Image of the day: "I do"



What could summarize today's Supreme Court rulings on DOMA and Prop 8 better than this shot?

NYPD Officer Thomas Verni proposed to his partner Joe Moran on the streets of the West Village earlier today. Joe said yes.

Verni is the New York City Police Department's LGBT community liaison. Moran is the tech director for Cindy Lauper's True Colors Fund.

Yeah, but the couple behind them are headed for a divorce, and the woman-in-black's boyfriend will never propose now.

It's CYNDI Lauper. Not Cindy. What kind of gay are you, anyway?!

Thomas Verni said...

Thank you all for the kind support. For those who have offered negativity - thank you for that as it shows there is still much work to be done to educate people on how to not hate what you don't understand. We would accomplish more as a people working with one another and not against one another.
