People in Massachusetts, USA, will be voting on whether to repeal a nondiscrimination law in November. The vote is on whether to repeal a 2016 law which prohibits discrimination in areas of public access on the basis of gender identity. It will be the third question on the ballot. So, a ‘Yes On 3’ campaign is encouraging residents to protect transgender rights when they go to the polls.

Opponents of the non-discrimination law, Senate Bill 2407, gathered enough signatures for a state-wide referendum. The ballot will take place alongside upcoming midterm elections on 6 November. A No vote would repeal the law, while a Yes vote would preserve it and continue protecting people who are not cisgender in Massachusetts.

A group encouraging a No vote, to ‘keep MA safe’, released a transphobic advertisement last month. One of the biggest myths surrounding bathroom laws is that sexual predators will take advantage of laws protecting trans people. In fact, it’s trans people who face disproportionately high amounts of discrimination, harassment, and violence.

Life at a sleepy high school in Pampanga, rife with unethical and oppressive instructors, changes with the arrival of interracial pretty boy Magnus Snyder.

This is particularly true for top scholar Felix. When he’s enlisted to help the new student with his schoolwork, the quiet Felix is drawn out of his loner shell and into the wild ways of Magnus and his devilish younger brother Maxim. As Felix’s closeted attraction to Magnus grows, he becomes increasingly enmeshed in the Snyder family’s dark tensions, which involve their hard-partying mother. Despite uneven acting and a tendency toward heavy-handedness, the film demonstrates admirable attunement to the introverted Felix as he hurtles down a coming-of-age trajectory with seemingly no way out other than disaster.
