Ambrosia Starling: Fighting Gay Marriage Is RUDE, Y'All Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 8.35.01 PMStarling speaks about Moore (Video still via AL.com)

Drag queen Ambrosia Starling is proving to be an effective and consistent voice against the anti-gay marriage forces of her home state, Alabama.

Chief Justice Roy Moore, asked to ID his greatest foe, named Starling; he's now booted from the bench for the time being, which she's still standing.

The Guardian reports:

“This is the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave’,” Starling said. “But right now there are people who are free, and others who are brave. I believe we can all be free.”

Starling prefers “she” and speaks with the soft, rounded vowels of someone raised in the wiregrass of south-east Alabama. Her harshest words come when talking about Moore’s professed Christianity. He was removed from the bench once before, in 2003, for refusing the US supreme court’s order to remove the Ten Commandments from his courtroom.

“He shoves hate and fear into God’s mouth,” Starling said. “He puts the devil’s words on God’s tongue. Very rarely am I met with rudeness or unkindness when I go buy panty hose and I’ve got a beard going, or I go in the Christian donation store to pick out a dress. These people are not as hateful and spiteful as the politicians are pushing them to be.”

Viva drag!

*widget boy cultureIn a diplomatic show of party unity, Bernie Sanders says the Democrats are “courting disaster” if they nominate Hillary “simply to protect the status quo.”

Dan Savage Compares Hillary & Trump On Gay Issues Comments (0)

Dan-savage(Video still via CBS)

Dan Savage made a lively appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, on which he summed up how Trump and Hillary would be as presidents when it comes to queer issues.

On Trump:

I think Trump is a dangerous demagogue and a racist, and will be bad for queer people if he gets elected—it will be bad for all Americans if he gets elected ... He has not really emphasized marriage equality or discriminating against LGBT people. He actually said that he opposed laws criminalizing trans people using the bathrooms that are appropriate for them to use. And so, it's kind of a mixed bag.

Although, he's surrounded himself with homophobes like Ben Carson, like Chris Christie, and he's promised to put people on the Supreme Court who will overturn marriage equality and forcibly divorce me 'cause that's pro-marriage.

So I don't trust Trump in the long-term ...

Savage seemed to be making the point that Trump hasn't used gay rights as a wedge issue, but then kind of remembered that Trump really has gone on the record as stating he opposes marriage equality.

On Hillary:

U.S. Diplomat Weds Chinese Citizen In Attention-Getting Same-Sex Ceremony Comments (0)

Hanscom-smith-and-eric-lu-x750(Image via Hanscom Smith)

Congrats to diplomate Hanscom Smith and his groom Lu Yingzong (aka Eric Lu), who wed in San Francisco recently.

As pointed out by Advocate, this union is not your run-of-the-mill gay marriage:

...their nuptials have sparked conversation in China about same-sex marriage, which is not legal in the Asian country. Lu is from Taipei, the capital city of the neighboring island nation of Taiwan.

Chinese media outlets have reported on the wedding, and photographs posted to the U.S. consul general’s blog have became a lightning rod for the issue

Another example, albeit a somewhat unique one, of how being out—including being out about who you're with and with whom you're puttin' a ring on it—does affect the world at large.

I hope the couple will have many happy years together.
