Why has a ‘No Gays Allowed’ billboard gone up in Times Square?
A billboard that says “NO GAYS ALLOWED” was put up in Times Square in New York City.
The sign is part of a campaign by a group called Citizens for Transparency to shed light on the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a hate group that has been behind several recent legal campaigns to limit protections for LGBTQ people.
The billboard directs people to NoGays.org, a website that gives information about ADF’s agenda, which includes fighting anti-discrimination laws, supporting conversion therapy, and promoting the myth that allowing transgender people to use the appropriate restroom will lead to violence against women.
City Girls Rapper Yung Miami Explains Saying She Would 'Beat' Her Son If He Was Gay: Watch
Rapper Yung Miami, of the rap group City Girls, has made a name for herself as a controversial figure in the hip-hop world. The 24-year-old rapper made comments in 2011 about how she thought Haitians were “black ugly and cheesy” and said in 2013 that she wouldn’t want one of her sons to be gay -- both of which she later publicly apologized for.
But Miami found herself in more hot water on Tuesday (Nov. 13) after her appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, where she doubled down on her homophobic statements. Speaking with host Charlamagne Tha God, Miami was asked about her controversial tweet that said what she would do if she had a gay son. “I didn’t tweet nothing about them [the LGBTQ community],” she said. “I was just talking about my son. I just said that if I saw anything gay in my son, that I would beat him.”

However, he came out on top with his response to Trump’s conspiratorial tweet.

Hate Groups Are Using Online Games To Recruit Teens (Report)
Some extremist groups are using multiplayer games and in-game chat functions as a way to recruit new members, NPR reports.
It’s happening not only in-game, but via platforms like Discord and Reddit, as well. Some recruitment occurs during game livestreams on Twitch and YouTube, and even some harassment campaign planning occurs via these platforms.
Unicorn Riot published chat logs from Discord last year which revealed plans for the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally from white supremacists, according to NPR.
So why are the groups taking to gaming spaces for new members? According to Joan Donovan of Data and Society, a research institute, white supremacists have a history of being innovative with using online spaces for recruitment. And, Donovan says that first-person shooter games are one space to find angry young men, according to NPR.
