Praying for Justice and Equality this Pesach

Today and tomorrow will be important day in U.S. History. This morning the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments for and against Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California after it had been legalized, leaving many gay and lesbian couples in limbo. Tomorrow, they will hear arguments for and against the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was enacted […]

Boston Pride 2012: A Mom’s Perspective

Kendra and I have always loved going to Pride. What’s not to love? Rainbow flags everywhere, block parties, and lots of gay people! Before we started dating, we went to Pride to check out the ladies. After we got together, we went because we enjoyed being part of the fun. We haven’t been very often […]

Adopting My Own Daughter – GLBT Adoption

Today was a special day for us – my adoption of Addison became official! It seems a bit ludicrous that I had to adopt my own child, but it was a necessary and important legal act to protect all of us. Why? Because even though my marriage to Kendra is legal in Massachusetts, and my […]

The Parthenon in Nashville, TN

Welcome to Nashville! … or Greece?

I love oddities and unexpected tourist traps. Take, for instance, the full scale replica of the Parthenon that is in Centennial Park in downtown Nashville. Built for Tennessee’s 1897 Centennial Exposition, the sculptures that adorn the outside were built from plaster casts of the originals. It is an imposing building, though somewhat out of place […]

Sometimes it pays to be gay!

Before we left on our road trip, our friend Meg told us about It’s not that we’d never heard of it before… the commercials are funny, but I tend to not take advice from William Shatner. However, Meg had nothing but good experiences with Priceline, so we decided to give it a try when […]

Indigo Girls in Concert!

Indigo Girls and Homophobes… a bad combination.

Tonight, Kendra and I left Addison with my sister and went to an Indigo Girls concert. Originally scheduled outside, the concert was moved indoors because of all of the rain we have been having lately. We ended up about 15 rows from the stage, which was awesome. I haven’t been that close during an Indigo […]

Advice from a 4 year old…

I spent some quality time in the car today driving up to Portland, Maine. Kendra and Addison were on the way home from S.C., and their connecting flight was cancelled. Kendra managed to get them on a flight to Portland. It was quite the adventure for all three of us – we knew their bags […]

I need some fake boobs for my bumper…

We were driving to school today, and a truck passed us with a set of fake balls swinging from the tow hitch. This was not the first time I’d seen fake, rubbery nuts on a car, but I am still completely bewildered by them. Who sees these things in a store and thinks, “hey, I’d […]

The not-so-ordinary trip to the doctor

The wife and I went to the doctor’s yesterday. I thought it would be your typical visit – check in, get checked out by the doctor, go home. Silly me. The doctor sent me to get my hearing tested. Again, run of the mill stuff… or so I thought. The technician called me into the […]
