Morning Sweep

A Queens judge has sentenced the murderer of Edgar Garzon, a 35-year-old gay man who was killed in 2001, to 22 years-to life.

Sarah Palin told a reporter that she supports a federal amendment to ban gay marriage – a stance more severe than McCain’s. You betcha that even the cutest SNL performance can’t outweigh that kind of position…

Paul Smith, the lawyer who argued Lawrence v. Texas (the case that struck down sodomy laws), says Obama is the only safe choice for LGBT voters based on the kind of Supreme Court judges he would appoint versus McCain's possible picks.

A Huffington Post blogger wonders how Colin Powell’s endorsement of Obama will affect “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

There’s been much to do lately about a proposed gay-friendly high school to be built in Chicago. The L.A. Times editorial board weighs in, writing that although the intentions are good, “cloistering” LGBT students isn’t the answer to discrimination.

A Philadelphia newspaper has an interesting story on what it’s like to transition as a transgender teen.
