Meanwhile, workplace bullying continues to be an issue, with almost one in five (18%) of LGBTQ people at...

But now Mr Johnson’s own deeply homophobic...

“We have every right to be here," said one mother, "I’m here to find a boyfriend for my son." At the Shanghai’s famous “marriage market,” parents of young singles exchange fliers with their offsprings’ details, in hope of landing them a mate.

Because love will always trump hate. It’s been a rough couple of days, the week is dragging on and, across the pond, insecurity about LGBT equality grows in the wake of Donald Trump’s election. But, to borrow a phrase from Lady Gaga’s recent anti-Trump protests, “love trumps hate.” And one couple have shared the adorable moment they got engaged to prove just that. On January 9, Darell got down on one knee and popped the question to boyfriend Rechard. He tells Attitude: “We...
