Activists are hailing a victory in Alabama’s election after Republican Roy Moore was narrowly defeated by Democrat Doug Jones. Moore had been accused of sexual misconduct and wanting to criminalise same-sex relationships, while Jones famously sued the Ku Klux Klan.

 

A lesbian couple who married in Tanzania has been arrested for breaking the country’s strict anti-gay laws. Their celebrant, photographer and guests are also being rounded up and could face jail just for participating in the ceremony.

 

The Puerto Rico Senate has approved a religious freedom bill which could allow anti-LGBT discrimination. The move is seen as an attack on advances in LGBT rights over recent years, including in marriage and gender recognition.

 

The rush is on to be the first same-sex couple to marry in Australia after opt-out clauses permit some couples to skip the official process. Two couples in Victoria and one in New South Wales are vying to be first, dodging the usual one month wait.

 

And finally, Star Wars fans who were hoping to see the first gay characters in The Last Jedi have been let down. A rumoured romance between Po & Finn was not scripted in the latest instalment, with critics saying the exclusion could be seen as willful. ___________________________________________________________________
