Morning Sweep

Even though it’s standard for members of Congress to bring their spouses on military flights, openly gay Rep. Tammy Baldwin recently needed a special appeal by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring her partner onboard.

More proof of why we need ENDA: A city council candidate in Plano, Texas (a state without any anti-discrimination laws) might be fired from his county job just because he’s gay.

Wanting to leave a lasting legacy, an increasing number of older LGBT individuals are making donations to organizations that support the cause.

The Irish government will soon introduce civil-union legislation.

The European Union’s highest court ruled that same-sex couples in countries that recognize civil unions are entitled to their dead partner’s pensions.
