Top court in India recognizes legal third gender 

gaywrites:

The highest court in India has issued a ruling that people may identify themselves as a third, nonbinary gender on legal documents. 

Individuals who choose the “transgender” marker will be included in all welfare programs, including education, healthcare and employment access, as the Supreme Court’s ruling specified.

The decision also specifies that state governments must create trans-friendly public bathrooms and health departments, and that trans people will be allowed to adopt children. India will also put public awareness campaigns into place to lessen the stigma against transgender people.

"The spirit of the (Indian) Constitution is to provide equal opportunity to every citizen to grow and attain their potential, irrespective of caste, religion or gender," the court said in its order.

The Supreme Court specified its ruling would only apply to transgender people but not to gays, lesbians or bisexuals. India’s LGBT communities have been protesting the court’s recent decision to reinstate a colonial-era law banning gay sex, which they say will make them vulnerable to police harassment.

Oh, man. Talk about a thorough decision.

Jenny Farrell (Katherine Heigl) has led an openly gay life - except with her conventional family. When she finally decides to start a family and marry the woman they thought was just her roommate, the small, safe world the Farrell’s inhabited changes forever. They are left with a simple and difficult choice - either change with it or drown. 

Last November, MM Productions completed principal photography on the film “Jenny’s Wedding” and they are currently in post production. 

Made independently, this film is the kind of movie the studios used to make all the time. It is about real people, the problems they face, and the personal courage it takes to resolve them. It is also about transformation and love.

Both moving and funny, it has an important message to send, and our goal is to ensure it reaches a wide audience.

Mississippi recently passed a law allowing businesses to deny LGBT people on religious grounds, but some business owners aren’t having it. Hundreds of businesses throughout the state are displaying these stickers in their windows to demonstrate their commitment to equality. It’s part of “If You’re Buying, We’re Selling,” a campaign by Equality Mississippi and 30 local businesses to combat harmful effects of the religious freedom bill. Yes, yes, yes. Mississippians, look for this when you shop. (via The Advocate)

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

Survey: More ads are featuring LGBT people, and it's working 

gaywrites:

A new survey conducted exclusively for BuzzFeed found that as more advertisers are featuring depictions of LGBT people in their ads, more Americans are getting on board.

Here are a couple of key points taken from the survey of 500 people:

  • 80% agreed that “showing gay or lesbian people in ads simply reflects the reality of our society today”
  • 60% agreed that “brands that show same-sex couples are being appropriately inclusive” 
  • 57% said “it’s cool when I see same-sex couples in ads”
  • 40% said “TV ads are no place for same-sex couples” 
  • 72% said they consider brands with LGBT-inclusive ads “brave”

The article linked above explains more about the survey data, while this longer BuzzFeed article dives deeper into how brands are using inclusive advertising to reach out to more audiences. As GLAAD’s Sarah Kate Ellis said, “It’s about time my children were able to turn on the television and see families like their own represented in mainstream advertising.”
