News Nuggets From Rob

10 STATES FILE GAY MARRIAGE BRIEF

The opposition continues to use any tool in the book to stop us from getting hitched.

--------

69 STATE REPS PUSH FOR END OF DADT

The three openly gay members of the House Of Representatives, Barney Frank, Tammy Baldwin, and Jared Poli gathered 66 other signatures for their letter, which hit Obama's desk Thursday. One person should have left themselves out of this letter to the president so as not to be attached to this dirty, filthy number.

--------

FLORIDA UPHOLDS RULING ON GAY ADOPTION

This is great. Florida upholds the ruling that the ban on adoption by gay couples is unconstitutional. Now all Floridians can get the hot new accessory: A baby. That is, if the expected appeal to the state's Supreme Court is not a success.

--------

QUEERING THE GUINNESS

In a totally punk rock move, two twink college students break the record for longest kiss. The video is not much to watch, especially with that annoying girl's mug in the camera the whole time. It's kinda hot, still.

--------

PORTIA TAKES ELLEN'S LAST NAME

One of the most famous gay couples in Hollywood have taken a very big symbolic step forward. This is a pretty brave move to make in the public eye, though nobody would know who she was if she wasn't doing Ellen.

Thanks to Anthony JV Rufolo for permission to use that awesome picture.
