BRITNEY SPEARS Old “friends” of the pop star — former manager Sam Lutfi and lawyer Jon Eardley — have been given court orders to stay away from Spears. [People]

BRITAIN Politico jokes about killing Miss California Carrie Prejean. Murder jokes, evidently, don’t go over well with everyone. [Telegraph]

WHAT DIVORCE? Amid rumors they’re splitting, Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker instead surprise the world that they’re expecting twin girls via surrogate. [E!]

NEPAL Born a girl, 17-year-old Bimala now goes by Suman and identifies as a boy. She’s been in a civil union with her girlfriend for three years, and now they want to get married. Enter: Conflict. [My Republica]

ZIMBABWE In an impoverished country where President Robert Mugabe says gays are “worse than dogs and pigs,” the queer community is lobbying for constitutional protections. In Zimbabwe, being gay isn’t a crime, but sex between two men is. [Zimbabwe Times]

SWITZERLAND The previously enjoyed sport of nude hiking could now net you a $200 fine. [CDN]

SLIP & FALL Graham Norton fell down and broke two ribs at home after the Baftas. We’re gonna go with the “too much celebrating” excuse. [Telegraph]

MOVIES Distributor TLA hunts for ways to survive the economy. [Advocate]

HIGHER ED “On the heels of a controversy over student-fee funding for a gay group at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, two gay students have been elected president and vice president for the next school year.” [Colorado Gazette

      That’s bad news about TLA. If they don’t survive the recession, there are very few sources to find queer cinema. Queer book stores, coffee bars and now TLA. We serioulsy need to support our businesses more.

      @John Santos: Um, not that I want TLA to go out of business or anything, but a lot of the films it distributes are utter crap. I’ll support good, innovative queer cinema, but if people want skin flicks they can just hop on the internet for a few minutes.

      Based on your precious definitions, no doubt. I prefer to support queer businesses, rather than bitch about them.

      but if people want skin flicks they can just hop on the internet for a few minutes

      I wish you had done just that, rather than post your reply. Clearly, you’re in desperate need of some “alone” time to work that stick out of your ass.

      Alan Duncan stole my thoughts.

      Openly gay people in Zimbabwe are brave.

      TLA is one of the best places for gay media.

      If he identifies as a boy, why are you using “she?”

      @Nicholas: Exactly. Queerty writers, we’ve been over this again and again on multiple articles. It’s really, really easy. If someone identifies as a woman, use “she” and “her.” If someone identifies as a man, use “he” and “him.” Not rocket science, okay?

      I get the feeling that Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker despise each other
