[ASIDE:] Covering the "gay" news beat has never been my thing; I'm just not that good at pumping out blog posts about each news story that comes out. Certain things fall through the cracks, and I'm more likely to give you my opinion on the topics I'm personally interested in. As we've grown, I'm noticing that several of our new contributors seem to be of the same blog-type. Every Wednesday or so I'll be throwing out one of these news roundups for some items we haven't talked about here at The Bilerico Project. Feel free to leave post ideas and links to other stories in the comments - we'll keep an eye on them and one of us might use something!
