Marriage Equality pop-up party in Boston

GLAD, TWC, The welcoming committeeWhile nothing is certain, there is a great deal of optimism and hope surrounding the pending Supreme Court of the United States ruling on marriage equality.  That ruling is expected as early as June 18th but could also be announced on 22, 25, 29, or 30th; the latter two dates (29th & 30th) are considered most likely.

In anticipation of that ruling both the Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) and The Welcoming Committee (TWC) are hosting a free pop-up party in the Back Bay at 6pm the day the ruling is announced.

Since the exact date of the ruling is not certain, check the GLAD & TWC Facebook event page for details once you hear the announcement.

Dick of the Week: Governor Rick Snyder (R-MI)

Governor Rick Snyder, Religious FreedomThe Human Rights Campaign joined with a number of other organizations today condemning Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan for signing into law what they described as “a package of extreme anti-LGBT adoption bills into law.”

For those who think PRIDE marches are no longer necessary, Gov. Snyder (R-MI) reminds us why we need to keep marching. 

Once again hiding behind that code language of “religious freedom” Governor Snyder enshrined special taxpayer-funded discrimination into Michigan law that allows discrimination against committed and loving LGBT couples from adopting children. Under the legislation, faith-based agencies that contract with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services can operate in accordance with their beliefs.

Let us be very clear the only reason one cites “religious freedom” is to codify bigotry. People who have claimed their religious freedom is being impinged have a dubious history; religious freedom has been cited for the need to maintain slavery, oppose a women’s right to vote, ending segregation, banning interracial marriages and now most recently providing services to the LGBT community.
