Morning Sweep

The New York Times says that Gov. Spitzer will introduce a marriage program bill by the end of the legislative session. More here and here.

Pam Spaulding reminds us of New York State's junior senator's sometimes problematic position on the issue of marriage...but at least she's found her voice on the issue of gays in the military!

The Concord Monitor points out that the rights that come with marriage are sorely needed by same-sex couples in the twilight of their lives.

Washington's governor signed a bill over the weekend that would allow for same-sex domestic partnerships in the Evergreen State.

The NY Times notes a slight increase this month in requests for civil unions in New Jersey.

A transgender student is in the running for prom king in Fresno, California.

And mentioned in the NY Times article at the top of this list, the Pride Agenda will be bringing nearly 1000 LGBT people and straight allies to lobby their elected officials in Albany on May 1. There are only three days left to register! Do it now here.
