Morning Sweep

Former eBay Chief Executive Meg Whitman launched her campaign for governor of California yesterday. Whitman supported Prop. 8, but says she has nothing against civil unions or gay adoptions, and says the same-sex couples married in CA before the election shouldn’t have their status taken away.

Although both gay candidates in Fort Lauderdale’s mayoral election were defeated yesterday, there’s good news: the winner – former Florida state Rep. Jack Seiler (D) – supports gay rights and replaces former mayor Jim Naugle, who was staunchly anti-gay.

The ACLU is suing a Florida high school for refusing to allow students to form a Gay-Straight Alliance on campus.

LGBT-owned business are mostly suffering in this economy – except for the gay nightlife. Cheers!
