  17. <description> On Friday, November 30, 2018, Seattle Counseling Service, Gay City: Seattle's LGBTQ Center, and CareTeams by Samaritan Center of Puget Sound partnered once again to present the 15th annual Stronger Together: World AIDS Day Breakfast - this year at the King Street Ballroom (Embassy Suites, 255 S. King St.).

This event was a convening of community to commemorate the local history of the AIDS pandemic; honor those who have died; appreciate those who are living with HIV/AIDS; applaud the achievements we have made together in the fight against HIV/AIDS; and make a call to action to find, serve, and support those community members who are still in need, in order to eradicate this disease.

  29. <description> WASHINGTON, DC (December 10, 2018) - Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation announced that it will honor longtime allies and LGBTQ advocates Judy and Dennis Shepard with the Upstander Award at the organization's sixth annual Time to THRIVE Conference on February 15-17 at the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim, California.
  30.  
  31. 'We are thrilled to honor Judy and Dennis Shepard with our Upstander Award for their tireless and fearless work for the LGBTQ community. For decades, they've not only been members of the HRC family but true friends,' said the HRC Foundation's Acting Senior Vice President Jay Brown. 'After the horrific murder of their son, Matthew, 20 years ago, Judy and Dennis chose to bravely rise up and confront the hate violence that plagues our country by establishing a foundation in their son's name. They have since dedicated their lives to working to create a world where no LGBTQ or other marginalized person has to live in fear.'

  41. <description> LAS CRUCES, NM (December 13, 2018) - Lambda Legal today filed a motion on behalf of a 63-year-old gay man arguing that the Social Security Administration's denial of spousal survivor's benefits to him, on the grounds that he was not married for long enough despite marrying on the very first day when he was allowed to do so, is unconstitutional. The lawsuit filed on behalf of Anthony Gonzales, who was in a 15-year committed relationship with his husband, in the US District Court for the District of New Mexico argues that the SSA's imposition of a nine-month marriage requirement for social security survivor's benefits is unconstitutional where same-sex couples were not able to be married for nine months because of discriminatory marriage laws.

  51. <description> WASHINGTON, DC - The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit heard oral arguments [on December 10] in Doe v. Trump - the first legal challenge filed in opposition to Trump's transgender military ban - brought by the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and GLBTQ Legal Advocates and Defenders (GLAD). GLAD Transgender Rights Project Director Jennifer Levi presented arguments on behalf of the plaintiffs, urging the court to keep Doe's preliminary injunction in place, which prevents implementation of Trump's transgender military ban while the case is being heard in court.
  52.  
  53. There are four lawsuits challenging the ban, and all four federal judges in these cases have issued nationwide preliminary injunctions blocking it. In issuing those orders, the courts each determined that the plaintiffs challenging the ban - including current service members, ROTC, military academy students, and enlistees - would likely prevail on their claim that the ban violates </description>

Our current Executive Director, Luis Fernando Ramirez Limon will be stepping down after two years as Executive Director and a total of 11 years with the organization. Under his ambitious leadership, Entre Hermanos has seen the largest increase in its funding, staff, and programs in our history. We thank Luis for his years of service, passion, and commitment.
  66.  
  67. Entre Hermanos will soon be hiring a new Executive Director and we are currently in the recruiting process. In the interim, our current program managers will step up to lead the organizati</description>

  87. <description> SEATTLE (December 11, 2018) - Organizers of demonstrations against the far right brought their case to Seattle City Hall on December 10, International Human Rights Day. They called on Mayor Jenny Durkan and the Seattle Police Department to stop denying the free speech and assembly rights of social justice advocates who are protesting the recruitment rallies of racist and misogynist groups.
  88.  
  89. Speakers at the news conference, organized by the December 1st Ad Hoc Coalition Against Misogyny, White Supremacy, and Anti-Semitism, called for a full investigation by the mayor's office of a 'pattern of biased treatment towards human rights defenders.'

  129. <description> NEW YORK (December 7, 2018) - GLAAD, the world's largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, today panned President Trump for nominating William Barr to be his next US attorney general. Much like his predecessor Jeff Sessions, Barr has a vicious anti-LGBTQ history [https://www.glaad.org/tap/william-barr], even suggesting that equality for LGBTQ Americans has 'led to America's decline.'
  130.  
  131. 'William Barr, who has wrongfully suggested that LGBTQ people - not Trump and his destructive policies - have harmed the United States, is the latest in a long line of replacements who President Trump has appointed to his cabinet who are just as anti-LGBTQ as their predecessors,' said Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD. 'If confirmed, there's little doubt that William Barr would continue the Trump administration's objective of erasing LGBTQ Americans from the fabric of this nation.'

  144.  
  145. A family in California is suing the Walgreens company after Jonathan Hart, a Gay black man, was shot and killed by a security guard employed by the pharmacy chain.
  146.  
  147. On December 2, Hart was accused of shoplifting by a security guard at a Hollywood Walgreens store. The encounter turned into a fight, during which the guard reportedly pulled his gun and shot Hart in the neck, killing him.
  148.  
  149. Hart was only 21 at the time of his death, and was experiencing homelessness. According to reports, the as-yet-unidentified security guard has not been arrested or charged in the killing.
  150.  
  151. Hart's family is now suing Walgreens for $525 million and calling for a boycott of the company's stores.

  165. The Trump administration has ordered scientists employed by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) to stop acquiring new human fetal tissue for experiments, according to ScienceInsider.
  166.  
  167. The new order affects two laboratories run by the agency, NIH officials say. In one case, it disrupted a study probing how the HIV virus initially colonizes human tissues.
  168.  
  169. The HIV study was being conducted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
  170.  
  171. 'Yes, we have instituted a pause of further procurements [of human fetal tissue] pending the audit/review that HHS [the federal Health and Human Services Department] is undertaking,' an NIAID spokesperson confirmed.

  181. <description> WASHINGTON, DC (December 11, 2018) - Today, US Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) outlined her opposition to Jonathan Kobes' nomination to serve on the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in a speech on the Senate floor. Sen. Murray made clear that not only does Mr. Kobes lack the qualifications for the position but that his past work with fake women's health centers - clinics that seek out women looking for information about their health care needs and reproductive rights, and then use misleading or false propaganda to scare and pressure them - is utterly disqualifying. In her speech, Sen. Murray highlighted the importance of continuing to stand up for women's health care and rights, particularly in light of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation earlier this year, and made clear she is going to keep fighting against Republican efforts to ram through President Trump's far-right ideological judges.

  200. You can tell that Macha's production of Tom Coash's play, Veils, was made with love. They took great care to cast two talented women actors who are also of appropriate ethnic background to the characters (Arab or Muslim) - Alaji and Fathiya Ritter, and hired a newly transplanted-from-California Arab director, Lia Sima Fakhouri.
  201.  
  202. They added set designer Parmida Ziaei, who created a dorm room that seamlessly transformed into a hotel room, fun college-age appropriate costuming by Sadiqua Iman, and solid sound design by Johanna Melamed and lighting by Zanna King. Projections are important in this production and were perfected by Suzi Tucker - one of the talented projection-creators in town, in case you weren't aware.

  252. Through December 30
  253.  
  254. Willa Cather's best-known novel is My Ántonia. She wrote movingly about the vast heartland of the United States plains and the joys and hardships of living in the sparsely populated and wild-weathered countryside. She wrote in a kind of spare, nature-loving way about the people who lived there and their ways of thinking and thriving.
  255.  
  256. Annie Lareau loved the book and adapted it for first production with Book-It Repertory Theatre back in 2008. It won a lot of critical praise and recognition at that time and Book-It decided to bring it back this year, with Lareau directing.
  257.  
  258. Lareau writes in the program that she long thought of the story as being about making a 'home' for oneself and this year realized its connection to the current issues around immigration and integration that are so politically potent. This is w</description>

  267.  
  268. For 40 years, the Evans family has been selling high-quality, locally-produced goods at their Tacoma store, the Pacific Northwest Shop.
  269.  
  270. In October 2017, Matt Evans - son of longtime owners Bill and Ann - set up shop in Wallingford, offering the same well-sourced art, snacks and apparel.
  271.  
  272. 'I feel like Seattle doesn't have a shop quite like this,' Evans said. 'You have touristy shops, but you don't really have a store where you can buy great gifts made locally for friends and family.'
  273.  
  274. Evans was raised in Tacoma, in the back of his dad's shop. The office there will always be 'Dad's office,' he said. Both Bill and Ann are still alive and well, and remain passionate about their business.
  275.  
  276. When Evans and his husband moved to Seattle, they looked at the U-District, Capitol Hill, Ravenna and even Burien. Ultimately, Wallingford proved too tempting to pass up.
