Freddie Ljungberg

Football star Freddie Ljungberg is the sportsman that most gay men would like to score with, according to a magazine poll.

The hunky Arsenal soccer player has been named Hottest Football Stud for the second year in a row by readers of gay magazine Attitude.

And Swedish Freddie, 28, whose body has been projected onto billboards across the world as part of a Calvin Klein advertising campaign, says he's thrilled with the accolade.

But he made it clear that he was more of a ladies' man: "I am not gay. If I was I would just say I was and it wouldn’t bother me. I know lots of gay people. As for fans, I take them where I can get them!"

He added that people are more likely to talk to him about his looks than football.

"In America, where of course there is so little interest in soccer, I have become the Calvin Klein ad man," he said.

PHNOM PENH - Cambodia’s gay and lesbian community celebrated their sexuality and increasing acceptance by society by holding the nation’s third annual Gay Pride Parade over the weekend.

The flamboyant parade was held on Friday night, but celebrations of the community’s sexuality - once a taboo subject in Cambodia - continued throughout the weekend.

“This time more people joined the party because Cambodia is opening up and with it our culture,” Cambodian-Canadian organizer David Marshall said.

“Cambodia needs something like this because it celebrates the diversity of Cambodia.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Four additional Congressional lawmakers have signed on as co-sponsors of legislation to repeal the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell ban on lesbian, gay and bisexual service personnel in recent days.

Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, the group advocating for gays in the military, see that as a sign Congressional opposition to lifting the ban is eroding.

Republican Sherwood Boehlert of New York and Democrats Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, Julia Carson of Indiana and Michael Doyle of Pennsylvania have joined 110 others in Congress in calling for repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Here's the status on same-sex marriage-related legislation and rulings around the country:

_In November 2004, voters in 11 states _ Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, Oregon and Utah _ adopted constitutional amendments barring same-sex marriage.

_A year later, voters in Texas followed suit.

_In November of this year, voters in Idaho, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin are likely to vote on the issue.

_While Massachusetts is the only state to legalize gay marriage, Vermont and Connecticut allow civil unions, which extend the rights and benefits of marriage to same-sex couples.

_The New Jersey Supreme Court heard arguments in February in a gay-marriage case and is expected to rule in the next several months.

I'm fairly certain that Justin and I will never be allowed even the privilege of a civil union here in Tennessee.

You can always come to Canada.

That is true Stephen, but I shouldn't have to leave MY home to be treated with dignity, like a real person.

Someone has to stay behind and fight for what is good and reasonable.

Besides, Canada is too damned cold. :-)
