DC Rejects e-Marriage License For Dallas Gay Couple

spacer A Dallas couple had the nifty idea of bringing more attention to the same-sex marriage debate by making history on 10/10/2010 with the first same-sex e-marriage. Unfortunately, the Washington DC marriage bureau had a different idea - reject their marriage license.

Mark Reed and Dante Walkup, local business owners living in Texas, were married in front of about 80 people. The ceremony was rather typical...except for the 6-by-8-foot screen with the face of DC based marriage officiant Sheila Alexander-Reid looming behind them.

While the married ( couple were celebrating with friends and family in Texas, Sheila was attending digitally from DC via Skype, a practice known as e-marriages. While same-sex marriage was legalized in DC this past March, the statue does not specifically address the issue of e-marriages.

Walkup and Reed couple flew to DC prior to the ceremony to apply for their license. They consulted legal experts and took every step they could to make the service fall within the spirit of DC's laws, even attending an e-marriage conference in Michigan. However, DC notified the couple and Alexander-Reid that their ceremony, and in turn their marriage license, were not valid.

Sheila Alexander-Reid, a same-sex marriage activist, and Mark Reed-Walkup, a board member of GetEQUAL and previously active with the Executive Steering Committee for the National Equality March, are no strangers to taking bold actions. Alexander-Reid said the couple are considering their next steps to stay married while preserving the Skype option for other couples. Best wishes to Sheila and the couple on their efforts - this one could get interesting.

Apple Confirms Removal Of Anti-LGBT App has received confirmation from Apple on the removal of an app promoting anti-LGBT rhetoric. According to Apple PR:

We removed the Manhattan Declaration app from the App Store because it violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people.

We previously noted the app's removal from the iOS App Store, but it was not clear what the official reason was or if the removal was permanent.

spacer No word yet from Apple on other lingering questions, including the reinstatement of a previously removed LGBT social app and the upcoming release of an app from "ex-gay" group, Exodus International. We'll be sure to keep you posted.

For their part, the members of the Anti-LGBT Industry behind the "Manhattan Declaration" have posted a response and call for action on their site in response.

Gaga, Keys, Seacrest And Other Celebs Committing Temporary Twitter "Death" For AIDS Charity

spacer Alicia Keys is organizing the temporary Twitter "deaths" of some of her celebrity friends in support of her HIV/AIDS cause, "Keep a Child Alive". Taking place this Wednesday, December 1st (World AIDS Day), a group of celebrities will stop tweeting until Keys' organization raises their $1 million goal.

The participating celebrities have filmed their "last tweet and testament" videos and will appear in ads show them in coffins to represent their "digital deaths".

Celebrities involved with the project include Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Ryan Seacrest, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Jay Sean, Katie Holmes, Willow and Jaden Smith, Elijah Wood, Serena Williams, Janelle Monae and Keys' husband, Swizz Beatz.

According to their website, Keep a Child Alive (KCA) is dedicated to providing life-saving AIDS treatment, care and support services to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India by directly engaging the global public in the fight against AIDS. KCA currently funds 10 orphan care and clinical sites in India, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and South Africa.

While there are some celebrities I might consider donating to keep off of Twitter - I'm glad that Keys has gotten this crew together to help her worthy cause and intend to chip in a little to bring cutie Elijah Wood back from the digital grave.

Pending LGBT Boycott Of Apple?

spacer Recent confusion regarding where social apps for gay men stand and approval of apps promoting anti-LGBT politics is prompting some debate about whether we should consider putting our iPhones and MacBooks away for the cause.

In late October, the application "gay men's social network: Jack'd" was removed from the App Store, allegedly due to sexually explicit images. The app's developer also revealed that he was previously warned by Apple's automated submission system that the app may be rejected for it's use of the word "gay".

The "Manhattan Declaration" made its way to the App Store, allowing people to declare t is neither affiliated with the authors of this page nor responsible for its contents. This is a safe-cache copy of the original web site.
