Odell Beckham Jr. not bothered by people speculating he is gay
GQ: There was a period of time when a lot of gossip sites — specifically black gossip sites — would constantly say that you were closeted. They’d call you “excited” in a hot-tub photo with your teammates or simply just say you’re gay. How’d that make you feel?
Beckham: I’ve never had an opportunity to talk about this. Honestly wasn’t offended. I’ve never once had no problem with anybody who has their own personal life that they live. I have friends who are gay. It was almost more funny to me. I almost messed with them even more. It’s like when someone gives me an ultimatum, I’m usually always going to go to the opposite way of what you want me to go. So when they would say that, I would almost mess with them even more. I have no problem with anyone’s sexual orientation.

LGBT+ People Are Paid 16% Less Than Their Straight Colleagues, A New YouGov Survey Reveals
Getting your head around your working environment is a tricky business. It takes a long time to adjust to a new workplace. Sometimes you might never actually settle, or you might feel like you are being treated unfairly. Say for example, being paid less than a colleague in the same role? With the only discerning factor between the two of you being that you're a member of the LGBTQ community and they're not. Well guys, it's 2019 and yet this is still a huge issue. As a matter of fact, recent research claims that LGBT+ people are paid 16 percent less annually than their straight peers
The research was commissioned by social media giant LinkedIn and undertaken by YouGov. The results were sent over to Bustle in a press release. As a part of the research for the study, the team surveyed 4,000 UK workers. The workers surveyed identified themselves as being "straight," "gay," "bisexual," or "other." The main take away from this research is that there appears to be a £6,703 (16%) discrepancy in income between LGBT+ workers and their straight colleagues.

A 17-year-old boy was hospitalised after defending his friend from a group of anti-LGBTQ thugs.
Jack Roberts – from Thrybergh in Rotterdam – was with his girlfriend and four others when a group of ten men started launching homophobic remarks at them. After he gained their attention, Jack was punched, kicked and stamped on.
One of the attackers reportedly used a knuckle duster, which left Jack with several marks on his body and face. He was later rushed to hospital and his family were alerted by the police.

Jack’s mother, Jodie, uploaded photos of his injuries on Facebook, alongside the caption: “To the absolute bastards who jumped our boy last night, I bet your parents are so proud of you! Jack wouldn’t hurt anyone.”
She later revealed that Jack had only known the boy the abuse was directed at for about two hours, but he defended him because he knows “right from wrong”, adding: “I am so proud of him for trying to protect someone else.”

Ecuador's highest court legalizes same-sex marriage
Ecuador's highest court has ruled to recognize same-sex marriage, marking a watershed moment for LGBTQ rights in the Catholic-majority country.
Judges on Quito's constitutional court ruled five-to-four on Wednesday to overhaul the country's laws, arguing that its current marriage legislation was discriminatory and unconstitutional, and that same-sex couples should be allowed equal rights.
The four dissenting judges said that changes to the Ecuadorean constitution should be decided and approved by the government and not the court.
Ecuador's National Assembly will still be required to officially change the laws that define the institution of marriage. Constitutional lawyer Salim Zaidán told CNN, however, that Wednesday's verdict was binding and that same-sex couples would be able to marry as soon as the constitutional court notifies local government offices of their decision. The court has 10 days to do so.
