ELECTION RANT

I feel the election and our voting system is rigged. The two candidates Hillary and Trump are the worst choices ever for this election. It’s like they are forcing me to pick out of the two who are both evil and will probably kill half of us off. I feel like honestly they all are working together. They all hang out in real life. I mean Trump plays golf with Bill Clinton for god’s sake! Like they all sit around and say “let’s play a game with the poor people!”. I feel like the cool kids in this world are… Keep Reading

Belarus leads group of about 17 nations to block LGBT rights in U.N. cities plan: sources

By Paola Totaro LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A group of up to 17 countries led by Belarus has blocked a plan to include the rights of gay, lesbian and transgender communities in a new urban strategy drawn up by the United Nations, according to sources close to negotiations. Canada, backed by the European Union, the United States and Mexico, had pushed for including the recognition of LGBT people and an acknowledgment of homophobia in a key policy paper to be finalised at a major UN conference in Ecuador next week. The UN’s ‘New Urban Agenda’ is a non-binding agreement… Keep Reading

The 5 Worst States for LGBT People

If you pay attention to the news, it’s hard not to get swept up in the feeling that things are getting better for America’s LGBT citizens. However, after riding a wave of momentum in the courts this year, marriage equality hit a new roadblock in November, when the Sixth Circuit Court upheld bans in Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee. The decision is likely to force a ruling from the Supreme Court, a body that’s up until now been "leading from behind" on this issue. It’s also a reflection of the broader inequalities that still exist for LGBT people in today’s America,… Keep Reading

Gay rights around the world: the best and worst countries for equality

We have a US president who supports gay marriage, and now a pope who, if not exactly signing up to equality for all, is at least starting to talk in language less inflammatory than his predecessor. "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?" he told an assembled group of journalists on the papal plane back from his tour of Brazil. Then he went on to criticise the gay "lobby" and said he wasn’t going to break with the catechism that said "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered". Still, for a… Keep Reading

Presumably gay-free website poses dumb questions we hate being asked

Are there queers who work at Vice? We mean, other than Khalid El Khatib, an out gay man who skillfully wrote a worthy article that was poorly headlined, “Gay People Tell Us the Questions They Absolutely Hate Being Asked.” “Us?” “They?” That kind of phrasing puts Vice in the role of a modern-day National Geographic, dedicated to serving straight readers who are curious about “those LGBTQ folk we keep hearing about.” It’s like that well-meaning but insulting straight friend we all have, who insists on introducing us as their “gay friend,” their “lesbian roomate,” their “buddy who’s bi,” or “that transgender person I was telling y’all… Keep Reading
