Quearborn & Perversion: An Early History of Lesbian & Gay Chicago Showtimes & Reviews | Chicago Reader | Movie Times & Reviews:
"As a participant in the first-ever gay pride march in 1970, I was one of many background sources interviewed by Ron Pajak as he assembled this 2008 documentary (in partnership with the Chicago History Museum). The title refers to the nickname given to Dearborn and Division when that intersection was the hub of Chicago’s gay nightlife in the 1950s and '60s, but Pajak covers a much longer historical arc, beginning in the 1920s, when a German immigrant to Chicago founded America's first gay rights group, and concluding in the early 1970s, when the city’s first gay community center opened in Old Town."

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?
