US marine suspected of killing transgender Filipino woman detained 22.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Pfc Joseph Scott Pemberton flown from warship to Philippine military camp after death of Filipino Jennifer Laude A US marine suspected in the gruesome killing of a transgender Filipino was flown on Wednesday from his warship to the Philippine militarys main camp, where he will continue to be guarded by fellow marines, in a compromise that eased a looming irritant over his custody. The emotional case involving Pfc Joseph Scott Pemberton and Jennifer Laude, whose former name was Jeffrey, came as the Philippines and the United States were strengthening ties with the recent signing of a defense accord that allows greater US access to Philippine military camps. The accord would help Washingtons bid to reassert its presence in Asia and Manila to deter what it calls Chinas aggressive moves to reinforce its claims in contested South China Sea ...

Pope Francis plays long game to reform Catholic Church 22.10.2014 FirstPost: World

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - After winning praise around the world for his fresh and open style, the honeymoon period seems to be over for Pope Francis. A tumultuous two-week Vatican synod exposed polarisation in the Catholic Church over his push to reform its traditional approach to sexual morality by becoming more welcoming to gays and easing restrictions on divorced and remarried Catholics. A Jesuit unafraid of frank debate, Francis has set off a clash of opinions not seen since the reformist Second Vatican Council of 1962-1965.

Catholic school bans Ellen Page and Julianne Moore romance shoot 22.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Lesbian love story has permission to film at Catholic boys school in New York State revoked A Catholic boys school has reversed its permission to allow civil rights drama Freeheld, starring Julianne Moore and Ellen Page as a lesbian couple, to shoot on location in New York State. Salesian high school in New Rochelle, New York, had been expected to double for a town hall in Ocean County, New Jersey, where Moores dying police detective and her car mechanic partner (Page) apply for a domestic partnership so that pension funds can be passed on, post-mortem. But after initially approving a shoot and allowing still photographs to be taken, the school informed the film-makers that it had changed its mind. They turned us down because of the subject matter, producer Michael Shamberg told the Hollywood Reporter, citing the fact that the school had previously allowed music video and commercial shoots. Using religion to justify bigotry makes me sad. Sending my support 2 the LGBT students at the school who I hope r ...

Suede: 10 of the best 22.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
We remember when it was all council blocks and drug-addled crones having bad sex around here to mark 20 years since Dog Man Star, here are 10 classics from Suede Some things are more important than ability, cawed Brett Anderson in 1989, when he placed an advert in NMEs back pages requesting a lead guitarist to join his band Suede. And so an early mantra was born: a desire to scandalise the dull and dreary, a conviction that kicking against the pricks was worthier than swimming with the tide, a belief that mincing and sashaying like androgynous sex-freaks were the noblest pursuits for a rocknroll band. Look, now, at the music papers from the early 90s to see how hideously and gloriously out of step Suede were with their early 90s contemporaries. Too smart and sexy for grunges slacker misanthropy; too tacky and trashy to fit in with London indie darlings Blur; a band who stood out like a smacked arse among their po-faced ...

Transgender troops seek to end taboo 22.10.2014 Asian Age: International
For Donna Harding, joining the Australian Army was a bid to try to suppress what she had known from an early age she was a girl trapped in a boy’s body. “It’s quite a common pathway for people who are gender conflicted, trying to fix what we see is wrong with us, and see the military as the way of doing that,” Maj. Harding said. She was speaking at an unprecedented gathering of transgender troops from foreign armies in Washington, sharing their experiences in the hopes of persuading the Pentagon and the US administration to break perhaps the last taboo — openly integrating members of their community into the military’s ranks. Eighteen countries around the world expressly allow transgender personnel to serve, including major US allies like Australia, Britain, Canada, Sweden and New Zealand. But in the United States, despite the 2011 repeal of the divisive “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law, which banned gays from serving openly, there is little talk of extending the same rights to transgender people. There are ...
