I think my respect for these two just went up a hundred times! Powerful and relevant words in support of the gay community. :D
Two women tied the knot on Saturday in Taiwan’s first same-sex Buddhist wedding, a move rights groups hope will help make the island become the first place in Asia to legalise gay marriage.
Fish Huang and her partner You Ya-ting, both wearing traditional white bridal gowns, said “I do” in front of a Buddha statue and exchanged prayer beads rather than rings in a monastery in Taoyuan, in northern Taiwan.
Nearly 300 Buddhists chanted sutras to seek blessings for the couple, both aged 30.
Shih Chao-hui, a female Buddhist master who presided over the ritual, hailed it as a historic moment.
“We are witnessing history. The two women are willing to stand out and fight for their fate… to overcome social discrimination,” said Shih, a well-known advocate for social justice.
“ Gay people don’t actually try to convert people. That’s Jehovah’s Witnesses you’re thinking of. ”

Today is International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. Wear something pink or purple. Or just free your mind. :D
I wasn’t there to see it happen. I wasn’t even able to watch it on tv. I just read about it on Twitter, and saw several LGBTQ friends rave about it. I’ve never been this happy and proud to be part of PBB Unlimited (and ABSCBN)! Airing that kiss between Divine and Mikhaela was a brave thing to do. There is hope for equality!ü
I don’t understand when people don’t get that this woman’s sign is obviously sarcastic. Christ on a cracker, she’s holding a rainbow flag and is wearing Pro LGBTQ* buttons. Besides all that, this is a well known picture that’s been floating around the internet for at least a couple of years now.
