Separate and not equal: Why Black Gay Pride hurts me 

 

In a society that has historically valued white above all other human colors, we the black people need our own advocates and forums of recognition, whether they be in the form of individuals, organizations, award ceremonies, TV, or movies. As a black man, I get it. That doesn’t mean I have to always like it.

The “black” make-up movement I love least right now is one currently playing out from sea to shining sea (in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, among other U.S. cities) and in London: Black Gay Pride. Again, as a black man, I get it. That doesn’t mean I have to like it.

Black Gay Pride is a positive celebration, but it’s also a sobering reminder that, in many ways, the LGBTQ community is no more accepting than the straight community. It’s a world where activists preach diversity and acceptance, but one in which white, masculine, and young are seen as superior to any of the alternatives.

Black Gay Pride serves as a reality check that I might never be just a gay man or just a black man. For now and for the foreseeable future, I’ll always be a “gay black man.” I’ll have to wear at least one “X” everywhere, whether I am in an exclusively black crowd or an exclusively gay one, signifying that I don’t completely belong to either.

A new study found a link between the number of racist tweets and real-life hate crimes in 100 US cities 

 

A recent study has found a connection in 100 US cities between the number of real-life racially motivated hate crimes and the amount of racist messages posted on Twitter.

Researchers at NYU analyzed more than half a billion tweets out of 100 cities across the US — from major metropolises to rural towns — between 2011 and 2016. They found that the amount of tweets containing targeted racism out of many cities correlated with the number of racially motivated hate crimes that were reported in those same areas.

"I think there's a sentiment in the targeted tweets that is likely related to fostering an environment for these crimes," researcher Rumi Chunara told Motherboard. "Meanwhile, having productive conversation might actually improve culture and outcomes."

WICCAN PROFESSOR AT CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY TOLD SHE "MIGHT NOT WANT TO BE SO OVERT ABOUT BEING A WITCH" 

 

A college professor in western New York is suing the Catholic university she woks for, claiming the school discriminated against her because she is a Wiccan.

In a suit filed last month, Pauline Hoffman, a journalism professor at St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, New York, claims administrators at the 161-year-old Franciscan college pressured her to resign as dean of the communications school because they had a problem with her religion. Hoffman, 49, also alleged St. Bonaventure denied her a promotion to provost, the college's highest academic post.

She's seeking the reinstatement of her job, as well as lost wages, reimbursement of medical costs for therapy, and an unspecified amount in damages for pain and suffering.

72 Philadelphia Police Officers Placed On Desk Duty Over Offensive Social Media Posts 

 

The Philadelphia Police Department has pulled 72 officers off their regular duties as authorities investigate inflammatory social media posts revealed in a database that found thousands of offensive postings by current and former officers, the city's police commissioner said Wednesday.

Police officials in Philadelphia are describing the action as the largest removal of officers from the street in recent memory.

"We are equally as disgusted by many of the posts that you saw and in many cases, the rest of the nation saw," said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross.

It is the latest fallout since the advocacy group The Plain View Project earlier this month released thousands of Facebook posts and comments by current and former police officers that range from racist memes, to posts celebrating violence and messages containing Islamophobic themes, among other offensive material.

Since the data dump, internal affairs officials in police departments including Phoenix, St. Louis and Dallas are probing whether the distasteful and sometimes violent material should warrant disciplinary action or terminations.

Ex-chauffeur claims racism and sexual harassment by mom, daughter: suit 

 

A wealthy mother and daughter living in “Grey Gardens”-like squalor subjected their personal assistant to racist slurs and sexual harassment, according to a new Westchester County lawsuit.

Shamel Thompson says he was paid $1,750 a week to chauffeur around the 28-year-old daughter, Becky Stein, and do simple housework at her and her mother’s $4 million White Plains home, which was “permeated with junk,” according to court papers.

But it turned into the job from hell, with Becky spewing the N-word at him and demanding that he wipe feces from her genitals, the suit says.

HIV criminalization is happening in 72 countries 

 

HIV criminalization continues: a global review has found that HIV-related arrests, investigations, prosecutions and convictions have ever occurred in at least 72 countries, with recent cases occurring in 49 countries, including 14 in which the law appeared to be applied for the first time.

The HIV Justice Network’s review concerns cases in which either the criminal or similar law is applied to people living with HIV based on HIV-positive status. Either via HIV-specific criminal statutes (29 countries), general criminal or similar laws (37 countries), or both (6 countries). Such laws typically criminalize non-disclosure of HIV status to a sexual partner, potential or perceived exposure to HIV, or transmission of HIV.

HIV criminalization ‘is a pervasive illustration of how state-sponsored stigma and discrimination works against a marginalized group of people with immutable characteristics,’ says HIV Justice Network.

Chanel Scurlock Is the Fifth Black Trans Woman Killed in the Last Month 

 

The body of 23-year-old Chanel Scurlock was found in a field in Lumberton, North Carolina, just after midnight on Wednesday. She is at least the ninth Black trans woman killed in the U.S. in 2019, and the fifth killed in the past month, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

Police found Scurlock, who lived in Lumber Bridge, N.C., with fatal gunshot wounds after responding to reports of gunfire in the area. They have yet to identify a suspect, though Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins told The Robesonian, a local paper, that police have "great leads.

Anti-LGBTQ Sentiment Is Rising Around the World 

 

If only the greatest problem facing the LGBTQ community today were that two gay rats couldn’t get married in Alabama. For those not following the world of children’s television with great enthusiasm, the Alabama affiliate of PBS chose not to broadcast an episode of the children’s program Arthur in which Mr. Ratburn marries his longtime male friend Patrick, an aardvark chocolatier. Some people have complained that they would have difficulties explaining the content of such an episode to their children.

I agree—it could be distressing to have to explain to a child that rats are not sophisticated enough to have weddings, let alone become chocolatiers. Explaining that same-sex couples get married, however, should be a breeze. It happens every day. If your child does not understand what a wedding is, you can show them the end of nearly any Disney movie.

But the public pushback on a seemingly harmless episode of Arthur is just one instance of the discomfort that many people still feel with LGBTQ people being considered equal under law. Very recently, Trump’s Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed a rule that would allow housing that receives federal funds—such as homeless shelters—to discriminate against transgender individuals.

Ohio City Backs Down After Catholic School Files Lawsuit Over Religious Rights 

 

The city of South Euclid, Ohio has backed down after a Catholic school filed a lawsuit challenging the city's anti-discrimination law on the grounds that it infringed on its religious freedom.

The city announced earlier this week it would not apply the law to the Catholic school after refusing for months to say whether the statute would require the school to operate against its religious beliefs, according to an Alliance Defending Freedom news release.

The Lyceum sued the city in April, arguing the law would violate its religious rights by raising the prospect of penalties for its beliefs about marriage and gender identity. The school suggested its admissions and employment policies could place it at risk under the ordinance.

The school upholds the Catholic beliefs that marriage is between a man and woman, sex should be reserved for marriage, and a person's gender is determined at birth. Students and faculty are expected to abide by these beliefs, and students who disagree with the teachings can be denied admission or expelled.

Kenya's Judges Uphold Laws That Criminalize Gay Sex 

 

Kenya's High Court has chosen to uphold colonial-era laws that criminalize gay sex, dashing the hopes of activists who believed the judges would overturn sections of the penal code as unconstitutional and inspire a sea change across the continent.

Three judges said Friday that the laws in question did not target the LGBTQ community. They were not convinced that people's basic rights had been violated, they said.

"We are not persuaded by the petitioners that the offenses against them are overboard," one of the judges said, according local media.

The case stems from to a petition filed in 2016 by activist Eric Gitari, with the support of organizations serving LGBTQ Kenyans. They argued that two sections of Kenya's penal code violated people's rights: Article 162 penalizes "carnal knowledge ... against the order of nature" with up to 14 years in prison, and Article 165 castigates "indecent practices between males" with the possibility of five years' imprisonment.

Gay couple film themselves being turned away from restaurant in Mexico 

 

A gay couple in Mexico captured footage of a restaurant owner refusing them service.

Rubén Veliz, 29, and Edwin Contreras, 27, had gone to dine at Pozole Y Tacos (#1200-B Coloniza Colinas de San Jerónimo), Monterrey, Nuevo León, at around 5pm on Sunday (28 April). Veliz tells Gay Star News he has visited the establishment several times previously.

However, on this occasion, on seeing the men holding hands, the restaurant’s owner refused to serve them.

He allegedly screamed at them over holding hands, calling it ‘bullshit’, and insisting he had every right to refuse service.
