Morning Sweep (PM Edition)

The AP follows up on Sen. Charles Schumer’s announcement in support of marriage equality and the repeal of DOMA with some political insight.

In a first-ever meeting with an LGBT group, the new Secretary of Education met with GLSEN recently and pledged to make schools safe for every student, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

The Vermont Senate voted on Monday to pass the state’s marriage equality bill. The bill now goes to the House Judiciary Committee.

Hawaii Senate Democrats are trying to revive the stalled civil unions bill.

It’s still not over: the city of San Diego is appealing the ruling that it must pay damages to four firefighters who claim they were forced to participate in a pride parade.
