News Roundup: July 13, 2011

Headlines around the web – July 13, 2011 [Will be updated throughout the day]

    Hate crimes against gay, transgender people rise, report says (here via LA Times) - "The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs report says violent crimes against people in the LGBT community rose 13% in 2010, and that minorities and transgender women were more likely to be targeted."

    New York town clerk quits over gay marriage licenses (here via Reuters) - "A town clerk in western New York has resigned to avoid being forced to sign marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples, citing religious objections to same-sex marriage."

    Michael Irvin, doing the right thing (here via ESPN) - "All right, yeah, I debated whether to post on this, and I know the wackos will come out of the woodwork to call me names, etc. But the fact that Michael Irvin gave this interview for "Out" magazine, talking about his own gay brother and how he'd make sure to support the first openly gay pro athlete whenever that person decides to come out, is really remarkable. Especially considering that the culture in which jocks and ex-jocks live still allows the careless use of gay slurs as epithets."

    Is Bachmann’s Husband Also A Client? (here via Washington Blade) - "The revelation begs the question: Is Michele Bachmann’s husband also a client? Has Marcus Bachmann undergone therapy to “change” from gay to straight? The Bachmanns have lied about the clinic’s work for years and denied accusations of trying to “cure” gay people. The video from TWO proves it. In it, a counselor tells the TWO investigator that it’s possible to be “totally free” of same-sex attraction."
