  19. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray got a new endorsement in his bid for re-election and a new opponent, both on March 10.
  20.  
  21. Murray was endorsed by Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, perhaps his highest-profile backer to date.
  22.  
  23. 'I am proud to support Mayor Murray's campaign for re-election,' Ferguson said in a statement.
  24.  
  25. 'With the Trump administration threatening our immigrant and refugee families and our transgender students, it is critical that we have local leaders in our cities like Mayor Murray. He has shown he will not be intimidated by the administration's tactics. Just as Mayor Murray stands with the people of Seattle, I stand with him.'
  26.  
  27. Other big names who have endorsed Murray include former Gov. Christine Gregoire and former Labor Secretary and current DNC Chair Tom Perez.

  39. The Seattle City Council unanimously passed a resolution at its March 13 meeting, calling on Congress to pass the Equality Act.
  40.  
  41. The resolution adopted by the City Council states, 'We find that federal laws that fully prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or expression are essential to furthering the well-being of the residents of and visitors to Seattle.'
  42.  
  43. The proposed Equality Act would add protections for sexual orientation and gender identity to federal civil rights laws.
  44.  
  45. Currently, individual states are able to deny access to housing, employment, education, public accommodations, and more because of a resident's sexual orientation or gender identity. While Washington state law protects LGBT rights, other states do not.
  46.  
  47. The Equality Act would set a national standard that prohibits discrimination under the law based on gender identity or expression.</description>

  57. A three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act does not protect Lesbian and Gay employees.
  58.  
  59. The vote in the March 10 decision was 2-1.
  60.  
  61. The original lawsuit was brought by Lambda Legal on behalf of Jameka Evans against her former employer, Georgia Regional Hospital. Evans charged that she was discriminated against and forced out of her job because she is Lesbian and did not conform to gender norms in her appearance and demeanor.
  62.  
  63. After a US district judge dismissed Evans' lawsuit, Lambda Legal appealed to the 11th Circuit, arguing that sexual orientation discrimination is a form of sex discrimination and therefore illegal under Title VII.
  64.  
  65. Lambda Legal has a similar suit pending in the 7th Circuit. Both cases depend on suits brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), in which the agency argues</description>

  77. The Girl Guides of Canada - their version of Girl Scouts - announced March 13 that they will no longer take trips to the United States.
  78.  
  79. The organization said it was worried about Donald Trump's travel ban and the safety of some of its members.
  80.  
  81. 'While the United States is a frequent destination for guiding trips, the ability of all our members to equally enter this country is currently uncertain,' the Girl Guides said a statement.
  82.  
  83. 'It also has to do with safety,' Sarah Kiriliuk, the organization's national manager of marketing and communication, explained. 'We want to make sure that if our girls are traveling that they are not going to be in a risky or unsafe situation...We can't leave a girl behind...

  95. Over the last few weeks I've been interviewed, filmed, taped and recorded numerous times. I've also been going through files - or, more like, boxes of papers and objects that haven't seen the light of day or artificial light literally for decades - for a project I'm involved with.
  96.  
  97. This process, and it's one I strongly suggest to all who have collected anything for a long period of time, often brings delightful surprises. You find pieces that explain parts of your life and recall people you've interacted with. Even writings from people that are no longer with us or that you no longer associate with are, to say the least, revealing.
  98.  
  99. It also answers questions. There's a photo of me at a demonstration next to my friend Doug Carver that's on the cover of the book Gay Pride: Photographs from Stonewall to Today. I've always wondered which demonstration that was taken at, since that first year after S</description>

  109. The new Republican health care plan - dubbed Trumpcare by opponents - would wipe out all the gains made by Washington residents under the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or Obamacare), a new study found.
  110.  
  111. The study, by the State Insurance Commissioner's office and the Department of Social and Health Services, was unveiled March 15 by Gov. Jay Inslee and State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler.
  112.  
  113. 'It is a disaster for Washington,' Inslee said in a teleconference briefing. The governor said he is writing to the state's congressional delegation, asking lawmakers to 'blow the whistle on this train wreck.'
  114.  
  115. Under the ACA, 600,000 lower-income Washingtonians have gained coverage through Medicaid expansion, 80% of them in working families. An additional 190,000 enrolled this year in qualified health plans through the state's Healthplanfinder site.

  128.  
  129. Washington's US Sen. Patty Murray has reintroduced the Healthy Families Act, legislation that would allow workers to accumulate paid sick days.
  130.  
  131. Although Seattle passed a paid sick days ordinance in 2012, and Washington state followed suit with I-1433 last year, some 41 million workers across the country still lack paid sick leave and therefore are forced to take time off or risk their jobs when they or family members are ill.
  132.  
  133. Even when workers have personal sick days, those might not cover the times when a child is ill and needs to stay home from school. That forces many parents to choose between caring for their family or risking their livelihood.
  134.  
  135. 'It is unacceptable that 41 million people across the country have to take time off - or risk losing their job - if they catch the flu, if their child is sick, or if they have to take care of a sick parent,' Murray said in a statement. </description></item>

  142. <description> WASHINGTON, DC - Rep. Pramila Jayapal, vice ranking member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement in response to President Trump's budget proposal, which slashes $54 billion in investments important to working families, communities, and public safety:
  143.  
  144. 'The Trump budget proposal is a real punch in the gut to the American people. It makes abundantly clear that every critical domestic program important to working families is on the chopping block.
  145.  
  146. 'The $54 billion in proposed cuts would put the health, safety, and security of our communities at risk, as well as seize innovation that powers job growth and economic opportunity.
  147.  
  148. 'Our nation's budget represents our moral values and our commitment to the future of our country. The Trump budget is a clear betrayal of those values. No lawmaker, Democrat or Republican, can say they support their constituents and vote for this proposal.'

  160. Donald Trump's State Department will send the leader of an anti-LGBT hate group to the United Nations as one of the US delegates to the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).
  161.  
  162. Austin Ruse, boss of the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-FAM), will be one of the US representatives, the State Department said on March 13. C-FAM is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
  163.  
  164. The organization is a member of the World Congress of Families, the coalition working with the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and others to export anti-LGBT hatred to foreign countries.
  165.  
  166. Ruse was fired by the American Family Association - itself considered a hate group by SPLC - last year after a guest-hosting spot on its radio network, during which he declared that liberal university officials 'should all be taken out and shot.' Ruse also claimed that a Vatican priest offered hi</description>

Greyson is a calm, sweet-natured boy who also has a playful side. He likes to chase string toys or bat around balls of wadded-up paper. He is currently cozied up at PetSmart in Bellevue, a Seattle Humane satellite location. Greyson would love to be the only kitty in his new home so he can be loved by his new best friends with all the attention he deserves. Come find him at PetSmart in Bellevue today and welcome him home - you'll be glad you did!

All of our cats have been tested for Feline Leukemia/FIV and go home with a certificate for an examination by a King County veterinarian and their very own identification tag and collar.

  199. Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC) takes the stage at McCaw Hall with Born this Way on April 1 at 8pm and April 2 at 2pm in an inspiring and activist showcase of solidarity towards all LGBTQ youth and individuals. In this heated political climate, with anti-Trans* legislation proliferating on a regular basis, Artistic Director Paul Caldwell is bringing forth a program that celebrates the unique identities of all of us. His artistic inspiration for the concert comes from Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' lyrics: 'there's nothing wrong with loving who you are!' Singers and audience members rejoice in the stories, challenges, and dreams of a diverse generation of LGBTQ youth. This innovative multimedia concert features a world premiere composition from Latina Transgender composer, Mari Esabel Valverde, as well as pop favorites from Gaga, Pink, Cyndi Lauper, and Rufus Wainwright.

  211. March 11
  212.  
  213. The Paramount - Seattle Theatre Group's 1928 movie palace of lavish design - was the perfect setting for the venerable Dance Theatre of Harlem. The gold decorations and scarlet carpet, ornamental chandeliers and winding staircases framed DTH's intricate program of classic and modern choreography with appropriate style and elegance. The packed audience was one of the most diverse groups of Seattleites you can imagine - young, old, every gender, every race - and all excited. Entire classes of students lined up in front of the stage, in the lobby, and on the sweeping staircase to have their pictures taken together - testament to the effort DTH makes to connect with the community in general and young people in particular as they tour the nation.

  248.  
  249. A 'yankee pickney' is translated, in this solo show by Jéhan Òsanyìn, as 'Americanized child.' Òsanyìn occasionally translates Jamaican patois to help the audience understand. Yankee Pickney is performing at Theater Schmeater, and it is a brisk 70-minute heart-opening walk through Òsanyìn's life.
  250.  
  251. Solo autobiographical productions are hard to write about because you should gain the information about the story as you watch and not have someone tell you all the 'spoilers' in a review. Òsanyìn's story is unique and interesting. You are entirely encouraged to attend and hear her story.
  252.

  266. Centerstage Theatre proudly presents the world premiere of Squatch! The Musical by Katherine Jett. When sightings of Sasquatch stir up a local town, a group of 8-11 year old aspiring crypto-zoologists, scientists, and cynics resolve to find the elusive creature. Embarking on a journey of discovery, they learn things aren't always as they appear, and even the smallest effort can have a lasting impact on the world around us. Squatch! The Musical is like The Goonies ... plus Sandlot ... plus song and dance. It's a hilarious adventure for the whole family.
  267.  
  268. Squatch! The Musical is written by local actor and playwright, Katherine Jett. Jett has most recently been seen at Centerstage Theatre in For All That and Sleeping Beauty. Squatch! The Musical is directed by Sara Porkalob. While this is Sara Porkalob's first show at Center</description>
