Stonewall Inn declared NYC landmark

New York City's landmarks commission today voted to grant official status to the Stonewall Inn, the Greenwich Village bar often credited as the birthplace of the modern LGBT rights movement.

This lesbian MP could become one of the most powerful LGBTI people in Europe

Angela Eagle, one of the U.K.'s top lesbian MPs, has officially announced her campaign to be named Deputy Leader of the Labour Party on 22 June. The long-time human rights campaigner has pledged to "smash the glass ceiling for LGBTI people worldwide" if she takes the coveted position.

How gay marriage became a major issue for a generation uninterested in marriage

On the eve of a Supreme Court decision that could decide same-sex marriage in America, nearly three-fourths of millennials support it — even as only 16 percent of adults aged 18 to 29 are actually married themselves. The latter is the lowest it's been in at least 10 years. And it's more than a little ironic that marriage has become the defining political issue for a generation that's overwhelmingly single and perhaps less interested in marriage than those who came before it.

Ireland aims to draw gay weddings to its Emerald shores

Not even a month after Irish voters overwhelmingly approved legal gay marriage, the country has launched an international tourism campaign to become the top gay wedding destination in Europe. Despite its history as one of the world’s most conservative Catholic countries, the campaign is very much in line with another image Ireland has long cultivated: One of the most romantic places on earth, with its ancient castles, dreamingly beautiful landscapes, the biggest matchmaking festival in the world and a booming wedding industry.

LGBT tourism conference proves Argentina is doing it right

Argentina is once again dominating tourism within Latin America, not only because of its wide range of things to see and do throughout the entire country, but because they have cornered the market within LGBT tourism within the region. Argentina is once again dominating tourism within Latin America, not only because of its wide range of things to see and do throughout the entire country, but because they have cornered the market within LGBT tourism within the region. Clustered within a conservative continent, Argentina has always been many steps ahead when it comes to anything and everything related to the LGBT consumer, as well as their LGBT residents.

Moroccan gay men to serve 4 months for posing close together for photograph

Two Moroccan gay men have been sentenced to four months each in jail after they were arrested for standing too close to one another as they posed for a photograph in front of a historic site in Rabat. Lahcen, 38, and Mohsine, 25, whose surnames the Guardian is not publishing in order to protect their identities, were found guilty of homosexuality and obscenity, in a trial described by activists as grossly unfair.
