So what do you need to know today? Here you go:
- Not content with allowing Tennessee to grab the top spot for anti-gay bullying acceptance, Missouri has advanced their own version of the "Don't Say Gay" bill. This is what happens when Rick Santorum wins your primary.
- Did Barack Obama write a love poem to his male mentor? WingNut Daily has all the proof you can make up that the president is a "sexually confused individual." These folks will stop at nothing.
- Is today's Invisible Children "Cover the Night" activity meant to compete with GLSEN's Day of Silence?

- Are the secrets to understanding the American teenager contained in a huge database of text messages, photos, and IMs sent by young Texans?
- Will a professional hockey player come out within the next two years? Toronto Maple Leafs owner Brian Burke thinks there's a good chance.
- Focus on the Family has won a board hearing to put a measure on the ballot to legalize discrimination against LGBT people in Colorado. Didn't this already happen once before and the Supreme Court ruled it was unconstitutional?
