1. Catholic League leader Bill Donohue was so incensed by Guinness’ decision to pull its sponsorship of New York’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade over organizers’ decision to bar gay groups from marching that he applied for his group to march in the city’s gay pride parade behind a banner reading “Straight Is Great.” NYC Pride’s response? See you in June, Bill.
3. Longtime gay rights advocate Vernita Gray, who became part of the first gay couple to wed in Illinois last November, has died of breast cancer at 65. Gray died in the home in which she and her wife were married.
