Morning Sweep

Same-sex marriage supporters rallied in several states at city marriage bureaus (including NYC’s) this morning as a part of Freedom to Marry Week.

The largest school district in Minnesota has finally done away with its decade-old anti-gay policy, which read “Homosexuality [will] not be taught/addressed as a normal, valid lifestyle.” The new policy directs school teachers and staff to treat LGBT subjects “in a respectful manner that is age-appropriate, factual, and pertinent to the relevant curriculum.”

A hatefully anti-gay infomercial produced by the American Family Association slated to run on a Grand Rapids TV station has been pulled amid controversy and rescheduling issues.
