Dear Boy Scouts of America: no, fuck you.

Florida Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll responds to sexual misconduct allegations (that happen to involve another lady) by saying, “black women who look like me don’t engage in relationships like that.” Someone may want to tell her that when she says shit like that, it’s not just one person she’s attacking.

Apparently now you can hit up Target stores for all your gay-married needs!

In case you missed this: FDA approves pre-exposure prophylactic drug to protect against HIV infection.

Australian Olympic marksman complains that he can’t room with his fellow Olympian wife in London’s Olympic Village this summer, but apparently gay Olympians can just shack up willy-nilly. My heart bleeds for you, Russell Mark.

From Slate: a nice profile of the first gay couple to be married on a US military base.

And finally, the survivor of that shooting I told you about in Corpus Christi is recovering and helping police to look for her girlfriend’s murderer.
