(Reuters) - A U.S. judge will hear arguments on Aug. 29 in a lawsuit that President Donald Trump filed to block a U.S. House of Representatives committee from obtaining his New York state tax returns, according to a court filing.

Two members of the German heavy-metal band Rammstein defied Russia’s anti-LGBTQ policies by sharing a kiss during a concert in Moscow on Tuesday. Guitarists Paul Landers and Richard Kruspe kissed onstage as the band performed “Ausländer,” German for “foreigner.” “Russia, we love you,” the band wrote in an Instagram post accompanied by an image of the musicians’ kiss. The kiss was widely praised for its defiance of Russia’s so-called “gay propaganda” law, which prohibits “the promotion of non-traditional sexual relationships” to...

Two members of the German heavy metal band, guitarists Paul Landers and Richard Kruspe, shared a kiss on stage during a performance in Russia’s capital city Moscow to protest the country’s anti-LGBTQ attitudes and laws. While homosexuality isn’t illegal in Russia, President Vladimir Putin’s ‘gay propaganda’ law has created a hostile environment for LGBTQ people. A prominent LGBTQ activist was recently murdered after her name was listed on a vile ‘gay-hunting’ website. Elsewhere, in self-governed Russian state Chechnya, gay people have...

(Reuters) - Capital One Financial Corp said on Monday that personal information including names and addresses of about 100 million individuals in the United States and 6 million people in Canada were obtained by a hacker who has been arrested.

A Tennessee district attorney who argued last year that the reason he would not prosecute a domestic violence case between a gay couple as a regular assault is that “there’s no marriage to protect,” now says the criticism he has received from his controversial remarks are infringing upon his religious rights. Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott argued in court this week that his public statements doubting whether Muslims and LGBT individuals are entitled to legal protections, should not be...

Peace TV faces a ban from the UK after a presenter claimed that gay people were “worse than animals.” The complaint arose from a segment called The Valley of the Homosexuals. Ofcom has ruled that four of the station’s programmes have breached its rules on hate speech, offence, abusive treatment and incitement to crime. Powers given to Ofcom means that it could take the station off air for the breaches, if deemed severe enough, but it could also impose a lesser...

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed the so-called Save Chick-fil-A bill into law on Thursday while surrounded by Chick-fil-A food and beverages. “Today I signed the @ChickfilA law in Texas. And, had a great lunch,” Abbott wrote on Twitter. “No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners gave to a church or to the Salvation Army or to any other religious organization.” The legislation, known as Senate Bill 1978, prohibits government entities from taking “adverse actions” against businesses or individuals...

A U.S. District Judge approved a settlement Tuesday that clears the way for transgender people in North Carolina to use whichever bathroom, shower, locker room or other public facilities match their gender identity. If you thought, “Wait, wasn’t that already settled?” Nope, not until now. As Reuters reported, U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder ok’d the agreement between the American Civil Liberties Union, Lambda Legal and Gov. Roy Cooper (D). Schroeder is the same judge who ruled in 2016 that...
