1.8 million LGBTQ youth in America “seriously consider” suicide each year 

 

New research has revealed worrying statistics about mental health among LGBTQ youth.

The new report from The Trevor Project, an American charity that focuses on suicide prevention for young LGBTQ people, has estimated that 1,892,000 LGBTQ people aged 13-24 in the US have “seriously considered” suicide in the past year.

Of that total number, the charity estimate that 1,199,000 LGBTQ youth aged 13-18 have seriously considered suicide in the past year, while 693,000 LGBTQ youth aged 19-24 have seriously considered suicide in the past year.

The charity also found that LGBTQ youth with at least one accepting parent were 40% less likely to report a suicide attempt int the past year.

“Suicide is an ongoing public health crisis for young people in the U.S., especially among LGBTQ youth,” said Amit Paley, the CEO and executive director of The Trevor Project.

“Better understanding the mental health experiences of LGBTQ young people is a major step in addressing their significantly higher risk for attempting suicide. Together, we can ensure that LGBTQ young people know their lives have value, and that they are heard, loved, and never alone.”

I’m Gay. So Why Don’t I Belong to ‘Gay Culture?’ 

 

I'm a gay transgender man, though I tend to keep the "transgender" part under wraps most of the time. I also live in a fairly small and conservative town. This makes talking about my childhood awkward unless I just say "my parents grew up in the city so we didn't really do a lot of outdoorsy stuff.” It's true without being too detailed, so that response is usually enough to get some pressure off me.

Anyway, I don't really have much interest in certain things considered part of "gay culture.” I watch Drag Race and follow some past contestants on social media. I feel a certain glee when characters in fiction I already like turn out to be LGBTQ. And while I'm not too familiar with the history of the Pride movement, I would love to learn more about it.

But that's about the extent of it. I simply cannot even pretend I like Katy Perry or Will & Grace. I've tried watching Sex and the City only to wonder if I'm supposed to like any of the characters. I'm basically someone who's been described as "Judas Priest gay.” Is there something I'm missing that's supposed to help me enjoy these things? Does this sound like a matter of preferring documentaries over other genres? Or is this just not as uncommon as I probably think?

Pornhub Wants to Return Tumblr to its “Former Glory” 

 

After Tumblr banned all adult content in December, basically signing it’s own death certificate, Pornhub has reportedly said that the website is interested in restoring the microblogging service to its former glory.

Tumblr’s announcement that it would implement a ban against pornography and any possibly suggestive content created wall to wall news. Tumblr users said that the decision would decimate communities, particularly queer ones, that were sometimes meant for pleasure, other times posed as representation for minorities who didn’t see themself in mainstream pornography, and other times served as sex educators in a world where sex education is woefully lacking. Those users were right. Communities and some 150 million users disappeared as a result of the ban.

There has been no perfect replacement for the service as of yet. And if Pornhub has its way, maybe there doesn’t need to be.

How I started living for myself and not just for weekends on the gay scene 

 

When you’re surrounded by people, you can still be isolated.

You might be in a busy bar, beer in hand, but it can feel like the loneliest place in the world.

When Damian and I started our podcast MenTalkHealth, we didn’t have a clear intent on what we wanted to do.

What came out of it was the older LGBTI people in Brighton came to us and said it was amazing. These were people that weren’t going out but they still wanted to listen to gay voices.

The majority of gay men I know are always busy, but they often don’t make any actual connections. Grindr and Scruff aren’t real. You might meet people going out to bars, with all its drinking and drugs, but you won’t find real connections there.

The LGBTQ community can’t win our rights until we start making sure others can too 

 

LGBTQ Nation focuses primarily on news and issues relevant to LGBTQ communities. Some of the writers, including myself, have taken criticism for writing articles “that don’t have anything to do with LGBTQ people,” as if we constitute a bone fide monolithic community of people.

We recognize, though, that we represent many voices in many varied communities. This poses exciting challenges as well as opportunities to further understanding between these communities.

Each person is composed of multiple identities that interconnect. Depending on time and location, some of these identities may seem more or less important to the individuals. Most people in most societies have some identities accorded more social privileges, while simultaneously having some accorded less privileges.

This History of Gay Bars Is Also a Tale of LGBTQ Liberation 

 

The new documentary San Diego's Gay Bar History surveys some of the 135 bars that have existed in the city and chronicles the various aspects of the LGBTQ community that have grown within them. Directed and produced by Paul Detwiler, the film has been released on the city's PBS station, KPBS.

The earliest example of a gay bar in San Diego came in the 1957, when straight ally Lou Arko bought the popular lunch club of the 1930's, the Brass Rail, and extended it into a meeting spot for gay people at night.

The post-World War II era heralded the opening of many more bars, catering to the independent men and women who had moved to the bustling port city for military jobs. During this time, when homosexuality was criminalized and it was even against the law for two men to dance together, the bars provided a meeting place for LGBTQ people who were otherwise isolated.

Barack Obama Says People Confident in Their Sexuality 'Don’t Need 8 Women Around You Twerking' 

 

On Tuesday, ex-president Barack Obama and Stephen Curry combined their powers for a town hall event that urged youngsters from minority backgrounds to develop confidence without feeling compelled to build self-worth based on chasing women and money.

The event unfolded in Oakland, and it also marked the fifth anniversary of Obama's My Brother’s Keeper Alliance. Both Curry and the former president talked about challenges they faced in their formative years, while also speaking about broader ranging topics, such as hip-hop, policing in minority communities, discipline in schools, male role models, and manhood.

Obama addressed societal pressures that young people face to act a certain way because of hip hop's frequent portrayal of what it means to be successful. The President's remarks on that subject were described as one of the event's "more humorous moments," as he blended making his point with some shade.

"We live in a culture where our worth is measured by how much money we have and how famous we are," Obama said to the capacity crowd made up of youth flown to the Bay from throughout the country. "I will tell you, at the end of the day, the thing that will give you confidence is not that. I know a lot of rich people that are all messed up."

‘It Is Not a Closet. It Is a Cage.’ Gay Catholic Priests Speak Out 

 

Gregory Greiten was 17 years old when the priests organized the game. It was 1982 and he was on a retreat with his classmates from St. Lawrence, a Roman Catholic seminary for teenage boys training to become priests. Leaders asked each boy to rank which he would rather be: burned over 90 percent of his body, paraplegic, or gay.

Each chose to be scorched or paralyzed. Not one uttered the word “gay.” They called the game the Game of Life.

The lesson stuck. Seven years later, he climbed up into his seminary dorm window and dangled one leg over the edge. “I really am gay,” Father Greiten, now a priest near Milwaukee, remembered telling himself for the first time. “It was like a death sentence.”

The closet of the Roman Catholic Church hinges on an impossible contradiction. For years, church leaders have driven gay congregants away in shame and insisted that “homosexual tendencies” are “disordered.” And yet, thousands of the church’s priests are gay.

Justine Skye: I Didn't Name My Abuser Because Rap Culture Doesn't Care 

 

Singer Justine Skye's harrowing new music video opens with a disclaimer that it's "based on true events." The video for "Build" is a poignant yet painful look a young woman's relationship with a man who physically and mentally abused her, and ends with a black screen and the italicized words: "United in the fight against domestic violence."

In a Monday interview with The Breakfast Club, Skye explains why she elected to keep her alleged abuser’s identity private, though fans and sleuths have taken a look at her social media activity and speculate that "Build" is about rapper Check Wes, who recently appeared on Saturday Night Live.

This Community Is Tearing Itself Apart Over Non-Christians Owning  

 

For over a century the “Chautauqua on Lake Michigan,” perched on a hillside overlooking a particularly scenic expanse of coastline, has served as a local cultural center and sacred retreat for families like Sheaffer’s, who mostly have been visiting for generations. But for the past decade idyllic, serene Bay View has been embroiled in a bitter internal conflict that’s sharply divided the tight-knit community and—because of its echoes of the ugly housing discrimination fights of past decades—resonated far beyond, tapping a nerve in the country’s culture wars and the broader debate about the role of religion in American life. The core of this dispute is that while anyone is welcome to visit Bay View or participate in its events—and many outsiders do—for decades only Christians have been allowed to actually own cottages and act as voting community members. In early August, after years of escalating tension, members voted to finally amend the bylaws to allow non-Christians to own property, but the dispute remains ongoing. A group of plaintiffs, arguing the new provisions still amount to religious discrimination, are forging ahead with a federal lawsuit against the Bay View Association.

White supremacist, anti-immigrant posters pop up in Queens 

 

As New York City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer headed out for a jog in Queens last Sunday, something out of the ordinary quickly caught his eye: an anti-immigrant poster geared toward anyone who might be sympathetic to white nationalist messaging.

The text wasn’t subtle. Addressed to “all citizens of the United States of America,” it read: “It is your civic duty to report any and all illegal aliens to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). They have broken the law.” There, underneath the text, was a phone number for ICE. “Have a nice day,” the poster closed.

White New York City Teacher Who Stepped On Black Students' Backs During Slavery Lessons Wants To Sue Over Reverse Racism 

 

In peak Caucasity, a white Bronx social studies teacher who is facing being fired after stepping on Black students’ backs during a lesson on slavery, is now claiming that she is the real victim of racism (literally, reverse racism) and intends to file a lawsuit, which her lawyer says could be worth up to $1 billion.

According to the New York Daily News, the issue started back in February at Middle School 118, when Patricia Cummings picked out black students, told them to lie on the floor and stepped on their backs to show them what it felt like during a lesson on U.S. slavery, per the reports of multiple students and one staffer.

Now, Cummings has filed a notice of claim, filed in anticipation of a lawsuit, claiming that she is the real victim here of reverse discrimination, defamation, negligence and a litany of other claims.

Cop to 11-year-old girl he Tased: “This is why there’s no grocery stores in the black community” 

 

A Cincinnati police officer has been placed on desk duty after Tasing an 11-year-old girl for alleged shoplifting and telling her “this is why there’s no grocery stores in the black community.”

Officer Kevin Brown, who is black, was investigating “several juvenile females allegedly stealing items” from a Kroger grocery store in early August when he approached the girl in the store. She reportedly ignored him and “continued to walk away, ignoring several commands to stop.”

That’s when the officer Tased the girl in the back and told her: “You know, sweetheart, this is why there’s no grocery stores in the black community.”

A man put up an electric fence near a school bus stop to keep kids off his lawn 

 

A Virginia man took "you kids get off of my lawn" to new levels by putting up an electric fence near a spot where students wait for the school bus.

Bryan Tucker said he erected the fence Tuesday because he had trouble last year with kids trespassing and littering on his property.
"They don't respect other peoples' land," Tucker told CNN affiliate WTVR. "I pick up trash every day."
He said the "No Trespassing" signs he has posted on his property for years haven't helped.
