The International Olympic Committee said for the time being it is standing by reassurances that athletes and visitors attending the 2014 Sochi Games in Russia will not be affected by anti-gay legislation.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) changed its social media moderation policy in response to advocates who pointed out concerning language contained in the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual" section that sanctioned the use of the phrase "that's so gay."
Transgender high school student Ashton Lee of Manteca, California, delivered nearly 6,000 petition signatrues to Gov. Jerry Brown's Sacramento office, in support of a pending bill which would provide protection for transgender students in the state.
You can totally be gay at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, according to Russia’s Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko. You just better not do anything that can be construed as “propaganda” in the presence of minors or you shall be “brought to responsibility.” Which doesn’t sound ominous…at all.
Federal civil rights officials reached an important settlement late last month with a California school district accused of discriminating against a transgender student by denying him equal access to educational programs and activities.
