Eugenics researcher - J. Michael Bailey facts
This page is set up to inform potential research subjects about the kinds of "science" conducted by J. Michael Bailey and his research group.
Bailey’s book, The Man Who Would Be Queen, has been widely condemned as pseudoscientific and based on eugenics. Bailey researches homosexuality as if it's a disease, and looks for a cause as if it is a genetic mutation (a "gay gene") or a pathogen/environmental factor that people can catch (a "gay germ").
U.S.: Victory for HIV Prevention in California
Advocates for HIV prevention scored a major victory in California this week when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation permitting the sale of sterile syringes without a prescription. Human Rights Watch has supported these efforts since the publication of its 2003 report on syringe access in California, “Injecting Reason: Human Rights and HIV Prevention for Injection Drug Users.”
UPDATES ON RIO DE JANEIRO AND GUAYAQUIL ACTION ALERTS
RIO DE JANEIRO UPDATE
On September 17, 2004, about 100 activists joined members of the Parliamentary Front for Freedom of Sexual Expression (a coalition of MPs holding liberal views on sexual rights) for an special session of the Rio de Janeiro State Legislature to discuss all proposals related to "homosexuality" that are currently being processed there, including the one on funding for conversion therapies (717/03).
Distinguished professors and researchers from different Rio de Janeiro universities submitted a petition with 450 signatures against Proposal 717/03.
Paulo Rogério Baía, Under Secretary for Individual and Collective Rights, told the media that the Rio government has received "innumerous" letters from international organizations concerned about the proposal.
The Parliamentary Front will introduce next week a proposal to allow same-sex couples to register as "dependents" in health plans.
