CincinnatiPride2012.gifBecause Pride has been so successful downtown, after just two years we have outgrown Fountain Square. Pride Festival 2012 will be held a few blocks south at Sawyer Point.

The Cincinnati Pride 2012 Parade and Festival will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2012. The parade will step off from E 7th St. & Culvert St. (map) at 11:00 AM and wind through downtown Cincinnati, past Fountain Square. It continues down to the riverfront and is immediately followed by the festival at Sawyer Point (map) until 9pm. Festival admission is free and there will be activities for all. This year’s festival will have 2 stages of entertainment, a kid’s area, an expanded vendor’s market and a food court.

The Northern Kentucky Pride Festival is 1-8pm Sunday, July 1, 2012, at 7th & Bakewell St., Covington, Kentucky (map).

A number of associated Pride events take place throughout the city in the week leading up to the Parade and Festival.

BREAKING: Court Won't Rehear Prop. 8 Case

advocate2.gifOnly two things can happen now. Either Proposition 8's backers appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court or same-couples can begin marrying in California.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that it won't rehear a case in which Proposition 8 had been ruled unconstitutional, setting up a possible fight before the U.S. Supreme Court.

After a three-judge panel in February agreed with Judge Vaughn Walker's 2010 decision in Perry v. Brown that Proposition 8 violated the U.S. Constitution's equal protection clause and the due process clause, proponents of the law sought an "en banc review." Such a review would have required judicial evaluation by the full Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and could have included 11 appellate judges, but a majority of justices voted to deny the rehearing.

On Gay marriage—Obama, yes; North Carolina voters, no

Screen Shot 2012-05-10 at 12.07.11 PM.pngReprinted from Greater Cincinnati GLBT News:

President Barack Obama told ABC News today that he now supports same-sex marriage.
After opposing it for years, he said his position had evolved into one that’s more in line with the Democratic Party base and even Vice President Joe Biden.
In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, the president said that his change was based on conversations with his own staff members, openly Gay and Lesbian military service members and conversations with his wife and daughters.
Here’s some of what the president told ABC News:
“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”
North Carolina voters overwhelmingly passed a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as solely between a man and a woman, but not much is expected to change immediately.

Cincinnati City Council Passes Domestic Partner Ordinance

chris_seelbach.jpgReprinted from Greater Cincinnati GLBT News:

Congratulations to Chris Seelbach and the Cincinnati City Council for passing domestic partner benefits by an 8-1 vote. Having openly LGBT elected officials matters Equality Ohio leaders said, “We are proud to have supported Chris’s campaign and his efforts to pass domestic partner benefits."

The measure passed 8-1, with only Charlie Winburn opposing it. Councilman Chris Seelbach, Cincinnati’s first openly Gay council member, promised to introduce the idea as one of his first priorities. Offering the health insurance is fair to same-sex couples.

Covington officials agreed to offer similar benefits, which should be available starting July 1. They said they acted quickly in order to beat Cincinnati.
