Madelynn Taylor, a 74-year-old U.S. Navy veteran, recently asked the Idaho Veterans Cemetery if she could reserve a place for interment along with the ashes of her partner Jean, who died in 2012. The cemetery allows spouses of veterans to be buried or interred with them.

She was horrified, though not surprised, when they said no.

"I’m not surprised." Taylor said. "I’ve been discriminated against for 70 years, and they might as well discriminate against me in death as well as life."

A spokesperson with the Division of Veterans Services told KBOI 2News that they “have to abide by the Idaho state constitution,” which only recognizes marriage between a man and a woman.

"I don’t see where the ashes of a couple old lesbians is going to hurt anyone," Taylor said.

"I’ve been discriminated against for 70 years, and they might as well discriminate against me in death as well as life."

Let that sink in for a second — that LGBT people actually have this mindset drilled into our brains because it’s been reinforced for decades. Speak your truth, Madelynn. We’re with you. 

wow what fucking scumbags

A spokesperson with the Division of Veterans Services told KBOI 2News that they “have to abide by the Idaho state constitution,” which only recognizes marriage between a man and a woman.

how about you be BRAVE like the veterans you serve and fight this blatant inequality shit?

I was going to get Uline boxes for my next move, but like hell I’m buying from them now that I know this.

In a startling revelation, the daughter of Ugandan President Yoweri ­Museveni admitted today during a radio talk show in Mbarara, in Western Uganda that she is homosexual, and that she is revealing this fact as a protest to the anti-gay law her father signed only a few days ago.

Diana Kamuntu, Museveni’s daughter said that though she loves her father unconditionally, she does not agree with Uganda’s anti-gay stance, and will fight against it.

“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be,” said Kamuntu.

“Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me,” Kamuntu adds, as her voice breaks down while on air.

The radio host, James Kasirivu noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.

The live radio broadcast was abruptly shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.

In the latest setback for homosexuals across Africa, the Ugandan President signed a law Monday that imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts, a move that has been condemned from around the world and that may jeopardize Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations.

As of this writing, neither the radio station nor the office of Ugandan President Yoweri ­Museveni could be reached for comment.

What a brave lady. I wish her the very best and I am. Rey interested to see how this plays out.

Hey, Abril Uno is actually a satire site, a la the Onion. This is unfortunately fake.

Holy shit, that is incredibly not okay to joke about, fuck Abril Uno.

Uganda’s LGBT crisis explained in one comic

Earlier this month, artist Andy Warner illustrated a comic for the Center for Constitutional Rights, highlighting Lively’s exploits in Uganda. His comic, originally posted on the Huffington Post, is reproduced in full below. With the passage of the anti-gay law, the comic is more relevant than ever: according to Warner, now several of the people featured below “are fearing an imminent witch hunt.”

Insane people get angry about a Coke ad in which America the Beautiful is sung in different languages. Apparently you’re only allowed to be American if you speak English.

Link to the ad if you haven’t seen it.

This ridiculous and people are fucking stupid.

I know I rarely post anything of actual importance and I know none of you give a crap about what I say, but please read this.

I am from the very very very Republican state of Kansas, where our politicians have just passed a bill called the Kansas House Bill 2453 where it allows businesses and government employees to deny service to same sex couples. [x] [x] [x]

I, personally will not just stand here and take this unlawful discrimination from this God awful House of Reps, nor anyone else. There are so many things wrong with this bill that I can’t even type them out at this point. I am just so sickened by my home state and these representatives.

So, I am begging each and everyone of you to please sign this petition which opposes the bill. If you do not want to sign the bill, please at least reblog this post so others can see it. We only need 1,702 votes left, so PLEASE reblog this!

Irrelevant side note, is that a non-standard Italian language at the top? Wiki leads me to guess Neapolitan. Interesting that it’s on this ad!
