Congresswoman Baldwin & Gay Healthcare

Tuesday Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin introduced the Ending
Health Disparities for LGBT Americans Act (ELHDA), the first
comprehensive approach to improving all areas of the healthcare
system where lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender (LGBT)
Americans face inequality & discrimination.

“Our current healthcare system fails LGBT Americans on many
levels,”said Congresswoman Baldwin. “Although we have ample
anecdotal evidence of these disparities, the federal government
lacks even the most basic data on sexual orientation & gender
identity & health. This bill invests in research & takes critical steps
towards improving the health of LGBT Americans & their families,”
Baldwin said.

In addition to investing in data collection & research, the bill
establishes non-discrimination policies for all federal health
programs, provides funding for cultural competence training for
healthcare providers, extends Medicare benefits to same-gender
domestic partners, creates a new office of LGBT Health within in
the Department of Health & Human Services, provides funding for
community health centers who serve the LGBT community.
Updates to Come....:)

"Chica Busca Chica" Spain's "L Word"

"Chica Busca Chica" isn't a movie but four television episodes
strung together. The title means "woman seeking woman", as
these chic chicas in Madrid look for love, usually in the wrong
places. The women are quite pretty, but the show itself is hardly
the Spanish equivalent to The L Word beyond a show with a
several lesbians, a possible bisexual, & a self-declared newbie who
happily & naively decides it's time to experience sapphic love.
There are a few chuckles, but I suspect that the show which can be
seen online with or without English subtitles, works better seen
in weekly segment. Writer-director Sonia Sebastian has also
made a couple of short films.

Executive Director of the P-Town International Film Festival.

Supreme Court Bans Gays in Military, Again

A major setback for our LGBT community serving in the Military.
Monday the Supreme Court agreed with the Obama administration
& upheld Pentagon policy barring gays & lesbians from serving
openly in the military. The court said it will not hear an appeal
from former Army Capt. James Pietrangelo II, who was dismissed
under the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. The federal appeals court
in Boston earlier threw out a lawsuit filed by Pietrangelo & 11 other
veterans. He was the only member of that group who asked the high
court to rule that the Clinton-era policy is unconstitutional.
