Speaking of Catholic schools, a lesbian teacher who was fired for getting artificial insemination while employed at the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati has won $170,000 in an anti-discrimination lawsuit.
The first trailer for Orange is the New Black is here! It looks great but entirely different from the memoir it is based on.

Put simply, Charice, are you a lesbian?"
"I have a chance to do all of this internationally," she responded. "[...] But I chose this place because I have a deep sense of gratitude to the Filipinos. Because I felt that I wanted it to be them, for them to learn what I am and who I am. »
