Romney the Liar.

Today’s Link

Greetings and a happy friday to you all!  Now that the GOP convention is done it is clear that Mitt Romney is a liar.  Why?  Well, possibly for many reasons, but for one that cannot be argued with.

In his acceptance speech last night he said that he would “honour the institution of marriage”.  He is a liar.  He won’t honour the many legal same-sex marriages from both the USA and other countries around the world.  Instead he promises to continue laws against them.  You can’t honour them and deny them/prohibit them/pretend they don’t exist/legislate against them etc., at this same time if you need me to spell it out.

So he is a liar.  Plain and simple.  I won’t give him the benefit of being stupid because he isn’t.  He is just a shameful liar.

Big love,

Ellen and Ann.

Today’s Link

After the heavy stuff of last night I thought we all needed something a little lighter.  So today’s link is all about Ann Romney and the fact that she likes Modern Family on TV.  How’s that for an oddity?  I wonder if her husband watches it with her?  Clearly they are fine with homo’s as stereotypes on telly but not in the real world.

Anyway, you’ll see that Ellen DeGeneres wants to appear on there with her.  Now wouldn’t that be fun.  I am sure someone in the GOP media machine is currently having a heart attack…..

The GOP platform across the USA

Today’s Link

Happy Wednesday to you all!  Today’s link is a really depressing amalgamation of the GOP platforms from across the USA.  It paints a sad story.  Despite the fact that some changes have occurred within the Republican Party there is still much that needs to be done.  The excerpts reveal that the anti-gay bias and mis-information that has existed in this party for years around gay people is still alive, kicking and seemingly growing.

A few snippets for your pleasure:

Texas: ““We affirm that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our country’s founders, and shared by the majority of Texans. Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable ‘alternative’ lifestyle, in public policy, nor should ‘family’ be redefined to include homosexual ‘couples.’”

Oklahoma: “those promoting homosexuality or other aberrant lifestyles should not be allowed to hold responsible positions over children, which are not their own, or other vulnerable persons.”

California: “We believe public policy and education should not be exploited to present or teach homosexuality as an acceptable ‘alternative’ lifestyle,”

You can read the rest of it for yourself.  Just be assured that the Republican Party is clearly anti-gay.  There is no arguing about that fact whatsoever after reading this.

National Organisation for Marriage.

Today’s Link

Greetings all.  Today’s link is really disturbing.  You’ll read in it that a gay blgger attended a recent seminar held by NOM on the whole marriage equality issue.  NOM are the main organisation working nationally to deny marriage equality.  Some of the rhetoric that this blogger encountered is just astounding.

I won’t go in to it all here as that would save you the horror of reading it yourself.  I actually read through the whole blog on Media Matters and that was chilling.  The fact these people are spreading such lies and untruths is really quite terrifying.  The fact that people are believing them and are fighting for their cause is even scarier.

Make no mistake we have to continue to educate and be visible.  It is clearly becoming more important than ever.

Big love,

Naked Soldiers for Prince Harry

Today’s Link

A little light-hearted fun for you today.  Not really LGBT news, but it does feature naked soldiers.  Who could complain at that?  The nice chaps decided to do a naked salute to support Prince Harry after the recent pictures in the press.

There certainly seem to be a lot of soldiers willing to get their kit off for Harry…..

French Marriage equality?

Today’s Link

A super short one today as I am snowed under with school work already.  Along with having run my first ever 5k this morning I am a little busy. 

It seems that France is going to be looking into marriage equality once more.  Although they have had various different forms of partnerships, marriage has never really been on the cards there.  That looks like it might be up for discussion once more.

Let us hope so!

Big love,

No post today.

Greetings all!

It’s Saturday!  Today is the day that I am going to be spending the ENTIRE day with James, my gorgeous husband. 

Earlier in the week we has our 10th wedding anniversary so today has been set aside for shopping, relaxing, fun, and dinner.  So no blog post as such today folks.  But I bet it makes all those people who hate equality livid to know that I am legally married…lol

Big love,
