HAPPY HOUR ROUNDUP 4/23--HATE CRIMES MOVES TO THE FULL HOUSE AND GAY CONVERSIONS ARE MADE UP!

Great news from the House Judiciary Committee: The Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes bill moves forward to the Full House! Why I sometimes love Diane Feinstein--NOW JUST PASS THE UNITING AMERICAN FAMILIES ACT!

What did Shakespeare think of Marriage Equality? Happy Birthday, Bard.

Masters and Johnson made up their evidence in the iconic study about gay conversion success, Scientific American now reports. More on them here. Somebody tell these closeted gay republicans!

NEW JERSEY voters are ready for FULL Marriage Equality! Public Opinion polls released on four states that have upcoming Marriage Equality bills, votes or judgments. NEW YORK polls even HIGHER! I already posted this video by NEW YORK group Empire State Pride Agenda about Massachusetts and religious freedom. Watch it if you didn't get the chance before. IOWA's Clerks now have gender neutral Marriage Licenses, and the Attorney General is going to make sure no bigot tries any funny business on Monday.

I didn't realize that the new Stonewall Library is actually a CIRCULATING Library! How cool! Don't forget this year makes FORTY!!!

See what Miss Cali-phobia's fellow Miss U.S.A. contestants think of her answer. Miss Cali-phobe debated by Martin and Signorile on AC360 last night! Roland Martin is a moron. Signorile also popped up on TruTV this morning to discuss the Angie Zapata trial verdict in depth. And along those lines, WHY Perez should watch his mouth.

Learn more about the upcoming protest of the London NARTH/CARE Conference.

Finally, here's a "SCHOCKER!"

TOAST TO MY "HETERO" BUDDY AARON!

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:

"

In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

HEY #p2!--CALLING ALL PROGRESSIVE ALLIES!

-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…

WHAT. THE. HELL? NEW HAMPSHIRE??? (and a prop 8 update)

Okay, first let me just say CALIFORNIA can breathe easy for a few more days as San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsome convinced the Supreme Court to hold of on releasing their decision on Prop 8 a few more days until the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots is passed.  We're probably going to see it Tuesday, the following Thursday or THAT following Monday.  
NOW:  WHAT THE HELL, NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!????!
The NEW HAMPSHIRE House, which on May 6 APPROVED Marriage Equality by a vote of 178-167, has now stalled the REWRITTEN BY GOVERNOR JOHN LYNCH bill 188-186--That's right, folks, two votes.  25 members did not vote at all, and opponents of the bill failed to kill it in a 173-202 vote, but this STILL means we're waiting on NEW HAMPSHIRE to GET ITS SHIT TOGETHER!  The House passed a resolution to continue negotiating with the Senate by a vote of 207-168.  If that same number votes for the 're-re-renegotiated' bill in the next two weeks it will pass, but …
