Ghana Bill Criminalizes LGBTQ People

Ghana’s parliament has passed "Human Sexual Rights & Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2021” which will have severe & detrimental effects on the lives & freedoms of our LGBTQ community in Ghana. The bill violates the African Commission on Human & Peoples’ Rights Resolution 275 that aims to protect individuals from violence & discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity & to ensure their equal protection under the law. Neela Ghoshal, Senior Director of Law, Policy & Research at Outright International stated, "Ghana’s anti-LGBTQ bill tramples human rights, undermines family values of acceptance & unity & risks derailing economic development & eroding democratic gains. Banning the very existence of queer people & their allies is unprecedented. The hostility this bill displays toward LGBTQ Ghanaians will put lives & livelihoods at risk”. David Stacy, HRC Vice President of Government Affairs concluded, “We are outraged to hear about the Ghanaian Parliament’s passage of the so-called ‘Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights &Ghanaian Family Values Act’ – a cruel bill that violates the fundamental rights of LGBTQI+ people & allies throughout Ghana. Every single lawmaker who voted to pass this bill is wrongly using their power to strip away the basic humanity of the people they are supposed to represent. We stand with our partners in Ghana during this harrowing time & we urge the Government of Ghana to reverse course on this bill that undermines human rights. We call on the international community to stand up for the rights of all LGBTQI+ people.” Just another wake-up call how crucial our upcoming presidential election is in this country to uphold the rights & dignity of all individuals regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Melodies For A Movement Event (AUDIO)

This week I talked with singer/songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway about her performance with the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus (BGMC) on March 16th at Jordan Hall in Boston, MA. The concert entitled "Melodies for a Movement" highlights the "Tyler’s Suite" that sheds light on the devastating impact of cyber-harassment & bullying that our LGBTQ youth continue to face. Tyler Clementi was the accomplished violinist who took his life in 2010 after being cyber-bullied by his Rutgers roommate for being gay. The "Tyler’s Suite" was created under the leadership of Composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) & explores the voices & experiences of Tyler & his family through the music of 11 of today’s top composers including Ann Hampton Callaway. This powerful performance will feature a suite in 9 movements for chorus with a solo violin performance dedicated to the memory of Tyler Clementi. "Melodies for a Movement" also features a cabaret set by Callaway one of America's most gifted & prolific artists. Through the stirring composition of the "Tyler’s Suite" & the mesmerizing performance by Callaway this fabulous concert event will evoke empathy, foster understanding & promote acceptance. Especially in these difficult times with over 600 anti LGBTQ bills in states across the country, women's rights continue to be on the chopping block, antisemitism & hate crimes on the rise all as we head toward the 2024 presidential election. "Melodies for a Movement" honors Tyler Clementi's memory while igniting the flame of positive change to build a world where every individual is cherished for exactly who they are. I talked to Ann about what she hopes to accomplish with her music & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN  

LGBTQ Task Force Winter Party Honors

The National LGBTQ Task Force will honor SAVE Executive Director Todd Delmay & Equality Florida Board Co-Chair Jeff Delmay at the 2024 Winter Party Festival’s VIP Cocktail Reception in Miami Beach on March 1st. The Delmays have been at the forefront of the Florida LGBTQ civil rights movement & represent the union of two of Florida’s most influential activist organizations. Kierra Johnson, National LGBTQ Task Force Executive Director stated, "The Delmays are pioneers in the local and national LGBTQ+ community for their work fighting for marriage equality. This election year, our hard won rights & frankly those yet realized are at stake. As we work to Queer the Vote, we couldn’t imagine two better people to recognize. They truly are unrelenting advocates & pillars of our Miami community who continue, despite all odds, to pursue an equitable world for queer people in Florida and nationwide.” Todd Delmay concluded, “We are humbled to be honored not just as a couple, but as representatives of two of Florida's most successful organizations in the fight for full LGBTQ+ equality & we're excited the honor will be part of the celebration of love for the community that Winter Party represents. More than ever, our fight depends on our efforts to stand strong together in the face of hate.” The Winter Party Festival is an annual dance & music festival featuring a week-long series of events benefiting both local and national LGBTQ+ organizations. The VIP Cocktail Reception is a ticketed event & serves as the Task Force’s kick-off party to a week-long series of events inspiring the community to “Queer the Vote'' this crucial election year. 

Justice For Transgender Murder Victim

The first trial under the Matthew Shepard & James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act for violence against a transgender person has resulted in a guilty verdict. Daqua Lameek Ritter was found guilty of a Hate Crime for murdering Dime Doe a transgender woman in South Carolina because of her gender identity. After a four-day trial in a federal hate crime case a jury found the South Carolina man guilty of all charges in the indictment which included one hate crime count, one federal firearms count & one obstruction count. Benjamin C. Mizer Acting Associate Attorney General stated, “Acts of violence against LGBTQI+ people, including transgender women of color like Dime Doe, are on the rise & have no place in our society. The Justice Department takes seriously all bias-motivated acts of violence & will not hesitate to hold accountable those who commit them. No one should have to live in fear of deadly violence because of who they are.” Kristen Clarke Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division concluded, “A unanimous jury has found the defendant guilty for the heinous & tragic murder of Dime Doe, a Black transgender woman. The jury’s verdict sends a clear message: Black trans lives matter, bias-motivated violence will not be tolerated & perpetrators of hate crimes will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We want the Black trans community to know that you are seen & heard, that we stand with the LGBTQI+ community & that we will use every tool available to seek justice for victims & their families.” 

Transgender Ban Heads To Florida House

Florida’s Trans Erasure Bill (HB 1639) imposes sweeping mandates on private insurance companies & bans transgender Floridians from accessing accurate driver's licenses & IDs has passed its final committee in the Florida House. Despite bipartisan opposition from lawmakers & thousands of Floridians having spoken out against the harms this sweeping legislation would cause the bill was voted out of committee favorably by a 9 - 15 vote. The bill is now headed to the Florida House floor. Equality Florida stated, “Transgender people exist & always will. This cruel bill weaponizes private insurance companies & state agencies to threaten the safety & inclusion of the transgender community & it exists for the purpose of bullying transgender Floridians out of public life entirely. HB 1639 includes sweeping new anti-LGBTQ government mandates on private insurance carriers in the state that are sure to increase health insurance costs for every Floridian at a time when we are already facing an affordability crisis. The proposal further requires that all healthcare plans offered in the state include coverage for anti-trans “conversion therapy,” a dangerous & debunked practice opposed by the American Medical Association & banned in twenty-two states. The bill also blocks transgender Floridians from obtaining accurate state-issued identification, which denies their legal existence & takes Florida out of compliance with the federal REAL ID Act. Forcing transgender Floridians to out themselves at an airport, in interactions with law enforcement, or when accessing a club or movie theater is a threat to their safety. Lawmakers should end the continued obsession with culture war attacks in service to an agenda of censorship & government control & overreach & instead, focus on solving problems rather than creating new ones that future legislatures will eventually have to clean up.” 

GLSEN Addresses Nex Benedict Death

Horrendous news out of Oklahoma where a 16-year-old nonbinary Owasso High student died after being assaulted in a school bathroom. The school sent them home bloodied & bruised without notifying police or seeking urgent medical attention which led to their death the following day. GLSEN has found that 75% of trans students feel unsafe at school & we're already dealing with over 300 anti-LGBTQ bills mostly against trans kids filed across the USA in 2024. Melanie Willingham-Jaggers GLSEN Executive Director stated, “The murder of Nex Benedict is devastating. The fact that the mob killing of this child was carried out by other children is a chilling reminder of the influence adults hold over young minds. When adults propagate extremist ideologies & fuel the spread of hate, it's sadly not surprising that hate crimes ensue. We must name the role that individuals and legislation have played in this murder. Nex's life was taken due to anti-trans hatred peddled by Chaya Raichik (Libs of TikTok), bigoted school leaders & extremist state legislators. These adults must be held accountable for their actions & words. Hate speech, especially when enshrined into law as demonstrated by Oklahoma's transphobic bathroom ban, not only empowers children to commit atrocious acts of violence but also desensitizes the adults in their environment, fostering a culture of callousness & disregard for human life. The tragic reality is that the youth who inflicted fatal injuries upon Nex were indoctrinated with hatred, fed lies & instilled with a profound fear of trans individuals. This indoctrination was so potent that they felt justified in carrying out a deadly assault on their peer in a school bathroom.”

Creating Change Voguing Event (AUDIO)

I had the pleasure to talk with dancer/actor Jason A. Rodriguez at the 2024 National LGBTQ Task Force Creating Change Conference that took place in New Orleans, LA. Creating Change is the foremost political, leadership & skills-building conference for our LGBTQ social justice movement. There are also fun events especially when Jason A. Rodriguez the talented dancer/actor from the hit FX series “Pose” presented a workshop on the history, importance & elements of Vogue. This year’s conference theme was “Queer Power, Action & Joy” & Jason brought the joy conducting workshops on New Way Vogue. Jason who played Lamar on “Pose” also served as the movement coach for all three seasons. Currently Rodriguez conducts New Way Vogue classes at the Ailey Studios in NYC. The workshops Jason led at the Creating Change Conference gave the attendees an opportunity to learn the 3 styles of Voguing. Stretch & precision are key to New Way Vogue allowing the voguers to show off contorted & flexible poses with precision & grace. It’s all accomplished by learning arm controls to show off your control of creating lines, shapes, illusions & face framing movements to the beat of the music in addition to poses, floor work, cat walks, duck walks & dips. Jason also served as one of the judges at the Conference’s “Agents of Change –A Night of a Thousand Stars Mini-Ball” which showcased professional & novice Voguers on the runway. I talked to Jason about his inspiration to carry on the Voguing tradition & his spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN

Criminalizing Healthcare Across America

We're barely into the New Year & a new slate of hatred has already been introduced in states across the USA with a terrifying 300 Anti-LGBTQ Bills introduced in 2024. Multiple states have passed bans on abortion & transgender health care & Texas continues to intimidate or otherwise punish physicians or facilities in other states who provide such essential care to their residents. However eleven states including Massachusetts, Connecticut & the District of Columbia have passed health care shield laws to protect providers & patients & ensure their states remain desirable places to practice medicine. In Rhode Island last week legislators introduced the “Health Care Provider Shield Act,” (SB2262/HB7577) to protect Rhode Island’s health care system, doctors & other medical care providers & patients from hostile out-of-state laws that could negatively impact delivery of care in the Ocean State. Sponsored by Senator Dawn Euer & Representative John G. Edward the Health Care Provider Shield Act will ensure that Rhode Island health care providers aren’t penalized under the laws of other states that have banned access to established, standard-of-care reproductive & transgender health care & that patients can continue to receive quality, legal, essential medical care in Rhode Island. Senate Judiciary Chair Euer stated, “The Health Care Provider Shield Act is about protecting established, best-practice medical care that is legal in Rhode Island & ensuring that our local providers & our health care infrastructure aren’t negatively impacted by hostile laws in other states. Politicians in multiple U.S. states are engaging in alarming government overreach, banning access to essential medical care & instituting civil & criminal penalties on providers for practicing medicine in line with the professional standards of care. This bill will ensure that these out-of-state laws aren’t used against health care providers in Rhode Island.”

She’s directed the implementation of a patient-centered, team-based care model at Fenway Health. She has also led efforts that have improved access to care for our patients & clients & is executing strategies to improve the financial performance of the organization.” Shanks concluded, “I’m inspired every day by the incredible skill & passion that Fenway clinicians & staff in our health centers & public health clinics bring to their work when caring for our patients & clients.
