Today’s LGBTiQ News Headlines from Pinksixty.com

A new report from Amnesty International says anti-gay rhetoric from Moscow is fuelling a rise in hostility towards LGBT people in other Russian Federation countries. Cultural events are banned and LGBT activists shunned by other human rights groups, face police harassment.

Vancouver Pride has said it stands by its decision to ban uniformed police from next year’s parade. Executive director Andrea Arnot said police have failed to respond to requests to do more work with marginalised groups.

Michael Yamashita has purchased San Francisco’s oldest LGBT newspaper, the ‘Bay Area Reporter’. Yamashita, who publishes the paper now owns an 80% share.

The man behind comedy Mrs Brown’s Boys has revealed that he turned down a lucrative licensing deal with Russia over his character’s gay son. Russian censors wanted Rory Brown written out entirely, but Brendan O’Carroll refused.

And finally, the first trailer for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again was released yesterday, featuring a very Lady Gaga-looking Cher. Amanda Seyfried returns as Sophie, but her mother, played by Meryl Streep is not there, feeding speculation that she’s been killed off.
