Kim Davis goes Gilbert & Sullivan

This brilliant parody set to the tune of “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General” will appeal to all the word geeks and musical theater lovers among my 14 faithful readers. It’s pretty much perfectly perfect. But somehow I doubt Rowan County Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis would get it.

Her turn to take one for the team


Titanium wedding rings have been in the news lately, and based on the image that NPR chose to use with their article (click the photo read it), I’m guessing there has been a surge in their popularity connected to same-sex marriage.

The USWNT & Marriage Equality win the World Cup


It’s probably going to take me awhile to recover from the FIFA Women’s World Cup tournament.

Some parts of the internets are going gaga over the new Tiffany’s print ad featuring a real (though conventionally gorgeous) same-sex couple. While I am always grateful for the acknowledgement of gay people’s lives in mainstream media, make no mistake that this is about reaching out to a pool of customers that in many cases …

My invitation probably got lost in the mail …


So my girl A.J. finally married her partner of 10 years and father of her six children last weekend. France is an easy trip from Sweden, but I was hosting American family members at the time and wouldn’t have been able to attend anyway. 😛 But rather than be happy for two of their strongest allies, …
