In happier news….


Agence France-Presse (AFP) reports that an NGO called LGBT Forum Progres has been launched in the Balkan nation of Montenegro.

Pink News reports that a court in Budapest, Hungary, has overturned a police decision to limit or ban that city’s Pride parade, scheduled for June 18.

Time.com reports that a brewery in Mexico has introduced the “world’s first gay beer.” Of course, the beer itself doesn’t have a sexual orientation, it’s just that the brewers want gay people to drink it. It sounds tasty to me. The headline writer on the Time story deserves a little knuckle rap, though, for playing fast and loose with the superlative “first.” In fact, plenty of beer brands marketed to gay people have come before. In 2005, for example, the Church-Wellesley Village Business Improvement Area launched Alexander Wood Lager in Toronto’s Church St gay bars.  

I love it when professional athletes come out. The Australian has a cool piece about openly gay former professional rugby player Ian Roberts. Check him out.
