#LGBTQ Presidential Forum Tonight!

Kamala Harris is more than ready.

Here are a "few things" why:

1. Introduced the Do No Harm Act with Reps. Scott and Kennedy that would ensure that religion cannot be used to discriminate against LGBTQ individuals.

2. Cosponsor of the Equality Act that would amend the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

3. Advocate for fairness in health

#Khive #ForThePeople #Kamala
3a. Cosponsor of the Repeal HIV Discrimination Act which would provide for federal review of state and local laws that impose criminal liability on individuals living with HIV.

3b. As AG, sent letter to FDA urging the agency to reconsider its blood ban for gay men.

This is really starting to piss me off. #Trudeau literally created the most diverse cabinet in the history of #Canada, giving #POC the highest jobs in the country. He’s welcomed #Syrian refugees, he’s increased funding to #Indigenous people, he’s marched with #LGBTQ in #Pride...
...Parades. He’s supported #women’s rights, stood with #feminists & created the most gender balanced cabinet in the history of this country. His record on #humanrights, #multiculturalism & #diversity speaks a feck of a lot louder than some 20 year old photos. Wake up #canada!...
This is not #racism it is character assassination plain & simple. Don’t believe me? Look at Scheer’s record on #multiculturalism, #diversity & #inclusion. Look at the #whitenationalists, #bigots & #racists running in his campaign & ask yourself why they got a pass & JT doesn’t...

"EU is the 4th Reich" meme has been a real winner for our enemies.

Woke enough to know the EU is evil, people have consciously or unconsciously imbibed the message that white people are responsible for the EU; and fascism not globalism is the biggest threat.
Thread of ideas and infomation to counter the narrative the EU is Fascist. The EU is Nazi. It is neither.

The EU is #Globalist.

Globalism seeks to destroy everything we hold dear; to create future generations who are nothing more than malleable slaves to elite masters.
For those who believe EU is a fascist 4th Reich; this thread is for you.

But world is full of people telling you what to think. Don't take anything at face value. Research yourself.

Best proof is congruence between 'facts' and between 'facts' & what you see with your own eyes.

As a med student @PennMedicine, I cannot overemphasize how much this man does NOT represent our school, our educators, our students, and our approach to medicine! There's so much here that not only contradicts morality & common sense, but also evidence base... 1/5
As both a member of and an advocate for the health of the #LGBTQ community, I'll focus on the dig at respecting patients' identity and pronouns, and let others handle the rest 2/5
Based on the 2015 Transgender Survey, nearly 1/4 respondents did not seek care due to fear of mistreatment from their healthcare provider. And these aren't unfounded fears, as 1/3 of respondents reported identity-related negative experiences 3/5

UK government Cabinet minister @trussliz backs @Mumsnet in #transgender row as users call for a ‘new Section 28’.…

Truss, who is now Secretary of State for Int'l Trade, knew about her appointment at least 3 months prior to the date of her appointment. 1/
The reason we know Truss knew about her appointment as Secretary of State for Int'l Trade, is because 3 months prior, she was a paid guest @AEI World Economic Forum in March 2019.…

Her appointment as Trade Secretary wasn't until July 2019. 2/
Voting records for Truss clearly show she harbors an anti-#LGBTQ disposition.

Amazingly, she is also Minister for Women & Equalities.

Amazing, why?

Because she clearly doesn't accept #Trans women are women, as evidenced in the 1st article above.

Hello. Are you #autistic? No? Cool. Now then, here are a few guidelines for how to work, play and live with #autistic people. I hope they prove useful and believe me when I say that taking care here may save lives. Please share, especially if you are not autistic yourself /1
1. Do not challenge or question a person's diagnosis of #autism, unless you are very close and well meaning. There is little more hurtful than this simple act of distrust. /2
2. Do not assume we will have some unusual or special skill or ability. This is ignorant and also kinda silly. Also, don't judge us on this. #autism /3

The Dept of Education is failing to protect #LGBTQ students. A recent @amprog report showed that complaints of discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity are increasing.…
Tragically, the Trump Administration is nine times less likely than the Obama Administration to act on those complaints and order corrective action.
In April, I asked Sec. DeVos if she knew about the high rates of suicide among transgender youth when she rolled back the guidance, and she admitted that she did.

Amended Alberta Education Act comes in effect today.
Here's how #UCP have expanded religious privilege, while rolling back protections against vulnerable #LGBTQ youth in particular.
Also note how ridiculously unfair the Catholic system is to non Catholics.
#abed #abpoli
2/ To recap;
Non-Catholics over-pay for Catholic schools.
Not only do non-Catholics pay for them ($2,000,000,000 yr), they also have to subsidise shortfall in directed Catholic property taxes ($450,000,000 yr) & inefficiency of running two systems ($200,000,000 yr).
Despite this>
3/ Non-Catholic students & families can & are turned away from Catholic schools, even if it is their closest school.
Non-Catholic parents can't vote in board elections.
Non-Catholics can't run as trustees (although Catholics can in Public schools).

The past two days I have read anecdote after anecdote from parents who have children like Isla, have children who are #LGBTQ LGBT (not sure if that acronym is accurate), have children with #diabetes, even parents whose children just have eczema.
They've messaged me, replied to things I've said, and there is this trend among them-they blame #vaccines. I am not complaining. I knew my Twitter activity would result in these things. It is part of a conversation.
The commonality they don't realize exists is this-they are all ashamed. There is even a mother who believes her 29 year old son's latching issues as a newborn are due to her decision to #immunize. Her son is 29 years old and she is still writing about that online. That is sad.

To all the people saying that #LGBTQ Canadians should "give Scheer a break" on our issues, claiming that "he's evolved", let me give you a little history lesson. /1 #cdnpoli
I was born the year that Canada removed sodomy from the criminal code. So, I'm literally the first generation that grew up where being gay wasn't a crime (or at least you didn't get thrown in prison for it). /2
But that didn't mean things changed - the same people who fought against removing sodomy from the CC continued to call in complaints about gay bars/bath houses/restaurants, resulting in police raids for "public indecency" while I was growing up. /3

1. Bajaj Allianz has a new ad campaign about #LGBTQ people in India. Some questions:

- Have same-sex couples applied to be each other's nominee & listed spouse for insurance at Bajaj Allianz & has your company accepted those applications?
#IndependenceDayIndia #PyaarKiAzaadi
2- Do your policies cover surgery & post surgery care for trans people?

3- Any other specific insurance policy features from your company which help India's queer community access diff types of insurance?
#IndependenceDayIndia #PyaarKiAzaadi
4. My guess is that the issue here is: Whether or not LGBTQ people can marry in India, which they currently can't. This is used to justify financial discrimination.

5. But hey, afaik, unmarried straight people who live-in/co-habit are allowed to access some same services.

1. What are the ways that #EvangelicalismKills?

Conservatives love to say that ideas have consequences, but somehow they never want to examine the consequences of right-wing ideologies.

So let’s do that with this new hashtag coined by @Ashadahya.

#MondayMorning #EmptyThePews
2. Asha started the hashtag in connection with Renee Bach, an evangelical missionary in Uganda who, acting on a “calling”—rather than training and preparation—performed medical procedures only doctors are qualified to perform. And children predictably died.

Sex is not simply a hunger to be satisfied. It is important that from adolescence onwards, a more mature attitude to see and experience sexuality should be nurtured.
C.c - @arpita_pedia
#sex #gay #Lgbtq #men2men #girl2girl #pleasure #desire #samesex
Sex should be experienced as a vital, dynamic aspect of human interplay, rather than just a physical act or episode in our own lives
#sex #gay #Lgbtq #men2men #girl2girl #pleasure #desire #samesex
The school of thought to be encouraged in this process should involve acknowledging, accepting and displaying confident masculine and feminine characteristics, without either provoking or submitting to erotic temptation. #sex #gay #Lgbtq #men2men #girl #pleasure #desire #samesex

LGBTQ people are threatened in life and disrespected in death.

.@HRC mourns Jordan Cofer, a transgender man, killed in the #Dayton mass shooting.… via @HRC
This is about Connor Betts' sibling, Jordan Colfer, written by a friend.…
#ConnorBetts stole the lives of 9, among them his own sibling.
He also stole that person's opportunity to live their life fully, openly & without fear.
Ohio lawmaker #CandiceKeller said LGBTQ people were to blame for mass shootings. I wrote we're more likely to be victims.

This is important: I hope more male footballers join @EkdalAlbin to make the sport less homophobic and more supportive of male players to come out. #LGBTQ #Pride 🏳️‍🌈 h/t @Kibalcic
t bears remembering that the women’s game has a history of openly gay players that the men’s game has yet to catch up with, as I mention here… #LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈
And here’s a thread I posted after the women’s World Cup that looks into the stark difference in the # of openly gay/bi players in the women’s game vs the men’s #LGBTQ

1/ I have over 8,000 pages of transcribed lectures by Tulsi Gabbard's guru. He says f*g or fa**ot 128 times. She didn't just grow up in a conservative home. She grew up in an #LGBTQ hate group & still serves this man. Hate lectures exposed here. #DemDebate2 #GabbardGayHateGuru

I spent weeks interviewing #LGBTQ people for my three-part series on #disability.
At #ADA29 it's critical to remember #disabled Americans are THE largest minority group, yet most invisible.

LGBTQ disability and Pride: The case for inclusion…
The 2nd installment of my series on #LGBTQ #disability addresses the impact of being queer and #disabled. Exclusion from our own communities is common for disabled people--and a layer of macro-aggression disabled people fight daily.
The 3rd installment of my series on #LGBTQ #disability deals with access, employment & discrimination. The unemployment rate for #disabled Americans is double that of non-disabled and can be even higher for people with LGBTQ identities.

On parle beaucoup, ces temps-ci, de sexe, de genre, de transsexuel et de transgenres. Le préfixe trans (, qui signifie en latin “de l’autre côté”, indique un changement, un passage d’un sexe à un autre ou d’un genre à un autre.

Love and solidarity with @mashrou3leila. This is utterly ridiculous: #Lebanese church demands cancellation of Mashrou' Leila show. The band are such a great representative of Lebanese artists and they have performed many times already in their country.
#Lebanese authorities must protect @mashrou3leila from a mounting hate campaign and ensure the band, known for songs tackling social issues in Arab societies such as homophobia, patriarchy & corruption, are able to perform in safety and security.…
On July 12, it was such a thrill to see @mashrou3leila and author @rabihalameddine perform as part of Oliver Beer’s Vessel Orchestra at @Met_Breuer. They make #Lebanon proud and should be celebrated, not subjected to hate.
