Morning Sweep (Afternoon Edition)

We apologize for the delay in getting the Sweep up this morning. It's the beginning of October and we at the Pride Agenda have been busier than a one-armed paper hanger!

HRC joined the call to Congress against stripping trans-inclusive language from ENDA and Rep. Frank and Speaker Pelosi announced that the bill would be delayed to allow more time for review. Good As You posted Stonewall Democrats' "ENDA--Accept No Substitute" petition. Pam Spaulding reports that there was many things wrong with the "revised" version of ENDA.

More strange details of the defendant in the Michael Sandy murder trial who claims to be gay (and therefore shouldn't be convicted of an anti-gay hate crime).

You may have already seen this, but if not check out The Advocate Editor-in-Chief Sean Kennedy's love fest to Hillary Clinton.

David Mixner profiles two actors who have come out of the closet and are dispelling the myth that gay actors cannot play straight roles.

Lots of action on college campuses: Georgetown students are protesting a hate crime allegedly committed by the 19-year old son of a former member of the Bush administration. And Yale Law School students come out against "Don't Ask Don't Tell."
