  • Catholics are no longer discouraged from using condoms to prevent HIV, says the Daily Telegraph. Just don’t use them in a gay way.
  • The Catholic Diocese of San Francisco has stepped in and canceled an annual fundraiser for recovering addicts in the LGBT community all over drag queens, says the Bay Area Reporter. My thought: they were afraid they would no longer be the most fabulous boys in dresses on church property.

  • Third Beat reports that gay This American Life contributor, David Rakoff has died after a battle with cancer.
  • Courage Campaign’s Prop 8 Trial Tracker reports that Indiana has joined Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, and Virginia in signing onto an amicus brief supporting the Defense of Marriage Act in the Gill case which is challenging the law that prevents Federal recognition of married same-sex couples.
