Luxembourg Closer to Legalize Equal Marriage and Adoption

Luxembourg moved one step closer today to legalizing gay marriage and adoption by same-sex couples.

The tiny European country's parliament has passed a bill which is expected to be voted before summer. The vote will also come at a time when the country has an openly gay Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel, and Deputy Prime Minister, Etienne Schneider, serving at the same time.

A survey conducted last year revealed 83% of people in Luxembourg support same-sex marriage.

If passed, Luxembourg will be the 11th European country to recognize same-sex marriage following Belgium, Denmark, France, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

Example or normal?

Anton Hysén (1990) is an English born, Swedish footballer who plays in the National Premier Soccer League for Myrtle Beach FC. He is a former member of the Swedish national under-17 association football team.

Hysén came out as gay to the Swedish football magazine Offside in March 2011. He scored one for equality in sports when he kicked down the closet door three years ago and revealed he was gay.

Hysén continues to blaze a trail in U.S. soccer started by Robbie Rogers, who made history last May when he became the first openly gay major league soccer player by signing with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The First Openly Gay Black MP in Africa

Zakhele Mbhele has become the first openly gay black MP to be elected in the continent of Africa.

This week, Mr Mbhele, 29, has been officially sworn in as a Member of South Africa’s Parliament. He represents Democratic Alliance, the country’s main opposition.

He said: "I know what it means as a historical milestone but I’m not walking around thinking of myself as the first openly gay black MP in Africa or singularly defining myself by it".

The new MP also believes the South African Government should have publicly condemned Nigeria and Uganda for earlier this year passing tougher anti-gay laws.

Remember that South Africa became the first and so far only country in Africa to legalise marriage rights for same-sex couples in 2006.

Philadelphia Mayor will perform Gay Weddings

Michael Nutter, the Philadelphia's Mayor, will perform same-sex weddings at City Hall on Friday.

Dozens of gay and lesbian couples in the US state of Pennsylvania rushed this week to obtain marriage licences, as a judge struck down its same-sex marriage ban.

There is a three-day waiting period for marriage there, so despite there being no defence of the ban, weddings won’t start there until Friday.

Congrats to all newlyweds!

Supporting Carlotta

Carlotta Trevisan, an Italian mother, posted on Facebook a stock photograph of two women kissing in support of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.  

Facebook asked her to remove this image, which it said broke rules regarding nudity and pornography.

When she refused, she was told her account would be suspended for violating the community’s standards.

It's inexplicable that there is still censorship on social networks!

Judge Strikes Down Pennsylvania Same-Sex Marriage Ban

A federal judge has ruled that the latter’s law prohibiting same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

In the latest of a string of marriage equality victories, U.S. District Judge John E. Jones struck down the Keystone State’s 1996 state law defining marriage solely as a union between a man and a woman, saying it violates the U.S. Constitution.

Pennsylvania, unlike many other states, had not written the ban into its state constitution but only into statute. A suit brought on behalf of state residents by the American Civil Liberties Union, its Pennsylvania affiliate, and private attorneys claimed that the ban violated the guarantees of equal protection and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and Judge Jones agreed.

Pennsylvania attorney general Kathleen Kane refused to defend the ban, but Gov. Tom Corbett brought in lawyers to take up the defense. If Corbett does not appeal, Pennsylvania would be the 19th state with marriage equality.

Gulf War veteran David Bucher has married his long term partner Bruce Moats at the US Naval Academy, making them the first same-sex couple to do so in its chapel.

Naval Academy Chaplain Lieutenant John Connolly presided over the ceremony on Saturday in which Bucher, 49, and Moats, 50, married.

The ceremony consisted of formal prayers, a reading from the book of Corinthians and the US Navy Hymn.

Stoned Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris is wearing nothing but a bowtie and a discreetly placed top hat on the cover of the issue of Rolling Stone. 

The biggest openly gay male star in Hollywood history is starring as the titular transsexual German glam rocker in Broadway's Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a role for which he lost enough weight to give him an eight-pack and a few light-headed afternoons.

BREAKING NEWS: Gay Couples Can Marry in Arkansas Today

Same-sex couples can marry in the State of Arkansas today. 

There is no waiting period. The federal judge who ruled for marriage equality Friday night refused to grant a stay.

It is expected that the appellate court or SCOTUS will issue a stay some time this weekend until the Supreme Court rules on the issue. 

But for now, anyone in Arkansas and neighboring states who can drive to Eureka Springs, Arkansas which is open at 9:00 AM on Saturday can be married, for a few hours at least.

Arkansas is a very conservative Southern State, also the home of Bill Clinton, he was Governor there. 

More than half of Gays are still in the Closet at Work

The poll by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) found that 53% of LGBT employees are not out at work.

A quarter also said they continue to hear offensive comments such as “that’s so gay”, and one in five said they had actively looked for a new job because their work environment was not accepting.

The study notes that despite many employers now offering support for LGBT staff, and a shift in attitudes across the US, the number has barely changed in the past five years.

“It’s not enough to simply implement inclusive policies — those policies need to be augmented by training and accountability, and [leaders] need to be on the lookout for unconscious bias,” said Deena Fidas, director of HRC’s Workplace Equality Program.

81% of the non-LGBT respondents said their LGBT colleagues “should not have to hide who they are at work”, less than 50% said they would be comfortable hearing them talk about their dating lives.

As well as many LGBT employees not being out at work, 35% said they had actively lied about their personal lives. “Employees are getting married without telling their coworkers for fear of losing social connections, or they’re not transitioning even though they know they need to for fear of losing their jobs,” said Fidas.

Spain land of artists

Pablo Picasso's anti-civil war masterpiece "Guernica", one of the world's most iconic paintings, served as a backdrop to a dance performance for the first time.

About 80 people sat on the floor or stood as Josue Ullate, a bare chested dancer in black tights, jumped and leapt in front of the large black-and-white canvas at Madrid's Reina Sofia Museum.

The 20-year-old performed "Quiebro", a piece lasting about five minutes and inspired by a song written by late flamenco singer Enrique Morente that mixes modern ballet with traditional Spanish dance, two times as part of International Dance Day celebrations.

It took organisers over a year of talks to get permission of Ullate to perform in front of the painting, which used images of distorted figures -- human and animal -- to represent the horrors of war.

Picasso created "Guernica" as a commission for Spain's Republican government to represent the country at the 1937 World Fair in Paris, as Spain writhed in a bloody civil war started by future dictator General Francisco Franco.

The painting was transferred to Madrid in 1981 from New York's Museum of Modern Art, where it had been deposited on a long-term loan by Picasso until democracy was restored in Spain.

Currently, this painting is one of the most visited places in Spain.
