Monday morning open thread: What was the biggest gay news story of 2010?

Morning all, hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas.

We’re in the office putting together the final DV of the year, which will feature our Top 10 stories of 2010.

Posts may be a little sporadic as we work shorthanded in a short week to get the print edition out, but we thought we’d kick things off by asking: What do you think was the biggest gay news story of the year?

Share your thoughts in the comments.

Monday morning open thread: Who deserves the most credit for repeal of ‘don’t ask don’t tell’?

That’s right, now that DADT is almost history, it’s time to fight over debate who deserves the most credit for its repeal. Barack Obama? Harry Reid? Joe Lieberman? Nancy Pelosi? The Human Rights Campaign? GetEQUAL? Servicemembers Legal Defense Network? Dan Choi? Lady Gaga?

Here at Instant Tea we were convinced that our own reporting was responsible for Saturday’s successful Senate vote, but then we received the below e-mail from Rob Schlein, president of Log Cabin Republicans of Dallas, and we began to have second thoughts. So, what do you think?
