Gay

Welcome to the New Century, Mr. President

Welcome to the new century, Mr. President, thank you for joining us. “I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising […]

Boys Beware

I generally find anti-gay bigotry disturbing, but sometimes it’s also kind of amusing. I know that’s wrong — that gay people face real threats of discrimination and violence – but some anti-gay nonsense just makes me want to point and yell, “I didn’t know they still made people like you!” Which brings me to Rick Perry’s culture-war […]

Consequences of Gay Marriage

Heh. Gideon pinpoints the horrible consequences of gay marriage.

Shocking News About Clay Aiken!

Turns out he’s gay.

“Do you, Party A, take Party B…”

Moby Kip points us to this story by Jennifer Garza of the Sacramento Bee: Last month, Rachel Bird exchanged vows with Gideon Codding in a church wedding in front of family and friends. As far as Bird is concerned, she is a bride. To the state of California, however, she is either “Party A” or […]

The Mild Inconvenience Of Gay Marriage

Moby Kip mentions the one thing I really don’t like about gay marriage: Software changes. H&R Block has agreed to give $100 coupons or free TaxCut software to all gay couples who incurred additional costs because they were barred from using the company’s online tax service, TaxCut Online. I understand how H&R Block’s programmers must […]

Bad For America

George Kocan has another of his crazy anti-gay posts up at Illinois Review in rebuttal to a Wall Street Journal op-ed. Maybe I should be more upset at such a display of bigotry, but I find Kocan so over-the-top ridiculous that he kind of amuses me. Let’s take a look: Abuse of the language for […]

Will The Gay Pride Parade Be Indecent?

Arlene Sawicki of the Illinois Family Institute is concerned about, well, what the Illinois Family Instutute is usually concerned about: Chicago parades include the famous St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March, where the Chicago River is tinted green in honor of the Irish. The Polish American Constitution Day Parade, held May 1st, celebrates the first […]

A SAD Anti-Gay Post

When Kip posted about the recent discovery of possible structural differences between the brains of straight and gay people, he predicted that it would make no difference to the anti-gay folks: To the bigots, all the research in the world won’t make a scrap of difference. If it’s not biological, then it’s a “choice.” If […]

Gayvolution

A recent study (hat tip Moby Kip) suggests that the brains of gay men have certain similarities to straight women, and the brains of gay women have similarities to straight men. The brain features in question have their roots in early brain development, suggesting that environmental and social conditions played little roll in their formation. […]

How Are Gay People Just Like Whales?

Kip Esquire explains.

Teh Gays are Coming, Teh Gays Are Coming!

After yesterday’s ruling from the California Supreme Court that gay marriage could not be banned, the Illinois Review posted a press release from the Alliance for Marriage Foundation. It begins: The Alliance for Marriage Foundation urged the people of California to constitutionally protect marriage in their state, while calling upon Congress to pass AFM’s federal […]

“…just trying to live a happy life…”

Every week, Kip Esquire posts a Sunday CuteTuber, which is video of some cute guy he found on YouTube. I usually don’t watch them because, well, my taste in men runs more toward women. But something about the way he wrote up the latest one made me curious, so I checked it out. Wow. A moving […]

175 Photos of Chicago Gay Pride Parade 2007

Photo Archive For whatever it’s worth, I’ve posted 175 Photos of Chicago Gay Pride Parade of 2007.

The Coolest Group at the Gay Pride Parade

Photo Archive These women on motorcycles were the coolest part of the show at the Chicago Gay Pride Parade. They’d stop and hang back for a while to open up some room in front of them, then they’d punch it and come surging forward, engines growling obnoxiously as they roared past the crowd. It was […]

Gay Pride 2007: A Few More Pictures From the Party

Photo Archive Here are a few more pictures from the big party in the street. Notice the woman in black? She was in front of me on the sidelines and I got a piece of her in many of my photos. My whole collection of photos is pretty much a documentary of her visit to […]

New Sheriff In Town

Photo Archive Tom Dart, who won the Sheriff’s office in the last election, had a large contingent at the Pride parade. I don’t know anything about him, but if this is how he rolls, maybe Cook County will be fun again.

Hey Everybody, It’s Rudy Giuliani

No, not really. But he was the first person I thought of when I saw this performer from a distance. Photo Archive Giuliani is nowhere near that attractive. Also, not so popular with gays these days. (Giuliani photo courtesy of Giuliani Time.)

Maria Pappas at Gay Pride 2007

Photo Archive I don’t know much about Cook Country Treasurer Maria Pappas, but I’ve always assumed she was evil because she keeps sending me bills for large amounts of money. I may have to change my mind after seeing her at the parade, walking the parade route and twirling her baton. There’s something I admire […]

Gay Pride 2007

Photo Archive Many gay people lead ordinary lives in the ordinary way, hardly different from the straight people all around them. But where’s the fun in that? I’ve never been to one of Chicago’s Gay Pride parades before, but I was hoping for something a little bit flamboyant.
