New Additions: Proof That Families Come in Every Shape and Size

Just when you think you have reached the end of the internet, a whole new batch of blogs for the VillageQ directory pops up! I love seeing the snippets of people’s lives. Whether I visit once or keep going back, our growing repository of blogs is proof that families come […]

Getting Bi

So what do you do when you’re at Pride, and the people at the next organization’s table are also your neighbors* — the neighbors that abuse their dogs? What if they’re the sole souls at the “Republicans for Equality” table? What if your four-year-old won’t stop playing with their kids, […]

We’re here, and we’re … messy

Today, September 23, is Bi Visibility Day. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m not really one for days, weeks, months, parades, or whatever it is that simply celebrates a part of what one naturally is. In fact, until Saturday, I hadn’t even heard of Bi Visibility Day. (Apparently it’s […]

A bit of a crush

Okay. I admit it.  I have a bit of a crush (and, no, VillageQ is not talking about our collective crush on Hart again).  Actually, at times, this new crush has felt like a bit of an obsession. Hasn’t that happened to you to? A time when you think you […]

More Blogs. More Love. Bigger Village.

One of the reasons I love VillageQ is that I do believe that it takes a village to raise a child.  In part, I believe this because my two-year-old has more energy than anyone ever.  No. Really.  And in part, I believe this because while everyone takes their own path […]

Do You See a Fence?

We are taught to think in binary.  Either/ Or.  Check the box.  Black or white?  Male or female?  Old or young?  Single or Married?  Parent or Childless?  Of course, these binary relationships don’t encompass everything or everyone, but we, as a society, try so hard to force people into this […]

Gay Marriage Does Affect My Heterosexual Marriage

Caught in the Middle

I do not believe that being bisexual is just a failure to admit that I am gay. But I have been told it is. I do not believe that being bisexual is simply experimenting until I find the right man to settle down with. But I have been told it […]
