She's the perfect #GOP candidate, though.

Tulsi Gabbard ‘regrets’ past anti-gay activism as she prepares for presidential race.
rollcall.com/news/campaigns…
"As Democrats we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists."--#TulsiGabbard

Ten percent of the population are "homosexual extremists."
She's never withdrawn that statement nor apologized for it.
#TulsiGabard also opposed research on #LGBT youth, saying, "many parents would see the study as an indirect attempt by government to encourage young people to question their sexual orientation."

Like the #GOP claims sex education encourages them to have sex?

Tulsi is an Assad apologist homophobe who willingly and persistently fought AGAINST #LGBT PEOPLE with her father in a gay hate organization called “Stop Promoting Homosexuality”

Her ideology stems from her life long involvement with the cult “Science of Identity” #ChrisButler
Tulsi Gabbard has never renounced her guru #ChrisButler a homophobe and misogynist leader and in fact has praised him at an ISKCON gathering as late as 2016.
Here is Tulsi Gabbard singing Hare Krishna in 2016.

My series on poverty and hunger among #LGBT people?
Fewer than 500.

What can I do to get you to read and share these important investigative pieces?
This is a serious question, because the investigative work I am doing is crucial, the interviews I am doing are with people whose voices are often suppressed & the issues are ones that get little attention.

I realize this is a problem for many journalists, not just me, so....?
Last month I did a big piece on #lungcancer among women and another on #familicide. One got massive attention, the other, very little.

I am interested in feedback.
I know few people read articles, but we write them for you.
So--not abusively, please--let me know your thoughts.

Just a little reminder, that while the GRA consultation deadline has passed, Mumsnet transphobes are still lobbying their MP’s with anti-transgender rhetoric!😖

Decent people need to contact their MP to counteract this negativity.

Find your MP here ⤵️
theyworkforyou.com/mp/
I hear some people say “Oh, but my MP is anti-trans / lgbt” - In that case you DEFINITELY need to contact them to let them know that they have #trans / #LGBT voters in their constituency....You know the transphobes will be writing to them, so you need to counter their narrative!
“But what do I say to my MP about #trans equality?” is another thing people say...

@stonewalluk have some brilliant information here ⤵️
stonewall.org.uk/lgbt-britain-t…

And @TransActualUK has a fabulous twitter images you can use in emails / print out to leave with your MP 👍🏻

“To speak now...about the Bush admin’s lack of response to the AIDS crisis is not about dishonoring the man’s death, but about honoring the deaths of others who were equally beloved to their communities, but far from equal in power...”

By @thegarance
thecut.com/2018/12/george…
This excellent @thegarance piece features an embedded video of an @actupny protest outside of HW Bush’s vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

It’s worth watching and brought back memories of a lot of similar protests I attended.

We were so young.

Many of us did not survive.
.@hilaryr says it well:

“This was our reality: We were kids and our friends were dying and the government was ignoring it because they were gay. He just didn’t lead at a time when we were desperate for leaders.”

We are excited to launch our network today! TRIUMPH is a @UKRI_news-funded #MentalHealth network that brings together young people, academics, health practitioners, and policy-makers to identify bold solutions to improve youth mental health. (THREAD 1/7 – continue reading 👇)
Many of the drivers of poor #MentalHealth sit at the broader social, environmental and cultural level and are affected by our relationships, and the settings & communities we live within. (2/7)
We believe that there's a different, solution-focused approach that seeks to understand young people’s strengths, assets & resiliences. Young people will be at the centre of the TRIUMPH Network. Read about network design ➡️ triumph.sphsu.gla.ac.uk/about-us/#desi… (3/7)

Short thread on how I got involved in #Activism - I have been an activist since I was 17 (1989) - I campaigned with EarthWatch Ireland about, 'The Greenhouse Effect' (now #ClimateChange) raw sewage / river pollution and recycling.
In 1994, I moved to London for work and joined @GreenpeaceUK as a volunteer working on #StopEsso campaign and #SaveorDelete an Ancient Forests campaign. In 2002, #Banksy worked with us to create a poster and I was in charge of sending them around the UK along with this stencil
First rule of stenciling - Don't have your name printed on it!

In honour of Trans Remembrance Day, a brief fact-check of a particularly inaccurate thread musing about trans people's problems as perhaps rooted in just their mental health problems.
Research on trans suicidality proves otherwise, instead showing that suicidality among trans people varies based on the life conditions many trans people are subjected to. #LGBT #canqueer
In this study, those who experienced transphobic physical or sexual violence were 7 x more likely to have attempted suicide within the past year

So, the other thread I was talking about at the beginning of the week and, sadly not about Vagrant Story or Farscape.

One of the questions I see pop-up again and again is why do TE*Fs (note the wildcard placement, there's nothing radical about these #Fuckwits) have such...

1/n
hatred for #trans #people?

Well, if we step back a little and change how we look at the patterns of behaviour, and look at those behaviours in a different paradigm, one more associated with personal relationships, TE*F behaviour and attitudes have a depressingly familiar...

pattern to them.

Alisa wrote an article for @TGC on why people are leaving Christianity.

She says it's because:
1. We are questioning the Bible
2. We have "unresolved" issues with why there's evil in the world.
3. We want morals that don't discriminate people.

Here's my thoughts...
1. Authority should be questioned. Bible included. It's a Frankenstein book. Research "Yahweh" and find the Bible wasn't always monotheistic. Think of all the robed men you'd have to trust 100% to write, edit, and pick the right writings while 100% certain the world is flat.
Discouraging people to question the authority of the Bible is insanely unhealthy. That's Spiritual Abuse. Total disregard for your logic.

Contradictions matter when you claim to be the sole authority of Truth in the Universe.

Four positive aspects of the #Synod18 "Final Document" (still available only in Italian) on the church's ministry with #LGBT people: 1) It stressed the value of "accompaniment." 2) It acknowledged the work that many in the church are doing to minister to LGBT people... 1/
3) It acknowledged that the church doesn't know everything about LGBT people and (as with other groups) must listen to them. 4) It spoke clearly of the need to reach out, include and look for ways for LGBT people to be part of the life and mission of the church. 2/
I see these four aspects as positive developments and, along with the overarching theme of listening in a "synodal" (i.e., more collegial and consultative) church, good indications of progress in the church's ministry to LGBT Catholics and outreach to LGBT people in general. 3/3

#FridayFlashback

I'm crying.

I'm listening to @NPR's @MorningEdition report on the internment of #MatthewShepard's ashes.

I'm recalling the candlelight vigil I attended with friends.
The emotional interview I did with Judy Shepard.
The shocking brutality of the killing.
1/
@NPR @MorningEdition I'm thinking of other #LGBT hate crime killings I covered that weren't national headlines.

#SakiaGunn was two weeks shy of her 16th birthday when a man called her a d*ke and when she talked back, stabbed her. She died in the lap of her cousin.

@NPR @MorningEdition #GwenAraujo was a teenager when she was raped and murdered.

#BrandonTeena was in their 20s when they were raped and murdered.

Two young trans/GNC people just trying to live their authentic lives. But men wanted them to follow their birth genitalia instead.

Like Trump.

Contrary to popular belief, there really are more than two genders.Many people with sex chromosome variations don't know they have it, or find out later in life. Some are born with ambiguous genitals, and some look like one gender or another but their chromosomes are different.

On #NationalComingOutDay I wish I could tell the 16 year old me that she'll survive.

I had been expelled from my all girls high school for being a #lesbian.
I had been put in a psychiatric ward for #conversiontherapy.
I had been separated from my gf.
🏳️‍🌈
I don't want other #LGBT teens to experience what I did--the self-doubt, suicidality, cutting, anorexia--the many forms of self-harm that we learn/teach ourselves as ways to cope with lives that feel fraught, to take control we don't have.
#NationalComingOutDay ❤️💜💙💚🧡💛🖤
Knowledge is power.
Embrace who you are--there is so much strength in that.
Don't let other people define you.
Don't let other people claim you aren't "really" who you know yourself to be.

The majority of the working class in America is women and POC.
And white men as a group haven't voted majority Democrat since 1964--they stopped after LBJ signed the the #VRA.
Flip the narrative and start listening to the ACTUAL working class--the rest of us.
Stop centering white men for everything.
Stop claiming only white men can save us from the damage white men did to us.
Women are the working class--my investigation here:

damemagazine.com/2018/04/12/wom…
.@matthewstoller is very worried about white men, but it's really women of all races who are facing the worst effects of economic and social stresses.

Bernie Sanders gave a speech at Liberty University with this nut lending credibility to hate.
Why?
I never understood why he did this during the campaign but it sent a message to every #lgbt person not to trust him. And we don’t.

Producer @diamondmofallon told me that part of the reason that the #LGBT segment was included in the show was because we cover those issues in #UnitedShades. #PartsUnknown #ShadesUnknown
