1/Fear & Loathing, Hope & Belonging - Why is it important to support a ban on the practise of conversion therapy? Because it is a recognized harmful practice that serves to make a segment of our citizens feel like they are not “right”, like their identity is not “right”.
2/Conversion therapy practices are designed to make individuals feel that society & God do not love them for who they are. We must be better than that. On Monday, Council will debate the proposed bylaw banning conversion therapy in Calgary (reviewed by committee May 13 & 14).
3/At that committee meeting, we heard from 121 members of the public over about an 18 hour period. We also received over 1,800 written submissions. Some were in favour and some were opposed. Many had clearly not read the proposed bylaw, particularly Schedule A.

A short thread on Tory loon Gerald Howarth, former MP for #Aldershot, summarising his comprehensive awfulness. 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳🦠 #ToriesOut #ToriesKill #COVID19 #ToryGenocide
Young Gerald showed an early desire to be on the wrong side of history, joining the Conservative Party in 1964 while still a teenager. In that year, the Tories were busy conducting one of the most racist election campaigns ever 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #racism

theguardian.com/world/2014/oct…
In March 1968, while millions of young people around the world protested against US violence in Vietnam, Howarth attended the famous Grosvenor Square demo to protest IN FAVOUR of the war… 😮✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ffs #ToriesOut #Vietnam

Watching (ironically enough) 2 Popes and anti-fascist anthem Bella Ciao came on. It reminded me of when @damirimamovic, singer & composer of Sevdah(traditional music of Bosnia & Herzegovina)sang it at end of beautiful & brave 1st ever #Pride there in Sept
And more @damirimamovic singing Bella Ciao, an Italian folk song adapted as an anthem of anti-fascist resistance, at the end of #SarajevoPride #imaizać
Here’s one of the threads I compiled on #Sarajevo #Pride, with pictures that still fill me with joy. Love and solidarity with all friends and comrades there

As we approach the 20th anniversary of a critical change in policy, allowing LGB personnel to serve in the armed forces, it's worth a look back at the debates in 2000. #ally #defencepeople #pride 🌈🏳️‍🌈❤️ api.parliament.uk/historic-hansa…
This is a matter of public record (Hansard link above) and shows the views that were present at the time the ban was lifted. It's only 20 years ago.
If you want to save some time reading here are some selections. Content warning: some of the views against the lifting of the ban might be upsetting.

Google gave Devin Nunes a $5000 campaign donation on November 12.
Darin LaHood was one of 19 state senators to vote against a ban on gay conversion therapy in 2015. He's a cogressman now and Google, a vocal corporate supporter of #pride, gave him a $2,500 donation on November 12.
Defending a proposal to cut access to the SNAP program (food stamps), Texas Rep. Jodey Arrington cited the biblical passage Thessalonians 3-10. "We give you this rule, 'If a man will not work he shall not eat.'" Google gave him $2000 he didn't work for on November 12.

Relieved I was able to fly on Tuesday to be with my brother and his family for the holiday. This weather! Parents and sister and her husband drive to be with us tonight. It’s been a while and I’m grateful for this family reunion.
And after this short break with my family, I will see you next week #Soweto for @Abantu_! I am so excited! #abantubookfest
Since September, #FeministGiant World Tour has taken all over and I am grateful to all who came to see me speak and all who have bought The Seven Necessary Sins For Women and Girls as well as Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution. More dates 2020!

Be not a proud Patriot,

as #Wisdom hates #pride,

But rather,

a #GOD fearing #Patriot,

As wisdom loves correction and is teachable.

-Author:

"I AM WHO I AM"

Proverbs 3, 8, 9
Psalms 10:11

Thank you my Lord Jesus for this wisdom.
Pride took out Gods #1 Angel and 1/3 of heaven.

What is pride?

Pride puts "SELF" first.

It is the opposite of this 👇
"BREAKING NEWS"

Every body is a sinner.

Not a single one of you is blameless.

God make you.

God gets all the GLORY.

Humble yourselves.

Think.

There is only ONE GOD but BILLIONS of you.

@SimonFanshawe Fairly shocking to find eradication of "mixed wards" By @NHSEngland @NHSImprovmeent was only rebranding exercise & that now they just lie about #male genitalia to #female patients so they have no way to protect themselves. @CMO_England @CNOEngland
@Jochurchill4
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 NHS guidelines:
Grade #1 woman: transwomen with #ladydique
Grade #2 woman: biological female #unraped (of course)
Grade #3 woman: Biological female - rape survivors, it doesnt matter that they can't sleep or scared out of their wits. @Baroness_Nichol
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 @Baroness_Nichol Ideally, of course #Female #Rape survivors (or victims) dont actually show up for medical treatment they need & deserve, freeing up #NHS resources for patients who are not damaged goods & who deserve actual health care.

Google's October FEC filing is up, showing us which American politicians the company elected to give money to last month. We start out strong with a $1,500 donation to Mitch McConnell on September 30
There's also a $5,000 donation from Google to Mike Crapo's "Freedom Fund" which also gives to Mitch McConnell, along with a selection of other Republican incumbents
Google made a maximum $5,000 donation to Susan Collins of Maine, beloved by Google employees for her role in the Kavanaugh hearings. I actually find these donations way worse than Google's gifts to the hard right, because control of the Senate hinges on close elections like hers

Live tweeting re-watch of #MainPremKiDiwaniHoon henceforth to be referred to as #MPKDH
Thread

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

Nothing

Last year on #NationalComingOutDay, a young man I know had a life altering effect on me when he became a statistic.

25% of youth who come out to their family immediately become homeless. If you’re POC, the statistic is higher.

Here’s Jack’s story from #NationalComingOutDay 2018
Last Sunday— October 6, 1998 was the 21st anniversary of the murder of Matthew Shepherd. He was driven to a remote, rural area in WY, robbed, pistol-whipped, tied to a fence, tortured & left to die all because he was gay.

He would’ve been 42 years old.

#NationalComingOutDay
Had the world had not known Matthew Shepherd & seen how hate let him be beaten, bruised & forgotten to die on a fence post—or Jack become homeless— days like #NationalComingOutDay or #Pride month wouldn’t need to exist.

I long for the day when there is no need to declare this.

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...

In honor of the #Callisto6 finale this weekend, I am going to be posting something I've been meaning to for the last 3-ish weeks or so.

I am running a vanilla 1.14 Minecraft server for the #SuperPunks (if you're interested give me a yell in the fan discord), and did something...
The something being 20-odd #PRIDE flags in the form of Minecraft Banners. Some disclaimers:

There's only so much detail that can be put into a given banner, and I only have so much skill. As much as I would have loved to have a Philly PRIDE banner, it's beyond my abilities atm.
Right now it's basically me and one other person from the #Superpunks/#AuxCrew Discord on the Minecraft server, but other fans are welcome to join.

The server is Whitelisted, and I will only be handing out the IP on the Discord/via IMs. Dragon is dead, and most pets are tamed

I am so tired but here is a picture of when I was not yet tired & tossing a glitter ball in the air while wearing fishnets & rainbow booty shorts & fairy boots at #madtownpride19 today! #pride #queer #madisonwi
I was required to wear a volunteer shirt, so I went all out on the bottom half of my body. 😂🤣😂
Closer look at these fairy boots because they are just so great. 😍

Mich hat diese #Tönnies Geschichte ziemlich aus der Bahn geworfen, muss ich sagen. Beschäftigt mich sehr. Nach langen Grübeleien bin ich zu dem Entschluss gekommen, dass ich meine #Schalke Mitgliedschaft beende, sollte Tönnies im September noch Teil des Aufsichtsrats sein. #S04
Werte und Ideologien sind mir wichtig. Ich bin bewusst Schalke Mitglied, weil ich das Wertemodell sehr stimmig finde und weil ich mich darin gut wiederfinde. Ganz besonders auch deshalb, weil ich mich schon recht lange nur eher selten in direkter Nähe zu Gelsenkirchen aufhalte.
Auch wenn mich der Traditionsgedanke beim Spiel selbst meist nervt, so gehen mir die gesellschaftlichen Aspekte sehr nahe. Die Nähe zum Bergbau betreffend etwa.

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

Kuss-Verbot durch die Polizei am Tag des #CSD in #Siegen.
Ein Thread.

Finde es immer noch krass, dass es scheinbar in Deutschland öffentliche Orte gibt, an denen man sich nicht küssen darf, die Polizei einem das auch noch untersagt.
#si2707 #CSD2019 #Pride @csdsiegen
Zum Hintergrund und derzeitigen Stand:
Am 27.7.2019 fand der #CSDSiegen mit Demonstration und Straßenfest statt.
Entlang der Demoroute hatten auch die Nazis rund um den 3.(irr)weg eine Versammlung gegen "Homopropaganda" und für "gesunde Familien" etc.
(Siehe u.a. @infozentrale)
In der Stadt gab es verschiedene Stände um sich gegen die faschos zu positionieren.
In direkter Nähe am Kölner Tor auch die SPD, auf der anderen Straßenseite der @AStAUniSiegen.
Während der CSD Demo sollte es am Kölner Tor auch ein "kiss-in" geben.

It is good to see @IlhanMN back home in Minnesota, happy, playing and doing what she does best: existing and in so doing, driving racist shits over the edge h/t @mollyhc
Driving racist, misogynist and Islamophobic shits over the edge!
I feel a thread of @ilhanmn happy, existing and driving racist, misogynist and Islamophobic shits over the edge is a great way to celebrate her. This is from when she took part in #Pride on June 24
