For those of you who have been asking why I haven’t had as many blog posts up this fall as I usually do, I let you know that there were some deaths in my partner’s family, as well as our wedding. Lots of you have been asking for some wedding porn, so here are a few pictures to whet your queer celebration of LOVE appetite. All photos by Jesse Hernandez of www.JesseHernandezPhotos.com. He’s an awesome Denver based LGBTQ photographer. Enjoy!
This is win. It is so much win.
That said, I really prefer the term marriage equality over same sex marriage or gay marriage. Why? Because not everyone who wants the ability to marry identifies as gay (lesbian, queer, bi, or a couple with a trans person who now identifies as straight), and unless you’re checking chromosomes, you don’t really know if people are the same sex.
All of this said, I love love love this picture, and think it makes a brilliant point, both for marriage equality, and hopefully eventual gender/sex equality, that our country has still yet to practice.
Plus, I love me some animal macros in the morning.
I’m not going to lie. I’m not usually much of a Sarah Silverman fan. In fact, I don’t like most “main stream” comedians. Give me good ol’ British wit (Monty Python, Are You Being Served, Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers, Eddie Izzard) any day.
However, Sarah Silverman said something that I think is important to talk about. She talked about marriage equality, and compared it to the racial exclusive country clubs. Why would you want to belong to such an organizations that promotes inequality and hate?
So I take my hat off to Sarah Silverman. Whether I like her jokes her not, I do like her stand and the way she’s gone about speaking on this issue.
