HAPPY HOUR ROUNDUP 427 - ICELAND FOR LESBIANS, MISS CALI-PHOBIA AND IOWA CONTINUES

Iceland's Emergency Interrum Prime Minister, Johanna Sigurdardottir, has just become the first openly gay person elected to head a nation by popular election. Light up a "cigar-dar" for our lucky "daughter!" A Coalition of Human Rights groups is urging the passage of the Hate Crimes Bill in Congress.

IOWA Marriage Equality began today with a bang! Here's more about getting hitched in IOWA if you're thinking of doing it. NEW YORK Senate Majority Leader, Malcolm Smith is caught between a rock and a hard place: his Governor, and leader of his party in his state, and the anti-gay pastor he considers his mentor. Here is the state-by-state evolution.

THIS looks like the natural projection of things... Viagra was always destined to become rub-able. Rex Wockner interviews Miss Cali-phobia, Prejean. Here is some great analysis of the interview.

I'm very interested to read the new book, a Terrible Splendor, about one of the most famous tennis matches in history, one of history's most pivotal LGBT events, and an incredible moment on the doorstep of World War II.

TOAST TO JOHANNA SIGURDARDOTTIR! YOU GO GURL!

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."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?

HAPPY HOUR... POSTPONED.
