A Smorgasbord of Gay and Lesbian News Tidbits

I enjoy my late night meanderings on the cyber highway and have collected some news items of interest to the gay and lesbian community. Some are recent and some are older but still worth a read. Please let me know if you come upon something that is newsworthy and I’ll be sure to post it.

Applause is in order here …

More applause is in order:
