Andrew Gillum is embroiled in supposed drug overdose of alleged gay escort
Andrew Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee and Democratic candidate for Governor of Florida, is named at the center of a police report circulating online. The report names him as an involved party to a crystal meth overdose in a Miami Beach hotel on early Friday morning – and the man who had the overdose is allegedly a gay escort.
While rumors have circulated about Gillum’s sexuality before, speculation is ramping up after the alleged escort could not explain how Gillum was present.
The leaked documents show that police were called at 1 AM to handle a distress call at the Mondrian South Beach Hotel. Aldo Mejias, 56, is listed as the complainant. He was the cardholder that rented the hotel room that Travis Dyson, 30, and Gillum were in.
The report alleges that when Mejias arrived at 11 PM, Dyson and Gillum were already ‘intoxicated’ in the room, and Dyson had trouble breathing – he collapsed soon after. Mejias tried to awake Dyson, at which time he began to vomit and collapsed again.

A transgender woman seeking asylum should be released after she was sexually assaulted and harassed while being detained in an Arizona immigration facility with men for nine months, advocates said Thursday.
Alejandra Alor Reyes, who is from Mexico, is suffering from PTSD and should be released on humanitarian grounds while she awaits an appeal in her asylum case, according to several groups, including ACLU of Arizona, Trans Queer Pueblo and Detention Watch Network.
They say her case is a further indication that transgender immigrants face unsafe conditions and that none are being held with members of the gender they identify with.

Gay teen found shot to death in possible hate crime but his family says police are biased
The family of a gay teen who was killed in Louisiana is asking for the federal government to get involved because they believe he died in a hate crime.
Ja’Quarius Taylor’s mother noticed that her 17-year-old son was missing on the morning of January 12, so she called the police.
The Washington Paris Sheriff’s Office says that Taylor, who was a senior at Varnado High School, was shot to death near a lake in Washington Parish in southeastern Louisiana, and someone who was at the lake to check water levels found his body and called 911 about an hour after his mother noticed he was missing.
Now his family is speaking out and asking the federal government to get involved. In a statement released by their attorney, they said they want the FBI to help with the investigation because they believe Taylor was killed in an anti-gay, anti-black hate crime.

The Amish Keep to Themselves. And They’re Hiding a Horrifying Secret
The memories come to her in fragments. The bed creaking late at night after one of her brothers snuck into her room and pulled her to the edge of her mattress. Her underwear shoved to the side as his body hovered over hers, one of his feet still on the floor.
Her ripped dresses, the clothespins that bent apart on her apron as another brother grabbed her at dusk by the hogpen after they finished feeding the pigs. Sometimes she’d pry herself free and sprint toward the house, but “they were bigger and stronger,” she says. They usually got what they wanted.
As a child, Sadie* was carefully shielded from outside influences, never allowed to watch TV or listen to pop music or get her learner’s permit. Instead, she attended a one-room Amish schoolhouse and rode a horse and buggy to church—a life designed to be humble and disciplined and godly.

Grindr is sharing users’ sexual orientation and location data, says study
The LGBTQ dating app Grindr has been caught sharing users’ sensitive data with thousands of ad partners, reports Bloomberg. That’s according to a study from the Norwegian Consumer Council. The NCC’s report says Grindr uses Twitter’s ad subsidiary MoPub to funnel the personal information of Grindr users to ad partners.
The data includes a Grindr user’s location, age, gender, and sexual orientation, which malicious individuals or parties could then use to identify and target LGBTQ people. As a result of its findings, the NCC and European privacy advocate Max Schrems has filed no fewer than three complaints against Grindr and five ad-tech companies. Those complaints were filed with the Norwegian Data Protection Authority, and they allege Grindr’s sharing of personal data breaches the EU’s GDPR privacy rules.
