Millions celebrate LGBTQ pride in New York amid global fight for equality: organizers 

 

Millions lined the streets of New York on Sunday to wave rainbow flags, celebrate the movement toward LGBTQ equality and renew calls for action in what organizers billed as the largest gay pride celebration in history.

Event organizers and city officials said 150,000 parade marchers and up to 4 million visitors commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that triggered the modern LGBTQ movement, with corporate sponsorship and police protection that would have been unthinkable half a century ago.

Reuters could not independently verify the crowd estimate.

Country star Jake Owen claps back at anti-LGBTQ commenter 

 

Please "Believe" that Jake Owen will not allow people to diss the LGBTQ community.

He recently debuted a preview of his cover of Cher's 1998 hit "Believe" on his official Instagram account.

"Some of my closest friends and coworkers, are part of the #lgbt community and I couldn't be more happy for the progress they have made," Owen wrote in the caption. "I'm inspired by people loving people no matter who you are."

You don’t have to march at Pride to show your pride 

 

I remember being squashed between a mass of people on one side and the glass window of a sushi restaurant on the other.

I remember grabbing a handful of rainbow flags and raising them above my head.

Then, I remember hearing the names of the fallen recited and repeated by a mournful crowd. I remember the London vigil for the Pulse shooting as if it was yesterday.

The events of that weekend shook me to the core and pushed me to make a commitment I’d been putting off for a while. I pledged to become a queer activist.

Straight Oklahoma Ally Creates Anti-Bigot Pride Truck, Ends Homophobia 

 

A straight man in Oklahoma became a viral queer ally after decorating his truck in honor of Pride month. Cody Barlow used colored duct tape to create a rainbow flag on the back of his truck, writing on Facebook that he’d “found a way to show my support for pride month” with the flag and using mailbox letters to write a message: “Not all country boys are bigots. Happy Pride month.”

“This is important to me, not only because I have family and friends that are LGBTQ+, but also because countless people have dealt with hatred and judgement simply for who they are, and/or who they love, for far too long,” wrote Barlow. “Obviously doing this isn’t going to change the minds of those who are intolerant, but hopefully it can help drown out the hatred with love.”

Milwaukee County Declares Racism A Public Health Crisis 

 

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele signed a resolution Monday (May 20) stating how racism is a public health crisis and that the county plans to take action.

"Everybody has been reading and hearing about the same set of statistics in Milwaukee for decades," Abele said. "We lead in an unfortunate way the racial disparities in employment, in education, incarceration, income and even things like ... access to capital."

The resolution hopes to take actionable steps to level the playing field in Milwaukee, a playing field that finds minorities disproportionately affected.

Homophobes Attack Congressional Black Caucus Over Equality Act 

 

A right-wing group aims to spark outrage among black voters over an impending vote on the Equality Act.

Organizers for the Gone 2 Far Movement released an open letter through Christian Newswire attacking leadership from the Congressional Black Caucus.

The bizarre rant, signed by failed Congressional candidate Stephen Broden and right-wing radio host Randy Short, suggests the “Gay Equality Act” will set back minority rights.

The letter singles out Rep. Karen Bass, CBC chair, and other caucus members for refusing to “defend the real purpose of the 1964 Civil Rights Act as a scam to make 'Gay the New Black' wherein pedophiles, sodomites of all stripes, and persons of debased fetish needs are accorded protected class status akin to Blacks and women.”

The letter compares a vote for the Equality Act to the biblical story of disciple Judas Iscariot betraying Jesus Christ, though its unclear how many pieces of silver were exchanged or who will be crucified should the legislation pass.

Will Young on school protests: 'Adults push insecurities onto children' 

 

‘Adults just seem to focus on the sexual nature of LGBT and they kind of miss the point,’ British pop star Will Young has strong opinions about the people protesting LGBTI-inclusive lessons in English schools. ‘It’s really sad.’

Well, it is his job to have opinions on LGBTI matters. We started talking about the protests currently hitting headlines in the UK press while discussing his podcast Homo Sapiens. He’s the co-host with his best friend and film director Chris Sweeney.

‘I think it could be the people who are protesting it are protesting LGBT people in particular,’ Young added.

‘The problem is you get adults hoisting their insecurities onto children… But what you’re missing out on is the embracing and understanding and empathizing.

‘If you stop embracing differences in others you stop embracing it in yourself,’ he adds.

How this cuddle club for gay and bi men fights loneliness with intimacy 

 

Why do so many of us who live in cities feel lonely?

It’s a clichéd concept, really: being surrounded by people and yet feeling distant. Huge tower blocks filled with other human beings and no one makes eye-contact, no one says hello. The only touch you feel is the angry weight of another person on the tube.

Because it’s not just the big, complex feelings of emotional fulfillment or finding your soul mate that’s lacking. It’s the very fundamentals of existing as a human being. Touching another person. Looking into another’s eyes. Hugging each other.

In London, one of the biggest and loneliest cities on Earth, there’s one small club tackling this problem for gay and bisexual men.

Neighbors come together after Charleston family's pride flag is burned 
 

A family in Charleston, South Carolina, said their rainbow pride flag was torn down from the front of their house and burned in their driveway last weekend.

“We were taken aback and thought, ‘Wow, somebody must be really bothered by this to go to this end here to do this.’ But we called the police to let them know about it,” the homeowner, who lives with his wife and three young children, told NBC News.

“There's people on our street that have South Carolina flags, United States flags, different college flags, garden flags … obviously the rainbow is what attracted them to ours,” the homeowner, who asked that his name not be printed to protect his family’s safety and privacy, added. “I wouldn't be surprised if the people who did this didn't even know who we were or who lived in the home, that it was just the fact that it was a rainbow flag, and they didn't agree with that.”

LGBTQ Elders Made Our Lives Possible—Now We Must Care for Them 

 

The LGBTQ movement stands on the shoulders of giants. Fifty years ago, our LGBTQ elders shattered barriers at Stonewall. A decade later, they spoke truth to power as AIDS ravaged their chosen families. In the years before and since, they marched on Washington and are still fighting for justice today.

Now it is our time to fight for them — because all too often, LGBTQ elders are not receiving the care and support they deserve. With experts predicting that as many as 4.7 million LGBTQ older adults will be seeking care and services by the year 2030, we must act now.

That’s why the Human Rights Campaign is joining SAGE, the premier advocacy organization for LGBTQ elders, in stepping up to address this injustice by helping to ensure LGBTQ older adults will be treated with respect and dignity when choosing and receiving aging and long-term care.

Stars Help L.A. LGBT Center Open Campus for Youth and Seniors 

 

The Los Angeles LGBT Center Sunday opened the first phase of its Anita May Rosenstein Campus, a two-acre complex in Hollywood designed to serve LGBTQ youth and seniors, making it the world’s first intergenerational LGBTQ facility.

The opening was celebrated with a six-hour block party featuring celebrities including Lily Tomlin, Kathy Griffin, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, along with guided tours and musical performances by Betty Who, VINCINT, the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, and Alexandra Billings.

The campus includes 100 beds for homeless youth, a new Senior Community Center, a Youth Drop-In Center, and the Ariadne Getty Foundation Youth Academy. It will also house the organization’s headquarters, being relocated from the McDonald/Wright Building, which will be transformed entirely into a health center. The second phase of the campus, scheduled to open in mid-2020, will have 99 units of affordable housing for seniors and 25 supportive housing apartments for youth.

Queer today, gone tomorrow: the fight to save LGBT nightlife 

 

On a summer’s day in 2017, in gardens near the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London, an unusual drag show took place. A lot of work had gone into the costumes, but these were not of the kind you’d expect: there were no rhinestones or wigs. Each performer was wearing an architectural model on their head, and instead of lip-syncing, they were reading out snippets of planning and licensing documents. The models didn’t represent buildings of any great distinction, but to members of the audience they were a familiar lineup: the Black Cap, the Joiners Arms, the Glass Bar, the Lesbian and Gay Centre. They were London’s queer spaces, past and present.

The event had been organised by the architecture academics Ben Campkin and Lo Marshall as a riff on the famous 1931 Beaux Arts Ball in New York, at which attendees dressed as the Chrysler building and the Waldorf Astoria hotel. They have been analysing the changing landscape of the queer community in London since 2016, and dragged up once again in front of the press at the Whitechapel Gallery to mark the opening of Queer Spaces: London, 1980s–Today.

My child is friends with a trans kid, has a gay teacher and he doesn’t bat an eyelid. What’s wrong with the Parkfield parents? 

 

I recently used these precious column inches to support Parkfield Community School, whose “No Outsiders” programme teaching understanding of LGBT+ people and relationships had been met with protests from religious parents. Mystifyingly, my 800-word decree did not undo centuries of heteronormative prejudice and preconceptions, so here I am again, unwilling to let this go.

If anything, the protests have intensified, with 80 per cent of Parkfield’s pupils having been taken out of school by parents who are mostly from Pakistani Muslim backgrounds. Quite understandably, many people have been concerned about an “open season” being declared on a group who, even in mainstream outlets, are so often subjected to liberal doses of Islamophobic vilification and dehumanisation. I hope it will be clear that I would be every bit as robust in sticking up for Muslim folk whose way of life was being prejudged or invalidated as I am about to be for LGBT+ people.

Parents have accused the school of “promoting homosexuality”. This presents a rather skewed understanding of what the Department for Education’s relationships and sex education programmes entail, as though primary school teachers are going to act out erotic encounters between Action Man figures, rather than simply open up a conversation to allow the children to see that there is nothing to fear from people who are different.

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.

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."
