5 LGBT things you need to know today, Jan. 5

1. “It ought be a local decision. I mean, a state decision. The state decided. The people of the state decided. But it’s been overturned by the courts, I guess.” Former Florida governor and rumored 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush is not exactly thrilled with the state’s gay marriage ban being overturned.

2. The American DVD cover for the movie “Pride” (which screened at last year’s Out On Film festival) appears to have had all references to any gay content removed.

3. “It is time we learn to accept each other for who we truly are. Being seen, heard, and truly loved as our authentic selves is something we all want, and something we all deserve.” The guitarist for My Chemical Romance dedicates his new song to Leelah Alcorn, the transgender teen who recently took her own life.

4. Meanwhile, a gay dad writes about Alcorn, “the Matthew Shepard of our time.”

5. VIDEO OF THE DAY: Freedom To Marry will air a series of pro-marriage equality ads like this one on TV this week in Texas.
