*Working Towards a Better World

 

YEAH for President Obama and for the Supreme Court, who sided on LOVE!! That most certainly is a win for a better world. Thank you!!!

 

Thank you for your kind visit. Have a wonderful and beautiful day! xo❤️

Wednesday was the first day DC accepted marriage licenses from same-sex couples. The Westboro Baptist Church was there protesting first thing in the morning (Matt Dunn got some amazing shots of them); I got there around 11 to watch the scheduled counterprotest, which was full of levity and smiles.

Ken Starr, who led the campaign to impeach President Bill Clinton, filed a legal brief last month -- on behalf of the "Yes on 8" campaign -- that would forcibly divorce 18,000 same-sex couples that were married in California last year before the passage of Prop 8.

 

Watch "Fidelity" and sign our letter to the state Supreme Court. Tell the Supreme Court to invalidate Prop 8, reject Ken Starr's case, and let loving, committed couples marry. DEADLINE: Valentine's Day.

 

184,045 people have signed this letter (as of Thursday, February 12). Our Courage Campaign community goal is 200,000 signers. Will you add your name now?:

Our friend Andy was being funny while our witnesses were signing the marriage license. I had just told him that we were glad we invited him for comic relief, hence the expression.

Across the broad spectrum that is the church universal, theological differences are all too apparent. I expect that this sign is an attempt to bring some levity and second thought to one of the raging debates in the Church.

 

Guess this is why Gilmore Park United Church decided to put up their sign:

I've also learned since that the Anglican Church of Canada voted this week at their Synod to allow for marriage ceremonies to be performed in their denomination for church members: www.cbc.ca/news/canada/anglican-church-same-sex-marriage-...

These are some pics I snapped in support of the wonderful NoH8 Campaign, founded by Jeff Parshley and Adam Bouska, which bled into Second Life where a bevy of avatars stepped to the plate to show their support.

Let's see that it happens again.

This was one of the more interesting photos I took this new year but unfortunately I didn't get around to upload it until now.

As you might know, Washington state legalized gay marriage by popular vote and this was clear in the fireworks!

 

Sorry for the blur and well ... tons of smoke! The crowd went crazy for this and kind of shook my tripod a bit. Also this was towards the end of the show, so there was too much smoke in the air.

 

ENJOY!

Yesterday was our anniversary!

We married 10 years ago!

I'm so happy to live in a country where I can marry the woman of my dreams!

 

<3 Jo!

This is the earliest picture I know of showing the two of us together. Frank's late wife took it in October, 1982, on the occasion of Frank's birthday. Now, in my case anyway, it's more than half a lifetime ago. I'm on the right.

 

We had been together for a year by then. Now it's been 27 years . . .

 

We've been spouses under Canadian law since 2003.

 

Well, its been a fun ride. Ultimately we will prevail over religiously inspired bigotry, because freedom doesn't come from god (or dog) or any other imaginary friend; it's our inalienable birthright as human beings.

 

as opposed to living in sin...which has really gotten a bad rap.

"The pride of a father"

New York City protests against Proposition 8 and demands equality for all and the right for gay and lesbian citizens to get married.

 

City Hall,

New York.

  

The most touching moment in the whole day. To see this father standing proud of his young gay son, and claiming for his rights next to him, totally got into my soul and I don't care to admit that they even made me teary!

 

Thanks SO MUCH, if they ever get to see this, for the beautiful and priceless example.

 

I am sick of seeing my fellow Americans fighting for rights that should be a given. If I have the freedom to marry someone I love then so should anyone. I was listening to Martin Luther King speeches during my commute and this line really hit home. It’s simple and it’s true.

 

I have used this Martin Luther King quote out of context. This is a line from his last speech and he says “all we say to America is, be true to what you said on paper” regarding injunctions for protests (as well as other freedoms) that were planned in Memphis. You can watch that part of the speech here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_l7cKzld5oo

  

Gay marriage was legalized here in Canada in 2005. And yet somehow nothing happened. Amazing.

 

Well, except gays became overjoyed at the fact they were now considered equals in Canadian society. The foster children who now had new homes were also thrilled.

 

And as a Canadian I felt a sense of great pride in my country.

1st April 2001 was the first day that same sex couples could get married in the world and it was in Holland, something which is being celebrated in Holland at the moment. Her are some photos from the wedding of our best friends Henk and Piet who got married on 17th February 2004.

 

Fred amd I have never decided to get married but we have nice celebrations on our anniversary dates.

Thousands of Californians gathered on the steps of the State Capitol Building in Sacramento to protest Prop. 8, the anti-gay marriage amendment.

in pursuit of Equality... for Californians, for Americans, and for everyone...in a year that continues to define history as we know it

 

California State Capitol, Sacramento

To have and to hold from this day forward

For better for worse

For richer for poorer

In sickness and in health

To love and to cherish

Till death us do part

Couldn't agree with her more!

 

If you want to post this on tumblr (or any other public blog), make sure you link it back to this page and message me that you are using it. I will find you, hunt you down, and make you miserable if you don't. Don't think I won't- I sure as hell will. This is my work, and I deserve 100% attachment/recognition for what I have decided to share with you all.

Protest against the California Supreme Court decision today against same-sex marriage (Yerba Buena Garden, San Francisco)

June 5, 2018; Gay Marriage Celebration at Brooklyn Borough Hall, July 2011

Californians voted to amend the state constitution to take away civil rights.

 

We were married on 10/31/08. Proponents of Prop 8 are seeking annulments for all 17,000+ same-sex marriages that have happened since the state supreme court declared denying these basic civil rights unconstitutional.

After 7 happy years together Lexi and Cerys got married. Let's all wish them best wishes for a bright future and a long life together.

Rejoice! The ban on same-sex marriage in England and Wales is being finally lifted after a campaign for its repeal that lasted 43 years. FACEBOOK I TUMBLR

 

Today, marriage became legal for everyone in Connecticut.

 

Marriage is now equal in two states out of fifty, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.

 

Several states, including Vermont, California, New Jersey, Maine, Hawaii, DC, Washington and Oregon, have fallen short, creating Civil Unions, a policy of supposed Separate Equality, which is inherently unequal.

 

This country is absolutely treading on the rights of a minority group. Our laws are in place to protect minorities from the tyranny of majority rule.

 

If you want to take action, get in touch with the Equality group in your area.

 

There is a Nationwide protest against homophobic discrimination this Saturday, November 15th. Stand up and be heard.

 

Love is love.

 

In a country where church and state are separate, religion is free, and genders are equal, we are hypocrites operating under the principle that all Americans must abide by Fundamentalist morality in personal and legal matters, a moral system which inherently divides women from men.

 

So here's my question for you:

If I legally change my gender, can I marry whomever I want and get on with my life?

My daughter's teacher asked her 2nd graders to write an I Have a Dream essay in honor of MLK Jr. My seven year old wrote that she wished gay marriage was legal. This may very well be my proudest moment as a parent.

"Can you believe it! We just drove to a state that allows gay marriage, & when we were driving home, we heard that NOW O-U-R state has marriage equality! "

Sorry, Scott Walker, marriage equality is here to stay -- in Wisconsin and elsewhere in the US.
