Gay News,Hawaii Gov. compares gay marriage to incest, Top Chef judge on Gay Pride float, separate showers if DADT is repealed?

14 07 2010

Linda Lingle, the Governor of Hawaii, who vetoed the civil unions bill of the state last week said on air that if gay marriage is a civil right than close relatives should also be able to get married, because that could be seen as a civil right as well. Lingle said ” First cousins could not get married, or a brother and sister and that sort of thing.” First off comparing gay marriage to incest is super insulting, second first cousins CAN actually get married in Hawaii. What a stupid bitch.

Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio can be seen on a bear float during LA Gay Pride 2011. He told Andy Cohen during Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live” that he was insulted that no one in the bear community had asked him to be on a float during this years Gay Pride. After the show Bravo got flushed with phone calls and “A Bear’s Life Magazine” set it up. Because of his stocky build Colicchio, who is married with kids,  has been an icon in the bear community for quite sometime. Even though his restaurants have underwhelmed me often, this is pretty cool.

Friday it was made clear that if DADT will be repealed there might be some changes in the living situation of military people. The Pentagon is now heavily denying wanting separate barracks and showers after heavy criticism from the gay community and says there is only talk about maybe some extra shower curtains. Fuck that, how can a president whose father has been subjected to segregation even consider some of these things. Very repulsive.

The U.K. AIDS hospice made famous back in the 80’s by the visit of Princess Diana will be torn down. In 1989 the Princess of Wales was one of the first famous people to touch and hug people living with HIV/AIDS. Incredibly important in breaking the taboos.





Prop 8 Trial

23 01 2010

The prop 8 trial has gone on for 2 weeks now and has been very interesting so far. First of all the Supreme Court denied camera’s in the court room as requested by the anti-gay marriage groups. They do not want their bigot faces made public. Many people have critiques that decision and rightly so. To the woman who asked on my blog if being against gay marriage meant you are a bigot I would like to say, if you spent money or energy and time crusading against equal rights for all, then yes you are a bigot. It was also made public that the Mormon church had even more influence in the campaign and has tried to cover-up their involvement. Something most people already knew, but was never official. They had identified a volunteer in every zip code crusading against gay marriage. Then the religious freaks keep saying that they get discriminated and abused as well giving examples of yard signs being taken from their garden, because everyone knows that this is about as bad as being beating or killed for being gay. The pro gay lawyers in the trial had a very interesting homophobe as a witness, mister  Hak-Shing William Tam from a Chinese American evangelical christian group. He said that if same-sex marriage is treated as a civil right then polygamy and incest and pedophilia would be as well. AND NOW COMES THE BEST PART. He believes that because(according to him) in the Netherlands polygamy and incest are also legal now after gay marriage became legal here in 2001!!. Who seriously believes that?? What a buffoon!! He had read that somewhere on the internet so it is true!! And that person is a doctor?? Great from the lawyers to get an idiot like that on the stand.
