Time 100's LGBTQ Honorees Include Lady Gaga, Ryan Murphy, Indya Moore
Ryan Murphy — the gay producer of FX's Pose, American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and more — is among those in the "titans" category. His entry was written by Jessica Lange, whose acting career experienced a revival in part due to Murphy casting her in AHS.
"He is a born storyteller, and, like the best of them, he is constantly pushing the limits. I have often marveled at his uncanny ability at capturing the zeitgeist," Lange wrote.
"Ryan is an artist of unlimited creative power and talent. But, more importantly, he has a great heart and is a dear and fiercely loyal friend. My life is better for knowing him."
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.

San Jose to hang rainbow flags at airport Chick-fil-A in support of LGBTQ rights
A California city that last year approved the addition of a Chick-fil-A at its local airport now wants to send a message of support to LGBTQ people as the opening date for the fast-food restaurant nears.
The San Jose City Council voted 11-0 on Tuesday to hang rainbow flags in support of LGBTQ people and pink, blue and white flags for transgender rights at or near a Chick-fil-A due to open in May at San Jose International Airport.
Rosemary Barnes, a spokeswoman for the airport, said it will decide where to place the flags.
The council's vote comes as two other cities around the country have blocked Chick-fil-A from opening at their airports over concerns that the restaurant chain has a record of supporting anti-gay organizations.

OFFERING HEALTH CHECK-UPS IN BARBERSHOPS COULD TRANSFORM HEALTH CARE FOR BLACK MEN IN AMERICA
Dennis Mitchell owns a small ground-floor barbershop in the heart of Harlem, where he presides over rows of gleaming salon chairs, cutting fades and shaves and earning the nickname Denny Moe. For years, one of the regular customers sitting in front of Moe's mirrors has been Dr. Joseph Ravenell, an associate professor in the Departments of Population Health and Medicine at New York University's School of Medicine. Barbershops have been havens for Ravenell since he was a kid, when he accompanied his father to his regular haircuts and witnessed the bonds that men formed in these safe places, "talking about everything under the sun."
As an adult, Ravenell focuses his research on the medical disparities black men face in America.
"As a man myself, and a father and a brother, I have an enlightened self-interest in the topic," he says, laughing. Black men, because of both logistical barriers and mistrust, are often cut off from health-care systems—but as he was thinking about haircuts one day, Ravenell says, "a lightbulb went off." Barbers, he thought, as trusted confidants and community leaders, could become a powerful bloc to promote health in black communities.
Taraji P. Henson Opens Up About Her Mental Health & Stigma of Mental Illness in the Black Community
THE HIDDEN STIGMA IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
Whether it was Slavery, Jim Crow, The Crack Epidemic, or Mass Incarceration, the suffering that Black people endured seems to have been never-ending. With that being said, the trauma that many of us have faced since the beginning of modern western civilization takes its toll on one’s mental health.
The stigma of dealing with the continuous cycle of the demonization of addressing one’s mental health in the Black community is one that prevents those seeking help to enhance their lives and, in some cases, to save them. Toxic masculinity is another contribution to this stigma as Black children, especially little boys, are told that expressing any sort of emotion is a sign of weakness. This conditioning can harbor psychological health issues for years to come.
According to the US HHS Office of Minority Health, adult African-Americans are 20% more likely to state that they are suffering from psychological distress than their adult white counterparts. This is due to less than 2% of the American Psychological Association being African-American, which leads many African-Americans to distrust mental health care practitioners to help them with their issues.
Married Indians are looking for same-sex affairs after decriminalization
In the six months since India decriminalized gay sex, users looking for same-sex encounters on an extramarital affairs service have increased by 45%.
‘People feel freer to express their sexual preference and to pursue homosexual or bisexual encounters outside the wedlock’ Gleeden said in a press release.
Based in France, Gleeden is a female-run dating app for people looking to cheat on their husbands or wives. It has more than 4.5 million registered users.
Three percent of Gleeden’s 500,000 users in India’s are listed as homosexual while 1% are listed as bisexual.
In September last year, India’s Supreme Court ruled that a colonial-era law banning gay sex with up to 10 years in prison was unconstitutional.
What’s more, in October the same court scrapped a law which criminalized adultery.

Catholic Mom Terrified that Leggings Are Corrupting Her Sons
Leggings are like a giant sock that extend up your thigh, enveloping your butt in a soft, warm embrace. They are also, as concerned Catholic mother Maryann White recently wrote in the University of Notre Dame student paper, the Observer, a devious invention by the fashion industry that “has caused women to voluntarily expose their nether regions.”
White, a mother of four sons, is struggling to teach her sons that “women are someone’s daughters and sisters” (yikes) and leggings are apparently adding to her struggle.
In “The Legging Problem,” she wrote:
I was ashamed for the young women at Mass. I thought of all the other men around and behind us who couldn’t help but see their behinds. My sons know better than to ogle a woman’s body — certainly when I’m around (and hopefully, also when I’m not). They didn’t stare, and they didn’t comment afterwards. But you couldn’t help but see those blackly naked rear ends. I didn’t want to see them — but they were unavoidable. How much more difficult for young guys to ignore them.
Stevie Nicks Becomes First Woman to be Inducted Into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Twice
