Gay news from across the land …

The absurd …a father is suing an Arkansas library because his sons “stumbled across” the Whole Lesbian Sex Book which disturbed them greatly.  I believe the quote is that they had two sleepless nights at his house.  Hmm …

The ridiculous …Rudy Guiliani does a big and very public flipflop on civil unions.  In case you weren't keeping track, he was for them before he was against them.  Pam's House Blend has the audiotape of Rudy discussing his “for them” stance back in 2003.  When he wasn't running for President and courting the fundies.

The good …New York's Governor has filed a bill to legalize gay marriage.

The joyful …

CONCORD, N.H. — The Rev. V. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church, says he and his partner of 18 years will be among the couples taking advantage of New Hampshire's soon-to-be-signed civil unions law.

I'm not even going to spoil the joy of their announcement by contemplating how Bishop Duncan and Archbishop Akinola must be spinning in their sanctuaries …

Speaking of Nigeria …a lesbian who married four women (as in took them as her wives, not performed the ceremony) has gone in hiding because she's facing imprisonment. 

The ugly …Poland.  Censured by the EU for promoting homophobia, the Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski is speaking out in favor of repressive school based legislation that would make homosexual propaganda illegal.  Here's the best part courtesy of Europe's gay news service:

“Nobody is limiting gay rights in Poland,” Mr Kaczynski said.

“However, if we're talking about not having homosexual propaganda in Polish schools, I fully agree with those who feel this way.

“Such propaganda should not be in schools; it definitely doesn't serve youth well.

“It's not in the interests of any society to increase the number of homosexuals, that's obvious.”

Not limiting gay rights indeed. I'm planning my trip to Poland right now.
