An important Obama administration decision that could, eventually, affect many queer families in the US: http://www.hrcbackstory.org/2011/02/administration-drops-defense-of-discriminatory-doma-law/

 

Michael Signorili claims that "Congress now has a few weeks to decide if it wants to defend DOMA in court instead. If it does not, DOMA is dead."

Great news, Cejae--thanks for sharing it.  The part about the defense being taken up for anti-LGBT members of Congress is a bit terrifying, but it is much better than if the president had defended it.
