Trump reissues so called “religious freedom” executive order

Washington, D.C. - An executive order signed by Donald Trump on May 4 will make it easier for churches to get involved in politics and for employers to deny reproductive health coverage to their employees, but it does not include language explicitly endorsing discrimination against LGBT Americans. Trump's so-called “Executive Order on Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty” was issued on May 4, designated as the National Day of Prayer, as a nod to Christian conservatives who promoted his candidacy.

A couple of years ago, the author and director of the Academy Award-nominated How to Survive a Plague, David France, contacted me for his next project. We chatted a few times and then he arrived at my door with a complete film crew and research staff. He was going to spend the day filming me talking about my sister from Gay Liberation Front in New York, Marsha P. Johnson. Last week, France was kind enough to ask me to the Tribeca Film Festival for a showing of that film, now titled The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson.

Among the things that separates LGBTQ folks from our straight brothers and sisters is our love of literature. Many of us have been avid readers since we were young, when we sought and found comfort from the problems of the outside world in the pages of books. The following are new books by LGBTQ writers out just in time for Pride month and summer reading.

Master of the media tells secrets of success!

Daniel Radcliffe once said, “Any actor worth their salt wants to show as much versatility as they can.” Actor and model Nic Detorie embodies this sentiment. Detorie’s work runs the gamut from commercials, print, live events, TV, and film. He recently sat down with me to talk about his life in entertainment.

John Wayne once said that “Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.” The Western lifestyle that Wayne so cavalierly brought to the big screen has inspired all men and women throughout the years through his swagger and grit. Fans of that lifestyle will be able to enjoy a piece of that Western culture at the Keystone State Gay Rodeo later this June. Running from Saturday, June 24th to Sunday, June 25th the rodeo will be held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Baltimore OUTloud recently sat down Keystone State Gay Rodeo Association’s (KSGRA) Jim Gallucci who is the rodeo director for the event.

On Friday, May 5th, Asbury Park came together as a community, as they have for the past five years for the 5th annual “Pink Prom” to raise funds to another amazing cause. The event took place in one of my favorite venues in Asbury Park, Hotel Tides. This is the fifth year of this spectacular event that has amassed thousands of dollars to help local LGBTQ organizations, and it has turned into one of New Jersey’s most successful fundraisers. In the last five years the Pink Prom has benefited Pride Network, Pride Center of New Jersey, Project Real, Gender Spectrum Support Network, Glsen, and this year, Garden State Equality, an organization that has done so much for the LGBTQ community, and now will continue to do so.
