Gay marriage. What the hell is that? Have you ever heard it called white people marriage? Or diabetic marriage? Or microbrew enthusiast marriage? Why the modifier? There’s something about the word gay in front of the word marriage that gets people mad. Makes some people hold up signs with Bible verses you have to go look up. Makes me pissed, too. I can’t get married, because I’d be getting gay married. In most places, that word is enough to make it illegal. We’re looking to change that, and nothing gives people that get up and go like wailing the blues. Gay Blues. Come get pissed.
