Vice-President Joe Biden recently appeared on the long-running political program, “Meet The Press” to discuss President Obama’s re-election campaign. One of the main topics of discussion of course was gay marriage – a topic that has seemed to consume a lot of this year’s political race. We’ve known for a while that the Obama administration has struggled with this issue but we’ve also watched them take huge steps to overcome the stigma such as the abolishment of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. But where does Vice-President Joe Biden stand on the issue? He states in his interview:

I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I don’t see much of a distinction beyond that.

But when it comes to Obama himself and the issue at hand, mom’s the word. Biden doesn’t seem to open up to much about where the President currently stands on the issue. He states that the President sets the policy and that’s the fact. When it comes to the question of whether or not the Obama administration will stand behind the right of equal marriage, Joe says he doesn’t know the answer. Check out Joe Biden’s interview with “Meet The Press” below. Do you think Obama will stand behind gay marriage if re-elected into a second term at the White House?

As you know, marriage discrimination against gays is unfortunately still an issue in more places than I’d care to list. The United Kingdom is one of these places where they are in the midst of trying to make marriage legal. Moments ago I just watched this amazing commercial titled “Homecoming” that shows that love is love no matter what. The advert is to encourage people to support the introduction of same-sex marriage in the UK.

As soldiers arrive home to the warm embrace of their loved ones, it’s set up to look as though it’s all women that are waiting for their man. As all the women run into the arms of their lovers, one man looks around for his. He then catches his eyes and you can almost feel the love coming from the men as their eyes connect. The handsome couple embrace and hold each other tight. I don’t want to tell you what happens next because I want you to experience it for yourself.

The video was made by the Coalition for Equal Marriage who strongly believe that “Equal But Separate Is Not Equal“. Absolutely true. Watch the commercial below.

A year ago, a new Jersey woman named Alix Genter was turned away from a bridal salon after the owners found out that she was marrying a woman and not a man. Outrageous!

In the most recent episode of ‘What Would You Do?‘ that aired on Friday, ABC News wanted to see what other people at a bridal salon would do if they witnessed the same scenario happening right in front of them – someone being refused service because of their sexual orientation.

This scenario took place at a bridal shop in New Jersey, where a lesbian customer is being turned away. They were of course actors, but the other customers in the shop were unaware. Watch the segment below (hosted by the John Quiñones) to see what happened.

Recently, Donovan told you about the fact that Jason Mraz would be the first straight man to cover Instinct Magazine in its 15 year existence. The magazine felt that all the work he has done and continues to do for the gay community had earned him the honor. This new HRC video he has done is completely in line with that.

It seems as though his upcoming album, “Love Is A Four Letter Word,” is merely to support and backup his greater purposes which is to fight for marriage equality. His latest single, “I Won’t Give Up” can literally bring me to tears. That song is playing in the background of this video where he explains that he is an American for marriage equality. I loved the song before, but now the lyrics have even more meaning as they are combined with Mraz’s message on marriage equality.

For someone that writes and sings about love and in turn has touched so many lives and relationships, it’s great to have him speaking out on our behalf. I heart Jason Mraz. Watch the video below.

In the magazine’s fifteen year existence, Instinct has never placed a straight man on its cover until now. They felt it was time to honor one of our unsung straight allies. Jason Mraz has been quietly supporting numerous LGBTQ organizations and charities for some time now. His support for marriage equality even led to the dissolution of his engagement. I’ll discuss this further in this post.

It’s only fitting that Mraz choose the gay publication as one of the few outlets to promote his upcoming album “Love Is A Four Letter Word” hitting stores on April 17. The “I’m Yours” singer shares a childhood experience regarding one of his best friends.

“One of my best friends in high school came out when I was a senior, and I thought that was one of the bravest things in the world,” said Mraz “Where we came from, it just wasn’t the popular thing to do or be. It made me more of a risk taker in my own life because I saw the example of the way he was living in just being himself.”

Along with this admiration for a former classmate, Mraz took a strong stance for the support of marriage equality. He, along with his then fiancee, singer Tristan Prettyman, said they wouldn’t tie the knot until gay marriage was legal. This decision put a strain on his relationship because Prettyman eventually wanted to get marry and have babies. Even though he contributes his stance to the breakup, he has no regrets saying, “It’s still absolutely something I stand behind and feel today.” Check out his Instinct cover below. The issue will be available next week.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream gay marriage! Ice Cream brand, Ben & Jerry’s have just revealed a new flavor called “Apple-y Ever After,” in support of gay marriage. The packaging is gay marriage-themed, with two men celebrating their wedding right on the carton!

This March, as the UK government debates whether to legalize same sex marriage, Ben & Jerry’s have partnered with the gay rights organisation, Stonewall, to raise awareness about the importance of marriage equality by renaming their Apple Pie flavour, ‘Apple-y Ever After‘!”

Ben & Jerry’s explains, “Social justice is at the core of our values and this is why we’re taking a stand to campaign for marriage equality in the UK. Show your support and help convince members of parliament that it’s time to say ‘I do’!” When gay marriage was legalized in their home state of Vermont in the U.S. in 2009, they renamed their legendary flavor, Chubby Hubby to ‘Hubby Hubby‘. Get your first look at the “Apple-y Ever After” packaging below.

A movie trailer for the film ‘I Do‘ has been released, showing the emotional and heartbreaking reality of a gay couple that faces being torn apart because of inequality in America. As the description reads, “This new feature length narrative indie film takes a look at the human cost of DOMA (Defense Of Marriage Act), the law that bars same sex couples full federal level rights in America.”

A British gay man living in New York finds himself fighting for love, family and a green card. Because he cannot legally marry his partner and have it be nationally recognized, he faces deportation. Even though gay marriage is legal in a few States in the U.S, married same-sex couples unfortunately have no Federal level rights. That’s over 1300 rights, many of them dealing with heartbreaking, life changing issues like immigration, hospital visitation, social security benefits, pensions and taxes.

The film stars Jamie Lynn Sigler, Alicia Witt, Maurice Compte, and David W. Ross. Check out the emotional trailer below.

Well I’m not Jewish but OI!!!

Take a breather before you read this one because it might get ya’ as angsty as I am right now. And breath and…

SO! One Million Moms is on another hate mongering campaign and this time they’re not even going after real gay people. For anyone who missed the Ellen debacle , pretty much in a nutshell, a nutcase group of women tried to petition against our power lesbian and all around good person Ellen Degeneres as a JC Penney spokesman. And they lost. Which ruled.

Well now, following suit with Kirk Cameron, Anne Coulter, Westboro Baptist Church, and every other homophobic douche canoe that can’t keep their outdated redneck pieholes shut, O.M.M. is on yet another rant but this time trying to put Toys ‘R’ Us in the hot and hateful seat.
