Morning Sweep

Lots of buzz this morning about Logo/HRC's "gay debate" on Aug. 9. More here, here, here and here.

The American Psychological Association is set to review the effects of "reparative therapy," which attempts to change an individual's sexual orientation. Most experts believe that the APA panel will find that such therapies are damaging and harmful.

Straight couples in Florida are worried that a proposed amendment to the state constitution (narrowly defining marriage and forbidding any other alternative) will threaten their domestic partnerships. A bipartisan advocacy group has been organized to fight the amendment.

A court battle in Michigan is proof that marriage amendments also jeopardize domestic partner benefits.

¡No me digas! Bill Richardson used the "m" word.

GLAAD gives "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" two snaps up. Towleroad notes that the movie is getting mixed responses from the LGBT community.
