Proud to Be a New Yorker Today
But that is the ONLY POSSIBLE DOWNSIDE of the news that the New York State legislature just passed a bill legalizing GAY MARRIAGE!!! Tomorrow's annual pride parade is going to be absolutely amazing, and the weddings starting on July 24? Even better. I'm so happy to be here today and to have seen this huge leap forward in the rights of all people to be recognized and treated as human beings!
Also, I hope this will change the language in my healthcare policy so that I can get coverage for my opposite-sex domestic partner. I find the term "same-sex domestic partner," which is sprinkled liberally throughout my health insurance policy, insulting and just as discriminatory as the assumption that a "spouse" is opposite-sex. But, all in good time, I suppose. Right now? Bring on the joy!
Also, check out my review of Courtney Trouble's BORDELLO on TheWomansPOV.com. A perfect day for an extremely positive review of a queer porn film, don't you think?
