We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

The American Family Association is now referring to LGBT people as “g-ys” and same-sex relationships as “h-mos-xuality,” as if these words were expletives, reports Political Research Associates, a nonprofit that tracks the Right. (Or should that be “the R-ght”?)Meanwhile, the California Supreme Court overturned the state’s ban on marriage equality today. That’s the good news.The bad? A coalition of socially conservative groups is trying to amend the California constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The measure could appear on the November ballot.The secretary of state is expected to rule by the end of June whether the conservative groups have gathered enough signatures to bring the measure to a statewide referendum vote, reports The Advocate.

Become a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Many of you expressed interest in magazine subscriptions, gift subscriptions, tote bags, events and books —and we’ve added all of those. Some of you said that cost was an issue, so we’ve kept our starting tier at just $5 a month—less than 17 cents a day.

Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with unique rewards at each level, for you to choose from. Check out the new Sustainer program.
