Today Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame came out as bisexual, and Orlando is announcing its bid for the 2018 Gay Games, according to OutSports. So we’ve already got TWO checks next to the “Duh! ‘Bout time!” box this morning. Now here’s the news:
- Pam’s House Blend reports on the official ballot language approved yesterday that Washington state voters will see this fall when they go to the polls to approve same-sex marriage, while the Maine legislature also approved a ballot measure that will make same-sex marriage legal in that state where polls show voters are likely to approve it, according to Towleroad.
- ThinkProgress reports that Tennessee lawmakers have delayed the ‘don’t say gay’ bill to take up ‘abstinence only’ education — the Republican Governor has reiterated his opposition to the ‘don’t say gay’ bill, which could help kill it — while Kentucky’s House rejected an anti-bullying bill that would have protected students from harassment, according to JoeMyGod.
- New York-based Channel 6 News reports that the Danish Prime Minister announced the government will introduce legislation this week legalizing same-sex marriages in the nation that legalized Civil Unions first in the world in 1989.
- ThinkProgres reports a New Hampshire legislator who had previously withdrew a proposed amendment to the constitution that would turn all same-sex marriages into civil unions, has introduced another measure that would leave married couples married, but wouldn’t allow any additional marriages to take place, and would then let the voters decide if they want marriage back. Real straight forward, right?
- Omaha, Nebraska — which sits on the other side of the Missouri river from the LGBT mecca of Iowa — has passed an ordinance adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the city’s non-discrimination laws, according to GoodAsYou.
Finally, Pam Spaulding has video of Wake County Board Chair ignoring citizens’ pleas over the County’s move to endorse the anti-gay ‘Amendment One’ ballot measure.
Not very neighborly, to say the least.
