It’s Friday afternoon here in Australia and I’m about to head to a school mate’s wedding. I don’t know when this trend of Friday weddings started but I like it, only partly because I get an afternoon off work. Weddings are bittersweet for me. I love the joy, hope and love that is in the air but it also brings it home to me that I don’t have anyone to marry and as yet in this country, it’s still not legal for me to marry who I want.

This video is from a German soap and unlike the American gay soap characters, these guys get to kiss. So far in Australian television, we’ve never really had a prominent gay couple. I wonder how long it will be?
