Adoption: time for a change?

Adoption: time for a change?
- Contrary to popular perception, the overwhelming majority (82%) of children in local authority care are not babies and young children "waiting for adoption", but older children aged between 5–16 years. For these children conventional adoption is likely to be a remote, if not impossible, aspiration particularly in light of the continuing decline in successful adoptive placements. On 31 March 2016 only a tiny percentage (just under 3%) of the 70,000 children in local authority care in England were subject to placement orders for adoption but had not yet been placed, and most (73%) of that tiny group were considered 'hard to place' (meaning a child aged 5 years or over, BME, disabled or part of a sibling group) (DfE: Children looked after in England (including adoption and care leavers) year ending 31 March 2016; Adoption Leadership Board quarterly data report: July to Sept 2015).

Are Gay Dating Apps As Destructive As Drugs?

Are Gay Dating Apps As Destructive As Drugs?
- In June 2017 we’re all too aware of profiles that happily state ‘No Fats’, ‘No Fems’, ‘No Asians’, ‘No Blacks!’ These apps have proven to be cold, lonely and soul destroying places - whether you’re considered one of the above, or not. I’ve seen horrendous lines like, “I block more Asians than the Great Wall of China”. The community, on the surface, used to be respectful to one another. It can often feel like gay dating apps almost invite trolling - there’s no vetting, countless faceless profiles with ambiguous names and ultimately, hardly any moderation.

- Oscar winner Olympia Dukakis and three-time Emmy winner Laura Linney will be reprising their roles as Anna Magrigal and Mary Ann Singleton, respectively, according to Deadline Hollywood.

Will tackling its mainstream media help Peru successfully advocate for LGBTI equality?

Will tackling its mainstream media help Peru successfully advocate for LGBTI equality?
- Contrary to popular belief, LGBTI people remain discriminated against in Peru, which has a total population of more than 32 million and of which an estimated 11 million lives in its capital, Lima.
In the face of a strong anti-LGBTI political will that continues to perpetuate hate crimes committed against LGBTI people, I met Peruvian LGBTI activist Gabriel de la Cruz, who launched a new organization yesterday (28 June) to advocate for equality through the country’s media channels.
But the ultimate question has to be: why through media, and how will this new strategy pan out for the Peruvian LGBTI community?

Men take on the cobbles in stilettos for Madrid Gay Pride race

Men take on the cobbles in stilettos for Madrid Gay Pride race
- Men taped stiletto-heeled shoes to their feet and raced down a narrow cobbled street in Madrid on Thursday as part of the city's Gay Pride festival, one of the world's largest LGBT pride celebrations.
Competitors in the annual male-only event made the precarious dash under rainbow bunting and cheered on by crowds clutching pink balloons who lined the street in Chueca, a gay neighbourhood in central Madrid.
Rules state that mens' heels must be at least 10 cm (4 inches) high and the shoes are measured before the race.
