- A North Carolina Anti-Gay Marriage amendment is so broadly written that it would forbid the state from recognizing any type of relationship that isn't the marriage between a man and a woman. Meaning the police wouldn't be able to enforce domestic violence laws in cases where the couple isn't married. But hey, what's more important to the Republican Party protecting victims of abuse or treating gay people as second class citizens? I think we all know the answer.
- New York Republican lawmakers who supported the state's marriage equality legislation won't be Republicans for much longer, as they're now facing serious primary challenges.
- A Student Body President of an Atlanta high school had a neat idea: what if instead of a "Prom King and Queen" they had a "Prom Court" to be more inclusive to LGBT students. Then the school decided that he's not Student Body President anymore. Now he's suing.
- Documents released during a Court Hearing in which the National Organization for Marriage was trying to illegally keep the names of their donors secret, show that it was the goal of the organization to ratchet up tensions between the African American community and white gays:
The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks - two key democratic constituencies. We aim to find, equip, energize and connect African American spokespeople for marriage; to develop a media campaign around their objections to gay marriage as a civil right; and to provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots. No politician wants to take up and push an issue that splits the base of the party. Fanning the hostility raised in the wake of Prop 8 is key...So that's classy.
