    FULL TITLE: Social workers are slammed for failing to question 'articulate' adoptive gay father because they 'looked at him through a positive lens' before he killed his baby girl - as it emerges NO ONE has been disciplined A toddler was murdered by her adoptive father under the noses of social workers and doctors who refused to accept he was anything other than a 'positive parent', a damning report revealed today. Matthew Scully-Hicks, 31, from Cardiff, subjected 18-month-old Elsie Scully-Hicks to months of horrific assaults before killing her in an attack so severe her tiny body looked like it had...

    File  under “child abuse”  Course disputes idea that heterosexual sex is 'natural' Eugene Lang College is offering a "Queer Ecologies" course this fall devoted to countering “heterosexist” explanations of animals and nature. According to the instructor, common scientific practices like using the terms "male" and "female" when describing reproduction among plants and animals contributes to the perception that "queerness" is "unnatural." And do you know what else is unnatural? – post normal science (PNS). Once there was modern science, which was hard work; now we have postmodern science, where the quest for real, absolute truth is outdated, and "science" is...

    Bradley Kim, a defensive back at the Air Force Academy, announced on Friday that he is gay. Kim, who shared his story on his Instagram account and through an interview with OutSports, is the first active player at a service academy to publicly come out. "The biggest reason I want to share this is to be able to reach people who are in similar situations struggling with the same things I have struggled with," Kim told OutSports. "I want to be that example for kids that you can be gay, you can pursue your dreams, and you can have an...

    Forget what’s best for foster kids. According to the ACLU, all that matters is diversity. On any given day, an estimated 438,000 kids are in foster care. In 2016, nearly 700,000 American kids spent some time in foster care. That same year about 23,000 kids aged out of the system—they turned eighteen and were released from the custody of the state. Twenty percent of them instantly became homeless. Only half will be gainfully employed by age 24. Less than three percent will ever graduate college, and 25 percent will still exhibit symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. In other words, our...

    When The Naked Farmer came to town looking for people to get their kit off for a good cause, dairy farmer Kerry Wilson was approached to take part. He and his partner Paul Wilson agreed, though Kerry had reservations about not having the right body type. "Gee whiz, I'm 56. Does it matter?" Kerry asked. It didn't. The cause, which raises awareness about the mental health of Australian farmers, hit a personal chord with the couple. Kerry and Paul are fifth-generation farmers who live and work together near Nimbin in the northern rivers of New South Wales. "You carry a...

    LONDON, July 5, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The United Kingdom plans to impose a nationwide ban on any practice of reparative or “conversion” therapy for individuals experiencing same-sex attraction, unwanted or not, the government announced in a new report. “[T]he abhorrent practice of conversion therapy is still alive in our country,” the Government Equalities Office (GEO) announced in its newly-released LGBT Action Plan for “improving the lives” of LGBT people. “We will bring forward proposals to end the practice of conversion therapy in the UK, and take further action on hate crime as part of our upcoming refresh of the 2016...

    Welcome to LGBTQ Wrath Month. Perhaps you are confused. “#LoveIsLove!” you tweeted. “Love wins!” you said. And you meant well. You always mean well — the beer brands that used to mock us, the banks that denied us loans. The bachelorette parties that use us as props, the straight boys who assure us they are “cool with it” but do not get why we have to be so “in your face.” So quick to fly our flag, and even quicker to take it down. But now that June’s Pride Month is over and we’ve entered the muggy July heat, we...

    I’m a 35-year-old man and I’ve always identified as straight. I’ve been married twice and been in many relationships with genetic women but it never worked out. Recently, I’ve discovered my attraction to trans women. I’m not ashamed, but I am nervous for my friends and family to meet my amazing and beautiful transgender partner. How should I break it to them? I want to commend you for expressing your truth because it takes tremendous courage, particularly while living in a society that has very rigid notions of what masculinity looks and behaves like. In the trans community, we sometimes...

    A group of House Armed Services Committee Democrats is demanding answers from the Pentagon on why it is “backing away” from its annual Pride celebration. “We write to express our concern that Pentagon leadership is backing away from supporting and celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) service members and Department of Defense (DoD) employees,” the eight Democrats wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis. “The fight for dignity and inclusion for LGBT individuals in our Armed Forces should remain a steadfast priority for the Department of Defense.” The letter was organized by Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.). This...

    June is Pride Month, a ripe time to reflect on one of the most startling facts about our sexual culture today: Condom use is all but disappearing among large numbers of gay men. Many rightly attribute the condom’s decline to the rise of PrEP — an acronym for pre-exposure prophylaxis, a two-drug cocktail that inoculates a person from contracting H.I.V. But another crucial component is the fading memory of the AIDS crisis that once defined what it meant to be gay. After tracking the sexual practices of 17,000 gay and bisexual Australian men from 2014 to 2017, a team of...

    SAN FRANCISCO — The author M.G. Hennessey remembers the moment a few years ago, after reading a book with a disappointed 9-year-old. “He wished there was a book about a kid like him,” she said. The child was transgender, and although born female was living as a boy. Ms. Hennessey decided she would write the book the child needed. “The Other Boy,” published by HarperCollins for young readers, follows the life of Shane, a fictional transgender boy. Ms. Hennessey, who is heterosexual, hoped the book would enlighten children to be accepting of others. “The more you see representations in the...

The LGBTQ summit and fundraising event was held at the TCO Performance Center Auditorium in Eagan. It centered around bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and sports. In front of a packed crowd, former and current LGBTQ athletes shared stories about how they were criticized for who they loved while playing the sport they love. The event featured four panel discussions. Each one about an hour long.

    Editor’s note: This article accurately describes a “gay pride” event and contains language and images that may offend some readers. Thousands of gay rights activists and their supporters celebrated Saturday in Washington, D.C., by participating in and watching the city’s gay pride parade. The “Pride Month” parade consisted of over 200 floats in addition to marchers and vehicles, and covered 1.5 miles in promoting and celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals, among other gender identities. I checked out the event for The Daily Signal, observing the parade and talking with attendees. With a warning that some readers will find...

    7-year-old trans child Milan Tyler won the Los Angeles Pride Parade with a fierce strut in heels on the streets of West Hollywood, California, on June 10. Thousands cheered on participants at this year’s parade for LGBT Pride Month in June, and Tyler received some of the biggest support. “I’m not deciding what my kid wants to wear and how to behave when it comes to the things he likes,” his mother Maggi said. Tyler was born Ryder but recently asked to be called Milan instead. His mother and sister London were asked to attend the parade by Brits...

    This year alone, President Donald Trump has recognized January as National Mentoring Month, March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and April as Second Chance Month. He has already declared the month of June to be National Homeownership Month, National Ocean Month, Great Outdoors Month and National Caribbean-American Heritage Month. But one proclamation is - once again - conspicuously absent from the White House website: LGBTQ Pride Month. LGBTQ Pride Month was first proclaimed by President Bill Clinton in June 1999. President George W. Bush declined to declare June as Pride Month, and it was not until the election of...
