Did U.K.’s Most Prolific Serial Rapist Ignite a LGBTQ “Witch Hunt?"
“The case of Reynhard Sinaga has already provoked a backlash against LGBTIQ people in Indonesia,” says Paul Jansen, senior advisor for global advocacy at OutRight Action International. “Indonesian media sensationalized the case, presenting it not as the actions of one criminal, but rather as representative of the nature of all LGBTIQ people. In response, the city of Depok, south of Jakarta, has announced a witch hunt to chase LGBTIQ people out of the city, as ‘perverts and criminals have no place in the city.’ Other officials and other cities may follow suit. Rising hate speech is likely to increase hate-motivated discrimination, harassment, and violence against LGBTIQ people.”
In one example, Mohammad Idris, the mayor of Depok, recently directed police to weed out “LGBT behavior” and called on local agencies to stop the “spread of LGBT,” according to The Guardian. Using Sinaga’s crime as justification, Idris also vowed to launch a center in Depok to rehabilitate LGBTQ “victims.”

Two trans women beat the snot out of men harassing them in a restaurant

Chick-fil-A's Last U.K. Location Shutters After Months-Long Protest
The last Chick-fil-A in the United Kingdom has flown the coop.
The restaurant, located in a Macdonald Hotels property in the Scottish Highlands, was controversial from its launch in October due to the fast-food chain's history of donating to anti-LGBTQ organizations.
Due to this problematic history, Scott Cuthbertson, an LGBTQ activist, had launched a petition calling for its closure, which quickly accrued 1,000 signatures.
Additionally, Patrick Harvie, the first out bisexual member of Scottish Parliament, called on a boycott of the restaurant among his fellow politicians, who often stay at the luxury Macdonald Aviemore Resort.

Texas Gov. Celebrates Signing Antigay Legislation With Chick-fil-A
Last month, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed what was dubbed the essentially anti-LGBTQ "Save Chick-fil-A" bill into law. If it weren’t enough that Abbott signed the bill over a month ago, late last week he thumbed his nose at LGBTQ people even more and participated in a TV ceremony celebrating the bill’s signing while he and his team were surrounded by Chick-fil-A food and beverages. He then tweeted the moment out to his supporters.
“No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners donate to a church, the Salvation Army, or other religious organization,” Abbott said.
“No business should lose a government contract because of their religious beliefs. The save Chick-fil-A legislation that I’m about to sign is a victory for religious freedom in Texas.”

Denny’s Manager Tried to Kick Out Black Women for Complaining About Racial Slurs
Three black Michigan women who were harassed at a Denny’s by four white bikers have alleged that the manager at the diner tried to make them leave when they complained about the bikers’ use of racial slurs, the Lansing State Journal reported Thursday. According to the newspaper, the manager, who later called law enforcement on the women when they wouldn’t leave, defended the bikers’ use of slurs as protected free speech.
The incident occurred back in October but received little attention at the time. The women, Sasha Collins, 27, Jennifer McEwen, 25, and LaMaya McGuire, 22, say they had arrived at the Denny’s in Delta Township around 4 a.m. after a night out celebrating Collins’ birthday. The women say they had not been drinking and that they were quietly waiting on their food when the four bikers arrived.
According to the Journal, which noted that security footage backed up much of the women’s account, the harassment began when one man in a Blue Angels motorcycle club jacket began loudly using racial slurs to talk about the women. He told a waitress to “serve them [racial slur] some T-bones.” The waitress ignored the slur.
