More bad news from Africa:

Zambian men charged over gay sex

Two Zambian men have pleaded not guilty during a court appearance in the small central town of Kapiri Mposhi to a charge of engaging in homosexual acts.

They were released on bail on Monday after undergoing medical examinations to check if they had engaged in homosexual acts.

Simeon Mawanza, Amnesty International's Zambia researcher says,  "Anal examinations conducted to "prove" same-sex conduct are scientifically invalid and, furthermore, if they were conducted without the men's consent, contravene the absolute prohibition of torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment under international law."

"In addition, the doctors who conduct these examinations, by doing so forcibly, violate their ethical obligations towards people they examine," he added.

My heart breaks every time I hear stories like this.

I love this editorial from the Washington Post for the following description of NOM:  "The loathsome and duplicitous National Organization for Marriage".  Awesome!

That comment in a time when news organizations continue to interview NOM and other hate group people like American Family Association as legitimate sources.

Grinning Cat, that quote of yours kicks MAJOR-LEAGUE ASS.  The final two statements:

Pushed out? No. I walked out.

speak to the thought Jeff gave this matter, the conclusion he came to and the choice he made, one that many of us in our own way share with him.

Smokin' stuff, GC, thanks for posting it!

When she revealed that she was in fact a T, the audience seemed to love her even more. But, to my knowledge, T's have always had more acceptance in Asian culture. If this had happened in the 80s in America, she would have met a chorus of boos. 

She has a wonderful voice, both as a F and as a M, and seems to have a wonderful, likable personality. And it's a catchy little song, too.

As I am a transwoman I really enjoyed her talents.  The best part of this is that we "Ts" as a group are slowly catching up with the rest of the LGB+T community.  When I was her age in the 40s & 50s you were either in the closet or dead.  I may have enough time left to see us fully intregated as I could make another 20 years.  A lot are making it to 100 these days and we are making progress.  Even us Atheists are gaining ground.  It has been years since people ran in terror if they found you to be one of those scary heathens that were "Non Believers"

She's really a beautiful person, and has a beautiful voice.  I'm a fan:-)

Well, it looks like the show launched a career for her, I suppose. 

The young man in that video is just adorable.
