We’ve come a long way baby since the Stonewall Riots which sparked the modern LGBT rights movement and even though it’s important to remember how it all began, these days Pride is mostly a party, and that’s ok.

FOF #2495 – This Time You’ve Gone Too Far – 06.07.17  

Comedians go too far all the time- that’s the whole point, to find the lines you shouldn’t cross and then plow right through them.

FOFA #2468 – Uncovering Gay Anthems – 06.02.17  

With the exception of songs like Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” or Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out,” very few pop songs written as a tribute to LGBT folks have ever reached the top of the charts. But that doesn’t mean the songs that weren’t so gay to begin with couldn’t end up being the soundtrack at our favorite bars, drag shows or pride celebrations. Today, we take a look at songs that didn’t start out as gay anthems, but somehow the cover versions ultimately became LGBT legendary tracks.

FOF #2487 – Hold on for One More Day – 05.17.17  

It’s been seven years since the “It Gets Better” campaign encouraged folks to tell LGBT youth to hold on tight for one more day, but a new study says that approach isn’t the best way to deal with bullying.
