Morning Sweep

The attacker in a vicious 2006 anti-gay assault in Brooklyn has finally admitted his guilt and will be sentenced to nine years in prison.

New Census numbers show that nearly 150,000 same-sex couples - 27% of the total number of estimated same-sex couples in the U.S. - reported being married last year. Since the actual number of official marriage of same-sex couples in states where it is legal was lower than that, experts are predicting that in the upcoming 2010 Census, many committed couples whose unions are not legally recognized will still report themselves to be married. This could provide valuable information on the actual number of same-sex families that exist in the U.S.

The Atlanta LGBT community is furious over the Sept. 10 undercover raid of a local gay bar.
