Columns by Dr. Minor

Since 1998, Bob Minor has written a unique, popular, and highly acclaimed monthly column entitled "Minor Details," which discusses a wide variety of issues (political, social, cultural, personal, relationships) related to LGBT people and their communities and especially how we ourselves respond to the issues.

"Minor Details" appears initially since November 1998 in Liberty Press (the long-standing LGBT magazine for the state of Kansas) and also in LGBT Today (a national LGBT newsmagazine) and on MSNBC's Newsvine (ended publication in 2017). It is reprinted around the nation on-line and in other publications such as Iowa's Accessline , Northern Arizona's One of Us, New Mexico's Pride & Equality and national webmagizines Whosoever and Menstuff.

Beginning in July 2004, Dr. Minor began writing a column entitled "Living Out Here" for the new Camp, a monthly newsmagazine for Kansas City which he has since discontinued.

In June 2008 he began a new column on dating, relationships, and romance for Baby Boomers for the popular website:
