MONDAY KICKSTARTER: Nation’s LGBT Latino Population Grows, Kansas Bans Same-Sex Married Couples From Filing Joint Taxes and More

I trolled the web for LGBT headlines all weekend so you wouldn’t have to. What did I dig up? Not a lot of great news, unfortunately. Keep reading to learn about Kansas’s failure to allow gay married couples to file taxes jointly, why Russia has targeted Sweden in its latest round of homophobic-ness and a Supreme Court judge in Washington who refused to preside over a same-sex marriage, even though marriage equality is legal in The Evergreen State.

Come looking for better news? Don’t worry, there are things to get excited about, too, like a Dean at the Washington National Cathedral who said something about homophobia that should have been said a long time ago, a boost in the country’s LGBT Latino population, and, just for shits and grins, check out the entertainment section for a NSFW video of rugby players demonstrating how to check for testicular cancer. Then check for testicular cancer, because that’s really important.
