Morning Sweep

New York Times columnist Frank Rich writes against Obama’s choice of Pastor Rick Warren to give the invocation at the inauguration. Warren now claims on his church’s website that his positions on homosexuality are not as extreme as he has stated in the past.

CNN reports that an increasing number of single men – both gay and straight – are becoming fathers through surrogacy.

The shooting of Leeneshia Edwards in Memphis on Christmas Eve marks the third crime against trans women there in the past six months.

In its “Snapshots of 2008” series, a Ventura County newspaper profiles a gay couple married before Prop. 8 passed and a 20-year-old active Prop. 8 supporter.

A new study has found a direct link showing that gay teens rejected by their families are more likely to be suicidal and engage in risky behaviors.

I am very disappointed in Obama for his choice of Rick Warren to speak at the inauguration. I am also disappointed in Melissa Etheridge and the gay community, where are all of the activists? Does it take AIDS to get you all fired up? I am not even in a relationship and I am so livid. C'mon Empire State Pride Agenda, organize some sort of action on the day of the Inauguration, please? Oh yeah, Happy New Year.
