Annise Parker, mayor of the largest city in Texas and the fourth largest city in the United States, had to go to California to marry her longtime partner Kathy Hubbard.

Another US Anti-Gay Group Head Speaks In Jamaica

This is a cross-post from Bartholomew’s Notes on Religion
From J. Lester Feder at Buzzfeed:
An anti-gay activist from Massachusetts has warned Jamaicans that repealing the country’s sodomy provision would end freedom of speech and lead to a surge of sexually transmitted diseases during a rally in Kingston.

Nauseous Menk

So the Islamic preacher Ismail Menk is in the UK now. However, it appears that his university tour has been cancelled.
This is probably a good thing for the poor man. He might be in proximity to homosexuals on a university campus. And he doesn’t like that one bit. Listen to this [...]

Ismail Menk on Homosexuality – “Worse than animals”

Ismail Menk is a somewhat popular preacher from Zimbabwe. He certainly has fans in the UK. Among them one finds the Tayyibun Institute, an East London group with a record of promoting vicious hate preachers. This includes a notably nasty online “teacher” roster.
Tayyibun is touring Menk around the UK this month. [...]

Some Contrarian thoughts on Russia and the Gays

This is a guest post by Paul Canning

Is Russia’s ‘remove kids from gay parents’ bill the straw that will break Russian anti-gay forces? When will Western media finally report that the Russian version of America’s Christianist anti-gays have Russian opposition?
Last week the news came out that a long hinted at new anti-gay bill had been introduced [...]

Three missing gay stories: Iran, Turkey, Belarus

This is a cross-post by Paul Canning

It’s Russia, Russia, Russia when it comes to ‘foreign gay news’ these days. But it’s a much bigger and badder gay world out there.
Although the video footage of gays being tormented by Russian Nazis is mainstream news, worse footage from Jamaica is failing to attract anything like the same attention. [...]
