A day of many feelings. We laughed, we cried, we asked “is this really happening?” incredulously, and the world spun madly on. Welcome to Day Five of the Prop 8 Same-Sex Marriage Trial Recap: Judgment DAZE.
Day Four of the Prop 8 Trial and the other side is getting really desperate. But we’ve got our game faces on for testimony on the effects of prejudice & social stigma on gays and of gay marriage on the economy. But funnier!
Day Three of the Prop 8 Trial recap, in which the other side wants to talk about how gay men sleep around, schools teach children how to be gay, and that because we have Will & Grace, we don’t need equal rights. What they don’t know is that Will & Grace has been off the air for a few years. The plot thickens…
Prop 8 Trial: The Recap. In Day Two, we analyze the history of marriage and the history of anti-gay propaganda, and we fantasize about a West Wing Prop 8 Trial Musical Revue, with lots of graphics!
We’ll be recapping the Prop 8 Trial for you every day, and sorry for being a little late today! We’ve got all your Day One info, testimony, links, videos and analysis for our kickoff Judgement Daze.
“Perry v. Schwarzenegger is a thrill; it’s also terrifying.” The Prop 8 Trial to appeal the ruling against same-sex marriage begins today in San Francisco, starring David Boies and Theodore B. Olson. We got your who, what, when, where and why.
Why the plan to televise the Prop 8 Trial on YouTube is BRILL. A round-up of reactions to New Jersey’s vote-down of same-sex marriage (“an absolute disgrace”), Portugal legalizes same-sex marriage, Glenn Beck says “African-American” is a made-up word!
The hypocrisy is thick today! Plus, Gay marriage is dead in the water in New Jersey (surprise!) but safe in Iowa. Annise Parker was sworn in as mayor of Houston. California will vote on marijuana legalization soon.
Guess what, another decade is over! Here’s a retrospective on the best of times and worst of times in the 00’s for the queers.
Here’s our roundup of the biggest, best, and worst events for gay people in 2009.
New Jersey is so close to New York, it’s practically the same place (or at least we’ll pretend it is if they vote to legalize gay marriage). Meanwhile, Denver would rather vote to roll out the red carpet for alien invaders. ALSO; Tolerance is relative when teaching middle school students, Prop. 8 still blows, and Rick Warren is loathsome as ever.
California judge dares to ask anti-equality lawyer how exactly gay marriage will affect opposite marriage. Another Prop 8 Crusader says the effect on him is being seen as a bigot for doing bigoted things. Also; Maine Update, Mormon squabbles, SECULAR SABOTAGE and … teletubbies?
The L Word Movie? No thanks say fans who are still upset about all that other crazy stuff that happened. Queerty says gays need to look at the man in the mirror to make a change, a lesbian comes out as straight, and Transpeople have trouble flying under new TSA regulations.
Some Mormons aren’t happy about this Prop 8 thing, and some people aren’t happy that Britney got nominated for so many VMAs, but who cares, there’s a new GLEE promo!
Introducing Read a F*cking Book Wednesday, with other stuff about when to act on prop 8, starving interns, and a (fake trailer for a fake) new movie with an incredible new soundtrack starring the girl from clueless and the ironic girl!
“I write about what I know: sex, pornography, art, fame obsession, drugs, and alcohol. I mean, why would anyone care to listen to me if I wasn’t an expert in what I write about?”
“What I do not enjoy is people saying a woman marrying a woman will lead to a woman marrying a dog. I do not want to marry a woman. I am very little and she would crush my bones.”
Adam Lambert, Lady GaGa, the Arnold, Dame Edna and Wanda Sykes give good interview, Prop 8 debates rage on with a new federal court case, and Carmen auto-straddles Shane.
Let’s sing about rainbows, follow @autostraddle on twitter, appreciate jezebel, party in who-ville despite the Mormons and start all over again with “How do You Like Us Now.”
“The California Supreme Court will hand down its decision on Proposition 8 and address the legal status of over 18,000 same-sex couples who were married between June and November while the legalization was in effect.”
