Canadian PM Justin Trudeau To March n Toronto Gay Pride Parade, Will President Obama March In NYC’s?

Justin Trudeau

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will become one of the first world leaders to take part in a gay pride march, organizers’ of the Toronto event have announced.

Mr Trudeau will march in the July 3rd. parade alongside the city’s mayor and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, the first lesbian premier in Canada.

Not being the first pride parade the liberal Trudeau has been to, The newly elected leader tweeted: “Very much looking forward to being there again, this time as PM. #PrideTO.”

President Obama who began his political journey sympathetic to gay rights, but not deeply informed about them.  Today, just over a decade later, he has done more for gay rights than any other US president. In particular, the president has been a key part of landmark achievements on the freedom to marry, from the gutting of the Defense of Marriage Act to winning marriage in state houses and courtrooms. These historic successes, on his watch and with his help, meant that LGBT rights, and marriage equality specifically, would be at the center of the legacy he’d leave behind.

Would it not be a grand parting gesture for President Obama to walk in New York City’s Pride Parade?

President Obama think about it. And if you decide to march call me. I have a fabulash rainbow necktie for you to wear.

Family Research Council Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Blames Obama for the Equality Act

Tony Perkkkins


“The rest of the country may have gotten the message from Houston — but obviously, President Obama did not. A week after his sexual extremism took a drubbing at the ballot box (62-38%), the White House is back at it, pushing an agenda even more radical than Mayor Annise Parker’s bathroom ordinance! The same day the president was featured on a homosexual activist magazine as the ‘Ally of the Year’ (more like seven years), Obama seemed determined to prove it — announcing his support for the so-called Equality Act introduced in the House this summer. After review, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters, it’s clear that the administration ‘strongly supports’ the legislation that would dramatically alter the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to force Americans conformity on homosexuality and transgenderism.

“Of course, the president’s party was already trying to move legislation that would suffocate employers’ rights to run their workplace the way they see fit. Under its Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), profits give way to political correctness, as radicals impose their warped view of sexuality on every daycare, school administrator, and business across America. The Equality Act is so expansive it makes ENDA look like a conservative bill! And while the GOP may have an edge in votes, the White House is serving notice that Republicans had better be ready to push back — and soon.” – KKK-affiliated hate group leader and the man who gives gingers a bad name Tony Perkins, via press release.

Next I’m sure Ms. Pencil-dick Perkins will blame Canada. But not Justin Trudeau.  He’s dreamy. 

Trans Obama Heckler Jennicet Gutiérrez: My ‘Unplanned’ Action Was ‘Not About Just Me’ – REALLY?

Trans heckler White House


Jennicet Gutierrez, the undocumented trans activist who last heckled President Obama last monnth at the LGBT Pride reception at The White House, has written an op-ed at the Advocate in which she explains her “unplanned action” (Which by the way a little birdie tells us was planned all the time since Gutiérrez was invited as somebody’s +1 with the help of GetEqual. Allegedly.)

Gutiérrez writes:

“It became a critical opportunity to interrupt the president during his speech on behalf of my undocumented trans sisters who are suffering daily in immigrant detention centers.

“Though unplanned, my action was about continuing to place trans immigrant women at the front lines of our movement. It was the result of an urgent need for my community to collectively lift our voices and bring visibility.

Gutiérrez then goes on to trash Advocate writer Dawn Ennis and her original story.

“[Advocate columnist Dawn Ennis’s] piece diverted attention from the real issues at hand — the dire conditions of trans women of color. And this is appalling. The writer missed a tremendous opportunity to inform her readers about the serious injustice that I was trying to bring to light: undocumented trans women facing horrific and inhumane conditions in detention centers.”

Gutiérrez also adds:

“The interruption at the White House was not about just me. It is about the continuous state-sanctioned violence and oppression my community faces every day. It is about the silence inflicted upon us by media and many mainstream LGBTQ organizations.”

“If my organizations had been too concerned with respectability and politeness, our voices would still be silenced, the average person would still be unaware of the seriousness of trans women in detention centers, and trans women of color would still be abused and suffering in detention centers with no one to speak up for them.”

Now let me start out by saying the issues she brings up are deplorable.  As are many others in our community and they must be taken care of.  And while I am an old-time activist and do believe in protests and actions they must be well planned, done properly, and be inclusive.

But try as she might Gutiérrez is wrong when she says it was now “all about her”.  It was about her and her issue alone.  One that is important, but affects very few individuals in the trans community.  And she does not include undocumented L,G, and B detained immigrants who are also abused.  Her “community” it seems only turns out to be “T”.

 For Gutiérrez to say that its not “all about her” a trans undocumented woman of color.  Well that’s just bullshit and someone has to call her out.

Oh well I guess someone just did.





The Coalition of African American Pastors: “President Obama is a disgrace” For Mentioning Gay Rights At Selma March

Selma Obama March

The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) is incensed that President Obama mentioned President Barack Obama compared the civil rights movement to that gay Americans fighting for equality last Saturday in  “Ask your gay friend if it’s easier to be out and proud in America now than it was 30 years ago,” Obama said at the 50th Anniversary of the Bloody Sunday March.

“President Obama is a disgrace to the black community,” said. Rev. William Owens of the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP). “He is rewriting history. We didn’t suffer and die for gay marriage. We marched for opportunity, equality, justice, freedom from oppression. We are the true heirs of the civil rights movement. We have a new movement to reclaim the ‘real’ civil rights movement.”

“The LGBT community hijacked our movement, a movement they know nothing about,” Owens asserted. “President Obama is delusional to compare our struggle with the struggle for marriage equality. Gays have not had fire hoses or dogs unleashed at them. They have not been hung from trees or denied basic human rights.”

“President Obama didn’t march,” Owens continued. “He has benefited from those of us who did march, but for President Obama to say we marched so that gays would have the right to marry today, is a disgrace and a lie.”

CAAP has launched a new initiative called RISE, a grassroots network that unites “people of every race, creed, culture, and background,” to focus on defending faith, family, and justice.  Or in other words RISE unites “hateful homophobes of  every race, creed, culture, and background,” to focus on denying gay people their god given rights under the law.

Over 100 “Religious Leaders” Petition Obama To Put Religious Exemption In Upcoming LGBT Executive Order

exec orderWhile everyone is waiting to see if President Obama and the White House will add a “religious exemption” in a pending executive order which aims to protect LGBT government contract workers from discrimination.  About 120 so called “religious leaders” including: Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Christian Hispanic Leadership Conference; Joel Hunter, senior pastor of Northland-A Church Distributed; and Franklin Graham, president and CEO of The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association have signed a letter circulated by the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance (aka. the anti-gay Alliance Defense Fund) , to add a religious exemption to the pending order and also recommends the religious freedom protections that the Senate accepted in November 2013’s Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) bill (which is extremely broad) is not good enough and have asked for additional protections. The letter, in part states that religious organizations that contract with the government to provide such services as overseas relief and development with USAID will be harmed by the EO.

“Often are the best-qualified applicants for federal contracts or subcontracts. It would be counterproductive to bar them from offering their services to the federal government simply because of their legally protected religious convictions; it would be wrong to require them to violate those legally protected convictions in order to be eligible to receive federal contracts. Their exclusion from federal contracting would be diametrically opposed to the Administration’s commitment to having ‘all hands on deck’ in the fight against poverty and other dire social problems.”

In 2008 President Obama campaigned against the Bush-era discrimination policy, that allowed faith based services to receive federal monies and contracts. Said Obama: “If you get a federal grant, you can’t use that grant money to proselytize to the people you help and you can’t discriminate against them — or against the people you hire — on the basis of their religion.” Now the question is. will President Obama keep his campaign promise and not allow discrimination, bigotry and hate to hide under the banner of “religion”

Freedom to Work Shills It’s Dangerous Version of ENDA On The Coattails of Obama’s Executive Order‏

Freedom to work


President Obama spoke to BIG money LGBT donors at a Democratic National Committee gala in New York City on Tuesday night only one day after the White House announced that Obama plans to sign the executive order that would bar federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT workers and reminding the deep pocketed attendees of the accomplishments over the course of his administration and saying that much more needed to be done.

Speaking onstage at Gotham Hall before an American flag, Obama received a prolonged standing ovation when he said he told his staff to prepare an executive order that would bar federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT workers.

We don’t benefit as a country or an economy — businesses don’t benefit if they’re leaving talent off the field,” Obama said. “And that’s why I’ve directed my staff to prepare for my signature, an executive order prohibiting discrimination by federal contractors on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity…Because in the United States of America, who you are and who you love shouldn’t be a fireable offense.”

But Obama said efforts must continue to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, legislation that would bar discrimination among public and private employers, not just federal contractors. The executive order he plans to sign doesn’t “reach everyone that needs to be reached,” Obama said.

“It would be better, by the way, if Congress passed a more comprehensive law that didn’t just cover federal contractors,” Obama said. “And we need to keep working on that, so don’t take the pressure off Congress.”

But many questions remain about the planned executive order, such as whether it’ll contain a religious exemption like the very broad and much criticized religious exemption crafted by Tico Almeida and Freedom to Work in the current version of ENDA that if passed, would write LGBT discrimination into law by allowing businesses and groups who claim they part of a religious movement the right to refuse to hire and terminate LGBT employees without any legal repercussions.

In an interview with the Washington Blade Almeida took the opportunity to shill his dangerous version of ENDA.

“Those were the strongest and most thorough remarks I’ve ever heard from President Obama in support of ENDA,” said last nights speech “The president very much deserved the strong applause he received when he discussed the upcoming executive order, and he was right to say that we must all keep the pressure on Congress.”

Almeida and Freedom to Work it seems is still pushing its dangerous version of ENDA of which Almeida admitted last year at Netroots Nation 2013 in San Jose that the very open religious exemption was specifically written  “just to get ENDA passed’.   Thankfully it has not but has instead drawn the ire and condemnation of many LGBT activists and organizations.

Still many questions remain about the Presidents planned Executive Order, such as whether or not it will indeed contain its own religious exemption.

A meeting is planned at the White House on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. between administration officials and LGBT advocates to discuss the planned LGBT non-discrimination order, but no other information was given

Lets just hope that Tico Almeida and Freedom to Work isn’t one of the “advocates” or groups invited to attend.

City Of Los Angeles Calls On President Obama To Grant Asylum To Persecuted Russian LGBT’s

Los Angeles

Tuesday afternoon the city council of Los Angeles unanimously approved a resolution calling on President Obama and the federal government to grant asylum to the Russian LGBT citizens who are being  persecuted on the basis of  Russia’s anti-gay laws.

The document calls on U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to “take action to stop the harassment, abuse and murder of homosexuals around the world” and calls upon the U.S. government to make tough international public statements condemning the persecution of sexual minorities, and to use all available means to pressure upon the Russian government.

Member of the City Council of Los Angeles and Tom LyaBonzh, which deals with the supervision of the participation of the city in the twin city program,  joined the author of the resolution Mitch O’Ferrell  and board member Mike Bonin. at a rainbow rainbow flag-raising ceremony after the resolutions signing to send a message of support and solidarity from the residents of Los Angeles to LGBT individuals who face persecution in Russia.

Los Angeles which is the  sister city of Saint Petersburg, the first Russian regions where the anti-gay laws were passed has not broken ties with the “Sister Cities” program.

President Obama FINALLY Speaks Out Against Russia’s Anti-Gay Laws – Video

President Obama Jay Leno

President Obama finally spoke out against Russia’s anti-gay laws during an interview with Jay Leno on NBC’s “The Tonight Show”  Tuesday  saying that he has “no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.”

LENO:   Well, something that shocked me about Russia — and I’m surprised this is not a huge story — suddenly, homosexuality is against the law. I mean, this seems like Germany: Let’s round up the Jews, let’s round up the gays, let’s round up the blacks. I mean, it starts with that. You round up people who you don’t
— I mean, why is not more of the world outraged at this?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I’ve been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to people’s basic freedoms, that whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country. And I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.

Now, what’s happening in Russia is not unique. When I traveled to Africa, there were some countries that are doing a lot of good things for their people, who we’re working with and helping on development issues, but in some cases have persecuted gays and lesbians. And it makes for some uncomfortable press conferences sometimes. But one of the things that I think is very important for me to speak out on is making sure that people are treated fairly and justly, because that’s what we stand for. And I believe that that’s a precept that’s not unique to America, that’s something that should apply everywhere. (Applause.)

LENO:  Do you think it will affect the Olympics?

THE PRESIDENT:  I think Putin and Russia have a big stake in making sure the Olympics work, and I think they understand that for most of the countries that participate in the Olympics, we wouldn’t tolerate gays and lesbians being treated differently. They’re athletes, they’re there to compete. And if Russia wants to uphold the Olympic spirit, then every judgment should be made on the track, or in the swimming pool, or on the balance beam, and people’s sexual orientation shouldn’t have anything to do with it. 

Of course this isn’t an “official” White House Presidential denouncement, and it only took a late night talk show host to get Obama to say anything on the anti-gay human rights abuses happening in Russia, but at least he finally said something.

And as for President Obama not having ” patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.” Then I am sure that at the White House signing the Executive Order against LGBT discrimination as we speak.
