Morning Sweep

"Bronx is the gayest place on earth" says one Bronx gay youth. Unfortunately, many LGBT students are either harassed or forced to stay "on the down low" because there is no support system in place for victims of bias-based abuse in public schools.

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann called out Fox News' Bill O'Reilly for incorrectly referencing poll data and stating that most Americans wouldn't vote for a candidate who was endorsed by a gay rights group. The truth is that polling was done in only three states--Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio--and more than 60 percent said that an endorsement by a gay rights group made no difference to them while only less than one-third said they would not vote for that candidate.

The NYTimes Science section features a story on a controversial theory on gender identity that has created intense backlash for a Northwestern University psychology professor.

Check out this page from a children's book written by an "ex-gay." Pretty scary. (via Good As You)

Thanks for pointing out the article on LGBT teens in the Bronx. I missed it, and it simply screams the need for Dignity.
