Mixed Couples

Mike Silverman has this entry (within Blogger limitations) on a gay-male couple -- one Palestinian, one American-- who are in a legal (and possibly physical) no-man's land. They got run out of the West Bank (with help from the Palestinian one's brother) to Israel for being gay. The Palestinian can't stay in Israel, where the couple has been in hiding. He can't seem to get asylum anywhere (not Israel, not Europe, not the USA). And, he's got medical problems (cataracts).

Advocates for gay rights in Israel are trying to raise money to support these guys. More detailed info is here (again, courtesy of Mike Silverman).

Of course if homo-people could get married, the couple could just locate in the USA. Take it away, Andrew Sullivan.
