Gay news

9 07 2009

Two men in a Mexican restaurant in El Paso were ejected and verbally assaulted by other customers and staff after kissing. The police came and told them it was illegal in Texas for 2 men or women to kiss in public and could be cited with homosexual conduct. Ridiculous that states in the US still have those rules. What about anti-discrimination laws.

From august 1, gay couples in Wisconsin can have many of the same rights of heterosexual married couples in that state by forming a legal domestic partnership. While it’s not total equality, this is probably now as good as it gets over there.

And Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakly filed a lawsuit challenging the federal government for denying equal benefits to citizens of her state under DOMA. Well done!! Hopefully she wins.
