The Paris Flat

John Saint-Denis, a designer, released the video above for Valentine’s Day this year.  It’s a beautiful video with a great ending.  Enjoy!

More Than Just A Couple

Today, in an email from Indiana Equality Action, I learned that there are 614 rights and responsibilities denied to Justin and I as we are not able to get married in the State of Indiana.  These are on top of the 1,138 rights and responsibilities granted at the Federal level.  So now we’re up to 1,752 ways I am being denied rights and responsibilities at both the State and Federal levels of government.

How can anyone reasonably claim that to not be discrimination?

Equality for Humans

A great little video about why marriage equality just makes sense.

Pastor on Obama and Marriage Equality

The video above is difficult for me to watch because the Pastor’s voice is pretty hard to follow just because of his intonation.  However, it’s one of several great videos which have come out recently from various churches ever since President Obama stated his stance on marriage equality.  It’s well worth watching the entire video!
