In an incredible, first-ever move, South Africa banned anti-LGBTIQ "pastor" Steven Anderson and his associates, labeling him as advocating "racial hatred or social violence"

This sets a valuable precedent, ensuring that hate speech is not free speech and governments are willing to challenge bigots.

Lady Chablis & Alexis Arquette
The world lost 2 of its most incredible trans icons: Lady Chablis, who served to advance awareness in Savannah and Columbia and actor & activist Alexis Arquette - both icons were exploited, but nonetheless advanced the understanding of transgender people in the US and beyond.
Dallas Pride
This weekend enjoy Pride in Dallas, New Haven, or look ahead to Folsom Street Fair in SF.  Or look ahead to Black & Blue in Montreal, OutFest in Philly or Atlanta Pride all the weekend of Oct 8-9 - or even ROMBA back in Dallas?
ILGA-Europe
Now is the time to plan and organize your fall, holiday & winter travel! Flights to Europe and home for the holidays will only increase - I'm headed to Paris en route to Cyprus for this year's ILGA Europe conference. Anyone else also doing Puerto Vallarta for New Years? - I just booked it!

This Russian politician is going up against all odds - he's gay making an attempt to serve in the State Duma!

China continues to silence critics of the government which fails to protect or support LGBTIQ citizens.

Australia's pro-marriage equality Prime Minister called for a national ballot-initiative on marriage equality that would cost $138 million - but it's unclear if Parliament would agree to hold the plebiscite, that would actually not cause any binding legal change to law; plus Australians already favor equality.


In a blow that continues to show that even in sports, LGBTIQ discrimination is not tolerated, the ACC Championships canceled all plans for games in North Carolina, following the NBA and NCAA.
