San Francisco gets first woman African American mayor 15.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
San Francisco is to get its first female black mayor after a knife-edge election, with the African American population in decline in the famously liberal Californian city. London Breed campaigned on her modest upbringing and a pledge to address the overwhelmingly white and Hispanic city's housing crisis, winning with just over 50 percent of the vote. "No matter where you come from, no matter what you decide to do in life, you can do anything you want to do," the 43-year-old, who will be the only female mayor in the 15 largest US cities, said. "Never let your circumstances determine your outcome in life." Breed, formerly president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, ran on 5 June but the result was delayed a week because of the tight count. Her rival Mark Leno, who would have been San Francisco's first openly gay mayor, conceded on Wednesday. "She's a remarkable young woman. She's going to do a very fine job and we wish her the best. Her success is San Francisco's success," he said. Famously ...

'Stranger Things' star Millie Bobby Brown quits Twitter after becoming homophobic meme 14.6.2018 DNA: Top News
Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is the latest star to quit social media platform after being harassed by online trolls. Just a week ago, Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Kelly Marie Tran was bullied off Instagram by the trolls who did not like her role in the second instalment of the rebooted franchise. This time, the 14-year-old teen star was chased off Twitter when a barrage of homophobic memes was posted with her images on. The meme-generators took Brown's selfies and added homophobic statements and slurs. According to a report in Variety, it is unclear what prompted this sudden outburst but several Twitter users are claiming that the origin lies in an inside joke among LGBT tweeters. This is where irony dies. Millie Bobby Brown is a public supporter of GLAAD's (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Together movement. She has voiced her political opinions, showed support for Parkland shooting survivors. Brown’s secondary, anti-bullying Twitter account, @Milliestopshate is still ...

Thirteen members of the transgender community will be contesting the July 25 elections on various seats across Pakistan, the All Pakistan Transgender Election Network (Apten) said on Wednesday. It said two transgender leaders - Nayab Ali and Lubna Lal - will contest on Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Gulalai (PTI-G) tickets, while the remaining 11 candidates will run as independents, Dawn reported. However, they said, at least two transgender people - one in Peshawar and another in Haripur - were unable to submit nomination papers because they were beaten up and harassed after their intentions to contest elections became public knowledge.

A lesbian couple allegedly committed suicide after throwing a three-year-old child of one of them in the Sabarmati river in Ahmedabad on Monday, the police said. The women also scribbled a suicide note along the riverfront's concrete walkway near Ellisbridge where they jumped into the water body, an official at the Sabarmati Riverfront (West) police station said. They purportedly mentioned in the suicide note that they had "distanced themselves from the world so they could unite, but the world did not let them live," he said. "The two women committed suicide due to complications arising out of their lesbian relationship," the official said. One of them, who was married to a man and had a three-year-old daughter, first threw the child into the river before jumping along with the other woman into the water body by tying themselves with a 'dupatta', he said. The deceased were identified as Asha Thakor (30), Bhavna Thakor (28) and Megha (3). The official said that both the women worked at the same private ...
