Morning Sweep

NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn released a statement in response to an anti-gay attack in Hell's Kitchen this past weekend.

The AP provides a summary of the issues facing voters in the three places that have the option to protect or reverse LGBT-inclusive laws on an upcoming ballot: an inclusive non-discrimination ordinance in Kalamazoo, Mich., domestic partnership protections in Washington, and marriage equality in Maine.

President Clinton explains his reasoning for changing his mind in support of marriage for same-sex couples.

Conservative members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America voted Saturday to spend the next year deciding whether to split from the church after it voted to allow gays and lesbians in committed relationships to serve as clergy.

A new study provides evidence to back up what to many is a no-brainer: that the sexual orientation of adoptive parents does not have an impact on the emotional development of their children.

The Virginian-Pilot has interesting short profiles of three gay and lesbian members of the military who have been forced to keep their sexual orientation a secret in order to avoid being discharged under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

The L.A. Times profiles Carlos Moreno, the lone CA Supreme Court justice who voted in favor of overturning Prop. 8 because he was "legally and morally" opposed -- a controversial decision which may have cost his the chance at being appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
