Lord Ivar Mountbatten, Queen Elizabeth II’s third cousin once removed, will marry his partner at the first same-sex marriage in the extended British royal family.
His wedding to James Coyle is set for summer 2018. Ivar, a great-great-great grandson of Queen Victoria, came out as gay in 2016, according to the New York Daily News.
This is not Ivar’s first wedding. He was married to Lady Penny Mountbatten for 16 years, and they have three children. His ex-wife will give Ivar away at the ceremony, he told the Daily Mail.

Californians who don’t want their lawmakers to ban the Bible, to criminalize counselors who help people with same-sex attractions and to dictate their moral values apparently will have one chance to tell them.
That’s at a hearing before the legislature’s Judiciary Committee on June 12, where AB 2943 will be discussed.
“This will be the only committee hearing with opportunities for public testimonies before going to the Appropriations Committee and the state Senate for a vote,” advised Liberty Counsel, which is opposed to the radical plan.
It would make counseling against same-sex lifestyles a crime by calling it “consumer fraud.”
The bill also would ban printed materials that advocate for ways to become free of unwanted same-sex attractions. And several experts contend the broadly written proposal could ban sale of the Bible.

A judge in Canada has declared two men and one woman in a polyamorous relationship to be the legal parents of a child, saying having three parents is in the child’s best interests.
“The relationship has been a stable one and has been ongoing since June 2015. None of the partners in this relationship is married and, while the identity of the mother is clear, the biological father of the child is unknown,” Justice Robert Fowler of the Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court said, according to Financial Post.
The judge didn’t ask for a paternity test to be taken.
“Although outside the traditional family model, (the relationship) provides a safe and nurturing environment,” Fowler said in the decision.

The UK taxpayer will pay around £20,000 so a transgender murderer, accused of having sex with women in female prisons, can be flown hundreds of miles for a surgical sex change.
Paris Green was born Peter Laing but began “identifying” as a female in 2011, before being jailed for life in 2013 for killing and torturing Robert Shankland.
The victim was lured to a flat before being beaten so badly footprints were left on his neck, having a plastic bag forced over his head, and being sexually assaulted with a rolling pin.
Despite the nature of her crimes, and retaining male biology, the killer began her sentence of at least 18 years at Cornton Vale women’s jail in Stirling, Scotland, but was moved after reports she was having sex with female prisoners in a cell.
She will now have the sex change after being transported from her cell at HMP Edinburgh to a hospital in Southern England under constant guard, the Daily Record reports.

A baby could become the first person without a legal mother if a transgender man wins a historic court battle.
Lawyers representing the parent told a judge that he had been biologically able to get pregnant and give birth but had legally become a man when the child was born.
The man wants to be identified as the child’s “father” or “parent” on a birth certificate, however a birth registrar told the man the law requires people who give birth to children to be registered as mothers.
The man has since taken legal action against the body set up to administer statutory provisions relating to the registration of births and deaths after complaining of discrimination.
He said forcing him to register as the child’s “mother” breached his human right to respect for private and family life.

Thousands of children, some as young as 4, are being referred to the United Kingdom’s Gender Identity Development Service, creating a waiting list at the National Health Service facility.
The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has revealed in a new report that referrals for children are up 25 percent from just a year earlier.
Polly Carmichael, a consulting psychologist and a director for the GIDS, said there is more recognition of students with gender issues and more acceptance, which apparently translates into more referrals.
“There is no single explanation for the increase in referral figures, but we do know in recent years that there has been significant progress towards the acceptance and recognition of transgender and gender diverse people in our society,” Carmichael said in the report. “There is also greater public knowledge about specialist gender clinics and the pathways into them, and an increased awareness of the possibilities around physical treatments for younger adolescents.

After a major campaign to impose controversial LGBTQ policies on the state’s 4-H youth program – including the admission of biological males into female restrooms, locker rooms, showers and overnight accommodations, as well as mandatory use of exotic transgender pronouns – those in charge of Iowa’s 4-H program now say they will not be adopting the transgender guidelines after all.
The dramatic turnaround comes after Christian public-interest law firm Liberty Counsel challenged the proposed policy guidelines on multiple legal grounds and demanded that Iowa State University, which administers 4-H in the state, reverse course or face litigation. Liberty Counsel, in turn, become involved as a result of WND’s investigative efforts, having published a series of exclusive reports on this below-the-radar movement – first in Idaho, and later in Iowa. The WND reports reveal a largely unpublicized, multi-pronged, state-by-state movement to impose highly contentious transgender policies on the nation’s 4-H rural youth organizations – policies similar to those that have caused major battles over their implementation in the U.S. military and which directly led to a national boycott of Target Corp.

The former manager of an event center owned by a Catholic church is suing the church because it had a morals clause in its contract banning LGBT events.
The dispute began three years ago when a group of African-American LGBT activists asked to use the Ambridge Event Center in Portland, Oregon.
The application was turned down because the center is owned by the Holy Rosary Catholic Church. The church had a morals clause in the agreement under which Holladay Investors was managing it the center.
Ambridge manager Alan Peters apologized to the LGBT organization and said “he would update the center’s policies to affirm compliance with the law and would re-train employees.”
The for-profit company soon hired an LGBT employee as well.
ORLANDO, Fla. — Photographs and videos have emerged online of a rainbow Mickey Mouse hat that is being sold at Disney’s theme parks in Florida and California, the latest development in the company’s continued accommodation of the sin of homosexuality.
“Disney World got gay ears and I need to get them just to [vulgarity] off old religious people,” one visitor posted to social media. “Disney now has gay [expletive] ears!” another wrote.
The red hat features rainbow ears and embroidery of two Mickey hands forming a rainbow heart.

If your school allows the “Day of Silence,” keep your child home this Friday
On Friday, April 27, high schools (and many middle schools) across the country will be hosting the LGBT movement’s annual “Day of Silence.”
During this all-day event, student activists and even school officials encourage students to be silent for the entire day as a sign of solidarity with the international LGBT movement. Students are encouraged to wear special pro-homosexual badges, sticker, and bracelets—which are often handed out at the school entrances that day. There are also pro-LGBT posters in the hallways, handouts and even workshops.
Although the adult activists claim that the “Day of Silence” (DOS) is put together by “students,” it is in fact organized behind the scenes by adults with the enthusiastic cooperation of school officials. They use materials and instructions from a national homosexual activist group.
You can actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes and help depoliticize the learning environment by keeping your child out of school if your child’s school participates, promotes or allows “Day of Silence” activities.
