• A (mostly) Muslim soccer team in France will play an all-gay team after all. There just simply a “misunderstanding.”

• David Burk, the Illinois teacher who made the “black faggot” comment to his class? He’s been issued a “warning.”

• Activist Peter Tatchell is furious that after meeting with homophobic reggae artist Buju Banton, San Francisco’s activists (including Michael Petrelis) gave the all-clear for one of his concerts to go ahead last night. Others were upset too: A small protest was held outside the concert. And then: Someone sprayed pepper gas at the show.

• GOP chief Michael Steele’s blog is losing the sexy title “What Up?”
