Morning Sweep

Today is HRC's "National Coming Out Day"

LGBT groups at college campuses across the nation typically celebrate Coming Out Week through various events/activities: Syracuse's University Senate passed a proposal that would give equal benefits to same-sex partners of university employees. Georgetown students tried but failed to get the university's president to join in the campus festivities. USC (my alma mater) and Michigan saw some anti-gay drama. USC's Daily Trojan responded. And Penn State's LGBT group and campus Democrats held a forum on LGBT issues.

A USA Today poll of American youth found that the majority see Christianity as "judgemental, hypocritical and anti-gay."

A general manager at Microsoft in Seattle has announced that he will be transitioning from Michael to Megan.
