Federal Appeals Court: 1964 Civil Rights Act Applies To LGBTQ People Comments (0)

Via the AP: A federal appeals court in Chicago has ruled that the Civil Rights Act applies to gay people, too, which is the first time any court has made this finding.

Greg Nevins, Employment Fairness Program Director for Lambda Legal, said:

This decision is game changer for lesbian and gay employees facing discrimination in the workplace and sends a clear message to employers: it is against the law to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.

Next stop? SCOTUS.

Get Off The Bus: NOM's Anti-Trans Bus Encounters Some Common-Sense Speed Bumps Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-04-03 at 10.35.11 AMExactly this (Video still)

Via Joe.My.God.: I spotted my friend Mike Hisey in NOM's footage of what happened when its anti-trans bus rolled into Philly Saturday.

Mike is hard to miss, as the nun driver of a minibus, middle fingers extended to God. Mike's bus cleverly mimicked NOM's unclever bus

Per the Philly Inquirer:

A peaceful rally in support of transgender people turned into a disruptive protest in Center City at about noon Saturday when an orange bus bearing anti-transgender messages on it -- "Boys are boys... and always will be" and "Girls are girls... and always will be" -- rolled around onto the north side of City Hall.

The transgender-rights supporters expected the bus to arrive sometime Saturday but didn't know what time it was going to show up. Backed by conservative groups, the bus had been touring East Coast cities for the past couple of weeks.

In anticipation of the bus, the city's Office of LGBT Affairs and other groups organized a "Pop-Up Love Party" on the north apron of City Hall from 11 a.m. to noon, during which supporters of the transgender community spoke, around 100 people gathered in support, and a light-blue-pink-and-white-striped transgender-pride flag was hoisted up on a flagpole at the end of the event. The flag will remain there for the weekend.

Moments after the speakers finished, the bus turned the corner and appeared.

"There it is!" one person shouted. Swarms of people then ran toward the bus. A person banged on a drum. Eggs were thrown, hitting the bus. At least two smoke bombs were set off.

This fucking NOM bus deserves to be harassed anywhere it goes. Free speech doesn't mean you get to talk trash and rile up hatred without enduring the consequences.

Mila Jam's Soaring LGBTQ Anthem FACES β€” They Belong! Comments (0)

Happy International Trans Day of Visibility!

Mila Jam, a trans musician and superstar-in-the-making, just released the uplifting song β€œFaces,” Unnamedwhich is a bona fide LGBTQ anthem.

Better yet, in an age when we're all unapologetic narcissists, she steps aside and allows countless familiar (Candis Cayne! Laverne Cox! Ari Gold! Tituss Burgess!) and otherwise faces to take over her music video for the track β€” you gotta watch. It's that happy feeling you get when you show up at your first gay-pride parade and see the sheer numbers and diversity of the other people like and semi-like you who showed up, too.

From a press release, Mila says:

β€œFaces” is about looking in that mirror and hearing do I belong, am I enough, will someone love me for who I really am? We wear smiles all the time but hide in fear and loathing because we feel different. The journey is universal no matter who you are. And, working through the dark uncertainties is all about learning to radiate your own light. Bravely. Unapologetically. Authentically. Happily. 

All iTunes proceeds from the single will be donated to the ONEPULSE Foundation to help the victims of the Pulse massacre.
