The hilarious people at NonRandomNonSense have just uploaded a video titled “The Ultimate Anti-Gay Marriage Ad” and it’s so over-the-top yet bang on at the same time. The video pokes fun and the ridiculous and ignorant anti-gay marriage ads that have circulated over the past few years.
In the parody ad, a guy comes home from work and his wife greets him. He’s super bummed about something so his wife doesn’t hesitate to ask him what’s wrong. He drops the bomb that gays are trying to get married and she’s beyond shocked and terrified. Listening to the things they whine about is hilarious and things reach a whole new level when their little girl walks into the room.
As a side note, to give you an example of the humor of these guys, their YouTube account informs viewers, “New Video Every Time One Is Uploaded!” LOL. Enjoy the parody ad below.
Back in 2010 Laura Bush appeared on CNN talking about same-sex marriage with Larry King. During her chat with King, she revealed that she disagreed with George W. on the subject of gay marriage. A portion of her interview appeared in a new $1 million media campaign by the Respect for Marriage Coalition, co-chaired by the Human Rights Campaign.
Once Bush heard of her inclusion in the clip, she enlisted her spokesperson Anne MacDonald to release the following statement, “Mrs. Bush did not approve of her inclusion in this advertisement nor is she associated in any way with the group that made the ad.”
When the Respect for Marriage Coalition received Laura’s request, they stated they would release a new ad without the former First Lady. The ad will still feature clips from President Obama, former secretary of state Colin Powell, and Dick Cheney, former vice president to George W. Bush. Check out the ad with Laura below while it’s still online.
Since it’s all about love this month, I thought I’d share two more touching and inspirational wedding videos worth checking out. As with the gay wedding video from the Philippines (here) and the gay wedding video from Australia (here), be sure to have some Kleenex handy.
The first video is of a New York gay couple named Randy & Allen that recently got married and their video was only just uploaded to YouTube yesterday. Their wedding looked so beautiful and everyone (including their kids) must have had such an unforgettable day. Of course I got choked up during the speeches, just as they did.
In the second video, a couple named Mara and Elo tie the knot in the Philippines. Elo is a little person, while Mara is not. The things these two say to each other literally had me in tears. Elo says, “You know, I had a lot of questions for God. Why? Why me? I didn’t get the answers then, but now that you’re in front of me, I realize that you are the answer to all of my questions…to all my prayers… and much, much more.” Mara’s vows are just as touching, at one part saying, “My arms and legs are made to be the extension of yours.” It’s so beautiful.
A big thank you to these people for sharing their special day with the world by uploading these videos. We wish them a lifetime of happiness. Enjoy the videos below!
Now, this is how you sell high-priced scented candles!!! It worked on me. LOL. I admit, at first glance I thought the main objective of “Paris Flat” was to promote marriage equality. But after the third close-up shot of the JSD Candle Collection, I realized this was more than just your average product placement. It was a beautifully shot commercial disguised as a story between lovers facing a dilemma due to international passports and work visas.
Directed by John Saint-Denis, “Paris Flat” is about Paolo (Peter Calandra) and his young French partner Marc living in a cute flat in Paris. Everything seems idyllic. Problem is, Paolo is being shipped off to the US but his beau can’t come with him due to same-sex marriage immigration policy. But all is solved when Paolo picks up the newspaper. Splashed on the front page is the answer to everything. How convenient.
Apparently, “Paris Flat” is the sequel to “Il Palazzo.” Though it stars sexy daddy Peter Calandra in both, I think his partner in the Italian-themed clip is someone else. SLUT. Haha. Check out both videos below. Be forewarned, there’s a little bare booty sighting in the vids. It’s a beaut.
Illinois proved to be in a much more romantic mood on Valentine’s Day than years past. The Prairie State is well on its way to becoming the tenth state in the union to legalize gay marriage. On Thursday night, its senators weighed in on Senate Bill 10 and voted to approve the measure by a margin of 34-21.
Given that Democrats control the House, the bill will most likely become law. Illinois governor Pat Quinn has said he will sign the bill if it reaches his desk. Just in case you were wondering if voting went down party lines, it did for the most part. Only one Republican voted yes.
“I think it was the right thing to do,” said Sen. Jason Barickman, from Champaign, according to the Associated Press. “It’s a vote that I understand some have varying opinions on, but I feel that I voted in the correct way.”
C’est magnifique! France’s parliament has passed a bill that legalizes gay marriage and allows same-sex couples to adopt children!
The Associated Press released the following about the news:
“France’s lower house of parliament has approved a sweeping bill to legalize gay marriage and allow same-sex couples to adopt children. President Francois Hollande’s Socialists have pushed the measure through the National Assembly and put France on track to join about a dozen, mostly European nations that grant marriage and adoption rights to homosexuals.”
Earlier this week, I shared with you a very touching wedding video from a gay couple in Australia named Clinton & Callum. Well, there are more of these videos out there and today we’ve got another treat for you that will hopefully inspire you to find the love of your life if you haven’t already and share that love with the people around you.
One of our loyal Homorazzi readers, Karlu from The Philippines sent me a message to tell me that he had seen the video I posted earlier this week and that a friend had sent him a similar wedding video of a gay couple in the Philippines that was also very touching and inspiring. Alas, I have embedded the video below for you to check out.
Much love to all of our readers in the Philippines and all over the world. Hopefully you’ll all of you enjoy the video below!
This video made my day and potentially my whole month. A gay couple named Clinton & Callum from Australia have graciously shared their wedding video online and it’s one of the most beautiful wedding videos I’ve ever seen. It seriously had me in tears and I’ll tell you why.
As equality in the world becomes more prevalent and gay marriage becomes more accepted, gay relationships have the opportunity to become stronger than ever before, family bonds can also become stronger as there is less separation between your love life and your family, and special days like this can be shared with literally everyone you love in your life. Ten years ago, I couldn’t imagine being openly gay amongst my family and friends. Today, being engaged to Tyrell, and wouldn’t dream of not having our family and friends there for our special and I can’t even tell you how much it’s going to mean to us.
When you see the faces of the family and friends of Colin & Callum, and hear some of the things they say, you can’t help but be moved. One woman said, “You don’t marry someone you can live with. You marry someone you can’t live without.” Listening to what the newlyweds say to each other and to their families had me in tears. I don’t know how I’m going to hold it together on our big day if I can barely do so watching this. LOL. Enjoy the lovely video below.
