Gay Star News Round-up: Wanda Sykes wonders about Santorum; Sweden’s transgender law; Mayors for marriage and more!

Wanda Sykes is a very funny woman – and a very smart woman too.

She was on fire last night on The Late Show With Jay Leno when she was asked about the Republican field of presidential candidates.

Of Rick Santorum she said: “He is so anti-gay, it makes you wonder a little bit,’ she said, hinting that Santorum might be gay himself. ‘You protest a little to much my friend. A little too much.’

‘If you really believe that homosexuality is a sin and we’e all going to hell then why the fuss?’ she wondered. ‘You think I’m going to hell then you’ve already won. Just shut the hell up and let God take care of it.’

Go over to Gay Star News to read what else Wanda had to say about Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry.

Also today, I did a piece on a law in Sweden that requires transgender people in that country to be sterilized if they want to be recognized legally as the gender they have transitioned to. A 21 year old named Love Georg Elfvelin has made a moving video that really personalizes the controversy. Read the story HERE.

Another transgender topic I wrote about is the formal signing in Massachusetts of a new law protecting the civil rights of transgender citizens in that state. Read more HERE.

And finally, see my story about a group of high-profile U.S. mayors including LA’s Villaraigosa and NYC’s Bloomberg, uniting to speak out in favor of the legalization of same-sex marriage. Read all about it HERE.
