Donald Trump’s “tweet ban” on open military service for transgender people is unequivocally unconstitutional. It’s also – despite the Trump administration’s most recent late Friday night attempt to wrap up this old fish of a “policy” in today’s newspaper (spoiler alert: it’s still the same old rotting fish) – likely on its last legs.

Four federal courts have issued preliminary injunctions against the trans military ban: the Western District of Washington State, the District of Columbia, the District of Maryland, and the Central District of California.

Monday night, LGBT nemesis Karen England of the anti-LGBT conservative Capitol Resource Institute, shot out an Action Alert: “Bill Attacking Pastors & Counselors Before Committee.” The email peddled the usual fear-mongering, this time foregoing diatribes against transgender youth and going for the bigger picture: “California to Outlaw Speech.”

What AB 2943 actually does is expand existing California prohibitions on so-called “conversion therapy,” deemed both junk science and psychological abuse of minors in an earlier bill, SB 1172, by then-State Sen. Ted Lieu that Gov. Jerry Brown signed in 2012.

In 1978, a group of experimental Los Angeles artists got together to create a space for exhibitions of just this type: Performances, gatherings, and art showings that weren’t created with posterity in mind.

As of this week, the Getty Research Institute has acquired LACE’s entire, extensive archive and plans to use it to expand the community’s knowledge of L.A.’s thriving visual arts scene, past and present.

CAA and GLAAD are teaming to launch the Creators Summit, a daylong function aiming to increase authentic, inclusive representation of the LGBTQ community in entertainment, reports Deadline Hollywood.

The event, which will take place April 7, features panels and presentations to offer insight and resources on how to better support the visibility of LGBTQ characters, themes, and issues on screen and throughout the creative process.

The invited audience of entertainment figures who identify as LGBTQ or are actively working on LGBTQ-inclusive projects will hear from thought-leaders like Empire‘s Lee Daniels, writer and producer David Marshall Grant, Tanya Saracho, creator and showrunner of Starz’s new series Vida, among others.
