So, I give up. I'm over the whole "It's not outing, it's reporting" thing. Everyone else uses 'outing' so that's that.

Peter Tatchell, the gay human rights campaigner, was detained by police this afternoon in London as the Olympic torch was controversially paraded through the capital on its way to Beijing. He was held briefly before being released with a warning.

I ♥ Peter Tatchell. I wish he'd become a contributor here. He has so many fascinating personal stories to tell.

I would love to be able to remember how to make the heart symbol you used Bil. Can't even remember the ASCII for it.

The club and diamond symbol can be handy too.

Umm, Bil and Diddly . . . ya'll are super geeks!

WTF is Peter Tatchell?

Um, the person Mike talks about in his post!
