    Gay and lesbian weddings have boosted state and local economies by an estimated $3.8 billion since same-sex marriage was legalized nationwide in the United States in 2015, according to a study published on Thursday. Nearly 300,000 gay and lesbian couples have tied the knot since the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, according to researchers from the Williams Institute at California’s UCLA School of Law. “Marriage equality has changed the lives of same-sex couples and their families,” said the study’s lead author Christy Mallory, state and local policy director at the Williams Institute. “It has also provided...

    A lesbian couple became the first to tie the knot in a ceremony that took place just after the new law came into effect at midnight. The wedding was shown on national TV. President Carlos Alvarado said the law change meant Costa Rica now recognised the rights lesbian and gay people had always deserved. He tweeted (in Spanish) that "empathy and love should from now on be the guiding principles which will allow us to move forward and build a country where there is room for everyone". The first same-sex marriage ceremony was broadcast as the culmination of a three-hour...

    Joe Bob Briggs, the iconic Horror alter-ego of film critic and comedian John Bloom and current host of The Last Drive-In, has become the target of accusations of homophobia, transphobia, and racism from members of the Horror community, with many of the allegations stemming from columns written by Briggs in which he defended free speech and questioned the benefit of the ever expanding ‘LGBT’ acronym.The discourse surrounding Briggs’ character began on May 14th, when Killing Brooke actor and producer Johnny Donaldson published a Medium article which asserted in its headline that “Horror has a Leadership Problem.”In his post, Donaldson claims...
  • Netflix defends packing shows with LGBT ‘representation’: ‘every gay person is very necessary’

    Even in a world as uniformly left wing as Hollywood, Netflix’s wokeness stands out, from leading the pro-abortion mob against Georgia to controversial productions such as The Two Popes. But one of the most pervasive manifestations of the streaming platform’s priorities is its glut of LGBT content. “LGBTQ” is a specific searchable genre, and one 2017 list counted a whopping 57 shows on the platform featuring gay characters. Naturally, not everyone is impressed, as evidenced by this tweet going viral last week: Every damn new series pic.twitter.com/zLJstwiThm— ADAM (@AdamSB___) May 5, 2020 The visual apparently resonated with enough people that...

    A German cannibal who got a life sentence for killing and devouring a man whom he cut into steaks is being treated to police-supervised strolls while wearing a disguise, according to a report. Armin Meiwes — a 58-year-old former computer engineer convicted in 2006 of killing Bernd Brandes after he answered an ad in a gay magazine seeking a “man to slaughter” — dons sunglasses and a cap to mask his identity during the trips, German tabloid Bild reports.

    For many on the LGBT left, stemming from the left more broadly, mocking and attacking Christians seems to be the only thing giving them a sense of purpose during the COVID-19 crisis. While it is normal to see headlines from major LGBT sites blasting Christian leaders and denouncing the “anti-LGBT” religious right, April has been particularly inundated with such articles, especially on the most-followed LGBT news site, LGBTQ Nation. With its 1.5 million followers on Facebook and 163,000 followers on Twitter, LGBTQ Nation holds a great deal of influence among its readers. Here are four of its headlines in the...

    Disney continues to pepper children with the gay agenda, this time with Season 3, Episode 1 of the DuckTales reboot, which airs on Disney Plus and Disney XD. The children’s cartoon introduced Violet’s two gay dads to the show, showing that Disney has no qualms about paving the way for kids to learn about the intricacies of backdoor bufflehead bandits. The show joins other recent Disney properties, such as Beauty and The Beast and Onward, in adding gayness into children’s media in order to normalize the lifestyle.

  • Why is the FDA RELAXING RULES on Blood Donations from Gay and Bisexual Men During a PANDEMIC?

    Old School™ ^ | 4/9/20 | Patrick Rooney
    Last Thursday, the FDA relaxed some of its guidelines, which had previously restricted gay and bisexual men from giving blood. These new rules allow blood donations from men who say that they have abstained from sex with another man for more than three months. For the past several years, gay and bisexual men could not donate blood if they’d had sex with a man in the previous year. The earlier one-year waiting period was attacked as discriminatory and outdated when the FDA introduced it in 2015 to replace a lifetime prohibition on blood donation by gay and bisexual men. The...

    Amid what it’s calling an “urgent need for blood,” the Food and Drug Administration revised its blood donor guidelines on Thursday, significantly easing the restrictions on men who have sex with men. The new guidelines reduce the donation deferral period for sexually active gay and bisexual men from 12 months to three, meaning these otherwise healthy men will now have to abstain from same-sex sexual activity for 90 days before they are eligible to donate blood. Other 12-month deferral periods have also been shortened under the new guidelines, including those for people who have traveled to areas with certain endemic...

    The U.S. government Thursday eased restrictions on blood donations from gay men and other key groups because of a drop in the nation's blood supply triggered by the coronavirus outbreak. The Food and Drug Administration's new policy aims to allow tens of thousands more Americans to give blood, including gay and bisexual men and people with recent tattoos and piercings. "We want and we need healthy people — all healthy people — to give blood," said Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, who announced the changes in a media briefing with the FDA.

    It was a bright, cold day in Oxford and everywhere I looked, rainbow flags flapped and fluttered in the sharp wind. They flew from the ancient colleges along the High Street. They flew from the Town Hall. And what they said to me was ‘Your side has lost. There is nothing you can do about it.’ As I write this, I know that an apprentice Thought Police officer will certainly copy and store my words, to use them against me at some point in the future. The mere act of suggesting that there is anything oppressive about these banners will...

Late Saturday, anti-gun activist David Hogg posted a tweet, saying, “Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic. F**k a National day of prayer

    The chaos of last night’s Nevada caucus continues to ripple into Sunday. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg wants the Democratic Party to do a recount because of so-called irregularities and anomalies at multiple precincts, specifically involving early votes. Via Las Vegas Review-Journal: “Currently our data shows that this is a razor thin margin for second place in Nevada, and due to irregularities and a number of unresolved questions we have raised with the Nevada Democratic Party, it’s unclear what the final results will be,” said Hari Sevugan, Buttigieg’s deputy campaign manager.The Buttigieg campaign asked that the alleged errors...

    Beloved CBS show "Walker, Texas Ranger" is set for a reboot, but some fans may be less than thrilled to hear that the show is also slated to undergo a couple of woke changes. For instance, Sgt.

According to Variety, the new CW show will simply be called "Walker" and will showcase stars Jared Padalecki, Lindsey Morgan, and Keegan Allen. Padalecki, from the CW's "Supernatural," will play the lead as a widower and father with his own moral code who returns to Austin to find...

    The actress Rosario Dawson has come out in a wide-ranging interview touching upon her latest projects, activism and her relationship with former Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker. In the interview with Bustle, Dawson clarified that a 2018 Instagram post about Pride, in which she stated that she was "sending love" to her "fellow LGBTQ+ homies," was mistaken as her coming out. “People kept saying that I [came out] ... I didn’t do that,” she told Bustle. “I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now.” While Dawson did not...
