Morning Sweep

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced Saturday that she plans to introduce a budget amendment that would stop funding for the enforcement of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) advocates for the repeal of DADT and applauds Adm. Mike Mullen and Secretary Robert Gates on their testimony in favor of a repeal.

New York Times' Frank Rich writes that a general lack of anti-LGBT reaction to the proposed repeal of DADT reflects shifting attitudes.

Another op-ed in the Times argues for the acceptance of openly gay clergy.

This weekend's Creating Change conference in Dallas featured a rousing speech about the progress made thus far by the LGBT community and the work to be done in the year ahead.

Mexico City's new marriage equality law puts the city in the middle of the country's debate on the issue.
