Heh!

Wiki says that his partner is Ronan Farrow. I had no idea.

That's a powerful couple, aren't they?

Jon Lovett is Ronan's partner, this guy:

they have been together for 7 years, I think? And you are right, he totally looks like Frank Sinatra!

The Brunei government has not repealed the sharia law provisions that include stoning LGBTI people to death. The moratorium on the death penalty can be lifted at any time. LGBTI people can still be fined, whipped and jailed.

A great segment on 60 Minutes last night, about the RAINBOW Railroad:

Rainbow Railroad: The Organization Saving LGBT Citizens from Hostile Governments

For individuals in nations where being a part of the LGBT community threatens their freedom, safety and, sometimes, their lives, the Rainbow Railroad provides a way out.

You can see the segment on CBS' 60 Minutes website:

I couldn't find it on youtube, at least not yet...

Way to go Canada.

This headline actually shocked me this morning:

The Young are Regarded as the Most Tolerant Generation.
That's Why Results of this LGBTQ Survey are 'Alarming'

'Looming social crisis': The young are less accepting of LGBTQ people

In Bourges, France, is currently taking place a photo exhibit in an outdoor park, LGBT-themed, where celebrities and politicians pose with same-sex models (themselves artists etc.) in everyday situations and/or tender moments in order to show the 'loving normality' of LL or GG life.

These posters were torn and destroyed (anonymously) over the past days and nights.

Here are the sad results - the photos are very beautiful, though:
