News from Russia

After spending a very nice day yesterday in New York for the express purpose of hanging out with some fellow gay bloggers and sympathetic straight folks, it was a little disturbing to read this. As completely screwed up as I tend to feel our own country is, it is a comfort to know we have progressed past this, though I tend to think our leaders would not be averse to seeing gays kept in their place like this, if they thought they could get away with it.

As it is, we still have plenty of ground to make up, as friend Mike points out in this post. I realize we have come a long way from when I was coming up, and judges would throw out assault cases brought by gays who were gay bashed, because they were asking for it by looking gay, but there is still a long way to go.
