There will be an occasional post here before the Big Reveal Friday, January 3, when lgbtSr comes out weekly with new columns, interviews, opinion and news of note. I also want to do a write-up at year’s end of 2013. For now, here’s a video that accompanies the ACLU’s ‘My Big Gay (Il)legal Wedding’ contest.
NEW YORK – Millions of Americans currently live in a state that denies them, their friends, and family members the basic freedom to marry the one they love. Today, the American Civil Liberties Union is launching “My Big Gay (Il)legal Wedding,” a campaign that calls attention to the patchwork of state laws that allow same-sex couples the freedom to marry in 16 states and the District of Columbia, but deny those same couples that freedom in the rest of the states.
The campaign launches with an animated video of Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn asking committed same-sex couples to submit creative ideas for a wedding that crosses state lines from their home state — where they can’t yet legally marry — into a bordering state where they can.
