Couple of pieces of good news today.

In Mexico City, same-sex marriages have been legalised and the first couples already registered.

Closer to home in NSW, the Registry of BD&M have given up assigning gender in select cases. Norrie could be the first officially androgynous, or non-gendered, resident in Australia. Am waiting for the government to adjust their databases.

ETA: Alas, poor Norrie, whose new gender unspecified status has been revoked. Wonder what they’ll come up with to replace it.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
