Last week, the Health and Human Services Committee in the House of Minnesota approved the “conversion therapies” ban by a 10-6 vote.
Utah and Minnesota join the national effort launched by a dozen states and the District of Columbia to ban “conversion therapies” for minors.
This is good news for the transgender community in Minnesota since the Department of Education has decided to fight bullying of LGBTQ students by approving a new toolkit. This will allow all public and charter schools to welcome non-binary students under the best conditions.
Like California and New Jersey, the state of Washington could adopt a law which would prohibit 'anti-gay cures' to minors.
The battle always continues in Minnesota. The Minnesota Association of Professional Employees (MAPE) voted and unanimously against a referendum which can place the ban of gay marriage in the constitution of the State.
President Obama opposes a state ballot initiative in Minnesota which would define the marriage as only between a man and a woman in the state's constitution.
From now on, the school district of Anoka-Hennepin in Minnesota doesn't require teachers to remain neutral concerning the sexual orientation anymore. It should help to stop LGBT bullying.
Two years ago, I had shared with you a sad news concerning the Reverend Oliver White who had lost his church for his support for the LGBT community.
A few days ago, the Reverend contacted me to tell us a good news: he is back with a new church and he even supports more our community!
The last week, Lezbelib gave the award of stupidity to Michele Bachmann, a congresswoman in Minnesota, and she amply deserves it. GOProud decided to meet this anti-gay candidate to the next presidential elections.
We always need to distribute some awards for stupidy and this week, we've got our winner ! Michele Bachmann, congresswoman in Minnesota, continues to affirm that gay men are a health risk for the public health, that it is a choice to be gay and that gay parents are inferior to straight parents.
