-- Proponents of Proposition 8, the ban on gay marriage in California that will be tested before the Supreme Court this spring, filed their opening brief with the court on Tuesday. Buzzfeed reports on the brief:

Our Constitution does not mandate the traditional gendered definition of marriage, but neither does our Constitution condemn it. This Court, accordingly, should allow the public debate regarding marriage to continue through the democratic process, both in California and throughout the Nation.

-- Montana, one of several states to keep laws criminalizing sodomy on the books even after the Supreme Court made them unenforceable, appears poised to finally repeal its law.

-- The Advocate has a long profile of Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce, who is rebooting Stephen King's Carrie. "Maybe I haven't lived Carrie's exact experience, but you draw from the things that are similar in your own life that you are working out."
