Kevin And Don Respond To Being Self Loathing

Looking back at their journey from the Stonewall Democratic Club to Log Cabin Republicans, they claim it was one that was actually started by the democrats. After being told that marriage as not a priority on the agenda in 1995, they became disillusioned with the DEMS. For a decade they felt like they did not belong until they met the republicans of the Log Cabin Republican Club and discovered they too shared a dream of marriage equality. This blog is now a digital time capsule of their time as Republicans and moderated by a friend and supporter.

Rhode Island Jumps On The Marriage Go Round

The mariage go round hits Rhode Island. Gay couples from Rhode Island can be legally married in Massachusetts.
Rhode Island is the only state where same-sex couples can legally wed in Massachusetts. That's because it does not have a specific law barring gay marriage.
But when they return home they find their marriages are not recognized in Rhode Island.
In February, Attorney General Patrick Lynch issued a nonbinding advisory opinion saying that Rhode Island should recognize same-sex marriages performed in Massachusetts but the state refuses to.
Thus, there is another soon to be show down. Where this takes the community, who knows but it seems like we are in Holland and the finger in the dike won't do any longer.
