Gay sports figure, others honored by queen
Aslie Pitter, a founder of Britain's first Gay soccer team, Stonewall FC, was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire in Queen Elizabeth II's New Year Honours, for his voluntary service.

Toni Montinaro received an MBE 'for services to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People in Derbyshire.' Veteran Lesbian activist Lisa Power was awarded an MBE 'for services to sexual health and to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community.'

And social worker Barbara Ross received an MBE 'for services to Gender Dysphoria.'

Married Mexican Gay couples granted spousal health coverage
A Mexico City Lesbian, married under the city's same-sex marriage law, has won the right to insure her wife in the national health-care system.

In 2010, a judge had ordered that Lol Kin Castañeda could register Judith Vázquez as her wife with the Mexican Institute of Social Security, the national health-care system.

The Secretariat of Labor and Social Security appealed the order several weeks ago, then reversed course this month and dropped the appeal.

The agency said its final determination in the matter also applies to other same-sex couples married in Mexico City, the only place in the nation where same-sex marriage has been legalized.

Gay couples married in Mexico City also are supposed to be recognized as married by all of Mexico's 31 states, in accord with a 2010 federal Supreme Court ruling, though the decision remains untested in most locations.
