End LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars.

Update: The Duggars have thrown massive amounts of money to repeal this law so business owners and land lords can evict and fire people solely over gender idenity and sexual orientation!  They need to be taken off the air!  Michelle Duggar of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting is warning Fayetteville residents that transgender people are child predators and that the law will somehow protect that predatory behavior.  Her recorded robocall says: "Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children."  "The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men – yes I said men – to use womens and girls restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls. " Duggar words reek of ignroance and fear mongering. Just because someone is transgendered doesn't mean they are a child predator or a rapist. The claim that this ordinance would provide predators with access to women's restrooms in order to assault or leer at girls or women is nothing more than fear-mongering and spreading ignornace and hatred.  Transgender people — who are far more likely to be the victims of harassment and violence if forced to use a bathroom that is inconsistent with their gender identity or expression— deserve to have the ability to use the bathroom in peace and safety. Josh Duggar has also taken a position at the so called "Family Research Council". The Family Research Center is such a hate-filled, anti-gay organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2010 labeled it a “hate group” for its “dissemination of false and demonizing propaganda about gays and lesbians.” The Learning Channel & Discovery Networks need to seperate themselves from this bigotry and put an end to the Duggar's show.

Petitioning TLC's "Cake Boss"

Publicly apologize to the transgendered community.

On June 11th, 2012 - TLC aired an episode of their hit show "Cake Boss". The episode was named, "Bar Mitzvah, Beads & Oh Baby!" featuring special guest, Carmen Carrera. Carmen is best known from the show "RuPaul's Drag Race" on Logo and has since become an activist for the Transgendered community (shortly announcing her transition after a special episode of "What Would You Do?" on ABC). In the "What Would You Do" episode, Carmen speaks out about transgendered people and the struggles they encounter on a daily basis.  She is also appearing at the San Fransisco Pride Parade as the Grand Marshall due to her work as an activist for the LGBT community. The plot of the episode was to use Carmen to lure one of the bakery's employees to flirt with her as a prank. Before filming, Carmen educated producers on what terms to use and what phrases would not be offensive, i.e. "Carmen was BORN male" or "Carmen is a transgendered woman". Producers AGREED to respect her wishes, however, when the show aired it was a blatant "THAT'S A MAN" moment - very reminiscent of (trashy) shows like Jerry Springer or Maury. Carmen's intent was to promote acceptance of trans women and make it ok to flirt or be attracted to someone who has changed his/her gender. This type of ignorance should not be allowed. There are people around the world who kill themselves because of gender identity disorder. There are people who are bullied, tormented and feel indifferent every single day. This episode brought Carmen Carrera to tears because she does NOT want any part of a program that promotes such ignorance and miseducation. Please, fight for the rights and the RESPECT of PEOPLE. Not just the trans community but for everyone, equally.

Young Hollywood Against Georgia Heartbeat Bill

A women’s right to choose is under attack – and we must defend it. Last week, as part of a nationwide push to limit women’s reproductive rights, Georgia’s House of Representatives passed 6-week ‘fetal heartbeat’ bill that bans most abortions. The bill, titled HB481, or the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, would bar women from terminating their pregnancies after a fetal heartbeat is first detected, which can be as early as around the six-week mark. That is a point prior to which most women are even aware they are pregnant. If signed into law, this legislation would be one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the U.S. and an affront to a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion. Right now, we are waiting to see if Georgia’s Governor Brian Kemp will sign this attack on the Constitution into law. Given his history on reproductive rights, it’s all too likely it will happen. Hollywood is helping Georgia thrive, bringing production and dollars to a place where women are day by day losing their control over their own bodies. According to the MPAA, the film and TV industry is responsible for more than 92,100 jobs and nearly $4.6 billion in total wages in Georgia, including indirect jobs and wages. We ask that those considering to bring their productions to the state boycott Georgia until legislation changes. The following studios and production companies are currently shooting in Georgia. We ask the community, and them in particular to donate to Planned Parenthood, specifically Georgia Planned Parenthood Southeast. This will fund the clinics in Georgia, making reproductive health accessible, and will contribute to their legal fight against HB481 in the courts should it is signed into law: Stranger Things, 7 Little Johnstons, Conjuring 3, Council of Dads, Creepshow, Deputy, (Future) Cult Classic, Insatiable, Labour of Love, Power Star Live, Reckoning, Say Yes to the Dress, The Baker and the Beauty, The Heart of Life, The Liberator, The Outsider, The Real World, Legacies, Star, Dynasty, MacGyver, Doom Patrol, Bad Boys For Life, The Act, Pudget Sound, Ambitions, The Glorias: A Life on the Road, Zombieland 2, Lodge 49, Dish Nation, Iyanla: Fix My Life Season 6,  Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Live to Tell, Mama June, The Aquarium, Stargirl, Intolerable with Nancy Grace, Jumanji 3, Power Star Life, Reckoning, The Liberator, Star Crossed, Lost and Found, Cipher, Greenleaf, Untitled Marsha Blackstone Project. This donation means that your production stands by their female cast and crew, even if they are shooting in a place that endangers their constitutional rights. If the bill passes, it will be one step closer to shutting the Planned Parenthood doors, which more people from your production have walked through in a time of need than you could imagine. We are also adding our names to the list of people urging Brian Kemp to NOT sign the HB481 bill into law. Spearheaded by Alyssa Milano, include Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer, Gabrielle Union, Ben Stiller, Don Cheadle, Mia Farrow, Rosie O’Donnell, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Essence Atkins, Uzo Aduba, Christina Applegate, Sean Penn, Atlanta native David Cross, Colin Hanks, Bradley Whitford and Amber Tamblyn, we are joining them in the fight to block this bill.  Many other Young Hollywood Organizations already support this petition, please join us in adding your name to the list and donating whatever you can to help keep Planned Parenthood running. Once you've signed your name, please consider donating any amount you can here!
