Orlando Expects Huge Turnout From Gay Couples For Domestic Partner Registry

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspiration

Score one for the home team!

Orlando's City Clerk Office expects to see a rush of same sex couples next month when a new domestic partnership registry goes into effect.

Orlando became the first city in Central Florida to recognize same sex couples. All 16 appointments for the registry's opening day have already been booked.

While the registry doesn't offer the full benefits of a civil union or marriage, couples will be able to have hospital visitation rights, health care decision making privileges and funeral arrangement rights.

Commissioner Patty Sheehan stated "it's not as many rights as marriage, but it helps couples during very difficult times." Sheehan is expected to sign the registry with her partner Jocelynn White.

We're glad to see cities move one step closer to equality. Yay Orlando!

gay veteran puts mitt romney in his place

Right on!

During GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's stop in New Hampshire today, gay veteran Bob Garon totally put Mitt in his place!

While at his NH campaign stop, Mitt sat down at a table next to Garon and shouted "Vietnam veteran!"

At that point, Garon questioned Romney about New Hampshire's gay marriage law, and he asked the presidential candidate if he supported a repeal of the law, which "allows same-sex couples to get married."

Here's what Romney had to say in response:

Now, we're thrilled to announce that an analysis of recent population trends indicates that "numbers of gays and lesbians adopting children has NEARLY TRIPLED in the past decade!"

Here's what Miami attorney Elizabeth Schwartz, who's coordinated 100+ gay adoptions in the past year, had to say about it:

SLDN Filing Lawsuit To Secure Equal Benefits For Spouses Of Gay Troops!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal Matters

sldn filing lawsuit for equal rights in military

The repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) was a major step in the right direction…now let's finish the job!

Back in July, we were disgusted to learn that even though DADT was being repealed, gays in the military would still not receive the same benefits for their same-sex partners as straight couples.

Now, the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) is planning to file a lawsuit in federal court by the end of the month, in an effort to secure the same rights/benefits for same-sex couples that are given to straight couples.

The lawsuit will go against the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and it claims that the "federal Defense of Marriage Act violates the Fifth Amendment right to due process, in what the group says will be the first case of its kind."

Here's what executive director of SLDN Aubrey Sarvis had to say about the lawsuit:
