Jesse’s Journal: Dr. George Weinberg

Society and the Healthy Psychotherapist

When “Society and the Healthy Homosexual,” Dr. George Weinberg’s most famous book, was published in 1972, the consensus was that lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people were mentally ill.

Jesse’s Journal: LGBT Heroes — Cleve Jones and Barbara Grier

Looking back at LGBTQ history and those who ‘fought the good fight’

Even as we recognize and honor today’s LGBTQ heroes, we should also look back and remember those women and men who made our community what it is today. Unlike today, when leading an LGBTQ community organization is often a profession, the heroes of the 1960s and 1970s were volunteer leaders of a movement.

Jesse’s Journal: The Tabloid President

Donald Trump friend to ‘Enquirer’ publisher

During the recent unpleasantness that was the 2016 presidential election, much was made of the fact that the vast majority of newspapers endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton against the winning Republican, Donald Trump. A major exception, one that was ignored by the media, probably did more for Trump than all The New York Times or Washington Posts did for Clinton. Though it would be too much to claim that the National Enquirer carried the election for Trump, it certainly did much to express Middle America’s feelings for the Republican candidate.

Jesse’s Journal: Orlando Strong

Remembering those lost amidst bigotry and hate

It has been a couple of weeks since Omar Mateen went on a shooting spree that killed 49 men and women, mostly LGBT Latinxs, and tragically made the Pulse night club in Orlando the most famous LGBT bar since the Stonewall Inn.

Jesse’s Journal: North Carolina Broke My Heart

Guest Commentary

North Carolina was one of my favorite states. Though I never lived there, my partner Michael Greenspan is a proud Tar Heel who was born in Asheville, N.C., grew up in Charlotte, N.C., and graduated from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C. (then as now a center of progressive politics).
