Dutee Chand First Openly Gay Athlete In India; Nevada Bans Gay and Trans Panic Defense; President Trump Supports Pete Buttigieg’s Gay Marriage

Dutee Chand First Openly Gay Athlete In India

Here’s some history being made on the global front, and it should be applauded. I hope we see more people coming out this way now.

Indian sprinter Dutee Chand has revealed she is in a same-sex relationship, the first sportsperson in India to openly acknowledge being gay.

You can read it all, here.  I like the way these stories are now making mainstream news. 



Nevada Bans Gay and Trans Panic Defense

I’ve posted about the panic defense law here before. For those who don’t know, in short, it’s a legal defense used in cases of assault and murder. I don’t like to ‘splain’ anything legal. I leave that up to the experts. 

A defendant using the defense claims they acted in a state of violent temporary insanity because of unwanted same-sex sexual advances.

In cases where trans people are involved it’s usually referred to as”Trans panic.” 

Nevada has become the fourth state to prohibit the use of so-called gay and trans panic defenses… 

Here’s the link. 

In Australia they call it “homosexual advance defense (HAD).” The wiki link above really explains it all in detail very well. 



President Trump Supports Pete Buttigieg’s Gay Marriage

Trump was recently asked how he feels about Pete Buttigieg’s gay marriage and here’s how he responded. 

He agreed with Hilton’s assessment that Buttigieg’s candidacy is a “sign of great progress,” adding, “Yeah, I think it’s great. I think that’s something that perhaps some people will have a problem with, I have no problem with it whatsoever.”

Here’s the link to more.
