The American Family Association has suggested that people not open letters sent to the organization using the new stamp dedicated to gay-rights icon Harvey Milk, and to instead mark the mail return to sender. So here’s what you do. You send donations to the organization in the mail using this stamp. If they cash the check, call them out on it. (ht Mediaite)

Nigeria’s new anti-gay law makes it illegal to meet with other gay people

  • 38 the number of countries on the African continent that have discriminatory laws targeting gay people—roughly 70 percent of the continent. Nigeria took another step on this front Monday by passing a law, the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act, which outlaws LGBTQ people from even holding a meeting in public. People who break the law face up to 14 years in prison. source

We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?
"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson • Talking about judging people in a recent interview for GQ. If the quote makes it sound like he’s equating being gay with being a terrorist, that’s because Robertson, the patriarch of the “Duck Dynasty” clan, sees homosexuality as immoral. During the interview, he also said this jaw-dropper: “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus.” So yeah, he’s currently suspended from his “Duck Dynasty” gig.

Never in a million years would I intentionally hurt another person. Yet, here I sit having hurt so many by failing to acknowledge the pain some affiliated with Exodus International caused, and by failing to share the whole truth about my own story. My good intentions matter very little and fail to diminish the pain and hurt others have experienced on my watch. The good that we have done at Exodus is overshadowed by all of this.
Alan Chambers, former president of Exodus International • Apologizing to the LGBT community in a new letter posted on the official Exodus International website ahead of a new Chambers family interview with Lisa Ling which will air on Thursday night. Alan Chambers has apparently decided to close Exodus International, citing his changing beliefs and recognition of the irreparable harm the group has done, and is taking quite a bit of flack over the decision. source

Around 30 arrested at Moscow gay rights rally
Reuters: Around 30 pro- and anti-gay activists were arrested on Saturday after defying Moscow’s ban on gay rights demonstrations.
Russia’s parliament has given preliminary approval to legislation which bans ‘homosexual propaganda’ which critics say would in effect ban gay rights demonstrations. Saturday’s arrests occurred at the same time as Ukraine held its first ever gay rights rally which was protected by police.

The Lavender Scare is REALLY important. Watch this terrific trailer here and think about funding —> http://hypr.vc/1du1le

"A central character in the film is Dr. Franklin Kameny, who was an astronomer working for the U.S. Army when he was summarily fired just because he was gay. But unlike the thousands before him, Frank challenged his dismissal. This film will be a tribute to Frank and the other early leaders of the movement, whose sacrifices and commitment made the world a better place for generations of LGBT people who followed.”
