(San Francisco, CA, August 28, 2012)—The California State Senate today voted 26 to 10 to approve a bill that would ensure that women in same-sex relationships and single women can access fertility services on the same terms as women in different-sex relationships. Assembly Bill 2356, authored by Assemblymember Nancy Skinner and co-sponsored by Equality California (EQCA) and the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), would allow women using known donors to access certain fertility procedures that are less expensive and more effective.

The court overturned a federal district court decision ordering the release of the video.
The North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance was sued last year, but won the initial battle. The lawsuit was brought on by three men who were disqualified as players because they are not “gay enough”. It would appear that NAGAAA has a rule stating that teams can only have two non-gay players per team. The three men claimed to be gay, but one is married to a woman and the other two are bisexual.
When I first heard about this lawsuit, I only skimmed the article. I wasn’t overly interested in the dealings of a sports team, even if this was a gay sports team. This article, however, really piqued my interest because of the judge’s ruling and statement. Continue reading
