OUT Lesbians Bring Home the GOLD Medals at the 2008 Olympics at Beijing!

Katyja Nyberg and Gro Hammerseng...HIP HIP HORRAY!

28-year-old openly gay captain Gro Hammerseng led Norway’s championship handball team to a 34-27 victory against Russia in the Olympic finals this weekend, securing the team’s first Olympic gold medal.

The team, which also includes openly gay left back Katja Nyberg, advanced to the finals after narrowly beating South Korea in the semifinals, where center-back Hammerseng scored the winning goal in the final second.

Both women scored in the game against Russia, with Nyberg the third-highest scorer for the team, with four goals.

Good for them! And for the Aussie diver- so completely humble and adorable and so loving his mom and his partner.

I attended the closing ceremonies of the Gay Games in 1994- the big anniversary of Stonewall year if I am correct.

It was held at Yankee Stadium and was emceed by Harvey Fierstein and Julia Sweeney as Pat. Oh dear- how far we have come.
