Trump administration wants Supreme Court to take up transgender military ban now – NBC News

When the asshole who is in the White House was running for president he kept saying how much he loves the gays he said it over and over again. It’s why he is gotten the moniker of Liar in Chief.

He doesn’t want people to get any rights other than the ones who voted for him. He doesn’t care about the 60% of the United States did not vote for him. Look what he’s doing to California. He is a disgrace and I wish the network’s would stop covering every morsel that comes out of that man’s hole in his face. I’m sorry I usually I’m not this angry but this is beyond the pale.

The Israeli military was one of the first to allow gays lesbians and transgender to be in their military. Nobody can say that the Israeli military is weaker for it. As a matter of fact the statistics show that militaries that are inclusive have a better moral and longer stays in the military. Our own pentagon is not in favor of this. The Tangerine nightmare in the White House is playing to his base and stirring up anti-gay sentiments in those 40% that voted for him. Shame on him.

Michelle Obama reveals she snuck out of White House to celebrate gay marriage ruling – NBC News

I cannot express in words how much I miss the Obamas in the White House.

As a gay American when we got the right to get married it was one of the happiest days I’ve ever had. It’s bittersweet for me, I’ll be 65 in April and my chances of getting married are very low. People ask me why I never had children, in the years that I would have wanted to adopt a child it was illegal for me to do so. It’s amazing how a government can change your life. I don’t regret anything but I’ve got to be honest to say that it would have been nice to have more of a family around me. I live alone in Los Angeles and my closest relative his in France.

bravo to Michelle Obama for being so open in her book. I ordered you to buy it.

A banner year for LGBT candidates got even stronger with Kyrsten Sinema’s Senate win – The Washington Post

There are a lot of great organizations out there but there’s one that stands out to me in the LGBT political community. It’s the victory fund. The victory fund rooms people for public office. It’s not just a matter of wanting to run its knowing how to run for public office that’s a key to getting elected. I have a funny story about the victory fund. When I was living in Miami I was the chair of a fundraiser for the victory funds. They’re director of the elephant who was their first was a young guy and he put out 1000 posters on South Beach saying that named Alien Berrebi instead of Alain Berrebi. My friends left about that for months afterwards. But it was a great fundraiser and I hoped that I helped in a little way back then.

It’s wonderful to see the progress that the lgbtq community has had and I look forward to even more representation.

Trans advocacy groups protest in front of White House – TheHill

What I find so infuriating about this Administration is it’s lack of continuity. For example, I am not a great believer in how Pope Francis things the world should be. But his views are consistent. He is pro-life, but pro-life doesn’t end at conception and should follow the child through his or her education and then into adulthood. Pro-life memes being against capital punishment. So, why am I saying this now? I don’t believe and many of the things the Pope says but at least he’s consistent.

This is a White House that does not believe in science. It is looking upon our country becoming a giant sewer thanks to their deregulations. Look at Florida, my former home, with several shades of different Tides hitting both seawater and inner canals. This white house doesn’t believe in climate change. And yet when it’s convenient the White House pulls up fake science. There are no genetic markers for transgender or homosexuality or sexual orientation based tests. And now they want to put into law that if you want to be considered a different sex you must take a genetic test to prove that. What hogwash. I am so tired of listening to this white house and how they are devolving our country. I won’t say that cretin’s name anymore.

SCOTUS punts in another fight over denial of services for same-sex wedding – POLITICO

Elections matter.

The right got it’s vote on the Supreme Court and now we’re watching our rights be chipped away at. First it will be the lgbtq Community, then it will be immigrants, then will be the African-American community and the Latino Community because the Supreme Court is going after communities that are either inherently this light by a large swath of the population or cannot fight for themselves. Shame on the Supreme Court. Shame on this White House. This is not America anymore this is Trump land and it’s disgusting.

Remember when Trump said that the lgbtq community would love him, well I guess that’s one of his 5800 lies since he’s been in office for the last 500 Days.

Supreme Court rules narrowly for baker who refused to make cake for same-sex couple – LA Times

This ruling is not the end of the world for Gay and Lesbian rights in our country. I don’t believe it’s a good ruling but it is now the law of the land.

Here is what is important, telling your boss in Most states in this country that you are going to get married to someone of the same sex opens you to being fired for no calls. There are no protections for the lgbtq community regarding employment.

When I tell people this they say oh no that can’t be right there is always been protections for everyone and when I explain to them that there are no National protections for the lgbtq community they do not believe me. But in fact it’s the truth and until we have laws protecting us from this form of discrimination we are still not in any way shape or form equal to everyone else.

Civil Rights Act Protects Gay Workers, Appeals Court Rules – The New York Times

Two points in this case makes me feel like I’m in an alternate universe.

First, the justice department is fighting against gay rights. That’s completely unbelievable. Jeff Sessions must be in seventh heaven. And at least I did spell his name correctly.

Seconds, the case itself is so preposterous that anyone would bring a cause of action for what happens here. The gentleman in question is a skydiving instructor. His name is Donald Zarda. While skydiving with a young lady who seem to be very nervous about being so strapped to a man he told told her don’t worry I’m 100% gay. She told her boyfriend and he sued. Amazing

Because there are so many lawsuits with so many different fact patterns that have been tendered to the Supreme Court many observers believe that the Supreme Court will have to make a decision one way or the other. I fear that with one more Supreme Court Justice picked by 45, the LGBTQ community could be put in the back of the bus.

One more thing, anybody, anybody who thought that they could not vote for Hillary must not look in the mirror and see what they have brought on us.

Donald Trump Says He’ll Protect LGBTQ People. But Who Will Protect Us From Him? -Slate.com 

In an article in the New York Times it is reported that when John Kasich was asked to be Donald Trump’s running mate he was told that he would be in charge of both domestic and foreign policy. When asked what would Trump do you they replied “Make America great again”.

So if that’s the template for how the White House under Trump would run then we have one of the most Anti gay individuals running the White House in Mike Pence. He is for dangerous and cruel so-called “Gay conversion therapy”, he wants marriage equality to be banned, he is against transgender bathroom bills, basically wants to take us back to the 1950s. If that’s what Trump thanks making America great again is I’m afraid of what he’s going to do with the rest of the issues that a president has to deal with.

Cuomo Bans Most State Travel To NC Over Transgender Bathroom Bill«CBS

I have to disagree with the headline of this story. This is not just about transgender bathroom rights but about LGBTQ rights in North Carolina. I applaud Governor Cuomo for his courageous stance and hope other state leaders will follow his suit.
