Gay Star News reports:
When it comes to gay marriage, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan thinks the Catholic Church has been ‘out-marketed.’… ‘I think maybe we’ve been out-marketed, sometimes,’ the influential cardinal said. ‘We’ve been caricatured as being anti-gay. When you have forces like Hollywood, when you have forces like politicians, when you have forces like some opinion-molders that are behind it, it’s a tough battle.’
It’s not a caricature if it’s true. And I like that idea – hate is out-marketed by love.
On Top Magazine reports:
A gay male couple got engaged at the Frying Pan on Manhattan’s West Side with the help of a flashmob dancing to Nina’s 99 Red Balloons. Lance was led to believe he and boyfriend Harry were at the restaurant to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Instead, Harry prodded him along as they followed the dancers. Lance resisted – “Why is he taking our picture?” he asked – but Harry insisted before being swept away by the crowd. On the restaurant’s top deck, the dancers released dozens of red balloons, then parted as Harry, holding a red balloon, made his way to this boyfriend.
Enjoy! The actual proposal starts at about 4:00. Made me cry.
Edge Boston reports:
A lesbian couple urged New York’s human rights agency Wednesday to rule that a wedding venue outside Albany broke the law when it refused to book their wedding last year. Melisa and Jennie McCarthy, formerly of Albany, filed the complaint against Liberty Ridge Farm in October 2012. They’re asking for unspecified damages and an order telling the farm not to reject customers based on sexual orientation. Attorneys from the New York Civil Liberties Union argued Wednesday before the Division of Human Rights that the 100-acre farm is a business open to the public and subject to the state’s anti-discrimination laws. “We are asking for some damages. We are not asking for very much,” NYCLU attorney Mariko Hirose said.
The couple who owns the farm says their first amendment rights trump state law. I’m confused. Has anyone told them they aren’t free to loudly and continuously complain about gay marriage?

The Marriage Equality USA family lost a wonderful friend and powerful advocate this week in long-time member and leader Elmer Lokkins. Elmer and his husband Gustavo (Gus) Archilla became for many symbols for our organization’s marriage equality movement in New York State. They were together for over six decades before Gus’s death in 2012.
Elmer was a decorated Army veteran of World War II, earning multiple honors and acclamation before being honorably discharged and moving to New York City. There, in 1945, he met the love of his life and worked at the Graduate Center of The City University of New York.
