Star Trek's Sulu asks why is Utah's governor being so mean?

Noted gay rights activist and social media socialite George Takei is headed to Utah this week for the Sundance premiere of To Be Takei, a feature length documentary about his life. Ahead of his trip, Takei spoke candidly with The Salt Lake Tribune about—you guessed it—the state’s recent flip-flopping on marriage equality.
“Why is your Governor Gary Herbert so mean?”, he asked repeatedly in a phone interview:

"Your governor seems to believe in governing by hysteria. Governor Herbert is consciously bringing harm to 2,600 citizens of Utah. That’s mean-spirited. He didn’t have to do that. Your governor is trying to put toothpaste back in the tube."

Earlier this month, Gov. Herbert announced that he would no longer recognize the marriages of more than 1,300 gay and lesbian couples who were *legally* married in the state during its short-lived two weeks of marriage equality.
Marriage equality in the state is now “on hold until further notice,” or, as soon as the US Supreme Court tells Utah the exact same thing it told the entire country last June—that discrimination is unconstitutional.

Israel's First Gay Holocaust Memorial

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai joined members of the LGBT community in Tel Aviv park yesterday to unveil a new memorial dedicated specifically to the LGBT victims of the Holocaust.
The concrete triangle-shaped plaque is said to resemble pink triangles gays were forced to wear in concentration camps during World War II, and reads “In Memory of those persecuted by the Nazi regime for their sexual orientation and gender identity.”
A lesser-known target of Adolf Hilter’s Third Reich, gays and lesbians were sent to concentration camps alongside Jews during World War II in an effort to cure what Hitler believed to be “a public health crisis.” Of more than 15,000 members of the LGBT community targeted by the Gestapo, more than half were killed or became the subject of experiments that aimed to “cure” homosexuality.
“I think in Israel today it is very important to show that a human being is a human being is a human being,” said Huldai. “It shows that we are not only caring for ourselves but for everybody who suffered. These are our values — to see everyone as a human being.”
The memorial, which sits beneath a rainbow flag and a flag of Israel, is the first in the country dedicated to non-Jewish victims of the Holocaust and joins similar monuments in Amsterdam, Berlin, San Francisco, and Sydney. “The significance here is that we are recognizing that there were other victims of the Holocaust, not just Jews,” said Tel Aviv councilman Eran Lev.
Check out more photos of the memorial and service over at the Advocate.

Starting 2014 in a jungle paradise is as fun as it sounds, Happy New Year

It is so hard to believe that it is 2014, well into the 21st century, kinda crazy. Luckily I was able to finish 2013 in tropical style with a great group of friends in Costa Rica's Manuel Antonio. Even amidst the cold of Manhattan as the vast and dangerous polar vortex grips much of the United States I would love to brag and show you some photos of how warm I was just last week : )
 Happy New Year and much buttery success to you all. 
Me in paradise.
