Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump Chooses anti-LGBTQ Prosperity Gospel ‘Charlatan’ as Partner for First Appearance Since Leaving White House Ivanka Trump, who tweeted out on January 6 that the domestic terrorists attacking the Capitol in a Trump-incited insurrection were "American Patriots," before deleting the post, has long been rumored to be interested in running for elected office.

John Olbrys

Gay Rower Was Part of Secret LGBTQ Military Network During "Don’t Ask Don’t Tell" John Olbrys is now living openly as an officer in the Coast Guard, continuing to row and now finding love “I did have friends at the academy who knew I was gay, but they were also fellow queer folks who were at the school who were running the same gay underground that we created,” Olbrys says. “But none of my teammates knew. It was very difficult for me to figure out aside from my queer allies who I could tell and feel safe telling without running the risk of that being the wrong person and all of a sudden I’m being thrown out because of my identity.”

Belgian Prime Minister Flies Rainbow Flag in Response to Gay Man’s Murder Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo flew the rainbow LGBTQ Pride flag outside his office on Tuesday in response to the fatal stabbing of a gay man in a park in Beveren, a city just outside of Antwerp. “In our country, there is no place for hatred. Love wins,” De Croo said in a tweet showing the rainbow flag. The body of the victim, identified as 42-year-old David Polfliet, of Sint-Niklaas, was found on Saturday in a local park. Police say they believe he was lured to the park by someone he met on a dating app.

Tyler Posey

Teen Wolf's Tyler Posey Chats About Being Sexually Fluid and Five-Month Sobriety During Lockdown: 'I'm Not Sober Anymore' Tyler - a self-described 'lazy pothead' - spent his five months on the wagon 'meditating every day and praying to a higher power.' Posey created his free subscription OnlyFans account back in September, and a month later he revealed he was sexually fluid. 'I did this live on OnlyFans and they were asking me stuff that horny people would ask you: "Have you been with a man? Have you been with the opposite sex? What was it like?" And I was just being honest about it, because no one's ever asked me before,' he explained.

More Than 11,000 Asylum Seekers Have Been LGBTQ Three out of four LGBT asylum seekers were male and more than half were from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. A large number also came from Ghana and Mexico. People claiming asylum came from about 90 countries including one each from unlikely countries suck as Canada and Australia.

Alexander Ludwig

First Look: Alexander Ludwig and Stephen Amell's New TV Series, "Heels" Centered on a family-owned wrestling promotion, the Georgia-set show follows Jack Spade (Amell) and his younger brother/rival Ace (Ludwig) as they war over their late father's legacy. In the ring, Ace is usually the hero and Jack is his nemesis, a.k.a. the heel, "but in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to — or hard to leave behind," reads the official synopsis. These are both Amell and Ludwig's first TV roles since Arrow and Vikings, respectively, ended in 2020.

Local Bakery Sued for Alleged LGBTQ Discrimination Two former employees claim harassment after being fired only one day apart Gilbert Johnson, who was a general manager, says that after receiving sexualized commentary from his supervisor’s husband, who also happened to work for Dessert Gallery, he noticed a shift in how he was treated by his supervisor. One of Johnson’s responsibilities was hiring new staff. Johnson claims that after he hired a transgender woman, he was no longer allowed to hire employees when his supervisor discovered the gender identity of the new employee.

The Pros and Cons of Binge-Watching Your Favorite TV Shows I think that kind of conversation is what I miss most when a show dumps its episodes all at once. It becomes impossible to talk about it in any sort of organized way. Everyone is on a different episode and some people finished everything the first weekend and some people keep saying they “will get to it” but the lift of ten episodes feels too daunting for them to get into when there’s an expectation to get to the end as fast as possible. It makes finishing a season of a show — or an entire show — feel like an accomplishment instead of a journey. Shows are good. Episodes are good. Stopping to think about what you saw and talking about it with other people who just saw the same thing is good. We should do more good things.

A Queer, Heretical Yiddish Play Too Edgy for 1906 Lives Again on Zoom The play tells the story of an otherwise pious Jewish family that runs a brothel. Though the parents try to prevent their teenage daughter from getting involved in the family business, she falls in love with one of the prostitutes and a power struggle erupts. “God of Vengeance” played to rapt audiences throughout Europe and opened in New York in 1907 in Yiddish. Some 16 years later, another production (this one in English) opened in Greenwich Village in New York and moved to the Apollo Theater, making it the first Broadway play to portray a lesbian relationship in a sympathetic light — and to include a lesbian kiss. Members of the religious and cultural establishment were outraged, and shut it down. Available to stream 8:30 p.m. March 20 to 11:30 p.m. March 23. 100 minutes. In English with some Yiddish. $18-$36; $54 includes live Q&A with cast members at 4 p.m. March 21, 2021.
