    A Fort Worth high school student was sent to the principal’s office earlier this week for telling another classmate he believes homosexuality is wrong. Fourteen-year-old Dakota Ary spent most of the day Tuesday serving an in-school suspension. It was punishment for discussion in his German class at Fort Worth’s Western Hills High School. “We were talking about religions in Germany. I said, ‘I’m a Christian. I think being a homosexual is wrong,’” he said. “It wasn’t directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me. I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he...

    In January of last year, I appeared on Global Television talking about the blatant conflict of interest arising from the recent election of 21-year old Paul Marai, given that he was also an openly gay, homosexual activist, and his newly appointed Catholic School Board Trustee position. A few seconds (literally) after the interview was shown, I received an e-mail via Facebook entitled “F*%&$ Yourself”. “Gain some rationality”, the author said. “You’re embarassing (yes, he spelled it that way) your intellect on TV. Learn a thing or two in school before you call homosexuality a disorder. You’re officially the joke of...

    TORONTO, ON, September 16, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A father of a six-year-old student in the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) says he was shocked to discover what the school board considers to be “Days of Significance,” reports the Toronto Sun. In the “Days of Significance”  calendar in his son’s 2011-12 daily planner, Jaak Purres discovered days devoted to transgendered people, prostitution, gender identity, and Dyke marches. “I was looking through this thing and was shocked,’” said the outraged father. “It’s just bizarre! He’s six. I want him to enjoy being six.” Purres pointed out that the planner comes from a...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Night-long celebrations will mark the final countdown to the historic end of the U.S. military's ban on openly gay troops, and even more partying will take place once it is lifted Tuesday. But in many ways change is already here. Countless subtle acts over the past months have been reshaping the military's staunchly traditional society in preparation for the U.S. armed forces' biggest policy shift in decades. Supporters of repeal compare it to the racial de-segregation of troops more than 60 years ago. For some gay service members, the fear of discovery and reprisals dissipated months...

    Students in the Los Angeles Unified school district may soon be taught “age-appropriate” curriculum promoting positive images of homosexuals and their contributions to society. The resolution approved on Tuesday directs officials to come up with an implementation plan within 90 days, the Associated Press reported. One mom present at the school board meeting recalled the reaction her son Elliot received at school when he openly declared himself to be homosexual at age 13 in front of hundreds of classmates.

    An interesting recent paper confirms that most gay men with one main partner for a given year also have concurrent casual sexual relationships. The paper presents good data on the number of gay partnerships per year, confirming previous findings by others, but what is new are data about gay relationships per year when there is also a main partner. Contrary to the stereotype, the typical number of sexual partners per year per person in the SSA community is not hundreds but about three. If there was no main partner the figure was five. The result for bisexuals was 2.5 partners....

    Equality is THE LAW in NY State This year the State of New York made the decision to recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry. It's now the law, and public officials must abide by it regardless of their personal prejudices. Dear xxxxxx, This weekend we demanded that the Town Clerk of Ledyard, New York, Rose Marie Belforti, sign marriage licenses for same-sex couples looking to marry -- as the law dictates she must do -- or resign. Belforti had previously stated that she would not sign licenses for same-sex couples and refused to do so for one couple...

    With the military on the verge of allowing gay men and lesbians to serve openly, Army and Air Force officials have approved the distribution of a magazine targeting gay service members at bases starting next month. OutServe Magazine will hit store shelves at Army and Air Force bases on Sept. 20, the day the Pentagon plans to formally end enforcement of the “don’t ask, don'tI tell” policy that bans gays from serving openly. The publication is published by OutServe, a group of secretly gay active duty service members that says it has hundreds of members currently serving in Iraq and...

    A policy that bars gay men from donating blood for life is “suboptimal,” advisers to the Health and Human Services Department said on Tuesday, and needs another look. HHS asked a committee of experts on blood and tissue donations to reexamine the policy and see if there is a way to let at least some gays donate blood. (snip)Men who have sex with other men, including gay and bisexual men, have an HIV infection rate 60 times higher than that of the general population

    Two uniquely American principles — the right to freedom of association, and the right of access by minorities to public places — are in conflict once again, this time in a bucolic Vermont inn. The owners of the Wildflower Inn in Lyndonville, Vermont, are the targets of an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit for refusing to host a wedding reception for a same-sex couple. Kate Baker and Ming Linsley of New York City contend in Vermont Superior Court that Jim and Mary O'Reilly violated the state's Fair Housing and Public Accommodations Act, which identifies businesses and institutions that cannot turn...

    The Anoka-Hennepin School District is being sued for its Sexual Orientation Curriculum Policy, which says that staff members must remain neutral on matters regarding sexual orientation. The district has been dealing with bullying and harassing of students for their sexual orientation and is currently under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. The Southern Poverty Law Center, National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Faegre & Benson, LLP, filed a federal lawsuit today, calling the policy a “gag policy.” According to a statement released by the Anoka Hennepin Gay Equity Team, they feel that the policy has contributed to an “unsafe...

It was written by Julie Trollope in response to a letter by gay church leaders claiming the Church of England was failing to embrace diversity. The newspaper said she had a right to have her views aired. Ms Trollope, who signs off the letter with Bath Christian, said she wrote it in response to an open letter to...

    Now that same-sex marriage has been legalized in New York, at least a few large companies are requiring their employees to tie the knot if they want their partners to qualify for health insurance. Should companies require gay employees to marry if they want health coverage for their same-sex partners? Corning, I.B.M. and Raytheon all provide domestic partner benefits to employees with same-sex partners in states where they cannot marry. But now that they can legally wed in New York, five other states and the District of Columbia, they will be required to do so if they want their partner...

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said Wednesday the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy must be immediately lifted now that the Obama administration says it’s unconstitutional to treat gay Americans differently under the law.

    The New York gay marriage bill introduced by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo needs only one more yea vote from a Republican senator to pass. If that vote materializes, New York would become the sixth and most populous state to allow same-sex marriage. President Obama received mixed reviews after speaking Thursday night to supporters of the bill at a Democratic fundraiser in New York City. More than 600 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people paid $1,250 each to attend the gala. The president's critics argue that although he said he supports equal rights for gays and lesbians, he won't come...
