Big Night for the GLBT Community at the Oscars

I've heard the Oscars ceremony referred to as "the gay Superbowl." Being a big sports fan, I find that somewhat sacreligious, but assuming that is true, last night was one to remember.

Along with wins for screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and lead actor Sean Penn for the movie "Milk," it was a night of solidarity in the Hollywood community as white knots supporting marriage equality were everywhere.

Let me add my congratulations to Mssrs. Black and Penn and provide some links to highlights of their acceptance, courtesy of Good As You:

Who was wearing white knots?

  1. Sacreligious? Not certain where your coming from with that. Anyway, you do know that there are a great many gay athletes and even gay superbowl fans -- not to mention gay football players? And lots of gay people couldn't care less about the Oscars. The gay community is very diverse.
