Emily Saliers, one-half of Atlanta's own Indigo Girls, is a legally married woman. She announced the news at a Vancouver concert on Saturday, the first stop of the folk duo's Canadian tour.
Just so happens Saliers' new wife, Tristin Chipman, is Canadian. Saliers shouted the crowd, "I got married!" and explained the two tied the knot in New York. The two also have a nine-month old daughter.
Former President Bill Clinton was honored over the weekend with the Advocate for Change award at the annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, Calif.
The former president signed the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act into law and oversaw the implementation of the military's discriminatory “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” ban on gays in the military but has become a proponent of LGBT rights since his time in office ended.
Clinton credited daughter Chelsea for his change of heart during his acceptance speech.
Video blogger Anna Maria Hoffman wants to know “when it became hateful to support marriage.”
Hoffman, a contributor to conservative website Counter Cultured, tries her best Sarah Palin impersonation while breaking down the current climate around marriage in a recent video posted to YouTube. Hoffman is not a fan of the gays.
She begins the video by calling marriage equality “cool” and opposing same-sex marriage rights “uncool.” Well, at least she's got that part right.
“I thought the popularity contest of who's cool and who's not cool ended right when we left high school,” she says in the video.
