#LGBT #Colorado elects first openly #gay #Governor, according to CNN News. Colorado Democratic U.S. Rep. Jared Polis will be his state's next governor, becoming the nation's first openly #gay #man elected to a Governor's Mansion, CNN has projected. Jared Polis will succeed Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper, who is term-limited from seeking the office again, and will defeat Republican gubernatorial nominee Walker Stapleton for the top office in the State of Colorado as chief of state, government, and commander-in-chief.

#Oregon Democratic Governor Kate Brown, who identifies as #bisexual, is already the first openly LGBT person to be elected Governor. Former State of New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey came out as gay before he stepped down from office in the early 2000s.

#Trans #Transgender #Trump - A federal judge has blocked Trump’s executive order blocking #transgender people from serving in the U.S. #military. The federal judge ruled that transgender troops had a reasonable claim to their 5th Amendment rights being violated because Mr. Trump's directive affects them as a "class of historically #persecuted and politically #powerless #individuals". The decision was quickly hailed as a victory by Secretary-General #JordanPalmer of the Earth Equality Alliance, the Kentucky Equality Federation​, and Marriage Equality Kentucky​. Palmer stated, “transgender people had been singled out in a gruesome modern time act of discrimination before a World audience.”

#Trump #UN #USA The U.S. on voted against a United Nations Human Rights Council resolution that condemns the #death penalty for those found guilty of committing consensual same-sex sexual acts.

Still, the resolution — which Belgium, Benin, Costa Rica, France, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia and Switzerland introduced — passed by a 27-13 vote margin.

This leaves nation-states that execute #LGBTI people open for #sanctions or #refusal of #aid from the United Nations at the discretion of Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Col. Jordan Palmer with Kentucky Equality Federation and Marriage Equality Kentucky, called the U.S. vote shameful, but not unlike similar resolutions the U.S. also sided with #Russia, #Iran, and #Egypt in the past.

“#America will never be “great” again until we deal with #humanrights,” Palmer stated.

Kelly Currie, the U.S. representative to the U.N. Economic and Social Council, attended the event but did NOT speak.

Former Vice President Biden is among those who spoke at last year’s U.N. LGBT Core Group event.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley in April said the U.S. remains “disturbed” by the ongoing crackdown against gay men and lesbians in #Chechnya.

When a TRUE war #HERO like U.S. Senator #JohnMcCain (R-Arizona) or a longtime conservative like U.S. Senator #OrrinHatch (R-Utah) criticize this sudden and ill-conceived decision towards #Transgender #soldiers, you have to scratch your head.

But, everything else #Trump has tried to do has failed miserably so now he is taking cheap shots in desperation but playing with people's lives and #careers not to mention breaking additional campaign promises. #Trans #WeAreKY - Jordan Palmer, secretary-general, +Kentucky Equality Federation, +Marriage Equality Kentucky

#Trans #KY #USA #USMilitary President #Trump has, once again, betrayed the #LGBTI community he claimed to support during his campaign. In a stream of tweets, President Donald Trump announced this morning that he has banned transgender people from the US #military. Trans people were allowed to serve openly before Trump’s decision to force currently serving military members out of the armed forces.

--> Please note this decision notes NOT apply to State Defense Forces​, State Militias, or State National Guard units.

Yesterday, it was reported that Vice President Mike Pence, long a foe of civil rights for #LGBT people, was behind the push to discriminate against transgender people. Unsuccessful so far at getting Trump to issue a “religious freedom” executive order reminiscent of his disastrous broad license to discriminate he pushed through as #Indiana governor, Pence turned his attention to lobbying for the ban on transgender people in the military.

“Instead of undermining the military, and disgracefully trying to take away necessary health care from soldiers, Vice President #Pence should be working to ensure all federal armed forces and their families are getting the support and resources they need and deserve, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Vice President #Pence definitely has some unresolved homosexual, transgender, and transsexual issues he needs to come to terms with.” - +Col. Jordan Palmer

#KY #CA California travel ban extended to #Kentucky. The freedom of #religion gives you permission to worship as you see fit as per the constitution of this Commonwealth. If someone believes that isn't the definition of religious freedom, then they do not understand the meaning of it. But, religious freedom is commonly understood. Perhaps it is the religious belief of someone to sell they're first born female child into slavery, but that person would also be convicted of a criminal act and this is much the same.

Taking a hot bath in #EpsomSalt. Thankful #radiation is done for now, but #Keytruda has its own horrible side effects. But I'm not complaining. ✝️ Enjoying the sun ☀️ coming through the bathroom window. 👍🏻 All my love to everyone. 😘 I also thank God for this beautiful day. ✝️⛪️

No matter what you must endure in life, there is always something to be thankful for. 🌹🌺 Everything is relative, a matter of perspective. 🙏🏻♥️

I just completed an interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader about Senate Bill 17, (#SB17) ☎️ opposed by me and Kentucky Equality Federation, and there is no way it would withstand judicial review (court), but Governor Matt Bevin decided to waste your tax dollars ✅ and signed it into law anyway. 🤸‍♀️🍻 My comments, etc. are in the link below. 🤔 #weareky #kyequality

Also, if you truly want to save #money 🤑 #Governor, then appoint the Vice/Lt. Governor to also be the Secretary of a Cabinet she is qualified to lead instead of just sitting in #Frankfort and drawing a #salary for doing nothing since the Lieutenant Governor is no longer the ex officio #President of the #Senate anymore.

Don't preach to me about cutting #Medicare and #Medicaid when you have someone drawing $200,000 a year for simply having a pulse! 😡 💰 - Jordan Palmer

‪#Together4Peace ‪ #KY‬ : International Day of UN Peacekeepers 2016. "Today we honor the near 3,500 who have give full measure for the flag of the United Nations, united under a common cause regardless of religion, nationality, race, color, sexual orientation, or any other [dividing] labels bestowed upon fellow Human beings, to maintain peace and safety around the world," stated Kentucky Equality Federation alliance secretary-general +Jordan Palmer.

"The organizational and operational skills that our Army has, to include our Army Reserve, is so valuable in an environment where you have [the militaries of] 44 different nations ... trying to come together and function as one," stated U.S. Major General Hugh Van Roosen, the United Nations Force Chief of Staff, was responsible for the daily operation of the 44 country multinational staff serving over 15,000 United Nations Peacekeepers.

Since the first UN peacekeeping mission sixty-eight years ago, civilian and military personnel of the United States have served together under the United Nations flag in cooperation with peacekeepers from around the world, strengthening and deepening the bonds between themselves.

When I first learned as a kid what the United Nations (UN) was, I always felt it would be an incredible opportunity to work for the U.N.,” said Van Roosen. "It's the concept of the United Nations that is so great- although there are challenges and difficulties, the underlying concept is truly the future for our planet."

--> +United Nations Secretary-General +Ban Ki-moon will preside over a wreath-laying ceremony in honor of all peacekeepers who have lost their lives while serving under the UN flag. In addition, the Dag Hammarskjöld Medal will be awarded posthumously to the peacekeepers who fell while serving in the cause of peace, during 2015. The world leader will also preside over the inaugural ceremony for the 'Captain Mbaye Diagne Medal for Exceptional Courage.’
