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.”

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

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?

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.

History Made- Austin First Major US City To Stand With Intersex Youth OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian transgender queer bisexual nonbinary

History Made- Austin First Major US City To Stand With Intersex Youth

The city council for Austin, the capital of Texas and home to nearly a million people, has formally adopted a resolution that condemns gender “correction” surgeries that are performed on newborns and children that are intersex or born with intersex conditions. Such surgeries are usually performed to “correct” a child’s genitals to align with their gender assigned at birth, often without consent or without parents having the express knowledge or understanding of intersex and disorders that cause differences in sex development. Intersex people have spoken out against these procedures in recent years, which don’t always actually “correct” a child’s sex and can lead to complications and dysphoria, especially since some intersex people do not learn that they’re intersex or what intersex is until later in life.

Missouri Makes History With State's First Male Homecoming Queen OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian transgender queer bisexual nonbinary

Missouri Makes History With State’s First Male Homecoming Queen

A high school student in Columbia, Missouri has just made history by becoming the first-ever male student to win the title of homecoming queen in his state. Zachary Willmore, a senior at Rock Bridge High School, won the distinction, in part, because he chose to run for queen rather than king. Early in October, he posted a poll to his Instagram page asking followers to vote as to whether he should seek the title of king or queen. This isn’t the first time Willmore has challenged his school’s preconceived notions about gender, either. He has challenged the school dress code on more than one occasion, wearing more femme or abstract outfits. Willmore said, “Teachers were allowed to make the call of what was appropriate. Many times I did feel like they could target students, and I did feel targeted in some scenarios.” Zachary posted a video to his TikTok account of his big win. It also shows the school cheerleading squad–of which Zachary is a member–rushing the field to congratulate him.

LGBTQ+ Afghans Escape To Britain As Taliban Hunts For Them

A group of LGBTQ Afghans who fled their home country have arrived in Britain, the first in a wave that London says it will evacuate, as advocates warn they have received calls from hundreds more people who fear Taliban persecution. The 29 people, including students and activists who spoke out about their rights in Afghanistan, are the first of many more vulnerable LGBTQ Afghans who will arrive “in the coming months,” the Foreign Office said Saturday. It did not detail how they managed to leave. The United States and European nations have frozen key sources of funding, wary of Taliban promises that it has changed its harsh ways. During its previous era in power, from 1996 until 2001, those who broke the rules, not least women and gay men, could face execution.

Record Number Of LGBTQ+ Candidates Running In Elections OutBuro lgbt professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian transgender queer bisexual nonbinary

Record Number Of LGBTQ+ Candidates Running In Elections

The LGBTQ Victory Fund has just released the 2021 Out on the Trail report, which details the number and diversity of LGBTQ candidates for office in 2021. At least 410 out LGBTQ people ran or are running for offices with elections in 2021, a 7.3 percent increase compared to the last odd-numbered election cycle in 2019, when 382 out candidates ran. Of the 410 candidates, 237 will be on the ballot this month, an 18.5 percent jump from 2019, the previous record for the number of LGBTQ candidates in an odd-numbered election year. Mayor Annise Parker, President and CEO of the LGBTQ Victory Fund said, “LGBTQ candidates are running in historic numbers and increasingly reflect the diversity of America, with more LGBTQ people of color, bisexual, queer and non-binary leaders choosing public service as the way to make change. Next week, we have an opportunity to elect hundreds of LGBTQ leaders who can challenge the anti-LGBTQ forces influencing school boards, city councils and state legislatures across the country.”
