What Kind Of Organization is PRIDDAHO???

Priddaho is a non Profit Organization. We are regestered with the sate as a 501C 3 in the public eye we are seen as a Public Charitie

When you think of a "nonprofit" what do you think of? Most likely, you think of a group making a difference in your community. Maybe you are thinking of a large organization, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters or Make-a-Wish, or maybe you think about a local animal shelter or

Nonprofits by Type community theatre. 

These are groups that are tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) as "public charities" because they are formed to provide "public benefit." Community foundations are also part of this group (and so are private foundations, although tax rules treat them a bit differently than public charities.)

It's MY​ RIGHT TO LOVE

Gay Marrage & Beyond


In 1993, the highest court in Hawaii ruled that a ban on gay marriage may go against the state’s constitution. State voters disagreed, however, and in 1998 passed a law banning same-sex marriage.

Federal lawmakers also disagreed, and Congress passed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which Clinton signed into law in 1996. The law prevented the government from granting federal marriage benefits to same-sex couples, and allowed states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriage certificates from other states.

Though marriage rights backtracked, gay rights advocates scored other victories. In 1994, a new anti-hate-crime law allowed judges to impose harsher sentences if a crime was motivated by a victim’s sexual orientation.

On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is a right protected by the US Constitution in all 50 states. Prior to their decision, same-sex marriage was already legal in 37 states and Washington DC, but was banned in the remaining 13. US public opinion has shifted significantly over the years, from 27% approval of gay marriage in 1996 to 60% in 2015, the year it became legal throughout the United States, to 67% in 2018.

The Matthew Shepard Act

In 2003, gay rights proponents had another bit of happy news: the U.S. Supreme Court, in Lawrence v. Texas, struck down the state’s anti-sodomy law. The landmark ruling effectively decriminalized homosexual relations nationwide.

And in 2009, President Barack Obama signed into law a new hate crime act. Commonly known as the Matthew Shepard Act, the new law extended the reach of the 1994 hate crime law.

The act was a response to the 1998 murder of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard, who was pistol-whipped, tortured, tied to a fence, and left to die. The murder was thought to be driven by Shepard’s perceived homosexuality.

In 2011, President Obama fulfilled a campaign promise to repeal DADT; by that time, more than 12,000 officers had been discharged from the military under DADT for refusing to hide their sexuality.

A couple of years later, the Supreme Court ruled against Section 3 of DOMA, which allowed the government to deny federal benefits to married same-sex couples. DOMA soon become powerless, when in 2015 the Supreme Court ruled that states cannot ban same-sex marriage, making gay marriage legal throughout the country.

Transgender Rights

One day after that landmark 2015 ruling, the Boy Scouts of America lifted its ban against openly gay leaders and employees. And in 2017, it reversed a century-old ban against transgender boys, finally catching up with the Girl Scouts of the USA, which had long been inclusive of LGBT leaders and children (the organization had accepted its first transgender Girl Scout in 2011).

In 2016, the U.S. military lifted its ban on transgender people serving openly, a month after Eric Fanning became secretary of the Army and the first openly gay secretary of a U.S. military branch.

Though LGBT Americans now have same-sex marriage rights and numerous other rights that seemed farfetched 100 years ago, the work of advocates is not over.

Universal workplace anti-discrimination laws for LGBT Americans is still lacking. Gay rights proponents must also content with an increasing number of “religious liberty” state laws, which allow business to deny service to LGBT individuals due to religious beliefs, as well as “bathroom laws” that prevent transgender individuals from using public bathrooms that don’t correspond to their sex at birth

THE OUTBREAK


The outbreak of AIDS in the United States dominated the struggle for gay rights in the 1980s and early 1990s. In 1981, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a report about five previously healthy homosexual men becoming infected with a rare type of pneumonia.

By 1984, researchers had identified the cause of AIDS—the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV—and the Food and Drug Administration licensed the first commercial blood test for HIV in 1985. Two years later, the first antiretroviral medication for HIV, azidothymidine (AZT), became available.

Gay rights proponents held the second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1987. The occasion marked the first national coverage of ACT UP (AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power), an advocacy group seeking to improve the lives of AIDS victims.

The World Health Organization in 1988 declared December 1 to be World AIDS Day. By the end of the decade, there were at least 100,000 reported cases of AIDS in the United States.

Hey, you! Close your Tinder app for a sec, because this is important: STDs in the US are on the rise. Gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis cases all increased in 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That year also saw around 50,000 new HIV cases -- and one in eight infected people don’t know they have it. Yikes.

With all these viruses and bacteria circulating in the dating pool, how often should you actually be getting tested for STDs? We interviewed an OB-GYN, a nurse practitioner, an infectious disease specialist, and a sexual psychophysiologist to find out.


People 24 and Younger, once a year

There are no hard-and-fast guidelines to STD screening, says Dr. Amesh A. Adalja, a board-certified infectious disease physician at the University of Pittsburgh. But there are certain risk factors to take into consideration, and age is one of them. Unfortunately, you tight-bodied, keg-standing whippersnappers have a higher STD risk than your parents. Young women are especially vulnerable to chlamydia and HPV, says nurse-practitioner Bob Smithing, clinical director of FamilyCare of Kent. And HPV can lead to cervical cancer because young women’s cervixes lack a barrier cell present in women older than 25. “The more partners you have when you’re young,” Smithing says, “the higher your risk for cervical cancer later in life. So I’ll tell younger patients to be selective.” But you probably already knew high standards are a good thing.


Men who have sex with Men, every three to six months

Gay and bi guys have higher rates of syphilis and HIV, says Dr. Adalja, and should be tested for HIV, gonorrhea and chlamydia at least every six months. “We test not just in their urethras,” Dr. Adalja says, “but we also check for rectal infection and sometimes in the mouth for gonorrhea.” Depending on your risk factors -- drug use, number of partners, proclivity for the wilder and more daring bedroom activities -- you might lean toward getting tested every three months.


Married, monogamous couple, once a year or never

YAWN. Just kidding. But yeah, as you can probably guess, monogamous couples don’t have much to worry about. “Couples in long-term monogamous relationships are at a low risk for STD transmission,” says Dr. Jason James, a board-certified OB-GYN in private practice in Miami, Florida. There’s no data on how often to screen lesbians, so Dr. Adalja advises them to follow the same guidelines as heterosexual females. Unless you’re showing symptoms, regularly shoot up or are pregnant, you probably don’t need an STD test if you’re in a monogamous relationship.

But! Sometimes the plot thickens... with adultery! “Deception is involved when monogamy is violated,” says Dr. Nicole Prause, a sexual psychophysiologist. “It’s very common for partners with an outside, concealed partner not to use condoms and not to tell their current, unprotected partner,” Dr. Prause says. “Sadly, testing may be a necessary alternative to good communication for many couples.”

Womp-womp. There’s also a good chance your partner has herpes type I or II (85% of US adults do). “The type no longer indicates the location of [herpes], because oral sex has been extremely common in the US for decades,” Dr. Prause says. She adds that there’s a movement to stop calling herpes “sexually” transmitted, considering you can give it to a baby by pinching its adorable, chubby cheeks.


Open Relationship couple, every three months to once a year

“We have to differentiate between an open relationship that’s a limited group and one with no limits,” Smithing says. Got a group of five to eight partners who all have sex with each other? You’re probably fine to get tested once a year, Smithing says. If you and your partner(s) have a rotating cast of side pieces, you should get screened every few months. “Do I have any good, official sources [for this]? Not really,” Smithing admits. “Because of course in healthcare they don’t want to address that sort of thing.”

Full-service sex workers (aka hookers and porn stars), once every two weeks at least

The industry makes its own guidelines. That could mean bi-weekly screenings for adult film actors or weekly screenings at a legal brothel -- it’s “a case-by-case basis,” Dr. Adalja says. “Individuals in that industry want to ensure the safety of their employees, so they will test at a more frequent interval.” Because sometimes, sharing isn’t caring.

GO GET TESTED
