    Justice Anthony Kennedy has already decided the marriage issue in this country thanks to his deciding vote upholding the rights of gay citizens to legal marriage. Now it’s just a matter for all the states to fall into line.

    John Marks is a complete sweetheart in this video and the picture of he and his beautiful wife together is something I want to put in my photo file of joyful people, right alongside Prince Harry, Dolly Parton and the many I know who have the same kinds of radiant faces.

    But would he be so supportive if tranny rights were the topic of discussion? I doubt it. We don’t need the baggage of the tranny activists standing in the way of LGB equality. Gay men have suffered too long to let that happen.
