Queen Elizabeth II today signed same-sex marriage rights into law for citizens of England and Wales. The new law will go into effect next summer, according to multiple news outlets, and makes England the 16th country to enact marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples.
The law doesn't cover the entirety of the United Kingdom, however. Scotland and Northern Ireland, both part of the UK, continue to ban gay unions.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg released a statement today praising his country for its diversity and tolerance:
The creation of the first vibrator sends ripples through England in the new period comedy “Hysteria,” directed by out lesbian Tanya Wexler.
It is London, circa 1880, and Dr. Robert Dalrymple (Jonathan Pryce) is treating what he feels is female hysteria, which in this time period could mean just about any symptom a woman could have — stress, depression, insomnia and more. His unorthodox method involves inserting a finger in a lady’s vaginal area until their “maladies” go away; that is, until they need another visit. No one knows he is inducing orgasms.
After getting fired from a job where he butted heads with a dinosaur doctor who still believes in leeches, idealistic Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) comes to work for Dalrymple and gets his own fingers busy. Mortimer is instantly attracted to Dalrymple’s younger daughter Emily (Felicity Jones).
