So gay marriage is humming right along in the state of Arizona. The reactions, as you could expect, are emotional and intense. I was enjoying some of them this morning over my morning cup of coffee!
Are you a serious gay writer? Do you have a passion for all things queer? Are you looking to find your voice on this pale blue dot? This project might be for you. We are looking for like-minded, gay writers, to help us build a truly independent and unique gay media source. We are looking for contributors who like our mission and want to help us build a thriving, first rate blog.
Another victory for love! If you haven’t heard a federal judge declared that Arizona’s ban on same sex marriage unconstitutional.

The Catholic Church has released a document, Relatio post disceptationem, that asks “ if Catholicism could accept gays and recognize positive aspects of same-sex couples” (Reuters/Huffington Post). Seems the new Papi is all warm and fuzzy to the gays, and wants the Church to be more welcoming.
Frankly, I don’t quite believe it. It’s not that I think the current Pope is a bad guy (I really don’t know enough about him to make such a assumption), but he heads an ancient organization that has a pretty poor history when it comes to “the gay”.
