Alphonso David Fired by Human Rights Campaign After Cuomo Firestorm

After Cuomo’s sexual harassment firestorm our partners at the Advocate are reporting that the Human Rights Campaign has fired Alfonso David who had been the organization’s president since 2019 and was being widely criticized for helping former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo respond to sexual harassment accusations. David released a statement Sunday night saying he had been asked to resign even though an investigation of the Cuomo matter found no wrongdoing on his part. The chairs disputed this in an email leaked to the media on Monday morning and David responded with another statement defending his position he has now responded to his firing by saying, “Expect legal challenge.” Cox and Patterson said his Sunday night statement contained “significant untruths” and that the Sidley Austin investigation found that his work (sexual harassment cover-up efforts) for Cuomo violated HRC’s policy on conflict of interest. Sources told the New York Times the decision to fire David was unanimous except for two abstentions from members of the foundation board. Big news. Expect a legal challenge. In other words, he’s not going quietly. And that just confirms he does not have HRC or the LGBTQ community’s best interest in mind. What is further appalling is that he is a former Civil Rights attorney.

See the New York Times article here:

His Wikipedia page has already been updated to indicate him as the FORMER President of HRC: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphonso_David

Alphonso David (born 1970) is an American lawyer, LGBT civil rights activist,[1] and former president of the Human Rights Campaign.[2] In August 2019, he became the president of the Human Rights Campaign. He was the first civil rights lawyer and first person of color to serve as president of the organization,[3][4][5] but was fired from his role as president on September 6, 2021 after it was revealed that he advised former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo when he was accused of sexually assaulting women.[6]

Damn – that was fast.

Catholic schools can’t fire teachers for being gay

LGBTQ+ Nation is reporting that a federal court has ruled that a North Carolina catholic school wrongfully fired a teacher in 2014 just because he was gay. Last Friday US District judge Max Cockburn ruled that the Charlotte Catholic high school and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Charlotte, North Carolina wrongfully fired gay substitute drama and English teacher Lonnie Billard in 2014. Cockburn ruled that the school violated federal protections against sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The judge wrote that the school’s actions weren’t protected by constitutional rights to religious freedom. He also ruled that “the school’s action didn’t fit into exemptions to labor law that give religious institutions leeway to require certain employees to adhere to religious teachings.” In 2014 the school fired Billard after he announced his wedding to a man on Facebook. He posted about his upcoming wedding in October 2014 and was informed by an assistant principal several weeks later that he no longer had a job with the school.

Tens of thousands protest for gay marriage in Switzerland OutBuro LGBT professional entrepreneur online networking community gay lesbian bisexual transgender nonbinary

Tens of thousands protest for gay marriage in Switzerland

Tens of thousands protested in Switzerland on Saturday for the legalization of same-sex marriage in the alpine country the Associated Press reports the protests came ahead of a national referendum on September 26th and the legalization of gay marriage which has already been introduced in many other European countries including Germany, Austria, France, and the Netherlands. So far same-sex couples in Switzerland can only get official approval for civil unions which are not on equal footing as marriages. If a majority votes for the legalization of same-sex marriage in Switzerland this would allow couples to adopt children. In addition, lesbian couples would have easier access to sperm donations if they wanted to start a family and it would be easier for foreign partners to get Swiss citizenship.

The LGBTQ+ Generational Wealth Gap Is a Serious Issue OutBuro LGBT professional entrepreneur online networking community gay lesbian bisexual transgender nonbinary

The LGBTQ+ Generational Wealth Gap Is a Serious Issue

It’s no secret that LGBTQ+ people face a range of financial challenges that heterosexual people simply don’t need to contend with. Less discussed are the effects of financial discrimination on building LGBTQ+ generational wealth, in reality, the American dream of buying a home, getting married, having kids, finding a good job, and investing in a 401k is out of reach for many LGBTQ+ people according to a survey by TD Ameritrade. Almost two-thirds of LGBTQ+ millennials say they are unlikely to achieve these goals by age 40 compared to fewer than half of straight millennials. To find out more about this problem in the LGBTQ+ community pick up the newest issue of HotSpots on stands now.
