    Tennis legend Martina Navratilova is being sued for millions of pounds by a former lover who claims she was dumped without warning after nearly eight years. Toni Layton, 56, who married the nine-times Wimbledon champion in an official wedding ceremony, is demanding a share of four multi-million dollar homes bought during their time together. Her lawsuit extends to the 'emotional, mental and physical trauma' she suffered after being 'removed' from 52-year-old Navratilova's life a year ago. Layton said: 'Martina has got a fight on her hands. Without any warning, my life came crashing down around me. I was kicked out...

    NEW YORK, May 18 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Cynthia Nixon says she is engaged to her longtime girlfriend Christine Marinoni. Nixon is a Tony Award winner probably best known for her portrayal of Miranda in the "Sex and the City" TV show and its big-screen follow-up. E! News said the actress announced her engagement during the weekend's Love, Peace and Marriage Equality rally in New York, which is where she and Marinoni live. The couple, who reportedly got engaged last month, have been together since 2003. E! News did not say when they plan to exchange wedding vows.

    Both women in lesbian couples with children should be given compulsory paternity and maternity leave, under proposals tabled in the European Parliament. Euro-MPs will vote next month on European Union legislation to give conventional fathers and gay second mothers mandatory rights to two weeks off work if their partner gives birth. MEPs on the parliament's women's rights committee have amended European Commission proposals on "paternity/co-maternity" parental rights to reflect "different types of family structure", including homosexual couples.

    Out Magazine has unveiled its 3d annual "Power 50," a compendium of the most influential gay men and women in America, and -- no surprise -- it's full of heavy-hitters who call the Bay State (or New England) home. Topping this year's list is congressman Barney Frank, chairman of the House Financial Service Committee. At No. 4, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow -- she of the chunky glasses, whipsmart political sense, and wry wit -- who lives in Western Mass. At No. 7, it's Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire. No. 23 is the tireless blogger/author/pot-stirrer Andrew Sullivan, who's racked...

I'm doing this publicly because u&ur (sic) friends call People mag.. So you win, you broke my...

    Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, 35, will wed this weekend in California, Usmagazine.com has learned exclusively. The pair are planning a small, intimate ceremony with only a few close friends and family. See photos of engagement bling. Following the California Supreme Court's monumental ruling that same sex couple's have the "right to marry," DeGeneres announced she planned to wed her longtime girlfriend on a taping of her show in May. "It's something that we've wanted to do and we want it to be legal and we are very, very excited," DeGeneres, 50, gushed. DeGeneres reflected on their upcoming nuptials...

    SCOTTSBORO - Jackson County Circuit Judge John Graham today ordered the Scottsboro City Board of Education to allow a gay couple to attend Scottsboro High School's senior-junior prom tonight. Chelsea Overstreet, 17, a junior at the high school, and her date Lauren Martin, 16, a sophomore at the school, were initially told by school officials they could not attend because the school board does not allow students of the same sex to attend the prom together, their lawyer Parker Edmiston of Scottsboro said in a press conference this afternoon. Because there is no state law specific to the issue, Graham...

    In the most bizarre twist of a surreal campaign, Republicans could lose control of the House of Representatives due in part to disgraced Congressman Mark Foley's salacious e-mails to under-aged pages. If that happens, the beneficiary will be the party that has uncritically embraced the gay-rights movement -- which in turn embraces other things. Speaking of double standards: In 1983, Massachusetts Congressman Gary Studds (who passed away a few days ago) was found to have had sexual relations with a 16-year-old male page (No cyber-stalking for the Bay State perv.) He was censured by the House, then repeatedly reelected by...

    Lawyers for a former Poway High School student who was pulled out of class for wearing an anti-gay T-shirt have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review an early ruling in the case. Papers filed yesterday by the Alliance Defense Fund urged the court to take up an April ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said high school administrators were justified when they removed Tyler Chase Harper from class. In 2004, Harper, then a sophomore, wore a shirt on which he wrote, “I will not accept what God has condemned,” and on the back, “Homosexuality is...

    NEW YORK: Amelie Mauresmo doesn't bounce around the court in a low-cut dress like Maria Sharapova or design her own outfits like Serena Williams. The world's top-ranked women's tennis player just wins. Mauresmo has won Wimbledon and the Australian Open this year and held the sport's No.1 spot since March 30. She's the top seed at the US Open in New York, where play started on Monday. Yet Mauresmo, who is openly gay, lags her rivals in endorsements. "The corporate world wants this perfect female," said Mauresmo's agent, Micky Lawler. For now, that's Sharapova. At 1.88 metres tall and 60...

    Personal trainers are the new dental hygienists: health professionals who prattle on about how they spent their weekend while their clients are under physical duress and most vulnerable. So "Work Out," a reality show on Bravo set in a trendy Beverly Hills, Calif., gym, sounds dubious: A chance not only to hear about the weekend but actually to watch it unfold. Yet the series (airing Wednesdays at 11 p.m.), is surprisingly compelling, a rollicking workplace melodrama set amid protein shakes, elliptical machines and glistening abs. Jackie Warner, the owner of Sky Sport and Spa, is an attractive, exacting businesswoman with...

    Wicca, the pagan temptation for youth increases followers By ALAN BRANCH Baptist Press Published September 8, 2005 I recently had the opportunity to meet with several youth ministers from Southern Baptist churches here in Missouri. Each impressed me as having a deep commitment to biblical authority and personal passion for Jesus Christ. As we discussed the challenges facing current youth ministers, a concern all shared was the fact that many youth, including youth in evangelical churches, are dabbling in Wicca. So, what is Wicca? The word “wicca” was an old English word which meant “shaman.” The word was reintroduced into...

    Swedish legislators are due to amend a law which would legalise fertilisation treatment for lesbian couples. The new provision, which is expected to pass easily before coming into force in July, will be available to lesbian couples joined in civil partnerships. After the child is born, both women would be regarded as its mother. Currently, artificial insemination is only available to heterosexual partners, requiring lesbian couples to go abroad for treatment. "The basis for the bill is that lesbian couples will be on an equal footing with heterosexual couples when it comes to assisted fertilisation," the government said. Liberal approach...

    Cynthia Nixon is trying a different kind of sex in the city, the Daily News has learned. For almost 10 months now, the Emmy-winning actress has been dating another woman, sources say. Back in June of 2003, Nixon split with Danny Mozes, the father of her two children. Last January, according to friends, she began a lesbian relationship. Right now, Nixon, 38, does not want to be as outspoken as Rosie O'Donnell, the sources say. But Nixon did not flinch when we asked her yesterday whether she is involved with another woman. Speaking exclusively with the Daily News, she said,...

    Alyn Libman won a $15,000-a-year scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley with a resume that showed more than just Libman's athletic achievement and academic potential. It also showed years of ridicule, beatings and threats, along with Libman's decision to become a boy in 11th grade. "It felt amazing to actually be embraced by someone who didn't just dismiss me for being different," said Libman, a 19-year-old aspiring civil rights lawyer and the first transgendered person to win a scholarship from The Point Foundation, a Chicago nonprofit organization that has awarded more than $1 million to college-bound gays since...

    ITHACA--Dorian Solot and Marshall Miller, experienced sex educators who co-founded the Alternatives to Marriage Project, discussed the myths and truths of the female orgasm in front of a packed crowd at Robert Purcell last night. Solot began with a narrative of her experiences with masturbation, from her teenage years, when her mother gave her a brochure entitled "What Every Teen Should Know," to her college years at Brown, where she attended a one-time class on self-stimulation. Solot and Miller proceeded to ask students what they had heard about the female orgasm from their parents, friends and the media. Responses ranged...

    Washington Post Profiles Lesbian Couple Seeking To Manufacture A Deaf Child "This reduces the father to a mere inseminator, raises the prospects of donor shopping and designer genes, and turns a baby into a trophy," says FRC's Ken Connor. WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In a cover story for their Sunday magazine the Washington Post featured an 11-page profile of a lesbian couple that has done all they can to ensure their newborn son will be deaf. Sharon Duchesneau and her partner Candace McCullough, both of whom are deaf, specifically sought out a sperm donor with a history of deafness in his...
