I haven't been feeling especially bloggy lately, which usually means I scour the Internet for interesting gay tidbits that don't require a lot of commentary. This is today's version ...
Russian Christians have attempted to purge the Moscow River in the wake of a gay cruise that sailed those very waters.
Huh. That's an interesting approach. Because I'm sure the very worst impurity involving the Moscow River is that it touched a boat that touched gay people. No need to trifle with pollution or anything like being a steward of the earth or such nonsense. Let's get rid of gay cooties instead.
In other news, the UK Gay News provides a transcript from Persian of an interview with an exiled lesbian Irani woman. She describes the torture she endured during years of imprisonment as well as her exile both from her home country and her entire culture. It is very moving and disturbing.
You'll be amazed to learn that <gasp> gays are less safe now than ever before in Iraq.
And, finally, Orthodox Jews did some big time damage to the city of Jerusalem during a destructive temper tantrum over the gay pride parade. To the tune of $100,000. City council members are calling for the money to be repayed. Good for them.

Ledcat has been traveling this week, so tonight I'm frantically doing all the chores I promised would be completed for her return tomorrow. So I've got my brand new copy of "Pride & Prejudice" (BBC version of course) playing the DVD player while I dust and sweep and sort the accumulation of stuff that does plague any household.
The good news is that the house next door has sold to a delightful man who owns a dog and is very pleasing. Hallelujah! We are quite thrilled here at Lesbian Central. You can never have too many neighbors with dogs.
Here's some snippets from the gayiverse.
From Pam's House Blend comes word that Elizabeth Edwards will be speaking at the Alice B. Toklas Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Democratic Club Pride Breakfast this weekend in San Francisco. Pam determines that this is a huge illustration of how things have changed in the Presidential race. Last time around, mad scramble to avoid us. This time, pancakes in San Francisco. Let's see how that plays out.
Jerusalem Pride drew over 2,000 participants. And at least one bomb carried by an Orthodox Jewish man. Huh.
Japan might elect its first openly lesbian Parliament member. Her name is Kanako Otsuji.
And Judy Garland died on this day in 1969.
Hey, that reminds me ... the Munchkins are getting a star on the Walk of Fame. Many of them are like 70 years old, but they plan to be there. I heard in on Fresh Air, so you know its gotta be true.
Elizabeth just rejected Mr. Darcy's proposal. I'm such a girl.
