Here in Alabama, I was amused last week standing in line at the check-out and seeing all the Time magazine "Gay Marriage Already Won" covers featuring kissing gay couples hidden behind opaque modesty barriers they typically use for swimsuit issues and such. I don't know if it was store policy or some adventurous customer, but its clearly not a welcome thing everywhere yet.

I wonder what the reaction would be to a version of this Australian ad on US television:

"It's time."

How beautfully and wonderfully sweet!! And what a incredible loving and diverse group of family and friends they share their lives with. I defy anyone to be frightened or hateful of these two guys getting married and growing old together.

Love the warmth and affection in this, especially among the couple's families. What a lucky pair.

Love love love love love! For so many reasons.

I just came back from dinner and I'd just heard that a relative who is a minister refused to perform the ceremony for a close family member (they were as close as brothers growing up) and has cut off all contact ever since because he disagreed with his lifestyle. This video is the PERFECT antidote. I'm glad you posted this.

D'awww. That was incredibly adorable.

fantastic. The battle may not be won, may not be over and the struggle continues. But with utter unbridled joy like this on our side there is an increasing air of undeniable inevitability.

Gorgeous. That on top of finally watching the video footage of the NZ parliament just made my day. Even if I did cry a bit.

After so much sad and bad news, I really needed the chance to cry "happysies tears". Truly madly deeply -- best wishes to two guys I have never met, but wish all the best for. Sniff.

It makes me wish I were gay so I could GET GAY MARRIAGE-PROPOSED LIKE THAT.
