LGBT Fast Friday News 1/18/13

Fast Friday is a weekly feature in which I provide links to news items and other resources of interest to the LGBT community.

Check out my tongue-in-cheek DOMA Rap on the law office’s YouTube page. It was written the night before my guest lecture on same-sex marriage and LGBT rights to a group of family law paralegal students. Just for fun .. and hopefully to teach them something about DOMA.
