A Brazilian general’s comment that gay soldiers should not be allowed to command troops sparked fierce criticism today from gay rights groups and a national lawyers’ organisation that champions human rights
Sarah Jessica Parker has given away her tickets to the Sex and the City 2 premier in a bid to raise money for equal LGBT rights.
Kenya police on Friday arrested five suspected homosexuals in a coastal resort town after hundreds of residents protested over a planned gay wedding, a local official said.
Seeking to overcome a broadcast blackout imposed by the US Supreme Court, a pair of Los Angeles filmmakers have undertaken the task of faithfully recreating the federal trial on California’s same-sex marriage ban for the internet – all 60-plus hours of it; every “um,” “yes, your honour” and “objection!”
A progressive blogger and another man who tried to go to a special event at Kentucky's Creation Museum said they were denied admission because they told security that they were a same-sex couple.
The men bought tickets online for a Date Night event on Feb. 11 at the privately funded museum. It offers visitors a literal interpretation of the Bible depicting how the world was created in six days about 6,000 to 10,000 years ago.
Both museum officials and the men agree that they weren't let in and their ticket costs were not refunded. They differ on whether it was clear beforehand that men without female companions would be turned away.
One of the men who was denied admission, Joe Sonka, is the writer of a blog called Barefoot and Progressive. He has previously criticised the museum and its founder and says he is not gay.
