Tokyo highlights LGBTQ rights before Olympics with Pride House

first_imgIt is traditional for most nations competing at the Olympics to have a hospitality ‘house’, where they promote their country and hold parties for winning athletes.Gon Matsunaka, the head of Good Ageing Yells, one of the organizations supporting the project, said Japan lags behind many other developed nations when it comes to LGBTQ rights.”Many people might think that Japan is a human rights defender, but actually there are no laws to protect LGBTQ people,” Matsunaka told Reuters via email.”Society is filled with prejudice, discrimination and harassment towards LGBTQ community.” Tokyo will open Pride House, Japan’s first permanent such center, next month to raise awareness of LGBTQ rights before and during the rearranged Olympic Games in 2021.Although there have been similar initiatives before previous Games, organizers said Pride House Tokyo, which will open its doors on International Coming Out Day on October 11, is the first to get official International Olympic Committee backing.”Pride House Tokyo aims to educate the world and also Japan of the difficulties the LGBTQ community has playing and enjoying sports … while helping create a safe space for the community too,” Pride House Tokyo said in a statement on Monday. “While we have to change the sports arena, we also hope Pride House Legacy can help change society as a whole as well.”Gay marriage is illegal in Japan and although about two dozen cities, towns and wards issue same-sex partnership certificates, they lack legal standing and prejudice persists.Fumino Sugiyama, a former fencer for the Japanese national team who now identifies as a man, said little had changed in 15 years since retiring from professional sport.”Even now looking around, there are few LGBTQ athletes that live their lives openly and that is the reality here in Japan,” Sugiyama told a news briefing to launch Pride House Tokyo.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Wildcats’ Reggie Howard grabs interception, is begged not to curse on camera, curses anyway

first_imgBIG MAN INTERCEPTIONS>>>>>>>📺 @espn🖥— XFL (@xfl2020) March 9, 2020ESPN sideline reporter Molly McGrath caught up with Howard soon after the play, and she had one specific request: keep the language clean.  Reggie Howard with another memorable sideline interview. He wasn’t listening to Molly tho about the cursing. Lmaooooo #XFL— Renato (@RPMSports18) March 9, 2020″Please no cursing,” Molly McGrath urges. “Please no cursing.” (It seemed like more of a prayer for herself than it was a request, actually.)After Howard mimics a bleeping sound, he answers McGrath’s question — and doesn’t follow her instructions at all. Judging by the shocked look on McGrath’s face, her quick exit of and the censoring of Howard’s answer, it’s safe to say that the big man let a few profanties rip in the short-lived interview.Let’s take a guess at what Howard said here: “Stacy forever! That’s her, serious!” (Maybe he’s a fan of Stacy’s Pita Chips? Or “Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne?)”Stetson fever! Love horses!””Seven figures! That’s happiness!”On a serious note, the access that reporters have had during this season of the XFL has been something refreshing for football, but it hasn’t been without its faults; While the emotion from the players, often pure and unadultered, is greatly appreciated for the viewer, it can really put reporters in tough spots. Generally, those reporters have done a really good job, with McGrath an example of that professionalism.It’s one thing to catch a coach at the end of a half, who are usually measured in their words and give the viewer nothing. But speaking with players after big plays — good or bad — can lend those situations to viral moments. No exception. Still, this is clean, family programming, dag gummit! Reggie Howard is no good at following directions, apparently.The 6-3, 290-pound D-lineman hasn’t been shy to fun sideline conversations this season, with Sunday’s Wildcats vs. Vipers matchup no exception to that. Howard picked off Tampa Bay QB Taylor Cornelius and was clearly overcome with emotion. last_img read more

Brown hits triple-double at Armon Gilliam Camp

first_imgCOACHING STAFF SET TO GO WITH GUEST STARS, MYRON BROWN, OF THE MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES, AND GERALD WARRICK, OF THE HARLEM WIZARDS.To be honest, it wasn’t the same way he served up triple doubles to the teams that invaded Morrow Field House at Slippery Rock University that had a much different defensive game plan in mind…but to no avail.Some of you are too young to know, some of you are on the edge and kind of remember, many of you were like me and had the pleasure of seeing the one-man wrecking crew take flight in route to becoming the Rock’s greatest, all-time player. And yes, there have been some great ones.CAMP DIRECTOR COACH JAY LATIMER ARRIVES IN STYLE!The likes of Payton Tomlin, Jeff Lake, Mark Balbac, Larry Thompson, just to name a few. But none of them went on to become the conference all time leading scorer, university all time scorer, college All-American and Hall of Fame inductee as “Flyin’” Myron Brown did!How, you ask, does this tie into the 40th Annual Armon The Hammer “Hard Work” Basketball Camp?  Well I’ll tell you. In his early days, Myron Brown was that camper. Obvious talent. Unlimited energy and an infectious smile.last_img read more

Greening The Holidays

first_imgFacebook58Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Solid WasteWe all know the holidays are about family and spending time with loved ones. Sometimes though, it’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture amidst the holiday shopping scramble, hosting relatives from near and far, and the desire to please even the most Grinch-like of guests. Added to all of the holiday stress is the fact that Americans throw away 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day than they do during any other time of the year. The added food waste, shopping bags, packaging, wrapping paper and decorations add up to an additional 1 million tons of waste each week. That’s a lot of trash. There is another way.Give the gift of an experience, such as tickets or a season pass to a local theater. Photo courtesy Karen Crooks.Consider doing something a little different for the holidays this year by going green with these alternative gift ideas.
