Happy IDAHOT Day, 10th Anniversary of Massachusetts Marriage Equality

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Gay RightsWe have two reasons to celebrate today – IDAHOT Day and the tenth anniversary of Massachusetts marriage equality.

LGBTQ Nation reports on IDAHOT (aka IDAHO) Day:

LGBT rights advocates and allies will observe the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (or IDAHOT) in more than 100 countries around the world on Saturday. First recognized in 2004, IDAHO commemorates the May 17, 1990 decision by the World Health Organization that decategorized homosexuality as a mental disorder, and aims to coordinate international events that raise awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights advocacy. Now, ten years later, same-sex relationships are still considered illegal in 82 countries around the world, and punishable by jail, fines and in some countries, lifetime imprisonment. In ten countries, a conviction is punishable by death.

Today also happens to be the tenth anniversary of marriage equality in the state of Massachusetts.

Boston.com reports:

On May 17, 2004, the state of Massachusetts offered the first official marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Ten years later, to commemorate the momentous occasion, we asked five Boston-area married couples to talk about what they’ve learned about themselves and their relationships over the past decade. When we opened the inquiry for the project, the response was tremendous. While we weren’t able to respond to each and every submission we received (we wish we could have!), we spoke with a handful of same-sex couples, who not only appear to have the utmost respect for each other, but also exude tremendous amounts of unabashed and unapologetic love.

Two great reasons to celebrate – remember, we shall overcome.

USA, Massachusetts: Adding Insult to Injury, Parade Lets Scott Lively March

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Scott LivelyThe man at least partially responsible for stirring up homophobia in Russia and Uganda and encouraging both to pass harsh anti gay laws marched in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Boston yesterday, while gays were turned away.

Seriously.

On Top Magazine reports:

Scott Lively, an ardent opponent of gay rights and a Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate, marched in South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday. The parade’s policy banning gay organizations from participating has been widely criticized. Many politicians, including Mayor Marty J. Walsh and Congressman Stephen Lynch, skipped the parade over the policy.

Could the organizers of the Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade be any more insultingly homophobic and anti-gay than this?

USA, Hawaii/Nevada: Fourteen States File Brief for Marriage Equality

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

Gay Wedding RingsMassachusetts AG Martha Coakley is leading a coalition of states that’s filing a brief urging the courts to bring marriage equality to Hawaii and Nevada.

Boston.com reports:

Coakley is leading a coalition of states in filing a brief with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals arguing the laws violate the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and should be struck down. Coakley said the experience in Massachusetts, the first state to legalize gay marriage, shows that allowing same-sex couples to marry only strengthens the institution of marriage. Coakley led the filing of the amicus brief on behalf of Massachusetts and 13 other states, including California, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia.

Both cases are reaching the appeals stage at the same time.
