Skinheads attack Bulgarian Gay rally
Six skinheads were arrested in Pazardzhik, Bulgaria, on March 20 after they attacked Gay and Lesbian activists who were protesting a City Council decision to ban public displays of homosexuality.

The protesters, from the youth group LGBT in Action, had traveled to the city from Sofia, the capital.

When the skinheads attacked, police officers, led by the police chief, knocked them to the ground and arrested them, according to the Sofia News Agency.

The skinheads reportedly yelled, Go to Uganda, freaks.

LGBT in Action has filed a challenge to the new local law with the national anti-discrimination commission.

Dutch Gay group plans to sue U.S. general
The Dutch foundation Pink Army said March 22 it will sue retired U.S. general and former NATO commander John Sheehan in federal court in California for slander and defamation.

Appearing before a congressional committee looking at the U.S. militarys Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy March 18, Sheehan said the Dutch military failed to stop the 1995 genocide in Bosnia because, among other things, the presence of openly Gay Dutch soldiers weakened the force.

Pink Army said it plans a class-action suit and wants Sheehan to retract the statement, apologize at a press conference and in international newspapers, and attend sensitivity training.

Sheehans comment dishonors and cheapens the sacrifice that brave Gay men and women have made in military service to the Netherlands, said Pink Army founder Peter Schouten. They are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice every day and this should not be smeared with such a lie.

U.S. legal observers say there is little chance of success for such a lawsuit.

Hungarian court upholds Gay partnership law
Hungarys Constitutional Court upheld the nations same-sex registered-partnership law March 23.

Conservative forces  including the Christian Democratic Peoples Party, the Society for Christian Physicians in Hungary, the Pro Life Forum, and representatives of Faith Church  had argued in nine petitions that the law undermined marriage, discriminated against straight people, violated morality and harmed children, among other things.

The court disagreed on all points.

The law grants registered partners most of the rights of marriage, with the exception of access to adoption and assisted reproduction, and the right to take a spouses last name.

U.N. to target Gay sex bans
UNAIDS, a grouping of 10 United Nations agencies, will launch a new campaign to repeal laws that criminalize Gay sex in 85 of the worlds approximately 194 nations.

UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibe said countries that criminalize homosexuality can see HIV transmission levels 10 times higher than nations that do not, in part because criminalization discourages people from seeking medical care.

Anti-Lesbian Spanish judge will stay suspended
Spains Constitutional Court has refused an appeal from a judge in Murcia who was banned from office for 10 years by the Supreme Court after he refused to let a Lesbian adopt her partners child. Judge Ferrín Calamita also must pay the woman 6,000 euros ($8,040).
