High School Students Oppose School Board Protestors Claiming Book “Teaches Kids How To Be Gay”

Parents and other area residents showed up at a Community High School District 99 school board meeting in suburban Chicago on Monday night, holding signs that said “NO PORN” and attacking one specific book that had been approved for school libraries in the district: Gender Queer, an autobiographical graphic novel by Maia Kobabe. Parent Terry Newsome said at the meeting that the book is “liberal code for teaching children how to perform oral sex, anal sex, wear strap-on dildos.” Another father who was not named told the Chicago Sun-Times that the book made him “sick.” He hadn’t read it, he had just watched a YouTube video about it. But students weren’t having it. Senior Lauren Pierret said “Let’s not present getting rid of Gender Queer as censoring our children from sex. It’s homophobia.”

Biden Plan Will Ensure Same-Sex Couples Get Back Tax Benefits - OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian queer bisexual

Biden Plan Will Ensure Same-Sex Couples Get Back Tax Benefits

Some married same-sex couples may get retroactive federal income tax refunds if Congress passes the latest version of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act. The bill, a sweeping social and environmental spending plan, would make those who were legally married before 2010 eligible for certain benefits that are now otherwise unavailable, CNBC reports. After the Supreme Court struck down the main part of the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013, allowing the federal government to recognize same-sex marriages, the Internal Revenue Service started letting couples in these marriages file amended tax returns — jointly as a couple — back to 2010. But under the current version of the Build Back Better Act, same-sex couples married before that date could file amended returns back to the year of their marriage. Five states offered legally recognized marriages to same-sex couples before 2010 — Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont — as did the District of Columbia.

GOP Politicians Try To Shut Down A Smalltown LGBTQ Support Group. Here's What Happened - OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian queer bisexual

GOP Politicians Try To Shut Down A Smalltown LGBTQ Support Group. Here’s What Happened

Fulton County Pennsylvania’s community library is host to an LGBTQ+ group’s biweekly meeting. This has upset two members of the county commission. Fulton County Library director Jamie Brambley said, “There’s really no other place for that community to meet in the county… to have a safe comfortable meeting place.” Already working on a shoestring budget after their funding had been severely cut, the library had requested an extra $3,000 to their measly $15,000 annual budget. But when a flier advertising the support group to the county’s minuscule number of queer residents was brought to their attention, the two men denied the request. They accused the librarians of supporting “hate groups.” Commissioner Randy Bunch told the local newspaper, “If we support them, we have to support Proud Boys and Black Lives Matter.” Commissioner Stuart Ulsh asked, “Do we want Muslims moving into our county?” Emily Best, a local activist and former Democratic candidate for the state senate, started a GoFundMe to raise the money the library needed. Over $21,000 has been donated to the library so far.

Olympics Ask Sports Federations To Have Greater Inclusion For Transgender And Nonbinary Athletes

The International Olympic Committee this week recommended that elite sports organizations reevaluate how they include transgender, nonbinary and intersex athletes and determine their eligibility for competition alongside cisgender athletes, in a nonbinding and wide-ranging update to the organization’s previous policies. The IOC’s guidelines are not legally binding, and implementation is up to international sports federations — which establish rules for their sport. Still, LGBTQ+ advocacy groups and trans and nonbinary athletes celebrated the new focus on inclusion and non-discrimination

Trucks In Texas Have Huge Signs Saying “Trans Lives Are Precious”

Trucks displaying positive messages like “Trans lives are precious” were driven around Texas’s state capital during Transgender Awareness Week in a pointed message about the state’s government. After lawmakers in Austin spent a year attacking transgender youth – forcing trans young people, their families, and activists to go to the state capitol time and again to fight misinformation and prejudice – now the city is getting a positive message about trans people. The online trans and queer health care platform Folx Health put the trucks on the streets of Austin with trans-positive messages like the one above, as well as “Protect trans youth.” Another message on the trucks is the name of the platform itself.

Remember, in the US Sexual Harassment policies have been in place since the late 70’s and still today it continues to happen. Just turn on the news. Now consider all the cases that do not make the news and those that go unreported. Discrimination and harassment of LGBTQ+ employees are no different. Just having policies is not enough. We must provide visibility and insight to make the change and ensure it is effective in its goals to protect.

The Search For The Gay Gene Underway- Should Queer People Support It - OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian transgender queer bisexual nonbinary

The Search For The Gay Gene Underway- Should Queer People Support It?

To many of us, the attractions of same gender attraction are pretty obvious. But some scientists continue to wonder why people do it. If gay sex isn’t reproductive, why hasn’t natural selection weeded out all the queers? Why, after all this evolutionary time, isn’t everybody straight Increasingly, people think that sexuality is biologically innate. Sexual preferences shouldn’t be changed and they can’t be, simple as that. Per the famous Gaga refrain, we are “born this way.” Indeed, scientists may have helped to promote these beliefs. Some say not only that genes largely decide your sexuality, but also that genes help to explain why gay people exist at all.

Genetic research on sexuality and other complex behavior traits is growing fast. Some LGBTQ+ advocates claim it shows that being gay is “natural” and “not a choice,” and that the proliferation of sexual genetic research is something to straightforwardly celebrate. Genetic research on homosexuality began in earnest in the 1990s. Scientists claimed that genes on the X chromosomes are associated with male homosexuality. Long before then, ‘eugenics,’ or social movements to control human reproduction in order to increase the “fitness” of national populations, played a role in the oppression of gay people.

Eugenics research reached its peak in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, leading to the forced sterilization and genocide of not only queer people, but also Jewish and disabled peoples in Nazi Germany, and largely Black, brown and immigrant peoples in the U.S. Even after the second world war, eugenic policies and movements continued to haunt LGBTQ+ communities. Would the discovery of a “gay gene” lead to Gay Equality, or Gattaca?

Here Are The Anti-LGBTQ Republicans That Have Done Drag OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian transgender queer bisexual nonbinary

Here Are The Anti-LGBTQ Republicans That Have Done Drag

Sen. Josh Hawley got an unexpected drag makeover on Twitter this week and now life will never be the same again. It all started when the 41-year-old homophobe told “Axios on HBO” that he plans to make toxic masculinity a signature political issue because far too
many people on “the left” are telling guys like him, “You’re part of the problem. … Your masculinity is inherently problematic.” This prompted political strategist Rick Wilson, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, to tweet: “I hope no one photoshops Josh Hawley in drag makeup. That would be totally wrong for the champion of American masculinity. Totally. Wrong.” This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Republican in Drag. Who can forget that cringe-worthy video of Donald Trump sexually assaulting Rudy Giuliani dressed in drag?

Functional Cure For HIV Approved For Human Trials OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian transgender queer bisexual nonbinary

Functional Cure For HIV Approved For Human Trials

Human trials are about to begin on a potentially groundbreaking HIV treatment that is being hailed as a possible “cure” for the virus. According to a press release from Excision Biotherapeutics, a biotech company, America’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the treatment’s progression to Phase I/II human trials. Excision’s potential cure is known as EBT-101 and is being developed in partnership with researchers from Temple University in Philadelphia. Excision’s CEO Daniel Dornbusch explained to Philadelphia magazine that the term “functional cure” means small amounts of HIV could remain in the body, but not at a level that would make the affected person test positive for the virus.
