It’s time to set your DVRs, folks! Or, if you are woefully challenged in the electronics department like I am, get ready to push “record” on your dinosaur of a VCR. The season finale of the hit series, The Dance Scene will air on E! on May 29th at 10:30/9:30c. The episode will feature The Trevor Project, an organization dedicated to ending suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including a nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone. The Trevor Project’s goal is to create a future where the possibilities, opportunities, and dreams are the same for all youth, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Laurieann Gibson, the star of The Dance Scene—and a choreographer whose clients include Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, P. Diddy, Nicki Minaj, and Alicia Keyes—is passionate about the work of The Trevor Project. In the May 29th season finale, Laurieann and her team of dancers are asked to perform at a fundraiser for The Trevor Project. This performance hits particularly close to home for one of her lead dancers, who recently lost a cousin to suicide.
Please check out the wonderful work of The Trevor Project. Support LGBTQ youth. And tune in to The Dance Scene on May 29th. I’ll be shaking my booty along with Laurieann (in the privacy of my own living room with the shades drawn, of course, so as not to frighten the neighbors). Will you join me?

However, all things are possible if you set your mind to them. Those that prioritize their fitness nearly...
With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
The same can be said of other...
