Update on gay marriage, Marcel, Jim, Rabbit and David Smith…

02 Nov

Marcel has posted a follow-up. (See also here.) It contains a dreadful pun… Carefully argued, though. Again I anticipate more discussion.

Very serious note: yesterday Thomas posted Today’s news, one item concerning someone he had been in primary school with: Reward offered for missing Matthew. See also Help Find Matt. Not looking good, that, and it does seem it may be a reminder of the dark side of homophobia.

Related, but lighter: I see in SX News (Sydney) a write-up of the 12th annual Gay Parade at the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro.

An estimated 800,000 to 1.2 million people attended the parade, the longest-running event of its kind in Brazil. Rio’s governor, Sérgio Cabral, made history by opening the parade: the first time in the country’s history in which a governor attended a gay pride event. The main goal of participants at this year’s parade was to urge political support of the bill 122/2006, which classifies homophobia as a hate crime at federal level.

M was there, as you may recall.
