Baltimore rallies against hate and violence

The white supremacists stood in a circle in the Charlottesville park, hoodless but waving Confederate and Nazi flags and posters of the cross, chanting in booming unison “Fuck you, faggots.” They were surrounded by counter-protesters but separated from them by two fences, yellow police tape, and a wall of stone-faced police in their lime green vests. A Huffington Post reporter captured the moment in a tweet: “You heard that right. They’re chanting “Fuck you faggots.” 2017. #Charlottesville”

Trans service members sue Trump over military ban

Washington, D.C. - Five Transgender service members filed suit against Donald Trump and other federal officials on August 9. The five are collectively identified as 'Jane Doe' in the 15-page complaint filed on their behalf by the National Center for Lesbian Rights and GLAD (GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders). The lawsuit - now known as Doe v. Trump - charges that Trump's tweets barring Trans people from military service “upset the reasonable expectations of plaintiffs and thousands of other transgender service members and the men and women with whom they serve and fight.” This undermining of Trans service members' expectation of continued military service amounts to a violation of the right to equal protection and due process under the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit seeks a declaration that Trump's proposed ban on Transgender military service is unconstitutional, and asks the court for an injunction stopping it from going into effect.
