Gay News; another hate crime during Outgames, bigots in Washington and more

30 07 2009

Another hate crime happened in the normally so easy-going Denmark during the Outgames. After the attack on three men last weekend, now a few explosive devices were thrown at athletes during the track& field events. Nobody got seriously injured and it was more extreme fireworks then real bombs, but in any event things like this really should not be happening at all. The cops handled it well though in finding and arresting the 31-year old idiot.

Oh the poor bigots that signed the petition against domestic partnerships in Washington do not wanna have their names be made public fearing a public backlash. They are suing the state to prevent publication. Hope they lose, if you wanna be a hater you have to stand up for it. People are allowed to know who spends money and energy against gays so they can stop giving to them.

Caroline Leto and Venera Magazzu from Florida are a lesbian couple and have been domestic partners since 1996. so far nothing special. But these ladies have met in 1939 and are a couple for over 70!! years. They still bicker and love each other like any other couple. The picture of them made me smile and believe in getting older, gay and being happily coupled a bit more.

The two anti-gay issues you note here serve as yet further reminders that a large segment of society, both in the U.S. and abroad, still regards gay men and women as second-class citizens – or worse. That is the salient point of my recently released biographical novel, Broken Saint. It is based on my forty-year friendship with a gay man, and chronicles his internal and external struggles as he battles for acceptance (of himself and by others). More information on the book is available at http://www.eloquentbooks.com/BrokenSaint.html.
