Just added a coming out story, I think a happy one.

No surprise there, Ruth, about Jeff Sessions.  Such a deplorable man.  

A few weeks ago, something prompted me to watch a "coming out" video on YouTube (of which there are many.)  That led me to spending the past few weeks perusing the coming out stories of many others.  Some are sad, many have happy endings, some are funny, and some will make your heart ache with pain and bring you to tears.  

It's that last category which is riddled of stories involving hate speech, bullying, disownment, suicide attempts, being told you are less than human, and that your existence doesn't matter.

To have someone like Jeff Sessions as head of the bully pulpit of justice and equality is such an anathema to the concept humanity itself.  His presence does real and true damage to individuals who are now facing the same horrid situations as those in so many coming out videos.

Thanks for the news about Gambia, Daniel. On the home front things reversed fast.

A few weeks ago: President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community.”

Now under Jeff Sessions,

The DOJ announced last week they will no longer challenge the infamous “bathroom bills” blocking transgender students from using the facilities that align with their gender identity.

Slap upside the head for the LGBT community!

Great UK news, Daniel!

I'm also glad the Denier-in-Chief isn't going to persecute us as much as his ChristoFascist buddies want.

This must be pissing off a passel of religionists:

White House: Trump will enforce LGBTQ workplace protections
BY KYLE BALLUCK - 01/31/17

[The Hill]

The White House said early Tuesday that President Trump will continue to enforce an Obama-era executive order protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community in the workplace.

“President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” said a statement from his press secretary’s office. “President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”

The administration said Trump is proud to have been the first GOP presidential nominee to mention the LGBTQ community in his acceptance speech, “pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.”

Thanks for posting that, Carl. Clearly the Christo-NAZIs are on the rise. Make American straight again.

If this is true, it's very troubling to say the least.

Rumored Anti-LGBT Executive Order Coming from Trump This Week

If you recall, the Indian law against gay sex was repealed in 2009 but then reinstated by the Supreme Court in 2013 after pressure from religious groups.
