Remarks by President Obama at the LGBT Pride Month Reception | Coffee Party Equality | Scoop.it

"Now, each June since I took office, we have gathered to pay tribute to the generations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans who devoted their lives to our most basic of ideals –- equality not just for some, but for all.  Together we’ve marked major milestones like the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, when a group of brave citizens held their ground against brutal discrimination.  Together, we’ve honored courageous pioneers who, decades ago, came out and spoke out; who challenged unjust laws and destructive prejudices.  Together, we’ve stood resolute; unwavering in our commitment to advance this movement and to build a more perfect union."

Panetta Salutes Gay Troops

Panetta Salutes Gay Troops | Coffee Party Equality | Scoop.it

by PAULINE JELINEK, The Huffington Post


Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Friday thanked gay and lesbian military members for their service, as the Pentagon prepares to mark June as gay pride month with an official salute.


In a remarkable sign of a cultural change in the U.S. military, Panetta said that with the repeal last year of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law that prohibited gays from serving openly in the military, gays and lesbians can now be proud to be in uniform.


"Now you can be proud of serving your country, and be proud of who you are," Panetta said.

Life, Death and Being Gay in Iran | GPhilly

Life, Death and Being Gay in Iran | GPhilly | Coffee Party Equality | Scoop.it

The town of Choram is about as remote as it gets. Photos from the rural community in the Kohgiluyeh Province of Iran show mostly a barren, rocky landscape with a few roads leading through the largely undeveloped region. One could scarcely imagine that much goes on there. But Pink News reports this week that four men’s lives are about to change after a harsh verdict came down in the local court. Each has been sentenced to death for accusations of sodomy. And while Choram and these men may seem like a world away – and in many cases they are – their stories reverberate though the LGBT community everywhere today.


Javid Akbari, Saadat Arefi, Vahid Akbari and Houshmand Akbari were all found guilty of the crime, according to the country’s strict Shari’a law. They are scheduled to be hanged as soon as the next few days – even though being gay is not technically a crime as far as Iran’s criminal law is concerned.
