cnn report on the Olympics and Russia's discriminatory laws.

International backlash against Russia.

Antigay countries have the most internet searches for gay porn.

With the attention on Russia we don't want to forget other countries where the situation is worse.  76crimes.com

On Jonathan Allen - really moving.  I'm as much of a skeptic as anyone.  I think in a way it doesn't matter.  This young man's parents just got a nation wide, solid, "you folks are assholes!".  Sooner or later I expect they will see that.

In addition, this is yet another validation from pop culture that not only is it OK to be gay, it's definitely not OK to be antigay. 

Lately I keep saying, over and over, I cant believe I lived to see things turn around like they have.  I know it's not universal, and there are many hellholes in the US and around the world.  Also, then pendulum swings, and we don't know what tomorrow will bring.  But in many places, this is a fine moment.

On the Pope's relative moderation on LGBT people....  We'll see.  We'll see.  The church politicians must realize how much they've lost due to their 10th century policies.  I truly doubt it's because of someone's change of heart.

Welcome Krizina!

Hi Krizina.  Welcome!  It's nice to have you join us. 

What's the situation like regarding both LBGTQI and atheist people in Nepal?

The pope, speaking about The Gays:  "We shouldn't marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society," Francis said.

I hate to break it to him, but we're already a part of society.   What a pathetic, freakin' moron.  Perhaps he should leave the Middle Ages and join our society here in the 21st Century.

You know, there seem to be so many of these videos from talent shows that have the same general theme:  the unlikely, unassuming, homely, sad-story individual gets on stage and wows the crowd with their amazing talent.   These videos are wonderful to watch and quite moving.  However I have to admit that after seeing so many similar videos in the same vein as the infamous Susan Boyle performance a few years ago, the skeptic in me is now wondering at this point if some of these stories are manufactured or embellished just for dramatic effect.  We all know, and it's no secret, how unreal and staged reality television has become.  I personally don't watch any of these talent shows, but I hope the stories are as genuine as the talent.

George, nice to see you here!

Russia is becoming the next place not-to-be-gay.  It sucks.  The examples and tone set by the so-called leadership, are reflected in the behavior of the followers.

Russian Neo-Nazis Allegedly Lure, Torture Gay Teens With Online Dat...

A neo-Nazi group in Russia has apparently enacted a disturbing campaign against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth by allegedly using a popular social network to lure in victims and torture them.

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on July 21, 2013 at 9:32pm

Russia arrested 3 Dutch tourists for violating the antigay "propaganda" law. " If convicted of the law, the three people could be heavily fined, held for up to 14 days in Russian prison and then deported back to the Netherlands"

A courageous gay couple in Tupelo Mississippi applied for marriage.  They expected to be turned down.  Doubtless, it's a first step toward building a court case.  I say courageous because being openly gay in Mississippi can still get you brutally murdered.
