  • New One Dollar Canadian Coin Features Two Men Kissing

    “A key milestone for lesbian, gay, transgender, queer and two-spirited people.” Canada has unveiled a new one dollar commemorative coin that features two men kissing. The Royal Canadian Mint said the new coin represented “a key milestone for lesbian, gay, transgender, queer and two-spirited people.” Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau insisted that progress in terms of ‘LGBTQ2’ rights was not complete. “They recognize, as we should all recognize, that we are not at the end of this path,” he said. “We have much more to do.” The Royal Canadian Mint has unveiled a new commemorative loonie meant to celebrate "50...

    A new dollar coin designed to commemorate 50 years of homosexual rights has sparked a dual backlash — from both members of Canada's LGBT community and from a social conservative group. The loonie, to be launched April 23 at an invitation-only event in Toronto, will feature a stylized depiction of two overlapping human faces within a large circle, the dates 1969 and 2019, and the word "equality" in English and French. The Royal Canadian Mint is keeping tight-lipped on details until next week's official reveal. York University historian Tom Hooper said the coin commemorates a "myth," since the sweeping changes...

  • San Francisco now has the highest syphilis infection rate in the U.S.

    The city is sitting on a syphilis situation. Buried deep in a report released last month from a national health testing organization is the shocking statistic that San Francisco has the highest rate of syphilis infection of any county in the entire United States. This report is a more detailed, regional breakdown of Centers for Disease Control data from 2017, displaying complete information on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) nationwide. It shows that San Francisco County has by far the highest prevalence of syphilis, with an infection rate more than double that of New York City — which lands at No....

    I spent much of this week reading and trying to absorb the new and devastating book by one Frédéric Martel on the gayness of the hierarchy at the top of the Catholic Church, In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy. It’s a bewildering and vast piece of reporting — Martel interviewed no fewer than “41 cardinals, 52 bishops and monsignori, 45 apostolic nuncios, secretaries of nunciatures or foreign ambassadors, 11 Swiss Guards and over 200 Catholic priests and seminarians.” He conducted more than 1,500 interviews over four years, is quite clear about his sources, and helps the reader...

    A city lawmaker in New York is refusing to apologize for saying that the city government is “controlled by the homosexual community.” Bronx city council member Ruben Diaz Sr., described as a conservative Democrat, made the comment while speaking on the Spanish-language radio program, “El Desahogo," last week, according to The New York Daily News. City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who is gay, and others called for Diaz to apologize over the comment. “The disgraceful and homophobic comments made by Ruben Diaz Sr. don’t reflect this city’s values,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) tweeted on Saturday. “The...

    The Christian publishers of an Australian bridal magazine are closing the publication after they were targeted over their choice not to feature same-sex weddings. White Magazine was started twelve years ago by Luke and Carla Burrell to celebrate love and commitment in marriage, rather than as a marketplace to sell products. The magazine was targeted by LGBTQ activists after it did not feature any same sex couples following the change in the law last year.

    I have always regarded men who make a big deal out of supporting feminist causes as potential exploiters and phonies. When Harvey Weinstein, with his track record of vocal and financial support for pro-abortion groups was accused of extreme abuse of actresses, I was not in the least surprised. While some people are attracted to activism or charity out of pure motives, I have seen enough corruption and hypocrisy to make me suspicious of the motives of every male, especially a showboater who proclaims his love of women’s causes. So, it comes as only a slight surprise to learn that...

    Four years ago, Tim Cook became the first CEO of a major company to come out as gay. He says he's happy about that distinction — and his decision. "I'm very proud of it," the Apple (AAPL) CEO told Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday in an exclusive interview for her program on CNN International and PBS. Being gay is "God's greatest gift to me," he said. Cook came out on October 30, 2014. His sexual orientation had been widely rumored beforehand though he had not confirmed it publicly. "I was public because I started to receive stories from kids who read...
  • "ICYMI":Folsom Street Fair stresses consent amid leather and BDSM(Photos at link, but tamish)

    Organizers of the Folsom Street Fair, San Francisco’s famed fetish festival, took new measures this year to educate attendees — especially sightseers and gawkers — on the subject of consent. “Gear doesn’t mean consent. What you’re wearing doesn’t mean consent. An enthusiastic ‘yes’ means consent,” said Edwin Morales, president of the Folsom Street Events board. For poet Maryann Leilani Wood, 42, “the playground,” a fenced-off area for women as well as transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals, was invaluable. Everyone was welcome in the zone except cis-men, or those who were assigned the male gender at birth and still identify that way.

    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...

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...
