Gay Star News Round-up: “Pariah” gets five NAACP nods; Rick Perry out; and marriage equality closer in Washington

Awards season is in full flight!

Today, nominations for both the GLAAD Media Awards and the NAACP Image Awards were unveiled. I already wrote about GLAAD in a separate post and wrote about the NAACP awards for Gay Star News.

Pariah, a movie I think is outstanding, got five nominations including outstanding film, outstanding independent film and nods for cast members Adepero Oduye, Kim Wayans and Charles Parnell. Read more HERE.

Also did two political stories today. The first is on Texas Gov. Rick Perry dropping out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination. He’s been no friend of the LGBT community during the campaign. Read more HERE.

The other story is on marriage equality getting close to passage in the state of Washington. State Sen. Jim Kastama has decided to support a bill that would make Washington the seventh state in the nation to allow gay marriage. He acknowledged the decision could cost him politically. Read more HERE.
