What a GREAT speech!! I laughed at the "gay rainbow" across his electorate. "BE NOT AFRAID"!!
I saw that clip from New Zealand over at PZ Myers' blog Pharyngula this morning and was going to post it here, but you beat me to it, Daniel.
I like how he ridicules the religious arguments against equality. No politician here would have the nads to do that......and that's a bitter shame.
With so much bad news out of Africa, that story is uplifting and wonderful. Courage and love.
Thanks on the avitar - a little update to lift the spirits so to speak.
Uplifting from New Zealand, a beautiful country, gardeners' paradise, and now the first country in Asia/Pacific region to pass marriage equality. Nice speech below via joe.my.god:
On the down side, Australia's out-Atheist prime minister, living "in sin" herself, is still vehemently anti-equality. She's fought hard against LGBT equality. What's up with her, anyway? Even among atheists there are trolls and neanderthals.
That's sweet. Congrats to them!
Sentient, I like the new group avatar. :)
Here's an uplifting and inspirational story:
Two Men Marry in First Gay Traditional African Ceremony
Two gay South African men recently got married in what is believed to be one of the first gay marriages under the Zulu and Tswana traditions.
The ceremony for Tshepo Cameron Modisane and Thoba Calvin Sithol, both 27, took place on April 7 in the town of KwaDukuza in KwaZulu-Natal, in front of 200 guests.
"We see no reason to hide in darkness as if there is something to be ashamed about. Our marriage is largely symbolic and a sign that black gay men can commit and build family through a happy and loving marriage," he said.
I really wonder what the Supreme court will do. I can't say I'm super hopeful. Then again, that is a protective mechanism on my part, against disappointment.
As marriage equality plows forcibly forward here in the U.S., I think I'm even more amazed at how quickly it is advancing in other countries all around the world. It's quite gratifying to see such steady progress internationally as well.
Update on marriage equality.
It amazes me we have come this far in one lifetime. I never thought it possible. Now, of course, I'm frustrated that people in some states and countries are so vile. But the progress so far has added some sweetness to the bitterness that so often accompanies being LGBT.
Wow, how cool is that, to see yourself in that story?! You have obviously affected an untold number of people in a positive way. My hat's off to you!
