There was a legal challenge by the relgious right to the federal hate crimes law, and the judge dismissed it. A lesbian couple in Tennessee has been burned out of their home and Florida's law against gay adoptions is on trial again unless Governor Crist decides to cancel the case. In other news, an out lesbian has been picked for the Colorado supreme court and the cop who led the raid on the Stonewall Inn in 1969 has died at the age of 91. These stories and more.
