    This is one of the organizations I'm involved with that works to educate employers about TGI employees, educates staff about TGI co-workers, and also links potential TGI employees with progressive employers - a lot of them are extremely hesitant to put themselves out there and apply for jobs especially in the service industry.

    I'm in the LGBTQ Mecca pretty much but I would assume there are quite a few other cities doing similar efforts - the results here have been noticeable, imo.

    I saw the biggest pride flag I think I've ever seen, in dripping springs tx flying outside some country warehouse type yard.
    I was impressed for such a rural area

    I honestly thought of this thread and that I need to get back by there to get a picture of it

    There is a house on Shades Creat road in Vestavia with 4 large pride flags. Cool seeing that out here.

    Speaking of ALs when we were live-in caretakers near Crestwood blvd the salon we would get our client’s haircut would talk about the softball league they were in all the time. I mentioned I played baseball and they said their league was a gay league that allowed straight players to a cap. That league was a blast to play in and the big tournament they did the Southern Shootout is the longest running gay tournament in the country. The men and women in that league were awesome I wish I hadn’t broke my arm in half otherwise I’d still be playing.

    glimmer read this thread I feel like this 100% a plant account to spew hate and misinformation. The account was created in June 2022 right when that god damn What is a woman hateumentary came out and only has a few tweets and only likes. All these fucking doctors and nurses agreeing with “them” makes me hate this country that much more.

    The Mennonite Church USA has passed a resolution acknowledging the harm it has done to LGBTQ+ folk, and removed a ban on same-sex marriage.

    The denomination is the largest Mennonite denomination in the United States, with 530 congregations and more than 60,000 members.

    On the first day of Pride month (1 June), the Mennonite Church USA announced that its delegates at the Special Session of the Delegate Assembly last month had narrowly passed “a resolution for repentance and transformation”.

    The resolution acknowledged that the church’s current policies “do violence to LGBTQIA people by failing to affirm their full, God-given identities and by restricting their full participation in the life, ministries and rituals of the broader church”.

    The primary policy that does that, it said, is its 2001 membership guideline which bans pastors from “performing a same-sex covenant ceremony”.

    “The rejection of LGBTQIA people by MC USA has silenced and denied ministry callings, torn apart families, forced parents to choose between their church and their child, and caused many LGBTQIA people to leave the church,” the resolution reads.

    More than likely but I don't know enough about the transitioning process and wanted to see if they were just talking out of their ass or actually talking facts.

    An attack on one member of the white race is an attack on us all. I'm not going to tolerate it. I'm going to find out who those officers are,” one outraged Patriot Front fan said in a video posted on Gab, “and I'm going to dox every single one of them.”

    “Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. You'll be hearing from me soon. Fuck you,” he continued.

    The video was shared within a network of neo-Nazi activists who all praised the man and said they would aid in the effort.

    “Pigs pissed off the exact demographic you DON'T actually want mad at you,” one of them wrote.

    “These people have names,” another wrote.

    Hating the police is pretty common among the extreme-right who typically considers traditional authority a barrier to their goals. In a press conference Monday morning, Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Lee White said that he and his fellow officers were being “screamed and yelled at” by anonymous people calling. Some officers were even getting death threats from as far away as Norway, according to Lee.

    On Telegram, several neo-Nazi and white supremacist accounts shared addresses and phone numbers they’ve found online associated with Coeur d'Alene police officers. A few have posted about how they’ve called the numbers and found them disconnected. Police officer numbers and addresses are typically unlisted for this very reason.

    What is listed online, however, are the phone numbers and addresses of the police stations where the officers are based. Other accounts on Telegram have posted that they’re giving the police and sheriff's offices bad reviews online and calling and leaving rude messages.

    “I just left the police chief a scathing voice mail in Idaho for arresting Patriot Front,” one Nazi wrote.

    One well-known neo-Nazi terror group that has had former members arrested by the FBI for myriad crimes also posted in favor of attempting to release the names of the police officers.

    “Our enemies have names, addresses, and loved ones too. We have no moral obligation to subject them to equal retribution for their crimes,” reads a statement they released. “They deserve to be tortured and humiliated in the most egregious fashion possible.”

    The group, however, has a spotty record of being able to conduct proper research of who they’re targeting and once accidentally staged a propaganda photo at the wrong home

    Fuck this country for being cool with the entire "The Model Minority" bullshit. So much racism and misery just oozes from that term. There isn't any role in a "Model Minority" family dynamic that I find desirable and the whole thing just makes me angry. Such a subversively evil social construct Uncle Sam (It might be just as rampant in Britain)

    The story of the Asian father and his gay son should be the new sort of Oscar-Bait movies that get made by Disney rather than rehashing their back catalogue but including one or two LGBTQ+ character{s} that are minor characters.
