TGIF Video: U GO CA! And Kate

Clearly, some of us are a little nail-bitey over the whole SCOTUS decision wait. We already did a Wanda Sykes TGIF Videofest a few weeks back, so it would be a mite repetitive to repost her classic routine about same-sex marriage, before she came out. Though you do have to […]

TGIF Video: (Un)usual Family

Hi! Clare here to hijack Polly’s TGIF Video Post. Polly usually posts really great uplifting videos— and this one is beautiful and hopeful too. However, I am posting it this week in solidarity for the LGBT population in Russia who are being legislated as second class citizens. This video is […]

From Being Bullied to Being an Ally

Guest author and LGBT ally Sara posted this on her blog The Titleless Blog the Friday before Minnesota’s senate approved gay marraige (the photo appeared on her instagram).  Sara is one of those blog friends who became a real life friend.  I have “known” her through her blog since 2008 and […]

TGIF Video: NPH, David Burtka, and Oprah

Here’s a purely entertaining Friday afternoon video for you. Below Oprah Winfrey listens to Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka talk parenting roles and challenges during their twins’ first year. (Advert comes first.) This clip starts out with Oprah asking, “Is one of you more maternal?” Hint: not NPH! How […]

TGIF Video: MN Rep. Steve Simon on the Senate Floor

It has been a big week in Minnesota, as you’ve seen earlier this week with Vikki’s posts both documenting her day at the State Capitol and her thoughts the day after. If you check out how many YouTube videos of senators’ speeches on the floor of the Minnesota House, you’ll […]

TGIF Video: Listen to This Mother!

Closing out a week of Mothers’ Day-related posts (can we help it? lesbian family = a surfeit of mamas!), we highlight a mother reading an essay about (among other things) her daughter’s “obvious surplus of grandmothers.” This is one of my favorite readings from last year’s San Francisco Listen to Your […]

Happy Mothers’ Day, or How I Learned to Stop Complaining and Love Being Trapped at Home

Because I recently heard that exposure to greenery erases brain fatigue, I’ve parked myself on the loveseat on my back porch and spent the past fifteen minutes alternating between staring at my backyard’s canopy of trees and reading bits of David Sedaris’ new book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls. Truth: […]

She Said Yes

Here’s a visual departure from the prose entries in the Lawfully Wedded Life series: a series of YouTube proposals.  Because before there’s Wedded Life, there’s (usually) a proposal. Consider these fun prequels.   Do you have a story to tell about marriage, marriage equality, or the lack thereof? Submit yours here. We’ll be running the […]

TGIF Video: What Do You Know?

“Yes, elementary school kids know the word ‘gay,’” says the bespectacled fifth-grader, matter-of-factly. That’s how the trailer for the professional development film “What Do You Know? Six to twelve year olds talk about gays and lesbians” concludes, and by then the point has been amply made. By the six-to-twelve year […]

To watch with the little ones

Here are some short animations featuring LGBT families produced by Paka Paka, which is Argentina’s first public educational tv channel for kids run by the Ministry of Education, to watch with the little ones and since there is no dialog, it doesn’t matter what language you speak. 1) Mi Familia, […]
