We’ve Got the Prop 8 Same-Sex Marriage Ban Blues


It’s been a rough time of it lately for gays. First Adam Lambert loses American Idol by a wide margin to that other guy. And now the California Supreme Court has decided to uphold the Prop 8 same-sex marriage ban. Luckily for Ellen and Portia and our friend Andrew Sean Greer, the 18,000 marriages performed before the ban will remain valid. Everyone else will have to move to Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, or Vermont come September (or get married in one of those states and then move to New York, where marriages performed elsewhere are currently recognized) if they want to gay marry it up. Blargh. The whole thing makes us feel extremely depressed and negative. Do you think this would have happened if Harvey Milk was still alive? This is even more depressing than the final episode of WAG.
