As of right now, there are only six states that recognize gay marriage. That’s ridiculous, but what’s not? The Pink States Project, which allows you to wear your support of gay marriage on your chest — in a cool (and pink!) fashion. Right now, you can choose from among the six states where gay marriage is legal and as more and more states pass pro-gay marriage laws, more tees will be added. Show your support for gay marriage with one of these shirts. A portion of the proceeds from sales will go to the Human Rights Campaign. [$30, Pink States]

"This is not the straight firemen's brotherhood."

On November 6th, the citizens of Maine will vote on a ballot measure that aims to legalize gay marriage. Polls are hinting that it’s going to be a close contest, but this new campaign ad, featuring four volunteer firefighters–three straight, one gay–presents a powerful message in favor of marriage equality. “When we clear a call, I get to go home to my wife,” says firefighter Eric Humphrey. “The guys I work with should be able to marry the person they love.” Major props to these guys for speaking out to support the civil rights of their friends and coworkers. Hopefully their words will strike a chord with voters. [The Advocate]

“I think that gay marriage is going to happen. It must.  We are not actually equal — humanity — if we are not allowed to freely love one another. What the Pope thinks of being gay does not matter to the world. It matters to the people who like the Pope and follow the Pope. It is not a reflection of all religious people.”

– Lady Gaga on a French radio show spit some truth that the Vatican probably found hard to hear. But I like the way Gaga said this: she didn’t say the Pope is wrong, she just said his opinion doesn’t matter to people who don’t follow him. We can fight all we want about who’s right and who’s wrong about the “morality” of homosexuality and gay marriage, but you can’t really argue with the fact that the opinions of other people’s religious leaders don’t matter to most of us. That is precisely why when bigots try to explain to me that their anti-gay beliefs are just religious, I immediately invoke my all-loving, all-accepting deity, the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

"Tie the knot... so one day we can too!"

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who stars as the lovable, tightly wound Mitchell in “Modern Family,” has a lot of big news to share. Not only is he newly engaged to his partner Justin Mikita, the couple is launching a foundation called “Tie The Knot,” which will advocate for a “more stylish and equal America” through the sale of limited edition bow ties. “We’ve teamed up with The Tie Bar to create a series of bow ties that are inspired by art and fashion, things that we love,” Ferguson explains. “All the proceeds will go to various organizations who are in the trenches fighting for the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans every day.” The accessories will be available in November, but even if you’re not in the market for a new bow tie, I’d encourage you to watch this video, which is a touching and funny appeal for marriage equality, featuring two people who are very obviously in love and want nothing more than to make it official.

Obama "Forcing" Gay Marriage On Americans

I thought the very intense lady who claims she “survived” an abortion, despite the fact that logic makes no sense, was the most guffaw-inducing campaign ad of the 2012 election. Wrong! It’s this anti-gay marriage scaremongering ad about how President Obama is “forcing” gay marriage on Americans, which is seemingly targeted at your racist grandma who worried that integrating the schools was “forcing” interracial marriage. If you can spare a moment away from your mandatory butt-sex, you should give it a watch. [YouTube]

“Thrilled Ann Romney says [Modern Family] is her favorite show. We’ll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam’s wedding. As soon as it’s legal.”

–”Modern Family” creator Steve Levitan tweeted this response to Ann Romney after she told “Entertainment Tonight” that the sitcom was her favorite TV show. As you probably know, “Modern Family” features a gay couple, Mitch and Cam, who are in a committed relationship and raising an adopted daughter together, although federal law prohibits them from marrying.  Meanwhile, Ann’s husband Mitt has promised to define marriage as between one man and one woman if he is elected president.
