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

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.
