    Based on the rate of corruption in Tanzania, half of that $10 million was never destined for the "kids who will go without water and food" anyway.

    A developed country like Denmark has a responsibility (and right) in ensuring that its aid goes to the right countries.
    Well then $5 million. Still people without.

    Instead of abandoning the grays in Tanzania, why not set something up for them?

    There is a real issue with trans murders in the US - Queerty have confirmed that the first reported trans murder of 2019 has occurred already:



    Again, if anyone wants to question why we "extreme LGBTQ groups" need to force acknowledgement and demand equality, this is a primary reason.

    But is there any proof she was murdered solely down to being trans?

    Right. So while this is of course unfortunate, it may not be related to LGBTQ. There are probably non-trans people who have also been murdered this year.

    Okay bisc, I was with for the first part of the comment, but cis-people getting killed says nothing about if this was a hate crime or not. Trans people do get killed at way higher rates, trans women especially

    Right - the trans murder rate in the US (and worldwide) is a phenomena, it’s absolutely atrocious and is tracked by EHRC as trans murders are almost exclusively trans murder a as a result of the person being trans.

    Luxembourg PM takes Arab leaders to task on gay rights at summit

    Xavier Bettel says his same-sex marriage would condemn him to death in some countries

    Luxembourg’s prime minister, Xavier Bettel, has confronted Arab leaders over the repression of gay rights, telling them his same-sex marriage would condemn him to death in some of their countries.

    The conference room at a summit of EU and Arab states fell silent when Bettel made his statement, according to a German TV journalist.

    Retweeting this account, Bettel wrote: “Saying nothing was not an option for me.” The tweet was signed with his initials.

    Xavier Bettel (@Xavier_Bettel) Nichts sagen war für mich keine Option.XB https://t.co/g19bc88V1H
    February 27, 2019

    Bettel,
    the first EU leader to be married to a same-sex partner, had planned to make the intervention before arriving at the summit in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, which was the first gathering between the EU and Arab League.

    Homosexuality is punishable by death under sharia law in Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen. Other countries in the region prohibit same-sex acts, including Algeria, Morocco, Oman, Tunisia, Syria, Kuwait and some of the United Arab Emirates.

    Syria, which is suspended from the Arab League, was not represented at the summit.

    Bettel’s point is underscored by the treatment of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Egypt, the country that hosted the summit.

    Homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, but LGBT people are frequently detained on euphemistic charges such as “debauchery”. After the Egyptian president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, came to power in a coup in 2013, he “appeared to embrace persecution of gays and trans people as a political strategy” according to a report by Human Rights Watch.

    I think we are many generations away from a gay US President, but exciting to think about the possibility nonetheless!

    LOL Amurrricans will not make someone who isn't a str8 male a president anytime soon. Our best hope is that the next str8 male that gets elected isn't a right wing lunatic like Trumpette.
