Trump appointee who raged against ‘homo-empire’ thinks drag queens are part of a ‘Satanic agenda of sexual perversion’
Employees at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have raised concerns over the appointment of an official with a deeply homophobic record.
Merritt Corrigan was recently appointed by Trump as deputy White House liaison at USAID despite her troubling record on LGBT+ issues.
Her history of homophobic comments initially surfaced earlier this month, when it was revealed she had attacked the US “homo-empire” and “tyrannical LGBT agenda”.
More messages have now been surfaced by CNN’s KFile, which reveal even more extreme views.

Gareth Thomas, one of Britain’s most powerful gay men, says even he still gets called a f*g
A decade after he first opened up to the public about his sexuality, Gareth Thomas says that he still faces homophobia.
Having retired from sport in 2011, and after a brief foray into reality television, Thomas’ second act has been his most impactful. Capitalising on his status as Britain’s most high profile out sportsperson, the Welshman has dedicated himself in recent years to fighting discrimination – but that doesn’t mean he’s exempt to being on the receiving end of it.
He’s particularly taken by his idea that there is, in essence, no difference between the openly racist “wolves” who are violent towards Black people, and the apparently liberal “foxes” who hide their venom behind gleaming, fanged smiles, but are just as big a threat. This, he thinks, remains true today for all forms of prejudice.
Puerto Rico Governor Strips Away LGBTQ+ Protections
Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vázquez signed a new civil code that removed language protecting LGBTQ+ persons last week. The action was met with outrage from experts and civil rights activists.
“Puerto Rico’s governor signed into law significant revisions to the island’s civil codes that shamefully ignore the urgent calls of local advocates to explicitly include vital, comprehensive non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ residents,” Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David said in a statement. “The government has failed to carry out its primary duty of ensuring the safety and well-being of all Puerto Ricans, including LGBTQ Puerto Ricans.”

According to the report, Poernomo commented on a thread about the first ever same-sex couple featured on the Disney Channel.
The thread’s creator asked members if they agreed with the move, and Poernomo commented: “I wish the world made a united decision where they will capture all gay people and put them on a remote island full of gays, that way straight ppl [people] will be happy and the freaks can go on and f**k themselves.”

IKEA sacked a homophobe who told co-workers gay people should be killed. Now, it’s being threatened with a lawsuit
The former IKEA employee, identified as Tomasz K, said he was fired last year after he refused to take down a homophobic comment he posted on the firm’s internal site.
“Acceptance and promotion of homosexuality and other deviations is scandalous,” he wrote, alongside several anti-gay Bible verses.
IKEA said at the time that the employee had expressed an opinion “in a way that could affect the rights and dignity of LGBT + people”.
“In addition, the employee actually used quotes from the Old Testament about death, blood in the context of what fate should meet homosexual people,” it added. “Many employees raised by this entry contacted our HR department.”

Doja Cat, who’s said f****t 15,000 times, accused of video chatting with alt-right incel group
Rapper Doja Cat has come under fire over a resurfaced 2015 song in which she appears to mock police brutality, and for allegedly video chatting with an alt-right incel group.
A 2015 song by the artist titled “Dindu Nuffin” has been spreading like wildfire across social media.
The phrase “Dindu Nuffin”, a stylised pronunciation of “didn’t do nothing”, is used by racist alt-right groups to mock Black victims of police brutality.
Religious exemptions are gutting civil rights protections, advocacy groups warn
The Trump administration's expansion of religious exemptions is undermining civil rights protections and codifying discrimination against marginalized groups — particularly LGBTQ people — according to a report released Monday by three research and advocacy groups.
Using a combination of new rules, legal interventions and newly created divisions, the departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Labor and State have all taken steps to advance "religious liberty," often at the expense of LGBTQ rights, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for American Progress and the Movement Advancement Project argue in their report.
The proposed rules — from the departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, Labor, Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, Agriculture and Education, along with the U.S. Agency for International Development — would undo several Obama-era regulations, including those that require federally funded religious organizations to inform beneficiaries about certain rights.
For example, if a homeless LGBTQ teen sought help from a faith-based provider and the provider was not accepting of the teen's sexual orientation or gender identity, the provider would no longer have to inform the teen under the new rule about alternative providers that may be more accepting.
"These rules would be harmful to LGBTQ people, women, religious minorities and others during the best of times, but they're particularly unconscionable during a public health crisis when even more people than usual are relying on social services," said Rachel Laser, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, which was not involved with Monday's report.
Jonathan Schmitz Killed A Man For Revealing A Crush On Him On TV — Where Is He Now?
Michigan man Jonathan Schmitz, then 24, was invited onto “The Jenny Jones Show” in 1995. "The Jenny Jones Show" began in 1991 as a traditional talk show where serious topics were discussed, but by 1993 it transformed into something more like "Maury" and "The Jerry Springer Show." The show's segments began ranging from paternity tests to out-of-control teens to secret crush reveals.
During the taping of this particular episode, which was entitled “Same Sex Secret Crushes,” Schmitz's acquaintance Scott Amedure, 32, revealed his crush on him while also describing details of his sexual fantasies about him. While Schmitz appeared to be a good sport about it ?— he was mostly smiling and laughing ?— he was deeply humiliated. At points, he covered his face with his hands; he also turned to Amedure and the female friend who brought him on the show and said, “You lied to me.” His father had made multiple homophobic statements in the past and Schmitz seemingly feared being perceived as gay, as the docuseries points out.

Anti-LGBTQ+ Boosie Hired Sex Worker to 'Prepare' Pre-Teens
Rapper Boosie Badazz is causing an uproar on social media after revealing he once hired a sex worker to give oral sex to his son and nephews when they were 12 and 13 years old.
“I’m training these boys right,” he said in an Instagram Live video yesterday. “Ask any of my nephews, ask any of them, ask my son. Yeah, when they was 12, 13, they got head. Yeah, that’s how it’s supposed to be. Hell yeah, I got my fucking son dick sucked.”
One in three gay men feel unsafe at home during coronavirus
Almost a third of gay and bisexual men report feeling vulnerable at home during the new coronavirus pandemic, with Brazilians particularly concerned, a global survey found on Tuesday, highlighting its wider mental health impacts.
According to research conducted by the U.S.-based gay social network Hornet for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, 30% of almost 3,500 respondents, which included transgender men, said they felt physically or emotionally unsafe in their own homes.
"Think of how it feels to be 21 years old and living with a family that is unsupportive and constantly haranguing you about marrying a woman," said Alex Garner, senior health innovation strategist at Hornet.

Little Richard Disavows the ‘Unnatural Affections’ of Homosexuality
Rock ‘n’ roll legend Little Richard, who has previously described himself as both “gay” and “omnisexual,” has a new outlook on life at 84 years old.
“Anybody come in show business, they’re going to say you’re gay. Are you straight? Are you a homosexual something? They’re going to say it. But God, Jesus, he made men, men, he made women, women, you know? And you’ve got to live the way God wants you to live.”
The “Tutti Frutti” singer, who no longer wears makeup or wigs, also spoke out against “unnatural affections.”
“You know, all these things. So much unnatural affection. So much of people just doing everything and don’t think about God. Don’t want no parts of him,” he said.
