​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:

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.

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.

Authors M.V. Lee Badgett and Jody L. Herman said:
