pride parade route amid fears of another terror attack. The new route for Sunday’s event in France
is half the original length requiring less police. US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced
the lifting of a ban on transgender people serving in the military yesterday. The announcement came a day earlier than expected
after years of work by activists. A survey by lesbian dating App, HER has found
half of all gay & bisexual women feel unwelcome at Pride. Despite three quarters of respondents living
in a city with a pride event, less than half said they would attend. Caitlyn Jenner has endorsed Donald Trump for
president, being ridiculed for her view that he is pro women & pro LGBT. Jenner, who previously endorsed anti-gay Ted
Cruz criticised President Obama’s economic strategy and Constitutional reforms. And finally, Justin Trudeau has given an exclusive
