Chirlane McCray said she’s backing a program to help LBGT youth because she was a lesbian before marrying Mayor Bill de Blasio. “When I came to New York City, long ago back in 1977, I identified as a lesbian, so I know intimately the struggles that young people have had,” McCray said Tuesday morning on NY1. “I was not rejected by my family like so many of these young people are, but it’s really difficult,” she added. McCray touted a new program on the cable channel’s morning show that’s aimed at providing “workforce development program for runaway and homeless youth who are

While I have no concern that she "identified as a lesbian" (whatever that means), I do have a BIG problem with ANYONE marrying Bill DeBlasio.

I can't imagine de Blasio being someone who could light someone's fire. Either his wife never was a lesbian or she still is, and married him to have more opportunities. I think they are both bottom-feeding opportunists who are playing fast and loose with the taxpayers' money. But I don't feel at all sorry for the citizens of NYC because they keep electing clowns like de Blasio.

We've been told by the LGBTQWXYZ crowd, that if your a gay, lesbian, etc., it's because you were born that way, it's part of your DNA. Now this one says she changed to a straight heterosexual? Is that because she couldn't ride the public gravy train as a lesbian?

NASCAR has an all-new car coming in 2021, but a bigger change may happen the following year. “Nothing is fully confirmed until it hits the race track. That said, hybrid tech could certainly be in our cars by 2022, if all plans stay on track,” NASCAR’s senior vice president for racing development, John Probst, told Tech Crunch this week. Probst said the plan is still very much in development, and that the powertrains would be focused more on improving performance than fuel efficiency.

Biden was credited with forcing then-President Obama to publicly admit his support for such marriages, amid concerns that such a stance might alienate voters. However, far from being angry with Biden, Obama "gave me a kiss," Biden told CNN Thursday night. "I swear to God."

Last week, as Americans grappled with the prospect of presidential impeachment and the national capacity for surprise seemed fatally depleted, news came out that shook people to their core. It was about meat. Eating red and processed meat, the headlines declared, was no longer unhealthy. It seemed—at a glance—that a bad thing was now a good thing. The stories were based on a recently published analysis of existing evidence in which one group of researchers recommended that “adults continue their current levels of meat consumption.” This conclusion—which the journal that published the research called “guidelines”—was written by a group called NutriRECS. The group was formed recently,

When he became prime minister of Ethiopia in 2018, he threw himself at a breakneck pace into reforms at home, and peace negotiations with the rebel-turned-dictator Isaias Afwerki, president of Eritrea… In its official announcement, the Nobel Committee detailed a litany of accomplishments for Mr. Abiy in his first 100 days as prime minister:
