Bigotry Knows No Boundaries:

Why the murder of Trayvon Martin matters to Gay people.

Rev. Irene Monroe:
A young man has become the symbol of the horrific result of such stereotyping, and is fast becoming the symbol for a movement. Just as Matthew Shepard's death galvanized a nation, Trayvon Martin's death is doing the same.

LA Radio host comes out as intersex.  Interesting interview.  

Quote...Maybe there are people that hate it, but I actually kind of love it. So I hope other people that are like me, even if they’re not telling anybody, love it as much as I do. Because it’s kind of a neat thing to be free of gender in a way...

You certainly live your life knowing you’re different. But it’s really kind of a beautiful thing. I could’ve lived without having to get all the surgeries, but in the long run I think it’s kind of awesome."

Self acceptance is beautiful.

Glad that it was useful.  I mainly posted it because some of those arguments are similar to what gays have to deal with.

from the website 76crimes.com statement from US department of state deploring the murder of Camaroonian LGBT activist Eric Ohena Lembembe.

Per HuffPost he was tortured and murdered.

from thie HuffPost article, "...the most high-profile African gay rights activist to be killed since 2011, a year that saw the deaths of Uganda's David Kato and South African lesbian activist Noxolo Nogwaza."

I could not locate a public domain pic, so here is google image album of Lembembe.

From what I can see, he was courageous and passionate.  The world is better for his having been here, and less for his having been murdered.

Susan,thank you for posting the link.  It prompted me to explore web topics and videos regarding interpersonal challenges that are faced by people who happen to be asexual.

Gay activist beaten to death in Camaroon.

Much of Africa is a hellhole for LGBT people.  Makes me feel so bad.

UK headed down the path to marriage equality.  It's going to be a long slog, possibly a year while they work some issues, like will humanists be allowed to perform marriages.  Church of England, which was started by the promiscuous and serial polygamist Henry VIII, is against marriage equality.  The queen will have to sign the bill.

That's a beautiful video, Sentient.
