Y’all know this story … on December 27, 2014, Leelah Alcorn, a 17 year old transgender youth wrote posted a suicide note on Tumblr and then walked in front of a semi-truck on a busy highway.
Leelah explained how her parents had forced her to attend conversion therapy, pulled her out of school and isolated her in an attempt to change her gender identity and so a petition has been created to enact Leelah’s Law to Ban All LGBTQ+ Conversion Therapy.
If the petition receives 100,000 signatures within the first 30 days, the White House will respond. Right now, the petition has 93,891 signatures, and needs 6,109 more to qualify by February 2. While it won't guarantee a bill or a law, greater awareness means greater possibility for action.

Now on to a more fabulous note … Diana Ross will be taking up residency in Las Vegas.
No, Diva ain’t living there, but she will be performing at the Venetian for nine days in April, and could make it a permanent thing.
I need to get my ass to Vegas …. Maybe she’ll ask me to dance with her again.
