To do: Befriend Tim Gill

by Jeremy Hooper

   Multi-millionaire businessman and longtime gay activist Tim Gill (pic.) has reportedly put up $1.5 million for a batch of television ads that promote domestic partnerships and LGBT equality in his home state of Colorado.

Which would TOTALLY make our planned $1.4 million donation look paltry, so we'll just keep it to ourselves. Thanks for showing us up there, Timmy.

The TV spots are designed to drum up early support for a proposed domestic-partnership-allowing initiative, which, if approved by the state legislature, would go to voters this November. Though should the current strategy prove ineffective, look for Gill-financed, rousing renditions of "Rocky Mountain High Because Gays Would Have Marriage-Like Benefits" to come from the lips of Chris Daughtry or Katherine McPhee in the coming weeks. oh-wo-oh-wo-oh
