Gay marriage was never intended for everyone

Gay marriage was never intended for everyone - and certainly NOT the immature shagg and forget generation.

Even guys that form long term relationships (longer than a week to 5 years) should NOT marry, - Or we are going to see the splattering of sour bitches ripping each other apart in the tabloids in such a savage manner it will make a bad bitch fight in Dynasty seem like an episode of Happy Families.

I simply cant wait for one of the big "celebrity gay marriages" to fail and watch our tabloids swarm - The smell of flies will be all over it.

BUT I strongly support very long term devoted couples in exercising their new rights in the new (LABOUR) law that now grants equality with the heterosexual marriage rights.

In the last 25 years I have seen many cases where one man in a partnership has died and the guy that was his devoted partner has his rights pushed aside as the "legal next of kin" move in and take over.
From issues such as his funeral to the deeds of the house, the bank accounts, personal items that you may have bought together or each other - are all swept away - and there was nothing you could have done about it.

As a member of the gay community I applaud everyone that have proved the cynics wrong and do have a long stable, fruitful relationships into old age.
It is our generation that remember the days before we joined the Gay Liberation Front. - We supported every struggle even if we did not fully understand it - and we trusted our peers.
This trust in ourselves has generated a powerful pink pound., AIDS organisations that are the envy of the world, Our media, arts, films, television, fashion and probably the organisation you work in often has a powerful gay group within it.

GAY PRIDE has ceased being a protest march and these days it has become a celebration of that thing that is the Gay Community coming together. Who would have thought 25 years ago we would see OUT Gay Policemen marching in full uniform at Brighton Pride - MEGABrilliant!
Much has been achieved but we face huge challenges, the biggest threat is from the young guys who, having entered maturity and discover the gay scene think that all the battles are won that there are no dragons;
AIDS being taken care of,
Gay Rights - sorted - hell I can even marry that barman I fancy.
Money Sex Drugs Booze More Drugs Party Party Spend today's mantra
Racism - Yer lets go on the forums and wind up the old guys.
Ageism - That gay guys 50 he should not even be here. He needs to drop dead. (fitlads)
This is also a generation that's not seen the future. They have not see all their friends waste away to die in poverty of painful cancers or hear them drown in pneumonia and watch their mothers weeping at the graveside - time after time after time.
A quick scan of these forums you will see hourly guys wanting to bareback. WRAP IT UP!

Fuckin makes me mad.

Tribute to Sylvester - By the time Sylvester died on December 16, 1988 of AIDS-related complications, he had firmly cemented his reputation as one of the most original and talented musicians to come out of the disco arena. While Sylvester represented to mainstream America the Black and gay cultural origins of disco music, his body of work included not only crucial contributions to the disco songbook, but also ballads that proved he was a versatile stylist who brought a realness and depth to all his material.
