"Gay life: Challenge and change"

My friend Sharone sent me a link to this CNN article. There's not any new ground covered here, but I think any story in the mainstream media that puts a human face on GLBT issues is worth reading.

This article features a family with two mothers who moved to Massachusetts to get legally married but recently decided to move back home to Oklahoma and face serious discrimination issues.

The article also details the struggles of a gay soldier who, after serving in Iraq, came out to his commander and was discharged. To wait until AFTER his deployment to Iraq was complete speaks volumes to how committed he was to serve the nation. Yeah, those are the soldiers we want to have kicked out of the military.

Anyway, this was some good humanized coverage of some important GLBT issues and is worth checking out.
