6a00d8341c2ca253ef01bb08e9cf88970d-800wiCruz & Kasich are officially teaming up to deny Trump the Republican nomination. So much for the pundits who never took the guy seriously.

Former U.S. Senator Harris Wofford, 90, Marrying A Man Comments (0)

Former Democratic U.S. Senator Harris Wofford, who lost his seat in 1994 49% to 47% to young Rick Santorum, has announced he will marry his longtime male partner in a moving essay for The New York Times.

Wofford is 90, his partner, Matthew Charlton, is 40. They have been together for 15 years, beginning five years after Wofford's wife's death.

Imagine being married for 48 years and also having a 15-year (so far!) relationship after that.

From Wofford's essay:

Too often, our society seeks to label people by pinning them on the wall — straight, gay or in between. I don’t categorize myself based on the gender of those I love. I had a half-century of marriage with a wonderful woman, and now am lucky for a second time to have found happiness.

For a long time, I did not suspect that idea and fate might meet in my lifetime to produce same-sex marriage equality. My focus was on other issues facing our nation, especially advancing national service for all. Seeking to change something as deeply ingrained in law and public opinion as the definition of marriage seemed impossible.

I was wrong, and should not have been so pessimistic. I had seen firsthand — working and walking with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — that when the time was right, major change for civil rights came to pass in a single creative decade. It is right to expand our conception of marriage to include all Americans who love each other.

Unfortunately, Wofford voted against a measure that would have allowed then President Bill Clinton to end the military's ban on gay service members.

Murkily Anti-Gay Donald Trump About To Get Etch A Sketchy Comments (0)

Remember when Mitt Romney's advisor said the candidate would start all over after winning the primary, just like an Etch A Sketch? It was terrifically damaging to Romney, who became perceived as a say-anything/do-anything-to-win candidate.

Now, Donald Trump himself is telling us—in so many words—that he plans a makeover for the general election. Watch the meme above for some of his most transparent statements, delivered with a glibness that telegraphs his contempt for the intelligence of the unwashed masses.

Every candidate evolves, morphs, changes his or her mind, but this kind of winking sideshow approach to getting into the Oval Office should be rejected—and roundly.

Then again, the anti-gay gays among the Log Cabin Republicans are gushing that Trump will be the most gay-friendly Republican nominee for president ever. Maybe (hard to tell since gay rights hasn't been an issue that long), but a gay-friendly Republican is a person whose party's platform is explicitly anti-gay and whose constituency is overwhelmingly anti-gay. Also, I seem to recall the Log Cabinites going after Trump on his scattershot marriage position just weeks ago.

*widget boy cultureJock Jake Arrieta strips to his undies for money. His Saxx campaign is extremely voyeuristic. Plus, there's video of him working out after the jump.

*widget boy cultureYOUR LION EYES: Male lions caught mating. So much for all those arguments about homosexuality being unnatural. Grrr.

*widget boy cultureBernie contends that all the NY polls are underestimating his support. That may prove to be true (I think Hillary will win by 6-7 points). At least he doesn't say they're “rigged.”

*widget boy cultureIf ineffectual Chuck Todd can easily dismantle your defense of an anti-LGBT law, Gov. McCrory, you need to work on that defense. Video is squirmy.

*widget boy cultureDelusional gay Republican asks Ted Cruz what he'd do to protect him and his hubby. Um, nothing. Next.

*widget boy cultureLET THEM BAKE CAKE!: Is God a boob man? In a brilliant parody of Christian feature films, SNL says OMG yes.

I missed word that openly gay actor Sean Maher has wed

Intrepid L.A. gay gossip/entertainment reporter Greg Hernandez reports that Maher, known for his role on Firefly, tweeted the news by pointing out he had changed “Partner” to “Husband” on his Twitter profile.

Hernandez writes:

Maher married longtime partner, Paul (surname unknown) who he has been with since 2006.

The couple have a daughter named Sophia Rose born in 2007 and a son named Liam Xavier born 2010.

Maher came out publicly in 2011 while playing a closeted gay man on the short-lived NBC series The Playboy Club.

The fight goes on

Every American deserves to live free from discrimination—no matter who they are or who they love.

*widget boy cultureRicky Martin & Andy Cohen both have new young boyfriends. Judge Marilyn Milian has said May/December romances are “disgusting,” jury's out on what Wapner would say.

*widget boy cultureSo this luscious guy who's good at the art of the shirtless selfie may be too young for you?

*widget boy cultureThe Pope says the Catholic Church will never accept gay unions. But Bernie Sanders, he's okay with.

*widget boy cultureMorning talk show drags “of course” out of Bernie in response to question of whether Hillary is qualified to be president.

*widget boy cultureObama: “Mr. Trump's not succeeding me.” I'm going to miss this guy. No one we have is quite at his level.

*widget boy cultureThe Burger King gay-kiss attack may not have been a hate crime; victim, a proud Rentmen escort, may have been aggressor. That sucks. That sucks for gays. 

 
At Hong Kong Airport, Man Asked To Abandon His Partner's Remains Like They Were A 12-Oz. Soda Comments (0)

Via Towleroad: This is just sickening. Marco Bulmer-Rizzi's husband, David, died after a tragic fall in January while on their Australian honeymoon. Already stung by the fact that the death certificate had to read never married since Australia doesn't recognize same-sex spouses, Bulmer-Rizzi was further traumatized when he was stopped at the airport in Hong Kong and firmly asked to relinquish his late partner's ashes ... because he was not considered next of kin.

More of the story over at Buzzfeed. File this under: Post-gay is an elitist myth.
