Tom Daley took home the gold medal in the men's 10-meter platform diving competition at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on Friday.

Daley's boyfriend, screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, also sent out a congratulatory message following the results:
Openly gay Australian diver Matthew Mitcham also won gold at the Games in the 10-meter synchronized diving event, Outsports reports:
For Mitcham, winning the gold medal was an accomplishment since he had won six silvers in the event in the past few years. The Aussies beat the Brits by .18, an extremely close finish. Since there were only four teams competing in the final, no bronze medal was awarded.

If they loved each other any more, they might be gay.

Kerri Kupec, spokeswoman for the Alliance Defending Freedom, told The Oklahoman that the clerk will ask Supreme Court justices to review the July 18 decision by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In that 2-1 decision, the court ruled that Oklahoma’s ban violates 14th Amendment guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law.
Mary Bishop and Sharon Baldwin, the Tulsa County couple who sued the court clerk when she refused to give them a marriage license, issued a joint statement Friday night.
“Although we aren’t surprised by the Alliance Defending Freedom's decision to appeal our victory from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, neither are we disappointed,” the couple said.
“We are ready to see the highest court in the land affirm that marriage equality is the law of the land. We have confidence in our case and our lawyers, and should the Supreme Court agree to hear our case, we anticipate a victory there, as well.”
Beyoncé's "Flawless" got a surprise remix this weekend with a guest appearance from Nicki Minaj and the inclusion of some lyrics which reference Solange's fight with Jay-Z in a Met Gala elevator:

Marcia Gallas, a woman from Blue Ash, Ohio, has been denied access to her recently deceased spouse's medical records. While Gallas and her attorney have a federal injunction that is based on a similar case from Cincinnati, Bethesda North Hospital says they cannot release the information due to "state and federal privacy laws."

I'm grieving...It's going to take a long time to get over Barbara and I really don't understand why they won't recognize... what am I to think except that they have a problem with same sex marriage?
Gallas is trying to obtain the records of former spouse Barbara Graham because Graham participated in an 18-year study that requires the records.
While Bethesda North is stubborn in their position, Gallas did not have the same problems getting records from Cincinatti's Jewish Hospital. Said Gallas:
They [Bethesda North] just aren't budging... All they need to do is release her medical records, that's all I'm asking for...I don't think that's too much to ask for.
Gallas can get permission from Graham's sons to access the records, but this could take weeks to process.
