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… 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.

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.

Also @jerseycornelia, attitudes like yours contribute to circumstances like this, which I reported on this week:

Day before @USWNT #womenssoccer team took on #France in #WorldCup qtrfinal, Trump attacked his nation’s captain on Twitter. NOTE: She accepted @AOC Invitation to #USHOUSE @NFLPA @NBA @WNBA @MLS @MLB @NCAA @UniteWomenOrg @Womenworking @maddow @TheEllenShow
@USWNT @AOC @NFLPA @NBA @WNBA @MLS @MLB @NCAA @UniteWomenOrg @Womenworking @maddow @TheEllenShow Then Rapinoe, 33, let her feet do the talking, scoring two goals that led the United States to victory over the tournament’s hosts and to a Tuesday semifinal against England. #USWNT @USWNT @MLS @NBA @WNBA @NFLPA @WomenintheWorld @womensmarch @guardian @SkyNews @LGBTQ_Military
@USWNT @AOC @NFLPA @NBA @WNBA @MLS @MLB @NCAA @UniteWomenOrg @Womenworking @maddow @TheEllenShow “Rapinoe is, a walking example of intersectionality — not one aspect of her identity defines her,” Amy Bass wrote for CNN. “She is an outspoken #LGBTQ+ advocate. An outspoken advocate for #racialjustice and #genderequity.

This is the best headline you will see today, I guarantee it.
Women athletes don't have to do anything but be athletes
And objects of adoration.

On #MeganRapinoe: "An essential rebel: a defiant woman refusing to play by the antiquated be-cute-and-courteous rules that make many men feel better about female athletes."…

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.

I feel like we got much more from this #DemDebate than I expected. I would have liked a more controlled stage and that the moderators paid better attention to how many questions they were giving candidates. Warren got no q's for 34 mins of the 1st hour, shut out of immigration.
What I had expected would happen did: some shone, some fell. It was a better opportunity than expected to get a sense of candidates and what they offer.
Most candidates gave a clear picture of who they are. For good or ill.
I appreciated Booker, Castro and Klobuchar raising #LGBTQ points.

1/ Today is day 2 of our #pride series focusing on #lgbtq+ health, and we’re going to spend today reviewing some important terms. #MedTwitter
2/ Let’s start with what we will affectionately call the alphabet soup. “LGBT” is likely familiar to many, but what people say after the T varies from person to person both in form and meaning.
3/ Terms one might see after LGBT include:
❤️Q: queer, and/or questioning (one’s sexuality, gender identity, etc.)
🧡I: intersex
💚A: asexual, agender and/or ally
💙+: meant to include any and all other identities not already included in the previous letters.

What a stunningly homophobic & utterly out of touch piece. The author wants gay people to stop thinking we deserve equal rights & just be nicer to her fellow bigots. Happy #Pride

Masterpiece Theater: Look Past the Cake-Shop Vendetta and Toward Kindness…
I imagine @kathrynlopez in 1965 would be telling MLK and John Lewis that they should just find another lunch counter and there's nothing wrong with sitting in the back of the bus.
Stop acting like it's ok to discriminate against an entire group of people because of your bigotry.
In my latest piece for @damemagazine I wrote about #LGBTQ history since #Stonewall but also about how LGBTQ people are still under threat. Embedded in the piece are a dozen news stories I've reported on discrimination and violence against LGBTQ people.…

Official Campaign Kickoff Edition: June 19, 2019

On June 18, 2019 we saw the official kickoff to @realDonaldTrump campaign for a 2nd term as President Of the United States Of America in Orlando Florida. #MAGA2020Orlando #KAGA2020 #KAGARally

Before we begin on yesterday’s event I must touch on my previous thread being deleted once again. This is not the first nor probably the last time this will occur by @Twitter however this needs to stop. Cencerorship is unacceptable on this or any other platform.

I’ve been here for 10 years and I’ve seen the censorship the whole time. Remember #ArabSpring #StandingRock #OccupyWallSt? Now you can add #QAnon & Conservatives to the growing list. Time for @POTUS and others like @DevinNunes to do something about this.

#PrideMonth #AbolishTheRegistry Fact 4:

So far we've seen how the SOR (Sex Offender Registry) is made up of 25% kids and more than 33% persons of color, but what about LGBTQ?

Why -is- this a pride month series?

Turns out the SOR is -also- a tool to attack #LGBTQ persons...
#PrideMonth #AbolishTheRegistry Fact 4 p1:

To understand how #LGBTQ are put at risk by the SOR, we must first understand "Romeo & Juliet" laws.

In short, R&J laws are a state-decided ruleset that protects teenage couples when one partner becomes an adult before the other.
#PrideMonth #AbolishTheRegistry Fact 4 p2:

Sounds fair and reasonable, right? I mean, R&J laws exist in half of the US.

Not exactly.

Firstly, consider the name: "Romeo & Juliet".

The law protecting teens from the SOR is named after an iconic cis-gender, straight couple.

I will be voting NO on Matthew Kacsmaryk, President Trump’s nominee for a federal judgeship in Texas. His anti-#LGBTQ views would move our nation backwards.
This #PrideMonth, Rs are trying to confirm Kacsmaryk--who compared the “march towards so-called marriage equality” with “complete lawlessness,” & called transgender identity “a psychological condition in need of care, not a category of persons in need of special legal protection”
The beauty of our Constitution is that it protects the rights of ALL Americans. It allows people of different views, different values, and different faiths to live together with a culture of tolerance, not exclusion.

Congratulations, #Botswana!

“The state cannot be sheriff in people’s bedrooms.” Botswana decriminalises same-sex relations in historic judgment… #LGBTQ #Pride
“Sexual orientation is innate to human beings and is not a fashion statement,” the court stated. “Homosexuality is not unAfrican, but it is one other way Africans identify but have been repressed for many years.” #Botswana #LGBTQ
From @hrw Human Rights Watch report This Alien Legacy — The Origins of “Sodomy” Laws in British Colonialism: many of the countries that outlaw same-sex relations do so “because they once were British colonies” #Botswana #LGBTQ

It has been deeply disappointing to me during this first week of #PrideMonth that so few of you have RT'd news and history pieces I have posted--mine and others'--about this historic 50th anniversary of our #LGBTQ civil rights movement.
The best way to show you're an ally is to amplify oppressed voices.
#PrideMonth is a great time to fly your rainbow ally colors. The work I have done in the past few weeks, writing and researching all these history pieces, has been incredibly hard and emotional work.
It's disheartening that along with not having equal rights in our society, we are so easily ignored by our str8 family and friends during this most critically important #PrideMonth when hate crimes against us are on the rise due to Trump's policies and rhetoric.

“I think it would be irresponsible to go through World Pride month and not to speak of the events at the Stonewall Inn in June of 1969,” Mr. O’Neill said.
“What happened should not have happened. The actions taken by the N.Y.P.D. were wrong, plain and simple,” he added. #LGBTQ
This is a HUGE APOLOGY because it was the brutal police raid at the #StonewallInn 50 years ago that birthed a revolution. #WorldPrideNYC…
Ever hear of a “Robin Hood?” It’s what some of the cops did to lesbians during the Stonewall raid. They would grab women’s bra straps from the back and let them go so they stung on impact. It is very good the Police Commissioner is apologizing. Owning the trauma would be better.
