Gay USA 4/16/14

A sweeping ruling on behalf of transgender rights from the Supreme Court of India. Ohio ordered to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples who legally wed out of state. Louisiana votes to retain its unconstitutional anti-sodomy law. And it names a best-seller as "state book." A "Christian" school in NYC stops a girl from taking her transgender boyfriend to prom. San Francisco's Pride Committee apologizes—and names Chelsea Manning an honorary grand marshal for this year's pride parade. Brunei adopts death-by-stoning for sodomy and other offenses. Happy Easter from the Vatican, busy at a UN conference blocking rights for women and gay people. Malta adopts a civil union law including adoption rights for same-sex couples. Finland honors the work of homoerotic artist Tom of Finland with postage stamps. Let's get real. Two shows to recommend: Will Eno's "The Realistic Joneses" with an all-star cast and Dan Hoyle's "The Real Americans."
