THE AFL (Australian-rules Football League) has blocked transgender footballer, Hannah Mouncey, from entering this year’s NAB AFL Women’s Draft, according to Marc McGowan of the AFL newsite, AFL.com.au.

Indonesia’s parliament is considering national legislation that would ban lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender content from TV screens by the end of the year.

The Draft Bill would ban LGBT content and ads, and comes amid police raids on ‘gay spas’. The UN has condemned gay raids in Indonesia, and Egypt, and the bill is not really understandable, as Transgender characters, for instance, are found in traditional Indonesian culture. Continue Reading »

Listen: Prime – Satellite

This Monday morning, we bring you another great track from Prime, whom we featured in our July monthly edition of EILE Magazine. This multi-ethnic pop singer-songwriter is truly a citizen of the world, who was raised in New York City, and this is reflected in his music, which is an unusual mix of energetic beats, electronic sounds, and soft ballad-style vocals. This morning’s track is called Satellite, and we hope you enjoy it, in spite of the stormy weather!
