Morning Sweep

As reaction to the most recent killing of a LGBT school student, this time in California, ripples across the nation and reaches New York, Gay City News calls on elected officials in Albany and New York City to get serious about protecting New York’s youth from bullying and violence in schools due to bias. One local response to the killing of Lawrence King will be a vigil next Wednesday in Bay Shore by the Long Island GLBT Community Center.

Richard Dollinger, who was one of the LGBT community’s staunchest supporters in the State Senate when he represented the Rochester area, is expected to announce in the next two weeks that he will run again for his old Senate seat.

The Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center wins its battle with the city of Kingston for designation as a tax-exempt organization.
