  • A guide to GLBT Organizations in the Valley

    Boise Pride Week is about celebrating who you are. This seeming simple idea historically has been made tough for the gay community. BW has compiled a guide to organizations aimed at educating, supporting, assisting and even entertaining the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (GLBT) community and their friends in the Treasure Valley. We tried to touch on a bit of everything-though this list is by no means exhaustive-in the hope that the information listed here will be a useful resource for our diverse community.

  • Gay Glossary

    Whether gay or straight, if you have managed to live in modern day culture without frequently hearing slang terms like gaydar, drag queen or fag hag, this short list of not-so-well-known terms about the gay community will really "kick you out of the closet." For those unwitting few, the previous three terms are included as well. No inclusions are meant to be derogatory or disparaging, but rather for educational value.

    There's no question that some judges are overstepping their bounds by legislating from the bench. Recently, we've seen judges around the country redefine the institution of marriage, overturning initiatives approved by overwhelming majorities. Courts have also attempted to eliminate the phrase "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, ban public prayer, and remove long-standing displays of the Ten Commandments from public property.

  • Rainbow Number 1

    The first rainbow painting is about love, and also the painful price that some pay for loving another. It is about how this love can survive ugliness, refusing to be occludd by hate or judgment. With steadfast care, love becomes more complex, and more beautiful, for the struggle.
