RICKY MARTIN AND BOYFRIEND DISCUSS MARRIAGE….

There’s still time! Ricky Martin discussed that he and his beau are considering marriage during an appearance on Spain’s El Progama de Ana Rosa. But since he can’t marry in the U.S., which country will we join Shirley Phelps Roper to protest the union? Photos of the happy (for now) couple after the jump.

Well, well, well, it looks like Ricky’s considering tying the knot in Spain with boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez Abella.

Ricky Martin and his boyfriendCarlos Gonzalez are set to tie the knot on January 28, 2012, Spanish-language newspaper El Nuevo Dia reported.

An unnamed source was quoted by the paper that the “Livin la Vida Loca” singer and his longtime lover’s wedding will take place in the city of New York where gay marriage is legal.

So is the couple, who looks happy together, ready to walk down the aisle as reported?

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

According to Ricky’s rep, the Puerto Rican singer has “no set plans to marry,” dismissing rumors of a New York wedding this January.

“It is a completely incorrect report,” the rep told entertainment sites.

There was also a report last year that Ricky, who was awarded a Spanish citizenship recently, will be marrying his economist boyfriend in Spain where gay marriage is also legal. Buenos Aires was also abuzz when reports came out in December that Ricky and Carlos are marrying in the Argentinian capital.

Ricky Martin, who has 2 kids, revealed his sexual orientation in 2010. He revealed the identity of hisboyfriend at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City last year.

Three years after getting engagedat a rally to support same-sex marriage in New York – which was not legal at the time – Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni were married Sunday.

“On May 27, 2012, Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York,” her rep tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera.”

No other details were immediately available.

The Sex and the City actress, 46, and the education activist, 45, have beentogether since 2004. Marinoni gave birth to their son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, in February 2011.

Nixon also has two children from her previous relationship with photographer Danny Mozes.

The couple waited to marry until it was legal in New York state, which happened last summer. “I’m enjoying being engaged very much,” Nixon said in 2010. “I don’t mind a long engagement, which this one is surely turning out to be.”

THE BEAUTY OF DIVERSITY

 

“Thank you, Mr. B. A.”

 

One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned from my father were these five simple words:

“No Man Is An Island.”

He used to tell me that eversince I was but a very little boy. Because he’s been seeing me playing alone, sitting alone, hiding alone in the dark corners of my room since I was very young…

When I grew-up, my dad once asked our whole family to- “Stand together, embrace together, stick together.”

That was the time our family was having a GREAT CRISIS. That was the time my dad resigned from his job as an Editor-In-Chief in a popular showbiz magazine during the early 80’s.

But I didn’t listen to him, the same way my other kins also ignored his command. Only my mom and my eldest sis stood by his side and supported him at all costs.

And me? I faltered away, wanting my independence. Still wanting to be alone.

 

Many years  passed-by. And I took a different path. I always preferred the roads less traveled by. The risky roads. The dark roads. The roads hidden from the skies…

Not until yesterday, May 29, 2012.  A fateful Tuesday afternoon.

That, I realized, I could never be alone. I could never be an island. That, I would always be needing people to ENLIGHTEN me.

 

“We should not kill each other just because we have different beliefs…”

“We should not quarrel at each other just because we do not have the same opinions…”

We should not throw stones at each other just because we do not belong to the same “families”.

 

There’s a beauty in DIVERSITY.

I could not force someone to believe in what I truly believe.

Or, he, too, could not force me to believe in what he truly believes.

He could be WHITE.

I could be BLACK.

The other person could be red…

the other one, blue.

“The Colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the skies… are also on the faces of people going by…I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do?… but what they’re really saying is: I LOVE YOU…”

GOES THE LYRICS OF THE SONG, “WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD.”

 

If we can only embrace each other

regardless of  the differences

accept each other,

regardless of the stubborness…

and understand each other,

regardless of the many difficulties-

this world could, indeed, be a WONDERFUL WORLD.

 

Now, I do really understand.

Why people varies in many opinions. Why I questioned my Catholic faith. Why I shied-away from the Bible.

I may have been disappointed from some people (my fellow Catholics) who were unconsciously pulling me away from my Catholic leanings,

But somehow,

there are still other people.

Other people who will let me realize WHY.

And bring me back again as a CATHOLIC….

And, that being a Catholic is not the reason for all these.

But just the same,

I have to be ME.

 

i have to be free….

and dreaming that someday,

i will marry my same sex….

Sponsors of Proposition 8, a California ballot measure that would deny same-sex couples to marry in the state, are back in court today to ask a federal judge to nullify U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker’s decision to overturn California’s ban on same-sex marriage.

Thank you,

Mr. B.A.

For reaching-out your hand to mine

and conveying yourself

to make me realize

that, indeed

it is a wonderful world.

 

I love you po, Mr. B.A.

ground-breaking news: from ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is beginning to express some confidence that the president’s historic, yet politically risky, embrace of gay marriage may not hurt him in the November election.

In a conference call announcing efforts to get gay and lesbian voters engaged in the Obama campaign, officials said poll numbers on same-sex marriage were increasingly tilting in their favor.

“A lot of recent polls show that support for gay marriage across the country is growing,” said Clo Ewing, an Obama campaign spokeswoman.

That includes a Washington Post-ABC News poll out Wednesday showing 53 percent of Americans say gay marriage should be a legal, a new high for the poll. Thirty-nine percent, a new low, say gay marriage should be illegal.

A separate poll showed that just 7 percent of registered voters said Obama’s public support for gay marriage raised concerns about supporting him. For 31 percent of voters, the president’s announcement reinforced their support of him and for 62 percent of voters, it did not make a difference, according to the NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll.

Immediately following Obama’s announcement of support for gay marriage, White House and campaign aides readily acknowledged that the political fallout was unclear. Obama himself said it was “very hard to say” whether the issue would hurt him in his fall campaign against presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Despite the new national polling, Obama’s embrace of gay marriage comes with political risks. Thirty states have voted against gay marriage, including North Caroline, a key battleground state where voters approved a ban on same-sex unions the day before Obama announced his public support in a television interview.

 

 

“how to speak like a teenage conyo” by kevin vitug

KEVIN VITUG: theater and indie film actor does a hilarious vid about “teenage conyos.

a lot is in store for kevin vitug now.

 

It was indie film actor Jonas Gruet who first mentioned to me about this vid. We were then at the casting call for Cinemalaya 2012.

Director Joey Reyes, I heard, was so amazed and so impressed to this vid by Mr. Kevin Vitug, imitatting “teenage conyos” (or, high society’s teenage ‘impressarios’?). He immediately contacted Kevin and gave him a BIG HANDSHAKE!

LAUGH TILL YOU DROP. Hoping this vid will set a CHANGE.

Haha.
