Commentary: Many LGBT families left out of Obama's executive action

Last week, President Obama took bold action to grant relief to an estimated five million undocumented immigrants who are currently living in the United States.

This step represents a huge victory after Congress refused to pass legislation to overhaul and repair our broken immigration system. But while the president’s proposal will help make the system more humane and workable, it is only a first step. Significant work is still needed for the system to work for everyone, including the estimated 267,000 undocumented people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT).

Marriage equality will come too late for one Florida family. Liz Molina, 35, passed away on Monday.

Fearing blacks and gays

The USA and Blacks: The U.S. Supreme Court in its restricting important aspects of voting rights legislation, and actions of some states to suppress the black vote suggest there is a fear of black participation in the electoral process.

Nicole Murray Ramirez, a civil rights pioneer in San Diego for more than 40 years, has written a passionate column titled "The Smearing of Carl DeMaio" that was published in LGBT Weekly in mid-October.

The anti-gay hatefest: A who's who of the 2014 Values Voter Summit

Commentary: Who's telling the truth at LGBT Weekly?

SAN DIEGO, California -- A casual reader of LGBT Weekly this week would get two starkly contrasting views on congressional candidate Carl DeMaio.

Publisher Stampp Corbin portends to climb into "DeMaio's political mind" and concocts a fantasy of a candidate who would do anything to "win at any cost." Corbin makes some outrageous allegations against DeMaio, none of which are sourced or referenced or proven by the facts.
