Morning Sweep

New York's top court yesterday rejected the anti-gay Alliance Defense Fund's legal challenge that sought to take away some government protections granted to same-sex couples married in other jurisdictions and now living in NY.

Liz Benjamin explains what the ruling means for LGBT New Yorkers.

Some D.C. Council members are attempting to reach a compromise with the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington so Catholic Charities will not end its social services contracts with the District if marriage equality is extended to gay couples.

The New York Times writes about schools adjusting their dress codes to accommodate the changing times, including students whose clothing of choice isn't traditional for their gender.

Gender verification test results have been determined for Caster Semenya, the 18-year-old South African runner who made headlines for having her gender questioned by sports officials, but they won't be made public. “We urge all South Africans and other people to respect this professional, ethical and moral way of doing things,” officials said.
