Fast Five Fix: Feb 1

Your fix comes late today courtesy of broken intertubes. Apologies for the delay, especially for those of you really feening. Let’s get you hooked up with some morning news links:

  • Towleroad reports the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage is threatening a boycott of Starbucks over its endorsement of the Washington state marriage bill (being voted on today); in response LGBT activists yawned. NOM members yawned too, since they don’t have coffee.
  • Superstar super gay allies (and supergays) Chad Griffin, Rob Reiner, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be appearing at the Family Equality Awards Dinner in LA
  • Openly gay GOP presidential candidate Fred Karger is filing a discrimination complaint against the conservative conference CPAC for refusing to allow him a presence there, according to the liberal American Independent news site.
  • ThinkProgress reports New Hampshire Governor John Lynch has re-upped his pledge to veto any repeal of gay marriage in that state.
  • Once again, those that want to keep same-sex couples from adopting or being foster parents in Illinois have snuck a bill into the assembly yesterday to do so, according to the Windy City Times.

Finally, GLSEN announced this morning that its ‘Think Before You Speak‘ ad campaign will premier at this Sunday’s Super Bowl. I don’t know if this is the same ad attendees will see during the big game, but here is the one that’s up on the website now:

According to the press release, it will show to all of those who are attending the big game in Indianapolis.
