In Dyke We Trust

It’s the time to hit the streets! Make some noise. Be visible. Be heard. Demonstrate, agitate, liberate!


I’ve been doing some really cool work on marriage equality that’s kept me so busy, I didn’t even have time for a proper green screen this week. But try to ignore that, because a lot is happening right now.

We’re down to the last possible second for marriage in New York, there was a major victory in California, new challenges to the Defense of Marriage act, bad news in France, and good news in Lichtenstein.


Today’s the day for the hearing over whether a gay judge is allowed to hear a case about marriage. It’s also the anniversary of the ruling that ended the ban on interracial marriage.

There’s just two weeks left to pass marriage in New York, but a Senate bill still hasn’t even been introduced yet. Illinois launched civil unions this week as Rhode Island debated doing the same. And a Michigan Republican can’t tell the difference between gay couples and child abusers.
