• Georgia Equality has some questions for Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin. Namely, how did the raid on The Eagle bar make the city safer? And: “How much did this raid cost taxpayers? What is the cost per charge/violation? How many work hours went into the investigation leading up to and the execution of the raid?”

• Well isn’t his novel: Malawi’s own government says the key to fighting AIDS there is to start providing better health services to the gays. Mary Shawa, secretary for nutrition, HIV and AIDS in the president’s office: “There is a need to incorporate a human rights approach in the delivery of HIV and AIDS services to such risk groups like men who have sexual intercourse with men if we have to fight AIDS.”

• Nashville’s City Council OKs sexuality and gender discrimination protections for city employees in a 24-15-1 vote.

• Gay illusionist Derren Brown, who correctly “picked” the six winning National Lottery numbers, faces a possible investigation for describing the lotto’s sixth bonus ball as one “for women and gays.” Oooh! (In other bizarre lotto news, Bulgaria’s lottery drew the same combination of six numbers two weeks in a row.)

• The stabbing murder of transgender woman Tyli’a “Na Na Boo” Mack in D.C. (and the on-going investigation to find her killer) has local activists calling for an end to violence against the trans community — but nobody quite sure how to accomplish it.

• Ten men who got buff for their movies.

• The NYC LGBT Center names Women’s Media Center and GLAAD vet Glennda Testone its new executive director.

Arguing with Cleve Jones over his “state strategy is a losing strategy” position is fun!

• How do you make a Zac Efron calendar without creating a twink calendar? Well, you don’t.

• Not only is Jane Castor the first lady police chief of Tampa, she’s also the first lesbian one.

• Kudos to the Woodstock High School Lady Thunder hockey team in New Brunswick, awarded for standing up against taunts aimed at their two lesbian teammates.

      @Lloyd Baltazar: Your attitude is repulsive on multitudinous levels.

      If you or your spouse contracted the HIV virus after having sexual contact with one of Primatives call girls. the business is located at 1430 w Busch Blvd. in Tampa call the owner brenda and mike and tell them that Prositition is wrong! please call them and let them know 813-915-8900
      I strongly urge you to contact the Tampa Police department Att; Det Michael Victor at 231-6130 to make a police report. If your not sure if you have contracted the HIV virus contact the Hillsbourgh county Health Dept 870-4717 STD testing.
      For the vast majority of people living with HIV, preventing others from becoming infected with the virus that they carry is a primary concern. HIV positive individuals are, after all, only too aware of just how difficult it can be to live with the illness, and few would wish it on anybody else.
      This said, not all HIV positive people take the precautions that they perhaps should. Scare stories of people ‘deliberately’ or ‘recklessly’ transmitting HIV to others have appeared in the media since the epidemic first began, and some of the individuals concerned have even been criminally charged and imprisoned for their actions. But while at first it might seem obvious to prosecute someone for recklessly or intentionally infecting another with an ultimately fatal virus, this assumption, and its consequences, can present numerous problems.
