Ellen's wedding slides: 30% more interesting than your distant cousin's

by Jeremy Hooper

Cute. And since exposure is the key, this is truly one of the best anti-Proposition 8 tools our side has to offer. Even those in Ellen's audience who don't personally know a married gay couple now do know a married gay couple. They get to see same-sex unions for what they are: Bonds of love, just like those shared between heterosexual couples.
