    Quick Story:
    Stephen Mosher and Pat Dwyer have decided to be married in every state where they legally do so to celibate their 25th year together. They brought Allan Piper along for the ride to film and edit together a documentary. The documentary will be called Married and Counting. The last stop was in DC April 25 (today) and an official trailer is now on their blog.

    I'm not usually an impulse buyer, but I'd buy that in an instant if it were available now.

    Well as a homosexual, one of the real gays; not bisexual. Who is in a 20+ year relasionship. I have no need for such bullshit, to celebrate our union.

    Marriage is a heterosexual institution, with deep embedded roots in religion. Albeit one our half brothers the bisexuals have long had access to and it's benefits.

    But my man and I are neither heterosexual, I belong to no religion. marrage does not help may the bills or to put food on the table, and I can say I love you in our backyard, walking along a black beach of Hawaii. We don't need a piece of paper to say it; we can even say it without words.

    Seems like a whole lot of drama about nothing, to me.

    Where is the love?

    Sure one is a true blue aussie, the real thing, and not some cheap import. Yet newcomers to Oz, like our Welsh born Prime Minister Julia Gillard get more rights in Oz than I do, new Australians people only 1,2,3 generations born to Oz get more rights than I do. I could scream like a wet cat, at the discrimination of it all. yet marriage is a heterosexual institution. I want equality as a pure homosexual, but not under a heterosexual banner of marrage.

    Recently, I've been thinking a lot about doing some gay rights activism after I retire from the Army next year. I've been thinking rather boldly. If I retire back to Louisiana, where I'm from, I want to lead an effort to repeal the Louisiana constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. I know, I know...that's impossible. I want Louisiana to be the first state in the South to do so. The biggest obstacle is the heavy influence of religion on the society, particularly Catholic and Baptist. Most likely, I think the Supreme Court would strike down state bans before a state like Louisiana can do it on its own. But it's worth a shot. It's nerve-racking to even think of doing this.

    The NATIONAL political winds will be at your back.
    You could help to direct some of the winds into Louisiana.

    good for them. glad to see that they have the cajones to do this, especially at such a critical time for gay rights.
