling my head with the words and insights of other people – artists, thinkers, poets and dreamers. Thinking that perhaps I can enlighten myself and understand more certainly what this life is really […]

A Matter of Time

Guz Viewz – The perspective from our Senior Editor and word wrangler, Kathy Guzman. I started thinking again. This time on the day of my little girl’s 25 th birthday – I know – I know….hard to believe…..Thinking about time and all it brings to us, takes from us, promises and demands of us. There […]

The Human Rights Campaign: Friend or Foe

When the subject of The Human Rights Campaign comes up among lesbians I often hear ENDA, rights, marriage, transgender, and the debate commences. Many people and organizations in the LGBTQ community are very supportive of HRC and the work they do, while others shut down at the mere reference to the organization citing the 2007 […]

Cardinal George, It’s time for an Epiphany

Every New Year’s Day, I brunch with the Gay and Lesbian Outreach and Support group from my Catholic parish on the Northside. This year, we were excited to talk about the news that our State Rep, Heather Steans (along with her colleagues), would introduce the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act as early as this […]

Don’t want to vote? Think again

By Dalila Fridi Like many, I am ready for the 2012 Presidential election to be over! This campaign has lasted close to 2 years, and as much as I enjoyed the entertainment, I cannot wait to see President Obama’s name as the winner. I am not so disillusioned to think that this will be a […]

Binders full of Women and other STFU moments of Romney’s campaign: a recap

“I’m not familiar precisely with what I said, but I’ll stand by what I said, whatever it was.” —Mitt Romney (May 17, 2012) As a public official, every single word muttered is at risk of widespread criticism. As a public official running for national office, you can be sure that thinking before speaking is the […]

Dear Archbishop Myers

Dear Archbishop Myers, How are things in New Jersey? Weather been good? I just love this time of year. Sooooo, about that little letter you wrote that’s been splashed all over the interwebs. Um, sixteen pages? Got a little time on your hands, eh? Nice how you were able to fortify it with lots of […]
