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.

Happy Coming Out Day: Watch ALL MY GAY FRIENDS ARE GETTING MARRIED Comments (0)

Today is National Coming Out Day, and there's no better way to celebrate than by watching some of the gay content available that would have been unheard of 10 years ago.

Start with ABC's new digital series All My Gay Friends Are Getting Married, a fun talker from World of Wonder (RuPaul's Drag Race) hosted by The View alum Michelle Collins. In it, she hosts guests talking about gay marriage in a way that shows how far we've come since it was a plot twist on Friends. (Remember?!)

From a press release:

Gay-Marriage Pioneers Now Need Your Help Comments (0)

Gay-marriage pioneers Ben and Marcial Bolina Cable sued the state of California for the right to marry back in 1993, and were finally able to tie the knot legally two years ago.

Now, the couple is facing a new challenge—Marcial has a malignant brain tumor, and he needs some help from the LGBTQ community.

Via the Bay Area Reporter, Ben says:

The expenses have come as quite a surprise. Our insurance has peaked—we pay 10 percent of all the bills. What Kaiser is doing is wonderful, Marcial has a great team, but the cost is enormous.

Even with a sick hubby, Ben is thinking about others, noting:

We need to preserve and expand the Affordable Care Act.

Just another reason why we need to elect Hillary Clinton—Donald Trump and his minions want to gut the Affordable Care Act, and have no plan to replace it with anything.

Check out his GoFundMe page here.

Too Hot To Fail?: Republican Accused Of Sexting With 17-Year-Old Finds Gay Defenders Comments (0)

12717283_1065059936850291_2024808027389844163_nRemember when Bush helped make gay marriage unconstitutional in many states? Yenni loves him! (Image via Facebook)

I remember when gay people used to have their eye on the ball, but now they just have their eye on the balls.

Why can't you do both—be sexual and also be capable of seeing the big picture, politically, when it comes to who our friends and enemies are?

This comes up after reading the comments on Queerty's post about Mike Yenni, a Republican, married Louisiana Parish President who has been accused of sexting with a 17-year-old boy, meeting him in a mall bathroom stall to give him sexy underwear and make out, and suggesting to him that they have a three-way with a 19-year-old.

Instead of laughing or being angry at the man's hypocrisy, most of the comments are either distracted by how HOT this DADDY is (I know Tom of Finland sexualized Nazis, but sheesh), or by how this is all none of our business (because 17 is the age of consent there).

Excuse me, but it is our business. The guy is an elected official who has pledged allegiance to the Republican Party. Read their platform on gay issues, please. Family values as a phrase has been used as a cudgel against LGBTQ people for decades, and this guy, hiding in the closet, is banging teenage boys while he's giving the appearance of being Mr. Straight-and-Narrow, and while his Party is pursuing aggressively anti-LGBTQ laws and measures.

Some have said he hasn't voted on anti-LGBTQ measures. So? He's a Republican—that was his blanket vote against us.

Also, removing the politics from it, how can these people not accept that a public figure's personal sexual conduct is, in fact, of interest? Are we not in the midst of hearing all about Bill Clinton's many infidelities all over again, and Trump's? There is a salacious desire to know, and when the conduct is occurring from someone claiming to be against that sort of thing, it's all the more newsworthy.

Jesus Christ, it's now to the point where gay people are so turned on by sexual situations they can't be disgusted by the hypocrisy of a guy like Mike Yenni? We're actually arguing for his privacy while his Party argues against the right of a trans person to take a piss?!
