Players end boycott as long as they aren’t ambushed with rainbows next year
refused to play when their club introduced pride-themed jerseys may appear next season wearing them – ‘as long as they are consulted first’.The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles unveiled their rainbow-patterned shirts on Monday, saying the team wanted to show support for ‘inclusivity and diversity’. Seven players sparked fury when they boycotted a key match against the Sydney Roosters, saying they wouldn’t wear the top due to ‘religious and cultural grounds’.They have reportedly been told to stay away from the grounds in New South Wales tonight for their own ‘safety and wellbeing’.But boss Scott Penn has since suggested a year of dialogue could produce different results.The players’ major concern was not necessarily the jersey itself, but the lack of discussion, in relation to their cutural and religious beliefs, before it was revealed in public, he claimed.‘I think they were somewhat frustrated that it went as far as it did without consultation, and we respect that’, he told 9News.‘We are all about inclusiveness, so we will continue this theme.’Mr Penn has stood by his decision to introduce the jersey, saying he wants to promote inclusivity for all.Yet, the board has announced a review into why all staff and players were not aware of the Pride-themed shirt before it was released publicly.The Sea Eagles plan to wear the rainbow next year – and the boycotters are said to have indicated that they will join in next time.‘Yes.
LGBTQ Agenda: 19 states plan laws to support trans kids
LGBTQ lawmakers from 19 states have or will introduce laws to protect trans kids from civil and criminal penalties when seeking gender-affirming care.At a virtual press conference May 3 with representatives from several states, gay California Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) announced a coalition of LGBTQ legislators, health providers, and civil rights groups from throughout the United States was working to introduce legislation in the various statehouses that would provide refuge and support for trans kids and their families. New Hampshire State Representative Gerri Cannon (D), a trans woman, called for lawmakers across the country to support trans kids no matter where they reside."We should be giving children a chance at a normal life in a society that does not support people who are different," she said during the virtual meeting.The momentum is building from Wiener's March 17 announcement of his planned legislation that would provide protection to trans kids and their families if they come to California from states "criminalizing the parents of trans kids for allowing them to receive gender-affirming care." Written a short time later, his proposal is now encapsulated in Senate Bill 107, as the Bay Area Reporter previously reported.Last month, Wiener shared the bill language via Twitter in hopes of seeing other state legislatures also adopt it.
