1. “It’s not Pitcairn Islanders that were pushing for it. But it’s like anything else in the world. It’s happening everywhere else, so why not?” New Zealand’s tiny Pitcairn Island, population 48, has legalized same-sex marriage, but has no gay couples wanting to wed.

2. A gay Christian man who lives in Canada has family ties to Hamas and is facing deportation on November 4, what he says will be a “certain death.”

3. “Harry caught wind of the situation and confronted the older non commissioned officers, and made, quite clear, that they would be for the high jump if they gave me another second’s hassle over the issue — my sexuality.” That time Prince Harry saved a fellow British soldier from a homophobic attack.

4. Queerty on the only ride-sharing experience that includes a drag queen as the driver.

5. VIDEO OF THE DAY: Season 28 of “POV” opens tonight at 11 p.m. on GPB with “Out in the Night,” a documentary about four African-American lesbian friends convicted of assault after a man violently threatened them in New York in 2006.
