Mazel tov!

Recently, we've been discussing some of the old school laws on homosexuality and HIV that are teetering on the edge of the wastebin of history.

There's a heartening update on the US HIV travel ban: the Department of Health and Human Services has proposed a regulation to remove HIV from the list of “communicable diseases of public health significance”. Congress is all for it and once the regulations are published, American law will catch up with the general consensus of the medical community. If you'd like to cheer on the HHS, you can do so here. It's very easy to do, and afterwards you can lord your ''activism'' over everyone you know.

Also, the Delhi High Court has recently decriminalized homosexuality. According to the Bonne Nouvelle blog, this means we've gone ''from Bombay to Bomgay''. I don't know if I'd go that far, but it is a bonne nouvelle indeed.
