Filipino politician tries to force LGBT+ people to kiss and ‘sexy dance’ as punishment for breaching coronavirus lockdown
A Filipino politician reportedly tried to force LGBT+ people to kiss each other and perform a “sexy dance” in front of minors as a punishment for breaking a coronavirus lockdown curfew.
Christopher Bombing Punzalan, captain (elected chairman) of the Pandacaqui barangay (district), posted a series of now-deleted Facebook live videos of him confronting a group breaking the 8pm lockdown curfew.
The Gay Community’s Obsession With Status and Looks Has Huge Mental Health Costs
The queer community is one of the highest risk groups for depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. For decades, many scientists wrongly assumed that LGBTQ+ people were inherently pathological, and therefore at greater risk for mental disorder. Shortly after research based on actual surveys of LGBTQ+ people first began in the late 1990s, discrimination and stigma were revealed to be the primary detriments to LGBTQ+ mental health. Though we certainly still have a ways to go, the queer community has since gained a measure of social acceptance. Now, some LGBTQ+ mental health researchers are shifting their focus to stress that comes from within the community itself.
Men of color were more likely to perceive what we call gay community stress. Single men were more likely to experience it, as well as men who described themselves as more feminine, men with fewer socioeconomic resources, and men who didn't feel particularly attractive. We also found that younger men compared to older men were more stressed, and that bisexual men were less likely to experience this type of gay community stress.
“Space crime” allegation leads to arrest of lesbian astronaut’s ex-wife
Summer Worden outed her then-estranged wife, astronaut Anne McClain, when she accused her of illegally attempting to access her bank account from the International Space Station last year. It was dubbed the “first space crime” by the media.
But in a surprising turn of events, Worden has now been indicted and charged with making the whole thing up.
The women were involved in a bitter divorce and custody dispute when Worden made the allegation. Claiming McClain had accessed her account from a NASA computer terminal, Worden filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and NASA’s Office of Inspector General.
After an investigation, federal prosecutors allege that Worden lied about key details about when the account was opened and whether or not McClain had access to the account still.
The thugs who doused a trans woman with petrol and burned her alive will not face murder charges
The 42-year-old woman, named locally as Mira, was set upon by a gang of thugs for allegedly stealing a truck driver’s phone and wallet.
When the mob was unable to find any of the possessions she was accused of stealing, they beat her, poured two litres of gasoline on her, and burned her alive. She died in hospital a day later on Sunday.
As international human rights groups called for justice, Indonesian police declared they would not be bringing murder charges because they believe the suspects who set the fire had not burned the trans woman intentionally.
Six suspects have been identified, three of whom had been arrested. North Jakarta police chief Budhi Herdi Susianto acknowledged that one of them lit a match but said they did not mean to burn her.

The rise of domestic abuse during COVID-19 in LGBTQ relationships and how you can get help
The data I have been able to collate tells me this: that 1 in every 4 lesbians and up to half of gay men have been a victim of domestic abuse at one time in their adult lives and that this figure is nearly at 80% if you are a transgender. The Office for National Statistics collated “experimental” data that informed the reader as of 2017: 1.1 million people over 16 identified themselves as LGB (there is currently no data for those identifying as transgender) out of a UK population aged 16 or over of 52.8 million, just 2% of the population.
However, what do the figures tell us about right now for LGBTQ victims? Sadly nothing. If you were heterosexual I would be able to tell you that every domestic abuse charity in England and Wales has seen a rise in calls to their helplines and in daily visits to their websites (Refuge has recorded a 25% rise in calls and over 100% rise in daily visits to their website). I could even tell you with (disturbing) confidence that this rise has been recognised across the world, but the LGBTQ victim’s voice remains shrouded.

‘Most homophobic’ minister in Israel, who thinks all LGBT+ people are sinners, tests positive for COVID-19
According to The Times of Israel, Litzman, 71, has been accused of violating his own ministry’s guidelines on social distancing in order to continue to attend prayer services.
As well as being Israel’s health minister, he also leads the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party and witnesses said he was seen praying at the home of another member of his sect three days after indoor services were banned.
His own department’s guidelines became stricter, barring prayer services altogether, but Litzman was later seen attending a service at a synagogue near his home.

Next season of Harley Quinn will explore her romance with Poison Ivy
Supervillain / anti-hero Harley Quinn is a fan favourite in the LGBTQ community, and not least for her relationship with fellow villain Poison Ivy. And although the cartoon series on the DC Universe streaming service has hinted at their relationship, it hasn’t been explicit with it.
But in the second season, which began airing on Friday (3 April), this is set to change, with a small moment in the trailer showing Harley and Ivy briefly holding hands.
And speaking to Metro, the show’s showrunner, Patrick Schumacker has confirmed that this relationship will be explored. “It will develop more, and it’s definitely going to evolve into, I think, what a lot of people are hoping it will,” he explained.
White House official blames “radical left” on rise in anti-LGBTQ hate groups
A new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) found that the number of anti-LGBTQ hate groups in the United States has increased by 43% from 49 to 70. This came at the same time that the number of hate groups operating in the United States actually fell from 1,020 to 940.
The report said the rise could’ve been “possibly fueled by continued anti-LGBTQ sentiment and policy emanating from government officials” especially those from within the Tr*mp administration.
The report says: “Anti-LGBTQ groups have become intertwined with the Trump administration, and — after years of civil rights progress and growing acceptance among the broader American public — anti-LGBTQ sentiment within the Republican Party is rising.
“Though Trump promised during his campaign to be a ‘real friend’ to the LGBTQ community, he has fully embraced anti-LGBTQ hate groups and their agenda of dismantling federal protections and resources for LGBTQ people.”

LGBT charity tells young people to ‘hit pause’ on coming out while in lockdown with parents
The Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT), a charity that cares for the LGBT+ homeless, has warned young people to “think hard” before coming out at this time.
The advice comes as LGBT+ helplines see a surge in calls from people who are stuck self-isolating with abusive family and partners.
“If you’re a young person and you’re thinking of coming out, press pause on that until you get support,” Tim Sigsworth, AKT’s CEO, told Sky News.
He expressed concern for how families may react to their child coming out in this particularly stressful time, and warned of the dangers of being made homeless during the pandemic.

Pastor who thinks God can change someone’s sexuality also think God will save him from coronavirus
Andrew Wommack, who refused to condemn Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, supports traumatising conversion therapy and claims he witnessed his son rise from the dead, referenced a section from Exodus and said it proved that God would stop the faithful from becoming sick with COVID-19.
I’ve been studying just in the last couple of days, based on all of this, was Exodus 23:25, and that verse says that you shall serve the Lord your God, and He shall take away all sickness – take all sickness away from the midst of thee,” Wommack said in the YouTube stream.
Anti-LGBT+ televangelist Andrew Wommack thinks God will ‘turn off’ cells and stop him from contracting coronavirus.
He then looked up the words “take away” in Hebrew and said they literally translate to “turn off”.
Wommack then suggested that God will turn off “whatever receptors you have in your body that make you receptive to sickness” for Christians, which will apparently prevent them from being affected by coronavirus.

Pride Organizations Around The World Will Come Together For A Virtual Global Pride
The COVID-19 crisis has led to hundreds of cancelled Pride celebrations around the globe—but the LGBTQIA community has found a way to celebrate anyway. This week, international Pride organizations announced Global Pride, a 24-hour virtual celebration that will take place on June 27.
Global Pride is the result of a collaboration between InterPride, a global federation of Pride organizations, and the European Pride Organisers Association.
“Events will be about bringing together Pride organizations and the broader LGBTQIA community around the globe,” says Interpride co-president Andrew Baker. “Pride organizations have been invited to express interest in producing or providing content to the event, and it will be a mixture of both live speeches, dialogue, engagement pieces, performances by musicians, queer artists, and other entertainers.”

A transgender woman was found bludgeoned to death with rocks near a basketball court in a small town.
The woman’s body was found by authorities this past Sunday morning with severe injuries to her neck, which they believe were inflicted using stones that were left next to her body.

Police cordoned off the area and investigators with the prosecutor’s office took over the investigation.
Group Behind NYC Central Park Tent Hospital Makes Workers Adhere to ‘Statement of Faith’ That Says Gays Will Burn in Hell
Samaritan’s Purse, the group funding and erecting the makeshift coronavirus tent hospital in New York City’s Central Park, makes all workers, including health care providers, “read and adhere” to a statement of faith that says gay people will burn in Hell. Samaritan’s Purse is run by “Christian” homophobe Franklin Graham.
Gothamist reports: “Graham, the son of prominent minister Billy Graham, has specifically sought to recruit Christian medical staff to the Central Park facility. According to the group’s website, all volunteers, including health care workers, should read and adhere to a statement of faith, in which marriage is defined as ‘exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female’ and the unrighteous are sentenced to ‘everlasting punishment in hell.'”
