Umm… Did Kansas Governor Sam Brownback Just Remove Non-Discrimination Protections For LGBT State Employees???

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikCrazzzzy

Oh and women can no longer vote!

… is what we expect Kansas Governor Sam Brownback might say next after pulling something like this.

He rescinded an executive order that protected state employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

This man literally undid the good that former Governor Kathleen Sebelius did for the LGBT community in Kansas.

The Human Rights Campaign's national field director Marty Rouse issued a statement:

The Mormon Church Comes Out In Support Of LGBT Legislation… Well, Sort Of!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikGIFs

no title

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), also known as the Mormon Church, has always had a strained relationship with the LGBT community.

For some dumb reason, LGBT and religion don't always mix well.

That's why it's so great that the Mormon Church is supporting LGBT nondiscrimination legislation!

The Mormon leaders had a rare news conference and that's when they announced their support for the LGBT nondiscrimination bills!

Sister Neill Marriott of the LDS Church's Young Women's program said:

​Salvation Army Documents Leak & Show It's Still Discriminating Against The LGBT Community

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBusiness Blitz

Ugh, this is very disappointing to hear.

The Salvation Army has had their share of scandals when it comes to the LGBT community, and despite what they say publicly, it seems that they're still pretty darn homophobic. Well, at least when it comes to the people who work for them.

The Methodist organization claims to be non-discriminatory against anyone, including the LGBT community, but internal documents that have been leaked say something much different. For example, it's illegal to not hire someone based on sexual orientation, but the Salvation Army will sure as heck tell you what you can and can't do about your sexuality. In a memo written by midwest Commissioner Paul Seiler, titled "LGBT issues," everything is laid plain. Including the mention that "This is not for public use, including social media of any sort."

Within the memo, the SA explains that they will police the relationships of the organization's officers, because:

Although he's known this for a very long time and came out to his closest friends and family members quite a while ago, he hid his story from the world until he was inspired to share it while attending a seminar.

Ty explained to People magazine on Tuesday evening:

Olympic Host Cities Now Have To Sign New Anti-Discrimination Clause As Part Of Contract! Finally!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayOlympicsAmazing

The IOC has amended the standard Olympic host city's contract to include an anti-discrimination clause to protect LGBT athletes!

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) sure took their sweet time protecting the rights of their LGBT athletes.

But we guess after the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, it was time to take a stand.

Russia's anti-gay "propaganda" law must've been the straw that broke the camel's back. Glad it got the IOC to put a special clause in the contract all Olympic host cities must sign.

Hollywood Isn't So Gay-Friendly After All?? It's True, According To THIS!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBusiness BlitzGIFs

This is just sad.

It seems like Hollywood accepts the LGBT community with open arms, but this a study of 5,700 SAG-AFTRA members might prove that isn't the case.

UCLA's LBGT-focused Williams Institute discovered that the majority of lesbian, gay, and bisexual performers believe directors and producers are "biased against LGBT performers."

53 percent to be exact.

SO SAD.

The study also claimed that MORE THAN a third of participants have witnessed some sort of "disrespectful treatment" to entertainers on set who identify as LGBT — including anti-gay comments.
