– At The Daily Beast, Chris Geidner asks, “Is Justice Ginsburg Risking the Future of the Supreme Court?

– Mariela Castro, an LGBT activist in Cuba and daughter of President Raul Castro, spoke in the US recently.

– Colin Powell is a supporter of marriage equality, apparently.

– The US Air Force Academy graduated its first openly gay cadets this week.
