What a relief!
Given the freaky circumstances, RiRi and Elliott were terribly concerned.

We can only imagine the struggle Kim Kardashian West continues to go through in the aftermath of that armed robbery in Paris — the only silver lining here is how close the Kardashian family is, and how they are no doubt rallying around her in a time of need.
Last night at the TransNation Festival's 15th annual Queen USA Transgender Beauty Pageant in El Lay, then, it was revealed that Caitlyn Jenner is making Kim's health and safety her priority right now, too!
God bless him!
A gay-friendly church in Kilburn, England was the scene of a hate crime early Monday morning when vandals decided to steal two LGBT flags from the property.
St. Mary with All Souls Church not only accepts a queer congregation, it even houses the first practicing vicar to marry another man in the form of Father Andrew Foreshew-Cain… and he's not about to surrender to no bigot!
Upon noticing the church's gay and transgender pride flags were removed from their pole mere hours after Sunday services, the Good Father took to Twitter to condemn the cowardly Christians at fault, tweeting:
This is amazing!
On Monday, ABC confirmed the upcoming episode of Modern Family will feature the first openly transgender child actor on television!
While transgender actors have starred in shows like Orange Is The New Black and Nashville, those are adult roles, rather than child ones.
But now, 8-year-old Jackson Millarker will play Lily's transgender friend, Tom, on Wednesday night's installment of the popular sitcom, titled "A Stereotypical Day."
The episode's director, Ryan Case, took to Instagram on Monday to post a precious picture with the young actor, and gushed about working with him in the caption, writing:
"This is Jackson Millarker. He's 8 years old, from Atlanta, and just happens to be transgender. He plays Lily's friend Tom in this week's Modern Family and he's wonderful. One of the many reasons I love being a part of this show. ❤️🎬💯"

This is so upsetting.
ICYMI, a transgender customer was not allowed to use their preferred fitting room at Urban Outfitters during a recent visit.
Earlier this week, Nicholas Gorham penned a powerful essay for Mic, detailing the disappointing discrimination they faced when attempting to try on some clothes at the fashion chain.
The actor explained that, while they may physically appear to look like a cisgender male — because they haven't taken hormones, undergone facial electrolysis, and don't have breasts — they are, in fact, transgender, writing:
"I wear basically all women's clothing, makeup, and hairdos and I identify as a gender-fluid trans person. I feel completely free in identifying as trans, though I'm conscious of the fact that others may not see me as such right away."
But, when the New York resident attempted to explain this to an employee at one of Urban's Los Angeles locations, they were pretty much ignored because of "policy" regulations.
While shopping with their gal pal, Tamara, the friends headed towards the women's changing area to try on their finds. The performer explained:
But the actress defended the "crazy B movie" in a new Instagram post, letting fans know that the film has major balls!
On Wednesday, the Fast 8 actress shared a picture of her in mid-movie-transition, in which she discussed the "fake hairy 'mangina'" she had to wear while playing a male assassin who undergoes sexual reassignment surgery against his will!
Even under all those fake male prosthetics, the 38-year-old admitted she "never felt more like a woman than when I played a man." Good to know!
Rodriguez also talked about risk she took by filming the "culture shock pic" at a time when the industry is "running low on edgy creativity," writing in the caption:
It's about time!
On Tuesday, word broke out that transgender actress Jen Richards has been cast in a recurring role on the upcoming fifth season of Nashville on CMT!
Richards will play Allyson Del Lago, a physical therapist who assists one of the series regulars. This is CMT's first transgender character, and the first time they will feature an openly transgender actor.
If you think you've seen the actress/writer/producer before, you have! Not only did she appear on Caitlyn Jenner's now-cancelled reality TV show I Am Cait, she made headlines when she criticized Mark Ruffalo's film Anything for having a cisgender actor (Matt Bomer) play someone trans.
Season five of Nashville begins January 5.
We are so proud of Jen, and we can't wait to see more trans visibility on television!
