For people that are registered to vote in Texas, there's an election next Tuesday (November 8). Please vote No on Proposition 2, which would not only ban gay marriage in the Texas Constitution, but prevent any "legal status identical or similar to marriage". So, clearly civil unions are not permitted, but perhaps even legal documents that would give djedi and I some rights associated with marriage (visitation rights in the hospital, next-of-kin type status, etc.)

This is a special election, so turnout will likely be low, which means that we do have a chance to reject this amendment!

You can go to to find your precinct number and polling place.

destroyerj, another friend, and I went to the Michael Jackson singalong at the Alamo Drafthouse last night. It was very fun - lots of dancing and singing. Although my voice is quite sore today (although I'm not hoarse, and my voice hasn't cracked yet! Yay...) I bought a DVD of all the music videos, so that's fun.

George Takei (Sulu on Star Trek) and Sheryl Swoopes (WNBA player, 3-time MVP, plays for the Houston Cometa both came out this week. Good for them! And maybe this will help ease the stigma of gays in sports.
