HELLO! As a moderator, I'm posting an advisory and reminder about this community. Please note that it is a community focused on LGBT issues. Hence the name "Pride Plus LGBT". Here's what this community is NOT:

- a place for porn or erotica...including nude or sexually suggestive selfies (no negative judgement, but this ain't the place for it)
- a dating or hook-up site
- a place to sell your products, or yourself, or to promote personal projects that are not charitable or in service to the LGBT community
- a place to spew hate against any group of people (disagreement is not hate...but personal attacks, name calling, incitements to violence, etc, will not be tolerated)
- a place for homophobes to troll LGBT people
- a place to push religious or political agendas unrelated to LGBT issues *an exception is being made for the election, so important to the LGBT community, but please keep it civil and within guidelines 

Inappropriate or off-topic posts will be deleted, and anyone posting hate, violence, and ridicule, will be banned and reported. Anyone interested in the above list of things can start their own communities, or join other ones with a different focus, so please spare everyone diatribes about your First Amendment (free speech) rights. This is meant to be a safe place for LGBT people and allies, and their issues.

THANK YOU for respecting the guidelines of THIS community, should you care to join and participate. And if you are new, WELCOME!

Dear GOogler,
For #BlackHistoryMonth , we highlight #PhillWilson for his incredible work in founding the Black AIDS Institute✨ #BlackHIVAIDSDay
"I have lived an unbelievably blessed life. Now people may think that's a bizarre thing to say for someone who's lived almost his entire adult life with either HIV or AIDS. The truth of the matter is that I've lived a life where I've had the privilege of pretending that I can make a difference, and if I can hold onto that illusion, it doesn't get much better than that."

TY very much… There is one adult in the KUWAIT Education Ministry! Kuwait's Minister of Education Dr Bader Al-Essa has said that his department does not investigate students' sexuality and that students expelled for being gay will be returned to their studies...
There are no public advocacy groups in Kuwait pushing for the rights of LGBTI people though anonymous activist networks do exist.
One such group applied for formal approval by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in 2007 but it declined to acknowledge the request.
Well they better accept one soon, if they wish to join the Real World of Economics and Business.. Not just play in their oily sand. ‪#‎LGBT‬ exist NORMALLY in every part of the globe.. It's time they join the 21st Century and accept it.

So we know you stink Mr pastor , You drama,s show me how really weak and twisted you are. What does this prove
you are going to extra mile in your  stance on the wrong side
of history .  I feel it will back fire on you  so you know .  What does he want ?  any one see something else ?  I do not understand this form of drama .

Some LGBT history. The original TV Jimmy Olsen was played by Jack Larson, who lived in the 'glass closet' of Hollywood in the 1950's [out to industry, closeted to the public].

GOOD PIECE… I think this is gist. Do Read/Share/Keep if Anglican View important in your world.
"Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby recently said he was sorry for the pain caused to so many LGBTI people by the church, after a gathering of Anglican leaders made matters worse. One of the member churches got into trouble for letting same-sex couples marry. (Episcopalians in US) Meanwhile archbishops who had backed criminalization (African) were not called to account.
…. BUT apologies are not enough. It is time to act.

More Christians have come to believe that churches should celebrate faithful, self-giving partnerships. And many who are heterosexual now think it is wrong to refuse LGBTI people the joys and challenges of marriage. To them, this is a matter of treating others as they wish to be treated and loving their neighbors as themselves.
But this has not happened everywhere. To begin with, in a world of rapid change, some people are reluctant to rethink what they were taught, or are not yet convinced that same-sex relationships are what God intended.
What is more, scapegoating is a problem in many societies, where one minority or another is singled out. In some countries, LGBTI people have been targeted, especially where governments have tried to shift attention from their own misdeeds. Sometimes church leaders have played along with prejudice and power.
In societies torn apart by religiously-motivated violence, being cautious is understandable. But when Christian leaders join in by implying that fear and persecution of LGBTI people can be justified for reasons of faith, they become part of the problem, rather than part of the solution…

Church leaders should be willing to show through their actions that they are truly committed to including LGBTI people and our families. But the church is above all a community in which ordinary members have a vital role. This can involve creating welcoming congregations and reminding bishops of the harm done when anyone is treated unjustly.
The Anglican Communion can be a force for good but only if it is willing to take a stand for all who are pushed to the margins. Serving God involves caring for everyone and working for a better world free from every kind of injustice.
The author of a new book on sexuality in the church says the price of avoiding a split in the Anglican communion may be too high

And Cruz accepted the support of the pastor who advocated killing LGBT people, as well. Unless you're white, straight, Christian, and male (except for purposes of home-making and breeding)....he doesn't care about you. And he's pretty typical of #Republi-clowns these days.

VOTE. Primaries, general election, local, state, national. VOTE!
Ted Cruz is thrilled to have the endorsement of lunatic Pastor Mike Bickle. The National Jewish Democratic Council has a problem with this. They write: “It is profoundly troubling that Sen. Ted Cruz proudly trumpeted the endorsement of such a controversial figure who holds such offensive views. In announcing Bickle’s support, Sen. Cruz said, ‘we ...

OH PUHLEEZ This is Riverside CA where 110% of the people will vote for TED CRUZ! ... and I don't think even the board can fire someone for something so petty when they have tenure... BUT Then he is better off going somewhere else. (PS Guess what that student is a gay or bi in big big denial) ..
ACTUAL comments: 
‘You’re an intellectual thoroughbred, kiddo, and I’ve mentored very few of those in my career,’ Latham said.
‘I have to resist the impulse to ride you too hard too soon. If you’ll forgive the equine metaphor.’
But Latham said the charges, brought by a ‘disgruntled’ student and his girlfriend, should have been settled through informal mediation and accused the board of ‘rank homophobia.’ .... WELL DUH its Riverside!
'If a heterosexual man had made the exact same statement, no lewd implication would ever have been inferred'

The attackers were led by priests from the Orthodox Church, which doesn’t want a repeat situation after a man this week filed a same-sex marriage lawsuit. Eurasianet reports: In a first for ...
