SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Minutes after Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden bungled his closing statement in Wednesday’s debate by telling voters to go to a campaign website that did not exist, a college student was using the URL for a spoof election bid. Biden misspoke by directing viewers to “go to Joe30330” rather than “text JOE to 30330,” setting off a flurry of jokes on Twitter about the 76-year-old’s ineptitude with technology and a digital race to buy...

Italian police have launched an investigation into a picture showing a U.S. student suspected of killing an officer in a blindfold and handcuffs soon after the arrest. Two American teens were arrested on Saturday in Rome accused of the stabbing murder of Italian military police officer Mario Cerciello Rega.

South Korean students attending the Presbyterian University and Theological Seminary have won a court battle after the university suspended them for wearing rainbow clothes. The students were initially suspended last year, after they wore rainbow clothing to a university chapel on International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia. The students wore the clothes to show their support for the LGBTQ community. However, the university was worried it would be seen as endorsing homosexuality, so they suspended the students. In a court...

The University of Basilicata has joined several other academic institutes in Italy in allowing transgender students to self-identify on official documents. The University will also allow them to use their preferred pronouns and chosen name. The measure, known as carriera alias, means that trans students who have not yet gender transitioned will still be correctly identified, and it is hoped this will lead to a more positive academic experience for them. However, although trans students will be correctly identified on all...

On Israel’s Channel 12 TV, Peretz said: “I think that it is possible to convert . I can tell you that I have deep familiarity on the issue of education, and I have also done this.” He then later defended his comments, saying: “During my years as an educator, I met with students who felt terrible distress...

Image via Facebook @板中學生會Taiwanese students are going viral for making an LGBTQ-inclusive statement. The Asian country became the first in the continent to legalize gay marriage. And while several same-sex couples are jumping the broom, other LGBTQ advocates are jumping on the bandwagon of another issue. Gender identity and expression. Technically, the rise in conversations about gender identity and expression started at the top of the month. While most citizens waited to see...

A British filmmaker has coined a pithy new term for what some people have called “dude sex” and what others have deemed “bromosexuality.” Louis Theroux — the documentarian behind such films as My Scientology Movie and Mothers on the Edge and a cousin of Justin Theroux — discussed “situational homosexuality” in reference to his time at Westminster School in central London in a Radio 4 interview on Sunday, May 12.

At the time, a social media post went out among students which claimed the demonstrators make their appearances on college campuses around the country in an attempt to make money. The social...

Something’s rotten in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Racist and homophobic posters began circulating the halls of McCormick Junior High last week, and instead of doing anything about it, the school’s principal, Jeff Conine, decided to fire the teacher who brought the issue to his attention. The posters read: “It’s great to be straight. It’s not OK to be gay. Black lives matter only because if it weren’t for them who would pick our cotton. Join the KKK.” When substitute teacher and co-sponsor of the...
