Tennessee, USA: Nashville Club Staffer Fired for Wearing Marriage Equality T-Shirt

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Tennessee Man FiredWe usually think of rock clubs as anything-goes kind of places, but the owners of Nashville’s Rocketown won’t let endorsing marriage equality slide.

According to Hostage Calm guitarist Chris “Cmar” Martin, a friend of the band, Wes Breedwell, was fired from his job at Rocketown for wearing Hostage Calm’s “I Support Same-Sex Marriage” tee shirt.

What I heard from him was a long pattern of discrimination against him for not being Christian and for supporting marriage equality.

NY: Mayor Bloomberg Will Preside Over Gay Staffer’s Wedding

Mayor Michael BloombergHoorah for Michael Bloomberg! The New York City mayor has been a fierce advocate for marriage equality over the past few months, lobbying in Albany and donating some of his billions to the cause.

According to the New York Times, Bloomberg, who has previously presided over his daughter’s wedding, as well as former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s nuptials, pulled Feinblatt aside last week and made the offer. Feinblatt then consulted with Mintz, who readily agreed, and now the wedding is on for July 24th, the first day same-sex couples can marry in the Empire State.
