The Courage Campaign wants to send a message to Ken Starr and the people who want the California Supreme Court to forcibly divorce more than 18,000 couples who married in the state. Do you know anyone who may have their marriage nullified? Or would you just like to express your support for those couples who […]
There are interviews you skim, and then there are interviews you read—all the way to the end. This week’s issue of the Advocate declaring “gay is the new black” nailed it, and Robin Tyler has an important message that will hit home at this moment in history—a moment that could be the tipping point of our movement. Robin Tyler and her wife, Diane Olson, were the first challengers to California’s ban on same-sex marriage in February of 2004.
In a dramatic, closed door lunch meeting, the owner of a renowned Mexican eatery in Hollywood expressed regret in her decision to donate $100 to the “Yes on Prop 8” campaign, but her remarks before a group of about 60 members of Los Angeles’ LGBT community fell short of an outright personal apology. “I’m sick […]

We’ve been abuzz the house all weekend, moving and assembling furniture between trips to IKEA (several of them) in preparation for the move in of my mother-in-law, Conny. I’m psyched that she is moving in with Bronson and me next weekend: woo hoo family!!!

Bronson (right) and I are off to a special location of the California clerk’s office in West Hollywood to get our marriage license today, the government’s recognition of our commitment ceremony which occurred on April 21, 2007. My friend Melissa called last night to tell me to be prepared for the demonstrators she saw outside […]
IT SEEMS LIKE I HEARD THIS SONG FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY, and the gospel section at the end really stirred my soul and brought tears to my eyes. I even have chills as I write this. What is it? I’m not religious / But I feel such love / Makes me want to pray […]
The Supreme Court of California ruled 4-to-3 to strike down state laws that had limited marriages to unions between a man and a woman. California is now the second state, after Massachusetts, to allow same-sex marriages. “In view of the substance and significance of the fundamental constitutional right to form a family relationship, the California […]
