Cruise with the Maverick Men Cole and Hunter

Maverick Men Mayan Adventure: Nov 30 – Dec 7, 2014

Boston’s most notorious gay couple, The Maverick Men, are hosting 3,600 gay men on a private charter cruise that leaves from Miami, Florida with ports of call in Key West, Mexico and Honduras  and you can join them.

Cole and Hunter make for great travel buddies.  We enjoyed our time together last December in Brazil, but we will have to miss the cruise since we’ll be in South America. Perhaps you’d like to join the cruise and tell me all about it? More info about the cruise is here.

CDC studies health of gay, lesbian and bisexual population

US Census Says Same Sex Couples jumped 17% in MassachusettsAccording to a new federal health report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), less than 3% of the population identifies as gay, lesbian or bisexual. (No wonder it is so hard for a single gay guy to meet Mr. Right. Quit your complaining ladies.)

The report is the government’s first large-scale study on the gay, lesbian and bisexual population.  While significant disparities were identified between the gay and straight population with regards to specific health indicators, they determined there is no general correlation between overall health and sexual orientation.  You can read more about the study and the findings here.

Oklahoma’s same sex marriage amendment struck down

Marriage Equality OklahomaToday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit affirmed the January 2014 decision from U.S. District Judge Kern in Bishop v. Smith that Oklahoma’s constitutional amendment that forbids same-sex marriages is unconstitutional.

The state of Oklahoma now has the right to appeal before the full bench of the Tenth Circuit or it can do as the State of Utah did for the Kitchen case few weeks ago and appeal directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.  Either way, an appeal of some sort is to be expected but this remains great news for marriage equality advocates. Oklahoma is one of America’s most conservative states and if marriage equality is legal here – it can and will be legal everywhere (and quickly too).

Florida flirts with marriage equality

Florida marriage equality So who wants to get hitched in Key West?

Today Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia ruled against Florida’s constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. Garcia wrote in his ruling, “This court concludes that a citizen’s right to marry is a fundamental right to the individual.” The ruling was stayed until Tuesday, July 22, at which point same-sex couples in Monroe County can begin obtaining marriage licenses, unless a stay is requested by the state attorney general and granted by the state court of appeals or Florida State Supreme Court.

I think it is safe to assume some form of protest by those opposed to marriage equality is likely but this is a great first step.  Hopefully couples in Monroe County will not be blocked from seeking marriage licenses on Tuesday. More info here.

Colorado says “I do” to marriage equality

gay marriage colorado, same sex marriage coloradoOn Wednesday, a district court judge ruled against Colorado’s constitutional amendment banning marriage equality.

Just last week I mentioned six same sex couples had filed a federal lawsuit. I hadn’t expected that I’d be writing so soon that Colorado would become the 23rd state to have ruled in favor of marriage equality advocates in the past 12 months.
