Chicagoland native and active member of Chicago's LGBT community Tommy Holl is donning his red onesie and felt collar again this year to spread Christmas cheer as The Real Elf on the Shelf.

The creator and producer of A&E's Duck Dynasty played a gay porn star in The Fluffer, a popular independent gay movie that played at the 2001 Toronto International Film Festival.

Before the November 2012 election, same-sex couples could marry in only six states plus the District of Columbia, and the federal government, under the Defense of Marriage Act, banned recognition of gay marriages, denying more than 100,000 couples more than 1,100 rights and benefits.

Fallon Fox, the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter who came out transgender in March, said in a GQ profile that passing is everything.

Three Utah counties which had refused to abide by an order legalizing gay marriage in the state have started issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

Truth Wins Out (TWO), a non-profit advocacy group that fights anti-LGBT religious extremism, has moved its headquarters to Chicago.

Hamburger Mary's, the popular Chicago-based hamburger restaurant, with its flagship location now anchored in Andersonville, plans to open a franchise in Oak Park next summer that also will operate as a microbrewery.

Mary Mitchell is dead wrong on a number of items in her recent column, "Phil Robertson has right to his faith without condemnation" (published Dec. 23 in the Chicago Sun-Times).

After being suspended from A&E's reality show "Duck Dynasty" after making anti-gay statements in a magazine interview, Phil Robertson is returning, the cable network announced Friday.

LA Galaxy winger Robbie Rogers says coming out gay has taught him to give people a chance.
