Morning Sweep

Today is Freedom to Marry Day, and Evan Wolfson has something to say about it.

Barack Obama and John McCain were the big winners in yesterday's Presidential primary elections in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC.

Kerry Eleveld explains the importance of the controversial "superdelegates," 21 of which (out of more than 800) are LGBT. Pam Spaulding adds some details, including info on who many of the NY-based LGBT superdelegates are supporting.

Community groups, including some local gay organizations, in Eastern Long Island (Hamptons, etc) organized a public forum to voice their complaints about some recent columns published in The Independent that offended several minority groups.

Florida seems to be one of the epicenters of activity surrounding LGBT civil rights these days, with the debate over the constitutional ban on gay marriage heating up, Dade County (Miami) considering legislation that would legally recognize domestic partners and an ordinance in Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale) to extend anti-discrimination protections to transgender people.
