A haunting look backat the Nazi persecution of homosexuals.
I wish I could see the exhibit, even though it would depress me. Florida is too far away. Photos tell me more than words, and this exhibit has hundreds.
hard to say exactly how many gay men were sent to concentration camps... between 5,000 and 15,000... castrated, brutalized or marked for “extermination through work.”
This is a reminder, also, that threats by bigots always need to be countered. This is what they want, again. Not an exaggeration - even today, people like hate group leader Tony Perkins are often on TV representing "conservative" point of view, and multiple leaders of these "conservative christian" "pro family" groups have supported and lauded the Ugandan plans for jailing, persecution, and in some cases execution, of LGBT citizens.
The photo of the two bearded gentlemen is beautiful. I saw it printed with a news article and it just made me smile with satisfaction.
This is really great news. Now the watch is on to see what the Supreme Court will decide. At least marriage rights are going in the healthy direction.
Portland Maine to start marriage equality at midnight, Dec 29.
via jmg, as is often the case.
via joe.my.god which has lots of great stuff today. What a cute couple. by the way, I remember when I moved 20 years ago to the Pacific NW. My Midwest friends said "why? You into flannel or something?" Never regretted it.
also this from joe.my.god:
Seattle city hall was fully booked up for marriages, so: "Judges will come into the courthouse on their day off, unpaid, to meet the demand"
I will shut up now before I start gushing.
By the way, someone who often logs into Nexus, also applied for a marriage license today, in Clark County WA. Nondramatic. People were nice.
No one ever accused the reparative therapy crowd (think Marcus Bachmann) of using logic, but their latest claim is hair-brained and hilarious. The purveyors of false science being forced out of play, false false science people will perform their abortions in dark places at night with coat hangers.
Thank you so much, Sentient, a beautiful film and message.
This is a nicely reasoned discussion. I vote for Matt Baume for Chief Justice.
We still have a lot of work cut out for us for real equality.
