field is so large partly because Gov. Kate Brown is prevented from running again due to term limits. Brown, a Democrat, is the first out bisexual governor in the U.S.

Kotek, 55, has a long history of activism, and it’s tied closely to her identity. “My coming-out as a lesbian was also my coming-out as an advocate and somebody who wanted to try to change the world,” she says.She dates her coming-out to the late 1980s-early 1990s.

She grew up on the East Coast and moved to Oregon in 1987, finding the state to be a place where “I really could be completely me.” She finished her undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon, then went to graduate school at the University of Washington, where she fought for and won domestic-partner benefits for faculty and students.Returning to Oregon, she became policy advocate at the Oregon Food Bank in Portland, then worked as policy director for Children First for Oregon. “My goal has always been to make things better for people,” she says.She was elected to the state House in 2006, representing a Portland district.

Tinder charging gay users and over 30s more to use app and 'could be breaking law'
Tinder could be in breach of UK law and found to be discriminating against young gay, lesbian and over 30 users by charging them more, according to a watchdog.An investigation by Which? has uncovered that those interested in the dating app's premium service, Tinder Plus, are being charged differently to other users.Which? asked almost 200 mystery shoppers to create real profiles and make a note of prices quoted for Tinder Plus, which includes perks such as unlimited “Likes” and “Rewinds” and the ability to undo accidental selections.The research showed some gay and lesbian users were paying more, with an average premium of more than 10% compared to bisexual users, and more than 8% compared to heterosexual users.This trend was driven by the youngest age group, with Which? finding that gay and lesbian people aged 18 to 29 paid £60.15 on average, which is 37% more than heterosexual users aged under 30 and 30% more than bisexual users under 30.When it came to age, those in the 30 to 49-year-old age bracket paid 48% more and the over 50s paid 46% more on average for a 12-month Tinder Plus subscription.Across the entire mystery shopping exercise, quotes for a year’s access to Tinder Plus ranged from £26.09 to £116.99, with 20 different prices quoted in total.The watchdog said Tinder did not make clear the full extent of how it applied personalised pricing on the app, “with no explanation to customers that their personal data could be exploited in this way”.Tinder, which is is owned by the Texas-based Match Group, said it was “categorically untrue that our pricing structure discriminates in any way by sexual preference”.It told Which? that older people did have to pay more in some countries, but said the price difference was “a

Love Island ‘accepting applications from non-binary contestants’ in push for diverse 2022 cast
Love Island 2022 could wind up with the most diverse cast yet amid reports that non-binary applications are being accepted. The ITV2 dating series, which aired its most recent season last summer with Millie Court and Liam Reardon winning the £50,000 prize money, has long received criticism over its lack of LGBTQ+ representation. However, TV insiders claim bosses are hoping to make a change this year and are encouraging those who do not identify as either male or female to apply. A source told The Sun: ‘Producers are under more pressure than ever to make this series as woke as possible after it has previously come under criticism for its lack of diversity.‘The move could make the basic rules of the show complicated, as each coupling ceremony separates boys and girls, but they are keen to have a non-binary contestant this year. It’s all about inclusivity and breaking down boundaries.’ In response to the claims, a Love Island spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘The only stipulations are that applicants are over 18, single and looking for love.’ Last year, an ITV boss addressed the ongoing diversity issue and said that including gay islanders could present ‘logistical difficulties’. Speaking to RadioTimes.com in June, Amada Stavri said: ‘In terms of gay Islanders, I think the main challenge is regarding the format of Love Island. ‘There’s a sort of logistical difficulty, because although Islanders don’t have to be 100% straight, the format must sort of give [the] Islanders an equal choice when coupling up.‘With our dating shows, such as The Cabins, there is much more sexual diversity.

BYU Says It's Exempt From Title IX Rules As Probe Opened Into Discipline of LGBTQ Students
The Salt Lake Tribune concerns complaints of alleged Title IX violations over the school's continued enforcement of a ban against same-sex dating after specific mentions of LGBTQ relationships were removed from the school's honor code.Early in 2020, the college operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormon church, announced it was removing a section of the honor code that prohibited expressions of "homosexual behavior," the AP reported.However, weeks later the school sent a letter to students that said removing the section from the honor code didn't change the moral philosophy of the church or its opposition to same-sex marriage, and therefore things like holding hands and kissing members of the same sex were still banned on campus.Punishments for violating school policies like alcohol consumption or piercings, prohibited by the school's honor code or the outlined LGBTQ behavior could result in suspensions or expulsion, the AP reported.The reversal led to protests from hundreds of students who said the announcement and quick backtracking from the university felt like the school was trying to trick people into coming out, according to the AP.The investigation from the Education Department's Office of Civil Rights was opened in October, spokespersons from the department and BYU confirmed to The Tribune."BYU is exempt from application of Title IX rules that conflict with the religious tenets of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," BYU spokesperson Carri Jenkins said in a statement to The Tribune.Michael Austin, a BYU graduate and vice president of the University of Evansville told the newspaper that federal involvement in school discipline like the current
