My friends Meg Liffick and Joe Ball got married yesterday.
When it came time for the couple’s traditional first dance, Joe read prepared remarks explaining that instead of dancing together, they wanted to open the dance floor to their gay and lesbian friends who are still legally denied the right to marry. 
This was a large and very diverse wedding in a state that doesn’t even recognize same-sex civil unions, let alone marriage. And yet the ovation that these people received while dancing to The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” was like nothing I’ve ever heard at any wedding. If there were dry eyes, I didn’t see any. 
Change is coming.

Rep. Barney Frank married his partner Jim Ready in Massachusetts yesterday, making Frank both the first sitting member of Congress to be openly gay and the first to be married to a same-sex spouse. Congrats! More.

From July 24, 2011 10:29 AM: “those people”

On the heels of gay marriage and what I expect will become more rampant. I wake up to have my father and my brother say “yay gay marriage” which made me hopeful about my usually homophobic relatives…. followed by this statement concerning someone I love dearly. “Usually he takes time when (his partner) is away to fool around. You know how those people are, the gay people are”…..

they both laugh hysterically at their “wit” and then have the audacity to invite ME to breakfast….I rolled my eyes, scoffed, said that’s not okay, and went right back upstairs…

I do not need to eat breakfast with "those" people….
