Morning Sweep

Former Republican Rep. Bob Barr, who led the push for the creation of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, has entered the presidential race as a candidate for the Libertarian nomination.

Caliente Cab Company, a West Village restaurant, has reached a settlement with a lesbian they threw out of the women’s restroom after the Gay Pride Parade last year because she didn’t seem feminine enough.

Just over half of the hospitals rated under a new system got top marks for their LGBT policies, including patient nondiscrimination, visitation and decision-making rights for partners, diversity training for staff, and nondiscriminatory employment practices.

A new survey shows that – surprise! – gays are more likely to buy brands they see as gay-friendly. Some of the brands earning the highest marks include Bravo, Apple, Showtime, HBO, Absolut and Levi’s.
