Much happened in LGBT news in 2010 and LGBT bloggers have weighed in. Here’s a very subjective wrap-up of the 2010 LGBT wrap-ups that I found interesting:
- Advocate.com identified its “Newsmakers of the Year” with a list including Rep. Patrick Murphy (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal), Constance McMillen (denied high school prom), Dan Savage and Joel Burns (“It Gets Better” videos).
- Andres Duque at his Blabbeando blog wraps up his Latino LGBT news highlights in four separate blog posts, including a Mexican talk show host who got into hot water with anti-LGBT remarks, marriage equality in Mexico City, justice in the murder of Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado, and Fidel Castro says he is to blame for past persecution against the LGBT community in Cuba.
- Andrew Sullivan at The Daily Dish wraps up his own top blog posts of 2010 (not all LGBT-related, but many are) in six separate entries: January-February, March-April, May-June, July-August, September-October and November-December. One of my favorites of his favorites: “The Pope And The Male HIV-Positive Prostitute.”
- Guest blogger Nathaniel Rogers on Towleroad listed movies with the “best” LGBT characters of 2010, including characters in Black Swan, I Love You Phillip Morris and The Kids Are All Right.
- Guest blogger Rev. Patrick Cheng on Pam’s House Blend gave a religious perspective on the LGBT news of 2010, including many biblical references for anti-LGBT Christians to ponder.
- And last but certainly not least, Bil Browning at The Bilerico Project ranks the top 10 LGBT news stories of 2010, including the failure of ENDA, the Uganda “Kill the Gays” bill and same-sex marriage in D.C. (you’ll have to read it to find out what was ranked No. 1).
