Video: Will you tele-marry me?

by Jeremy Hooper

Last night on ABC's "Brothers and Sisters," this happened:

An environmental conscience? Gay marriage? Indie soundtrack? Hell, throw in a Rosie O'Donnell cameo, and this show's gonna out-liberal an episode of Olbermann on which Jon Stewart and Ted Kennedy are the guests! And we couldn't be happier about that wonderfully unapologetic progressive heartbeat.

Congrats on the impending nuptials, faux couple of TV Land! May you have several seasons of happiness, till cancellation do you part.

**UPDATE, 5/6: GLAAD's CineQueer blog is looking not only into Kevin and Scotty's wedding, but also the history of gay weddings on television. Check that out:

That was an open mouth one. Yes!

Meanwhile, in the county I live in, if your spouse dies.. the Sheriff will come and confiscate all his property for his 'next of kin.' because he personally does not believe in our Domestice Partner laws, or estate laws (there was a will and living will). Not TV true life.

I am glad that Luke McFarlane officially came out and wonder how long it'll be before Wentworth Miller does. Maybe they can get married after the California Supreme Court decision and before the constitutional amendment (if it passes.) TR Knight can be the Maid of Honor!

I am so sorry. Was this recent? I can't say anything that will make it better, just that you could take him to court. especially if you were in the will. It's people like that that remind me why I am so fervent in my beliefs when people ask me why I care so much.
