Morning Sweep

The New York Times covers the crucial work being done by New York LGBT advocates and allies across the state who have met with their Senators in-district to talk about the importance of marriage equality.

The New York Times’ City Room blog has a run-down of last Thursday’s conference of New York legal experts in support of marriage equality.

The Obama administration has indicated that it is having “preliminary discussions” about repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” – but has made no promises on a timeline for action.

In the Washington Post, at at-large member of the D.C. Council praises its decision to extend recognition to legally married same-sex couples, while an anti-gay rally organizer writes that the decision “marked a new low in irresponsible leadership.”

Five years after marriage for same-sex couples first became legal in Massachusetts, the AP reflects on how it has affected lesbian and gay couples in the state.

The Times also covers some of the basics of health insurance for gay couples.

In honor of Mother’s Day this past weekend, a Huffington Post blogger wrote on the powerful experiences of children raised by gay parents.
