All the young gays are celebrating in Seattle, uprising in NYC, dancing in Rutgers (and our strai army allies are dancing homosexily in Afghanistan!), taking back the night in WI, speaking against violence in CA, hosting Dan Choi at Harvard, and more!

A Mississippi school would rather shut down prom than invite a cute lesbian couple. Well, that’s nonsense! Let’s get visible, lesbian/bisexuals/queers/etc. Autostraddle wants your cute same-sex prom/fancypants/homecoming photos. You could even win a prize!
Rather than allow a lesbian to bring her girlfriend to prom and wear a tux, the school has canceled prom altogether! FANTASTIC. Also; the cute video of the kid finding out about gay people, the death of coffee shops, gays and the census, Bill O’Reily defends lesbian couple’s child and the national equality riders are coming soon to an oppressive campus near you.
Many schools are considering doing away with books — NYTimes debates the issue with Experts, and we have feelings.

Also; initiative to spread awareness of HPV in the gay community, the ethics of cruising to Haiti, it’s expensive to be gay, pro-gay wives & their politician husbands, the Sanctified Slide, pretty angry women and gay people prefer gay hotels.
Rather than turn over custody, an ex-gay Mom has just vanished into thin air. Two gay men got married yesterday in Latin America’s first gay marriage. The LAPD is not down with discrimination. The Senate confirmed the first gay U.S. marshal. Gay rumors are flying in an Illinois Senate race. And The Tyra Banks Show is calling it quits!

Also; everyone thinks my girlfriend is a Sir, Catholic attitudes on gays, gossip columnist comes out, Caster Semenya notes on a scandal and Adelaide’s first gay cruise!
The Philippines is widely regarded as Asia’s most gay-friendly country. So why are its lesbians forced to marry men, submerge desire and stay in the closet?
