Victory!: Gay Dads Prevail In Case Of Anti-Gay Surrogate Mom Comments (0)

After a high-profile court battle, an American-Spanish gay male couple has won a case against a Thai surrogate mother, a woman who agreed to bear a child but reneged when she discovered it was for gay parents.

Via the BBC:

Bangkok's Family Court ruled the legal guardian of the child is Gordon Lake, her biological father from the US.

The child was born before a Thai ban on commercial surrogacy was imposed.

Correspondents say that the case was complicated by the fact that Thai law does not recognise same-sex marriages.

"The court has granted legal custody of [the child] Carmen Lake to Gordon Lake, my client, and [said] that my client is her only guardian," Mr Lake's lawyer Rachapol Sirikulchit said.

The case had been dragging on since January 2015.

Should you so desire, you may contribute to the couple's legal fund here.

Did D&G Walk Out Of amfAR Benefit Over IVF Speech? Comments (0)

Last year, Dolce & Gabbana—who have a history of being against gay marriage and gay parenting—kicked off an uproar over grotesque comments slamming IVF as resulting in synthetic children. Many gay couples use IVF, a fact that should not be lost on the elite duo. They eventually apologized, but not before being publicly scolded by the likes of Elton John and Madonna.

Now, the Post is reporting that D&G stormed out of a glitzy amfAR event when the HIV/AIDS charity's head, Kevin Robert Frost, spoke about IVF:

“My husband and I have twin boys,” CEO Frost said in a speech in front of a crowd including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Riccardo Tisci. “I realize that people have different ideas of what is a family, but I want to assure you that there’s nothing artificial about my family. And there’s nothing synthetic about our twin boys.”

“Dolce and Gabbana got up and left the room,” says a witness, who added, “Everyone was astonished.”

A rep for D&G later denied the eyewitness account.

Janet Jackson's Latest Creative Reason For Exiting A Tour: She's Pregnant? Comments (0)

Gay fave Janet Jackson seems to be announcing she's pregnant in an emotional new view posted in order to tell fans her Unbreakable Tour is kaput.

But is she saying she's pregnant at 49, or is she saying she's planning to get pregnant or even adopt?

Either way, I feel sorry for her fans, who over the years have had to endure a lot of stop-and-start touring. But if your favorite diva is cutting and running from a tour you were dying to see, this is definitely a good excuse.

Congrats to the aspiring mom.

Gay Adoption Legal In All 50 States Comments (0)

Thanks to a ruling yesterday by a federal judge striking down Mississippi's ban on same-sex couples adopting children, gay adoption is now legal across the U.S.

The challenge to Mississippi's law has led to a very happy day for all would-be gay parents.

Roberta Kaplan, lead attorney for the plaintiffs, said in a statement:

Two sets of our clients have waited many (almost 9 and 16) years to become legal parents to the children they have loved and cared for since birth. We hope that it should finally be clear that discrimination against gay people simply because they are gay violates the Constitution in all 50 states, including Mississippi.

All of these ridiculously anti-gay laws states are passing—including the recent spate of religious freedom laws—are truly despicable and do have a negative impact on people's lives, but they are ultimately, unintentionally leading to greater freedom as they're ruled unconstitutional.

The haters are making our rights clearer and stronger.
