“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 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.

5-Year-Old Ga. Girl Found Slain in Bed Suffered 'a Horrible Death,' and Caretaker Is Charged
A 5-year-old Georgia girl described as “gentle” and “loving” by those who knew her was found dead, and the man entrusted to care for her is behind bars.
On March 29, Savannah Adams was found dead in her southwest Atlanta home, WJCL and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution report. Her cause of death has not yet been determined, but Capt. D’Andrea Price of the Atlanta police said she had “substantial bruising.”
“It was a horrible death. I actually didn’t sleep that well that night from seeing her,” Price, who responded to the 911 call, told WSB-TV. “You could basically see the visible bruising to her body and her face.”

Don Lemon Bursts Into Tears While Discussing Friend & Co-Worker Chris Cuomo's Coronavirus Diagnosis
CNN anchor Don Lemon got emotional Tuesday night while talking with his friend and fellow news anchor Chris Cuomo, who has tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
After discussing what people can do if they cannot pay their mortgages or rents with colleague Bianna Golodryga on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the host started to tear up.
“I said I wasn’t going to do this,” Lemon, 54, said wiping away tears with a tissue.
“He’s probably at home laughing at me,” the host joked before explaining how close he is with his colleague.
“Chris and I are really good friends, we live near each other,” adding, “anyway, he’s not here, and we have this great relationship.”

Guy in an open relationship has the absolute worst reaction to his wife getting a girlfriend
Writing anonymously on Reddit, the woman said she is “confused and hurt” by her husband’s hostile response to her new partner.
She explained that she has been with her husband for seven years. For around six of those years, they were in a monogamous relationship, but last year her husband suggested they open up their marriage to include other people.
The woman was scared about the prospect of an open relationship, and not entirely comfortable with the idea, but her husband said he would leave her if she didn’t agree as it was what he wanted.
But the man apparently got more than he bargained for when his wife introduced a female partner into the mix.
Initially, the couple encountered stumbling blocks when her husband’s partners did not want to have threesomes, which left the woman feeling “dejected and upset”.
Groom calls off wedding after cheating fiancé is quarantined with another man right before ceremony
Matt Hillier has put his wedding plans on hold after discovering his fiancé was sleeping with another man. Two weeks before the ceremony, his would-be husband was put in quarantine after coming down with the symptoms of coronavirus infection.
Hillier had moved from England to Brazil to marry Octavio Santos and didn’t find out until Santos confessed – because the other man was quarantined with him in the same apartment.
“I am angry and bitter,” Hillier told the British tabloid The Daily Mail. “He is a cheat and this is a total slap in the face. I’ve moved to the other side of the world to start a life with this man. I’ve spent so much time stressing over organizing our wedding so that it’s perfect.”
“I even flew my parents and sister out in February to hear the reading of our wedding banns and I’ve got everything ready for our ceremony at the beginning of April.”
The other man, identified as Nathan, is a mutual friend. The three had plans to travel to Rio for the weekend when the AirBnB told them they couldn’t bring Santos’ dog.
POLITICS STUDY REVEALS THE MAJOR FACTOR THAT INFLUENCES FAMILIES TO BE CONSERVATIVE
Your family has a huge influence on your politics — whether you like it or not. It’s well established that the political values of parents hugely influences their children’s party affiliation. Now, a new study reveals that family influence goes beyond if your parents lean blue or red: It’s the size of a family — how many kids there are, as well as how many siblings you grow up with — that is positively correlated with how conservative your family values trend.
Political polarization is a defining feature of American politics — and polls indicate that negative feelings directed at opposing parties have increased in recent years. Despite this, the trend towards liberalism has been slowly but steadily gaining traction over time, with the American political mood now thought to be the most liberal it has ever been.
However, the findings of this new study suggest that a specific form of conservatism — one that is interested in family values, called “traditional-family conservatism” — still persists generation after generation, despite generally increasing liberalism. The BIGGER YOUR FAMILY, the more likely you are to UPHOLD THESE VALUES, the research suggests.
A British newspaper decided that the coronavirus pandemic was the perfect time to ‘demystify’ anal sex
“Every couple of years – whisper it – anal sex comes back,” the article begins.
Yes, that sound you hear is a million queer men asking the same question: Are the straights OK?
Describing anal sex as a “trend”, the piece manages 700 words on the great “taboo” without once thinking about the fact that, despite its anti-trans coverage, the Sunday Times will surely be read by some members of the LGBT+ community – or at least, it was until now.
“It’s the sex act fraught with judgment from women and men alike, celebrated and vilified in our culture,” the article’s subheading reads.
Gay man says he prefers having sex with straight men because they don’t want romance
A gay man has said he prefers having sex with straight men because there is no risk of romance or commitment.
The anonymous man described his unconventional sex life for The Guardian’s weekly column “My Life in Sex”.
He wrote: “There have always been men who have sex with other men, but don’t consider themselves gay or even bisexual.
“I should know; I’ve been sleeping with them since my schooldays.
“I prefer sex with straight men because they don’t want romance; with gay men there’s always the possibility that they could get the wrong end of the stick and want something more.”

The adult actress Heather Vahn opens up about the emotional and physical abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of fellow porn actor Tommy Wood. And she’s not the only one.
Vahn is seated across from me at The Daily Beast’s office in Manhattan. She appears emotionally drained, breaking down in tears several times during the course of our conversation. The popular adult actress, 31, is here to discuss the horrific cycle of psychological and physical abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of Tommy Wood, a rising adult film star who recently had a feature role in the AVN award-winning Drive, and whom AVN, the adult industry’s premier trade magazine, recently branded a “fresh face.”
A little over a week ago, on March 8, Vahn tweeted out graphic images of her bruised body to her 84,000-plus followers, accompanied by a message: “this wasn’t consensual. this happened as a result of wanting to ‘talk out’ an incident and he wanted to sleep and talk in the morning. When I said no we talk now – this was my punishment. THIS MAN IS IN PORN NOW.”

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.

21-year-old jailed after he “flipped” and attacked gay veteran lover with a knife
The pair were in a consensual relationship before the attack.
Dylan Upton, a 21-year-old, has been jailed for eleven years and eight months after he “flipped” and attacked his male army veteran lover, whose name has not been revealed, with a knife before ransacking his house.
A restraining order has also been placed on Dylan, preventing him from contacting his victim ever again.
Dylan, who also had a long-term girlfriend, met the man on Grindr and embarked on a “drug-fuelled” six-month relationship with him. However, the relationship changed after he went to the man’s flat following a Parklife event.
Gay, Lesbian Teens at High Odds for Physical, Sexual Abuse
Lesbian, gay and bisexual teens are far more likely than their straight peers to suffer physical and/or sexual violence, new research warns.
The warning stems from surveys of nearly 29,000 teens, aged 14 to 18, conducted in 2015 and 2017 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Overall, LGBQ teens (lesbian, gay, bisexual and teens who are questioning their sexuality) face roughly twice the risk of physical violence compared with straight youth, the surveys revealed. And that risk can come from a romantic partner -- or anyone else.
"Unfortunately, physical and sexual violence are commonplace in the daily lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and questioning adolescents," he said.
Over one in 10 LGBQ teens reported intimate partner violence in the past year, Caputi said. And more than one in five said they had been sexually assaulted.
"Given the severe physical, mental and emotional health consequences of violence victimhood, this high prevalence represents a public health crisis," he said.
Lesbian allegedly burns down apartment building throwing flaming hand sanitizer at her girlfriend
28-year-old Destiny Waite has been arrested after a domestic violence altercation with her girlfriend turned deadly. Waite threw a flaming bottle of hand sanitizer at her partner and caught the apartment building on fire.
Flames shot through the Hartford, Connecticut building in the early morning hours, leaving one man dead and dozens had to be rescued. Four other people were sent to the hospital with critical injuries.
A National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Study conducted in 2011 stated that LGBTQ communities of color are one of the demographic groups experiencing the highest incidents of domestic violence.
