5 LGBT things you need to know today, May 13

1. The Wall Street Journal reports that some employers are telling gay workers that they must wed in order to keep health-care coverage for their partners.

2. Sweden has a novel approach to warding off Russian submarines from their waters. They’ve created a device called the “gay sailor” that gets dropped in the water and emits anti-homophobia Morse code with messages like “This way if you are gay.” The device features a neon, flashing sign of a dancing sailor wearing nothing but a cap and small white briefs. And if someone is trolling the media with a fake story, they’ve done a bang-up job of it because this has been picked up by over 140 other outlets.

3. PrideSource has an interview with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Fonda says a very famous gay actor once proposed to her and that she used to hang out in gay bars with Harvey Milk.

4. Heads-up to any hate groups out there—never forget to renew your domain name. Because some enterprising individual might scoop it up and direct it to a hardcore gay porn website.

5. VIDEO OF THE DAY: A trailer is up for ABC’s new sitcom “The Real O’Neals,” produced by Dan Savage and centering on a gay teen.
