As we recognize Black History Month this February, it’s a perfect time to remember and honor all the of same-sex loving black figures who have stood out throughout the course of our nation’s history— people who marched, protested, and fought to help bring the LGBT communities to where we are today.
Michelle Barrera has been chosen as the new chief operations officer for Chase Brexton Health Care, the health care organization’s CEO announced today. Barrera joins Chase Brexton from Legacy Community Health in Houston, one of the nation’s largest Federally Qualified Health Centers, where she was vice president of clinical operations. Like Chase Brexton, Legacy was founded in the LGBT community in the late 1970s.
The Vatican - Pope Francis strongly implied that Donald Trump is un-Christian in a February 8 sermon, while Trump advisor Steve Bannon has been working with traditionalist Catholic clergy to undermine the pontiff. “In the social and civil context as well, I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges,’ the pope said in his weekly catechism lesson. “To not respond to evil with evil. To defeat evil with good, the offense with forgiveness. A Christian would never say 'you will pay for that.' Never. That is not a Christian gesture. An offense you overcome with forgiveness. To live in peace with everyone.” Francis has used the 'bridge not walls' theme before. Last year, after visiting the US-Mexican border, the pope replied to a question about Trump by saying that anyone who wants to build a wall instead of a bridge is “not Christian.”
If you like to gaze up at the stars, The Community College of Baltimore County has a beautiful new state-of-the-art planetarium in its Mathematics and Science Hall on the CCBC Catonsville campus.

It has been in operation since 1966 and now has a newly-installed Spitz SciDome XD digital projector. The projector is also housed in a brand new ten-meter dome planetarium.

Federal Judge Neil Gorsuch– on the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver and a former corporate lawyer– was tapped January 31st by Donald Trump to fill the vacancy left by the death one year ago of hard-right-wing Justice Antonin Scalia – and LGBT groups were quick to oppose the nomination.
