Since November, 2008, just days after Prop 8 passed, The New Civil Rights Movement has covered many of the issues impacting the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, from marriage equality to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” from politics in general to the rise of the radical Right. And in positive response to problems that directly harm our community, we created “The Great Nationwide Kiss-In,” and “Out October.” In short, we’ve become what we set out to be: “A journal of news and opinion on gay rights and marriage equality.” And, we believe, so much more.
Our in-depth reporting on anti-gay bullying teen suicides motivated our readers — many of whom were personally affected by anti-gay bullying — to share their coming out stories in print. From local politics to international LGBTQ crises, we’ve worked hard to bring our readers important stories that affect the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, and everyone interested in a better world that embraces full equality for all.
Where others give you clips, quotes, and quips, The New Civil Rights Movement gives you context. Perhaps because of that approach, we’ve earned a good-sized audience of loyal, intelligent, challenging readers, and have become possibly the fastest-growing major LGBT-focused political site online.
Today, The New Civil Rights Movement is a well-read and well-respected voice on politics and civil rights, offering breaking news well before the mainstream media, and insight and analysis you can find nowhere else. We go beyond the media’s cookie-cutter approach, and the blogosphere’s sensationalism, often interviewing those responsible for making the headlines, taking the time to give you the bigger picture.
