'LGBTQs shouldn't celebrate after Trump's empty religious liberty order' & other Mon. midday news briefs

No, LGBTQ Americans Aren’t In The Clear After Trump’s Religious Liberty Order - Michelangelo Signorile has been very accurate with predictions of how the lgbtq community would fare in the "Age of Trump." In this day and age, his pieces should be required reading for anyone worried about our future. And he is again with another good assessment of our situation.

Former University of Iowa athletics administrator wins $1.43 million in Title IX lawsuit - Under the radar but just as important.

Support LGBTQ Muslims - Yes, LGBTQ Muslims exist and they deserve our support. We are all family and must lift each up other. That's how we defeat hate.

History Shows Why LGBTQ People Shouldn’t Support the Far-Right - A necessary history lesson for all of you gay Milo Yiannopoulos supporters out there.

How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America - Now is a perfect time to revisit the 2013 booklet I published online. Before Trump taking the White House and the anti-lgbtq right was pushing the "radical homosexuals want to persecute Christians" talking point, they were heavily pushing lies, anecdotal drivel, and bad science to falsely claim that "homosexuality is a dangerous lifestyle." 

Like so:

Groups like the Family Research Council, the Liberty Counsel, the American Family Association, etc. are probably a bit reluctant to revisit those days, so let's reminisce. At the very least, it serves to remind folks that their claim about "protecting Christians" is much in line with the other stuff they used to push with the objective being to stigmatize the lgbtq community and undermine our attempts to gain equality for ourselves, our families, and our children.
