Transcript by Newsy**** BY ERIK SHUTE You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy FIFA president Sepp Blatter has an ultimatum for gays hoping to travel to Quatar in 2022: you’re invited, but don’t do anything “gay”. During a press conference on Monday, Blatter was asked about Quatar’s anti-gay policies during the World Cup -- here’s how he responded: “Then I would say that they should refrain from any sexual activities. If they want to watch a match somewhere in Qatar in 2022, I’m sure they will be admitted to such matches. I think there is too much concern for the competition that will only be done in 12 years.” (CNN) Gay rights advocates have made it clear -- the concern is very real. In the mainly Muslim country, homosexuality is more than forbidden -- it’s strictly illegal. The BBC says this is just the first of many questions Quatar will have to field while preparing for 2022. “The Gulf state will be the very first Muslim country to host the event, so fans really will find plenty that's different. Drinking alcohol in public is illegal and homosexuality is also outlawed. Blatter’s sure gay fans will be able to attend matches, but it’s a bit bizzare he tried to make light of the situation.” Blatter clarified his choice words by contradicting them a few sentences later. He suggested the Middle East will not take sides -- it’s ready to open up to different cultures. A skeptical Fox News asked its pundits to decide. HOST: “Blatter qualified his blather saying we are living in a world of freedom and said some other crap I chose to ignore. But a reporter raised a good when visiting lands that hate their glands?” COMMENTATOR: “This is ridiculous. Do they really think gay people this far out are planning their sexual activity? Maybe they have a calendar out for 2022? Ok I’m in section F6, this is where it’s all going to happen.” Others defending the Arab emirate think the criticism is too harsh. Blatter’s comments might have been inappropriate, but they weren’t outlandish. Ed Connell of the Gay Football Supporters Network told The Mirror, Blatter just needs to be educated. “While we’re working with the FA [Futbol Association] to get people to understand there is an issue with homophobia around football, Sepp Blatter is simply not getting the issue.” If fans are raising these issues 12 years prior to kickoff, just imagine the escalated debate in the days before the teams arrive. The Wall Street Journal says this boils down to the real issue on everyone’s mind. “The comment... did little to help soccer fans answer a stubborn question that has been asked again and again since the decision was announced: How did Qatar wind up beating the United States, Australia, South Korea and Japan for the 2022 World Cup?” Around the world organizations advocating the rights of gays in soccer are demanding Blatter apologize.

BY MOLLY BOLAND ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO You're watching multisource global video news analysis from Newsy There may be a new box to fill out at the doctor’s office -- The Institute of Medicine has released a report suggesting medical records indicate patients’ sexual orientation. The information would illuminate the scope of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations and to help doctors deal with health issues specific to the community. Sounds easy enough -- on the surface, Time reports. “...talking about gender or orientation with certain groups could be tricky … Teens may worry about prejudice on the part of their doctors, or may not trust that the information will be kept from their parents. Further, homosexuality remains less accepted among certain minority groups and religious communities, complicating accurate reporting.” UCLA researchers recently estimated there are 9 million people in the United States who identify as LGBT -- and say older individuals in these communities are at high risk for diabetes, hypertension, and poor mental health. Dr. Gary Gates from the UCLA School of Law says in the Daily Mail... “‘LGBT Americans still are not routinely counted. That allows legislators and policy makers to say they really don’t matter much - because if they did, we’d have this data.’ “ The Advocate’s Andrew Harmon agrees, and says research into LGBT health issues is -quote- “strikingly underdeveloped.” Finally, the director of the Center for Population Research in LGBT Health writes in The Huffington Post -- it’s about time doctors paid attention. “...the paradigm has changed -- the medical and health care communities are now focusing on the roots of so much of the stress for LGBT populations -- homophobia, prejudice, discrimination and stigma. As we tackle those we will see better mental and physical health outcomes for our community and as a result be a healthier nation.” Transcript by Newsy.

BY CHRISTIE NICKS ANCHOR CHANCE SEALES You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy. Texas OK’ed transgendered marriages with proof of sex change just two years ago, but now Republican lawmakers are working to repeal that decision. Here’s HLN with the break down. “Now the legislature is saying that was a mistake, that 2009 little rule that little law was a mistake we want to change it back, we want to clarify it to make sure that folks that are transgendered cannot marry members of the opposite sex even though their sex now is the opposite sex, so it’s kinda confusing but very very, legally very, interesting.” So why the flip-flop? One of the Republican lawmakers behind the bill, Tommy Williams, tells the Associated Press, it goes back to the Texas constitution- defining marriage as one man and one woman. That’s a point one Dallas Voice blogger says is a little ironic. “if it becomes law, it will indicate that the Texas Legislature thinks it’s perfectly fine for transgender people to marry people of the same sex. And yet, Williams and others are citing their opposition to same-sex marriage as the reason for supporting the bill. … But you can’t have it both ways...” In a 1999 Texas state appeals decision, the court said gender is assigned at birth in cases of marriage- but - in a 2009 Texas law, the state said it would recognize sex change documentation for marriage... confusing, right? William’s says his proposed legislation would simplify the mess. But in the wake of a beating of a transgender woman at a Baltimore McDonalds, A blogger for Unicorn Booty says.... “The passage of this law will only lead to homophobia and discrimination in Texas and beyond. Elected officials have a responsibility to protect and serve all of their constituents. This law will do neither.” But a commentator on conservative blog GOP USA says, the legislature is changing the law back to the way it should be. “These groups that wake up one day and start screaming that they have this right and that right that they can overturn thousands of years the institution of marriage, or morality… are dangerous and deserve a good outing. When outed you see that they have an agenda and it is not one that most people would find very appealing but rather disturbing.” With the debate headed to the Senate, a blogger for Austinist says- the legislation probably won’t go much further. “Given that the Lege is only five weeks away from [adjournment], when the session ends, both bills could well end up by the wayside.” If the legislation does make it through, some already married transgendered couples fear any legal dispute could nullify their marriage.

You have to really dig around to find out what events are going on at the AT&T Center in Austin, because you won't find them on the AT&T Center's website where they are never publicized and you usually find them after the fact (like through Jon Lebkowsky's live twitter blogging) but I'm glad I set up a google alert for "AT&T Center" and got the email notice just in time to see this terrific free film and talk by Dave Zirin. Dave Zirin, the Rachel Maddow of sports commentators, brought a free screening of his documentary film, "Not Just a Game", to the North American Society for Sport History ( #nassh) conference at the AT&T Center in Austin on Sunday, May 29.

(Image Source: WSB-TV) BY KYLIE MCGIVERN Atlanta Police have arrested one of three suspects in the videotaped beating of a 20-year-old gay man. 18-year-old Christopher Cain is one of the attackers in this video that went viral. The young men, who call themselves part of the “Jack City” gang, ambushed Brandon White and repeatedly yelled an anti-gay slur. Here’s CNN with White’s take on the attack. “I feel as though I should have justice. Because those guys didn’t feel my pain. They didn’t care whether or not I was injured. I could have died that day.” Reports say police charged Cain with aggravated assault and robbery. HLN reports this crime is more than an isolated incident. KEITH BOYKIN: “I think we have a culture in our society that says homophobia is still tolerable - whether you’re a TV commentator, whether you’re a football player...” JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL: “Look, it’s in the movies everywhere. ‘That’s so gay,’ people say it all the time.” But as the Georgia Voice reports, State Rep. Rashad Taylor (D-Atlanta) is trying to bring change. At a rally held in honor and support of White, Rashad announced his plans to introduce a state hate crimes bill -- a direct response to the attack. "We have a federal hate crimes law. But there's no law here in Georgia that says its a crime to beat a man because he is gay, no law in Georgia that says it a crime to beat someone because they're Jewish, because they are a lesbian, because they're black, because they don't look like you … We've got to get back that here in this state." Congressman and Civil Rights Activist John Lewis also spoke at the rally, which was held the same day police arrested Cain. WGCL reports... Congressman and Civil Rights Activist JOHN LEWIS: “We cannot discriminate against someone because that person happens to be straight or gay. We are all one people, we are family, we are brothers and sisters.” Police say they’ve identified two other suspects, but the men have not been arrested, nor their names released.

In an unmarked office at the end of a dirt track, veteran activist David Kato labors to repeal Uganda’s homophobic laws and liberate his fellow lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender men and women, or “kuchus.” But David’s formidable task just became much more difficult. A new “Anti-Homosexuality Bill” proposes death for HIV-positive gay men, and prison for anyone who fails to turn in a known homosexual. Inspired by American evangelicals who have christened Uganda ground zero in their war on the “homosexual agenda,” the bill awaits debate in Uganda’s Parliament. Meanwhile, local newspapers have begun outing kuchus with vicious fervor under headlines such as: “HOMO TERROR! We Name and Shame Top Gays in the City.” David, Uganda’s first openly gay man, is one of the few who dare to publicly protest state-sanctioned homophobia. Working with an idiosyncratic clan of fellow activists, David fights Uganda’s government and tabloids in the courts, on television, and at the United Nations. Because, he insists, “if we keep on hiding, they will say we’re not here.”
