I slept through the Parade (I usually do...it's become too commercial and boring), BUT I wish I'd seen this float, and heard the cheers and applause.

Rachel Maddow - "It's freaking Utah" - Towleroad.

This is complex for me to watch and read -

1.  It's fantastic news.

2.  It's a federal judge, extrapolating from the US Supreme Court decision this year.  Not a state judge.  So this will go before the Supreme court, I imagine, in a few years.  Who knows what will happen?  I hate to say it, but Ginsberg won't live forever, and who knows who will appoint her replacement?

3.  Still, it's fantastic news.

4.  It's in context of some ominous news or repeated news  - Uganda passed their heinous law  - not Kill the Gays but almost as bad, and quite totalitarian, requiring people to report on people they think are gay.  And Russia being Russia, arresting and imprisoning people who appear to promote LGBT rights.

5.  In that Uganda and Russia (and some other places, Eastern Europe and Africa), Maddow describes the lobbying efforts by American evangelicals to persecute LGBT people.  That's  NOM, as she said, and especially Scott Lively, the more evil of the group.  Maggie Gallagher seems to have fallen out of the limelight, but her successor Brian Brown has fully taken on the job of spreading hate.

Nice effort in Germany, heterosexual men making a video kissing to support LGBT solidarity.

 

 

From the Queerty website, "Among the hunks sucking face for LGBT rights are German musician Herbert Grönemeyet, actors Ken Duken, Kostya Ullmann and August Diehl, members of German hip-hop group Fettes Brot, and beach volleyball Olympic champion Julius Brink. “Intolerance is not a state of mind,” they believe, “and certainly not for gentlemen.”

"A Mississippi Love Story" preview.

Something inside me still loves the South, and I'm not even from there. And I'm sure most of the South would not love me. And I would be miserable it there if I lived there.  So what is it then?

My all time favorite book is "A Short History of a Small Place" buy T.R. Pearson.  I read every book by Walker Percy.   I love Louisiana flavors.  I had 2 boyfriends from S. Carolina, both incredibly sweet and lovable.  Much of the food I like is a variation on Southern cuisine.

Touching preview.

WA State - widely reported, 17% of all marriages here this year were same sex. 

My town, a sleepy conservative suburb across the Columbia River from famously trendy hipster Portland Oregon - a state where the citizens joined hands and said "NO!" to marriage equality,is now a "mecca" for same sex marriage.

Doubtless, that % will drop significantly when the pent-up demand by long established couples is met, and when other states recognize equality.
