Politicians and Laws That Don’t Suck
+ Delaware just banned health insurance discrimination against trans folks. They’re now the fifteenth state with a policy like this in place.
State Insurance Commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart on Wednesday released the bulletin that announced the new policy. It prohibits “the denial, cancellation, termination, limitation, refusal to issue or renew, or restriction, of insurance coverage or benefits thereunder because of a person’s gender identity or transgender status, or because the person is undergoing gender transition.”
“All Delawareans should have access to quality health care, regardless of their gender identity,” said Stewart in a press release on the state’s website. “The Insurance Department will be vigilant in making sure all insurers comply with the law.”
+ Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders both came out swinging against NC’s no good, terrible HB2 because we as Democrats are #blessed to choose between two candidates who see LGBT folks and see fellow human beings.
It's time to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. This law has no place in America. https://t.co/uINi5KpsZ6

+ Argentina just became the third Latin American country to join the Global Equity Fund, a US-led initiative promoting LGBT rights worldwide.
For Once, A Mansplain I Can Believe In
Jimmy Kimmel tried to mansplain running for president to Hillary Clinton, and I think in the process he learned a lot. Also, I giggled like a schoolgirl the whole time, so.
Get Your Gay Ass to Church, Specifically This One
In the front row of an historic church service, Kim Davis sang a hymn entitled “Holy, Holy, Holy,wp_postsnot as an outcast, but as a deacon.
No one was an outcast at the service, which launched New Haven’s first African-American gay-and-lesbian-oriented congregation.
That was the point.
It was a miracle the roof remained in place at Betsy Ross School’s century-old restored former St. Peter’s parish hall, one of New Haven’s magical spaces, by the time Davis and more than 100 others finished singing, shouting praise, and dancing in the aisles Sunday.
