John McCain says he won’t try to soften the GOP’s position on gay issues.

The Oklahoman addresses state rep. Sally Kern’s recent homophobic statements in an editorial.

The national union representing workers in the textile, clothing, hotel and restaurant industries joins the fight for LGBT marriage equality.

California activists claim they are close to collecting all of the signatures needed to put an amendment banning same-sex marriage on the Nov. ballot.

In a step forward, an Arizona regulatory panel has approved domestic partner benefits for state employees.
