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
#Section377
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.

#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.

This is about Connor Betts' sibling, Jordan Colfer, written by a friend.
medium.com/@Oree/his-name…
#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 google.com/amp/s/www.nyti… #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.
#CripTheVote

LGBTQ disability and Pride: The case for inclusion epgn.com/news/local/148…
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.
#ADA29
#CripTheVote
epgn.com/special-editio…
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.

THREAD : LES TRANSSEXUELS ET TRANSGENRES EXISTENT-ILS VRAIMENT ?
On parle beaucoup, ces temps-ci, de sexe, de genre, de transsexuel et de transgenres. Le préfixe trans (fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/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. reut.rs/2LBdlPG
#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. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
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.

While appearing on FOX NEWS, #TulsiGabbard, who has no experience in foreign policy unless you include chillaxing with mass murderer Bashir Assad, claims
#KamalaHarris ‘not qualified’ to be commander-in-chief because she has no FP experience.
fxn.ws/2Ob7FxM
This seems a good time to remind everyone that #TulsiGabbard's history of #homophobia is long and damaging. Her blaming her father when she was casting votes against #LGBTQ people in the HI state legislature is deceptive af.
huffpost.com/entry/opinion-…
In the state legislature when she was fighting against same-sex marriage while #KamalaHarris was marrying gay couples in San Francisco, Gabbard said,
"As Democrats we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists."
On. The. Floor.

#Resistance family: I pretty much dropped off of twitter for a couple weeks, dealing with personal shit and trying to check my rage and restlessness with the status quo. And, of course, everything is worse now, and in a couple more weeks, it will be even more worse. 1/
I'm tired. Of the fact that this Administration continues to defile our country with impunity. Tired of racists (becoming more emboldened by the day). Tired of cops getting away with (literally) murder. Tired of human beings being locked in cages like animals. 2/
I'm tired of the fact that brown Americans are made to feel as though they're not Americans (even those born here). It makes me tired that, as each day brings us closer to school starting, my stomach ties into knots, thinking about what could happen to my children there, 3/

Pic & article about 2 #Indian lawyers who successfully fought to decriminalize same-sex relations & have themselves come out as a couple is hugely popular & a reminder that gender & sexual fluidity not exclusively white/western. This also an important read ilgrandecolibri.com/en/islamic-mid…

Two lawyers who successfully fought to end #India’s colonial-era laws that criminalized same-sex relations have come out as a couple. Sending love and solidarity to @MenakaGuruswamy and @arundhatikatju news18.com/amp/news/buzz/… h/t @_drongo #LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈🌈

🔸Thread 3🔸Jeffrey Epstein.
Today a judge will decide if Epstein will be let out on bond.
He has offered 75 Million $ and his brother to co-sign another 100 Million.

My prediction right now is NO bond. He is a high risk repeat offender. He has never stopped abusing kids.

London:

TERROR ATTACK ON #LGBTQ PARADE ATTEMPT

NO NAMES? NO PHOTOS? British media hide the obvious: Couple planning a terror attack using a car and knives on the London LGBT Pride Parade were more than likely Muslims barenakedislam.com/2019/07/10/no-… via @barenakedislam
While London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan was pretending not to loathe gays as Islam commands all Muslims to do, his fellow Muslim terrorists were planning to terrorize the Pride Parade in London.
missing police photos, names, and descriptions of this ‘couple’ who were arrested for plotting a terror attack on the LGBT Pride celebrations taking place in central London last week.

A tweet reminded me today.

A lot of the focus on #Brexit is about trade & economics.

What we forget in that is that all #Brexits lead to hard-#Brexit once our rights are gone and #Brexit high-command / the #Tory ultra-right can do exactly as they please - with you.

1/2
2/2 How long before *your* job is transitioned to a 0-hours contract? Or fancy an 80-hour week? Instant dismissal by text?

Also, there are some #Tories just gagging to re-criminalise a few things. Like being #LGBTQ. Or not pulling your forelock sufficiently deferentially.
PS: Vague promises to adopt things into UK law are subject to this 👇 warning from that bloke who gave you the #NHS:

False @jerseycornelia
People are imprisoned & killed for being gay.
I don't have the same rights you have. I have been fired from jobs, denied housing, thrown out of public accommodations, expelled from HS, put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy for being a #lesbian.

You dismissing the impact of #homophobia on the lives of millions, @jerseycornelia, is saying that you really couldn't care less about the oppression and violence that #LGBTQ people suffer.

Ok I saw this video again the other night at a party and it's been bothering me ever since. So, a thread about queerness and aesthetics.
Let's set aside the part where TS is maybe queerbaiting folks, maybe making herself the center of a would-be Pride anthem. I'm not arguing with that. It's valid. Let's talk about this: white people with bad teeth holding homophobic protest signs
Natalie Wynn, the best philosopher on the internet, wrote a really good explanation of the difference between an age of reason and one of aesthetics. She argues that we're living in the latter, and her evidence is convincing.
