Fast Five Fix: March 19

Happy Alka Seltzer Day. Remember when we told you last week about the connections between anti-gay groups and the creators of the “Kony 2012” video, Invisible Children? They’ve even been connected to the “Kill The Gays” bill in Uganda, according to ThinkProgress. Well, one of the co-founders was arrested for vandalizing cars and masturbating in public this week. Whoops. Here’s the news:

  • Bilerico has been following the story about anti-gay state Senators in Indiana succeeding in ending the distribution of a pro-gay license plate in that state, whose sale raised money for a youth group.
  • Canada is warning gay couples traveling to St. Petersburg Russia to be cautious after the city passed a “no-gay-propaganda” ordinance, says JoeMyGod.
  • AMERICAblog says the New Hampshire house will vote this week on another attempt to undo marriage equality in that state, a topic that has seemed to preoccupy the Republican-helmed legislature there the way that Judge Wapner preoccupied Rain Main.
  • Rick Santorum re-ups his pledge to re-implement “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” says JoeMyGod, despite recent polls of military personnel showing support for repeal has skyrocketed.
  • ThinkProgress reports North Carolina’s Governor Bev. Perdue has tweeted her opposition to the anti-gay ballot measure, Amendment One, following the President’s own statement against the proposed law that would bar recognition of same-sex couples in the Constitution.

Finally, check out these two guys that interrupted a Rick Santorum rally in North Carolina to make out.
