Morning Sweep

The New York Times Magazine takes an in-depth look at gay couples who marry young.

Also in the Times, a story about trans people who come out after they are married and maintain their relationships with their spouses.

In a social experiment, ABC News gauged people’s reactions to gay and lesbian couples kissing in public in both Verona, New Jersey and Birmingham, Alabama. Apparently, some consider gay PDA to be a 911-worthy emergency.

The U.S. Senate has passed the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, but Congress seems no closer to passing ENDA. The Bilerico Project ponders why there’s so much support for legislation against hypothetical discrimination as opposed to the real discrimination that LGBT people face.

There’s no protection for LGBT employees in Wyoming: A federal appeals court has overturned a lower court ruling in the case of a school district that discriminated against two former employees because they are lesbians.
