Spain is the world’s most LGBT-friendly nation


According to the results of a new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, the world’s most LGBT-friendly nation is none other than Spain.
Surprised?
The rankings were part of a 40-country survey on what is or is not considered morally acceptable. Respondents were asked to discuss the morality of issues, including married people having an affair, gambling, homosexuality, having an abortion, having sex before marriage, drinking alcohol, getting a divorce and using contraceptives. 
Of Spaniards interviewed, 55% said homosexuality was morally acceptable, compared with 6% who said it was unacceptable and 38% who answered that it’s “not a moral issue.”

Don’t give parents all the credit that they get when they accept that their child isn’t straight and/or cis. That’s not heroic, no matter what their beliefs are. That’s basic human decency.

Well it’s decency a lot of people don’t show. It’s rarity alone make it worthy of recognition and affirmation.

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

High school couple banned from going to prom because one of them is transgender

gaywrites:

A teen couple from New York told media this week that they have been blocked from going to prom because one of them is trans. 

Anais Celini wants to bring her boyfriend Nathaniel Baez to her senior prom at the Martin Luther King High School in Queens. But because Nathaniel is trans, the school said they couldn’t go, calling his transition “unconventional” and “not beneficial.”

Baez added, “It’s hard because I really wanted her to be able to go to prom with her friends, and me as well, because it is one of the stepping stones in high school.”

School officials have thus far declined comment, according to Pix 11, but Baez has said that he will plan a private prom celebration for his girlfriend if authorities do not budge by May 22, when the dance will be held.

Are you KIDDING me right now. Whose business is it that this person is trans? What difference does it make? Since when do we require full-body exams to allow people to go to high school prom?! Ugh.
