A look back at today's top stories

GAY ISSUES

Santa Fe, New Mexico Mayor David Coss is breaking ground by attempting to offer gay couples marriage licenses. Coss cites the fact that the city's definition of marriage is gender neutral. More power to him! Citizens in Finland are tired of being the only Scandinavian country that doesn't allow same-sex marriage and are attempting to force their Parliament's hand

Better late than never; after it was reported earlier today that Chipotle was continuing to support the Boy Scouts despite their anti-gay policies, the restaurant chain has pulled out of a Boy Scout event in Utah. The New Jersey teen whose coming out went viral is hoping lawmakers in the state take steps to ban "ex-gay" reparative therapy. And it seems the ACLU might be coming to the rescue of some bullied students in California

WINGNUTTERY

After being suspended over a rash of homophobic tweets, CNN contributor Roland Martin will be leaving CNN soon and is blaming Jeff Zucker. Also Rachel Maddow is skeptical that the GOP can actually achieve that re-branding they talked about after CPAC.

    “Blame” is too strong a word, Sam, for what Roland Martin said about Jeff Zucker. Not that I’m sad to see Martin go, but it would be nice if Towleroad did not overstate its case when reporting on stuff like this. It happens too much.

    How come Germany is grey on the map? They have civil unions that are almost equal to marriage.
