Change We Can Believe In??

Senator Ted Kennedy's emotional speech @ the Dems Convention actually included a reference to our LGBT Community. He said, "Barack Obama will close the book on race, gender, group against group, straight against gay. Barack Obama will be a commander in chief that will ensure that our fighting men & women will be committed to a mission worthy of their bravery." Unfortunately this speech was not covered by the networks. You had to be watching CNN to catch it & when it was reviewed by the CNN commentators afterwards, including Anderson Cooper, this part of his speech was omitted from their discussion...Watch Speech.....
Michelle Obama speech @ the Dems Convention didn't include many reference to our community even though she's been wooing our LGBT Community for months.... Read More...She did however thank Hillary for cracking the glass ceiling in receiving 18 million votes in her bid for the Presidency while a petition circulated on the floor to nominate Senator Clinton. Watch Speech... The next few days should be interesting.....:)
There's been so many comparisons of Michelle to Jackie....
Hmmm.....:) Updates to come....
Monday the Dems began what will be an eventful Convention. :) We spent over a year listening to Obama's camp telling us how he stands for change. Picking Senator Bidin as his running mate was the best move he could make next to choosing Hillary..... However this entire campaign is becoming a bit of a mid 20th century retro flashback. Like John F. Kennedy picking Lyndon Johnson the junior Senator from Illinois selects the seasoned Senator from Delaware.....:) Updates to come......

Sandra Bernhard Does Provincetown :)

Sandra Bernhard performed 4 sold-out shows @ the Vixen
in P-Town this week. She was previewing her 20th Anniversary
landmark show "Without You I'm Nothing" which kicks off in
Washington DC on Sept. 9th. With Musical Director Mitch
Kaplan, Ms Bernhard began her performance singing "New
York City Girl" with some hip jokes & remarks as she strolled
down the center aisle running into Lea Delaria who was leaning
against the bar. Sandra wanted to know if she needed a seat.
The 2 joked a bit then Bernhard continued her performance
of singing & chat that ran a little over an hour...Some of the
highlights were when she said she called Ellen DeGeneres to
congratulate her on her marriage then she paused & said she's
giving it 5 years.....:) She's down on "Sex in The City"
which she feels isn't hip & ruined NYC. Politically she said
she doesn't like the times we're living in but likes the journey
remembering the past. Her songs are Great!! Someone from
the audience shouted OUT "Keep it up Sister." She replied
"I have no other choice....." For more info.....

Ellen & Portia's Fabulous Gay Marriage

Well it's about time they made it legal....:) It seems there was quite the activity @ their California digs. Read More... It's been reported that Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi were planning an August Wedding & Saturday was their Big Day!! We @ OUTTAKE Media wish them the best!!
Unfortunately there will always be people who are against equality. Here in Massachusetts gay marriage has been the law for 4 years & we've recently repealed that nasty 1913 law so that out-of-state couples are welcomed to marry in the Bay State. Now it appears that opponents to gay marriage are @ it again trying to get a question on the ballot to reverse this decision. Let's hope the homophobes are unsuccessful once again. Updates to come...

Woodstock 40 Years Ago, A Reflection...:)

New Interview w/ Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin on LGBT Civil Rights & the Obama administration @OUTTAKE VOICES™
I went to Woodstock. We climbed into Rob's Ford van & drove all night from Gloucester, MA to Bethel, NY. There were 4 of us. Patrick, Rob, Ann & me. I was the only one with tickets. My friend Sue & I had taken the train to Cambridge to buy them for $18 @ the Harvard Coop. I figured if I bought the tickets my parents would have to let me go. After a bit of persuasion they gave in. The experience changed the course of my life...Let us know your stories....:)

Lorne Michaels Supports John McCain

Lorne Michaels, the Creator & Executive Producer of Saturday Night Live has given a campaign contribution to John McCain. You'd think this was just a bad skit from the show but it seems it's actually true. We uncovered this nasty fact in "Politico's" story about ex-SNL'er Dennis Miller. Miller who calls himself a moderate is also a supporter of gay marriage. Read More...
When you think about the greats of Saturday Night Live you can't help wonder where this country is headed when people like Lorne Michaels supports a candidate who's against equality for our LGBT community.....
I was backstage @ the Newport Jazz Festival this weekend which was hosted by Chevy Chase. If I had known this dish on Michaels perhaps I would have asked him his opinion. Oh well.....:)

Gay Marriage Massachusetts Style :)

I was in P-Town when the story broke that Massachusetts finally repealed that nasty 1913 Law & gay marriage would be only a car ride away for many of our LGBT community. Just think of the thousands of loving gay couples that will be taking the trip to exchange vows here. What a difference a week makes.....:) For those of you who were thinking about marrying in California where gay marriage is also the law but were concerned about the OUTcome of the November ballot just adjust your destination & come to Massachusetts where gay marriage has been the law for 4 fabulous years!! Provincetown in the summer would be a great choice.....

Rep. Sally Kern is @ it Again…. :)

Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, whose infamous claim to fame was saying that "homosexuality poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than terrorism" told members of the Cleveland County Republican Club Tuesday she is a "cultural warrior for Judeo-Christian values.” Kern said “I am not saying everyone has to be Christian; this is not a homogenous nation. What you have to be is someone who believes in a Judeo-Christian ethic, in other words, in knowing there's a right & wrong. Not all lifestyles are equal; not all religions are equal," she said. "Was I saying all people are not equal? Heavens no; we were all created equal." Kern repeated her opposition to gay marriage & homosexuality, though the lawmaker said she supports people's individual rights.

The good news is that Dem Ron Marlett, 59, of Warr Acres, is challenging Kern for the District 84 House seat & is expected to win. Marlett has said he wants to represent all the district's residents "equally with no discrimination as to race, religion, gender or sexual preference." Updates to Come….

CDC Releases New HIV Data…..

New data just released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reveal that the epidemic of HIV in America is far worse than previously suspected. The CDC report estimates that 56,300 people per year contract HIV in this country, an increase of 40% over previous estimates. While the disease has been on the decline among intravenous drug users & heterosexuals, the gay & bisexual community accounts for 53% of new cases annually. Data also indicate the disease has a disproportionate impact on African Americans, who contract the disease at a rate seven times higher than whites. One of the reasons for the increase is that those participating in unsafe sex are not getting tested & aren't aware that they’re HIV positive. So Please Practice Safe Sex & Get Tested...:)
