Those innocent eyes overcame by naivety peered into her soul. Sensing her lie and yearning for the truth. Yearning for a truth too dark for the tender age of three.

"Aunt Eminie, Where’s your daddy? Is he gonna pick you up?"

The adolescent girl was visiting her older sister (“half-sister”, they shared a father) and the seemingly outlandish question caught her off guard. Ah, the mind of a child…she had to protect that pristine mind.

"Me and your mommy have the same daddy, we’re sisters, remember? My daddy is your Papa," she explained, hoping her cunning attempt to dodge the question would work.

Where’s your daddy?” her young niece persisted, to her disappointment.

"He’s on vacation, like your mommy said."

"Well when he gets back will he get to pick you up?"

"He won’t get out—I mean—back for a very long time."

"Why?"

"Sometimes people make choices, and those choices they must live with….let’s work on this puzzle!"

Ever since he can remember, Ross Sonnenberg has been fascinated with space. In his Color Bang series, Ross uses some unconventional materials to create images of solar systems and swirling nebulae. He writes:

With this series I have tried to create imaginary solar systems and super novas using different materials, and fireworks for my light source to make one-of-a-kind camera less images directly onto color and black and white photographic paper.

Illinois marriage bill gains support of Republican state rep

gaywrites:

The bill that could legalize marriage equality in Illinois has found a new advocate — in Rep. Ed Sullivan Jr., a Republican from a northern Chicago suburb.

Sullivan told the Chicago Tribune on Sunday that part of the reason he’ll support Illinois’s marriage bill is because his mother-in-law is in a same-sex relationship, though he wants people to know that’s not the only explanation for his support. 

“The first reaction from people might be, ‘Well, he might be voting for that just because of his mother-in-law,’” Sullivan said. “The reality is, because my mother-in-law is gay, I have more of an understanding and familiarity with same-sex couples.” Sullivan, however, had opposed the state’s civil unions bill, which passed in 2010.

Rep. Ron Sandack of Downers Grove, another Chicago suburb, is the only other House Republican to have endorsed the marriage equality bill. Sullivan said he believes others among the 47 Republicans in the chamber will come around to supporting the measure.

“There is tremendous momentum leading up to this vote,” he told the Tribune.“I think we’re very close. There’s many of my colleagues that have talked about this, that have said it’s the right thing to do.”

We are actually making progress every single day. 

Personally, I’m straight. But everyone deserves rights and to be treated with respect. Go Marriage Equality!
