Norman MacArthur and Bill Novak, both in their 70s, were finally able to marry in Pennsylvania this week after living as father and son for 15 years. Bill, who is two years older, adopted Norman in order to have a formal legal relationship, with all the rights that entailed.
Would you adopt your partner if marriage wasn't a legal option in your state?
Intergenerational relationships are extremely common in the gay community, the social stigmas and stereotypes having almost been entirely relegated to the past. But when does a man become a Daddy? Is there a certain age... a certain look... or maybe a certain maturity level? Or is being a Daddy a state of mind? What do you think?
Last night on AMC's "The Walking Dead" we were introduced to a new couple, Aaron and Eric, who passionately embraced and kissed after being reunited following a brutal zombie rumble.
"What’s also interesting about the kiss — and the real irony here — is that no one within the camp seemed in the least bit bothered by it. In fact, it endeared them to Aaron and Eric. Think about this: Rick is a Southern cop. There’s like three rednecks on the show, a couple of mullets between them, and there’s a preacher. And they don’t give a rat’s ass that two men are kissing. Is that what it’s going to take for all of America to finally accept men kissing? A zombie apocalypse? At this point, even Merle — were he alive — might have had his heart melted by that kiss. “Awwww, isn’t that sweet. Howsa bout a hug for your old pal, Merle, fellas?”
Outsports became the first LGBT publication to ever be credentialed by the NFL for the Super Bowl. Gay sportswriter Cyd Zeigler talks how fitting it was that a team from the first state to have same-sex marriage would win the Super Bowl the first time a gay publication was credentialed by the NFL with full access to the players, coaches and the game.
Congratulations Cyd! It's about time NFL. Is anybody surprised it took them this long?

Yesterday twins Aaron and Austin Rhodes came out to their father at the same time and posted the touching video on YouTube. The twins live in a different state from their Dad so they called him on the phone to break the news.

Father Martin Dolan came out as gay last weekend during a sermon in which he supported equal marriage rights for same-sex couples in the Republic of Ireland, where a vote on the issue is slated for May. “I’m gay myself,” he said. The Dublin archdiocese declined comment on the matter pending discussion with Dolan, who is away on a previously scheduled vacation, reports the Belfast Telegraph. One of the congregants said, “We are all very proud of Father Martin. Because he has admitted that he is gay he doesn't change the person that he was before it.”
