'Congressman Cicilline - Pandemic relief must include LGBTQ protections ' & other Thur midday news briefs

Congressman David Cicilline

Rep. David Cicilline: Pandemic Relief Must Include LGBTQ Protections - Rep. Cicilline is an openly gay Congressman. He is right on when it comes to this issue and also proves how representation in always important. Don't be afraid of noting and voting for our own (with vetting, of course).

Puerto Rico government sharply criticized over response to LGBTQ murders - We got serious problems in Puerto Rico and the government isn't doing what it's supposed to do.

Lesbians, gays live in fear of attacks in Kenyan refugee camp - the struggle is real, y'all. 

Biden Helped Make LGBT History—Will That Be Enough? - He's not Trump is enough for me, but this helps.

The Family Research Council wants your money to help it stop . . . 'the return of 'Obamaphones?''

Just in case you have nothing better to do with your money (like saving it up because of COVID-19, buying supplies because of COVID-19, donating to hospitals or wonderful charities because of COVID-19), hate group the Family Research Council wants you to contribute to its fundraiser.

I'll spare you the link, but as you can see by the graphic above,  FRC and its president Tony Perkins, your donation will help them fight the "evil liberal" influences such as (in the group's own words):

carbon emission mandates, 
visa extensions for immigrants, 
a postal bailout, corporate pay equity, 
the return of “Obamaphones,” and more!

This list gets me angry on so many levels. The most noticeable being where the hell are the "radical homosexuals?" We're not even on the list nor in any of the rest of the fundraising appeal. Do we not make enough money for FRC anymore? We got dumped over Obamaphones?

Come on folks, there has to be a drag queen reading to children somewhere in the country!
