Summer Blues

Posted in Life in General on June 30, 2011 by Daddycatcher

Daddycatcher has been a tad bit irritable lately.  His co-workers would probably say, “What else is new?”  But they know better!

Here are just some of things getting on Daddycatcher’s bad side:

N.Y. Town Clerk won’t sign gay marriage licenses – Lady, it’s time to find a new line of work! You are a state official, it’s your job!

Michele Bachmann – And we all thought Sarah Palin was nuts!

New Employment
– Daddycatcher has been sending out resumes for a new job since February.  But every time the phone rings, is it a potential job interview?  No, it’s Sallie Mae wanting yet another student loan payment!

Pippa Middleton – Stop trying to make her happen people! It’s all about Kate!

The New York Times – a 20 article limit per month unless a subscription is purchased.  Daddycatcher can go through 20 articles in an hour.

Shorts As Formal Wear – C’mon gays!  Just because we pulled off marriage equality doesn’t mean that you can pull this trend off.  Brad Goreski…you should know better!

White Collar – Love the show, but why can’t Dianne Carroll have a bigger role in the series!?! She is fabulous!!!

Summer Vacation – Daddycatcher would rather be at a pool with a frozen cocktail or on vacation with Audra McDonald and Chandra Wilson at Disney World!

Gay Pride 2011

Posted in Gay Rights on June 26, 2011 by Daddycatcher

We’ve come a long way since the Stonewall Riots of 1969 but there is still a long way to go for full LGBT equality.  As New York City celebrates Gay Pride today, remember all those that have come before us!

New York has a lot to celebrate today!!!  Thank you to those senators in Albany for voting on marriage equality!!!  Thank you to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his unending support!!! Thank you to all of the gay rights activists who peacefully protested in Albany!!!  Thank you to all of our straight supporters and allies!!!

Happy Gay Pride to all of you!!!

Daddycatcher’s CATCH OF THE DAY: Gov. Andrew Cuomo

Posted in Catch of the Day, Gay Rights on June 25, 2011 by Daddycatcher

From the New York Times:

Mr. Cuomo invited the Republicans to visit him at the governor’s residence, a 40-room Victorian mansion overlooking the Hudson River, just a few blocks from the Capitol.

There, in a speech the public would never hear, he offered his most direct and impassioned case for allowing gays to wed. Gay couples, he said, wanted recognition from the state that they were no different than the lawmakers in the room. “Their love is worth the same as your love,” Mr. Cuomo said. “Their partnership is worth the same as your partnership. And they are equal in your eyes to you. That is the driving issue.”

Thank you Governor for your hard work, determination, and support that you have shown the LGBT citizens of your state!

Marriage Equality Has Come to New York

Posted in Gay Rights on June 24, 2011 by Daddycatcher

June 24, 2011 will be a day that goes down in gay rights history as New York has passed a statewide bill to legalize same-sex marriage.

What a way to start Pride Weekend!!!!

Daddycatcher’s CATCH OF THE DAY: Stephen Moyer

Posted in Catch of the Day on June 23, 2011 by Daddycatcher

There are some fine hunks on True Blood, which returns for Season 4 on Sunday!  But Daddycatcher is a proud member of Team Bill…as in vampire Bill Compton played by British actor Stephen Moyer.  Moyer is the July/August cover boy for Men’s Health.

Let’s Vote on Marriage Equality in NY

Posted in Gay Rights on June 22, 2011 by Daddycatcher

Many famous faces are (or have been) in Albany protesting for a vote on Marriage Equality.  Daddycatcher has written emails and called Senate Majority leader Dean Skelos asking for Marriage Equality to be taken to a vote today!!

New York Magazine is reporting that celebrity chef Mario Batali and four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald are in Albany right now!

Last week,  Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon and New York Ranger (hockey, folks!) Sean Avery used their star power to lobby some Republican senators to vote on marriage equality.

Check out this interview with Cynthia after her Albany visit.

C’mon Albany! Get your vote on!!!
