An anonymous hacker, known only on Twitter as @WauchulaGhost, and a few of their friends hijacked several Twitter accounts that were known to be associated or in support of ISIS.  This has been going on for a few months, @WauchulaGhost is apparently affiliated with the "hacktivist" group Anonymous. After the attack in Orlando, they and some others have stared adding rainbows, messages saying "Out and Proud" and even some links to gay porn to these compromised accounts. According to Newsweek, the hacker claims to have taken over at least 200 accounts and plans to continue this campaign.

North Carolina has become infamous for passing a bill in March that blocks measures to protect members of the LGBTQ community from discrimination. This has caused many famous musicians, like Bruce Springsteen, to cancel their concerts. Paypal has even canceled an expansion of the company that was supposed to open in North Carolina. Now, people in the state of North Carolina can't even look at porn. 

That's right, a popular website for sexy media called XHamster has blocked all computers from North Carolina. Instead of seeing... whatever it is they were searching for, they'll see a blank screen. Eventually, they plan to replace that blank screen with a petition to repeal the law.

Evan Young of Longmont, Colorado was banned from making his valedictorian speech at his own graduation from Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School. He submitted a draft of the speech to administrators and then provided them a revised speech where he made all the changes they asked for but one. He had planned to come out as gay during the speech but the school would not permit him to include any references to his sexual orientation. The principal then called Young's parents about the issue, outing him without his consent in the process.

Ultimately, Young was not allowed to speak at his graduation. He did get the chance to deliver his speech after all at a fundraising event for Out Boulder, a Colorado LGBT advocacy group and on national television on The Nightly Show.

A mother in India recently placed a matrimonial ad in the paper for her adult, gay son. It might seem like it would only be a little embarrassing for 36 year old activist Harish Iyer to have his mom get involved in his love life but it's actually groundbreaking. It is thought to be the first same-sex dating ad placed in an Indian newspaper. In fact many papers refused to publish it.

Iyer told the Times of India that they've gotten a few responses so far but he plans on taking his time to decide on the right man.
