Snoop Lion recently spoke out about whether or not he believes Frank Ocean's decision to come out last year will make it easier for gay people to be open about their sexuality in the rap world, and sadly, his opinion on the matter illustrates just how ill-informed he is about the LGBT community!
Danny Pintauro is all grown up and head over heels in love!
The former Who's The Boss star is engaged to BF Wil Tabares.
Here's how it all went down: Danny and Wil took a break from their hectic lives in Las Vegas to celebrate their one year anniversary in Palm Springs. Over a romantic— we imagine candle lit— dinner on Wednesday evening, Wil popped the question to Danny with a stunning right wrapped in a bow.
Could it be ANYMORE perfect??!
Unfortunately, the nuptials are going to be a bit more complicated than the engagement.
It's an exciting time in humanity's history people!
Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the official federal constitutional challenge to California's Proposition 8.
In case you missed ANY part of the explosive discussion, don't fret! Take a good, long listen (above)!
If you are somehow unaware of Prop 8 or the controversy that surrounds it, let us briefly inform you…
Prop 8 is a state constitutional amendement that received a majority of Californian votes in November 2008. The proposition declares "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."
Thus, any same sex marriages that had previously been recognized in the eyes of the law were no longer considered so, and same sex couples were (again) unable to legally get married.
Thankfully, this GROSS violation of equal rights is FINALLY being addressed, and on a nation-wide platform!
And whatever the Supreme Court decides, it's going to be MONUMENTAL.
Here's to a more tolerant, enlightened future society!
Governor John W. Hickenlooper signed a law into effect yesterday allowing gay and lesbian couples to enter into civil unions!!!
Permitting civil unions isn't nearly as awesome as legalizing same-sex MARRIAGES, but Rome wasn't built in a day!
The state of Colorado has grown considerably more progressive since 2006, when they passed a state law forbidding gay marriage, but the job is not yet done!!
Our country's equality advocates must not rest until everyone is permitted to marry whomever it is they love.
Colorado becomes the 18th state in the Union with legalized same-sex unions. Hopefully the Supreme Court takes note of this trend when they hear arguments on the Constitutionality of same-sex marriage in a few days.
