So I emailed myself this fragment to my QL inbox because I heard a joke or a funny one-liner that started, “Women are like tea bags…” For the life of me I can’t remember the joke! I saw it on TV or maybe in a movie house which is why I emailed it myself so I could post it later. But alas, too much time has passed and I’ve lost it. Nate came up with this thought so I thought I’d post it…
So I decided to retool and revamp my personal blog. I wanted to take the downloadable version of WP out for another spin. Check it out if you’d like, and tell me what you think…
A red state which just had some drama surrounding their “right to discriminate” bill is showing support for gay marriage.

Herald Weekend Post
Okay, you may be thinking that newspapers have been publishing images of gay weddings for quite some time now. You can see it in the New York Times, the Denver post, and the Washington Inquire…but this newspaper is based out of Africa. As many of us know Uganda passed the Anti-Homosexuality bill not that long ago and there is a rising tide of anti-gay sentiment in Africa. But the Herald Weekend Post in Port Elizabeth, South Africa has recently featured a gay couple Case van der Touw, and Shaun Luyt, on the cover. The publication received a large amount of backlash and hate, below are just a few messages they received.
This week marks the ten-year anniversary of the beginning of San Francisco’s “Winter of Love,” in which 4,037 same-sex couples married at San Francisco City Hall from February 12 to March 11, 2004. Those extraordinary days took the movement for marriage equality in California to a whole new level and inspired thousands of people to get involved. We now have the freedom to marry in our state. What the “Winter of Love” sparked remains highly significant as we continue the struggle for full LGBTIQ equality.
This week has been a blur already but I wanted to stop and take time to give us a birthday shout out! Queer Landia officially turned 3 years old Monday and I wanted to jot down my thoughts before the week slipped by.
