University of Kansas faculty and staff want Chick-fil-A boycotted, calling it a 'bastion of bigotry' 

 

Faculty and staff at the University of Kansas sent a letter to the school's chancellor, calling for a boycott of Chick-fil-A on campus over the company's stance on LGBTQ issues, according to The Hill.

Over the summer, the university allowed Chick-fil-A to open a location inside the student union, and entered a contract agreement with the company to sponsor the "Chick-fil-A coin toss" at home football games in coming years. Faculty and staff have protested Chick-fil-A's support of organizations "hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer LGBTQ people, families, and communities."

New Campaign Highlights Major Companies Backing Antigay Politicians 

 

A new campaign wants corporations like AT&T and Amazon to stop giving money to anti-LGBTQ politicians. Until that happens, the organization suggests consumers stop putting dollars in those companies’ accounts.

The political arm for CREDO Mobile, a mobile virtual network directing revenue to progressive causes, launched a petition campaign today targeting AT&T, T-Mobile, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Dell. Officials say those companies alone have donated more than $5 million to homophobic politicians, all while providing corporate sponsorship to Pride events and marketing to LGBTQ consumers.

"It is unacceptable for corporations to co-opt the pride flag in order to make a profit off the LGBTQ community while simultaneously giving millions to some of the most hateful, homophobic members of Congress,” said Campaign Manager Thaís Marques. of CREDO Action.

American doctors don’t know how to treat LGBTQ+ cancer patients 

 

A 2019 study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology sheds some light on this epidemic. Researchers from the Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute and New York University’s School of Medicine found that fewer than 40% of the 450 oncologists surveyed in cancer centers across the country said they were adequately equipped or informed to treat a cancer patient who identifies as LGBTQ+.

Tips For Keeping A Positive Mindset 

 

Mental health should be a major priority for everyone, is it deals with our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Mental health impacts our day to day life by affecting how we think, feel, and interact. It can change the ways that we deal with stress, relate with others, and make decisions.

Unfortunately, mental health is something that can be affected negatively by a number of things including mental illnesses and disorders. Mental disorders like anxiety and depression are somewhat common. In fact, more than half of all Americans will be diagnosed with some type of mental disorder at some point in their life.

Tips To Help Improve Positivity

Positive Thinking

One of the best ways to remain positive is just to emphasize postive thinking. It should be noted that positive thinking doesn’t mean ignoring problems when they occur or looking at the world when blinders on. It simply means that you should approach difficult or unpleasant situations in a positive and productive way in which you look to remain happy and find solutions when you feel they are needed.

Here are the best US states for LGBT employees

 

Out Leadership just unveiled its grades for all 50 states on how well (or not) each state’s legislative policies and social attitudes provide a safe and empowering living environment for LGBT employees and residents contributing to the state’s economy.

The state topping The Business Climate Index is Massachusetts — the Northeastern state is strongest when it comes to making LGBT employees and residents feel most comfortable with their economic contributions. California ranked second and Connecticut ranked third.

“Companies that are doing business within those states are very aware of the economic impact of LGBT inclusion,” said Out Leadership founder Todd Sears during an interview with Yahoo Finance On the Move.“They’re weighing in. They’re using their economic power to say that anti-LGBT legislation is bad for business and that LGBT inclusion is good for business.”

Mississippi came in last place, scoring 31.17 out of 100, on the index. The Business Climate Index uses five main factors to measure a state’s index total: legal and nondiscrimination protections, youth and family support, political and religious attitudes, health access and safety, work environment and employment.

Trump’s New Rule Could Effectively Allow Discrimination Based on Race and Age 

 

A new Trump administration proposal would change the civil rights rules dictating whether providers must care for patients who are transgender or have had an abortion. While news stories have mainly focused on how the proposal might affect LGBTQ rights and abortion rights, the sweeping proposal has implications for all Americans, because the Department of Health and Human Services seeks to change how far civil rights protections extend and how those protections are enforced.

Mental Illness and Violence: A Primer  

 

There was a shooting at my alma mater, Central Michigan University, last week.

A 19-year-old student shot and killed his parents in his dorm room. His dad was a part-time police officer in the Chicago area. His mother worked at American Airlines.

His roommate was there at the time and saw the whole thing.

The student then ran and spent the day eluding over 100 peace officers. They found him later that night, about half a mile away along some railroad tracks.

In 2008, the FBI narrowed its definition of “mass shootings” to where four or more people are killed, typically in the same location. But in 2013, they widened it to a much more general definition: “an ‘active shooter’ is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.” (Read more here.) It was the twelfth school shooting this year. And we’re only nine weeks into the year.

Trump administration announces rollback of health care regulations protecting LGBTQ people 
 

The Health and Human Services Department (HHS) announced Friday that it is proposing a rule that would change a regulation under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that expanded anti-discrimination protections to transgender individuals.

The new regulation would change the 2016 rule that banned discrimination -- on the basis of sex and against trangender people -- by health care providers that receive federal funding.

In a release announcing the proposed change, HHS pointed to a Texas judge's December 2016 injunction that kept the Obama-era rule from being implemented. U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor sided with the state of Texas and other plaintiffs who argued that the Obama rule would force health care providers and insurers to enable transgender people to be treated and get coverage for gender transitions and abortions, despite their religious beliefs or against their medical judgment.

Chick-fil-A Says Its Anti-LGBTQ+ Donations Are a “Higher Calling” 

 

We all feel a higher calling sometimes. Maybe it’s to be a teacher. Maybe it’s to leave your six-figure job and be a full-time drag queen. Or maybe, if you’re the CEO of Chick-fil-A, it’s a calling to donate to anti-LGBTQ+ organizations.

In an interview with Business Insider, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of corporate social responsibility and executive director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation Rodney Bullard said that the company felt a “higher calling” to donate its money to anti-LGBTQ+ organizations.

Should Gay Men Be Getting Anal Pap Smears? 

 

It’s time to talk about Pap smears, guys.

More specifically, if you’re a man who has sex with other men, or MSM, you should consider talking to your medical provider about getting an anal Pap smear.

Most men outside the medical profession probably have only a vague idea at best of what a Pap smear is in the first place. It’s a screening test first developed for cervical cancer, known by a shortened version of its discoverer’s name. It’s performed by collecting a small sample of cells from the cervix, which are then examined for changes in their structure that might be signs of precancerous states. By routinely screening and initiating treatment early, what was once a leading cause of death among women of childbearing age now ranks 14th in cancer frequency.

In recent decades, the link between human papillomavirus and cervical cancer has been clearly established. The overwhelming majority of cervical cancer cases are caused by HPV infection, with two strains of the virus causing over 70 percent of them.

Trump Announces 'Conscience Rule' That Threatens LGBTQ Health Care 

 

The Department of Health and Human Services today announced its final “conscience rule” excusing health care personnel from participating in procedures to which they have religious or moral objections.

Activists have warned that the rule could jeopardize health care for LGBTQ people, such as those seeking gender-confirmation procedures or HIV treatment and prevention services, as well as women seeking contraception or abortion.

A draft of the rule was released in January 2018 so that HHS’s Office for Civil Rights could receive comments from the public on it. Donald Trump announced the finalization of the rule during a Rose Garden speech this morning for the National Day of Prayer, and HHS published the final rule on its website.

How to Find a LGBTQ-Affirming Therapist 

 

Finding the right therapist—someone you trust, someone you like, someone you click with—is important for anyone to ensure their therapy is effective. But for those who identify as LGBTQ, finding a therapist who is LGBTQ or LGBTQ-affirming is critical for creating a safe, supportive space.

Rosemary Donahue writes for Them that after a taking a decade-long break from awful, ineffective experiences with therapy, she realized that finding an LGBTQ-affirming therapist might be the key.

So Donahue collected a variety of resources for others in the queer community who may be in need (or want) of an LGBTQ or -affirming therapist.

What Is The Porn Block & How Will It Affect You? There Are Some Big Changes Coming 

 

In a bid to stop under-18s accessing pornographic websites, the government has announced that from July 15 age-checks will be introduced to commercial porn websites in the UK. The move has been dubbed the "porn block" and will require all sex websites that make money and run as businesses to introduce “robust” age verification procedures or risk facing a fine of up to £250,000 and being blocked by internet service providers. However, critics of the policy have said that teens will simply access porn in other ways, the loopholes are too large, and the changes may make little differences to big pornography platforms while putting smaller sex bloggers out of business.

While the porn block has come as a bit of a surprise for some it has actually been in the works for a long time, as the BBC reports. During the 2015 election the Conservative party pledged to introduce age-verification for online pornography if it won the election. It was also included in the Digital Economy Act 2017 and while it was supposed to be implemented in 2018 it has faced numerous delays.

The company that owns YouPorn and PornHub has developed the technology AgeID that will be used by those companies to verify the ages of its users. James Clark, Director of Communications at AgeID, told i-News, “first, a user can register an AgeID account using an email address and password, both of which are protected..." He continued:

“The user verifies their email address and then chooses an age verification option from our list of 3rd party providers, using options such as Mobile SMS, Credit Card, Passport, or Driving Licence.”

Gay Couples 73% More Likely to Be Denied By Mortgage Lenders Than Straight Couples: Study

 

A new study, looking at mortgage data from 1990 to 2015 finds that gay couples were 73% more likely to be denied in their mortgage applications than heterosexuals. And those who did get approved often faced higher rates.

On average, gay borrowers paid an extra 0.2% in interest and fees, adding up to an extra $86 million per year. Same-sex couples, however, do not present a higher default risk, said study authors Hua Sun and Lei Gao.
