The American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) just received word from the U.S. Supreme Court that it will discuss whether to hear AFER’s federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8 at its private Conference on Friday, November 30. The Court will also consider on that date whether it will hear one or more challenges to the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Hopefully this brings us a step closer to the day every American is able to marry the person they love.
While we wait, these latest two videos have been making their way around the interwebs in support of marriage equality. The first,”What makes a gay soldier different from a straight soldier?”, is serious and the second, “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends”, uses humor; both are worth watching.

Chris Blake is an example of why I love sites like Twitter. I’m not sure how our tweets crossed paths, but I am glad they did. Chris is a talented musician. I love his music, but music reviews are not what I do best. Instead, to give you an idea of why I <3 Chris, I’m “borrowing” from another TV institution. Today’s installment of Inside the Bloggers Studio will be prefaced by my own “Top 10 List”. [click on the star image to read more]by faryl on January 27th, 2009
