Here's some news I thought everyone should read about things going on around the state that impact the LGBT community. Feel free to leave more stories and links in the comments!

* Florida's LGBT seniors seek resources, face concerns - Boston's EDGE magazine profiles SAGE (Senior Action in a Gay Environment) and talks about the issues the aging LGBT population faces. Great article!

* Broward's gay Republicans divided over priorities - The Sun-Sentinel takes a look at the feud between the Log Cabin Republicans and the New conserva-gay group Sunshine Republicans (GOProud). The main bone of contention? Apparently the LCR care about LGBT issues too much... *insert eye roll here*

* Gay adoptive dad gets help to receive subsidy - The Miami Herald looks at the case of a gay adoptive father in Key West may now have a new ally: federal regulators (in his battle with Florida child welfare administrators).

* National anti-gay conference to hit South Florida - The South Florida Blade reports on the Ex-gay' therapists to meet in West Palm Beach and how Soulforce plans a counter conference.

What's happening in your neck of the woods?
