What Led to Jason Mattison’s Brutal Murder? … Judge Says Due Process Trumps DOMA

ON OUR GAYDAR — News, notes, clicks, and quips from around the web.


→ Jason Mattison Jr., a gay 15-year-old Baltimore sophomore, found dead in his aunt’s home, “raped, gagged with a pillowcase, stabbed repeatedly in the head and throat, and shoved into an upstairs closet.” His death leaves a family in mourning, and asking endless questions.

→ DOMA isn’t enough to let the federal government off in granting spousal benefits for Brad Levenson and Tony Sears, who married in California before Prop 8, declares a judge, which ordered the government to pay up on the cost difference in insuring the plaintiff’s partner independently.

Live-tweeting of today’s mark-up of the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act.

→ Silvano Orsi, who says gay UAE Sheikh Falah al-Nahyan assaulted him in a hotel in 2003, is continuing his legal battle after Swiss courts acquitted his alleged attacker. Orsi is headed to the European Court of Human Rights because of the “cover up.”


→ No surprise here: Twilight‘s big draw are the massive, bulging chests … of the men.

→ Which explains why a naked Kellan Lutz entertained an eager male fan in a spa.

GLAD files suit to keep Arizona’s state employees with domestic partnership benefits.

→ HRC wants to make sure you called your rep today re: ENDA.

      The Arizona case is Lambda Legal, not GLAD.

      Wow, poor Jason. Hope his family is investigated to find out if there was neglect there that delivered Jason to his killer.

      Whoa, did Queerty just mention the HRC without an accompanying snide remark?

      Yeah, GLAD only works in New England. Way to read the article you’re linking to, Queerty.
