ObamENDA & Tutu's Heaven

Week of July 21, 2014

An executive order from U.S. President Barack Obama creates anti-bias employment protections for LGBT people in the federal workforce -- without the religious exemptions many advocates worried would be added in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling. Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder revealed the administration’s plan if and whenever a marriage equality case reaches the high court.

Australian Olympic swimmer <a href="">Ian Thorpe</a> found the water in the coming out pool was just fine, and newly-minted NFL football rookie <a href="">Michael Sam</a> was gay visibility's most valuable player when he accepted the ESPN television network's Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

South Africa's preeminent representative of reconciliation and Nobel Prize winner <a href="">Archbishop Desmond Tutu</a> prophesizes that there is Pride beyond the pearly gates.

And in <i><a href="">NewsWrap</a></i>: HIV/AIDS researchers and activists become victims of the Ukraine-Russia conflict; U.S. judges consider marriage equality in Oklahoma, Florida, Utah and Colorado; Croatian couples win almost-equality; Malawi cuts costs by ignoring same-gender sex; more news reported this week by Michael LeBeau and Sarah Sweeney (produced by Steve Pride).
