A famous gay activist is deceased Tuesday at 86 years old.
Frank Kameny, American LGBT militant since the Sixties, is gone.
Native of New York, he worked in the American army but had been fired and banned to work as a civil servant in 1958 because he was gay.
This doctor in astronomy had then engaged in a long life of militancy for LGBT rights, fighting against discriminations in the civil service, against anti-gay laws or classification in psychiatry, repealed in 1973, before homosexuality was considered like mental illness.
Australia has introduced a new gender category on their passports: X or indeterminate for transgender or intersex individuals (Bielski). Britain is also considering this proposal (Baghdjian).According to both representatives in Britain and Australia, the change is to prevent discrimination against individuals who do not fit within traditional gender boundaries.
UNfortunately today I will not be able to upload a video as I am away for the weekend until Tuesday, drinking and eating pizza and whatnot. BUT!! I SHALL upload one on Wednesday in order to make up for my unforgivable behaviour :P I will STILL be giving my opinion on a few things, even if it's just in writing!! (Surely I'm not just entertaining for my face?)
Welcome to the SECOND EVER episode of LGBT World where I get a little crazy and put a little more of my personality into the stories ;)
