As part of the Melbourne Queer Film Festival, EqualLove is hosting a debate on Gay Marriage.

The film is a documentary "Pursuit of Equality" about San Francisco's marriage Licence debacle.

The debate is hosted by Addam Stobbs from JOY FM and the panelists include:

activist Rodney Croome AO
barrister Kris Walker from the Melburne Law School

feminist Alison Thorne
MCV Editor Troy Gurr
anarchist Tallace Bisset

It should be a great afternoon and I hoped to be there but I'm off out carousing tonight, a previous engagement which should do the back in again for another week.

Hang on, who are they putting on the negative?

They were going to have the Vatican Princess, but Dreadie threw a hissy fit and refused to participate. You can read all his excuses at his blog. Take a barf bag.

Kris Walker is not on the marriage side nor Tallace Bisset but don't know about the other gay Catholic.

Humour alert: the March 06 issue of Vanity Fair (Tom Ford as Rudolph Valentino on the cover, oh yes, and 2 nude actresses)(I love Vanity Fair enough to steal it if I couldn't get it any other way) has Scenes from the first Gay Divorce: Bruce and Javier break up over interior design issues, and custody battle over the dog, only to reconcile and remarry.
My dearest gay friend spends his working days divorcing couples and is totally opposed to gay marriages!
