Favorite photo of 2012: Randell Shepherd and Larry Duncan

I thought Meryl Shcenker’s photos of Randell Shepherd, 48 and Larry Duncan, 56 in Washington State getting married was one of the most touching images of 2012.

I suppose our personal bias makes us see what we want, but I can’t think of a more compelling / touching image that explains why I believe the right to marry who you love is a basic civil right.

Equally touching was the photo of the happy couple arriving at the Seattle First Baptist Church to be married in a group ceremony with 24 other couples; photo also by Meryl Schenkersame sex marriage

“I do” support marriage equality

Year in rewind: BosGuy’s favorite posts from 2012

After reading about The Seattle Times editorial team “I do” campaign to show your support for the marriage initiative on Washington State’s ballot, I asked people to be photographed with the “I do #74″.  Thanks to my sister in particular who sent photos of many neighbors and friends I collected nearly 90 images through September, October and the first week of November.

I do campaignShow your support for Referendum 74 in Washington State

Yesterday I wrote about The Seattle Times editorial team’s “I do” Campaign.  Washington State has a ballot initiative asking its residents to support same sex marriage.  To show their support, The Seattle Times has taken the unprecedented step to create a social media campaign supporting the ballot initiative.

I may not live in Washington State, but I wanted to show my support and hope you will too. If you email me your photos holding this sign I’ll publish your photo.

The sign and directions on submitting your photo to The Seattle Times is also included in this link. Be sure to send me your name(s) and where you live (city / state and if you don’t live in the US  include city / country).

Email your photos to BosGuymail@gmail.com.

Marriage equality campaigns nominated “Wicked Awesome”

Marriage equalityWell, technically the category these marriage equality campaigns have been nominated is not “Wicked Awesome”.

The four successful marriage equality campaigns have been nominated collectively as the most successful grassroots organization this year. With their historic wins at the election booth, they make for a compelling consideration at the very least.

You may join me, by voting for RootsCamp 2012, here.

Much thanks again to blogger Joe My God for sharing this bit of new.

“I do” support marriage equality

I do 74When I read that the Seattle Times had taken the unprecedented step of launching a social media campaign to support same-sex marriage, I knew something fundamental had changed in America.

I rashly decided to post a photo of myself holding the I do 74 sign to express my support for those in Washington State and since then, each day have posted photos of others doing the same.  Photos have been sent to me by fellow bloggers, family, friends and blog readers.

Nearly 90 posed and sent in photos over the last 45 days

Today is election day and several states (Washington included) have voters going to the polls to determine if same sex marriage should be legal, and I feel more confident than ever that they just might succeed.

Special thanks to my sister, Elizabeth, for regularly sending in photos from her town of Amesbury, MA and to my partner, Sergio, for snapping more than a few photos of friends as well.

Check out the nearly 90 people who  posed by linking here.

Thank you
