Morning Sweep

New York gay couples who went to Massachusetts to get married between May 17, 2004 and July 6, 2006 (the day of the NYS Court of Appeals decision on marriage) have fully valid marriages, according to a Massachusetts court. We'll have more on that later.

Jerry Falwell, who most certainly was not a friend of LGBT people, has died. He will not be missed.

Yolanda King--eldest daughter of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and longtime ally of the LGBT community--will be missed.

Moms are coming out in defense of their gay children and calling for acceptance within faith communities.

A Fresno, CA high school elected a transgender prom queen. Johnny Vera stood 6'4" in heels as she accepted the honor.

There will be no gay pride parade allowed in Moscow this year. Again. But those obstinate Muscovite 'mos say they're gonna march anyway!

More faith communities need to inact the initiatived that the "Methodist Mom's" have taken within their congregation. This will not only help to educate, but hopefully begin to turn the tide of bigotry that the late Falwell fought so ardently for.
