Morning Sweep

Often at the center of the gay marriage debate, children raised by same-sex couples now tell their side of the story in a Seattle Times article.

NYS Comptoller Tom DiNapoli signed off on the state budget. That's good news for LGBT people.

New York City may be turning to circumcision as a method to slow the spread of H.I.V. in minority communities.

A not-so-warm welcome for Soulforce at the not-so-tolerant Bob Jones University

Democratic presidential contender Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) spoke in favor of civil unions to a group of high school students in Concord, NH yesterday. He also said, however, that he "didn't support gay marriage." It's a nice start, but we hope that the Senator will eventually see that seperate is still not equal.

Also in New Hampshire, the state House passed a civil unions bill yesterday by a vote of 243-129.

Congrats Pride Agenda (and Josh & Joe specifically!) on the new blog -- great new resource for us news and political junkies. That NY Times article on HIV/AIDS and circumsision is bugging me -- and wish it put the conclusions into the broader context of prevention. And those stats on gay Manhattanites and HIV are outdated (though appropriately frightening).
