Queen's Freddie Mercury never wanted to have an in-depth discussion about his sexuality with the public. However, it was well known that this icon of rock had had relationships with both men and women. At one point he claimed to be bisexual, but he may have been a gay man who got involved with members of the opposite sex because he was trying to survive — and build a career — in a very homophobic world.
SYDNEY, Australia — Australian rugby officials said on Thursday that they intended to terminate the contract of a star player, Israel Folau, after he posted anti-gay comments on social media. Folau signed a four-year, multimillion-dollar contract in February with the Wallabies and the Waratahs, both of which he joined in after six years playing rugby league and Australian rules football. He has also been awarded the John Eales Medal for best Australian rugby player three times, more than anyone else. His departure would leave the Wallabies without one of their top players less than six months before the Rugby World Cup, which starts in September in Japan.
Many of these great gay and LGBT movies normalize love between two people of the same gender, depict the long and often challenging fight for equal rights or gender expression, or showcase that gay and LGBTQ people can live openly and happily ever after.

But as the year-old Iowan waited for Pete Buttigieg to arrive at a Des Moines rally Tuesday night, he wondered if moments like this could help: an openly gay man emerging as a top-tier candidate for president, speaking to a crowd of more than 1, people. Buttigieg has tapped into a powerful network of LGBT donors, a wealthy, engaged, and motivated group that has for years been a driving force behind Democratic presidential candidates but that has never had a gay major-party candidate to rally behind in a presidential election. They include Barry Karas, who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, plus celebrities like Jane Lynch, who gave a maximum donation to Buttigieg.
Social media was flooded with photos of the devastating fire that tore through Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on April But on some West African sites, many people were discussing a different set of images: that of statues allegedly on display in the cathedral that were perceived as shocking, devilish and sometimes immoral.

We have no reliable figures on just how many priests in the Catholic Church are gay. The Vatican has conducted many studies on its own clergy but never on this subject. The consensus in my own research over the past few months converged on around 30 to 40 percent among parish priests and considerably more than that — as many as 60 percent or higher — among religious orders like the Franciscans or the Jesuits.
Evangelicals across the country are mourning the death of Billy Graham, an influential preacher who died in his home in Montreat, North Carolina, on Wednesday. But while some are celebrating his legacy, others are grappling with the lasting damage his actions have done to their communities.

For many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, however, Graham was a crusader against them, one whose efforts shaped the religious right into an anti-LGBTQ political force.
