    WASHINGTON ó President Trumpís niece Mary sure seemed happy to be in the company of her ďmonsterĒ of an uncle as she smiled for a picture sitting behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. The photo, published by the Daily Mail on Wednesday, was reportedly taken in April 2017 when the family celebrated the 80th birthday of the presidentís sister, Maryanne, just months after he was inaugurated.

    Maryland Republican Rep. Andy Harris says Washington, DC wonít decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, cacti and plants on his watch. Harris told The Post heís appalled that drug reform activists submitted on Monday what they say is enough signatures to get an initiative on the November ballot making natural hallucinogens the lowest law enforcement priority. Harris said he will force a House Appropriations Committee vote next week to stop it, using the power of Congress over DCís budget.
  • Minneapolis elects 2 black transgender City Council members

    Minneapolis has elected two black transgender representatives to its City Council, adding to what advocacy groups have described as a banner election for transgender people in public office. Andrea Jenkins easily won the race Tuesday night for an open seat in South Minneapolis, with roughly 73 percent of the vote. Jenkins, a 56-year-old poet and historian who transitioned in her 30s, spent years as a policy aide to two previous council members in the same ward. Phillipe Cunninghamís victory took longer because of Minneapolisí instant-runoff voting system. But by Wednesday afternoon, the city announced Cunningham ó a 29-year old transgender...

    'Our hate speech policy prohibits videos which assert that someone’s sexuality or gender identity is a disease or a mental illness,' YouTube said in a statement. Information provided exclusively to The Federalist shows YouTube removed a Heritage Foundation video featuring testimony from a former transgender-identifying woman for violating the company’s hate speech policy. YouTube confirmed the decision in a Thursday email to The Federalist.Now Heritage is fighting back with a new video, released first to The Federalist, in which Federalist contributor Walt Heyer doubles down.“I said that children suffering from gender dysphoria should not be encouraged to try experimental hormones...

    JK Rowling had been tweeting warm, gushing messages to children who submitted drawings for her new book ĖďEight? How can this have been done by an eight-year-old?!Ē Ė when, abruptly, her Twitter feed took a sharp swerve sideways. She shared an article about period poverty in the developing world and Covid-19, tacking on her own, snarky take. ďĎPeople who menstruate.í Iím sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?Ē It was an odd way to launch the latest salvo in the most toxic of culture wars. If you failed to recognise...

    Andie Hosch, 23, and his partner decided to try for a baby one year ago - while he was transitioning with the use of hormones and undergoing surgery. "But I started seeing some other transgender people getting pregnant that and I started exploring the idea and unlearning the internalized transphobia that told me I couldn't be a man who could birth a child. "A part of me was me feeling as though I shouldn't want to carry a child because of internalized beliefs about what it means 'to be a man' and that somehow carrying a child invalidated my gender."...

    We know that Americans are increasingly sorting themselves by political affiliation into friendships, even into neighborhoods. Something similar seems to be happening with doctors and their various specialties. New data show that, in certain medical fields, large majorities of physicians tend to share the political leanings of their colleagues, and a study suggests ideology could affect some treatment recommendations. In surgery, anesthesiology and urology, for example, around two-thirds of doctors who have registered a political affiliation are Republicans. In infectious disease medicine, psychiatry and pediatrics, more than two-thirds are Democrats. The conclusions are drawn from data compiled by researchers at...

    For the first time, the U.S. Navy has granted a waiver to allow a transgender sailor to continue her military service despite the presidentís ban on transgender people serving openly in the armed forces. Attorneys for the sailor and a spokesperson for Navy Secretary James E. McPherson confirmed earlier this week that senior government officials had approved the waiver. Navy spokesperson Brittany Stephens said the sailor, known only as "Jane Doe" in media reports and court documents, ďrequested a waiver to serve in their preferred genderĒ and will be ďallowed to adhere to standards associated with their preferred gender, such...

    Councillors from the city of Basel, as well as representatives from the National Council, have spoken out against the Federal Council for its refusal to put in place laws that would restrict ďgay conversion therapyĒ. Despite gay conversion therapy being heavily criticized by advocacy groups and outlawed in some parts of the world, the LGBTIQ Pink Cross Switzerland organization says that it is ďcommonĒ in Switzerland. The Federal Council has however stated that it opposes a ban, arguing that the current laws are sufficient to protect people from all types of alternate therapies.

    SAVANNAH, Ga. -- A transgender fire chief has filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against the small Georgia city where she led the fire department for more than a decade, then was fired 18 months after she began coming to work as a woman. Rachel Mosby says her firing last summer by the city of Byron not only cost her wages and retirement benefits, but also tarnished her reputation. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Macon says city officials fired Mosby ďbased on her sex, gender identity, and notions of sex stereotyping.Ē A city of about 4,500 in...

    SAN FRANCISCO - California is on its way to acquiring nearly 16,000 hotel rooms to house the homeless during the pandemic, Gov.

He took the opportunity to scold leaders of unnamed cities for blocking efforts to house the homeless, asking them to ďplease consider the moralityĒ of their decisions. The pandemic...

    Depression, suicidal thoughts and self-injury are common among U.S. transgender teens, new research shows. The study also found that hormone therapy leads to significant improvements in gender dysphoria -- the feeling of being uncomfortable with the gender they were assigned at birth. For the study, the researchers analyzed the medical records of 158 transgender teens treated at a pediatric endocrinology clinic between 2014 and 2019. The patients included 107 affirmed males (female to male), 47 affirmed females (male to female), and four who considered themselves non-binary. Affirmed gender is an individual's declared gender identity. Overall, 78.5 percent had a mental...

    The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted life for billions of people, forcing the world to deal with a sudden loss of jobs, security, and regular health care. But for those who identify as transgender, these barriers have existed for years, and advocates fear the pandemic may only make them worse. One transgender woman, who will be referred to as Jane out of fear for her safety, left her home in a right-leaning town along Florida's Gulf Coast for a homeless shelter in New York City so she can get better access to medical care. She's waited years to get gender affirming...
