A look back at today's top stories

GAY NEWS

Dan Savage and Terry Miller had their union officially recognized in Washington state today, along with many others. Check out Savage discussing the big day here. Congrats to them! NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is a divisive figure in the sports world, but I think we can all agree that he was very admirable in standing up for his gay brother

Today the Mormon Church announced that it wants gays to "stay with them". They would just really prefer if those gays weren't gay. Good news from a Quinnipiac University poll that seems to show a significant uptick in support for gay marriage among Catholic males

A not so happy trails to anti-gay Sen. Jim DeMint who announced today that he is stepping down to run a conservative think tank. What's scary is that he might be more powerful there than in the Senate.  

The wife of New York City Mayoral Candidate Bill de Blasio wants everyone to know that though she might have been a lesbian before she isn't anymore. Now that she is "locked" into a marriage that is. Also, yesterday the White House said that it is looking for a legislative route to an ENDA-type law

  1. Technial note: Savage and Miller (and the other WA state couples) received their marriage licenses today but won't be able to marry until after the state's 3-day waiting period. So feel free to congratulate them again on Sunday!

  2. thanks Sam, you've really improved the content of Andy's blog. as your mom might say, we like you, we really like you. You might want to indicate when you're recapping things you've already run since it seems a little repetitive. Otherwise, keep up the good work. Dean
