A woman in Nebraska has filed a lawsuit against all homosexuals listing the plaintiffs as “God and His Son, Jesus Christ.” The woman, Sylvia Ann Driskell, hopes to sue all gay people on the entire planet based on the argument that gay people are breaking “religious and moral laws.” The case, listed on the docket as Driskell v. Homosexuals, hopes to settle once and for all for the 66-year-old whether homosexuality is a sin or not. Citing Bible verses and Webster’s Dictionary, the seven-page petition states: “That homosexuality is a sin and that they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality. Why else would they have been hiding in the closet.” [NBC]

Let’s see how far this case goes.

After drag queens across the country found out last fall that their accounts would be deleting because they weren’t using their real names, Facebook still hasn’t changed their real-name policy. As a result, the same queens who protested the decision have created a social-media campaign of their own using #NoPrideForFacebook in addition to a petition demanding that Facebook and its employees lose their right to march in both New York City and San Francisco Prides.

Sign the petition here.

JetBlue to Begin Charter Flights from New York to Havana, Cuba

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that JetBlue Airways together with Cuba Travel Services will be the first airline to fly charter flights from New York City directly to Havana, Cuba. The announcement comes after Cuomo’s recent trade mission to Cuba that also included Jet Blue CEO Robin Hayes and other New York business leaders. “Our Global NY initiative and our trade mission to Cuba are all about opening the door to new economic opportunities, and JetBlue’s exciting announcement today is proof that our approach is delivering results for New York businesses,” Governor Cuomo said. “By leading one of the first state trade missions to Cuba as the United States reestablishes diplomatic relations, we placed New York State businesses at the front of the line for new prospects in Cuba, that will in turn support jobs and economic activity here at home. I commend JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes for his leadership in making JetBlue the first major carrier to announce a direct flight from New York to Cuba in this new era between our nations.”

The Havana flight will leave on Friday nights out of JFK beginning on July 3.

Travelers, though, still won’t be able to directly book a flight without going through the appropriate agency. [NYS]

Five Horrible Things Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee Has Said About Gay People

May 5th, 2015 Joseph Pedro

Today, the vehemently anti-gay Mike Huckabee announced that he is joining the growing number of Republican men (and woman) vying for the party’s nomination in the 2016 election. Thanks to the HRC, who has followed the former-Arkansas governor’s career, we have a list of some of the most egregious things he has said in regards to the LGBT community.

Overview: Mike Huckabee has been a staunch opponent of LGBT equality, dating back to when he first burst onto the public scene in the 1990s and declared that “we should isolate the carriers” of HIV and that AIDS research received “an unfair share of federal dollars.” Huckabee has since tried to walk those comments back, but he’s maintained opposition to LGBT equality on every issue that has come before him. [Citations/Full Research Brief]

1) On Marriage Equality: Huckabee opposes marriage equality and has suggested judges who rule in favor of it should be impeached. [Citations/Full Research Brief]

2) On LGBT Discrimination: Huckabee has argued against local ordinances that would protect LGBT Americans from discrimination.  And he defended Indiana’s right to discriminate legislation. [Citations/Full Research Brief]

3) On Conversion Therapy: Huckabee has supported dangerous “conversion therapy” that coerces minors into ‘treatment’ that can lead to depression and suicide. [Citations/Full Research Brief]

4) Harmful Rhetoric: Huckabee compares being LGBT to alcohol use. In opposing Huckabee marriage equality, Huckabee said in 2010, “We can get into the ick factor, but the fact is two men in a relationship, two women in a relationship, biologically, that doesn’t work the same.” [Citations/Full Research Brief]

5) Adoption: Huckabee opposed allowing gay and transgender Americans to adopt children, because “children aren’t puppies.” [Citations/Full Research Brief]

Gay Travel: What’s New in Gay and Trendy Chicago, Illinois

The stools at Dove’s Luncheonette (1545 N Damen Ave. Tel: 773-645-4060. www.doveschicago.com) in Wicker Park are crafted of a shiny, rich brown vinyl and gleam with newness. On a bustling weekday afternoon each one will be flattened by Midwestern butts—which are arguably more voluminous during the winter months. Dee Dee Warwick’s “A Fool for Love” is playing on a record player, not on the vintage Select-O-Matic 100 jukebox hiding in the corner, which works only about half of the time. Meanwhile, gratuitous wood paneled walls give the whole place a kind of 70s dive bar vibe and provides the requisite cue that we are deep in the heart of hipster country. But the real draw at this newly opened throwback diner from superstar chef Paul Kahan (Big Star, the Publican) is the menu whose Tex-Mex inspired standouts include smoked brisket with avocado, pico de gallo, chicarones and green chile vinaigrette rolled into a large flour tortilla, or chicken fried chicken drenched in chorizo verde gravy and topped with sweat peas and pearl onions. It is joints like this that remind the world why Chicago is everyone’s kind of town.

There is much to be excited about in Chicago these days. Yes, it’s still cold December through March (and sometimes November and April), yes the crime rate is higher than residents would like it to be (although way down overall when measured against previous decades), and yes the Cubs still suck (but does anybody really honestly care?). On the other hand, a spate of enchanting new public parks are slated for 2015 arrival (two of which are profiled below), neighborhoods like the West Loop, Fulton Market, Pilsen, and Logan Square that were quiet a mere decade ago are now chockablock with bars, restaurants, shops, and art galleries, and the city’s queer scene has gotten so big that Boystown on weekend summer nights rivals places like the French Quarter and Ybor City in terms of exuberant revelry.

At a recent Dodgers game, the Kiss Cam panned to the usual heterosexual couples, but then, for the first time, displayed a gay couple, not two straight guys. When the two men kissed, the stadium erupted in cheers and applause.

Watch after the jump…
