  • Ruby Rose Exits the CW’s ‘Batwoman’, DC Series To Recast Iconic Lead Role For Season 2

    This is a shocker: Ruby Rose, the star of the CW’s freshman drama series Batwoman, is leaving the Warner Bros. TV/Berlanti Prods. drama after one season. The series, which already has been renewed for a second season, will continue with the title role getting recast. “I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season,” Rose said in a statement “This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles.” Neither Rose, nor the Batwoman...

    Judge Chatigny has a track record of favoring sexual predators over women and children. Now this same judge is prejudicing the case against female athletes by imposing a speech code on their counsel. The year was 2010. President Barack Obama was in office, and Democrats controlled the Senate. Obama could practically get any judge he wanted, but he could not get his nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, Robert Chatigny, confirmed based on ChatignyÂ’s track record of favoring sexual predators over women and children. Now this same judge is prejudicing the case against female athletes...

    ... The acting director of national intelligence (Richard Grenell) has decided that it's time for America to stop sharing information with countries who aren't as pro-LGBT as he is -- a view that's eerily similar to Hillary Clinton's State Department, where ideological blackmail was the order of every day. Instead, reverting to the cultural imperialism of the Obama years, he'd rather strong-arm countries -- putting national security on the line in the process... ..."I am not a seat warmer," Grenell warned. "The president asked me to do a job, and I am going to do the job to the best...

    Alyx Irving, 18, first started spending time at Affirmations, an LGBTQ community center in the Detroit suburb of Ferndale, Mich., three years ago, when his gay older brother brought him along. It soon became his second home. “I’m usually there all the time,” Irving tells Yahoo Life. “It’s a joke between everyone that I actually live there.” It was at the community center and through its support groups that the teen, who identifies as genderqueer, found the acceptance he does not have at home. “There are a lot of really warmhearted, supportive people, and it’s a place where you can...

    Excerpt: "San Antonio should prioritize the needs of those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by focusing response and recovery efforts in low-income communities, communities of color (Latinx/Hispanic, Black/African American, Indigenous and Native, Asian/Pacific Islander, etc.), and LGBTQIA+ communities. This is an intersectional strategy that ensures that all who are highest risk are reached, including people with disabilities, the medically vulnerable, low wage frontline workers, imprisoned individuals, housing insecure individuals, seniors, and many others., as when these individuals are also low-income and/or from communities of color they are the most at risk.

    A protester donning a pink suit and bandana mask was arrested Sunday afternoon at a COVID-19 field hospital in New York City's Central Park that is being run by an evangelical group whose leader has a long history of anti-LGBTQ beliefs. “They have no business being in New York City,” the protester, William Talen, 69, shouted as six New York City Police Department officers, one of whom appeared to be carrying Talen’s rainbow flag, removed him from the park. “They are the virus.” The 68-bed field hospital is run by Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical Christian humanitarian organization run by Franklin...

    For as long as he can remember, Jaceon Cornado has dreamed of having a flat chest. When he turned 18 in the spring of 2017, the transgender teen eagerly started planning his surgical transition. "This surgery is something I need to continue to get up in the mornings every day," Cornado told NBC News. Just six months after his 18th birthday — and a year after the Obama administration lifted the transgender military ban (which would later be reversed by the Trump administration) — Cornado joined the U.S. Army in a combat role. He decided to surgically transition while in...

    For transgender and gender non-conforming people, gender-affirming surgeries are life-altering procedures, which, for many, can greatly reduce gender dysphoria and improve their quality of life. But in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, trans communities on Reddit and Twitter are being flooded with reports of postponed and canceled surgeries in the U.S., U.K., Spain, Thailand, and elsewhere, leading to enormous stress and disappointment on top of a global health crisis.

    The Arizona House of Representatives narrowly passed a bill that, if enacted, would bar trans-identified athletes from competing in girls' sports. On Tuesday, the House approved House Bill 2706, also known as the “Save Women’s Sports Act,” in a vote of 31 to 29. Sponsored by 23 Republican legislators, the bill would require any interscholastic and intramural sports overseen by schools to designate boys' and girls' sports on the basis of biological sex. “Athletic teams or sports designated for females, women or girls may not be open to students of the male sex,” reads HB 2706 in part. “If disputed,...

    It seems so long ago that the first openly gay candidate won the Iowa caucuses. Mere weeks later, the Pete Buttigieg campaign is now past tense, as the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced Sunday that he was dropping out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Wherever that leaves Buttigieg and his future political prospects — or any future LGBTQ candidate — this moment affords us an opportunity to ask ourselves where the nation as a whole really is in terms of acceptance of LGBTQ candidates. To be clear, I’m not arguing that Buttigieg was unsuccessful only...

MINNEAPOLIS, February 25, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― An LGBT activist priest told an audience in a dissident Catholic parish that Pope Francis supports his LGBT ministry and that the pontiff wants the Church to “move on” from its fight against abortion.  Fr.

    Garden State Equality claims its curriculum is for the good and safety of vulnerable children. Its teachings, however, result in the exact opposite. A little more than a year ago, the New Jersey Legislature passed, and Gov. Phil Murphy signed, a law mandating the teaching of LGBT subject matter in public school curriculum, beginning in 2020-21.In response to the law, the activist group Garden State Equality has prepared a curriculum, currently piloted in 12 New Jersey schools and planned to be employed statewide in the fall. This is consistent with Murphy’s vision. At Garden State Equality’s 2019 Ball, he said,...

    I’m writing more in anger than in sadness. As holder of an Eagle Scout badge, I went through the sadness stage back in 2013 when the Boy Scouts board caved to the LGBTQ lobby. Well, okay, I was pretty angry then, too, watching the saboteurs within and without the organization systematically undermine it in the name of “tolerance.” It didn’t matter that the Scouts won all their court battles, including at the Supreme Court, to maintain their moral standards. The saboteurs were intent on ending the Scouts’ common-sense, existentially necessary exclusion of boys who sexually desire males. And that was...

    “Hi, I’m Arielle, I’m a lesbian and I don’t think gender is a social construct. I don’t think cis-straight white men are evil. I don’t believe that general preferences are transphobic or that there are 97 genders.” “I don’t think that male sex offenders belong in women’s prisons. I don’t think it’s normal for people to be praised for walking around with shirts that say, ‘Kill TERFs.” They’re particularly concerned about a loud subset of the LGBT community that’s been trying to argue that biological men who purport to be transgender women have the “right” to compete in women’s sports...

    The internet is not laughing after 50 Cent made a joke about Dwyane Wade‘s transgender daughter, Zaya. The “Power” producer shared a meme on Sunday that featured an image of Wade, 38, and R. Kelly during New York Fashion Week in 2016. A talk bubble above Kelly reads, “Heard you had a daughter now,” while one above the former NBA star reads, “U touch her I’ll kill ya.” “LOL NOW THIS SOME FUNNY S–T,” 50 Cent, 44, captioned the post. Kelly, 53, has been accused of sexually abusing several minors. He also faces racketeering, sex-trafficking and bribery charges in Brooklyn...

After losing his legal appeal to stop the process in January, Rob (previously anonymized as “Clark” or “CD”) is making a desperate attempt to bring his case into the courts of public opinion, even though it breaks a court order demanding his silence about the case.“I had a perfectly healthy child a year ago, and that perfectly healthy child has been altered and destroyed for absolutely no good...
