It's been way too long since I've posted a blog and I'm very sorry about that. I'm currently in Cologne, Germany covering the Gay Games for AfterEllen. Yesterday morning while trying to find something vegetarian to eat I was informed that a federal judge was going to ruling on the discriminatory Proposition 8 (which makes gay marriage illegal). When I heard this information I burst into tears from fear, excitement and starvation because seriously there is no vegetarian food here in Germany.
Since Germany is 9 hours ahead of California, yesterday seemed like the longest day of my life. Last night around 10:30pm while I was fighting with a German bar owner who wouldn't let my drunk friend borrow a spoon so she could eat and sober up my beautiful wife Karman called me from California to tell me that Prop 8 was struck down. Once again I cried but before I cried I got that damn spoon from that horrible woman.
The ruling judge, Judge Walker said, "Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples."
Congratulations to all queer Californians and a big FUCK YOU to Proposition 8! You may kick us but you can't keep us down because progress is inevitable.
