GETTING ALONG IN A CRAZY WORLD


ACCEPTANCE OF GLBTQ  INDIVIDUALS
(GAY - LESBIAN - BISEXUAL - TRANSGENDER - QUEER
QUESTIONING - INTERSEXUAL - ASEXUAL - ALLIES - PANSEXUAL - KINK)


a)  School Gay-Straight Alliances
           -In the USA
          - How Canada Got Its First Catholic Elementary Alliances
Straight guy and his gay best friend
 make an amazing prom couple 
         
b) The Ultimate in Acceptance
         In May of 2015,  two male senior high students who were best friends went to their prom dance together. This has been happening occasionally with two gay young men, but they were both gay.  This is the first I have heard of it with one of them straight and the other gay. 

c) Ireland Is The First Country to Vote (May 23rd) on a Referendum on " Gay Marriage". Is this the same as "Same Sex Marriage?" Or is this just a distinction without difference?  Comments are welcome.



CANADIAN PUBIC SERVICE SCIENTISTS MUZZLED

     The 55,000 members of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada are demanding provisions that would allow scientists to — wait for it! — speak openly about their work, publish results without fear of censorship and travel abroad to collaborate with peers.

     A survey from Environics Research last year found that 91 per cent of government scientists feel they cannot share their expertise with the media without facing censure from their bosses

     The researchers’ union points out that under current plans, more than $2.6 billion and 7,500 positions will be eliminated by 2017 from the top 10 science-based departments and agencies. Meanwhile, some departmental science libraries have been shuttered, with their contents sometimes ending up in dumpsters
