    A TV adaptation of Batwoman is to become the first live-action superhero series with an openly gay lead character. The show is being developed for the US channel, the CW, adding to the network's collection of shows based on DC comics characters. Batwoman was introduced in the 1950s as a love interest for Batman to dispel rumours of his own homosexuality. The character was reintroduced in 2006 as a gay woman called Kate Kane. She has since become the highest-profile openly gay character of any DC comic. The show's synopsis describes Kate Kane as an "out lesbian and highly trained...

    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...
  • World Cup 2018: Smuggling the Pride flag into Russia

    Six LGBT activists have found a way to fly the Pride flag in Russia - by wearing football shirts in the rainbow colours. The country has had a law banning the spreading of "gay propaganda" among under-18s since 2013. The Pride flag is a symbol celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, but displaying it in Russia can get you arrested. The group got together and wore their nations' football tops around Moscow. It meant the shirts of Spain, the Netherlands (who weren't in the World Cup), Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Colombia collectively made the colours of the stripes of...

    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...

    The DC Universe recently was making news headlines because after half of century of costumed foreplay, Bruce Wayne proposed to Selina Kyle and the two were supposed to get married… but you know, it’s Batman, so things didn’t quite turn out as planned. Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe is now making headlines for a proposal and a wedding, but mainly because it’s a lesbian relationship being depicted on a kid’s show. As is standard with most Leftist agendas, the news was made to trend on social media and was quickly picked up by most Left-leaning media outlets. The event unraveled in...
  • 'Gay conversion therapy' to be banned as part of LGBT equality plan in UK

    Controversial "gay conversion therapies" are to be banned as part of a government plan to improve the lives of gay and transgender people. A national survey of 108,000 members of the LGBT community suggested 2% have undergone the practice with another 5% having been offered it. It also found more than two-thirds of LGBT people avoid holding hands in public, for fear of negative reactions. The prime minister said nobody "should ever have to hide who they are". A 75-point plan to improve the lives of LGBT people, costing £4.5m, has been produced in response to the survey. It includes...

    ENGLAND’S ‘stately homo’, Quentin Crisp, once said that “if you simply wait long enough in this life, you will find yourselves having travelled from the outskirts of acceptability to the very heart of society”. Dublin’s public face confirmed the truth of that statement this weekend. Government Buildings glowed with the rainbow colours. The tech firms around the ‘silicon docks’ had swathed themselves in Prideful slogans such as ‘love is love’ — most of them had floats in the parade. And, of course, the pubs in town had bedazzled themselves with glitter, rainbow bunting and phrases like ‘yas queen’. The hordes...

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star Daniella Pineda says her character in the film is gay - not that you would know from watching it. She told Build that the line with the reveal was cut from the movie "for the sake of time". In the scene, she's talking to Chris Pratt's character. "I look at Chris and I'm like: 'Square jaw, good bone structure, tall, muscles - I don't date men, but if I did, it would be you'," she said. Daniella continued: "I love that I'm looking at Chris Pratt, like the hottest guy in the world and I'm...

    Olly Alexander and Jade Thirlwall are among people who have expressed anger over Instagram taking down a photo of two men kissing. The photo was removed from photographer Stella Asia Consonni's Instagram feed for "violating community guidelines". Instagram says the photo was removed by mistake. "This post was removed in error and we are sorry. It has since been reinstated," says a spokesperson for Instagram. London-based photographer Stella posted the photo on Saturday 30 June and she later spoke about the photo being removed in her Instastory. The photo featured two men - Jordan Bowen and Luca Lucifer - and...

    After the media decided to take Marvel executives to task for not having enough LGBTQIA representation in their live-action films, Marvel Studios runner Kevin Feige was pressured into confirming that there will be more out and about characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a means of attempting to assuage the Rainbow Reich. Speaking with The Playlist, the outlet practically coerced Feige into confirming that LGBTQ heroes or heroines will be featured in upcoming movies after they complained that Ant-Man and The Wasp didn’t feature any flamboyantly gay characters, with the outlet writing…. “The context for the interview was for...

    The bigotry of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission earned it a spanking from the United States Supreme Court ... A born-again Christian named Jack Phillips ran a bakery. Aware of Phillips' heartfelt religious beliefs, a gay couple demanded that he violate those beliefs by designing and creating an artistic cake to celebrate their marriage. This was even before Colorado had legalized gay marriage. Phillips politely told the couple that they were welcome in his bakery and that he would be happy to sell them anything off-the-shelf. But he could not violate his faith. He even offered to find them an...

    I've been using Bing for a few years now, since I finally got sick of Google's endless parade of commie-celebrating "art". Bing was always nicely photographic, usually just nature and points of interest. But today, its POI is a Minneapolis bridge with "pride" multi-colors on it. (And yes, they do describe their pix, so it's on there specifically.)

    It's not unusual for a writer to dedicate a book to their parents - but for Garrard Conley to have dedicated Boy Erased to his mother and father and thanked them in the acknowledgements is more surprising, given that it is all about what they put him through. They are the ones who told him he had to go through "gay conversion therapy" or leave the family forever. Conley had been outed to his parents by his rapist after being assaulted in college. But, to his Baptist preacher father and his mother, the crime was in him being gay. They...

    New Hampshire’s Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed into law on Friday a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors. Medical and mental health professionals — including the American Medical Association — say the practice to change a minor's sexual orientation or gender identity is proven to be ineffective and can cause psychological harm to LGBTQ youth. “Discrimination — in any form — is unacceptable and runs contrary to New Hampshire’s Live Free or Die Spirit,” Sununu said in a statement, as reported by WMUR. “If we really want to be the ‘Live Free or Die’ state, we must ensure that...

    With Parkland high school graduate David Hogg expected to announce a 60-day, 20-state, 75-stop summer bus tour Monday to push for more stringent gun control laws and to register young people to vote, the 18-year-old found himself facing another daunting challenge that could break the internet if he accepts. Kaitlin Bennett, the Kent State grad who took the internet by storm recently when she posed on campus with an AR-10 strapped across her back, took to social media to challenge Hogg to an arm wrestling contest.

    The FAI gets a lot of slack – and maybe rightly so – but they deserve a lot of credit for making a statement in their latest move. On Friday, the Irish soccer's governing body announced that the Republic of Ireland players will wear jerseys sporting the LGBT rainbow flag when they face the United States at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday night. The numbers on the back of each Ireland player's top will feature rainbow colours as opposed to the traditional white. The FAI posted an image on Twitter showing the number 4 jersey of John O'Shea, Ireland's defensive...

    At Vatican Insider I spotted something interesting. Each Spring the Italian bishops have a plenary meeting at the Vatican’s Paul VI hall, in the smaller hall where the Synod usually meets. The Pope attends at least part of the meeting. This year was no exception. This year the Pope told them… my fast translation from the Italian original: “If there’s a doubt about homosexuality, it’s better not to have them enter the seminary.” The words of the Pope in the closed door session with the Italian bishops: “Discernment is needed”. Reaffirmed what was in the Vatican documents of 2005 and...

    The number of Hollywood films featuring LGBTQ characters plummeted nearly 40 percent in 2017 compared to the year prior, an annual survey of the major movie studios by GLAAD said on Tuesday. The group found that just 14 wide releases from the majors, as well as offerings from their indie divisions, were inclusive of queer identities in 2017, a drop from 23 films in 2016. Only 12.8 percent of studio films contained characters who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or queer — the lowest percentage of LGBTQ-inclusive major studio releases since GLAAD began tracking in 2012. Trans characters were absent...
