There’s a lot of ice cream happenings lately in the community.

In Vermont, and five other states with marriage rights, Ben & Jerry’s has renamed and is distributing “Chubby Hubby” as “Hubby Hubby.”  The gooey and delicious frozen treat has fudge covered peanut butter-filled pretzels in vanilla ice cream with fudge and peanut butter throughout.

The partnership with Freedom to Marry aims to bring “Hubby Hubby” to more states an in the process bring marriage equality nationwide.


Pucker Up…It’s Tax Day

Same Sex Kiss DayAre you feeling a little protesty today?  Have those victories in Vermont and Iowa got you itching to do something, but you don’t know what?  Have a latte and a kiss.

Across America, same-sex couples have yet to be granted joint-filing status of their hetero counterparts on Federal Taxes.  To bring about a little awareness, Starbucks has been selected by the Same Sex Kiss Campaign as the location of the, well, same sex kiss at 7:15 a.m., 12:15, 5:15, and 8:15 p.m.  To be clear, Starbucks is not hosting the event, but was decided as the venue because of their reputation as a gay-friendly corporation.
