Morning Sweep

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn won her primary yesterday for the 3rd District. Quinn was endorsed by the Pride Agenda.

The Ohio House has passed legislation barring employment and housing discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It now goes to the Senate, where it faces more opposition.

A new Associated Press/National Constitution Center poll found that while the majority of those surveyed believe that same-sex couples should have the same benefits as opposite-sex spouses, a slim majority also believed that the state and federal governments shouldn't recognize these unions as marriages.

The New York Times does a video feature on the first same-sex couple to appear in the paper's wedding announcements back in 2002. Even with a civil union and years together, they still struggle for equal rights.
