Thanks for the news about a gay Irish Prime Minister, Daniel.

I have mixed feelings about Gay Trump supporters being cast out of the Charlotte Pride Parade.

Serbia gets its first Lesbian prime minister.   From The Guardian:

"The Serbian president, Aleksandar Vučić, announced on Thursday evening that he was giving Brnabić, a non-party technocrat, the mandate to form a new government, describing her as “hard-working, [with] professional and personal qualities”, the Serbian news agency B92 reported"

Ireland gets its first gay Prime Minister (Taoiseash) - NPR - "The government that I lead will not be one of left or right, because those old divisions don't comprehend the political challenges of today"  He's considered rather conservative.

Not much comes out these days, about about the persecution of gay people in Chechnya.  Must not be all that interesting, compared to US reality-show politics.

Please pardon me if everyone already knows all of this.  I have had a bit of a Rumpelstiltskin life, and didn't even see most of CSI until the series ended after 15 years.

I have been enjoying the book "American Gods" - an interesting book for an atheist to read.  I understand this book has been made into a series on the Starz network, which I don't have access to.  The central concept revolves around gods or godlike entities that emigrated to America along with others from their cultures, and are fading away, to be replaced by modern gods of technology and commerce.

Even though the book is a far stretch from being gay themed, and the author is straight, and the actors are straight, the television series included a gay love and sex scene that was notable for its honesty, explicitness, and for being a scene between a Muslim Arab man and an old Arabic god or Jinn.  I'm not embedding the link because some people might be offended, but it is highly edited, and does not include some visuals that have been described on news sites.  Here is a vignette of that scene.  I thought it was very moving.

Funny, Loren, that's exactly what McEnroe thought.

So professional women's tennis is "full of Lesbians."  Pardon my channeling Stephen Fry, but "SO FUCKING WHAT?!?"

The John McEnroe video didn't work for me; here's a related article:

John McEnroe thinks he knows where Margaret Court’s anti-gay hate c... (GayStarNews)

‘Hold on, she lost to Bobby Riggs and then Billie Jean King beat the sh*t out of Bobby. Now I think I know where that hatred comes from.’
