WOGPNews: Just thought to share the ESPN love/hate feedback from the Wednesday's ESPY Awards where Caitlyn Jenner formally known as Bruce accepted the 2015 Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Here is Jenner's speech:
WOGP Staff - Here you will see that at a White House event attended by many in the lgbt community alongside President Obama and his VP Joe Biden on Wednesday was abruptly heckled by a trans women activist by the name of Jennicet Gutierrez from the Latino community. The President was ever so quickly to respond and say to the heckler "This Is My House". (More reading + (video) after the Jump.)
WOGP Staff - Meet Aydian Dowling and Shane Ortega who are both competing to be one of the Men's Health 'The Ultimate Guy Search'.
The difference with both Aydian and Shane is that both are were born women but in their own right are actually transgender men and this is what diversity means in a heterosexual world when competing for coveted competition of great expectations.
This competition will cause smirk on those conservative christian faces if suddenly one of these two gorgeous men actually wins this health style comp.
Aydian Dowling who has been the feature for most part of this competition is in the lead overall with a lead of 30,357 vote count against the 2nd place competitor. (Read more of their bio's after the Jump)
We at WOGP are really happy to see that the Trans community are getting an actual notice from the mainstream media outlets like BuzzFeed. We also think its important to know that anyone who is Trans are very welcome in our community as we use the acronyms LGBTQ wisely and spread the word around that everyone is included in our society among friends, family and most definitely our allies for our global rights as we are all humans at the end of the day.

Last year Texas state senator Donna Campbell (R) introduced a measure that would allow business owners and services to refuse service to the LGBTQ customers if doing so would violate their religious beliefs.
The Republican senator has full support from the anti-gay group 'Family Values' and now a new political religious group by the name of 'Plano Citizens United' as the group is based on 3 pastors I can see in video I watched.
The pastors identified are Pastor Charles Flowers from the Faith Outreach INTL (pictured), which is in San Antonio TX, Pastor David Welch from the Houston Area Pastor Council, Pastor Jeremy Flanagan from the Pathway Baptist Church and Mark Gonzales from the National Black Robe Regiment.
The Plano Citizens United political religious group was set up on the 2nd January to voice for their religious freedom and oppose anything against their fundamentalist religious views especially when it comes down to discrimination against the LGBTQ community.
The pastors mentioned are basically saying that especially Pastor Charles Flowers who actually denounces the comparison between LGBT Rights to Civil Rights era. Their main cause for this petition is
to Repeal the Amendment to 2-11 allowing males who perceive themselves to be female (and vice versa) to go into women's' restrooms & locker rooms in businesses with more than 15 employees.
