'LGBT inclusive speeches in record number at Democratic National Convention' and other Monday midday news briefs



DNC Treasurer Andrew Tobias, one of the openly gay speakers from last night. 

 Speeches with LGBT content #DNC2012 - 11 speeches last night at the Democratic Convention with LGBT inclusive content! Sweet! It took a looooong time for this day to come and I am so glad to see it. I want more of it. And it's something for the folks at GoProud to remember. How many speeches with positive LGBT content did they see at the Republican Convention?

 Christian Post runs article lauding Paul Cameron’s fraudulent claims - A hot mess. Amongst other things, Paul Cameron believes that gay men stuff gerbils up their rectums. It's mess like that which gives Christianity a bad name.

Now now. Didn't one GOProud spokesman admit he doesn't care about LGBT inclusivity? Only that he gets to be filthy rich?

Granted, I'm not clear how his being filthy rich actually helps any of the rest of us, but I suspect we're not supposed to think about that.

Maybe in another 12-16 years, we won't be hearing any speeches that are LGBT inclusive because it will be a given.
