JRFord-1600x900JR Ford, a concerned dad of a trans daughter, writes: “Every time we let any hate speech fester without rebuke, we perpetuate a future where kids and adults like my own child could be the next target for violence merely for catching the eye of a man so insecure in themselves that they would resort to violence because of attraction ... We cannot treat that daily threat of violence as normal.”

WIDGETNewsweek: Sobering history lesson — how Europe almost liberated its LGBTQ citizens ... just before reversing course and trying to exterminate them.

Far be it from me to want to turn to fascism, but all the same, we have to agree that in some things those regimes have sometimes done good … One day Hitler and Mussolini woke up and said, “Honestly, the scandal has gone on long enough” …And … the inverts … were chased out of Germany and Italy the very next day. — Newsweek

WIDGETPink News: Karar Noshi, an aspiring actor from Iraq, was reportedly abducted and murdered for looking too gay.

Karar-noshi-4_640x345_acf_croppedNoshi called his photos “cinematic works of art, which I pride myself on.”

#IDAHO: Never Forget Sean Kennedy Comments (0)

Via Gay Star News: Today is #IDAHO — International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia — and it is also the tenth anniversary of the senseless killing of Sean Kennedy, a 20-year-old gay man.

Sean was leaving a straight bar when he was asked for a cigarette by a guy in a parked car. He generously complied, then was gay-bashed by a guy in the backseat of the car, Stephen Andrew Moller. Moller struck Kennedy so hard it separated Kennedy's brain from the brain stem. Kennedy went down, hitting his head and sustaining further injuries, of which he would die 17 hours later — brain dead for no reason at all.

Moller called a mutual friend of theirs after he attack. His voicemail message is that of a sociopath:

Hey, I was just wondering how your boyfriend’s feeling right about now [laughter]. The fucking faggot … Yeah boy, your boy is knocked out, man. The motherfucker. Tell him he owes me $500 for breaking my goddamn hand on his teeth, that fucking bitch.

Moller later claimed he had no idea Kennedy was gay.

Moller would serve less than one year for taking Kennedy's life, but the murder helped push hate-crimes legislation, a cause Kennedy's mom advocated for until her own health curtailed some of her activities.

This was 10 years ago — what has changed?
