The Studly Sudser

From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
 Like many of you, I first took notice of actor Michael Roark, shirtless around the pool in 2011's Dolphin Tale. Many co-starring roles later, including several stops on the CW and a small role in Magic Mike, (which I don't remember...) Roark has landed on The Young & the Restless

 Roark has actually been on the show for awhile, but I just noticed after seeing some shirtless captures from his role of Travis. With is sexy smile and eyes, and 'hot and ready' body, Roark is perfectly suited to be a soap stud.   It might be time for a return visit to Genoa City...

Mom Files Lawsuit To Stop 17-Year-Old Trans Daughter From Transitioning

The suit could block more than 6,800 trans teenagers from receiving care.
From: NewNowNext
A Minnesota mother filed a lawsuit this week to stop her transgender 17-year-old from continuing hormone replacement treatment without her permission.

“It was brought to my knowledge that my son [sic] began receiving hormone replacement treatments from Park Nicollet Health Services to transition from male to female, with medical assistance paying for this,” Anmarie Calgaro told reporters in St. Paul.

“I was not consulted or informed about this in any way.”

 In her statement, Calgaro repeatedly refers to her trans daughter with male pronouns in spite of a doctor’s letter that confirms the 17-year-old “has had appropriate, permanent clinical treatment for transition to the new female gender.”

Calgaro insists the suit is meant only to challenge a Minnesota law that allows some minors to access medical care and procedures without the consent of their parents.

“Any minor who is living separate and apart from parents… and who is managing personal financial affairs, regardless of the source or extent of the minor’s income, may give effective consent to personal medical, dental, mental and other health services, and the consent of no other person is required.”

According to the emancipation documents filed by her daughter, Calgaro has “made it known that she no longer wishes to have any contact with her [daughter]” and that when she left the home to live with her father, she “[took] no actions to report [her] as a runaway…and made no attempts to bring [her] home.”

The statement was filed in October 2015. By January 2016, the teen had begun to transition and was issued new identity documents marking her as female.

“The news that county agencies and health service providers, the school and other county and state offices were completely bypassing me came as a total shock,” Calgaro said while beginning to cry. “Why wasn’t I even notified?”

The statute that permits Calgaro’s daughter to receive treatment also allows emancipated minors to receive abortions without parental notification. If the suit is successful, young women may find it increasingly difficult to make their own decisions regarding their reproductive rights.

“I’m… taking this action for the benefit of all parents and families, who may be facing the same violation of their rights,” said Calgaro, “So that they and others in the future may be spared from the same tragic events.”

Orlando Cruz: I Won’t Stop Until I’m The World’s First Gay Boxing Champion

The 35-year-old boxer is ready to break new ground.
From: NewNowNext
 Openly gay boxer Orlando Cruz says he won’t quit until he’s a world champion.

 Cruz, 35, announced his intentions ahead of his match against Luis Sanchez in October. 

“We are working hard for this fight and hope to do well,” Cruz told El Voerco. “We are facing Berchelt in January or February for the interim world title. But I have an excellent team and we have no hurry to get to that point. We are at the time of assimilating weight and going step by step.”

“At 35 years old, I feel great,” he added. “I know my opponent will come to fight, but I am prepared and ready for victory and then to be crowned world champion. I’m focused on becoming the only gay world champion in boxing history.”

 Cruz came out publicly in 2012, declaring “I have and will always be a proud Puerto Rican. I have always been and always will be a proud gay man.”

Since then, the featherweight fighter has gone on to marry his longtime boyfriend and become an advocate for the LGBT community.

In July, he dedicated a fight—and his eventual victory—to the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.

At the weigh-in, Cruz wore rainbow briefs and stood in silence as a bell tolled 49 times, once for each life lost.

Cruz, who sports a record of 25-4-1, will face Terry Flanagan, for the WBO Lightweight title on November 26.

Marriage Equality

It’s been a long time coming, but in 2015 same-sex couples achieved the freedom to marry in the U.S. of A. For that, we are thankful. Thankful that the dream of so many has finally been realized and for the work of activists that helped make this possible.

And we’re also thankful so many continue to advance equality and freedom globally.

Macklemore’s New Track ‘Wednesday Morning’ Responds to Trump’s Election

From: Towleroad
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released a new song on Thursday with a message of resistance and a wish for hope in response to the U.S. election. The song was produced by Joshua ‘Budo’ Karp with lyrics by Ben Haggerty.

Listen and read the lyrics below:

Bad taste, bad taste in my mouth
Glad wave, I’m glad wavin’ at a Patriots house
Lookin’ for change in the couch
Mad world, mad world, that’s what the TV said
Imagine tryna keep your head
While your daughter sleeps in bed
And when she wakes up, will the world be the same?
Will my girl be afraid in the home of the brave?
See I hope, I hope, that it’s gon’ be alright
But what a hell’uva a night

Humanity is a privilege, we can’t give in
When they build walls, we’ll build bridges
This is resistance, we’re resilient
When they spread hate, we shine brilliant
March by the millions ’til they hear the children
We found ourselves at a distance
Open up the jails and the overcrowded cells
When we oppress anyone, we oppress ourselves
Greatest gift I ever learned is helpin’ someone else
You build, believe and build ’cause you forget about yourself
Service, purpose, work if you work it
Love everyone regardless of the God they worship
This isn’t the Apocalypse
We can’t address the hate until we acknowledge it
If Jesus was alive, would he let Mohamed in?
This isn’t nature, my daughter hugs strangers
We teach fear and preach hatred
Put up a fence, scared to meet our neighbors
Think that if we let them in, they’ll take advantage of us later
There’s so much anger and this world is ours, raise her
My daughter, hope it’s a dream when I wake up tomorrow

Bad taste, bad taste in my mouth
Glad wave, I’m glad wavin’ at a Patriots house
Lookin’ for change in the couch
Mad world, mad world, that’s what the TV said
Imagine tryna keep your head
While your daughter sleeps in bed
And when she wakes up, will the world be the same?
Will my girl be afraid in the home of the brave?
See I hope, I hope, that it’s gon’ be alright
But what a hell’uva a night

And we fight for the people that haven’t had a voice
Fight for the first amendment, fight for freedom of choice
Fight for women’s rights, if she does or doesn’t care
We ride for all the Queer folk and fight for all the [?]
I’m not moving to Canada, not fleeing the nation
No time for apathy, no more tears and no complainin’
Gotta fight harder for the next four and what we’re faced with
Got my daughter in my arms and he is not gonna raise her

Bad taste, bad taste in my mouth
Glad wave, I’m glad wavin’ at a Patriots house
Lookin’ for change in the couch
Mad world, mad world, that’s what the TV said
Imagine tryna keep your head
While your daughter sleeps in bed
And when she wakes up, will the world be the same?
Will my girl be afraid in the home of the brave?
See I hope, I hope, that it’s gon’ be alright
But what a hell’uva a night

Transgender Day of Remembrance: Let’s Do More Than Just Say Their Names

Learn about the lives, the passions and the dreams of those we have lost this year.
From: NewNowNext
 With at least 26 murders so far, 2016 is officially the deadliest year on record for America’s transgender community.

The majority of those we lost were trans women of color, a group that faces a greater risk of death by hate violence than any other, according to the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs.

 On November 20, Transgender Day of Remembrance 2016, Logo will share these names on the air throughout the day. Below, we pay respect to these individuals. We celebrate who they were in life, not just death, and acknowledge the loss felt by loved ones.

Because many states don’t include gender identity in hate-crime data—and trans victims are often mis-gendered—it’s difficult to get an accurate picture of this crisis. There are doubtless others whose fates are still unknown, and we honor and grieve for them, as well.

Monica enjoyed cooking and loved listening to Madonna. “She was very warm and friendly,” Monica’s friend Diedre told the Austin American-Statesman.
