Gay-Marriage Pioneers Now Need Your Help Comments (0)

Gay-marriage pioneers Ben and Marcial Bolina Cable sued the state of California for the right to marry back in 1993, and were finally able to tie the knot legally two years ago.

Now, the couple is facing a new challenge—Marcial has a malignant brain tumor, and he needs some help from the LGBTQ community.

Via the Bay Area Reporter, Ben says:

The expenses have come as quite a surprise. Our insurance has peaked—we pay 10 percent of all the bills. What Kaiser is doing is wonderful, Marcial has a great team, but the cost is enormous.

Even with a sick hubby, Ben is thinking about others, noting:

We need to preserve and expand the Affordable Care Act.

Just another reason why we need to elect Hillary Clinton—Donald Trump and his minions want to gut the Affordable Care Act, and have no plan to replace it with anything.

Too Hot To Fail?: Republican Accused Of Sexting With 17-Year-Old Finds Gay Defenders Comments (0)

12717283_1065059936850291_2024808027389844163_nRemember when Bush helped make gay marriage unconstitutional in many states? Yenni loves him! (Image via Facebook)

I remember when gay people used to have their eye on the ball, but now they just have their eye on the balls.

Why can't you do both—be sexual and also be capable of seeing the big picture, politically, when it comes to who our friends and enemies are?

This comes up after reading the comments on Queerty's post about Mike Yenni, a Republican, married Louisiana Parish President who has been accused of sexting with a 17-year-old boy, meeting him in a mall bathroom stall to give him sexy underwear and make out, and suggesting to him that they have a three-way with a 19-year-old.

Instead of laughing or being angry at the man's hypocrisy, most of the comments are either distracted by how HOT this DADDY is (I know Tom of Finland sexualized Nazis, but sheesh), or by how this is all none of our business (because 17 is the age of consent there).

Excuse me, but it is our business. The guy is an elected official who has pledged allegiance to the Republican Party. Read their platform on gay issues, please. Family values as a phrase has been used as a cudgel against LGBTQ people for decades, and this guy, hiding in the closet, is banging teenage boys while he's giving the appearance of being Mr. Straight-and-Narrow, and while his Party is pursuing aggressively anti-LGBTQ laws and measures.

Some have said he hasn't voted on anti-LGBTQ measures. So? He's a Republican—that was his blanket vote against us.

Also, removing the politics from it, how can these people not accept that a public figure's personal sexual conduct is, in fact, of interest? Are we not in the midst of hearing all about Bill Clinton's many infidelities all over again, and Trump's? There is a salacious desire to know, and when the conduct is occurring from someone claiming to be against that sort of thing, it's all the more newsworthy.

Jesus Christ, it's now to the point where gay people are so turned on by sexual situations they can't be disgusted by the hypocrisy of a guy like Mike Yenni? We're actually arguing for his privacy while his Party argues against the right of a trans person to take a piss?!

*widget boy cultureAndy Mientus reminds us that bisexuality exists:

 

Hey so it's #biweek- the week for the Bi kids to be visible. I try to be visible all the time just by being true to who I am openly, but I know many people struggle with this because of the stigma associated with bi-ness. I know that some of you, probably friends even, are reading this and rolling your eyes- "oh he's still holding on to that? Who is SHE kidding?"- and I don't blame you. Not many are open about it so we appear to be very rare creatures, maybe even mythical. I've definitely felt the pressure to just accept being lumped in as gay when I meet new people- correcting them feels super political and unnecessary in the moment but then later I realize that it's my own shame. I don't write this to position myself as an activist or a role model. I try to be the best person I can be always but I am just an actor, not a queer-studies professor, and I am learning along with everyone else. I have and will continue to put my foot in my mouth on issues so I won't pretend to know everything. What I do know is that because of my platform as an actor, kids reach out to me almost daily confused about their sexuality and it breaks my heart to learn that they are denying their hearts, bodies, and souls just because of what other people will think of them. We now talk about LGBT+ issues constantly but how often do we really consider the B in there? Have you ever doubted someone who tells you they are Bi- "Sure, Jan"- or debated the validity of that claim behind their back? Do you have a preconceived idea of what bi "really" looks like based on what TV and movies have told you? Do you think of it just as a sexual kink or as a true identity? When I encounter ignorance about my identity, I always try to approach it from a place of warmth and education, so this is not me lecturing the monosexuals out there. I'm inviting you this week to think about your own feelings towards bisexuals and ask yourself if there is any lingering doubt or prejudice there. If you think you could be bi, ask yourself what is holding you back from accepting it- is it your own developing feelings or your fear of society around you? Together, we can end that stigma. 🏳️‍🌈 📷: @lukefontana
