Is Botswana a safe refuge?  Can people get there from the countries that have passed those vicious laws? 

And don't they understand that every LGBT person was born to straight parents?

Joan, thanks. Glad you thought it was worthwhile.

Daniel, I shortened your statement and posted on Twitter without attribution. Hope you don't mind.

We should not forget, either, each time someone in Nigeria, Uganda, Tanzania, Camaroon, is lynched, burned alive, or beaten to death for being gay - those actions were inspired, promoted, and supported by American evangelicals like Scott Lively, and catholic front groups like NOM, with Brian Brown at its helm.

A tragic turn of events in Uganda. I hope, too, that Pepe Julian Onziema is safe.

This is a profoundly difficult video for me to watch. And I am so proud of the courage of Pepe Julian Onziema. And worried for his safety.

Michael, Welcome!

It looks like the Tennessee bill, as amended, no longer requires schools to let students make announcements over the PA or speak at events (but if they do, there must be a "neutral" procedure for choosing students, and religious content is OK).

Amusingly, "The provisions of this act shall comply with ... any applicable state or federal laws, the Constitution of Tennessee and the United States Constitution." Yeah right!
