'Public outcry gets Publix to change its bad policy on HIV prevention medication' & other Tue midday news briefs

Following outcry, Publix announces it will begin covering HIV prevention medication - In spite of today's climate, we still win when we band together and raise necessary hell the right way.

Why Are Murders Of Gay And Bi Men Up A Staggering 400 Percent? - One guess why:

 The great majority of these homicides, which include killers who lured their queer male victims using social media apps, weren’t committed by men involved with neo-Nazis or white supremacist groups. But those hate groups and their allies may feel emboldened by a president who talked about the neo-Nazi rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year as having “very fine people” on “both sides.” And according to another ADL report, white supremacists hate groups are organizing on campuses, targeting college students. Those factors, in turn, have added to the culture of fear in which rising violence against LGBTQ individuals has taken place.

 Be careful. People are being really stupid out there. Don't be lured. De-escalate the situation if you can, fight like hell with anything you can if you have to. No need to be polite.
