HIV criminalization is happening in 72 countries 

 

HIV criminalization continues: a global review has found that HIV-related arrests, investigations, prosecutions and convictions have ever occurred in at least 72 countries, with recent cases occurring in 49 countries, including 14 in which the law appeared to be applied for the first time.

The HIV Justice Network’s review concerns cases in which either the criminal or similar law is applied to people living with HIV based on HIV-positive status. Either via HIV-specific criminal statutes (29 countries), general criminal or similar laws (37 countries), or both (6 countries). Such laws typically criminalize non-disclosure of HIV status to a sexual partner, potential or perceived exposure to HIV, or transmission of HIV.

HIV criminalization ‘is a pervasive illustration of how state-sponsored stigma and discrimination works against a marginalized group of people with immutable characteristics,’ says HIV Justice Network.

Chanel Scurlock Is the Fifth Black Trans Woman Killed in the Last Month 

 

The body of 23-year-old Chanel Scurlock was found in a field in Lumberton, North Carolina, just after midnight on Wednesday. She is at least the ninth Black trans woman killed in the U.S. in 2019, and the fifth killed in the past month, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

Police found Scurlock, who lived in Lumber Bridge, N.C., with fatal gunshot wounds after responding to reports of gunfire in the area. They have yet to identify a suspect, though Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins told The Robesonian, a local paper, that police have "great leads.

Anti-LGBTQ Sentiment Is Rising Around the World 

 

If only the greatest problem facing the LGBTQ community today were that two gay rats couldn’t get married in Alabama. For those not following the world of children’s television with great enthusiasm, the Alabama affiliate of PBS chose not to broadcast an episode of the children’s program Arthur in which Mr. Ratburn marries his longtime male friend Patrick, an aardvark chocolatier. Some people have complained that they would have difficulties explaining the content of such an episode to their children.

I agree—it could be distressing to have to explain to a child that rats are not sophisticated enough to have weddings, let alone become chocolatiers. Explaining that same-sex couples get married, however, should be a breeze. It happens every day. If your child does not understand what a wedding is, you can show them the end of nearly any Disney movie.

But the public pushback on a seemingly harmless episode of Arthur is just one instance of the discomfort that many people still feel with LGBTQ people being considered equal under law. Very recently, Trump’s Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed a rule that would allow housing that receives federal funds—such as homeless shelters—to discriminate against transgender individuals.

Ohio City Backs Down After Catholic School Files Lawsuit Over Religious Rights 

 

The city of South Euclid, Ohio has backed down after a Catholic school filed a lawsuit challenging the city's anti-discrimination law on the grounds that it infringed on its religious freedom.

The city announced earlier this week it would not apply the law to the Catholic school after refusing for months to say whether the statute would require the school to operate against its religious beliefs, according to an Alliance Defending Freedom news release.

The Lyceum sued the city in April, arguing the law would violate its religious rights by raising the prospect of penalties for its beliefs about marriage and gender identity. The school suggested its admissions and employment policies could place it at risk under the ordinance.

The school upholds the Catholic beliefs that marriage is between a man and woman, sex should be reserved for marriage, and a person's gender is determined at birth. Students and faculty are expected to abide by these beliefs, and students who disagree with the teachings can be denied admission or expelled.

Kenya's Judges Uphold Laws That Criminalize Gay Sex 

 

Kenya's High Court has chosen to uphold colonial-era laws that criminalize gay sex, dashing the hopes of activists who believed the judges would overturn sections of the penal code as unconstitutional and inspire a sea change across the continent.

Three judges said Friday that the laws in question did not target the LGBTQ community. They were not convinced that people's basic rights had been violated, they said.

"We are not persuaded by the petitioners that the offenses against them are overboard," one of the judges said, according local media.

The case stems from to a petition filed in 2016 by activist Eric Gitari, with the support of organizations serving LGBTQ Kenyans. They argued that two sections of Kenya's penal code violated people's rights: Article 162 penalizes "carnal knowledge ... against the order of nature" with up to 14 years in prison, and Article 165 castigates "indecent practices between males" with the possibility of five years' imprisonment.

Gay couple film themselves being turned away from restaurant in Mexico 

 

A gay couple in Mexico captured footage of a restaurant owner refusing them service.

Rubén Veliz, 29, and Edwin Contreras, 27, had gone to dine at Pozole Y Tacos (#1200-B Coloniza Colinas de San Jerónimo), Monterrey, Nuevo León, at around 5pm on Sunday (28 April). Veliz tells Gay Star News he has visited the establishment several times previously.

However, on this occasion, on seeing the men holding hands, the restaurant’s owner refused to serve them.

He allegedly screamed at them over holding hands, calling it ‘bullshit’, and insisting he had every right to refuse service.

Bipartisan Bill Seeks LGBTQ Housing Protections 

 

New legislation could extend housing protections to LGBTQ individuals nationwide.

U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider, an Illinois Democrat, Tuesday introduced legislation to extend consistent nondiscrimination rules. The Fair and Equal Housing Act of 2019 would cover sexual orientation and gender identity the same as race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability.

“No American should face discrimination finding a home because of who they are or who they love,” Schneider said in a press release.

“Yet the majority of states still have no laws prohibiting housing discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. I am proud to lead this long overdue bipartisan bill to extend federal protections to ensure all LGBTQ individuals and same-sex couples can access housing without prejudice. I am also pleased that these important housing protections were incorporated into the Equality Act, and I look forward to voting on this anti-discrimination package soon.”

How the Supreme Court Case on LGBT Rights Could Set Us Back Decades 

 

It’s been almost four years since the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage for everyone, and yet, anti-LGBT discrimination remains a real problem in much of this country. In a majority of states, LGBT folks can be fired or otherwise discriminated against for no reason other than their sexual orientation or gender identity. That may change though, as yesterday the Supreme Court agreed to hear three cases that could fix this problem — or possibly set anti-discrimination law back decades.

How is it that anti-LGBT job discrimination is still allowed? Well, we can blame Congressional Republicans for that. Every time Democrats have attempted to change Title VII — the federal law that protects against discrimination in employment — to include sexual orientation and gender identity, they have been met with fierce opposition from Republicans.

CHINA HAS CREATED A RACIST A.I. TO TRACK MUSLIMS 

 

The Chinese government is using facial-recognition software to “track and control” a predominantly Muslim minority group, according to a disturbing new report from The New York Times. The Chinese government has reportedly integrated artificial intelligence into its security cameras to identify the Uighurs and appears to be using the information to monitor the persecuted group. The report, based on the accounts of whistleblowers familiar with the systems and a review of databases used by the government and law enforcement, suggests the authoritarian country has opened up a new frontier in the use of A.I. for racist social control—and raises the discomfiting possibility that other governments could adopt similar practices.

Two people familiar with the matter told the Times that police in the Chinese city of Sanmenxia screened whether residents were Uighurs 500,000 times in a single month. Documents provided to the paper reportedly show demand for the technology is ballooning: more than 20 departments in 16 provinces sought access to the camera system, in one case writing that it “should support facial recognition to identify Uighur/non-Uighur attributes.” This, experts say, is more than enough to raise red flags. “I don’t think it’s overblown to treat this as an existential threat to democracy,” Jonathan Frankle, an A.I. researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told the Times. “Once a country adopts a model in this heavy authoritarian mode, it’s using data to enforce thought and rules in a much more deep-seated fashion than might have been achievable 70 years ago in the Soviet Union. To that extent, this is an urgent crisis we are slowly sleepwalking our way into.”

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.

Hate Crimes Spiked 226% in Counties Where Trump Held Rallies 

 

Counties where Donald Trump held rallies leading up to the 2016 presidential election saw a huge increase in hate crimes, according to a new analysis.

“We found that counties that had hosted a 2016 Trump campaign rally saw a 226 percent increase in reported hate crimes over comparable counties that did not host such a rally,” researchers Ayal Feinberg, Regina Branton, and Valerie Martinez-Ebers wrote in The Washington Post. Feinberg is a Ph.D. candidate in political science at University of North Texas, and Branton and Martinez-Ebers are professors there.

A second counselor at this Indiana Catholic school will lose her job over same-sex marriage 

 

A second guidance counselor at an Indiana Catholic school has been told she will lose her job because she is in a same-sex marriage.

A lawyer for Lynn Starkey, co-director of guidance at Roncalli High School, says school officials told her that her contract will not be renewed for the 2019-2020 school year.

"Starkey’s 39 years of exemplary employment, including teacher of the year recognition in 2009, will end because she is in a same-sex marriage and because she filed discrimination complaints," attorney Kathleen DeLaney said Monday in an emailed statement.

Delaney said she will amend a discrimination charge Starkey filed in November with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to include the fact that Starkey is losing her job.

Transgender man claims Catholic hospital refused to perform a hysterectomy on him. Now, he’s suing. 

 

A transgender man has filed a lawsuit against a Catholic hospital for refusing to perform a hysterectomy on him for religious reasons, Newsweek reported.

The lawsuit filed Thursday by the American Civil Liberties Union claims that St. Joseph Hospital in California discriminated against Oliver Knight because he is transgender.

"The refusal of St. Joseph to allow a doctor to perform a medically necessary procedure because the patient is transgender is discriminatory," Jessica Riggin, a lawyer who is representing Knight, said in a statement. "This is a hospital that is open to the general public so even though it's religiously affiliated, it's illegal for them to turn away someone based on gender identity. Everyone should be able to get the care they need."

This high school prom bans same-sex guests, even after a lawsuit about it 

 
 

A high school is coming under fire for banning same-sex guests at their prom.

Students at Tremont Attendance Center, a public school in Tremont, Mississippi, were told to sign paperwork that bans same-sex guests to prom.

“Guests must be 10th grade-21 years old and of the opposite sex,” a liability release form says.

“This is a night set aside to honor and celebrate our Juniors and Seniors and will be treated as such,” the form says in the same paragraph, possibly as an explanation for the ban on same-sex guests.
