It’s kind of a tongue twister, but that’s the latest video response that originated about a month ago with unique approach to getting the message about marriage equality across: “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends“. Following that first video came the response from straight men, and more recently, “Gay Women Will Marry Your Boyfriends.” Now, the straight women have something to say.

In this video, the girlfriends of the straight homophobes speak up and say how “f*cking awesome” it would be for them to marry the gays that have said they would marry them. “The ladies that want fairytale weddings would actually get it, to a degree they never could have imagined,” says one woman. She later adds, “My dad wanted me to tell that he doesn’t hate you because you de-virginized me. He knows you didn’t de-virginize me.” LOL. Watch & enjoy the new video below.

Hopefully you’ve seen College Humor’s hilarious approach for marriage equality. Rather than using well-thought out points and facts to appeal to those opposed to same-sex marriage, the original sketch took an aggressive approach. Scare the bejesus out of straight boys by hitting them where it counts… their sex life. Gays in the clip threatened to marry all their girlfriends because they would be the ideal husbands. Turns out those tactics didn’t work on scaring straight men.

Scotch Tape Productions (Four guys who drink scotch and tape stuff) filmed a response to the viral video, citing why they would be okay with the gays marrying their girlfriends. This way, they could watch the game in peace while their ladies are off jazzercising with their new gay hubby, Francisco. LOL.

In the end, they don’t think gays will act on their empty threats. Why? Because the idea of punching kitties would repulse them. And I quote, “the idea of two vaginas in a room would be enough to vomit all over your fabulous loafers”. Check out the funny clip below. Side note. Is it me, or is the guy in the red hoodie kinda cute?

Props to College Humor for coming up with a hilarious and unique argument for marriage equality. Rather than using well-thought out points and facts to appeal to those opposed to same-sex marriage, why not take an aggressive approach. Scare the bejesus out of straight boys by hitting them where it counts… their sex life.

In the clip below, several homos explain why stealing straight boys’ girlfriends would be an ease. Why? Simple. The gays love to cook “a mother-f*cking quiche with a side of hummus” or take an urban tango dance class. Plus, we have power to get in to all the coolest art galleries because we know the owner, Maurice. To quote one of the guys, we can “play your girlfriend like an upright bass“.

My favorite guy in the clip is the one wearing a pink shirt whilst gardening. He delivers zinger after zinger including one involving going to Pinkberry after a hard gym workout. But my favorite is when he compares straight boys to Death Stars and the gays as an army of fabulous Luke Skywalkers. LOL. Definitely watch the clip. I guarantee, it’ll make you chuckle several times.

In honor of Veteran’s Day (and Remembrance Day here in Canada), the following video was released by Freedom To Marry and Servicemembers Legal Defense Network to highlight the stories of military families harmed by DOMA. This act unfairly denies married same-sex couples the 1,138+ federal protections and responsibilities that the government provides to other married people, dividing Americans into first-class and second-class citizens, with first-class and second-class marriages.

Veteran and OutServe-SLDN executive director Allyson Robinson explained in a press release, “We remember all who have served our nation so honorably; but we reserve a special remembrance for all those who have provided the same service, taken the same risks, and made the same sacrifices to keep us safe, yet are treated as second-class citizens by the country they are sworn to protect. The video we are releasing today depicts that stark reality painfully well.”

Well, that didn’t take long. The day after Maryland voters upheld the legalization of same-sex marriage, Baltimore launched a dedicated microsite promoting the city as the perfect location for happy LGBT couples planning their nuptials. Starting January 1, 2013 couples can obtain a civil marriage license from the state and hold their special day in the “Charm City”.

The city’s stellar array of historic sites, museums and other magnificent spaces can provide the backdrop for your special day to match your personality and style. Whether planning an intimate affair or a full blown gala, Baltimore is doing its best to pitch itself as the ideal location. You can use Baltimore’s tourism board and their free planning assistance to help ease the stress of wedding preparations. They can provide help in securing accommodations and group rates and suggestions for venues and vendors. The microsite also provides practical information on how to obtain a marriage license.

“We encourage the LGBT community to visit Baltimore to celebrate their commitments to one another,” says Tom Noonan, president and CEO of Visit Baltimore. “As a city, we have long been proud to support the rights and equality of our visitors, and the legalization of same-sex marriage is another important step forward.”

After 30+ times being rejected at the ballot box, same-sex marriage finally prevailed. Residents in Maine, Maryland, Washington and Minnesota cast their votes on the issue. Maryland was technically the first state to declare a win for the LGBT community, and it looks like the other three states will follow suit. Washington’s results won’t be official for a few days until all the mail-in ballots are tabulated, but the prognosis looks good.

“When the history books are written, 2012 will be remembered as the year when LGBT Americans won decisively at the ballot box,” Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said in a statement. “The dreams of millions of fair-minded Americans were realized as discrimination crumbled and equality prevailed.”

If that wasn’t enough great news, the election also brought the United States its first openly gay Senator in history. Democratic Representative Tammy Baldwin defeated former governor Tommy Thompson to represent Wisconsin in the Senate. Another openly gay politician, Democrat Mark Pocan, is expected to replace Baldwin in the House of Representatives, now that she has a new position.

I’m going to make this post short and sweet. We here at Homorazzi.com urge our readers to encourage voters in Maine, Washington, Maryland and Minnesota to show their support for marriage equality. The four states have the chance to give gay marriage supporters their first definitive victory at the ballot box. In Maryland, Washington and Maine, the question is to legalize gay marriage or not. Meanwhile in Minnesota, voters will decide on whether or not to implement a ban on same-sex marriage. As expected, just like the Presidential race, it’s close in all four battlegrounds.

Of the four, Maine and Washington look the strongest to legalize gay marriage with early polls giving the edge to the pros. Maryland seems pretty deadlocked according to the Baltimore Sun and Washington Post polling, while Minnesota is a bit of a wild card with mixed poll results. Some either have it as a tight race or with the ban being passed easily.

We are the furthest thing from a political blog, but we hope all our readers head to the polls and make their voice heard. If you know anyone voting in these states, spread the word on social media and encourage them to support LGBT rights. I can’t wait for tonight’s results from all the races. Fingers crossed.

With the election happening tomorrow in the U.S. there have been a lot more people speaking up and video campaigns released in favor of marriage and equality for same sex families. This fight for equality is certainly not specific to the U.S. and a campaign in Europe has just been launched called #InvisibleParents and it’s definitely worth watching.

The video shows footage of a family of three, with two dads and their happy daughter. As one YouTube commenter says, “One of the? best clips I’ve seen advocating for family rights. This video beautifully captures the daughter’s perspective as a child and when she is grown. Wonderful message!” I have to agree. It really made me reflect on the sacrifices my parents made and really makes you take some time to appreciate everything they did. You parents are just kids… that grew up.

Watch the touching video below – a heartwarming way to kick off the week.
