On Tuesday 30 July, parents of LGBTQ youth were encouraged to reflect the bravery of their child and ‘come out’ to their friends, families and wider communities to help make it easier for other parents struggling to accept or understand their LGBTQ children. The day was especially important for those in conservative cultural or religious communities, where the feeling of shame can prevent parents from speaking openly about their LGBTQ children. Parents used the #OutAndProudParentsDay hashtag to share stories and pictures...

I’m someone who experienced homelessness as a queer youth, touched the foster care system, and eventually parenthood. The opportunity to do this work is a perfect melding of my own experiences and continuing to support my community. No matter what role you have at the Center, you are surrounded by people who are passionate about the LGBTQ+ community. My favorite part of working here is knowing that there are so many unique perspectives among people who bring lived expertise to...

Mario Lopez has apologised for his “ignorant and insensitive” comments about transgender children. Earlier this week, the television host and journalist – who gained international recognition for his role as A.C Slater on Saved by the Bell – criticised Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron’s decision to allow her child to live as a girl. “If you’re three years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way or you think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be,...

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren on Wednesday called desperate migrants who travel 2,000 miles with their children to seek asylum in the United States, “shi-ty” parents. “If you traipse your kid 2,000 miles in dangerous conditions you’re not only a criminal, you’re a sh–ty parent,” Lahren, who is also a Fox News contributor, tweeted on Tuesday evening. Lahren shared the remark half-an-hour into the first night of the second round of the 2020 presidential debates in Detroit. The remark was immediately denounced...

Slater in the ’90s-era teen series Saved by the Bell, criticized the parents of transgender children during his appearance on The Candace Owens Show, saying that allowing kids to assert their gender at a young age may be “dangerous” and have “repercussions” later on.

Actor and television personality Mario Lopez is facing backlash for claiming it’s “dangerous” for parents to support children who identify as transgender. Lopez, a father of three and co-host of the entertainment news program “Extra”, shared his opinions during a June interview on The Candace Owens Show, a PragerU video series hosted by the 30-year-old right-wing figure, but the clips have only recently attracted attention on social media. During the 40-minute interview, Owens noted that Lopez’s son has “boyish” interests, and...

Mario Lopez has received universal backlash for his recent transphobic comments. The television host and journalist – who gained international recognition for his role as A.C Slater on Saved by the Bell – criticised Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron’s decision to allow her child to live as a girl. “I thought she was a boy, too, until she looked at me when she was three years old and said, ‘I am not a boy’,” Charlize said earlier this year, explaining that she’s...

Her daughter, identified in court documents as...

In 2019, people still wonder how exactly someone is gay, and if this bishop from Cyprus is to be believed it’s down to the sex life of your parents, while your mother was pregnant.

The Cyprus Mail reports the bishop as saying: “It is a problem, which is usually transmitted by parents to the child. “To be more clear, anal...

A top Border Patrol official told lawmakers at a Thursday House Judiciary Committee that his agents are authorized to separate parents from their children if the parents are HIV positive because “it’s a communicable disease under guidance.” Border Patrol chief of law enforcement Brian Hastings said during an exchange with Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) that such separations are permitted under guidelines that cover communicable diseases. When Raskin asked if HIV status was enough to separate a parent from their...

Moments of unity are increasingly rare in Britain’s fractured parliament, but one MP’s personal loss brought all sides together, and in doing so, may help countless families in their darkest moments. Carolyn Harris’ ascent to the corridors of Westminster is a far cry from the script politicos are so accustomed to reading. She wasn’t a student politician, nor a cashed-up lobbyist before being parachuted into a seat - she was a working Mum, trying to make ends meet for her...
