José and I were supposed to have a big gay brunch with 10 people, but when we arrived to the eatery on Greenwich at 1PM, Grand Marshal of the Gay Pride Parade, Edie Windsor, was being driven past. Not wanting to miss the whole thing, we canceled and instead watched over an hour of the parade from a fantastic vantage point on Christopher.

I know some people think they're too cool for Gay Pride. I wish they didn't. Gay Pride is a unique time of the year when one sees a true diversity of people coming together to celebrate what connects us. It is a mixture of frivolity and deadly seriousness, of politics and pecs, of drag and advocacy.

I personally have fun with it each year after having skipped something like 10 years in a row a few years back.

On The Outs: A Review Of Timothy Greenfield-Sanders's THE OUT LIST Comments (1)

TimothyGreenfield-Sanders with Dustin Lance Black

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders's The Out List follows his The Black List and The Latin List as an HBO documentary that serves as sort of a moving portraits of a number of LGBT luminaries, and by its diversity of subject, of the LGBT community at large.

WANDAAiring June 27 on HBO, The Out List is in some respects a simple, to-camera Q&A with famous LGBTs. Stylistically, nothing new. But the sum is greater than its parts. Greenfield-Sanders engenders (in some cases, the editing is a bit too aggressive) plain-spoken, highly personal responses from the people in front of his lens. In the same way that he showed a new side of porn stars via photography, many of these familiar faces are presented in slightly different ways in this film.

Most interestingly, the edge behind Lady Bunny's humor is revealed, not purposely, to be her anger over being marginalized by not only the world at large but by her own community, especially the young'uns.

What follows are memorable quotes from each of the film's subjects. Check them out, and don't miss this queer filmic time capsule when it airs later this month on the 44th anniversary of Stonewall...

I showed up late to the NYC rally in front of the Stonewall to celebrate the "double rainbow" ruling by the Supreme Court today, which struck down DOMA on the merits and voided Prop 8 based on standing. As I left the subway, I could hear Christine Quinn braying, but she was done when I stepped up to the front. (Or as close the front as I was gonna get—nice crowd!)

Doma-3

I did catch Edith Windsor thanking us for every ounce of our support and theorizing that the AIDS crisis crystallized LGBT strength and that her battle for equality on our behalf has cemented things even further. Lovely woman, and an honor simply to be on the same street as her on such a historic day.

Less inspiring was seeing desperate "WEINER FOR MAYOR" and "LIU FOR MAYOR" signs, although they learned their lesson when Windsor endorsed Quinn right in front of them!

Madonna & The Supremes Comments (2)

Madonna
Madonna has issued a statement regarding the DOMA and Prop 8 rulings:

"What a way to start my day!! I'm wearing a smile from ear to ear. There is a G-D! Justice is served. Hallelujah!!"

Yes, she really wrote "G-D" for God. But then, a G-DDESS can say and do anything.

It Just Got Better, Y'All Comments (5)

DOMA Windsor-Spyer-DOMA-580Heroic Edie Windsor, right, is the woman who killed DOMA.

Today, the Supreme Court has struck down DOMA in a sweeping decision that is historic in its implications. Additionally, the Court tossed out the Prop 8 case on standing, which means California has marriage equality (again) but which also does not make marriage legal nationwide.

That is next.

A big win today.

Apparently, one-third of the U.S. population now resides in areas with marriage equality. That is huge. It may take years, but every last state WILL have marriage equality. That is a certainty. Haters will grumble, resist, die off, and be replaced by those who can't fathom it ever having been any other way.
