BREAKING: Judge’s order strikes down Nebraska ban on gay marriage
A federal judge has issued a permanent injunction striking down Nebraska’s now-negated ban on gay marriage and civil unions.

OMAHA, Neb. — A federal judge has issued a permanent injunction striking down Nebraska‘s now-negated ban on gay marriage and civil unions.

The injunction issued Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Bataillon was largely a formality, as a Supreme Court ruling in late June legalized gay marriage across the county.

Bataillon’s injunction orders state officials to treat same-sex couples the same as different-sex couples in everything from processing marriage certificates to issuing birth certificates.

State attorneys had argued that the injunction was not necessary, because the state has complied with the Supreme Court’s ruling since it was issued.

But several same-sex couples who challenged the state’s ban in 2014 argued that the state’s attempt last year to exclude same-sex spouses on their children’s birth certificates showed that the injunction was necessary.

Prince Harry 'saved me from hate attack'

LONDON, June 9 AAP - A gay British soldier says Prince Harry rescued him from a homophobic attack by infantry members during a training exercise in Canada.

Trooper James Wharton became the target of abuse in 2008 after bragging about “scoring” with a fellow soldier.

“I think I’m about to be murdered by the infantry,” Trooper Wharton told Prince Harry who was his tank commander at the time.

After hearing the story the third-in-line to the throne reportedly declared: “Right, I’m going to sort this s**t out once and for all.”

“Harry climbed out of the tank and started having a go,” Trooper Wharton, who was then 21, writes in a book extract published in British tabloid The Mail on Sunday.

“He wasn’t holding back. Prince Harry was sticking up for me and putting a stop to the trouble.

"I had been on track for a battering and had been rescued.”

Trooper Wharton, who quit the army earlier this year, writes that after hosing down the 2008 incident Prince Harry told him: “I told those other lads to back the f**k off.”

The gay soldier had previously been hospitalised after a vicious beating by a fellow soldier at the Knightsbridge barracks in central London.

Trooper Wharton also recounts in the book extract that Prince Harry once claimed he and his older brother William had been told they were both gay icons.

When Trooper Wharton laughed Prince Harry said: “What? What? We are!”

“I don’t think you are, sir,” Trooper Wharton said to which Prince Harry replied: “We are! Our press people told us!”

When the royal was again told he wasn’t a gay icon he reportedly responded: “Is it because I’m a f**king ginger?”

Prince Harry, 28, made headlines in January after returning from a 20-week tour of duty in Afghanistan when he confirmed he’d shot dead insurgents from the cockpit of his Apache helicopter.

The Ministry of Defence and Buckingham Palace declined to comment on Trooper Wharton’s book extract.

Its the loveliest thing in the world

When you admire someone from a far for so long and finally get to date them. Dreams do come true.

Meeting Jinoo back in June at Gay Pride and wanting him, being enamored and enthralled by him. But he had a girlfriend.
I met him through a mutual friend. And 2 weeks later was Hard Summer and I get a text, guess who is single! I had talked about Jinoo nonstop since I met him. His smile, his laugh his warm bubbly, happy personality! He is magical. At Hard Summer we have the exact same trip and spend basically the whole first day together.
2 weeks after Hard I called him on the phone and we chatted for about 45 minutes. About everything under the sun. Then we decide to meet up in our hometown (yes we are from the same place). He cancels last minute and so we decide to go to Berkeley the following week where we begin our adventure and basically fall deeply in love. And we have seen eachother every week since August 21. Honestly getting to wake up to his beautiful glowing face, getting his sweet kisses. When we cuddle and both hold eachother’s hands. I feel unbelievably blessed that he adored me from the moment we met as much as I adored him. We have the healthiest relationship I tell him everything more than girlfriends there is nothing we cannot share. It’s beautiful and I am so incredibly happy with him. We treasure eachother and we have been dating 6 months but finally made it official Dec 30th , 2015. Ahh I love you Jinoo soo much endlessly and I tell you that often! 😘

More schools to get flashing safety lights

More NSW schools are to get flashing lights on the road outside the school gate.

The state government says it will spend an extra $13 million installing lights in school zones.

Premier Barry O'Farrell said flashing lights were the most effective way of getting motorists to slow down near schools.

“Our children are our most vulnerable and inexperienced road users,” he said in a statement.

The new lights will cost $8400 a set, down from $25,000 previously.

A total of 1263 schools will have flashing lights by the end of June, Roads Minister Duncan Gay said.

The government says a further 1,500 of the state’s 3,150 schools will have lights installed by 2015.

Flashing lights advocate Peter Olsen, who had 70 flashing lights personally installed out of frustration with government inactivity, welcomed the news.

“You drive through a school zone with flashing lights, you instantly go ‘ooh’ and you slow down,” he said.
