Hate crimes, DADT, now... marriage? I've ready a half a dozen "What will the gays do next?" articles in mainstream media sources, and the gays with big media access are telling them the next goal is marriage, even though it hasn't been waiting patiently for DADT repeal to get passed. The Washington Post doesn't mention ENDA until the third-to-last paragraph in this two-page article, the Wall Street Journal gives it one sentence.... Otherwise, we are to assume that federal LGBT legislation is finished because DOMA repeal isn't happening for a while and marriage will happen either in the courts or the states.
That isn't a criticism of the gays, just an acknowledgement that straight "support" of gay people, especially straight people who see themselves as completely cut off from questions of sexuality and gender, is generally focused on getting rid of the most obvious markers of discrimination, chiding the few monsters like the WBC that make asses of themselves, and sweeping everything else under the rug. Quality of life issues, things that take money and time and have little to no glamor involved, as well as fighting against subtler forms of homophobia, transphobia, and sexual and gender policing, are things that actual LGBT people will have to push for.
Anyway, something that's being reported on in the rubric of "What next?" is the formation of an LGBT subsidiary of Media Matters, which will be called Equality Matters. The NY Times refers to marriage as the "holy grail" in the article and discusses at length (but it does give part of a sentence to ENDA!), which is interesting considering they only found one gay person who was willing to say that marriage was all that mattered, David Brock of Media Matters.
In fact, Brock pretty much says what we already knew, that "full equality" is just code for same-sex marriage:
