    A passenger aboard a recent Jet2 flight from Spain to England saw something no traveler ever wants to see on a plane: a beer in the cockpit. Steve Lewis, of Northamptonshire, England, says he was shocked upon landing at Birmingham airport and seeing a can of Stella Artois sitting between the pilots. The plane had landed and the seatbelt light came on. I stood up to get my suitcase and as I did the cockpit door opened and I noticed the can, said Lewis, according to The Metro. I turned to my partner Steven, who didnt believe me at first,...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A majority of Americans believe that transgender individuals should be allowed to serve in the military, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Friday. The July 26-28 poll suggested that the country largely disagrees with President Donald Trump's announcement this week that he will ban transgender personnel from the armed forces. When asked to weigh in on the debate, 58 percent of adults agreed with the statement, "Transgender people should be allowed to serve in the military." Twenty-seven percent said they should not while the rest answered "don't know." Democrats mostly supported military service...

The new permanent design will be, from top to bottom: black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. The black and brown stripes are an inclusionary way to highlight black and brown LGBTQIA members within our community, said one source involved with the flag-raising event who asked not to be named.

    More than 9 in 10 new HIV cases among young men and boys ages 13 to 24 in the U.S. occur among homosexuals and bisexuals, according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The April 25 CDC report, HIV Among Gay and Bisexual Men, offers stark evidence of the extreme health risks associated with male homosexual sex, in particular receptive anal sex. Below are some of its findings: Gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24 accounted for an estimated 92 percent of new HIV diagnoses among all men in their age group...

    (RNS) Lighten up, Ash Wednesday.A New York-based advocacy group called Parity is asking Christians who favor LGBT equality  — “queer positive Christians,” in their parlance — to show their support by wearing “glitter ash” on their foreheads to mark Ash Wednesday (March 1).Ash Wednesday kicks off the six-week somber season called Lent that leads to Easter, and is usually marked in churches with the color purple. Traditionally, plain gray ashes, blessed by a minister or priest, are smeared on the foreheads of Christians to symbolize repentance.“This is a way for queer Christians and queer-positive persons of faith to say ‘We are here,'”...

    The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has launched a smoking prevention campaign aimed at young adult lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) persons who are occasional users of tobacco. Young adult LGBT persons are nearly twice as likely to use tobacco as other young adults, said Mitch Zeller, JD, director, Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), FDA, during a press briefing to announce the campaign, called This Free Life. Of the more than 2 million LGBT persons aged 18 to 24 years in the United States, more than 800,000 are occasional or so-called social smokers, according to Dr Zeller. "Unfortunately,...

    Jason Langlois and Will Bladh are in the early stages of making plans for their summer 2017 wedding, and they dont want their excitement pierced by the pain of being rejected by a venue, florist and photographer who have a legal right in Utah to refuse to serve a gay couple. Thats why they joined several hundred people Sunday at a gay and lesbian wedding expo in Salt Lake City aimed at connecting couples with businesses who want to make it known theyre open to doing same-sex weddings.

From the neon lights of Broadway and their work on the new musical "Something Rotten!" to the serenity of West Milford's Pinecliff Lake, where the only illumination comes from the stars, two Manhattan renters couldn't come up with a more different setting for their first home. But that is what Aaron Kaburick and Patrick Wetzel wanted in a getaway home....

    NBC Washington ^ | Jul 8, 2015
    The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington is traveling to Cuba Saturday to spread their message through song. The 23 singers are among the first U.S. citizens who will be able to travel to Cuba since diplomatic relations with the U.S. improved. The group aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ rights through music. "It brings people together over something without addressing the issue head on. So, I often find that music can be actually more powerful than giving a speech at podium," Executive Director Chase Maggiano said. The chorus is scheduled to perform several concerts around Havana next week in addition...

    If you think the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association removed homosexuality from the list of mental disorders in 1973 based on sound scientific study and research, think again. It was nothing but a cowardly collapse in the face of homosexual confrontation and intimidation. And one collapse after another has occurred since then. Brian Clowes, director of research at Human Life International gives a chilling description of how it came about in his article, The Homosexuals' American Psychological Association Coup. In view of the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, Clowes article is must reading. It shows...

    WASHINGTONThe U.S. Supreme Court decision, June 26, interpreting the U.S. Constitution to require all states to license and recognize same-sex marriage is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us, said Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The full statement follows: Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history, the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable. Just as Roe v. Wade did not settle the question of abortion over forty years...

    The U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Obergefell v. Hodges case provides yet more evidence that smart people can be monumentally foolish. This decision not only denies reality but also robs citizens of their right to self-government. From the gaseous emanations of their own imaginations, five of our supremacist justices have discerned a heretofore nonexistent constitutional requirement that homoerotic unions be recognized as marriages. Justices Kennedy, Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan, and Sotomayor have also decided to impose same-sex marriage on all states, nullifying the decisions of citizens in states that have legally established marriage as a sexually complementary institution.

    The ruling by SCOTUS now legalizing homosexual marriage opens a very dangerous door. The church will be attacked next....and very soon. Mark my words. There will be text cases where homosexual "couples" will go to conservative Bible believing churches and ask to be married there. They will be denied, hopefully, and then the church will be sued for denying Constitutional rights. Will the pastor go to jail? Will the church lose its tax exempt status? It has been the goal of the homosexual community to have the stigma of their lifestyle as accepted by the church. Satan is moving fast....

    A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official cited an epidemic of syphilis among homosexual men during an event Thursday by a lobbying group pushing for an increase in federal funding for sexually transmitted disease prevention from $157 million to $212 million. Were also seeing what we are calling pretty much an epidemic of syphilis among men who have sex with men that really started in the early 2000, 2002, but weve seen a dramatic increase since 2008, Dr. Gail Bolan, director of CDCs Division of STD Prevention, said at a briefing by the National Coalition of STD...

    Scientists are stepping up efforts to identify a mysterious gooey substance polluting waters along the eastern edge of San Francisco Bay, coating hundreds of sea birds and killing scores of them, a state wildlife official said Tuesday. Initial field testing of the slime, first reported on Friday, came back negative for petroleum but authorities hope a more comprehensive laboratory analysis will provide some conclusive results, said Andrew Hughan, spokesman for the California Department of Fish & Wildlife. More than 100 birds, mostly ocean-going water fowl, have died after their feathers became soaked in the colorless, odorless goop, impairing their ability...
