Trump's Latest 180 — FINE With Same-Sex Marriage Comments (0)

Trump campaigned on, in part, absolutely overturning SCOTUS's decision on same-sex marriage.

Here he is on the topic back in February 2016, when he was courting religious nuts:

I think [Evangelicals] can trust me on traditional marriage… and frankly, I was very much in favor of having the court rule that it goes to states, and let the states decide. And that was a shocking decision for you and for me and for a lot of other people, but I was very much in favor of letting the states decide and that’s the way it looked it was going and then all of a sudden out of nowhere came this very massive decision and they took it away. But I was always in favor of state’s rights; states deciding.

Many issues—not just this, but many issues.

In tonight's 60 Minutes interview, he blew off the issue entirely referring to it as settled and to his opinion on the matter as “irrelevant.”

This is, of course, good news. However, it is another example of the fact that he had no compunction about totally lying, saying anything he needed to say in order to get elected.

More importantly, he is not the decider! The Republican-led House and Senate are the ones who will be cooking up bills and laws and setting the agenda regarding LGBTQ issues. And they will be able to do that with him as president far more effectively than they would have been able to otherwise.

In the same 60 Minutes piece, he was wishy-washy on Roe v. Wade and on another right-wing goal: The prosecution (for what?!) of Hillary Clinton.

OUT100 & About Comments (0)

I went to the OUT100 party in NYC last night, a bash meant to celebrate the magazine's annual list of 100 influential LGBTQ+ people.

I didn't have the energy to do red-carpet coverage, as I have at times; I could live without doing another red carpet for the rest of my life. This week has been draining, too. Additionally, I have been upset with Out recently for its, in my opinion, unnecessarily deferential piece on right-wing agitator Milo Yiannopoulous, who was given a dedicated photo shoot that suggested he was merely a clown. He's worse.

But I went and it was relatively nice to be surrounded by—as my friend called it—brethren. (Forgive the male lean.)

The party was smaller than usual, and I didn't spot stars. Was sorry to realize later that I missed Joanna Cassidy, among others.

The sad part was everyone had stories about family, friends and co-workers who had voted for Trump and who said they weren't against gay people, but ...

Then as I was leaving, a black SUV with the alarming vanity license A ARYAN picked up some of the people from the event. I have to believe it was a hired ride and that there was no connection, but seeing that after hearing stories that have popped up about kids and others attacking people for being gay or of color in Trump's wake was eerie.

I also witnessed a white Wall Street type being extra-rude to an Indian clerk at the 7-11 on my block, annoyed that the guy's accent seemed to slow his ability to quickly retrieve a favored brand of cigarettes. I wasn't dreaming, because as I walked home, the Wall Street type's female companion shouted WHAT? and stopped walking with him. He kept going and cockily called back, C'mon, we're not kids. Her response was, Do you realize women bleed to death from illegal abortions? Literally bleed to death?

I'd also heard a well-heeled black women telling a friend, Well, Trump's a New Yorker, I really don't believe he ... And the rest, unheard, was obvious.

I don't know if Trump despises gay people, though it's a safe bet he has a macho disdain for us. (Ask Roy Cohn how he feels about gays with HIV.) But I don't care. I'm not trying to determine if he is anti-gay, I already know he has no choice but to do anti-gay things to please his constituency.

So that was my night, and that is why the very nice party felt very, very somber.

6-PACK/politics — Bernie Won't Bow To Trump + Faithless Electors, Can You Hear Me? + Addressing Climate Change Is Over + Jake Arrieta Only LOOKS Hot + Percentages Of People Who Went For Trump & Should Not Have + Anti-LGBTQ Wave Begins Comments (0)

*widget boy cultureABOVE: I like Bernie's tone better than Obama's (which, to be fair, is required) regarding Trump.

*widget boy cultureAn appeal to electors—just try faithlessness. You'll like it. Promise.

*widget boy cultureIt's GAME OVER on doing anything about climate change. We'll just have to see if we die.

*widget boy cultureJake Arrieta, who once seemed so hot, now seems like another white supremacist-enabler.

*widget boy cultureSome bright spots from the election. (There were some!) Some dark spots—crossovers who went Trump.

*widget boy cultureGay people who went for Trump support their sworn enemies—like these anonymous jackals.

Hillary Grants Exclusive Q&A To LGBTQ Paper THE WASHINGTON BLADE Comments (0)

In an exclusive Q&A with the Washington Blade, Hillary Clinton has forcefully asserted her commitment to LGBTQ issues and rights, and deflected criticism that the Clinton Foundation accepts monies from anti-LGBTQ countries.

On the passage of an Equality Act:

As President, I’ll make fighting discrimination against the LGBT community a top priority – including by working with Congress to pass the Equality Act. And we won’t stop there. We’ll also take on harassment, bullying, and violence – and youth homelessness, which disproportionately hurts LGBT kids. We’ll end the harmful practice of so-called “conversion” therapy for minors, because LGBT kids don’t need to be “cured” of anything. And we’ll bring people together to reform our gun laws and keep guns from falling into the wrong hands, so that what happened at Pulse never happens again. All of these things are part of my vision for a hopeful, inclusive America where everyone counts, and everyone has a place.

On the Clinton Foundation dealing with Saudi Arabia:

 I am so proud of the work the Clinton Foundation has done on behalf of vulnerable people all across the world – especially the work to combat HIV and AIDS, an epidemic that disproportionately impacts LGBT communities around the globe. Due to the work of the Clinton Foundation, 11.5 million people in the developing world have access to HIV medication at 90 percent lower cost. That’s more than half of all adults and ¾ of all children receiving treatment today.

I’ve always believed that we shouldn’t shy away from confronting human rights abuses around the world – against LGBT people or anyone else. That’s why, as Secretary of State, I actively stood up to these countries and have advocated for the rights of many, including declaring that “gay rights are human rights,” and made advancing the rights of LGBT people around the world a cornerstone of our foreign policy, including advocating for the first ever United Nations resolution on LGBT rights. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has conducted business deals worth millions of dollars in or with some of these countries and has done it for the sole purpose of padding his own pockets.

Here’s the bottom line: As your president, I will continue to fight for LGBT rights here in the United States and around the globe.

Susan Rice To LGBTQ People: WE HEAR YOU. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU. Comments (0)

Nat'l. Security Advisor Susan Rice asserted the U.S will continue to support LGBTQ people worldwide. In a speech given at American University, Rice stated:

A decade ago, nearly half the countries in the world—92 nations—criminalized same-sex relationships. As of last year, that's down to 75 countries—still far too high. Anti-LGBT laws are being challenged and lifted, from Mozambique to Belize. The United States is one of nearly two dozen countries with marriage equality.

Nepal's new constitution is the first in Asia to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. A surge of openly LGBT politicians are being elected, including the prime minister of Luxembourg and transgender legislators in Venezuela and the Philippines. Boisterous Pride parades are appearing in rather unexpected places, like Kiev and Taipei.

Even better, she wrapped her speech with this touching sentiment:

Somewhere in the world right now, there is a young boy lying awake at night guarding a secret he has kept for as long as he can remember. Somewhere, there is a young woman who can love both men and women and has nobody to tell her that's OK. Somewhere, in the United States, there is a man who has always felt like a stranger in his own body ... To every person who might still be struggling with who they are, trying to reconcile who they love with the faith or traditions they love, know this: We see you. We hear you. We are here for you.
