'Court rules against florist who discriminated against gay couple' & other Thur midday news briefs

Court rules florist Barronelle Stutzman cannot use 'religious liberty' excuse to discriminate.

Washington Supreme Court rules against florist who discriminated against same-sex couple - This JUST came in. It was a high profile case and it could give Trump an excuse to sign a so-called "religious liberty" executive order. I almost wish he would. I've had a rotten attitude since he was elected and I know the lgbt community have been primed to start fighting. It would be almost a sin to get all worked up for nothing. Bring it on! 

Laverne Cox References ‘Hidden Figures’ To Make Powerful Point About Trans Rights - And it was ON POINT. 

 Carol Swain Can’t Go Out In Public With Her Female Friends Without Wondering ‘Do People Think We’re Gay?’ - Girlfriend, what? For those who don't know, Swain affiliates herself with the anti-lgbt hate group the Family Research Council.

  First-ever UN LGBT rights watchdog seeks ‘open’ dialogue - It's good to know that even Trump can't stop progress.  

Business alliances forming across the U.S. to argue for LGBT+ inclusion - Remember the point of the last news brief? Good.
