“After what has happened, and as human rights campaigners, it seemed barbaric to us to have [the Tel Aviv delegation] taking part,” Antonio Poveda, of Spain’s Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transexuals and Bisexuals, told the UK’s Guardian newspaper. “We don’t just defend our own little patch.”
Agassi added his voice to those of the Tel Aviv group, which accused the Madrid Pride March organizers of inappropriate political activism. “It’s terrible that the organizers made such an awful decision, especially since Israel is so supportive of gay rights, but I’m proud of my choice [to withdraw],” Agassi said. “Madrid was supposed to be my first pride event outside of Israel, and I was so excited about it, but I have no regrets. I will never forget where I came from. Israel is and will always be my home, and I will forever support and stand up for my country.”Said Michael Lucas (you know he would get a word in edgewise!): “Jonathan and my crew filmed two movies in Spain just two months ago,” he added. “I don’t think we will return.”

“At 38, Duffy has been named one of the genuinely young members of the RNC's not-so ‘Young Guns,’” reports HuffPo. “With establishment help, including endorsements from Tim Pawlenty's Freedom First PAC and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Duffy has raised more than $600,000 and is expected to to beat his opponent, tea-party backed Dan Mielke (author of perhaps the most monotonous, sleep-inducing, uninspired attack video ever created), in September's Republican primary.”
If Duffy wins, he would likely face Wisconsin state senator Julie Lassa, the expected Democratic nominee for the seat to be vacated by Rep. David Obey, a Democrat who announced his retirement in May.

A 19-year-old man is dead and two other people are recovering after a shooting at San Francisco's 40th Pride celebrations. The incident took place at around 11.30pm on Saturday evening in the Castro district.
The Castro has been a popular place for gay men and lesbians since the '60s.

The gunman was arrested at the scene. Police have stated it was not a gay hate crime and it was likely the gunman knew at least one of the victims.
