Recently making mainstream media: Chick-Fil-A has spent millions of company dollars campaigning against gay marriage. Their CEO and founder’s son Dan Cathy has publicly proclaimed gay marriage wrong. Now, Social media is forcing the story to the forefront ...
“Even now, I get picked on with stupid things. My aunt wants to send me to a camp where they ‘pray the gay away.’ “
And, thank God we joined you as one, and not apart. Think of how dull this world would be without our creative energy. It would be the light bulb hanging on a wire from the ceiling, without the decorative fixture — or the lamp without the lamp shade.
“I’m very much looking forward to visiting Atlantic City,” says de Medici, who will also be in attendance during Saturday night’s post party at the Pro Bar at Resorts.
'Everything we do as a society is based on love. I want to welcome everyone. Our arms are open to all aspects of our culture.'
The openly gay comic takes the reigns of the city's newest tradition, Miss'd America, which takes place at Boardwalk Hall Sunday, Jan. 16.
The show was created in the early 1990s by former Atlantic City Councilman John Schultz and his partner, Gary Hill, and held at their old Studio Six nightclub, once considered the epicenter for gay life in Atlantic City.
“To me, I live in such a gay world. And the way that I communicate and the way I talk about myself and the way that I am is very gay. And everything around me is gay. So I don’t know what it’s like to be in a world where that’s somehow a bad thing.”
Sometimes, recessions can present unexpected opportunities. For members of the Atlantic City region's gay and lesbian community, what might be called a civil rights struggle, an attempt to form a real community or even just an effort to create some kind of gay social life in the area, also has one other good thing going for it.
� In case you missed it, last week a New Jersey Appeals Court upheld by a 2-1 margin a trial court's ruling against marriages between members of the same sex. "Pro-family" (a.k.a. anti-gay) activists lauded the decision, while those in favor of gay marriage just saw it as a necessary hurdle on the road to a state Supreme Court case. The notice of appeal will soon be filed with the high court by Lambda Legal, which is representing the plaintiffs in the case (seven homosexual couples). The case will likely be heard by the state Supreme Court within a year. The plaintiffs claim that the New Jersey Constitution requires the extension of the institution of marriage to all couples, whether the couple is comprised of two men, two women or a man and a woman. Strong support for that argument can be found in Article 1, Paragraph 1 of the New Jersey Constitution, which states: "All persons are by nature free and independent, and have certain natural and unalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and of pursuing and obtaining safety and happiness." In January 2004, Governor James McGreevey signed New Jersey's...
When you write a newspaper column, you tend to get feedback from readers who either agree or disagree with you. That goes with the territory. The more opinionated you are in the column, the more polarized the reactions will be. My recent columns in favor of Atlantic City's stalled needle exchange program and the rights of gays to marry certainly stirred up some controversy. While most of the feedback I received on the gay marriage piece was in accord with my views (see page 12), I did get one letter in opposition. My exchange with that letter writer follows: Mr. Epifanio, For the second week in a row I have been in completely disturbed by your "Editor's Letter." I have no idea when this became a soap box for your outrageous liberal views, but I for one want no part of it. Most people I know are not for gay marriage or for needle exchange ... it makes one wonder what cause you will take up next week! Maybe a disclaimer is in order, such as "the advertisers do not necessarily agree with my liberal editorials," or maybe just don't write a political editorial at all. At the very least, have...
I Do… You Can’t.
