In another victory for New York same-sex couples married out of state, a state appellate court has upheld an Ulster County lesbian couple's right to state health insurance benefits. When will the Alliance Defense Fund learn to stop wasting their time?

A federal judge has denied Prop. 8 supporters’ request for a preliminary injunction to keep anti-gay donors’ names secret.
