Morning Sweep

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle calls out the city's police department in an editorial demanding quick resolution to a recent gay-targeted hate crime.

Lots of drama in the Massachusetts state legislature as supporters of gay marriage lobby to get rid of an ballot measure that would potentially overturn the state's 2003 Supreme Court decision to allow same-sex couples full marriage equality.

The Washington Post voices concern over anti-gay Dr. James Holsinger, Jr. as Bush's nominee for Surgeon General. HRC has set up an action center so that you can voice your concern, too.

The controversial forced H.I.V. testing bill (for suspected rapists) has passed the NY State Senate and is likely to pass in the Assembly. Openly gay and H.I.V.-positive State Senator Tom Duane was passionate in his opposition to the bill, arguing that it was more about propagating fear of people who have H.I.V. than caring for rape victims.
