Hawaii is the number one destination for US and Canadian honeymoon couples, both straight and gay, for very good reason. With its very mild tropical climate and fresh breezes full of exotic flower scents, the island romances you as soon as you step off the plane. The warm Aloha attitude of the native Hawaiian people is so welcoming, they do not judge people. They merely love to share their paradise with all.

UK, Scotland: Marriage Equality Bill top Get Final Vote On February 4th

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Scotland Parliament - Google Maps

from Google Maps

It looks like we’re this close to getting marriage equality for Scotland.

Pink News reports:

The date of the final vote on Scotland’s equal marriage bill has been announced.
A stage 3 debate and vote will take place on 4 Feb. Tom French, policy coordinator for the Equality Network said to PinkNews.co.uk: “After six years of campaigning for equal marriage there is now less than a fortnight to go until the final vote. Scotland can be proud that we have produced one of the most progressive equal marriage bills in the world, and it vital that everyone who supports LGBT equality now contacts our MSPs to protect against any negative amendments being made and to make sure this bill passes into law with the strong majority it deserves.”

According to Pink News, 56% support the bill. I haven’t yet seen any reporting on when it would actually take effect after passage – anyone out there know?

France: Eight Held in Beating Death of Young Gay Rights Advocate Clement Meric

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

Clement VigilAfter a brutal attack on a young gay rights advocate in Paris this week, 8 men are being held in connection to the murder. Towleroad.com reports:

Eight far-right extremists are being held in connection to the beating death of gay rights and anti-fascist activist Clement Meric on Wednesday night, the Guardian reports: The interior minister, Manuel Valls, blamed “an extreme right group” for the murder. He said there had been a “dangerous discourse” in France for several weeks, a nod to the heated row over same-sex marriage and violent skirmishes on the fringes of the anti-gay marriage movement and demonstrations.

Am I the only one who thinks Clement looks a little like Matthew Shepard? I can only hope his death has the same far-reaching effects on France that Shepard’s did here, putting a face on anti-gay violence and turning many folks who had been on the fence against homophobia.
