Birds do it, bees do it



As we count down the days to our own Gay Pride day in London this Saturday, our American chums have lots to celebrate, too.

Yesterday, the US Supreme Court ruled the hated Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to be unconstitutional. In one fell swoop, married gay couples across the States now have equal rights before the law to their straight compatriots (and in a separate ruling, the anti-gay-marriage law in California was also overturned).

Cheers all round, methinks! And here to toast the big day is a wonderfully camp version (from a cult movie I have never seen, Tank Girl) of Cole Porter's classic Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)!

  2. Great news!!! Oh, and "Tank Girl" was like religion to most of my friends back in the mid 90s. I liked it but still preferred "Heathers" and "Pump Up The Volume"...

    1. I vaguely remember it being around, but never took much interest.

      "Heathers", on the other hand...now that was brilliant!

    2. "Heathers" is one of my all time favorite films. The young and cute Christian Slater (my only filmstar crush as a boy), the dark humor, the fantastic dialogue - and most importantly, Shannen Doherty:

      Veronica: Heather, why can't you just be a friend? Why do you have to be such a mega-bitch?
      Heather Duke (Miss Doherty): Because I can be.

    “What a way to start my day!! I'm wearing a smile from ear to ear. There is a G-D! Justice is served. Hallelujah!!”
