Who's The Boss' Danny Pintauro Is ENGAGED! But Marriage Equality Fight Halts Wedding Plans!

danny pintauro engaged

OMG.

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.

Danny explained:

SCOTUS Hears Oral Arguments About Prop 8 & Marriage Equality! Listen IN FULL Here!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

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!

Colorado Legalizes Same-Sex Unions!!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikInspiration

ellen degeneres portia de rossi colorado-legalizes-same-sex-unions-not-gay-marriage-yet

Hooray for small steps in the right direction!

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.

Equal rights for all! We can do it! Yay!!!

Madonna Dons Cub Scout Uniform And Presents Anderson Cooper With The Vito Russo Award At The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards!

This was EVERYTHING we could have wanted her to say at such an important event - and so much more!

At last night's 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, held in New York, Anderson Cooper was the recipient of the "Vito Russo Award," which is given to an "openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality!"

While that itself is incredible and exciting news, Madonna was on hand to present her longtime friend with his honor, and donned a complete Cub Scout uniform for the occasion!

Ch-ch-check out her rousing, articulate and thoughtful speech, during which she called on the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay scouts and scout leaders, criticized the Russian government for its imprisonment of Pussy Riot, and called for a much-needed social revolution here in the US of A (above)!

INCREDIBLE!

All we have to say is that Anderson is one lucky silver fox!

Her words have so much fire, passion, and most important of all, TRUTH, behind them, and we couldn't be more proud to have such a powerful ally in the fight for equal rights and a better tomorrow!

You can find the full list of awards and recipients from the ceremony…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Stevie Nicks Wants To Know Where All Of Women's Rights Have Gone! Quote Of The Day!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikSad SadStevie Nicks

stevie nicks qotd

"We fought very hard for feminism, for women's rights. What I'm seeing today is a very opposite thing. I don't know why, but I see women being put back in their place. And I hate it. We're losing all we worked so hard for, and it really bums me out."

- Stevie Nicks, on feminist gains and losses in modern society, at SXSW, via Rolling Stone
