FEDERAL COURT UPHOLDS GAY MARRIAGE BANS IN FOUR STATES: “The march toward gay marriage across the U.S. hit a roadblock Thursday when a federal appeals court upheld laws against the practice in four states, creating a split in the legal system that increases the chances the Supreme Court will step in to decide the issue once and for all. The cases decided were from Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee.” Here’s a map of where gay marriage stands across the country. [AP]

  1. Bayan Muna joins 2010 Pride March, vows to push passage of gay rights bill

    Bayan Muna joins the annual Pride March in the Philippines for the first time today to show its solidarity with lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders (LGBTs) in their quest for recognition, tolerance and equal treatment in Philippine society.

    In his message to the LGBT community, Bayan Muna congressman Teddy Casiño vowed to work closely with LGBT groups in pushing for legislation to help address the grave inequalities that current laws have against the sector. “At the minimum, we have authored a bill that will prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, proscribe appropriate penalties for committing such, and hopefully open up more opportunities for the advance of our compatriot LGBTs,” he said.

    Casiño is the author of House Bill 1483, or the Anti-Discrimination Act of 2010 that is now pending in the House Committee on Justice.

    “We congratulate, Task Force Pride and its co-organizers, the AIDS Society of the Philippines and the Quezon City local government, for giving the much needed support to gaining more understanding of the LGBT community in the Philippines. We also take pride in the fact that Bayan Muna counts on the growing number of gays and lesbians among its members and leaders. I am also pleasantly surprised at the magnitude and depth of participation in the annual Pride March,” Casiño said.

    He added that Bayan Muna’s participation in the annual event is part of the party’s advocacy against gender discrimination and other human rights violations suffered by the LGBT community and other marginalized sectors.


  2. Opponents of gay marriage slammed

    Australia: Politicians were lampooned for their opposition to gay marriage on Saturday as hundreds of thousands of revellers crammed the streets of central Sydney on Saturday for one of the world’s premier gay and lesbian parades.

    Caricatures of Labour Prime Minister Julia Gillard in a wedding gown and opposition leader Tony Abbott in a Speedo – giant paper mache puppets with five-foot-tall heads sometimes locked in carnal clinches – were a highlight.

    Both Labour and Mr Abbott’s Liberals oppose calls for gay marriage. The federal government passed a law in 2004 to ensure that only marriages between a man and a woman can be legally recognised in Australia.
