Câmara de Lisboa recusa secção LGBT nas bibliotecas
Excerto: Em contrapartida, vários livros de não-ficção já hoje aparecem identificados no catálogo online das bibliotecas da capital como sendo de temática homossexual, tarefa essa que foi feita pela associação ILGA Portugal, segundo Susana Silvestre. Note-se, ainda assim, que os temas transgénero não surgem identificados. E as estantes específicas, como queria o Bloco, muito provavelmente não vão aparecer.

Nebraska’s Aggressive New Plan To Keep Transgender Students From Playing Sports
The Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) has been wrestling with what to do with transgender athletes for years. In December of 2012, the NSAA quietly opened the door for transgender students to play for the teams that match their gender identities, but its latest policy proposal places several hurdles into the process, some of which are likely to be insurmountable. In fact, the policy segregates the locker room usage of almost every transgender student who would take advantage of it, which is quite likely a violation of federal law.
