Gay news, Equality March a success, Schwarzenegger shows his pro-gay side, another vicious hate-crime in NYC

13 10 2009

The National Equality March in Washington as a huge success. With over 250.000 people(lots of young people)  attending and with guest speakers as Lady Gaga, Cynthia Nixon(Miranda in Sex and the City) and Cleve Jones( activist in the 70’s and friend of Harvey Milk) who all delivered great speeches, I hope Washington and Obama will listen!

Yesterday Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two pro-gay bills into law. The first is by making May 22nd Harvey Milk day to honor the killed gay activist. Something he refused to do last year. The other gives LGBT people a less symbolic gain by recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states. The wingnut right goes angry of course, calling Harvey Milk a predator and liar. Well, I have to say after a very weak start as Governor of California, Schwarzenegger does better and better.

A 49-year old gay man was brutally beaten outside a Queens’ deli friday early morning. Two men yelled anti-gay slurs and attacked him. The man is in a coma and has two collapsed lungs, liver damage, a fractured jaw, rib fractures and a lacerated spleen. One victim 21- year old Daniel Rodriguez has been arrested. The police is still on the look-out for the other suspect. Just horrible
