LGBT and Trump

LGBT are reporting for duty as they face what many think could be their biggest threat since the AIDS crisis: A Trump-Pence presidency. 

Exit polls show that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender voters overwhelming sided with Hillary Clinton on Nov. 8, with 78 percent of the community voting for the Democratic candidate. As the shock of Donald Trump's election victory sinks in, though, many may wonder—just who are the 14 percent of LGBTQ voters who support the Trump-Pence administration.

Donald Trump’s stunning victory last week set off a frenzied panic within the gay world, sending its most prominent activists into full-on battle mode.

Northern Ireland plans to pardon Gay and Bisexual Men

Northern Ireland's Justice Minister has confirmed that a motion will go before lawmakers seeking approval to pardon gay and bisexual men convicted of abolished gay and bi sex offenses in the province.

The motion will now go before the Assembly for approval, and brings the country in line with England and Wales, who last month announced plans for automatic pardons to those convicted of such offences who have since died.

If it passes, the law – which has been dubbed Turing’s Law after gay Second World War codebreaker Alan Turing – will also allow living gay and bisexual men with historic convictions to apply for pardons.

Bella Thorne Comes Out as Bisexual to Fans

Bella Thorne Faces Backlash For Coming Out As Bisexual

The 18-year-old Amityville: The actress recently opened up about being bisexual shortly after her split from Gregg Sulkin. The rumors circulated after she shared Snapchat photos of herself kissing her best friend Bella Pendergast on the lips. That’s when a fan asked Thorne if she was bisexual people.

“Yes,” she replied to the question.

Bella immediately received an outpouring of love and support from her fans for being so honest and real on social media.

Bella Thorne's fans were all routing for her when the 19-year-old star came out as bisexual people earlier this year, but it turns out that sadly Hollywood hasn't been so accepting.

In an interview with Maxim Magazine, the former Disney darling revealed that although her nearest and dearest have been totally down with her sexual orientation, bigoted industry insiders have been nervous about her "image."

"It is hard in this business for us. It really is. I have already had people talk s--t to me. And it comes from people in the industry, not even fans. I've had studios tell me my image is too 'out there,' hinting at bisexuality but not really saying it."

After coming out, Thorne get a bisexual dating, and appeared to be in a relationship with her brother's former girlfriend, Bella Pendergast, but the young star has since fallen head over heels with Teen Wolf star, Tyler Posey. Via

Alicia Keys Did NOT Come Out As Bisexual

Despite a new report, Alicia Keys did not “come out” as bisexual in a new song, but now we’re told it’s incorrect. 

According to MediaTakeOut, “For YEARS there have been rumors that Alicia Keys was bisexual people.” The often discredited site continues, “She is currently in a monogamous relationship with husband Swizz Beats, but before they got married, people were speculating that Alicia was gay.” After those unsubstantiated claims, the webloid alleges, “In her new song, Where Do We Begin Now, Alicia just RE-SPARKED all the rumors,” adding, “She appears to be coming out as bisexual in the song.”

Other than that, the webloid has no proof or sources that Keys “came out” as bisexual people. Instead, it just republished the song’s lyrics, which include, “What they gon do ’cause we the same sex? And we spendin’ all this time.” The unreliable outlet further illustrates its story by posting a photo of the singer with openly lesbian rapper Young M.A. It should noted, however, that there is not one single reference to Young M.A. in the site’s entire article. It’s just an innocuous picture being twisted by MTO to support its theory.

Rather than speculating or publishing rumors, Gossip Cop looked into MediaFakeOut’s claim, and we’re told it’s untrue that she came out as bisexual in the song’s lyrics. A source close to Keys exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “It’s not autobiographical,” and explains that the singer is simply “referencing friends of hers who have shared their stories with her.”

Double Olympic champion Nicola Adams come out as bisexual

Bisexual boxer Nicola Adams has opened up about her experiences coming out and facing up to prejudice in boxing.

Nicola Adams recalls lying awake at night worrying before she eventually told her mother she was bisexual people: “It took a lot of courage … I knew one other person in my school who was the same and we talked. We hadn’t come out and we were thinking, ‘What is the best approach? How to tell my mother?’

“You never know how the family is going to react, so I was nervous”, the boxer told GQ in a wide-ranging interview published today.

“Mum was in the kitchen washing up and I was like, ‘I’ve got something to tell you.’ … I was really sweating, and she says, ‘What’s wrong?’ And I was just like, ‘I’m a bisexual woman.’ And she was like, ‘OK, put the kettle on.’ She said she kind of already knew.”

Adams later wished she had said something sooner: I was expecting some big reaction and I’m thinking, ‘Why have I been stressing about this for months?’

Asked whether it was difficult being photographed in public with her partner, who is also a boxer, for the first time, the fighter said she was fortunate never to have had a bad reaction to her sexuality: “Racism, yes. Sexism, yes, in boxing – people saying women shouldn’t box. I’ve never come across homophobia.”

Adams hopes to use her celebrity to inspire others: “I would like to do more for the LGBT community, try to help them to meet other bisexual friends, and have a bisexual dating. I can’t do as much as I would like because of the training.”

It’s a goal she has nevertheless made progress on, winning the ‘Paving The Way’ award at last week’s Mobos. Adams has now set her sights on the Tokyo 2020 games, where she hopes to make history by becoming Britain’s first three-time Olympic boxing champ.

State Lawmaker Comes Out as Bisexual

A North Carolina House member says he's making public his bisexuality so people know members of the LGBT community remain in the General Assembly and will keep speaking up against discrimination.

Democratic Rep. Cecil Brockman of Guilford County told the News & Record of Greensboro of his decision to come out as bisexual. Brockman is a first-term legislator who faces no opposition next week for a second two-year term.

Brockman told The News & Record that he was motivated to come out following an altercation in a restaurant with a homophobic drunk.

The incident occurred while he ate dinner with state Rep. Chris Sgro, the state's only openly gay legislator, and his partner. Sgro is not seeking re-election.

The "ugly incident" that he experienced at dinner influenced Brockman to come out publicly as a bisexual people

“I don’t necessarily live that life,” Brockman told The News & Record, a newspaper in Greensboro, North Carolina. “I don’t wear it on my sleeve. I can live in the straight world and not be identified.”

“I really want young people to know that you can be a member of the LGBT community, and it’s OK,” said Brockman. “You can run for public office and serve honorably. You don’t have to let anyone put you in a box.”

Brockman also said that he was deeply affected when House Bill 2 passed in North Carolina.

 HB 2 struck down LGBT-inclusive antidiscrimination ordinances in cities and counties statewide, and prohibits cities from adopting any new ones. It also expressly requires transgender people to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that do not match their gender identity, when these are in government buildings.

“Discriminating against folks in the LGBT community has become legal,” said Brockman about HB 2. “You should be able to be who you are and love who you are and not be afraid to go out and feel like someone will harass you.”

However, he also wants to be an advocate for bisexual people in the state, and also go out to have bisexual dating with others.

“I want people to recognize that members of the LGBT community are your sons and your daughters, your aunts and uncles. You can’t turn away from those bisexual women and bisexual women of the community. It’s important for me as a black person to stand up for the black bisexual community, as well as stand up for the LGBT community. I’m a part of both communities, and I want to push my bisexual community to be more tolerant and accepting.”
