To all LGBTs: It's good that so many are keeping up with the news.  It's a good thing. However, breitbart.com  is not a newsworthy, reliable source.  The best thing to do is to contact the WHO (World Health Organization) directly, followed by questions to a trusted, reliable, knowledgeable physician.
