The order, which was announced last Friday, will be in effect for two weeks. The threats show a string of texts accusing the mayor of 'not responding to whites.' The sender also appeared to be upset about the mask requirement, asking 'What are the repercussions for not wearing a mask in public starting Tuesday?' Before Lucas could reply, the sender proceeded to call him the n-word, and implied that the mayor should be lynched.

Dubbed the ‘equality law’, the bill would set a milestone in South Korea by providing legal protection for all citizens, including LGBTQ people. It was proposed by South Korea’s progressive Justice Party, but requires the backing of president Moon Jae-in’s ruling Democratic Party to pass. But president Moon, a former human rights attorney, has remained notably silent on the issue. Addressing the president, the National Human Rights Commission of Korea urged him to take a stand.

But LGBTQ activists – armed with rainbow flags, feather boas, and balloons – put together an “ambush” Pride parade for the town this past Saturday.

(Watch Live) Footage shows how clean the air is after three months of coronavirus lock down in Bangkok, Thailand.  The tropical skyline was clouded in a toxic smog made of harmful particles at the start of the year, caused by construction, cars and agricultural fires. However, with many projects on hold and builders sent back home to neighboring countries, pollution has dropped. A blanket ban on tourists since the end of March - which is still active - has also significantly reduced the number of cars, taxis, minivans and coaches on the road.

(Watch Live)  Facebook has responded to the activists’ complaint about one particular post from a user named Abdullah, which translated to: 'If you think it’s your right to act on sodomy, then it’s my right to throw you off the roof.' Facebook reportedly responded to the queer MENA activists by replying that the post “doesn’t go against our community standards, including hate speech.' 22 LGBTQ+ activists and groups have written an open letter to Facebook, urging them to take more action against such violent rhetoric in the Middle East and North Africa as it does in western countries.

(Watch Live) When the transgender activist Marsha P. Johnson was alive, there were no murals created in her honor. There were no institutes in her name; and there were certainly no monuments recognizing her activism. In fact, according to historians, Johnson - now recognized as one of the most influential forces of the modern LGBTQ rights movement - was told to march in the back of New York City's first gay pride march in 1970. Now, more than 75,000 people have signed on to a petition to have a statue of Johnson erected in her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, in place of its existing Christopher Columbus monument. We can only hope that this comes to fruition.
