    Author Dr. Charlotte Laws discusses the ballot initiative she wrote called The Intolerant Jackass Act, which punishes anyone who brings forth an initiative that suggests the killing of gays or lesbians. Laws proposed this in response to the Sodomite Suppression Act (SSA). The SSA was drafted by a Southern CA attorney and calls for shooting gays in the head. Charlotte Laws is interviewed about her proposal on "Which Way, LA?" on KCRW on March 23, 2015 by Warren Olney. Other guests include Joe Matthews and Kim Alexander. Laws' proposal requires that intolerant jackasses (like McLaughlin) get sensitivity training and make a hefty donation to the LGBT community.

This year the competition takes place in Shanghai, China on March 23 to 29. In the above interview Radford, his friend Dylan Moscovitch and Orser, talk about of homosexuality in figure skating.

                    FULL VERSION - OFFICIAL Discrimination against individuals based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression (SOGIE) will always be a human rights concern. In addition to this rights-based approach, there’s also an economic component that is often overlooked. Research now shows that discrimination against sexual minorities—including but not limited to LGBT individuals—contributes to a cycle of poverty and can limit their ability to benefit from the means of economic development. Further, one’s opportunities in life, from education to employment to healthcare to justice to a life free of violence, are often limited by this discrimination. This film interviews LGBTI leaders from around the world to discuss the impact of punitive laws and social stigma, while also respecting the resilience of these communities to advance real change. The film ends with appropriate entry points for the World Bank to examine SOGIE within the development agenda; namely data collection and support for capacity building. We thank our partners on this film: Labrys (Kyrgyzstan), India HIV/AIDS Alliance, Mitr Trust (India), Quality of Citizenship Jamaica, The Color Pink Group (Jamaica), JFLAG (Jamaica), and Helem (Lebanon). Produced and Directed by: Phil Crehan and Jake Fagan with oversight by Fabrice Houdart. Full movie website will be available shortly. --------- The Nordic Trust Fund for Human Rights supports a knowledge and learning program for World Bank staff and management to develop a more informed view of how human rights relate to the Bank’s work.
