Homo Look Who’s Getting Gay Married Now

A few years back—about ten years back now—a lefty gay academic brought out a book that argued, amongst other things, that the push for same-sex marriage was elitist. It was all about the needs of rich white gay men. Because, you see, the “sluts, prostitutes, trannies, club crawlers, and other lowlifes” that ought to be the sole focus of the gay rights movement simply weren’t interested in getting married. And since marriage rights weren’t going to do any good for sluts and hookers and porn stars, he asserted, the push for marriage rights was illegitimate. A betrayal. Because, um, because the rich white gay male academic said so.
Anyway, I wrote a column at the time pointing out that most gay men were sluts—at some point in our lives—and, like sluts everywhere, most of us eventually settle down. (I should have also pointed out that trannies can get married in most states.) But, hey, some of us could get married and continue to slut around, just like all those straight swinging sluts out there. And gay sluts, lowlifes, and prostitutes should have the same rights as straight sluts, lowlifes, and prostitutes, including marriage rights.
This all came to mind today when I read that two gay porn stars—Brent Everett and Steve Pena—announced that they’re going to be getting married on October 3 in San Diego. Congrats, boys.
