I almost feel bad to see Bondi get her ass handed to her on national television but considering everything she/her office did to block gay marriage in FL, I’m okay with it.
Just login, and navigate to facebook.com/celebratepride. Share to all the places! (And leave the default status up so your friends know that it exists, because that’s how I found out.) I wish I could put an example picture here, but I’m not quite ready to dox myself.
UPDATE: The polls closed at 10:00. We don’t have final turnout figures, but it’s suggested it may have reached 70% in some areas.
Since we all need a little boost after this dumpster fire of an afternoon, let's all dance a little in honor of Indiana and Wisconsin's anti-equality marriage bans are indefensible and unconstitutional! The opinion itself is pretty great and available in full on TPM's story.
"We tried to fit in," says John, "but the weddings … I felt so underdressed."
While no progressive could be blamed for thinking that the Grand Old Party is far from changing its tune on gay rights issues, apparently it's happening. While marriage equality has gained traction amongst the majority of Americans, Republicans are quietly turning to K Street lobbying firms to help them shift their…
The ever colorful Sir Elton John thinks Pope Francis is "wonderful," Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is "doing a good job," Vladimir Putin just needs to meet some gay people to soften up, and oh yeah, Jesus? Totally cool with same-sex marriage.
Video is unrelated, I just like this song
And the hits just keep on rolling. A federal judge ruled a week ago that Utah must recognise all of the marriage certificates were granted after that state's same-sex marriage ban was struck down in December. That's over 1,300 marriages.
Fourteen to zip, so far. A federal judge in Harrisburg, PA has struck down the Keystone State's ban on same-sex marriage. This is the fourteenth consecutive decision declaring state bans unconstitutional and the second this week. And it's only Wednesday!
The National Organisation for Marriage (or NOM, but not the cool kind of eating onomatopoeia) filed a motion today to stay and appeal the court ruling in Oregon legalising same-sex marriage in that state. The appeal was denied immediately.
Starting one minute after midnight, March 29th GMT, same-sex couples in England and Wales will be able to have their unions recognised as marriages. Previously same-sex couples could only enter into a civil union which conferred the same rights as marriage but was viewed as the government marking out which unions were…
Seems like we missed this yesterday, unless I'm not seeing the article on GT. Long and short: New Mexico (aka The Quiet Kid In Class Who You Never Think About Until They Randomly Bring Everyone Donuts One Day) enacted marriage equality thanks to a unanimous state Supreme Court ruling. Since New Mexico was the ONLY…
Which you can read about here. The NJ Supreme Court, while they have not technically issued a ruling, has also declined to stop marriage licenses from being handed out to gay and lesbian couples. What this means is that there's about a 99.999% chance they're going to rule that in the wake of DOMA, Civil Unions are…
Same-sex couples in New Jersey will soon be able to marry.
Specifically these ones:
Artist Jack Hunter titled it "Moment of Joy." D'awwwww.
So I've been thinking a lot about Marriage Equality lately. No surprise there — I'm pretty much always thinking a lot about Marriage Equality — but with the recent victories in Maryland, Washington, Maine, Minnesota, Rhode Island, and Delaware, and the upcoming Supreme Court decisions on Prop 8 and DOMA, it's been on…
