My dad is making a documentary about the fight for marriage equality and its origins in Vermont. This is both an important topic in general and a highly personal one for me: Vermont is where I grew up. My dad was involved in local politics and local radio (Night Vale’s right on the money, let me tell you), so he’s known a lot of the people involved in the struggle to legalize gay marriage for 20 years. I worked as a page in the State Capitol and was there when the original Civil Unions bill was passed.

What I’ve seen of the film so far is incredible: touching, funny, warm, personal interviews with the lawyers, the couples, the legislators who were at the forefront of the marriage equality movement — who started something that, when they began it, was not a nationally controversial issue because it seemed, at that time, entirely outside the realm of possibility. But starting at a completely grassroots level, they made it happen. Thinking about it that way, I’m amazed at how far we’ve come, not just within my lifetime but within the span of my memory.

This film has the potential to be both a fascinating look at the origins of a movement and inspiration toward getting us the rest of the way. They’ve started an Indiegogo campaign to try to raise money to complete post production and get distribution:

The State of Marriage

If you can donate, that would be amazing! If you can spread the word by reblogging or tweeting @StateOfMarriage that would be awesome too. All the cool kids are doing it! And by cool kids I mean Ian McKellen and Alan Cumming:



Thanks for checking this out, any donation or signal boost is so appreciated! My ask box is open if you have any questions.

As in any major city, living in NYC means you’re surrounded by a lot of wealth. And I was just thinking about whether I really wish that I was super wealthy too. Then I realized that I also wished I was one of those people who actually didn’t care, or thought I was cooler than those people sitting in their bougie clubs or fancy apartments with their designer clothes. It’s a weird limbo to be in.

Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.

- Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927-April 17th, 2014)

[human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves]

one of my favorites, you will be missed

Congratulations to Chicago’s Urban Prep Academy they are celebrating yet another year of extraordinary success.For the fifth year in a row, all 240 seniors at the all-African-American-male high school have earned acceptance letters into a four-year college or university!!!!!

On Tuesday, the Class of 2014 celebrated their  momentous occasion during a traditional ceremony where they exchanged their red uniform ties for a red-and-gold striped tie - a tradition done in observance of their achievement. 

“The tie represents to me moving on from a boy to becoming a young man and actually doing something with my life,” graduating senior Dumar Harris told NBC Chicago. The mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel attended the ceremony Tuesday to give the students a few encouraging words. Dwayne Wade has also donated $10,000 through his foundation, Wade’s World.
