Queer: July 2003 Archives

Amazing. It's the top story on CNN right now.

I'm not a big fan of the institution of marriage. I would rather live in a society where we think people are valuable and should be able to have healthcare or be taken care of in their old age or able to leave their estates to someone of their choosing without regard to their marriage status.


Bush said it is "important for society to welcome each individual," but administration lawyers are looking for some way to legally limit marriage to heterosexuals.

"I believe marriage is between a man and a woman, and I think we ought to codify that one way or another," Bush told reporters at a White House news conference. "And we've got lawyers looking at the best way to do that."

Regarding Mr. Bush's so-called tolerance, fuck that!

Even as he made it clear that he did not support the idea of gay marriage, Bush appeared to issue a call for tolerance.

"Yes, I am mindful that we're all sinners," the president said Wednesday when asked for his views on homosexuality. "And I caution those who may try to take the speck out of the neighbor's eye when they've got a log in their own."

"I think it's very important for our society to respect each individual, to welcome those with good hearts, to be a welcoming country," Bush added. "On the other hand, that does not mean that somebody like me needs to compromise on an issue such as marriage."

I can't think of a more important year to attend Florent's Bastille Day celebration. There is nothing on the website about the event, so I sent an email and Florent Morillet gave me the info:

Monday, July 14
Gansevoort Street


Micheline: Full-throated red head will twist the heartstrings

Ami Goodheart & the Coquettes

New Orleans Burlesque

French Cancan

Dirty Martini embodying the true art & style of burlesque

Bunny Love

Mr. Monsieur the toast of Gai Paree

Mary Birdsong; Judy Garland does Edith Piaf

Remember to bring cash. Florent doesn't take credit cards, and I can't imagine them trying it with this event anyway!

I have German Class from 6-8, then I'll hop in a cab and be there 8ish. Send me an email or leave a comment if you're going to be there. James might get there earlier if he can assemble a group big enough to get a spot and save me a seat.
