To celebrate our state’s LGBT population, Arizona Opera will be hosting an LGBT night in association with our Saturday night performances of Eugene Onegin in both Tucson and Phoenix. The hauntingly tragic opera was composed by Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky, whom many music historians believe ended his life over his inner turmoil over his sexuality. Chris Carr, Studio Artist in the Marion Roose Pullin Opera Studio, stars in the title role with Corrine Winters as Tatiana and Zach Borichevsky as Lenski. Evening includes 20% off tickets to the performance and a post-show happy hour at Mother Bunch Brewing with General Director Ryan Taylor and friends. Use promo code LGBTPHX when ordering online or over the phone. Read more »

Phoenix leaders say gay-marriage ruling good for business

Phoenix leaders say gay-marriage ruling good for business

Opponents of gay marriage, including Gov.Jan Brewer and Catholic bishops, criticized the judge's decision. Brewer said that with its decision, the court was eroding the people's power and overstepping its bounds. Brewer noted that Arizona voters in 2008 approved a state constitutional amendment to define marriage as a union of one man and one woman.

We asked: What impact do you think the ruling legalizing same-sex marriage will have in Phoenix? Please indicate whether you support or oppose the decision. Read more »

Ariz. businesses celebrate gay marriage with discounts, deals

Businesses in Arizona seized on the lift of the gay-marriage ban as a marketing opportunity, offering discounts to same-sex couples on everything from bar tabs to hair stylings to hotel stays.

Social-media accounts began humming with electronic deals for gay couples minutes after Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne announced he would not appeal a U.S. District Court decision striking down the state's ban.

Phoenix's once controversial anti-bias law has little impact

Phoenix's once controversial anti-bias law has little impact

Few Phoenix City Council meetings have matched the drama and vitriol that filled the Orpheum Theatre more than a year ago as leaders approved an anti-discrimination ordinance with broad civil-rights protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender residents.

At the time, opponents and supporters of the law spoke at length about its potentially sweeping consequences. There were yelling and tears, and the ideological divide grew even wider.

Conservative groups and religious traditionalists raised fears that the measure could lead to a tsunami of lawsuits against small businesses or allow predatory men to enter women's bathrooms under the guise that they are transgender. Read more »
