Another Desperate Cry for Attention From Governor Bobby Jindal

Yesterday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s efforts to pass one of his top priorities, anti-LGBT HB 707, were dealt a major setback. By a bipartisan vote of 10-2 to “return to calendar without amendments,” the bill was potentially killed for the session.

Call to Reinstate “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” if Elected President Dangerous, Costly

The Human Rights Campaign, America’s largest civil rights organisation dedicated to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality, today rebuked comments made by presidential aspirant Tim Pawlenty that he would reinstate “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” if elected president. Based upon an interview conducted with Pawlenty by the American Family Association, an organisation designated as a “hate group,” it’s unclear whether the former Minnesota governor understands the potentially dangerous ramifications of his comments.

Praises White House For Stance Against Conversion Therapy

The Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund (TLDEF) commends the White House for speaking out against so-called conversion therapy for LGBT minors. Conversion therapy is a widely discredited practice that attempts to change an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity. Late yesterday the Obama Administration made its opinion known in response to a White House “We the People” petition calling for a ban on the practice. The petition, signed by more than 120,000 people, came in response to the tragic loss of a transgender teen from Ohio named Leelah Alcorn who died by suicide in late December. The petition says that prior to her death Leelah’s parents “forced her to attend conversion therapy, pulled her out of school and isolated her in an attempt to change her gender identity.”
