!! OMG, How Patriotic: WWII Veteran For Gay Marriage !!

“The woman at my polling place asked me do I believe in equality for gay and lesbian people. I was pretty surprised to be asked a question like that. It made no sense to me. Finally I asked her: what do you think I fought for in Omaha Beach? “

I started getting teary about twenty seconds in. Time yourself to see how long it takes you to start totally crying!

!! OMG, How Romantic: Mariah Carey Proposal !!


Hey, I don’t know that onstage at a Mariah Carey show is where I would choose to make my marriage proposal, but maybe that’s why I don’t have a husband.
Over at the Advocate, the newly-betrothed Maurie Sherman and Matthew Almeida talk about their wedding plans (Mariah themed!), what it was like to meet Mariah (surprising!), and other people they would like to propose in front of (Mariska Hargitay!).

!! OMG, It’s Here: The National Equality March !!

nem.jpg
So this weekend is the big gay march, and i hope you’re going. If you know of any good parties, please send the invites my way! (No LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS, though; I’ve been burned one too many times. You’re like, “Pay for my dinner!” and they’re like, “What are you, a SOCIALIST?” And you’re like, “OBVIOUSLY; what’s the problem?! Are you paying or what?!”)
Anyway, tomorrow night Nobel Laureate in Chief Barack Obama will be giving his semiannual hurry up and wait speech to a room of rich white gayteratti, and Our Lady of the Gaga will be giving a special performance. While I love the Gags as much as anyone, reader Arthur points out that it would be more appropriate for Janet Jackson to perform:

Sunday is the actual march and rally, and if I’m not still too drunk to get off the couch, I’ll be covering the event for OMG Blog, so say hello if you see me. Bring good signs so I’ll have something to take pictures of!
That night I’ll be recovering at The New Gay’s always fun Homo/Sonic party at the Black Cat, which you should also attend.

Have fun, be safe, and raise some hell. Here’s to legal marriage, the speedy repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and of course, everyone getting totes laid.

!! OMG, They’re Out: CHILDREN !!

What a day! First dancing infants and now gay children getting down together at outrageous preteen homo dance parties in Oklahoma!
Well call me old fashioned, but I’d like to know where the gay identity would be without a healthy dose of childhood shame and secrecy?! In the good old days of 1993, 12-year-old gays like me had to subscribe to the International Male catalog under our sisters’ names, meet furtively in AOL chatrooms and get our own homo-asses to the gay pride parade without being chauffeured by our supportive mommies! Oh, and also we didn’t have boyfriends in our pre-algebra class.
What’s the world coming to?! According to BenoĆ®t Denizet-Lewis, the New York Times’s most behatted gay correspondent (whom you might remember from his last NYT Mag article about annoying gay husbands), sixth grade is now nothing but a giant rainbowed-out orgy! And NO, OMG Readers, you’re not invited!

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]
