Transformations: A review of "Our America with Lisa Ling - Transgender Lives"

As a result, every tour company in Cuba (and all those associated with Cuba) are jumping on the bandwagon, offering educational and research tours to people from the United States.

Sunday is Bring Your Gay Teen to Church Day in Houston

HOUSTON -- Ebie Hussey's first reaction when her son announced that he is gay was to offer unconditional love.
Finding a new church was a close second.

"His first question was, 'Am I going to hell?' " Hussey said of that conversation with her son, Jaxn. "Mainstream Christianity and fundamental Christianity really pushes that homosexuality is a sin, and he had caught on to that."

Jaxn, now 15, knew his parents didn't think that. "But I had always heard people saying that kind of thing," he said.
