Lady Gaga did something incredibly brave yesterday to comfort LGBT homeless youth. The pop star revealed on the Today Show that she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, nearly two years after she confessed about being raped at the age of 19. It takes a lot of courage to break the silence that is surrounded around mental illness, especially one that stems from trauma. Despite the fear of shame, Gaga revealed her deepest secret. “I suffer from a mental illness — I suffer from PTSD. I’ve never told...
The death toll has risen to 36 at the Oakland warehouse-turned-art-space, Ghost Ship, in what was one of the deadliest building fires in the city's history.

Here's how you can help the victims of the Oakland fire, and the surrounding community: 1. The Fire Relief Fund for Victims of Ghost Ship Oakland Fire – This YouCaring.com fundraiser...

The ascension of Donald Trump to the presidency could have devastating effects: on the economy, on civil rights, on the environment, on foreign relations, on — and this is not hyperbole, given his blase attitude towards nuclear missiles — life as we know it. We need him to not be president, period; or, if president, to remove him from office as soon as possible, whether through impeachment or resignation. That is the prime directive. Here’s how: I: Don’t feed the trolls — even the famous ones. Vice President-Elect and...

Earlier this week, a video speculating that Barron Trump has autism went viral on YouTube. Many people, including comedian and actor Rosie O’Donnell, have joined the conversation. I am by no means a fan of Donald Trump or his political agenda, but it is absolutely inappropriate to speculate about whether or not his 10-year-old child is on the autism spectrum. The YouTube video was made by James Hunter, who is autistic himself, and came from a place of empathy for Barron and a desire for public...
This holiday season, instead of an American Girl doll, consider buying the young girls (and boys!) in your life a diverse doll created specifically to boost self-esteem. Dr. Lisa Williams created the Positively Perfect doll company to offer dolls that represented multicultural children like hers, and that reflected their beauty. Williams said that she launched the company to, "Encourage dreams, promote intelligence, challenge perceptions, and open [children's] hearts to all types of beauty." In order to reach a diverse crowd the dolls are available with all...
  A popular clickbait caption last week read, “Trump Says He Is ‘Fine’ With Same-Sex Marriage.” Each article used this spin in their headlines discussing Trump’s recent 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl. It wasn’t shocking to view a lackluster message to his bigoted followers, or a suggestion to reverse Roe v. Wade. The interview aired during the same span of time where he appointed his Chief of Staff, Steve Bannon, ringleader of the alt-right. Then there’s his vice president who believes gays can be electrocuted...
