Morning Sweep

The openly gay president of Hampshire College in Massachusetts married his partner of 25 years recently and talks with the Associated Press about being gay and in academia--and the fact that there are only 11 "out" university presidents in a country with more than 4,000 institutions of higher education.

The 21-year old defendant in the Michael Sandy hate crime/murder trial who claimed to be gay apparently has a girlfriend.

Page Six has an item about NYC Comptroller William Thompson's recent LGBT fundraiser at XES in Chelsea.

Queerty has CNN's coverage of the Ahmadinejad comments oh homosexuality in Iran (or lack, thereof...). The piece is definitely worth watching.

The US Senate is to vote Thursday on whether or not the Hate Crimes bill (Matthew Shepard Act) will be included as an amendment to the Department of Defense Authorization bill. It should be noted the Sen. (and presidential candidate) John McCain attempted to block the bill from going to the Senate floor.
