Call me old-fashioned, but the best romantic love lasts years longer than it takes to eat a box of chocolates. And keeping it strong is often difficult, emotionally challenging work.

Thatís also true of civil rights movements. And thatís one reason itís none too soon to start thinking about how to be part of Freedom to Marry Week, which embraces Valentineís Day and runs from Feb. 9 to 15.

They definetely need to come out and be in our face more. I mean if they don't flaunt it in my face I'm likely to ignore them.

Deb Price is a news editor for the Detroit Times and in 1992 became the first open lesbian to write editorials for a major newspaper. She now writes the first nationally syndicated column on gay rights. The daughter of an Episcopal priest, spirituality and gayness is a special concern to her, and she also focuses on legislative action and community building. The accessibility of her column makes hers the most read gay voice by a straight audience on these issues. In 1996 she published And Say Hi to Joyce, a collection of her columns with commentary by her wife, Joyce Murdoch. After fifteen years of partnership they were among the first couples to seek civil union in Vermont. The two most recently co-authored Courting Justice: Gay Men and Lesbians v. The Supreme Court.

Being a queer is a choice. An abomination and disgusting but nevertheless a choice.

Come out as gay or gay friendly.

If you’re closeted, give yourself a gift you’ll never forget this Valentine’s Day. Take the first life-changing steps of coming out — if only to me. I know how scary and awkward it feels. Trust me, it gets easier.

OMG, this is so gay. Why do faggies always have to announce to everyone that they are gay. I don't go around telling everyone I'm a heterosexual.

I'd say coyote ugly, but the coyotes would sue for defamation.

Which one do you suppose leads when they dance. How is that determined among a lesbian couple.

Every year MCC unites some 6,000 gay couples

My BS meter is off the screen. They do 16.4 gay marriages a day? Plus how many strait marriages? Vegas chappels can't even do that.

A quick query from a non-expert on this situation.

Presumably the individual states have legal agreements to honour marriage licences issued in other states. If Massachusetts issues marriage licences to gay couples, does this mean that the other states have to honour them unless they pass legislation explicitly not recognising them?

They obviously don't care who they sleep with, so why should I?

Best two out of three. Seems fair enough. :)

I thought the whole point of being a lesbian is because you are attracted to women, if Deb wanted someone that "butch" why didn't she just go for a guy?

Nope, they don't need them. The Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution requires states to recognize each others' laws, so a marriage in Nevada needs to be recognized by Arizona.

If Massachusetts issues marriage licences to gay couples, does this mean that the other states have to honour them unless they pass legislation explicitly not recognising them?

Other states have to honor a marriage legally performed under Mass. law. They can't pass legislation not recognising them. That's why it is such a huge deal if Mass. allows gay marriage- all other states will be forced to recognize such unions.
