Morning Sweep

Q-Notes, a Carolinas LGBT newspaper, did e-mail Q&A’s with both Clinton and Obama. No surprise – they both say they support equality for LGBT Americans – but through civil unions, not marriage.

The New York Times reports that sexual harassment has gotten worse at schools, and LGBT students face it twice as often as their straight peers.

The Times’ editorial board weighs in on those Lesbians from Lesboslawsuit, which proves that frivolous litigation isn’t an exclusively American pastime.

Florida is about to get an anti-bullying law. And it only took 8 years!

Americans For The Military, part of the conservative Center for Military Readiness, is circulating a petition against the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Guess they’d rather get ready without the estimated two gays per day who are kicked out of the military.

Despite controversy, plans have been announced to build a monument in Tel Aviv honoring lesbians and gays killed in the Holocaust.

Openly gay actor Alan Cumming says much of Hollywood is still in the closet.
