A federal judge, Edward Rubin, has ruled today that Louisiana’s ban on gay and lesbian marriage is unconstitutional. Rubin said, according to sources, that the ban “violates the due process clause and the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment, as well as the full faith and credit clause of the constitution.”

Just a few months before the Supreme Court of the United States may once again take up gay and lesbian marriage in court, one justice, Elena Kagan, made her opinion on gay marriage crystal clear. Kagan presided over the marriage of former-law clerk Mitchell Reich and Patrick Pearsall’s wedding in Maryland on Sunday. Kagan  is not the first justice to perform a same-sex wedding—Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg have presided over one in the past. [AP]

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is currently investigated whether it could offer the life-saving drug Truvada, which prevents HIV, at a significantly lower cost or even free to the city’s citizens. The drug can cost upwards of $13,000 a year for those who choose to take it, and San Francisco Supervisor David Campos hopes that he can persuade the Board of Supervisors to come up with a plan to offer the drug and prevent unnecessary new cases of HIV. “I’m sick of meeting people 18, 19, 20, 21 years old who are [HIV] positive. We know that this is not necessaryThis coming Tuesday, I will introduce a measure to allocate funds for navigators to educate patients about PrEP, and provide subsidies to San Franciscans who cannot afford the life saving medication.” [PinkNews]

Gay rights group, GLSEN, is calling on iHeartMedia CEO Robert Pittman to speak out against comments made earlier this week on its radio properties by Sean Hannity after he made comments saying that he should be allowed to teach his kids that being gay isn’t normal. “This is my problem with liberals. Here’s where my fear goes with all of this – you guys want to tell parents what they can and cannot do. For example, is it going to become illegal if a parent teaches the politically correct view that being gay is not normal?Some people disagree on the gay lifestyle, because of religious views,” he told listeners. “If they teach they’re kids, is the government going to come in one day and say ‘No, that’s wrong. That’s immoral’?”

GLSEN fired back with an open letter, read it after the jump…

The latest from Bluewater gives Liza Minnelli the comic book treatment. Female Force: Liza Minnelli, a new comic book about the life of iconic singer, dancer, and actress Liza Minnelli was created by Michael L. Frizell.  The 24-page comic book with art by Rafael Cordeiro will have four collectible covers by artists Keaton Alexander Kohl, Michael Troy, and Cordeiro. The comic will be released this week in print and on multiple digital platforms. “Drawing this book was a unique experience. A biography is a challenge for any artist, because you have to delve into someone else´s life, interpret it and bring those memories back through graphical representations. This task is even more challenging when you´re speaking about a person as legendary as Liza Minnelli,” said interior artist Cordeiro.

You can purchase it here.
