It is more than marriage. It is about the great work we are doing on everything else, because we want to win all the battles. We need all the things!
Students at Mount Holyoke speak up for trans inclusion, GaymerX becomes GX3 to make an important point, gay marriage moves forward in Florida, and Natasha Lyonne and Mary Lambert give us a lot of media worth waiting for. Oh, and an elephant dances with a ribbon.
Let’s read some good gay news before breakfast!
Y’all, if Florida can do it…
Was there ever a week where we needed good gay news more than this week? Probably not.
Now that I’ve set the tone for our good gay news today, let’s dive right in to all this weekend has to offer queer people that is vaguely positive or fuzzy!
Florida’s recent gay marriage ruling is not definitive but it raises the question of when this issue will reach its way up the the Supreme Court and also makes me consider how strange it is to be in this inbetween time where it is legal in some places and not in others.
Deal with it.
A Florida judge overturned the state’s 2008 same-sex marriage ban on Thursday, allowing same sex couples in Monroe County to marry starting on Tuesday.
I have a historic amount of good gay news for you today, and you won’t wanna miss a thing.
You deserve a hunk of hunk of burnin’ happy queer notes from the recent past today.
“Since most music industry folks go to great lengths to hide same-gender loving artists, it was great to have the opportunity to see how industry insiders on the show reacted to the relationship between Monifah and Terez. Their overwhelming support showed that people were not as unwilling to accept a season finale in which Monifah Carter had a same-sex relationship as many think. The stereotype of the homophobic R&B community was breaking down before our eyes.”
This morning, a federal judge in Indiana determined that the state’s same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional, and couples in the state have already begun marrying.
After a landmark vote in the Presbyterian Church USA General Assembly Thursday, the denomination’s constitutional definition of marriage allows for same-sex unions.
The best part? It’s all on video.
42% of Americans believe that gay people are born rather than made.
With no one left who can argue in favor of the ban in court, couples can start marrying without fear of the uncertain fate faced by hundreds of couples in Arkansas after last week’s legal fracas there.
So what does all this judicial back-and-forth mean?
It’s time for another week of activism and adorableness!
LGBT folks are fighting discrimination in the workplace, in video games and at Pride, oh my!
