    August 5, 2008 | 8:30 pm

    Since 2002, when I started becoming open about my personal religious choice to stop having sex with men, liberals on gay issues have repeatedly accused me of being a Jewish "ex-gay." But I am no such thing, because Torah Judaism doesn't have a concept of an ex-gay.

    I have no doubt...

    produced by Sandi Simcha Dubowski, we meet Mazen, a 20-something Egyptian man who has fled Cairo for Paris to avoid the three-year prison sentence authorities want to impose on him because he is gay.

    "I was in jail a year before my trial," Mazen says as he watches a video recording...

  • Gays get married and I’m still single

    I hate gay men. OK, so I don't literally hate them -- some of my best ... no, actually my best friend is a gay man -- but I hate that there's yet another group of guys who are unavailable to me. Married people, actors, Republicans and other men who don't like women: Gay men.

  • Big Bay Area Jewish turnout for gay weddings

    June 22, 2008 | 4:53 pm

    SAN FRANCISCO (JTA)—Three years ago, Sharon Papo and Amber Weiss stood under a chupah in a Santa Cruz redwood grove and recited their vows before 100 relatives and friends.

  • Same-sex marriage and the fabric of society: What does it all mean?

    By Julie G Fax

    June 17, 2008 | 9:04 pm

    If you look at the fine print, last month's landmark Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage doesn't change much in practical terms. Domestic partnership, available to Californians since 2005, gave couples nearly all the same legal rights and responsibilities as marriage,...

  • Gay Orthodox Rabbi Peels Back His Life

    "Like peeling an onion," Rabbi Steven Greenberg said, about the process of coming out. The first openly gay Orthodox rabbi, he initially wrote about his sexuality under a pseudonym, Rabbi Yaakov Levado (meaning Jacob Alone), for Tikkun magazine in 1993 and then in 1999 came out...

    Professor David Myers showed his true colors in his reply to StandWithUs when he wrote that the "Palestinians" are not entirely to blame for the conflict (Letters, Feb. 28). He reminds me of the familiar grade-school educator who never noticed bullying, but always...

  • Was Hitler Gay?

    By Mike Levy

    November 15, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    With more than 100,000 books and scholarly articles over the last 50 years, you might think we know all we need to know about Adolph Hitler. At least, everything relevant.

    For instance, if Hitler had been a homosexual -- and many of his associates knew it and remarked about it in...

    Marvin Himlin believes with all his heart that the Boy Scouts of America and the United States Supreme Court did right by keeping avowed homosexuals from leadership positions in the Scouts. "Young kids coming into their sexuality are too impressionable, and I don't think kids need...

  • Rabbi, I’m gay

    By Julie G Fax

    May 20, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Rabbi Steven Greenberg usually kept quiet through the gay jokes. After all, he had been in the closet in the Orthodox community for 20 years, so he was used to smiling through the ridicule, through tirades about same-sex marriage.

    But not that day last year around the Shavuot table....

    They are your brother, your cousin, your lawyer, your best friend, or possibly yourself. Yet, while there are as many gays, lesbians and bisexuals in the Jewish community as in any other, they often feel like outcasts in their own faith, afraid that they can't be open about their...
