Congress is poised to take action on the Equality Act, a sweeping new reform of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that would finally prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in almost all matters of life.

The boys were back Saturday night, Feb. 20, at Hydrate Nightclub in Lakeview. So, too, were the beats.

Prominent Christian leaders with vast influence and following are in an urgent mission to stop the Equality Act from passing in the Senate—after it passed in the House on Thursday.

In an interview with LGBT sports blog Outsports, former professional football player Esera Tuaolo said that he believes the NFL is ready for an openly gay player.

The U.S. House passed the Equality Act on Thursday in a 224-206 vote; only three Republicans joined Democrats.

The FBI has issued a warning to beware of scam artists who are soliciting fake coronavirus vaccines or cures in an effort to take advantage of people.

Chicago is reopening the lakefront and hundreds of playgrounds, as COVID-19 metrics continue to improve across the city, the Chicago Park District announced on Tuesday.

Gov. Spencer Cox (R-Utah) said that transgender students must be able to participate in the sports they want to play.

A poll released Wednesday finds lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender identification has increased in the United States.
