    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 ďshockedĒ upon landing at Birmingham airport and seeing a can of Stella Artois sitting between the pilots. ďThe 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,Ē said Lewis, according to The Metro. ďI turned to my partner Steven, who didnít believe me at first,...

    The Metro ^ | August 10, 2017 | Nikki M. Mascali
    In four years, Black Lives Matter went from a hashtag about social injustice to a full-fledged global civil rights movement. Metro spoke with Patrisse Cullors, who cofounded Black Lives Matter with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi in 2013, about its evolution, fighting racism in the age of Trump, her upcoming memoir and what saying ďall lives matterĒ really means. What is the biggest misconception you find people have about Black Lives Matter? Patrisse Cullors: That we just started a hashtag. That it isnít a sophisticated set of ideas that would lead to a larger strategy to build out, a powerful...

    When they decided to print special collectorsí covers for the magazineís September issue, all about ďicons of changeĒ, the publishers of Elle knew immediately who the stars should be: the actors Kristen Stewart and Amandla Stenberg, both of whom have made headlines for their refusal to conform to traditional notions of sexuality; the singer Zayn Malik, who walked away from One Direction, the biggest pop band in the world, at the height of its fame; and the transgender model Hari Nef. Nefís cover is arguably the most radical of the four. It marks the first time a transgender woman has...

    Mainstream now means teaching LGBT to second-graders. On July 14 the California board of education added LGBT mandates to the stateís new K-12 social studies program, revised for the first time in ten years. This ended a long struggle over school-based Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender studies, playing out for decades inside and outside the state. The San Francisco Chronicle called the event ďa landmark move that puts the ongoing LGBT civil rights fight into the mainstream of public education.Ē The newly adopted state curriculum is ďnot only acknowledging diversity,Ē commented state superintendent of public instruction Tom Torlakson with customary...

Kaeley was fired by the YMCA for standing up against a new policy that opened its bathrooms and locker rooms...

    Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard shocked conservatives Tuesday when he vetoed legislation that would have prohibited students in South Dakota public schools from using opposite-sex restrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities. The decision is a boon for transgender advocates who lobbied the governor to reject the bill, arguing it was discriminatory and would have harmed the emotional well-being of transgender students. Proponents of the legislation contended itís inappropriate to have adolescent boys and girls showering and changing in the same room. ďDo you feel it appropriate for a 13-year-old girl to be exposed to the anatomy of a boy? Or for...

The fact is, Kim Davis was invited to a private meeting with the Pope and did meet privately with him on the afternoon of September 24, during which meeting Pope Francis said to Kim, ďI want to thank...

    Born with female anatomy, Alex had recently begun hormone therapy and decided to fully transition to a male identity. And as he entered his second adolescence, he had decided to rededicate himself to a life as a practicing Muslim. On most days, he returned three times a day for prayer. Alex is aware of media reports that naively heralded Iran as an affirming place for transgender people in the wake of the 1987 decision by the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini allowing gender-reassignment surgery. Iran is now the second-largest center for the procedure behind Thailand, according to some estimates. "Those decisions just...
